Bio

Hello! I'm Nils Strand. I graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a dual degree in Chemistry (with Honors) and Computer Science and a minor in Physics. I have a good deal of experience and knowledge with each of these subject areas, as well as math in the high school/early college level (I'm willing to tutor as far as uni- and multivariate calculus).

Hello! I'm Nils Strand. I graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a dual degree in Chemistry (with Honors) and Computer Science and a minor in Physics. I have a good deal of experience and knowledge with each of these subject areas, as well as math in the high school/early college level (I'm willing to tutor as far as uni- and multivariate calculus).

When it comes to chemistry, I can confidently teach college-level subjects, including organic, physical, inorganic, and analytical. I am also willing to help with any laboratory-related coursework as well as any topics making use of theory/programming skills. I am indeed currently a Ph.D student at Northwestern University studying theoretical chemistry.

I am also quite knowledgeable in many areas of Physics and computer science. I am an experienced programmer in languages such as C/C++, Java, Python, Mathematica, and Matlab.

My goals are not only to improve student grades, but also to get them more engaged with the topics I'm teaching. It is always my great pleasure to share my knowledge of all of these fields with young, bright students and I'm confident that their improvement will help reinforce my own skills. I like to think of these opportunities as a way for tutor (myself) and student to learn from each other.

I want to be as helpful as possible to any student. I am very responsive to messages I receive. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson! I very much look forward to working with you!

I use calculus in my current research. I can confidently teach high school/early college topics including differential and integral calculus, both in the uni- and multivariate level. I also have a good deal of differential equation knowledge, particularly how to solve linear ordinary differential equations, both homogeneous and inhomogeneous.

Chemistry was one of my majors in college. I got thorough exposure to all areas of chemistry, including organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical, even computational work. I currently study chemistry as a Ph.D, and currently make use of a lot of these subjects in my current research.

Computer science was my second major in college. I got thorough exposure to a number of languages, particularly C++. Some of the more advanced topics I learned is making use of the STL library to speed up programs, multithreading, MPI parallelization, and object-oriented programming. I also have a significant amount of knowledge in Mathematica due to my current research work. I know how to make figures and plots, run complex numerical calculations, and basic symbolic analysis.

I am here for every one of you! I am always encouraged when a student wants to take up an opportunity to learn something from me, as I feel I can equally learn something from them. I am willing to not only improve grades, but also increase enthusiasm in the topics students are learning. I respond fast to messages, so feel free to contact me any time with any questions or to simply schedule a lesson!

C++

Completion of my computer science degree at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, required the use of C++ in many technical projects. In my current graduate school research at Northwestern, I write codes largely in C++ for efficient large-scale computations. I am proficient in skill such as, but not limited to, the use of g++ (gcc) and gdb and compile, and debug C++ (C) programs in a Linux environment, object-oriented programming, dynamic memory (new/delete/malloc constructs), C++ Standard Template Library (STL) and which data structures to preferentially use in different scenarios. Additionally, I am experienced in MPI parallelization, including message passing protocols (MPI_Send/MPI_Recv), as well as compiling and running MPI programs (using mpicc/mpicxx and mpirun). Also experienced with multithreading via C++ threads, pthreads, and OpenMP.

Mathematica

I have gained much experience coding basic Mathematica programs, particularly in the last year, from my graduate school research at Northwestern. I know how to implement functions, both compiled and uncompiled; how to make use of different loop types; reap/sow construct; symbolic analysis with functions, including taking derivatives and integrals; numerical tools such as interpolation schemes, function extremization, linear algebra tools (matrix exponentials, eigenvalue problems, matrix product, linear solver), etc. I have a strong understanding of the Wolfram syntax, including, but not limited to, mapping, rules, pure functions, and function arguments. I know how to plot different types of figures, as well as incorporate LaTeX formatting in figure text (any text, for that matter).
