About Linden

Hello, my name is Linden. I am an experienced System Analyst at a national laboratory with a PhD in Computer Systems Engineering and a Masters in Mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Upstate New York. Over the years I have enjoyed mentoring students in various math and science disciplines. Recently, I have translated this experience into providing excellent tutoring services for students in the area.

I am skilled in a variety of programming languages, but I specialize in tutoring Java, C++, C and most of the math related subjects. My goals for each tutoring session are not only to strengthen the student’s grasp of the material but also to expand their problem-solving abilities. To this end, my work experience provides an ideal resource that I can draw on to provide a connection between the work in the textbook and “real-world” problems.

I would be pleased to tutor individual or small groups of students who range from middle school to college undergraduates. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have a master's in mathematics. I have completed undergraduate and graduate coursework in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and functional analysis. I have a strong grasp of algebra fundamentals and have been successful in conveying this knowledge to the algebra 1 students that I have tutored.

Algebra 2

I have a Master's in Mathematics. I have completed undergraduate and graduate coursework in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and functional analysis. I have a strong grasp of Algebra, and use in on a daily basis. I have privately tutored students in Algebra 2.

C

I have a PhD in computer systems engineering. I have completed undergraduate coursework in a variety of programming languages including C and C++. I have a great deal of experience coding in C as I’ve been a member of an IT department for over 15 years and have undertaken a variety of projects involving C coding from the hardware level to the application level. This experience is most useful in my tutoring as I am able to provide many “real-world” examples.

Calculus

I have a Masters in Mathematics. I have completed undergraduate and graduate coursework in Differential Equations, Multivariable Calculus and Matrix Algebra, Non-linear System analysis and Functional analysis. I have a strong grasp of Calculus as I work daily with physicists translating calculus concepts into coding algorithms.

Differential Equations

I have a Masters in Mathematics. I have completed undergraduate and graduate coursework in Differential Equations, Multivariable Calculus and Matrix Algebra, Non-linear System analysis and Functional analysis. As a member of an IT department who regularly interacts with physicists, I'm periodically called upon to solve a variety of differential equations in the course of my duties.

Java

I have a PhD in computer systems engineering. I have a great deal of experience coding in Java as I’ve been a Java developer in an IT department for over 15 years. I regularly develop GUIs, web applications and do back end programming. This experience is most useful in my tutoring as I am able to provide many “real-world” examples.

Linear Algebra

I have a Master's in Mathematics. I have completed undergraduate and graduate coursework in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and functional analysis. Additionally, I have been a private tutor for many years and have enjoyed tutoring subjects such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus.

Quick response, clear explanations!

I sent out a bat signal last night for help and Linden responded very quickly. Though this afternoon was quick notice, he was able to schedule an hour for an online/phone tutoring session. I was feeling overwhelmed with a Java project and was unsure how the various components worked together. Linden used enough jargon to point me in the right direction without talking over my head.
