I'm a recent graduate from U of I with bachelor's degrees in math and philosophy. I'm beginning a PhD program at UC Irvine this fall, intending to specialize in mathematical logic. I love the puzzlelike nature that math has and the way everything seems to fit together and relate.
I started tutoring on and off back in high school. Since then, I've also taken jobs tutoring math and teaching the math part of the ACT through Sylvan; I've been a grader for a math class in college; I've done online mentoring and grading for Calculus; and I spent a summer as a counselor/TA at a math camp for bright young students.
I love getting to tutor math because I think a lot of people see math in a negative light. They see it as just number crunching and rule following, whereas it's really about exploration and puzzle solving. When a student finally truly grasps a concept, I know I've done my job well, and the look on their face and their excitement is honestly the best reward.
I've specifically had experience tutoring ACT Math (I got a 36) and calculus (I got a 5 on the AP). I have taken a lot of different math classes during undergrad, and I'm reasonably confident tutoring most undergraduate courses. I'm especially interested in mathematical logic, so any introductory logic courses a breeze for me, and I can explain the underlying concepts and philosophy behind all of it. I'm also just super passionate about math and helping others to find their mathematical confidence.
