“**Really helpful tutor**”

I graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston with an M.Ed. in LTET in 2012. I have heard many times how many in America are struggling in mathematics, a subject that I consider to be extremely important, and a lot of fun. In late middle school and during high school, I started helping students in mathematics. My cousin Stan was my first

Roman is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Roman to get started.

Roman was really great about explaining concepts I wasn't quite grasping in a clear and concise way. He takes you through problems step by step and I have never had any trouble setting up a meeting with him- even if it was last minute!

Helped me a lot understand stats. He is very patient with me. And made the tutoring session very easy for me being an adult learner. I have mastered a lot of stats term and problem solutions and my confidence has really improved due to his tutoring help. I will difinetly recommend him to all the students that I know that are struggling with math and stats

I had Roman work with my son to prepare for his precalculus final exam. Roman was very quick to respond to my messages and was able to start tutoring immediately. My son liked working with him and found him very helpful in preparing for his test.

I was struggling with my statistics class and Roman helped me so much that I don't know how to thank him enough. Before the lesson I had no idea what I was doing after he explained it to me it made sense.

Roman knew R which was helpful and understood statistics, and we were able to get through my assignments for the most part in 5.5 hours. But I wish Roman had a more well rounded understanding of regression. I had another tutor tell me that the assignments they felt would take 2-3 hours. So I was disappointed in how long we spent on the work. I feel a really strong tutor would have a solid grasp of the material enough to focus in and break it down in a way that was quick and easy to understand, I didn't feel like I got that to the extent I hoped. But, I was appreciative because I definitely wouldn't have been able to get through the difficult material on my own, because I think it might be more on the advanced side, given I am in grad school and my stats coursework was an MBA requirement. Thus there is always a learning curve, and I appreciate that he showed up and helped me get through it, which was the most important factor for me! I couldn't do what he does, and it's great to have someone to help and willing to try especially when the work is more advanced!

We went through each problem step by step and he taught me formulas that can be used in order to solve the problems efficiently. Great tutor!

Math:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I helped many students in Algebra 1 in my high school and college years. I always loved studying mathematics and helping others make significant progress in it.

Many of my skills come from my participation in several mathematics Olympiads. I minored in math and physics in college. I also have a Master's degree in Secondary Mathematics Education.

Differential/Integral calculus was co-invented by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the 17th century, but the ideas leading up to it trace back to the ancients who invented the "Method of Exhaustion". Either way, the goal was always to solve practical problems, especially in physics and other sciences. Examples of questions that can be answered:

How much energy is needed to launch a 1000 ton shuttle into near-earth circular orbit? (Physics)

If you want to make an open rectangular box of maximum volume and have 10000 sq. cm. of cardboard to use, what should be the dimensions? (Optimization).

etc.

High school calculus covers the topics covered in the first two semesters of college calculus discipline and introduces you to the most fundamental concepts in the subject so you can answer questions such as these two and many more.

I took AP calculus (BC level) when I was a senior in high school and got my perfect 5. Since then I took more advanced courses in the subject and also took Physics all the way up to Quantum Mechanics.

I have been exposed to Discrete Mathematics since early high school, and have used a lot during my undergraduate studies, most notably in context of computer science. My exposure to it included Combinatorics, Graph Theory, etc. There was also some coverage of cryptography near the end of a college level course.

As for the Number Theory, I was exposed most of the basic concepts from early middle school, and in high school, I attended PROMYS, which covered it at the college level. I haven't put Number theory to practical use very often, but did apply it during my college curriculum in math and computer science.

During my college education, I helped many students in both subjects. For Discrete Math, I sometimes like bringing up some of the areas of recreational mathematics (Games and Puzzles), since this is the most natural way to get the students interested.

I helped many students in Geometry in my high school and college years. I always loved studying mathematics and helping others make significant progress in it.

In Linear Algebra, linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, and linear transformations are studied. Although a few concepts, such as solving linear equations dates back to the ancients, a number of important matrix concepts like determinants and eigenvalues/eigenvectors were developed more recently and gave rise to the modern areas of the subject.

Examples of applications:

1. Systems of linear equations occur when using Kirchhoff's laws in Physics to solve for currents/resistances in electric circuits.

2. Matrix transformations are used extensively by computer graphics systems. For example OpenGL makes extensive use of vectors and matrices to render objects in 2D/3D.

3. In classical Mechanics the principal rotation axes of a body are parallel to the eigenvectors of the moment of inertia tensor (3 by 3 matrix "I" in this case). In a motor, for example, if the axis of rotation is not principal, vibration occurs which can damage the system. That's because the angular momentum (L=Iw) and angular velocity (w) are not alligned with each other.

I took the course as an undergraduate and was one of the best students in the class. Since then, I helped a number of students with this subject during my college studies. In doing so, I emphasized applications of the concepts so that the students are aware of the subject's importance and can grasp the concepts more easily.

I also applied it both in my science classes and outside of school including programming some geometry-based applications including one written in OpenGL.

I took mathematical logic during my undergraduate education. The topics included boolean algebra, theorem proving via rules of inference, and later, equation logic. Part of the curriculum revolved around proving certain major results, including the completeness theorem for boolean algebra, and the compactness theorem. I helped a number of students with solving logic problems. I emphasize the fact that practicing logic strengthens one's ability to think in many different school disciplines. I also mention that solving many puzzles, which many of us like doing in our spare time, requires logical thought.

I helped many students in Prealgebra in my high school and college years. I always loved studying mathematics and helping others make significant progress in it.
