About Ian

I hold a B.S. in Mathematics from UMass Boston, and have completed coursework and research equivalent to an M.S. in same. I have over seven years of professional experience teaching and tutoring mathematics at the undergraduate level in individual and group settings. I offer tutoring in essentially any high school or college math subject, from basic algebra up through calculus and into advanced subjects such as topology and modern algebra. In addition to mathematics tutoring, I have some two years of professional experience as a college English tutor and am willing to help with writing assignments.

My approach to tutoring is quite focused on examples and concrete applications, and as such I prefer that students come to each session with classwork in hand or specific questions in mind. If you prefer to let me set the agenda, please let me know so I can prepare accordingly. I prefer to meet with students on a regular schedule, anywhere from once per two weeks to twice per week; I will book individual sessions if this is preferred, but I do not especially recommend this.

In addition to in-person tutoring, I offer online tutoring through Google Hangouts or Skype. If you have another platform in mind, let me know and I will consider it!

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.

Calculus

I was a teaching assistant at the University of New Hampshire from 2008 to 2013. During this time I assisted students in courses ranging from finite mathematics through differential equations, as well as being sole instructor in courses in Calculus I - III and Discrete Mathematics.

Prior to this position I worked as a tutor at Bunker Hill Community College from 2005 to 2008, where I assisted in whatever mathematics students came in for help with, mostly at the Prealgebra and Algebra level but also including some assistance with Calculus.
