About Robert

Hi, my name is Robert and I've been teaching, tutoring, lecturing, TAing, and leading seminars at the university level for seven years now, in a wide variety of subjects relating to pure and applied mathematics. I'm here to help you get a better grasp on your mathematical toolkit so that you can thrive in your scientific field.

Hi, my name is Robert and I've been teaching, tutoring, lecturing, TAing, and leading seminars at the university level for seven years now, in a wide variety of subjects relating to pure and applied mathematics. I'm here to help you get a better grasp on your mathematical toolkit so that you can thrive in your scientific field. My teaching style emphasizes in-depth study of concrete examples to help develop your intuition, and then using that intuition to provide rigorous mathematical proof for the general case of your problem. Whether you're a beginner taking your first formal math course, or an experienced math major trying to understand the abstractions of category theory, I can help you solve problems and reason through proofs, step-by-step.

Most of my experience comes from teaching mathematics and theory of computation to computer scientists -- that is, analysis of algorithms, discrete math, linear programming & optimization, and computational complexity theory. I've also taught a variety of other applied math, such as Linear Algebra for Economics, Mathematical Methods for Physics, and Symbolic Logic (for linguists and philosophy majors). My pure math teaching experience during my time at the University of Chicago includes Abstract Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Commutative Algebra, Topology, and Analysis in R^n.

I'm working on my PhD in mathematics right now, and teaching is my specialty and passion. Along my journey to get here I've taught math to literally thousands of college students. My specialization is in combinatorics, computational complexity, and formal languages -- specifically, I am interested in constructive logics, proofs of program correctness, probabilistic property-testing, fairness in ranked-choice voting systems, and representation theory of S_n and finite hypercubes.

I also tutor test prep. I achieved:
-2350 SAT
-800 Math SAT 2
-170 Math GRE
-5's on all of the AP Physics, Economics, & Calculus exams

Philosophy

Philosophy

I study machine logic, automated reasoning, constructive proof systems, formal language theory, and fairness in ranked-choice voting methods. I've taught symbolic logic to graduate students in linguistics and philosophy, and would be very excited to help you out with your formal reasoning classes. The philosophers whose works I am most familiar with would be folks like Wittgenstein, Godel, Frege, Russell, and the like.

Homeschool

Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is the backbone of pretty much every field of mathematics, and its results show up everywhere. I helped to teach Honors Calculus at UChicago, and I've taught economics and physics majors how to apply calculus to their fields of study. I regularly use Taylor expansions and linear differential equations in my work, and I have experience in multivariate and vector calculus as well.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

In high school I got perfect scores on the SAT math as well as the SAT II Math Subject Test. I also volunteered as an SAT prep tutor for underprivileged students in inner-city DC schools.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I'm currently working on research in combinatorics and logic, which is founded on discrete math. Additionally, I have taught discrete math, algorithms, data structures, and other similar courses multiple times.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I'm currently working on research in combinatorics and logic, which is founded on finite and discrete math. Additionally, I have taught discrete math, algorithms, linear programming, data structures, and other similar courses multiple times.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I've taught Linear Algebra several times at the University of Chicago in several different variations, including: - Linear Algebra for Economics - Mathematical Methods for Physics - Abstract Linear Algebra (for math majors) In addition, I have taught some of Linear Algebra's more specialized cousins, including - Abstract Algebra: Groups, Rings, Modules, Fields, and Galois Theory - Commutative Algebra & Algebraic Geometry - Linear Programming
Logic,

Logic

I'm currently an academic researcher in logic and combinatorics, where I study efficient algorithms for testing whether mathematical objects satisfy various logical properties. I also work in programming language construction and have a lot of experience with type theory and the corresponding intuitionistic logics.
