In one capacity or another (graduate teaching assistant, university line instructor, high school teacher) I have been teaching for much of the last eleven years; my favorite part of my teaching jobs has been tutoring people one on one in office hours, where progress towards learning is much easier to see and sense.

I wrote an award-winning dissertation on the mathematics of voting systems to complete my doctorate in mathematical behavioral sciences. As a graduate student, I taught logic courses, mathematics courses, and a few cross-disciplinary courses within the social sciences, while taking a fairly typical variety of graduate-level mathematics courses for a mathematics doctoral student with a geometric focus (plus an atypical sideline in the philosophy of science and methodology within the social sciences). As an undergraduate student, I wanted to learn everything, so I triple majored in mathematics, philosophy, and physics; I also taught swimming and fencing at a summer camp a few times, which was my first dabble into the world of teaching.

Contact me to schedule lessons in what you may be struggling with. I have a particular depth of experience in teaching logic, discrete mathematics, calculus, and cross-disciplinary courses.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I taught discrete mathematics at Virginia Tech for two years as a line instructor. As a mathematician with a doctorate, I have a depth of mathematical expertise that is particularly useful.
Logic

Logic

I taught symbolic logic several times while a graduate student at UC-Irvine, and also taught logic as a component of the discrete mathematics courses at Virginia Tech as a line instructor there. As a mathematician with a doctorate, I have had extensive experience using formal logic.

Knowledgeable, Prepared, and very cool guy

I was very nervous about the material, and left the tutoring session excited to work on a subject that had previously been completely foreign to me. Five stars.
