Dear future student,
My name is Sam. I am a senior math major at a university in the FM area. After I obtain my B.A. in mathematics next fall of 2015, I want to continue my education by either getting a higher degree in mathematics or obtaining a degree in computer science. I also have a minor in chemistry.
I have much experience in tutoring: I am currently a certified tutor at a local tutoring facility. For privacy reasons, I can't name this tutoring facility. From 8/13 to 11/13 I was an organic chemistry tutor at the university I attend. From 6/13 to 7/13 I tutored summer school students in both algebra and business calculus. From 8/12 to 5/13 I did private volunteer tutoring for one student in Organic Chemistry I and II. From 8/11 to 11/11 I did private general chemistry tutoring for the chemistry club at the university I attend. I tutored twice weekly for one hour sessions each.
I also have an outstanding list of awards, honors, and achievements. In this past summer of 2014 I was accepted into a highly competitive research program help at Valpo University, in Indiana. I spent the entire summer doing research in an area of mathematics called pattern avoidance. At the end of the summer my research group wrote a paper titled "Pattern Avoidance in Double Lists".
I have been accepted into an extremely selective study abroad program in Budapest, Hungary. This program is called Budapest Semesters in Mathematics, and it is geared towards undergraduate math majors. Many of the students that get accepted into this program come from Ivy League schools such as Harvard University and Princeton.
In 2014 I coauthored a research paper about Fibonacci sequences. My research partner and I presented our work at the Pi Mu Epsilon conference of 2014.
I currently have a 3.65 GPA and have been on the dean's list three out of the four years I have attended college. In 2014 I was awarded the Rothmann Family Scholarship. I have also been a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society from 2012 - Present. I have been a University Scholarship recipient from the years of 2011 to 2014, and I was the recipient of the Russell Stewart Endowment Scholarship in 2012. If you are interested in seeing some of the papers I have written and honors I have received, I can provide copies of these items upon request.
Everyone has a different learning style. This is especially true when it comes to mathematics. Whenever I am tutoring someone new, I always try to figure how they learn so that I can be the best tutor possible. I am confident that I can give you or your child the help you need to excel in whatever area of math or chemistry your are having trouble with.
I would also like to mention that I really enjoy tutoring. I enjoy engaging the student and making connections, and those moments when the student finally achieves success. I also really like the process of figuring out how a student learns and the best way I can tutor a student; it is kind of like solving a math problem, which I naturally love to do given that I am a math major.
I look forward to helping you or your child succeed!

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 have an overall 3.95 GPA and I have a very firm understanding of mathematics. In addition to having tutoring experience in the past, I also am an active researcher of mathematics; I have already co-authored two research papers. Last summer, I was accepted in a research program for math undergraduates; the program was held at Valpo University in Indiana. I have also been accepted into a very prestigious study abroad broad program in Budapest, Hungary. This program is geared directly towards undergraduate students of mathematics and is highly competitive to get into; the majority of the students accepted into this program come from Ivy League schools such as Harvard University, Princeton University, among many other prominent universities.
In addition to the above qualifications I have mentioned, I really enjoy tutoring students in mathematics. I find it extremely rewarding.
I successfully took Discrete Math and received a final grade of an A this past semester.
Topics that I know and understand from Discrete Math include the following: logic, sets and set operations, methods of proof including proof by induction, equivalence relations, partially ordered sets, Graphs and Trees, Hamilton and Euler paths/circuits, and Boolean Algebras.
