“**A gem!!!**”

Credentials:

I am a graduate with honors from Connecticut College with a double major in mathematics and philosophy. I have studied nearly every area of mathematics up to the undergraduate or graduate level. In high school, I took AP courses in statistics (5 on exam) and BC calculus (4 on exam). In college, in addition to my coursework I

Background Check:
Passed

Kyle 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 Kyle to get started.

Kyle is everything you could wish for in a tutor. He is warm and creative. He tailors his lessons to suit the learning style and character of his student. He is unfailingly on time and enthusiastic. He is great. Highest possible recommendation.

Update: Having completed another month with Kyle, I can only say that he is surpassing his own high standards.

His love of math is infectious, and his sensitivity to the needs of the student really remarkable. A real find!!!

Kyle helped me prepare for my Praxis II tests which covered Algebra, Geometry, Trig, Functions, Discrete Mathematics, Data Analysis and Statistics, Matrix Algebra, Probability, and some Calculus.

We worked together once per week for several months and as the test date approached met twice per week. Kyle arrived on time ready to work and was flexible in scheduling our sessions.

Even though Kyle was unfamiliar with the format of the test (which is specifically designed for those wishing to obtain certification as a high school math teacher), he knew a vast amount about each of topics and we were able to work through all of the skills and concepts to be assessed. Further, he understands how to attack a standardized test and maximize your potential to do well.

With so much information to master in such a short time, I sometimes felt overwhelmed. Kyle was patient with me and always encouraged me to stay focused and helped me to set goals. At the end of each session we had a plan for the next session which made me feel comfortable and focused.

I would recommend Kyle to others who are studying for a standardized exam or just need help in math.

Test Preparation:

ACT 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.

ACT math covers the areas of math that I enjoy most- creative, out-of-the-box problem solving. While it certainly draws from other areas I'm comfortable in (Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Logic), it feels like it's own fresh approach to thinking about math. I love sharing my passion for solving unique problems, and ACT math is the perfect subject to do it!

I completed Discrete Math and Graph Theory (which uses discrete math) in college with an A in both courses. Various parts of discrete math were used in all the other math courses I took as well. I used elements of discrete math and graph theory to invent a new online authentication method. The company I worked for (RSA security) has filed for a patent and listed me as the primary inventor.

I have played guitar for over 14 years, was two courses shy of a third major in music while in college, and I am currently working in a recording studio. I have been around music my whole life and it continues to be a daily activity. I think my approach to teaching music differs from the norm in that it is more conceptual and ear-based. I can teach how to read music, analyze chords, etc., but I'd rather teach students how to listen to it and think about it.

I was a double major in Mathematics and Philosophy--the two subjects that deal in logic the most. Courses I took in discrete mathematics, set theory, graph theory, modern philosophy, etc., used logic as a foundational element of the course, using logical symbols in proofs, argument reductions, etc. was a daily task.

I majored in Philosophy at Connecticut College and was awarded the Anita and Eugene TeHennepe Prize for enhancing Philosophical life on campus. I have studied many areas of both analytical and phenomenological philosophy, which specific interest in life and death, the self, aesthetics, and philosophy of law. Since my other major was mathematics, I also feel very comfortable with the principles of logic.

While majoring in math I covered probability in many of the courses I took, but it was most prominent in discrete mathematics. We calculated specific probabilities, created situations that would have certain probabilities, and did many formal proofs that used probability. I feel comfortable helping students work in any area of probability up to advanced college-level courses specifically focusing on probability- at that point you probably know more than me!
