About Brandon

My name is Brandon R. and I have a great passion for Mathematics. I hold a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Math coupled with a minor in Actuarial Mathematics, a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Applied Mathematics for Business, as well as a B.S. in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Although it is probably self-evident that I am passionate about mathematics; my true passion lies in the enlightenment of others who, at times, may struggle with the subject. More specifically, I derive great satisfaction from seeing it "click" for someone previously struggling with a mathematical concept. In addition to mathematics coursework at all school levels, I also tutor the Redesigned SAT (Math/Reading/Writing), the ACT (MATH/READING), as well as the ASVAB. Thus, I am in a unique position to ensure that all of my students are more than adequately prepared and performing at the height of their potential come test time. Feel free to message me anytime with any questions, concerns, etc.. I am a highly reasonable person who loves to help people succeed, so if there's ever any issue preventing you from my services, just let me know and I'll do what I can to remedy it.

Best Regards,

Brandon R.

At 18 I was planning on joining the US Navy. Went to MEPS for the ASVAB and physical where I scored a 97 out of 99 and thus was eligible for virtually any position.
I decided instead to go to college and when I graduated began to pursue an officer commission where I again scored a 97 on a practice version of the exam in the recruitment office.

Calculus

I have take n calculus I-IV, advanced calculus of a single variable, and advanced calculus of several variables. Calculus was integral in forming my love for mathematics as it begins to define the way the world works through mathematical expression. This is why mathematics as "the universal language," as it is relevant and consistent worldwide!

Differential Equations

I haven taken differential equations and excelled in the subject. Moreover I have taken statistics and advanced calculus courses that have allowed me to enhance and utilize the concepts. Furthermore, I have have had the opportunity to integrate my knowledge in the subject to operate computerized mathematical programs such as matlab and lindo.

Likewise, I've tutored l children of friends and relatives in their elementary high school curriculum education. In addition, I know how to explain mathematical techniques simply and am patient and persistent.

Geometry

I have taken several advanced courses in geometry throughout my academic career. Since high school geometry I naturally grasped the concepts and began to love the thoroughness and systematic methods that proofs provide. In college I took several courses pertaining to both Euclidean and Non-Euclidean geometry. My fascination with this subject lies int he history and applications that mankind has implemented since ancient times.

Linear Algebra

I have taken and excelled at every component of linear algebra. From matrices to determinant theory, I am thoroughly knowledgeable in the topic.

Logic

I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics combined with a minor in Actuarial Mathematics as well as a B.A. in Applied Mathematics for Business from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I was inducted and am a member of the national honor society for mathematics, Pi Mu Epsilon, and am a recipient of the S.M.A.R.T Grant for exhibiting excellence in all areas of mathematics. I have taken virtually every undergraduate Math course offered including passed above average. Also, I have taken courses in Abstract (Modern) Algebra and Statistical Probability 1 & 2 which utilizes logical sets to prove solutions in N space categorically and utilizes Probability theory to deduce statistical likelihood of random events (not)-occurring, respectively.
I've also studied and utilized logic in courses such as Design of experiments in Hypothesis testing as well as Operations Research and Deterministic Models in carrying out optimization solutions to complex allocation of resource problems, for example. I also took college philosophy in which I received an A. Likewise, I've assisted other students regularly in all of these courses both on and off campus.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is where it all began for me. In 7th grade, it unlocked the door to what would become everything I know and love about Mathematics. Variables are introduced as well as systems of equations and 2-dimensional graphs. Really, this course provides the basics for all else to build upon and the concepts learned are the foundation that gave me confidence in my mathematical abilities.

Precalculus

Precalculus, much the same way as prealgebra is to algebra, is fundamental to understanding the concepts and provides the tools necessary to be successful in calculus. Here we begin to find roots of and graph polynomials, defining functions, and incorporating trigonometry by learning to convert between radians and degrees s well as graphing trigonometric functions. Also, students begin to learn about vectors and matrices. I excelled in this course both in 11th grade and my first year of college and prepared me for the complex and depth of concepts learned in calculus.

Probability

Throughout my degree program in Mathematics, I took several courses pertaining to and utilizing concepts of probability. In intro to statistics and probability you discover the different methodologies and tables used dependent on sample sizes beginning with the normal "bell" curve and determining likelihood of events occurring given arbitrary numbers. Also, permutations and combinations are introduced in later courses. T-tables, z-charts, testing null hypothesis, and finding 'p' values are among the many concepts learned in probability. I used these concepts consistently in intro to statistics and probability, Statistics I and II, research methodology courses, and design of experiments just to name a few.

Psychology

I hold a B.S. in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and have tutored my peers in the subject. My UGPA in Psychology was 3.9. I am also a member of PSI-CHI: the National Honor Society for Psychology.

SAT Math

SAT Math encompassed everything I learned in mathematics from prealgebra to algebra II. It also incorporated Algebra and geometry considerably. I received a 1350 out of 1600 on my SAT's, however the scoring has since changed to include a writing portion for a total of 2400 points. Of my 1350, my math portion was 750 out of 800 points. This was a reflection of all my mathematical knowledge learned and retained in school up until that time and is an important factor for university acceptance.

SAT Reading

I have taken and scored well on the SAT and GRE test, especially on the verbal components. I know how and have tutored students in reading comprehension, grammar, and punctuation at the high school and college levels for friends and family. Also, I am an ETS rater for the SAT and thus have extensive experience in grading the writing portion of the revised SAT and have access to many useful study aids.

SAT Writing

I currently grade the redesigned SAT writing section for Education Training Service, ETS, who administers this and other standardized testing instruments. I work as a Rater, responsible for extensive knowledge and implementation of the rubric for scoring these essays. I have analyzed and assessed hundreds of them- scoring consistently and accurately.

STAAR

I have been helping elementary/middle/high school students in preparation for end of grade testing across many states for approximately 12 years. I am thoroughly familiar with the curriculum of third to eighth grad english, science, social studies, writing, and mathematics for which this test pertains. I myself have completed all of those grades. Additionally, I hold B.S. in Mathematics from UNC Charlotte, as well as a B.A in Applied Mathematics for Business, a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Actuarial Mathematics. Moreover I have an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts & Science (General Studies) of which I earned a 4.0 GPA. I have been tutoring students successfully throughout my academic and personal career as well. Lastly, I am employed as an exam rater by ETS (Education Training Service)- the organization who administers not only the STAAR test but the SAT, ACT, and GRE as well.

Trigonometry

Iv'e taken Trigonometry (or Algebra II & III) in high school and utilized it's concepts throughout various higher level mathematics courses such as calculus and college level geometry. Concepts such as understanding angles, right triangles as they relate to the unit circle to determine sine,cosine, and tangent as well as their inverses are integral and unlimited in the applications involved in future mathematical concepts and courses. I am thoroughly knowledgeable in all areas of trigonometry and explaining relative material to students.
