About Jeremy

I have been teaching on the college level for nearly 5 years as both a research-educator and an adjunct instructor, simultaneously I tutor in our tutoring center in a myriad of subjects ranging the gamut from remedial math to English essay composition. I am a Research Librarian with a bachelors in mathematics (minor in computer science), a masters in library sciences, and almost done with my math education masters. I have nearly a decade of experience in research and analysis.

What I do is deal in information in all its forms from inception, to usage, analysis, instruction, and all the way to storage and archiving. A librarian's chief mandate is helping students find the exact information that they need, teaching them how to analyze and incorporate it, and instructing them how to find their own. In short, teaching students how to really become critical thinkers and researchers in an age of bias and information overload.

I also possess extensive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experience, which has drawn me into the realm of open access, open source software, and the various communities and initiatives contained therein, such as the knowledge of various creative commons licenses and digital repositories. These inform my everyday librarianship in a huge, though informal, way. I informally advocate routinely for open access to information sources such as the Directory of Open Access Journals, arXiv, and The Hathi Trust. In addition to my formal education and skills I continually strive to build upon my foundation. In my personal time I continue to teach myself additional skills, brush up on my programming, build and refurbish my own personal computers, and seek out opportunities where I can actively contribute to open source software projects and gaming communities.

I am also an avid listener and reader of intellectually stimulating information outlets, such as the New York Times and WNYC. A few of my favorite subjects are business, technology, open access, and politics; especially where they intersect with the application of applied and basic research. This intertwines with instruction because as an educator there is a need to spark discussion and the imagination, beyond just delivering information to a class. Whenever possible, I feel it best to supplement with substantive outside information. This complements a lesson by prompting additional points of discussion. The goal is individual discovery and an awakened sense of curiosity in all the wondrous things that are in the world.

I tutor in our tutoring center in a myriad of subjects ranging the gamut from remedial math to english essay composition. Each student and class is important and brings with them their own lessons. I do not so much lead a class as become an active participant with a diverse group of individuals. Conducting instruction in this way allows for more effective communication with a wide range of people. One seeks not proselytize from a position of authority, but as an equal with the student. Teaching a group of diverse learners has also revealed to me that as I impart to a class, so too do they reciprocate back onto myself.

I certainly hope that all of this paints the picture of an intellectually curious individual, where what I learn is enthusiastically reflected in all of my work with students in surprising ways.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Common Core

I am currently enrolled in a Math Education Masters Program at SUNY Old Westbury. Everything that I have learned in the program has centered on how to talk about and work with common core itself. Currently, I am 24 credits through this 42 credit Masters.

Computer Science

I possess a minor in Computer Science from Stony Brook and much of my Mathematics training was heavily related to programming. I have intermediate level knowledge of C, C++, Java, HTML, Javascript, CSS, and Python and basic knowledge of Assembly Language. I am quite capably of learning on the fly as I need.

With respect to operating systems and computers, I have intermediate level knowledge of Windows and Linux, with basic knowledge of Macs. I also service, repair, and put together my own computer systems.

Discrete Math

My experience with Discrete Mathematics comes from my undergraduate Computer Science coursework, which involved very intense work in logic. This additionally included real analysis, discrete mathematics, basic logic courses, and so on. My more advanced Math coursework ventured into other aspects such at set theory, model theory, and proof theory.

Finite Math

Most of my undergraduate Computer Science coursework involved very intense work in finite mathematics. This included stuff like real analysis, discrete mathematics, basic logic courses, and so on. My more advanced Math coursework ventured into other aspects such at set theory, model theory, proof theory.

Linear Algebra

My linear algebra experience revolves around my computer science work. Meaning, I've taken multiple linear algebra classes in my coursework as well as where linear algebra overlaps with calculus when solving multiple linear equations. I studied Calculus I-IV and Differential Equations.

Logic

Most of my undergraduate Computer Science coursework involved very intense work in logic. This included stuff like real analysis, discrete mathematics, basic log courses, and so on. My more advanced Math coursework ventured into other aspects such at set theory, model theory, and proof theory.

Regents

I am a research-educator and college educator for 5 years with 10 years experience in higher education. I personally always keep up with what is going on in K-12. Additionally, I am nearly done with my 2nd Masters in Math Education of which regents knowledge is a component.

Study Skills

I spent a year and a half teaching my colleges Freshman seminar class. It is a 3 credit class that touches upon technology, research, and study skills/readiness. The class itself was called HU105 (Collegiate Learning and Cognitive Development).

fantastic tutor!!

Jeremy is very impressive.Prior to tutoring my son, (who is learning disabled) he called to find out everything about his disability, his learning style and all upcoming assignments. He totally prepares for each lesson and follows up to inquire about the results of assignments and tests they prepared for. He is excellent!!
