About Jeremy


Bio

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...

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.

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.

Math

Discrete Math,

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,

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,

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.

Excellent Tutor

Jeremy helped me with my Graduate Nursing Research class work. He has a strong knowledge base in the subject matter. He gently guides you in the correct direction so that you get to discover your own knowledge base while he is there to encourage, explain, or correct you if necessary. He helped me to have a better grasp on the subject. I am Extremely grateful for his expertise! He was also willing to tutor me on very short notice! He really made a difference.

Wonderful and patient.

Jeremy is wonderful. He made me feel a bit at ease with the subject and also validated my frustrations with the complicated online setup for this class. I hope I can only continue to feel comfortable with the material and do well with his continued and patient assistance.

Help with Algebra 2

Jeremy is a patient and eager to find ways to make me understand the material in a way I can actually understand it! He gives me the confidence I need to push foward and want to understand the material! Thanks Jeremy

Understanding and a great explainer!

Jeremy helped me with the Quantitative section of the GRE. He was very knowledgable in his answers and his explanations. Jeremy doesn't just go over the answers to get you an answer but he'll sit there with you until you fully understand it and can complete it again. He's very easy to talk to without feeling embarassed for your needs and spends his time doing his best to help you. I would strongly suggest if you want an honest, reliable and helpful guy to have Jeremy as your tutor. He is really good at math but offers help in other areas as well!
