Graduated UF Spring '19 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Physics. I've been tutoring Calculus for over 3 years now. I also served as a Learning Assistant for Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 at UF my senior year. Not only is it rewarding to help give students an appreciation for math and science, but tutoring also helps me to gain a better core understanding of the material myself. This better understanding allows me to explain things more clearly. As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it...

Graduated UF Spring '19 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Physics. I've been tutoring Calculus for over 3 years now. I also served as a Learning Assistant for Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 at UF my senior year. Not only is it rewarding to help give students an appreciation for math and science, but tutoring also helps me to gain a better core understanding of the material myself. This better understanding allows me to explain things more clearly. As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

Therefore, I can approach explaining a problem in many different ways. If you don't understand a certain explanation, I can offer explanations with varying degrees of rigor depending on whether you just want to know enough to pass the class, get an A, or understand it well enough to teach it yourself. Also, I have a strong intuition for what may be going through a students head when they don't understand something. This means that even if you don't know how to put into words what you don't understand, I can still usually figure out whats giving you trouble and try to help.

I've always had a natural talent for math, but that's not to say that I don't understand what issues someone who struggles with it might face. I'm familiar with math all the way up through multivariable calculus, ordinary and intermediate differential equations, set theory, mathematical logic, linear algebra, abstract algebra, complex analysis, and real analysis. I'm also familiar with the introductory physics with calculus sequence, thermodynamics, statistical physics, modern physics, undergraduate and graduate classical mechanics, intermediate electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and particle physics.

So if you're interested please contact me and we can try to schedule something that works, my schedule is pretty flexible.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I completed Elementary Differential Equations (MAP2302) at UF. Received an A in the class and 100% on the Final Exam. Also completed Intermediate Differential Equations (MAP4305) at UF. Received 100% on all assignments in the course.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I am a second year Math and Physics double major at UF. Completed proof based linear algebra (MAS4105 at UF). Course covered linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues and inner-product spaces. Emphasized theoretical aspects of linear algebra however also developed computational tools. I'm also familiar with Abstract Algebra (MAS4301 at UF).
Logic,

Logic

Completed Sets and Logic (MHF3202 at UF). Got an A in the course and near perfect scores on every exam. The course covered truth tables, tautologies, applications to mathematical arguments, mathematical induction, quantifiers, and techniques of writing proofs. I have also since gained extensive experience in writing more advanced proofs.

Knowledgeable and Creative

Worked with Jonathan on Calc II, for which he had a lot of input and ways of connecting the concepts to what I already know (calc II). Didn’t waste time but also wasn’t in a rush, making sure no material was overlooked. Great tutor!

Knowledgeable and patient

Jonathan was very helpful and insightful. He went the extra mile to make sure I understood every concept. He was patient, and showed me several tricks and tips on how to make the concepts easier for me.
