Greetings! I'm Douglas, a mathematics teacher at The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I hold a B.S. in mathematics with a minor in philosophy and I absolutely love communicating math at all levels! I spent 3 years tutoring mathematics for my undergraduate institution, Allegheny College, and another 2 years after that tutoring privately before

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.

3 years of tutoring calculus of single and multiple variables

I received an A in my ordinary differential equations class in college, and have helped students and classmates since. All have given me good feedback. I am confident that I have the skills to educate others in the topic.

I received As in both my Foundations of Mathematics and Combinatorics classes. I have strong proof-writing skills and have educated classmates and other students in this topic. I find the best way to tutor in discrete math is to tune the student's problem solving approach and proof techniques.

I have tutored students in finite math at the college level for 3 years. This has presented no challenges for me, and I have only ever received positive feedback. I find that for older students of finite math, the real crux of the tutoring lies in enfranchising the student and fostering a good relationship with mathematics.

I received an A in the undergraduate level class and formally tutored 4 different students in the topic. Furthermore, I have published research in operator theory, of which linear algebra is just an elementary case of the general theory of linear operators. I understand the difficulty of adjusting to linear algebra, as it is often the first brush students have with upper level proof based math. As a result, I take a pretty targeted in my approach, zeroing in on the very specific difficulties students have and the implications those difficulties will have for future content.

I received an A in my upper level Mathematical Logic class, which covered topics up through incompleteness and complexity in first and some second order logic. I have helped students with introductory logic topics for math, computer science, and philosophy. I have always received good feedback, and am positive that I can teach logic at a variety of skill levels for a variety of disciplines.

I have been programming with Mathematica for 3 years and am proficient in module building. I have completed projects in wavelet image recognition and run testing modules for analysis research. I do not have experience in coding for optimal resource consumption, but this is not a common concern in so powerful a software as Mathematica.
