About Devin

Hello, I am a PhD Math Student at Kent State University, I got my Bachelors in Math at SUNY New Paltz in New York. I am in my second year of graduate school at Kent State and I plan to be a Professor after I finish. I have been teaching for the two years while I have been at Kent, and I started tutoring 5 years ago in undergrad. After I graduated undergrad I tutored kids grades 2-12 in New York for 6 months at a Mathnasium. So I am well versed in all high school math.

I love getting to see students learn. While I have been teaching at Kent, I have been doing so with a grant from Arizona State University where I have been studying and implementing a method of teaching Math that emphasizes conceptual understanding rather than applying procedural. This study has allowed me to develop a greater understanding of how students learn and understand concepts behind procedures than the traditional method Kent had been using. The method has been used for Algebra as well as Trigonometry and I have taught 3 semesters of algebra, and 1 semester of trig (so far :) )

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Calculus, SAT Math, GRE Math

I'm the youngest of six and I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I'm good with kids. I can solve Rubil's cubes and do card tricks that involve math. I like game of thrones, and older Nintendo games. I also might try to tell you a corny math joke.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored privately over the past 4 years, I have tutored college math through my undergrad, and I teach at Kent State. I have tutored SAT math in the past, I'm from new york and students more frequently take that exam. I'm also tutoring two twin brothers simultaneously this summer who are preparing for eleventh grade math, and the SATs.

Linear Algebra

I have taken more than one course where I have needed to use matrices. In my undergraduate Linear Algebra course I got an A. I have my linear algebra text still, and I've studied theory that involves the use of matrices. If your course is an undergraduate course, I can brush up on the material you need to do before our lessons if you give me a syllabus and what I need to know a day in advance. I am a PhD Math Student at Kent State University.

Logic

I am currently teaching at Kent State University, and I am also working towards my PhD in Pure mathematics. Since I am studying Pure Mathematics, I am mainly studying mathematical theory and using logic to write proofs. I have been writing proofs for more than 4 years now.

Precalculus

I have my bachelors in Math and am more than halfway through getting my Masters. I have 4 years of tutoring experience and 2 years of college teaching experience. I am currently teaching Algebra and Trigonometry, but I have tutored other subjects as well.

SAT Math

I have tutored High School students in Math for over 2 years, and have helped students improve their Math SAT score by over 100 points. I am aspiring to become a Professor at a university and am currently part-time faculty at Kent State. I am always patient with my own students, and I motivate them to want to succeed.
