About Logan

I majored in Philosophy and minored in Mathematics in college. I tutor math, physics, general engineering, computer science, writing and test prep for high school, college and adult students. I've also worked with mentally disabled, ADD, autistic and bipolar students. During college, I worked as a chef, network engineer and tutor.

I teach in a logical and straightforward manner and try to cultivate my students' personal understanding of the material. I accomplish this by giving them plenty of questions and examples, which guide, test and clarify their understanding of concepts. If their fundamentals are sound, then students can reason through and apply concepts more effectively than otherwise. It also builds their self-confidence. I work best with students who are also interested in learning, and usually leave them with some food-for-thought between our sessions.

*****
Each school year I offer tutoring in a selection of advanced courses.

ADVANCED COURSES 2016-17: Introductory Complex Analysis (Undergraduate), Complex Analysis I (Graduate) and Introductory Number Theory (Undergraduate).

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 introduces the basic forms that linear and quadratic equations come in and their corresponding graphs, properties and solutions. We learn new tools for evaluating these equations, such as inequalities, factorization, and simplifying.

Algebra 2

Algebra II focuses on polynomials of degree two and higher, rational expressions, complex numbers, logarithmic and exponential functions, and matrices. The course lays the foundation for pre-calculus and linear algebra.

Calculus

Calculus is the exploration of approximation and how functions change over time. In calculus one we are introduced to a variety of tools, such as the limit, continuity, differentiation, integration, and the fundamental theorem of calculus. In calculus two we build on our tools of differential and integral calculus and introduce new tools for analyzing series and sequences, such as power, Taylor and Maclaurin series.

Chess

I teach baduk/weiqi, an Asian, cultural equivalent to western chess. Parents in China and Korea often send their children to baduk/weiqi schools or programs instead of chess. I hold a 4-dan ranking, which is equivalent to a: chess rating of 2400, master level rating, or 4th degree black belt in the Americanized martial arts, kyu/dan ranking system. I was one of five representatives for N. America for the online portion of the 2012 SportAccord World Mind Games.

Classics

As a philosophy major in the humanities department in college I studied a wide range western and eastern classical texts, from the ancient Greeks and Romans to Chinese. Authors included: Homer, Confucius, Plato, Aeschylus, Aristophanes, Herodotus, Hesiod, Aristotle, Mencius, Cicero, Lucretius, Virgil, Du Fu, Li Po and more.

I also studied classic texts from the middle ages to 19th century, including: Bingen, St. Aquinas, Ockham, Boccaccio, Ariosto, Descartes, Bacon, Locke, Leibniz, Hume, Rousseau, Cao Xueqin, Kant, Goethe, Bentham, Mill, Baudelaire and Dostoyevsky.

Cooking

I was a chef during college to help pay for school. I was trained by the head chef at a hibachi restaurant and worked there for two years; after which I worked as a chef at a Whole Foods preparing their Chef's Selection menu. Knife skills, conversion/measurement/substitution, cooking techniques, prep work, kitchen equipment, food safety/sanitation.

Differential Equations

I took and passed Differential Equations when I was an Engineering major in college. I have the most experience teaching differential equations as it relates to the physical sciences, such as engineering physics and classical mechanics.

Differential Equations is the study of how a function relates to its derivatives; and the solution to a differential equation is a set of functions, rather than the value of one or more variables. It comes in two major forms: Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), which deal with single variable functions and their derivatives, and Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), which deal with multivariable functions and their derivatives.

We learn how to solve a wide range of general DEs (such as first-order, second-order, linear, non-linear, homogeneous and non-homogeneous) and particular DEs (such as Bernoulli, Laplace, Euler–Lagrange and Sturm-Liouville) using several methods (such as separation of variables, undetermined coefficients, Euler’s, variation of parameters and Laplace transformations).

An understanding of differential equations is essential to modern mathematics, the sciences and engineering.

General Music

I played the trumpet for seven years, from grade school to high school. I tried-out and was accepted as part of the city and state symphony for a couple of years. I was regularly first or second chair in concert and jazz band. I took AP Music Theory in 9th grade; and Music Appreciation and Exploring Beethoven's Piano Sonatas as humanity electives in college. Over the years I've continued my love of music and currently own over 3,500 albums in areas from classical, jazz, electronic, rock, folk, singer-songwriter, hip-hop, world music and more. I have a deep knowledge of genres, sub-genres, artists, producers, record labels, history, and more.

Logic

I took "Logic & Critical Thinking I & II," "Philosophy of Logic," and "Discrete Mathematics" as a philosophy major and mathematics minor in college. Topics include: syllogistic logic, propositional logic, quantificational logic, modal logic, deontic and imperative logic, predicate logic, metalogic, many-valued logics, classical/non-classic logics, and more.

Physics

I have several years of teaching physics and am able to teach General/Engineering Physics I & II, Modern Physics (Physics III), Classical Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Vibrations & Waves.
