About Logan

I majored in Philosophy and minored in Mathematics in college. I tutor math, physics, general engineering, writing and test prep for high school, college and adult students. I also work with mentally disabled, ADD, autistic and bipolar students. During college, I worked as a network engineer, chef 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 have taught go (baduk/weiqi) to hundreds of people and currently hold a 4-dan rank (which is equivalent to a chess rating of 2400, master level rating, or 4th degree black belt). I was one of five representatives for N. America at the online portion of the 2012 SportAccord World Mind Games and have helped organize dozens of online and offline events. Go is one of the masterpieces of human culture and I would be more than happy to teach you.

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.

Discrete Math

I have experience tutoring several varieties of Discrete Mathematics, including proof, graph theory and combinatorics based versions. Discrete Math is often called 'real world' math, because objects in nature are broken into discrete packets, whether this is energy, material goods or electrical signals.

GMAT

I have several years experience at successfully tutoring the Quantitative (math) section of the GMAT.

GRE

I have several years experience tutoring the Quantitative Reasoning (math) section of the GRE.

Linear Algebra

I have taught Linear Algebra for several semesters and have experience with both engineering and computer science based versions of the course. I also have a good understanding of the applied mathematics and sciences concepts of the subject, such as linear mapping between spaces, complex transformations, and applications to vector fields.

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.

Great Tutor!

Logan tutored me in Physics. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the material easy to understand. He was patient and kind, and I look forward to more sessions so I can conquer this subject!
