Are you struggling with a difficult course or feel lost and need some guidance? This is where I can help.

I focused on Philosophy/Computer Science/Mathematics as an undergraduate and an M.Ed. in Advanced Teaching at the Secondary Level as a graduate. Currently, I am working towards a Ph.D. in Mathematical Physics. I have been teaching math, physics, general engineering, and test prep to high school, college, and adult students for several years, and have regularly worked with ADD, autistic, and bipolar students.

My education philosophy stems from a belief in student-centered, differentiated learning, sustainable education, and building safe, positive, diverse, and inclusive learning environments for all parties involved in the education process. I teach in a flexible manner individualized to each student's needs, building their understanding through interconnected examples, conceptualization, and ongoing assessment. Together, these help to guide, clarify, scaffold, and reinforce, while improving self-confidence. I work best with students who are also interested in building a relationship through the learning process, as student and teacher both learn from each other, and enjoy leaving food-for-thought between our sessions.

Algebra 1,

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 2

Algebra II focuses on polynomials of degree two and higher, rational expressions, complex numbers, logarithmic and exponential functions, conic sections, series and sequences, and matrices. The course lays the foundation for precalculus and linear algebra.
Calculus,

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, derivative, integral, and the fundamental theorem of calculus. In calculus two we build on our tools by introducing new techniques, such as trigonometric substitution, integration by parts, washers and cylindrical shells, series tests for convergence/divergence, and power/Maclaurin/Taylor expansions. In calculus three we move into techniques for analyzing three dimensional objects, such as partial derivatives, multiple integrals, cylindrical/spherical coordinates, and vector differentiation/integration.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have been teaching and tutoring Differential Equations for several years and have experience with many versions of the course, whether aimed at engineers, scientists, or mathematicians. 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 special 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). For sciences and engineering applications we have special functions (such the Fourier series and transform, Hermite polynomials, associated Legendre polynomials, spherical harmonics, and Bessel functions). An understanding of differential equations is essential to modern engineering, the sciences, and mathematics. One of my personal interests is the relationship between systems of differential equations, linear algebra (matrix representations), and complex numbers.
Discrete Math,

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.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have several years experience with the Finite Mathematics curriculum as it applies to business, the social sciences, and liberal arts. These include the prerequisite of precalculus, linear functions and regression, finance mathematics, systems of equations and matrix algebra, linear programming, set theory, permutations and combinations, probability (such as Bayes' theorem and Markov systems), random variables and statistics, and mathematical models.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

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

Chess

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.

THE best tutor of all time!!!!

Logan has been teaching me and my sister for over two years now. I have learned ALL my material from him. In my college courses, I do not even go to the lecture, because he is able to teach me new material so so so much easier and faster than the professors. He is incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and very funny! I always look forward to our lessons every week and am incredibly proud to be one of his students. If you want an amazing tutor completely committed to learning at your own pace and style while also having a mentor who supports you and can give life advice logan is your guy! Thanks for everything Logan!

Knowledgeable & helpful Tutor

Logan helped me with modern physics concepts. He was very patient and helpful. I really enjoyed his sessions because he helped me to understand and also covered some topics my professor didn't cover in class but we needed to know. I really recommend Logan as a Tutor for modern physics classes. He helped me a lot.

Luz Z, 21 lessons with Logan

Very knowledgeable within the different areas of Discreet Mathematics

Although this is an on-line tutoring session between my tutor Logan D. and I, Logan is detailed in information explained. I upload documents of the areas in question in advance for Logan to review. Logan comes very prepared to our online sessions and we 'hit the ground running' without wasting time. This is very much appreciated. The White Board on here is a huge plus! I can hear Logan verbally explain the problems being worked on as well as see how he arrives at the end result with the use of this white board. The visuals are a huge help. Logan is patient as well as wiling to explain in detail and in more than one way to help me understand this unique type of Mathematics. Brian M.
