I majored in Philosophy/Computer Science and minored in Mathematics in college. I teach 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 and skills. 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.

I am currently enrolled in a M.Ed program with a focus on secondary and STEM education.

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

ADVANCED COURSES 2019-20: Modern Physics (Physics III) , Electrodynamics (Undergraduate), Field Theory & Waves (Undergraduate), and Quantum Mechanics (Undergraduate).

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 took and passed Differential Equations when I was an Engineering major in college, and have been tutoring it since. 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). 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 mathematics, the sciences and engineering.
Linear Algebra,

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.

Special Needs

I've helped a variety of special needs students reach their goals by understanding their unique situation and adapting our sessions to fit their personal needs, pace and learning styles. My experience includes students with ADD, ADHD, AS, dyscalculia and low-functioning autism, and many other special disorders.

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.

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.

Nancy, 4 lessons with Logan

Excellent Tutor and Role Model!

Logan is brilliant in math! He also knows how to teach in a way that the student learns quickly. He is intuitive and adapts quickly and intelligently to the student's personality and any learning barriers. He also makes learning math fun!

Becky, 76 lessons with Logan

Physics and Trig

Logan does a fantastic job. He has been able to change my daughter by 2 letter grades. Logan professional and personable so working with him is easy and rewarding.

Greg, 9 lessons with Logan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Logan has been helping my son once a week for 4 lessons now. On his last test for AP Physics, he had the highest test score in both classes. My son really likes the way Logan is teaching him, and I appreciate the way he handles him and his professionalism. Shana

Great teacher

Logan is doing awesome with Braeden. He is understanding his algebra II much better. Since working with Logan he has received a 100 on a quiz and 90 on a chapter test.

Stacie, 18 lessons with Logan

Versatile teacher

Logan quickly identified the errors my son was making and helped him grasp the concepts. He also found alternate ways of explaining the new concepts. It's such a relief to have a knowledgeable tutor.

Kimberly, 24 lessons with Logan

Excellent teacher

Logan broke every problem down and explained it very well in order to comprehend each problem and how to find the solution.

Dakotah, 1 lesson with Logan

Effective Tutor

I have twins who are normally honor roll student but were failing Calculus. They hated it, and were stressed out constantly. Logan has helped them understand the concepts and their grades are rising. We will keep using his services!
