Hello potential tutee! If you are looking for a mathematics tutor who will help achieve independent competency in your desired area of math, then look no further! By working with me you will learn to figure out your own problems by asking yourself the necessary questions.

I am currently a graduate student studying mathematics at

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I graduated from high school, and then from Reed College with a Bachelors in Mathematics, after which I scored a 168 (98th percentile) on the quantitative section of the GRE. None of these accomplishments would have been possible without a rock-solid understanding of Algebra 1. Moreover, the concepts and skills one acquires in Algebra 1 are invaluable in general for any person who wishes to function optimally in the 'modern real world': it is necessary for the modern individual to become not only literate, but also numerate. The material covered in Algebra 1 (concepts and skills) is ubiquitous across many different 'real world' and 'theoretical' domains: from getting a good deal out of your grocery shopping, taxes, insurance, or investment portfolio, to learning about how quantum mechanics or general relativity accurately describes aspects of our universe in precise mathematical terms. No matter what you want to do with your life, you would do well to have material from Algebra 1 (and Algebra 2) down cold. Here is where I can help you: I already have Algebra (1 & 2) 'down cold' and would love to share my knowledge and skills! I have worked with countless people on their Algebra skills (via a semi-Socratic Method) and have never failed to help someone improve. On top of improving your skills and conceptual understanding, I hope I can convince you that algebra is fun and easy!

With a BA Degree from Reed College in Mathematics, you'd better believe I have beyond mastered Algebra 2. I have tutored many people in Algebra 2 (from High School level to College-aged individuals) using an "I ask, you do" or Socratic Method. I would love to help you reach the point where manipulating rational algebraic expressions, logarithmic and exponential functions, and factoring polynomials are all second-nature, because that's how it should be and it's fun!

I got a 5 on the AP calculus test. I have a college degree in Mathematics. I have ample experience tutoring Calculus. I use the Socratic method.

In order to graduate from High School and Reed College with a bachelors degree in Mathematics I had to first grapple with the concepts that are subsumed under the ominous course title "pre-calculus". Well, I grappled with them and came out on top (going on to grapple with much greater Mathematics and Physics) and you can too! Precalculus isn't actually difficult: there aren't many new concepts other than those introduced in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry, and those that are introduced (Trigonometric functions, maybe imaginary numbers) are mostly tedious to get a handle on, rather than being deep or elusive. I've helped copious students in the past with their Precalculus qualms, and I'd be happy to help you with yours! I follow an "I ask, you do the work, I demonstrate" procedure whereby eventually you will be able to solve your own problems involving trigonometric functions, or whatever else they are calling "precalculus" these days.

Probability can be a difficult subject area to grasp: the material requires mathematical agility and the problems can be hard to visualize when one's intuitions don't seem to match the formulae one is expected to (somehow) master: including combinatorial arguments ('counting methods') as well as means, variances, various obscure distributions.

This is where I believe I can help: I can translate the formalism of probability theory to into your language and examples you understand.

I have a BA in Mathematics from Reed College where I tutored many students taking probability over the years. I still think about probability theory from day-to-day, so I am still fresh on the subject.
