“**GREAT tutor - glad I chose Elaine!!**”

I am currently a graduate student and teaching assistant in Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. During the course of my studies I have run recitations and workshops for mathematics courses from the pre-freshman to the postgraduate level, and have planned, designed, and taught two full-credit summer courses from scratch. I have been

I am so grateful for Elaine's help!! She responded to my inquiry quickly and was flexible. She was able to explain everything I needed help with in a manner that was easy to understand, and she is very friendly. Before the session I was so lost. After the session I was ready to take the exam. You need to have Elaine as your tutor if you need math help in the areas she covers (which are many)!! THANK YOU, Elaine.

Elaine was excellent!! Very knowledgeable, patient, with great teaching methods!! I was taught how to do math in simple steps, which helped me to understand all of which I didn't know. The session was surprising enjoyable! I never thought I would enjoy doing Math! Thank you WyzAnt for providing such great tutors!!!

Our session ran three hours working on problems. Elaine gave me a good foundation to build on to finish the rest afterwards.

Elaine met for me over two consecutive days. I had a pretty specific assignment, and Elaine sensed what I wanted to accomplish quickly. She took the time to look over material before we met, found a great, convenient meeting location, and we were able to dive right in. She took time to bring together the material and the overall concepts while making progress through my worksheet. She knew where we had to stop and look at concepts, and when to push through a problem. She also helped with tips for just writing my equations so I don't confuse myself. I've worked with a number of tutors in the past year, and the tutor can make all the difference. I would go back to her anytime.

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 have been the sole instructor for a full course of Introductory Calculus at the University of Pennsylvania, and have also been the teaching assistant at all levels of Calculus. I have been tutoring this subject for more than five years and have experience with dozens of students.

I have been a teaching assistant for the Partial Differential Equations course in the spring of 2015, and was the sole instructor for that course in the summer of 2015 at the University of Pennsylvania.

I have tutored in the U. of Penn version of this course, Math 240, for many students and have designed and conducted interviews for prospective tutors in the subject for the Tutoring Center. I also have a graduate-level knowledge of the subject.

I have tutored for the courses STAT 430 and STAT 512 at the University of Pennsylvania, covering the standard advanced undergraduate probability curriculum (normal, binomial, chi-squared, exponential, Poisson, Beta distributions, etc.; conditional probability, joint probability, variance, expectation, moments) as well as statistics curriculum (minimal variance unbiased estimators, Cramer-Rao, Rao-Blackwell, likelihood estimation, hypothesis testing).
