About Jody


Bio

I tutored all levels of undergraduate mathematics at UT-Austin for 7 years, through UT's Learning Skills Center.

My experience includes tutoring both engineering and business calculus students, as well as students in differential equations. However, I also have helped students in pre-calculus, linear algebra, college algebra, and survey math courses outside of the sciences.

I tutored all levels of undergraduate mathematics at UT-Austin for 7 years, through UT's Learning Skills Center.

My experience includes tutoring both engineering and business calculus students, as well as students in differential equations. However, I also have helped students in pre-calculus, linear algebra, college algebra, and survey math courses outside of the sciences.

My tutoring goal is to determine what level of competency a student has with their mathematics course, and to provide tutoring that develops that competency with the material covered by their course - "find the student's ability, and work from there". I am willing to work with students who are struggling, as well as students who are exceptional.

When a student comes to a tutoring session, I prefer that they come prepared with questions about the text or class notes and/or a first attempt at any homework. However, if needed, I can also teach a math topic from scratch.

2 years tutoring ACC statistics class, 5+ years tutoring business math at UT; courses at UT toward math degree.

Homeschool

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I want to help you build up math concepts, from whatever level you are starting from, to master algebra and better understand why we use it in a variety of applications. As a tutor at Austin Community College, I have seen many students overcome their struggles with algebra. While tutoring at UT-Austin, I have seen how algebra percolates into higher math classes. I have also reviewed K-12 math content, while preparing to be a secondary math teacher, through UT-Austin's UTeach initiative.
Calculus,

Calculus

I really enjoy tutoring calculus, especially in areas where students typically stumble, such as applications of integration, and infinite series. I've tutored the class, extensively, for ten years at UT-Austin and Austin Community College. In addition, my own course work includes being a participant in, and teaching assistant for, the Emerging Scholars calculus enrichment sections, offered at UT-Austin; as well as more advanced analysis classes, such as vector calculus, differential equations, and complex analysis.
Geometry,

Geometry

With regards to geometry, I have used the subject extensively in pre-calculus and calculus, both as a student and as a tutor. It comes up in other math courses, too, such as a "Proof Without Words" course that I took at UT-Austin that was shot through with Geometry Pictures, Theorems, and Proofs. I have tutored all levels of college mathematics at UT-Austin for 7 years, through UT's Learning Skills Center. In addition, I served as both student and teaching assistant for a UT course reviewing K-12 Math concepts, taken by secondary teaching candidates. Finally, I earned a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Pure Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, with coursework in secondary mathematics education.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I'm quite proficient at calculus, through tutoring others in it for 7 years, where the students had all levels of mathematical ability. Because of that, I'm also very familiar with the material taught in pre-calculus which is usually assumed as a student's starting foundation, going in to calculus. Finally, through my studies and competitions in mathematics, both in high school and in college, I have a fairly deep understanding of the algebra, geometry, and trigonometry concepts that are often developed further in pre-calculus.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I tutored Differential Equations for 5 years through UT's Learning Skills Center. I also earned a degree in Mathematics from UT, with course work in Real Analysis solidifying my strong background in calculus, which is a significant portion of the mathematics needed to understand Differential Equations.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I am familiar with multiple topics in discrete math, ranging from probability and statistics to number theory and network theory. As there is some variance in how the subject is taught, potential tutees need to bring class notes and textbooks to sessions.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have tutoring experience in linear algebra as a class, and also in its application to calculus and differential equations proofs. I am familiar with common calculations such as computing matrix inverses and reducing a set of vectors to a basis for a space.
Logic,

Logic

I received training in logic primarily through proofs in mathematics classes taken at UT-Austin. I also received some additional training from philosophy classes on symbolic logic and Godel's Incompleteness Theorem.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

I've used trigonometry extensively as both a student and tutor of engineering calculus and differential equations, as well as through physics. I think it's fun and interesting to verify trigonometric identities; and I'm fairly adept at mathematical proofs.
