About Tyler


Bio

Hi, I'm Tyler! I'm a PhD candidate in applied mathematics and I have 4+ years of experience teaching and tutoring mathematics at a wide range of levels, ranging from elementary school mathematics through senior-year university engineering coursework. I've worked with dozens of students over hundreds of hours of private sessions, and have never had a consistent student make worse than a B in a course.

Hi, I'm Tyler! I'm a PhD candidate in applied mathematics and I have 4+ years of experience teaching and tutoring mathematics at a wide range of levels, ranging from elementary school mathematics through senior-year university engineering coursework. I've worked with dozens of students over hundreds of hours of private sessions, and have never had a consistent student make worse than a B in a course.

Why work with me instead of someone else? I legitimately enjoy mathematics, and I make a point of it to teach the intuition and physical understanding behind a mathematical idea whenever possible, rather than just presenting formulas and "facts". Whenever possible, and if you're interested, I'll teach you how to derive the formulas from scratch so you have fewer things to memorize! Having taught classes at various levels and written exams, I have a good sense of what sort of questions you're likely to be asked on a test, and I'll make sure we hit the main points to help you get the best grade possible.

I am *most* experienced at tutoring precalculus, calculus 1,2 and 3, along with ordinary differential equations and linear algebra, but I have tutored AP calculus and statistics as well. I find that these tend to be the most popular subjects, but I can certainly do other things.

The following is a list of subjects that I have experience, and can assist, with, although they tend to be such broad topics that it's impossible to anticipate everything that your instructor may emphasize in the course; for that reason, I prefer to see your homework and notes before we meet so that I can be sure I'm on the same page with the course (and maximize the usefulness of our session):

*perturbation methods and asymptotics
*introduction to proofs, real analysis (including applied analysis), complex analysis, topology
*variational calculus and optimization
*numerical analysis, numerical ODE, numerical PDE
*partial differential equations, Fourier analysis
*mathematical physics
*dynamical systems

MATLAB

I have TA'd three sections of Introduction to Scientific Computing which heavily relied on Matlab for the implementation of various numerical algorithms, including root-finders and polynomial interpolation. In my dissertation research, I have set up and implemented novel finite difference methods for the solution of strongly nonlinear partial differential equations modeling thin film evolution under ion-beam irradiation. I have roughly five years of experience with Matlab, dating back to my undergrad where I focused on differential equations.
