During my program, I spent time studying and researching nonlinear dynamical systems, chaos theory, topological separation properties, and more.

I graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics. During my program, I spent time studying and researching nonlinear dynamical systems, chaos theory, topological separation properties, and more. Despite my concentration, I also love pure math subjects including abstract algebra and real analysis. I am a member of the National Tutoring Association and I have experience in and a proven track record of increasing confidence and performance for students. In my time tutoring on other platforms, I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback including a personal distinction of being "the best tutor [one student] ever had." Other testimonials include statements like: "My tutor is absolutely amazing. He was able to help me ... and encouraged me throughout" and "[Drew is] one of the best math tutors I've had on [this platform]. [He] refused to move on until I learned something and also was very patient with me."

I'm sure many people reading this have heard someone say that they aren't a math person (perhaps it was even you). Often, the sentiment is that one's brain needs to be "wired" for mathematics, or that people who excel in math hold some innate gift. This is certainly not the truth. I am a firm believer in the notion that no one is a "non-math" person. When a student is allowed to discover new concepts in an adaptable environment, mathematical ideas can really "sink" in. My personal style is to put less emphasis on rote and memorization while delving into truly understanding what is being taught. This makes homework quicker and test time easier - especially for those who get stressed during exams. I recognize that every person learns differently, so we will take our time to tailor our sessions to your particular learning style.

Subjects

Calculus,

Calculus

I spent much of the end of my undergraduate program studying nonlinear dynamical systems (mainly focusing on the qualitative aspects using techniques like phase plane analysis). That included discrete systems represented by systems of difference equations. Techniques used to analyze stability and other properties included cobwebs, orbit diagrams/bifurcation diagrams, and renormalization.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

My background includes coursework and study directly in discrete mathematics (including basic combinatorics, number theory, graph theory, modular arithmetic, logic, relations, and pseudocode). I also have done coursework in cryptography (basic cryptosystems and theory behind encryption) and discrete dynamical systems (which covered systems of difference equations, chaos, periodicity, bifurcations, orbit diagrams, etc.)
Logic,

Logic

My degree program and independent study included a number of classes that refined my skills in logic and proofs. These courses included discrete mathematics, formal logic, math proofs/problem solving, linear algebra, real analysis, abstract algebra, and point-set topology. All of these courses rely on proof writing and logic.

Amazing Tutor and Genuinely Invested in the Success of his Students

Drew has been the best tutor I could have asked for. He has been nothing but professional and friendly since I began my sessions with him. He has a real in-depth knowledge of the material and is able to verbalize it to those who are less mathematically savvy. He is also genuinely invested in the success of his students and makes himself available, even fielding homework questions over the weekend for me. If you're struggling with math you should reach out to him

if u do not know nothing about calculus and want to learn, then please contact andrew. you will definately feel more confident and have more hope of passing calculus

Andrew taught me the do and don't of calculus. the common mistakes people make. He teaches calculus from a students perspective and simplify it to a basic level of understanding. After the session with Andrew I know I have it in me to learn and excel in calculus. I thought I wasn't able to comprehend calculus but not I know I can with more sessions with Andrew.
