I have a B.S specializing in mathematics from The Evergreen State College. Evergreen is renowned for its interdisciplinary studies and unorthodox teaching methods where I was able to gain extensive mathematical experience in many different contexts while writing sophisticated computer applications for applied mathematics. I believe that the mathematical skills, presentation skills, and mathematical exploration skills I had gained from the Evergreen State College would make for an immensely immersive and capacious educational experience to motivate and help excel your student's mathematical abilities. The mathematics classes at Evergreen emphasize the problem solving process of mathematics rather than the drills which is what turns most students off within the subject. I believe that this more critical thinking oriented teaching method is what is essential in understanding the creative leaps and thought processes behind mathematical problem solving which is often left out in contemporary mathematical education. I believe my years of studying mathematics in this context, writing very rigorously about the conceptual manipulations used to solve problems, is what would set me apart from other mathematics majors seeking similar tutoring positions. These methods are applicable from algebra to calculus and beyond.

My educational background in mathematics is extensive, having had many classes above calculus and differential equations including nonlinear dynamics, partial differential equations, vector calculus, calculus of variation, and many others. Since I have learned these subjects in both an applied and pure mathematical setting. Additionally, I have a broad knowledge in probability and statistics which I have learned to the level required by the notorious P/1 actuarial mathematics exam.

I also have a masters in business analytics using mathematics and computer programing to solve enterprise-level business problems using data.
