University of Wisconsin - Madison (Mathematics)
I studied pure math at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I worked in the MathLab for several terms and I worked as a grader for some 500-level math courses intended for majors. I've also been tutoring privately since graduation primarily in all levels of calculus but also in linear algebra and differential equations. The tutoring has been with UW-Madison students and occasionally advanced high school students. I studied pure math at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

As a formal teacher, he was very knowledgeable with the topics covered on my test and had a good idea what type of questions they would ask on the test.
In terms of meeting, he was very flexible and was able to meet a very convenient library location for me as a student.
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 earned a BS in math from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2011. I completed an undergraduate course in differential equations as part of the degree and earned perfect scores on all three exams. The text used was Fundamentals of Differential Equations by Nagle and Saff.
The summer before I took an independent course in the subject under a faculty member at a local college. This course was designed to offer more depth (but less breadth) than a typical college-level class. During the course I undertook an extracurricular project which looked at some assumptions in the method of variation of parameters. I presented my results at a Mathematical Association of America sectional meeting.
Since then I've been tutoring students at UW - Madison in both a differential equations course and in a differential equations / linear algebra course. The differential equations / linear algebra course uses linear algebra to solve systems of differential equations. The texts currently used for these courses are Elementary Differential Equations And Boundary Value Problems by Boyce and DiPrima and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Edwards and Penney.
