About Scott


Bio

I'm available for tutoring Sundays through Thursdays from 12 - 8 CST, generally speaking.

I'm happy to meet regularly or on an as-needed basis.

In person, I like to meet on the UW-Madison campus at Union South or at Memorial Library where you can reserve study rooms but I'm open to meeting other places. If you're interested in meeting over video, then see down below for more information.

I'm available for tutoring Sundays through Thursdays from 12 - 8 CST, generally speaking.

I'm happy to meet regularly or on an as-needed basis.

In person, I like to meet on the UW-Madison campus at Union South or at Memorial Library where you can reserve study rooms but I'm open to meeting other places. If you're interested in meeting over video, then see down below for more information.

As for my background, I earned a BS in math from Madison in 2011. As a student I tutored calculus in the Mathlab at the University of Wisconsin - Madison for a couple of years and then went on to grade papers for the math department. I've been doing some private tutoring since then.

If we meet, I suggest bringing some problems to work on that you've already attempted or a list of specific questions. It makes a good starting point.

My focus has been on calculus from one to several variables, advanced calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and modern/abstract algebra. I create exercises and problem sets on topics in these areas to bring to meetings.

*Online Meetings*
For online meetings I use the Wyzant paltform or else Zoom. In advance, you would let me know the topics you might want to cover and any relevant subject level info such as which text you're studying from and the sections therein, or whether there are some specific problems or types of problems you anticipate warranting our attention. For our meeting I would have documents uploaded with relevant exercises or problems. I'm open to other ideas too.

*Cancellation/Rescheduling*
I need a 16-hour notice to cancel or reschedule; otherwise, I charge 50% of the meeting rate. I spend considerable time preparing for meetings.

Calculus

Calculus

I studied pure math at Wisconsin - Madison where I tutored calculus at all levels in the university's drop-in Mathlab for a couple of years. I've been doing some private tutoring since graduation. I've also taught a non-credit, first-semester calculus course (independent of any institution, so a labor of love) which was designed to offer more depth but less breadth than a typical course. The course focused on techniques (as usual) and on understanding and appreciating some of the proofs of the techniques. If you're a UW-Madison student in Calculus II, then I can provide exercises to aid in understanding the definition of little-oh, and on when and how to apply the theorems about little-oh.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I earned a BS in math from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I completed an undergraduate course in differential equations as part of the degree and earned perfect scores on the exams. 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, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Edwards and Penney, and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Strang.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I completed two undergraduate courses in linear algebra as part of my math degree at University of Wisconsin - Madison. One course was computational while the other was proof-based. I earned As in both. The texts used were Elementary Linear Algebra by Anton and Linear Algebra: Gateway to Mathematics by Messer. Since then I've been tutoring students at UW - Madison in linear algebra at the computational and proof-based levels. I also work with students taking a differential equations / linear algebra course which uses linear algebra to solve systems of differential equations. The texts usually used for these courses are Elementary Linear Algebra with Applications by Kolman and Hill, Linear Algebra by Friedberg, Spence, and Insel, and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Edwards and Penney.

Extra help

He not only helped me with my math, but also gave insight on classes to take and course loads for upcoming semesters!

Calli, 13 lessons with Scott

Most Professional tutor ever!

He helps me prepare for my exam that related to the linear algebra. He knows everything and teaches me to solve problems in different ways! Will find him again for math. :)

Helpful first lesson

Scott helped me come up with a strategy for the summer that will get me prepared for my PhD studies. He's thorough and patient, and I have decided to hire him for the summer

Great Tutor, Patient & Knowledgeable

Scott helped me get through a tough assignment and was able to explain everything step by step in order to help me understand it. He was very patient and waited for me to process what he had just told me in order for me to fully understand everything we went over. It was a great session and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a tutor!

Linear Algebra Pro

Scott is a math pro who communicates with you about your specific needs and addresses how to tackle the difficult topics. He readily goes above and beyond to ensure clarity and comprehension.

Theresa, 125 lessons with Scott

Knows UW Math Ciriculumn Very Well

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.
