About Amanda

I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at UW Madison, and I eventually hope to become a professor at a school that allows me to focus on teaching. I have always been passionate about teaching, and especially about encouraging women in STEM. Most of my free time in college was spent teaching in a variety of capacities, from individual tutoring to larger class settings.

My undergraduate majors were Mathematics, Computer Science, and Biology, so I am comfortable and have experience tutoring in all of those areas. I love guiding students to the correct answer, and love seeing the looks on their faces when they understand a difficult concept or problem.

I have been tutoring math for the past five years, and am currently a teaching assistant for Discrete Math. Although I am pursuing a Ph.D. in C.S., my focus is on the more mathematical side, and I will continue to take math classes throughout my degree. I believe that every student is capable of being good at math, but that the standard teaching methods do not work for everyone. My goal is to introduce different types of thinking to find one that works best for the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

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.

Discrete Math

During my undergraduate education, I was a mathematics major and took discrete math as well as advanced classes that relate to the subject. I graded problem sets for the class one semester, and tutored individual students for many semesters. Currently, I am a teaching assistant for discrete math at UW Madison. I am responsible for grading problem sets and leading discussion sections.
