EducationCurrently a Junior attending UW-Milwaukee working towards a double major in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. I intend to move on to graduate school to further study Operations Research which intertwines both of these areas of study.
ExperienceThe only formal tutoring experience I have was with an Iraq veteran who had not taken mathematics in seven years. He enlisted my help through a family friend after he had gotten a D in the Calc 1. Through our cooperation we managed to bring him up to a B+, which was his original goal. We continued together to get him through Calc 2 with another B. More importantly, I managed to change his perspective on mathematics. When we finished our work together he was proud of his accomplishment as I was of him as well. I feel there is a negative stereotype in relation to mathematics. Horror stories of teachers monotonously droning on are abundant and often set negative attitudes towards it at a young age. I assure you, math can be fun.
My goal as a tutor is first and foremost to achieve whatever your desired goals are. Beyond that, I hope to inspire you through my passion for mathematics by explaining it in terms anyone can understand. Math has a fundamental relationship to logic which aids us in all degrees of cognitive function.
Aside from that I have always been the go-to guy for help with friends and family members studying engineering or business related fields that have mathematical related issues.
For reference I have
completed the following courses:
-Linear algebra and differential equations
-Introduction to the language of mathematics
I am currently enrolled in the following:
-Introduction to probability models
All of these hobbies intrigue me as you get to concrete evidence of your progress. Weight lifting helps to keep my discipline and focus both mentally and physically. While composing and performing music allows me to express creativity.
