...Let me know if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a lesson. I tutor out of my office at the CU Boulder campus (the math department building is at the corner of Folsom and Colorado).
Looking forward to helping you move forward!I have a masters degree in Pure Mathematics from CUNY Hunter College. I am currently pursuing a PhD in math at UC Boulder. (read more)

I have completed college level Calculus 1 and Calculus 2, both with grades of A. I averaged A's on my quizzes and tests. (read more)
...I taught precalculus to juniors/seniors in high school in Indiana. I especially enjoyed teaching precalculus because it is a precursor to all higher level math, and it is imperative that all high-level students understand these foundations.

...I also use LSF (Load Sharing Facility) to handle job scheduling and do so under a Linux/Unix environment. Management of mounting of disk, accounts passwords,and other compiler specific needs are part of my daily routine. I write test harness software and frequently use a myriad of Python to accomplish parsing/logging and regular expression matching to do data-mining of big data sets. (read more)
