"About me: I just got my PhD in pure math (algebraic and complex geometry) from UC Davis in December 2019, and I’ve been remote tutoring while I apply for postdocs. Teaching math, especially upper division courses, is one of my true passions, and I feel very lucky that I get to do it every day!

"About me: I just got my PhD in pure math (algebraic and complex geometry) from UC Davis in December 2019, and I’ve been remote tutoring while I apply for postdocs. Teaching math, especially upper division courses, is one of my true passions, and I feel very lucky that I get to do it every day! When I'm not teaching or doing my research I like to run in the California mountains, bake bread, and play guitar/piano.

Qualifications: I was a TA and full instructor at Davis for 6.5 years while I was a grad student, and I’ve been tutoring upper division math for 9 years. I really love teaching, and I received two teaching awards while at UCD! One of the highlights of my grad school experience was getting to teach my own classes during the summers. I taught Linear Algebra, Real Analysis, and Number Theory and it was so much fun!!

The Tutoring: With my current students I usually help with homework and studying for exams, talk through material from the lectures/books, and just discuss how these courses fit into math in general. However I'm happy to structure the tutoring however you'd like! For example I recently had a super fun time teaching a speedy ring theory course over winter break to one of my students who needed to know the material before taking Galois theory.

Logistics: I’ve been doing Zoom tutoring since March 2020 using my iPad, and it's been working very well! But if you prefer a different platform, I'm happy to branch out!

Undergraduate: Intro to Proofs, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Point-set Topology, Number Theory, Differential Geometry, Set Theory.

Graduate: Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Category Theory, Algebraic Topology, Differential Topology and Geometry, Functional Analysis, Complex Analysis.

Feel free to contact me at any time and we can set up a tutoring session! Best wishes and I hope you have a good and safe semester!" less...
