"Hi! My name is Joshua S. and I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with an M.S. in Mathematics. I am passionate about math at all levels, from basic algebra to upper-division courses in pure math. My goal is to communicate the essential ideas and concepts in math, to lay them bare and to make clear the intuition behind them. I firmly believe that all students are capable of attaining success in their goals in mathematics, and I am eager to assist them in their journey.

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Cal Poly Pomona, I taught remedial math classes in Basic and Intermediate Algebra to incoming freshmen who had struggled in math and needed additional assistance and support to attain the skill and proficiency needed to excel in their studies. In this manner I saw firsthand the many difficulties they faced and the specific mental roadblocks that stumbled them and hampered their mathematical progress, which allowed me to better understand how to give them the support and guidance they needed to excel in their mathematical journey.

During my education at Cal Poly I also had the opportunity to serve as a TA in an upper-division abstract algebra course. This experience demonstrated to me further the importance of good pedagogy in all levels of mathematics, whether basic or advanced. The students were all highly motivated and diligent, but often they still struggled as they worked to expand their mathematical reasoning abilities and to adjust to a heightened level of mathematical abstraction. It was imperative to keep the focus on intuition and understanding, and not to set unreasonable expectations simply because of the advanced nature of the course. Thus I gained valuable training in teaching advanced mathematical concepts in a clear, accessible and intuitive manner.

I am knowledgeable in the following subjects: Algebra I & II, Geometry/Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, II and III, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, Topology, Differential Geometry, Complex Analysis
