Dr. Jeremy Mandelkern

Hello!  My name is Dr. Jeremy Mandelkern.  I’m a passionate educator for both the Mathematical Sciences and Western Chess.  As a former College Mathematics Professor and Western Chess Coach in the USA, I am uniquely qualified to meet all of your Mathematics and Western Chess Tutoring needs.  Instruction is in English.  I also excel in Mathematics Test Preparation for SAT, ACT, IMAT, GMAT, the GRE General Test (Mathematics Sections), and the GRE Subject Test in Mathematics.  When I am not Tutoring/Teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, studying Mandarin, and hiking the mountains of Taiwan.



PROFESSOR • EASTERN FLORIDA STATE COLLEGE (EFSC) • 10+ YEARS FULL-TIME TEACHING EXPERIENCE.  From my beginnings as an undergraduate student and Mathematics Tutor at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) (1999-2003), I’ve climbed through the academic ranks of graduate TA(FIT) (2003-2004)  graduate RA (Suny Stonybrook) (2004-2005)  part-time Adjunct Professor (EFSC) (2005-2006) full-time Lecturer (EFSC) (2006-2010)  Assistant Professor(EFSC) (2010-2014)  Associate Professor (EFSC) (2014-2017).

In addition to my 10+ years of full-time teaching experience at EFSC, I also have top-level research experience from my PhD work at FIT under Dr. Charles Fulton, recipient of the 2013 Award for Excellence in Research at FIT and a world-renowned researcher in the area of the Spectral Theory for Sturm-Liouville Operators.
