Typically students studying Probability do so as part of general Introductory Statistics course. Unlike most sections of Statistics, Probability is very much like other Mathematics subjects students are familiar with (namely Elementary Algebra, Finite Math, etc.). It relies heavily on Algebraic rules and is largely computational. Success here is largely dependent on working problems applying the rules of counting. There are some novel mathematical concepts here that one must master to succeed in this mostly accessible subject area. [more]

What are the chances of your passing your stats and probability course? If you're in doubt, my 36 years of helping hundreds of students be successful will definitely improve your odds. And you'll probably find yourself enjoying this fascinating and very practical application of numbers. "Why study mathematics?" and "How will I ever understand this stuff?" are two of the most real and common questions I am asked when students, along with their parents, ask me to help. I use methods and techniques that I've perfected over the years to show the applicability and the beauty behind "the beast" know [more]

Hello, I'm Benjamin and I love teaching math! I studied Psychology as an undergraduate at Sacramento State; I even had the honor of teaching a lab section for a Research Methods course, but it just couldn't keep me away from math for too long. I am currently enrolled as a Master's student in Mathematics at CSUS, but before that I went to Sierra College to brush up on the basics that I learned in High School and that is where I found wonderful teachers who inspired me to one day become a teach...

Probability tells us how many times an outcome is going to occur if an experiment is done many times. It is not possible to predict if a man is going to die this year. But using probability theory an insurance company, which has millions of customers, can predict very precisely how many of its customers are going to die in a year. Although it is not possible to predict which individuals are going to die but the overall number can be known with a lot of accuracy. Similarly it is possible to know which candidate is going to win an election before the election is held. Such is the power of pro [more]

I took AP Statistics as a high school senior and received an "A-" for both fall and spring semesters. Later, I took STAT-50 and STAT-115A at California State University, Sacramento. I use cards, coins, and dices to discuss probability based on chances. Students learn about how probability is used in math, biology, finance, and risk. I have my AA in Mathematics from Merced College. In 2015, I graduated from California State University, Sacramento with my BA in Economics and a double minor in Mathematics and Statistics. I am the William Randolph Hearst Scholar where I was recognized for my [more]

I began tutoring in math and science as a sophomore in college and instantly fell in love with the experience. During this time, I've tutored over 60 students in the Stockton and Sacramento area, ranging from as young as 4 years old to as old as 55 years of age. I can truly say that I enjoy working with kids as well as adults. My tutoring approach can vary depending on the student?s needs, personality and learning style. However, my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to thi... [more]
