I've taught a variety of math and statistics classes at Drake, DMACC and other colleges. There's no substitute for hard work, but sometimes additional instruction in a private setting can make all the difference! I provide helpful math tutoring for West Des Moines and vicinity and prefer to meet at the WDM library, although other locations are possible. Topics I have tutored include: High School A.P. Statistics or College Statistics (a.k.a. "Business Analytics" in MBA programs) Algebra & P... [more]
I have taught introductory statistics classes at Drake University and a local community college in the past. Topics covered calculation of important values, probability, central limit theorem, and hypothesis testing using Normal, T, F, and Chi-square distributions.
I have taught probability classes for actuarial science majors at Drake University in the past. Basic probability has also been a topic within introductory statistics classes I have taught.
I am an ACAS (Associate of the Casualty Actuarial Society) and have taught the first actuarial science course at Drake University in the past.
Regarding my qualifications to tutor in finite math, I have experience tutoring on functions, linear regression and applications. I have also tutored systems of equations and linear programming successfully. I taught probability, random variables, and set theory at Drake University twice. I have a sufficient understanding of linear algebra, having taken two courses in the subject in college, but it is a topic that doesn't come up every day. With regards to finance, I got an A in an MBA finance course and also have passed actuarial exams relating to interest theory. I will certainly be able to tutor the subject matter in finite math.
