Math & statistics instructor at your service!

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.

Actuarial Science

I am an ACAS (Associate of the Casualty Actuarial Society) and have taught the first actuarial science course at Drake University in the past.

Finite Math

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.
