My ultimate goal as a tutor is to help my students feel comfortable enough with their studies so that they no longer need me to help them anymore. I am an actuary with 17+ years work experience with the US government. I have taught mathematics and statistics in college, but I enjoy tutoring a lot more than teaching; I don't like having to give grades to students and would much rather help them earn good grades. I have been tutoring mathematics since 1987. I am also an amateur magician. I tu... [more]

Algebra 1

Algebra 2

I have a master's degree in applied math from Johns Hopkins University.

Calculus

I have a master's degree in pure math from Syracuse U and a master's degree in applied math from Johns Hopkins U. I am also an actuary who passed all of the exams required for Associate of the Society of Actuaries. Knowledge of calculus is essential for this.

Geometry

I have a master's degree in applied math from Johns Hopkins U.

Physics

I have a master's degree in applied mathematics from Johns Hopkins University and have published scientific articles in physics journals.

Prealgebra

Precalculus

I have a master's degree in pure mathematics from Syracuse University and a master's degree in applied mathematics from Johns Hopkins University. I use Precalculus concepts every day in my job as an actuary working for the US government.

Trigonometry

Statistics

I have a master's degree in pure math from Syracuse University and a master's degree in applied math from Johns Hopkins University. I have passed all of my exams required to be an Associate of the Society of Actuaries. I have also taught statistics in college four times and taught Actuarial Mathematics in college once.

SAT Math

Probability

I took a graduate level course in probability at Johns Hopkins University. I passed all of my actuarial exams necessary to become an associate of the Society of Actuaries.

Discrete Math

I have taken Combinatorics and Graph theory as an undergraduate at UMBC and the same course as a graduate student at Johns Hopkins. I have also taken the course Analysis of Algorithms at UMBC as an undergraduate and at Johns Hopkins as a graduate student. I have also published discrete math articles in peer reviewed journals.

Actuarial Science

I have worked as an actuary for the US government for 16 years. I passed all of my exams required for becoming an Associate in the Society of Actuaries. I have recently taught Actuarial Mathematics at a local college.

Linear Algebra

I have taken undergraduate and graduate level courses in linear algebra and matrix analysis at UMBC, Syracuse University, and Johns Hopkins University. I was also a teaching assistant for linear algebra at JHU. Part of this job involved tutoring students in linear algebra.

Logic

My first course in logic was during my freshman year at UMBC. It was taught through the philosophy department. This course first covered Aristotle's syllogisms. Afterwards, the course covered propositional logic (Boolean logic). And after this, it covered predicate logic (statements with for all, there exists). Predicate logic is the bread and butter of mathematical logic, which I have used throughout my days as an undergraduate and graduate student in mathematics.

Finite Math

Going by the Wikipedia definition of finite mathematics, I am qualified to tutor this subject because of my background in statistics, probability, matrices, linear programming. (I have taken all of these courses as a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University.)
