If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

My approach is to help students to become the best that they can be in math by providing support for the required areas of study, but also to demonstrate the real world use of math.

I have a bachelor's degree in math from the University of Hertfordshire, located in the United Kingdom, as well as 17 years of experience applying problem solving techniques (the core of math) in a business environment. This not only provides a strong background for tutoring but also allows me to demonstrate the applicability of math outside of school and college.

Algebra 1

Algebra was one of the core subjects covered when studying for my Bachelors (with honors) degree, and I look forward to providing the best possible support to my students.

Business

I'm a 21 year professional from a background of financial services, banking and insurance.

This has given me familiarity with the business environment, development of strategic goals and objectives, developing plans to meet these goals, and assessing business performance.

During my career I have agreed with senior management on many improvements to the various functions within the companies I work.

Calculus

Calculus is one of the core areas of study for my Bachelors (with Honors) degree, and I look forward to helping my students by providing the best possible support.

Differential Equations

Differential equations formed part of my bachelors degree in mathematics.

Discrete Math

Descrete Math formed part of my bachelors degree in mathematics.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra formed part of my bachelors degree in mathematics.

Logic

Logic formed part of my bachelors degree in mathematics based on studies in math and statistics.

Microsoft Excel

I have used MS Excel in a work environment for at least 15 years, and before that its predecessor, for data analysis and reporting.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used MS Outlook significantly in a business environment over a five year period. I am familiar with multiple functions and am considered a power user.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows extensively duting my work life (17 years experience) and personal life.

Public Speaking

I have three years experience of speaking in public, including business seminars within the United States.

Soccer

I grew up in the UK and played soccer at school until I was 18. I am a dedicated fan of the English league and the development of soccer as a sport in the US including both men's and women's teams. My training approach would be based on a mixture of fitness and technique.

Track & Field

I have been a long distance runner for over a period of 10 years and participated in a number of track and field disciplines at school, including 100m, 200m, 400m, 1500m, shot put, javelin, long jump, and triple jump. I completed several half marathons, 10 mile and 10 km runs.
