Glen R. passed a background check on 4/3/14. The check was ordered by another user through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Glen, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
I have taught/tutored for 3 years. I was both a student and graduate assistant at CSULB where I attained a B.S. in Mathematics and a M.S. in Statistics.
I have experience tutoring in all mathematics subjects up to and including graduate-level material. I have a massive amount of experience in tutoring almost all of the subjects that I'm qualified to teach or tutor. Thus, it is very difficult to find another tutor who has as much experience in tutoring algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, statistics, precalculus, calculus, linear algebra, physics, and chemistry, along with SAT, ACT, ASVAB, GRE, and GMAT test preparation.
Based on my educational level and experience attained from working in industry, you will find that my hourly rate is very affordable compared with many other tutors. Accordingly, I am pleased to mention that last year I was ranked and awarded by WyzAnt to be in the top 50 nationally with respect to the number of hours worked. I am also one of the highest-rated tutors (I am currently number 1 in all of So. California for the subjects that I tutor!).
My most salient skill, however, is presenting the theory and logic used for many proofs and equations in a simpler and easier to visualize alternative format that students can more easily understand.
The AFOQT test is in many respects very similar to the ASVAB, such as it has math problems involving rates, proportions, and estimations (but at a more difficult level), but it also includes a section of problems for testing the applicant's spatial abilities by testing whether the applicant can determine the proper orientation of an aircraft based solely on instrument information. I have tutored other students on this test and know all of the exercises and tricks that will help you attain a high score on the AFOQT.
I have taken both lower division and upper division classes in differential equations. Differential equations are encountered in many different disciplines, in courses such as business calculus, physics, mechanical engineering, and even in chemistry. Typically a little bit of differential equations is taught in the third calculus class (usually the calculus course which covers multivariable calculus).
The topics covered in the differential equations classes that I completed were as follows:
1) Separation of variables
2) Homogeneous equations
3) Exact equations
4) Linear equations
5) The equations of Bernoulli, Ricatti
7) Picard's method
8) Undetermined coefficients
9) Variation of parameters
10) Second-order differential equations
11) Cauchy-Euler equation
12) Power series solutions
13) Besel's equation
14) Legendre's equation
15) Laplace transform
16) Systems of linear differential equations
17) Numerical methods
18) Fourier series
I have 5+ years of SAS experience. I am familiar with importing and exporting many different forms of data, and also merging data sets. Some of the PROC functions that I've used include the following:

Glen gets results FAST - WOW!!! — Serious students, parents, and professors understand the "hit or miss" nature of tutors. I was referred to Glen through a friend who is taking a difficult graduate-level statistics course. She said without a doubt, he is better than any other statistics or math tutor in the area (and this lady is very bright so I trust her advice). Personally, I'm taking Calculus 2 over this summer and the pace ...
Standard Hourly Fee: $46.00
Cancellation: 8 hours notice required
In the event that I'm not notified within 8 hrs. of a cancelled lesson, 1.5 hr. of time will be charged to their account to cover preparation time, displacing other students from that booking, etc.
Glen will travel within 15 miles of Long Beach, CA 90815.
