I graduated from Williams College as a mathematics and economics double major. I received both thesis and Latin honors. As a mathematics and economics double major, I feel I have acquired strong analytic skills with these subjects and the ability to teach them well. While an undergraduate, I simultaneously maintained jobs as an on-call tutor for the mathematics and economics departments and a teaching assistant for the mathematics, economics or philosophy departments, all while playing on a National Championship winning varsity basketball team. I have also developed the skill of being able to convey economic concepts to interested individuals clearly and effectively. Furthermore, the many statistics classes I have taken have given me a familiarity with using a variety of statistic software packages. I was awarded the class of 1957 scholarship for my work at Williams and was a national finalist for the Rhodes scholarship out of District II in 2005.
Currently, I am working on a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Maryland. My goal is to teach at an elite Liberal Arts College or University. I teach economics classes at the University of Maryland. The areas I am most comfortable tutoring are micro economics, mathematics, and statistics.
I was also tutor for the high end math SAT prep tutor for a local SAT prep company and specialized in taking students scoring high 600's and low 700's on the math to high 700's and 800. I am confident I can help boost GRE scores in the same way.
Also it is not a category, but I know how to solve and teach other people how to solve the Rubik's Cube in case anyone is interested. I also charge a much lower rate for that cause it is just fun to teach and silly enough where no one will pay my SAT Math rate to be shown how to solve the Rubik's Cube.
