Math has always seemed interesting to me. It just makes sense. It's logical. It's that type of reasoning that helped me to move through Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, and Calculus in high school. In college, my studies continued with Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variables, and Physics, all leading towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering.

After graduation, via a strange and winding path, I began to take an interest in becoming a health care actuary. While enjoying the classroom again, I also passed 6 actuarial exams covering Calculus (again), Probability, Applied Statistics, Numerical Methods, and Compound Interest. It's this spectrum of mathematics, from high school through post baccalaureate, which I feel most comfortable tutoring.

I also became even more proficient with Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. So, if there are questions or invaluable tips that I can help someone with, I can also provide direction with these Microsoft Office programs.

I recently tested my own math skills by taking and passing the GACE Content Assessment for Mathematics (022 -023) for teacher certification in the State of Georgia.

I've also added a few more skills that I'd like to share with others: QuickBooks Pro and Accounting Principles.

Great Tutor — Mrs. B was a great tutor. She was easy to get in contact with because she texts back very efficiently. She was easy to schedule appointments with. Her appointments were very helpful. She patiently helped me understand concepts I never understood. Very sweet, patient, and intelligent woman. I want her to be my tutor for my precalculus class. ...
