I am presently an actuary at one of the leading insurance companies in the US with a focus on system development in the Life and Annuity area. Historically, I have had the occasion to tutor individuals to successful results in their respective examinations. I am not a fan of the overnight approach as there are no shortcuts to true success.

Mathematics is essentially thinking and a proper foundation remains key. One of my objectives with a student is the identification and correction of fundamental misunderstanding.

Finally, my expectation is that at the end of the day students will be able to adequately express (in writing or orally) mathematical concepts.
