My strength as a teacher is explaining tough concepts in everyday language. I like to use visuals, and find they help quite a bit. I am much more 'applied' than 'theoretical'.

I have taught at the Community College level in Florida, and taught undergraduate courses at a 4 year University while in Graduate School. I have also taught several professional review courses in the actuarial and insurance fields.

Please note- I only tutor on weekends, and only in Wellesley.
