If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in May 2010 with a B.S. degree in Mathematical Economics and a B.S. in Statistics. In the fall of 2010, I began pursuing a Master's degree in Financial Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. My tutoring background started in high school when I provided tutoring services for trigonometry and analytical geometry students. While attending the University of St. Thomas, I was a statistics tutor for my junior and senior years. I can provide assistance for students who would like help with ACT/SAT math prep, all high school level math courses and the Quantitative section on the GRE.

Tutor tip: Be proactive, if you think you are going to have a difficult time with a course, feel free to email me and set up a free appointment to see how tutoring can help you achieve the success you are looking for. It is easier to start the class on the right foot, instead of playing catch up. Good luck with all your studies!

FYI - I typically respond to emails in the morning before 9:00 AM.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biostatistics

I majored in statistics in college and have tutored other students with their bio-statistics course. Biostatistics is looking at biological questions through a statistical lens. If you need help with your course, feel free to reach out to me!

Differential Equations

My Master's program in Financial Mathematics, is based in stochastic calculus and differential equations. I have taken Diff EQs at the undergraduate level and have reviewed them periodically with my course material.

MATLAB

I have taken a handful of Matlab courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I am comfortable tutoring with the fundamentals of functional programming. In addition, I can explain scripts and how to read the code for Matlab.

Visual Basic

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies, I have taken many computer programming classes. I have taken courses in C++, C#, Matlab, Visual Basic and SAS. I feel more than confident in my ability to help with entry level programming classes.

Assertive, Works specifically for your learning Style. — I had a great experience with Mark. I was utterly helpless without a tutor, and it's no easy task teaching me any math subject. He was very flexible, patient, and assertive. He didn't let me make excuses to quit, which I tend to do when it comes to math. Mark's easy to contact, and always on time, and ready to dive into your work, no matter how painful it is. He doesn't do the work for you, but wo ...
