I have been tutoring for about 10 years. Starting in high school, I tutored classmates. In college, I tutored both classmates and high school students. The tutoring continued into graduate school, with almost all my experience being within high school and undergraduate college students. I am an excellent communicator who is very excited to study Statistics. I have a M.S. and a Ph.D. in Statistics, which indicates I have a deep knowledge of the topic and know multiple methods for teaching the material to students.

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.

ACT English

English involves a wide range of subtopics. For example. Vocabulary, sentence structure, and grammar are the fundamental elements on English. Some of the rules can be a little confusing, but examples and explanations can go a long way to clearing up some of these matters.

ACT Math

Obtained a 34 on the Math portion of the ACT. Have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics, a Master's Degree in Statistics and a Ph.D. in Statistics. I am quite fluent in math...and Spanish as well. If you need math tutoring in Spanish, I would be more than happy.

ACT Science

Science is pretty logical in its nature. A lot of things just require explanation...or at least thinking about it at, perhaps, a deeper level. A lot of the answers to the questions can be found by reading the question in depth. This is not unlike how to answer many statistical questions.

Algebra 1

I performed exceptionally well in Algebra I class. I am fluent in mathematics and very capable of explaining concepts in multiple ways in order to facilitate understanding.

Algebra 2

I had an excellent Algebra 2 teacher who taught me how to teach the material in a way that is simple, efficient and complete.

American History

History classes revolve around the idea of memorization, but more importantly, it involves understanding the order of events. For example, obviously World War II came after World War I. One way in which I can help in classes like this is by providing mnemonic aids to help with the ordering and making it easier to remember certain events by remembering other events.

ASVAB

With both my parents in the Air Force, there was a distinct possibility I would end up in the military at some point. I am well-versed in the ASVAB. Regrettably, a knee surgery in high school prevented me from pursuing a military career.

Calculus

I performed quite well on my Calculus AP exam back in high school. I have a Bachelor's in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Statistics. I am quite fluent in math at many different levels and am also very good at communicating.

Elementary Math

I have extensive tutoring experience for all age levels, from elementary all the way up through undergraduate college. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's / Ph.D. in Statistics. I am well-versed in math and can explain concepts in multiple ways.

Elementary Science

Science is a fascinating subject. I spent much time in school studying science, taking a variety of courses in order to improve my understanding of the way things work in the world.

English

English can be a difficult language to master, with seemingly as many exceptions to rules as rules themselves. But, with practice and a few tricks, one can navigate the confusion and gain an overall understanding of the language.

GED

The GED is a test that requires patience and focus. I am a very patient individual when it comes to my tutoring and I know I can explain the material in such a way that it will make sense to a wide majority of people.

Geography

Geography is a lot like history in that memorization of many facts are required. There are different types of mnemonic aids that can be used to remember the capitals of countries or how a country looks on a map in order to be able to identify it. I can help put those together.

Geometry

I have actually tutored a student in Geometry for an entire semester using a textbook I recommended for him. I met with him weekly, gave him homework assignments, quizzes and exams. The student did very well when tested on the material for his school.

Grammar

The English grammar rules can be confusing...especially when they are not always followed. I had great teachers in school that taught me a variety of tricks in terms of how to handle these situations.

GRE

I took the GRE back in 2007 and did quite well on it. My emphasis on the GRE would be more towards the mathematical side, however. I understand the format of the GRE and how to prepare for it. There are some test-taking strategies, both in general and GRE-specific, than I can teach to students.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using Microsoft Excel for much of the past 10 years. I use it to outline my household budget. I also use it quite frequently at work to produce reports and help keep myself organized. A lot of statistics can also be done by way of Excel.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word for much of the past 10 years. I use it for journal entries that I have been writing for even longer than that. I also use it to put together reports, write resumes, and write to-do lists for my days at work. I am very fluent in Microsoft Word.

Prealgebra

I obtained a 102% grade in Pre-Algebra while attaining highest grade in the class. I am very fluent in material and exceptional communication skills will make me very capable to help any student.

Precalculus

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics, which required taking 4 different Calculus classes in college. Pre-calculus concepts were heavily reinforced there and I am confident I can relay that understanding to the students.

Probability

I have a Ph.D. in Statistics, much of which was heavily rooted in theory, and much of that in probability theory. I have learned probability from multiple perspectives, which gives me many weapons in attacking the problem of probability.

Reading

While speed reading is not my game, I am meticulous in terms of being able to dissect a sentence, a paragraph, or a reading in order to discern the meaning behind what is being said. I have read all types of books, stories and text and work in an environment where strict attention to detail is paramount. I feel I possess the necessary skills to pass this knowledge on to someone else.

SAT Math

My SAT Math score is what got me the Regents Scholarship to be able to attend the University of Oklahoma. I have also received a B.A. in Mathematics from OU. I am more than capable of tutoring SAT Mathematics to anyone, in Spanish or English.

SAT Reading

Reading in preparation for the SAT test involves patience, vocabulary, and an in-depth understanding of the English language. I read quite frequently and performed very well on the SAT test. As such, I feel I can be a valuable asset to anyone who is taking the SAT.

Spanish

I studied Spanish in high school and in college. I went on a foreign exchange trip to Mexico City, where I met my wife in 2001. I obtained a minor in Spanish from University of Oklahoma. I am very fluent in Spanish, having been to Mexico about 20 times over the course of the past decade.

Spelling

Spelling is tricky business. There are a lot of rules, and a lot of exceptions to those rules. I know a lot of the rules and exceptions, and based on that knowledge, I can figure out how to spell many words.

Statistics

I have a Master's Degree in Statistics and a Ph.D. in Statistics. I have tutored over 20 students in undergraduate statistics and am more than capable of handling students from all backgrounds and all personality types.

TOEFL

My wife is from Mexico City and had to take the TOEFL in order to gain admittance into Texas A&M University; therefore, I am pretty familiar with the test.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is something of an acceleration on geometry. Mostly, you'll focus on the ideas of sine, cosine, tangent, and how all those are related. A lot of this is memorization, but memorizing a few key elements can help to open up the world of trig a bit and remove some of the mystery.

Vocabulary

I have always been fascinated at how important vocabulary is to the English language. Knowing the exact word to use in the situation can also provide you with a leg up over the competition in the workplace.

World History

World History is a course that can be very challenging. There are a lot of facts and what happens in one part of the world may or may not impact other parts of it...making putting things in a sequence something of a challenge. But, there are ways to put things in order, organize them in ways that make it easier to remember key elements which will allow details and other key elements to fall out.

I have to say that I have been somewhat disappointed in my current lack of clients. Less than a month ago, I had 5 clients, some multiple times a week, and I thought I had reached the apex of the mountain. Now, I'm about to drop to one client and I'm practically begging people for work. All the schools in my area are, or are about to be, letting out, so I understand the lack of local opportunities... read more
