Most of my experience has been tutoring in statistics for graduate students in a non statistics program. I learned what I know the hard way and understand frustration many people have. All my tutoring experiences have been for classes with an integrated Statistical Computation element. This has been SPSS or SAS. I also know R and can teach you R as well.

I have taught pre-calculus, calculus and pre-algebra and statistics as well as run help sessions. I can teach you delta epsilon proofs for calculus if needed or help with abstract algebra, but at that point you should be studying with fellow students. I passed a couple Actuary tests a number of years ago, that was in Calculus and Probability.

My goal is to give you an understanding of the material so you are comfortable with it and can then master the material. You will tell me what you know and let me see how you think about the material. If there is something that needs to be corrected or if you need additional understanding then I'll cover that. You will be the one driving the session, not me. I don't have any "easy" methods or shortcuts. Not because I am against that, but it is not my gift. I know others who can do that, so if that is what you want there are others who can provide it.

I can deal with people who are very frustrated, but still motivated.

I enjoy learning.

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.

Actuarial Science

I successfully completed exams 100 and 110 a number of years ago and these have been converted to credit for COURSE1 which gives me a conversion credit for exam P. Exam P is the very first exam and covers probability.

So, based on the fact I have passed exams 100 and 110, and those convert to Exam P, I should be able to help people with exam P. Exam P is only the first exam in the list of requirements given by the Society of Actuaries for certification.

SAS

I started programming in SAS in 1998 and have programmed in SAS since then. I have a Masters in Statistics from DePaul University where SAS was used. At one time I also had the Base SAS certificate (version 8). I have done research using SAS. (16 years experience with modules Base and Stats).
