Hi, My name is Rob. I graduated from SUNY Oswego summa cum laude with a BS in applied mathematics and a minor in statistics. I'm currently working towards passing my actuarial exams.
I was trained as a math tutor in 2010 and have since tutored privately, at Cayuga Community College, and at SUNY Oswego. I have also worked as a teaching assistant for an intro statistics course. My experiences tutoring include one-on-one for algebra, calculus, geometry, discrete mathematics and statistics, as well as drop-in math help, with topics ranging from arithmetic to calculus 2. I am more than happy to break out my real analysis, abstract algebra and other high level notes if someone wants help with upper division classes. I am also familiar with grade school level arithmetic and word problems.
My usual style is to first let you work through a problem as best as you can. This helps identify problem areas which we can work on together. After going through examples aimed specifically at increasing ability in those issues, we can try a similar problem. I find it to be very helpful having someone who can identify where the problem is, and can go through a simpler example which highlights the area needing work.
