Hi! My name is Brian, and I am currently working as an actuary for a major insurance company. I recently graduated from Penn State University majoring in mathematics and actuarial sciences, and I was the valedictorian for both my high school and college classes. I was also heavily involved in the Boy Scouts, and am an Eagle Scout with 6 palms.

I have been tutoring people of all ages for seven years now, and I really enjoy helping out in any way I can. I specialize in math and can instruct any math class up to and including college level calculus 4, including multivariable calculus and differential equations. I scored a perfect 800 on the math section of the SAT's, won the 2009 Times Leader's Best and Brightest Award in Math, and was voted Most Likely to Succeed by my peers. I am very interested tutoring high school students in SAT math, including not only the regular SAT math section, but also the higher level subject test math level 1 and 2. Please send me a message if you are interested and we can talk about what you need, and how I can help you succeed.

Actuarial Science

I am currently a major in math with a concentration in actuarial science at Penn State, and so far I have taken several actuarial courses in preparation for the actuarial exams. I am also a teaching assistant for an upper level actuarial science class, so I am well versed in all the difficulties that student encounter in these classes.

C++

I am very familiar with computer programming in general and especially with C++. I specialize in C++ for engineering, math, and science applications, but I am familiar with it for other uses as well. I can tutor subjects in C++ ranging from simple operations to arrays to structures and loops to user-defined functions. As a tutor, I can help you write programs, help you with difficult programming questions, and/or check over programs that you have written yourself.

Differential Equations

I have completed a class in Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, and I have also done some independent research work into the works of specific types of differential equations such as periodic solution equations and time delayed Diff EQ's. In addition, I have tutored this subject several times and I feel very comfortable with the material.

Dreamweaver

I am very well versed in website design and layout, with Dreamweaver and Fireworks being my programs of choice. I can use the many functions of Dreamweaver to add flash, javascript, and HTML elements to your web page, as well as managing CSS style sheets and setting up FTP connections. In fact, I am currently in the process of designing and maintaining a website in Dreamweaver for a professional plumber so he can draw in more customers. I would be more than happy to design a website for anyone who needs it, or assist with a website design in a tutoring capacity.

PSAT

I have had a great deal of experience with tutoring for the SAT's, and as a result I have tutored many people for the PSAT's as well. I am especially interested in tutoring for the math section, on which I achieved a perfect score of 800 when I took the SAT's. For more than three years, I have been tutoring for this and other standardized tests, and to date every student I have had has greatly improved their test scores.

Web Design

I have designed several successful websites in the past for a variety of purposes and organizations. I am well versed in structure and design aspects of website creation, and I learn new concepts very quickly on the computer. I specialize in using Dreamweaver and Fireworks for the website layout, but I can work with other programs as well. I am actually in the process of designing a website for a professional plumber so that he can draw in more customers. In addition, I have a very good understanding of several web languages. I would be more than happy to either design a website for anyone who needs it, or assist with the construction of your website, whether it is already in progress or you are starting from scratch.
