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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
