About Walter

Learning has always been a passion of mine and is the biggest motivator for helping others. Starting in high school, I began tutoring students of all grade levels in the areas of math, science, English, business, and emergency medical technician studies (I was an EMT for five years).

My tutoring style varies according to a student's needs. If a student shows extraordinary progress, I will assign work that will continue to stimulate intellectual curiosity. If a student requires extra attention on topics, I will plan accordingly to make sure that the concepts are well understood.

After eight years of tutoring, I still enjoy seeing the excitement of a student understanding a concept that used to seem incomprehensible.

I studied math extensively for my Bachelor's degree (up to Calculus III). I currently utilize math and Excel professionally as a Senior Financial Analyst.

I have over eight years of Excel experience, and I utilize Excel every day as a Senior Financial Analyst. My skills include using formulas (logical, statistical, v lookup, reference, etc.), pivot tables/charts, formatting, table design, external data imports, macros, and much more.

Learning and helping with student success has always been a passion of mine. Whether a subject seems impossible to learn or only requires a refresh, I am eager to help unlock success in your studies. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions.
