Hello and thanks for visiting my profile! I have over ten years of tutoring experience. I also have a current and valid educator certification and a bookkeeper certification from the National Bookkeepers Association. My tutoring experience includes Pre-algebra, Algebra 1-4, College Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Pre-calculus, Calculus, and many more subjects. I studied math extensively for my Bachelor's degree (up to Calculus III), and I currently utilize math and Microsoft Excel professionally as a Financial Analyst. My Excel skills include using formulas (logical, statistical, v lookup, reference, etc.), pivot tables/charts, formatting, table design, external data imports, macros, and much more. After years of tutoring, I still enjoy seeing the excitement of a student understanding a concept that used to seem incomprehensible.

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.

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 contact me if you have questions or to schedule a lesson!

Great tutor!!!

My son was very hesitant about using a tutor for College Algebra but after his session with Walter he’s looking forward to the next session. Walter brought out the confidence my son needed to know that he could do this. I will continue to use Walter for future sessions.

Pam, 5 lessons with Walter
Tutor responded:

Thank you!

Patient and knowledgeable

He allowed my daughter to complete the problem before intervening to make sure she understood the concepts and gave her additional practice problems to practice on during and after the lesson. He is flexible in his scheduling, and I would recommend him.

Tutor responded:

Thank you!

Knowledgeable and patient!

I appreciated Walter’s knowledge of the subject (biology), his patience and that he came prepared with resources my daughter can use. We plan to contact him for future tutoring sessions for my daughter!

Tutor responded:

Thank you!

Very happy with the service provided

Walter was very prompt with responding within a timely manor. He met with my son, and my son said that he really liked the work that Walter provided. I immediately rescheduled him to meet up with my son again for another tutor lesson. With Walters help, I am confident that my son will pass his last year of high school math. Thank you Water!

Great help with Excel

First lesson with Walter tonight. Patient, informative and a wonderful positive approach to teaching something I am needing A LOT of help with. I already have my 2nd lesson set up. I am an older learner but old dogs CAN learn new tricks!

Walter saved the day

Thanks to Walter, our son was able to understand the math concepts necessary to complete his first semester assignments by the extended deadline graciously given by the school. Couldn't have done it without him. Thanks, Walter!

Thank you!

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Walter helped me understand how to pull data into a pivot table and then display pertinent information in either a pie or table chart. He is very diverse in all types of pulling data to get the outlook you are looking for. I’m new at this and he was so patient and understanding of my needs. He knew right off the bat I was more of a hands on person and had to actually do the steps in my computer to learn it along with writing notes. I have a project my manager wants we to work on as a learning to pulling data and Walter helped me put together a couple charts to see how they would like to see the data. I completed a re-cap of my session and attached the two charts for them to see my progress. I look forward to having my second session with Walter to learn more. You will learn a lot from Walter as he is very clear, goes at the right pace, listens to your needs and he is always asking if you are getting it or if he needs to go back and explain it again so you get it. He doesn’t want to walk away until you get and understand what you came to learn. I really like that about Walter. I recommend him to everyone who wants to learn how to put together chart, pivot tables, pulling data and getting a great result to present.
