“**Awesome Tutor**”

Thank you for your time and interest! I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Berkeley and have been a full-time tutor since I graduated from college in 2009. The reason why I have been lucky enough to have been able to work full-time as tutor is that I retain my clients. I work with both high school and college level students.

My daughter really liked her session with Charles. He was able to break down the problems in a way that was easy for my daughter to understand. I would highly recommend his services.

My daughter and her friend both ended up with A's in Calculus thanks to Charles! He's a great guy and has a lot of patience.

Charles is great at helping my son who's a high school senior taking Calculus at a local junior college. The material has become very complex and challenging for my son. Charles does a great job of breaking it down and helping my son understand not only the processes involved but the reasoning as well.

Charles is an amazing math teacher. Note “teacher,” not just tutor. He is much better at explaining math concepts than my professor was. Charles demonstrated time and again that not only did he know more about the subject than my professor, but he was able to clearly explain how to solve the problems no matter how hard.

I have tried Calculus II three times, across two colleges, and Charles is the one who helped me pass it the fourth time in only 6 weeks! A great tutor, I would recommend him to anyone.

Charles was very helpful in helping our daughter in AP Calc. He helped her understand some of the problem solving skills she was lacking. We only could use him once as due to his schedule was so full.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have passed the Society of Actuaries exam P with a score of a 9, which means my performance on the exam was near perfect. Furthermore, I took math 440 at CSUSM, which more or less corresponds with the material on exam P and got a strong A. Lastly, my experience with the fundamentals--statistics and Calculus--makes be very well suited to tutor the material.

I majored in math as a student, and took the entire Calculus series, and I received A's in all my classes. So you can rely on the fact that I know the material well. You won't find me spending half the time in your book, or frequently getting stuck on problems. Furthermore, I've been a full-time tutor since I graduated in 2009 and I see Calculus students all the time; usually about a third of my clientele are studying Calculus. That means you can count on me to communicate concepts well.

I have a degree in math.

I have taken differential equations and received an A in the course.

I have tutored differential equations before (most recently last Spring).

Geometry is a source of frustration for many students, because it's not like other math that you see in high school. And everybody has to take it. The good news, at least for you, is that that means qualified tutors, like myself, see Geometry all the time, and know how to tutor it. I usually have two or more Geometry students at any given time, and I've been tutoring since I graduated in 2009. So you can count on me knowing this stuff inside and out, and that I can teach it.

I've taken the general GRE a total of three times so far, and I've developed study techniques that have proven to be effective. In my most recent attempt at the GRE I scored a 167 on the quantitative section, which put me in about the 95 percentile range. I also have a lot of experience as a math tutor more generally, so you can count on me being able to explain the concepts effectively. As of now, I only tutor the quantitative section.

I've taken bother upper and lower division linear algebra, and I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Furthermore, I've tutored linear algebra before.

My mathematics background has made well primed to learn Excel, and I frequently use the less sophisticated spreadsheet features. Recently, I decided to "beef-up" on my Excel my taking the Infinite Actuaries' "Technical Skills" course, where I studied Excel's more complicated functionality, e.g. VLookup, VBA, and pivot columns. I may be willing to discount my price, depending on my availability and your location, because I would like to keep my Excel skills fresh.

I'm particularly well suited to tutor precalculus, because precalculus tends to be a more advanced version of all the math you've learned before with an emphasis on the tools you'll need for Calculus plus some trigonometry. I tutor Calculus, trigonometry, and less advanced math classes all the time and I'm good at it. You won't find me getting stuck on problems very often or getting definitions mixed up. All our time will be spent teaching, and I have a lot of experience doing just that.

This is one of my favorite topics to tutor. I love working with more advanced math class, like Trigonometry. And I see it all the time. For example, in summer 2009 I had two Trigonometry students. You'll find that there are a lot of ways to solve Trig problems, some easier than others. Over the years I've found a lot of the easier techniques to solve the problems, and I've developed intuition about where students tend to struggle.
