“**Great Tutor!**”

This graduate of Dartmouth College and the University of Wisconsin, Madison is a patient and excellent tutor who is well versed in a wide variety of subjects that have as a common theme that they are mathematically oriented. I am a retired financial executive going back to work to support two young daughters about to start college back East. It's

Terry is a very patient tutor and person. He is available by phone and email. He is definitely willing to put in the effort to help you if you're willing to put in the effort as well. I am very satisfied with his help and I would suggest him to anyone who is struggling with statistics, whether it's psychology stats or econometrics.

Terry spent two hours reviewing Statistics with me. He is very knowledgeable in the subject & very patient in conveying that knowledge to his students. Cannot recommend him highly enough! Thanks Terry!

Terry not only helped me prepare for my corporate finance exam less than 24 hours away, but he helped me to feel confident in my performance and abilities. I scored well above the class average on the exam. I will definitely be working with Terry again.

Terry is great! He has been incredibly helpful in getting my son excited about math and coding. And he is also teaching me about statistics!

Terry is kind, straightforward and knowledgeable. He makes something hard be fun. I left our session feeling more prepared and knowing that my tutor has my back. I look forward to continuing sessions with Terry! I highly recommend him.

Terry was punctual to the appointment and when we were having computer difficulties because of my computer, he took the work home and helped me from his home. He got back to me right away and was so helpful. He really went above and beyond and helped me more than I thought anyone could. I would recommend him to anyone.

Terry saved us from certain AP stats testing sadness. The drive was long for him, but he said he knew an S.O.S. cry for help when he heard one...he was right! Without a doubt, Terry knows his stuff. The only feedback that I got from my son (beyond that Terry made easy work of the tutoring part) was that a little more info on how to do some of the calculations using a TI-83 (student standard tool) would have been helpful as students are allowed to use these in testing situations. I would not hesitate to call Terry back to help my son with his working understanding of maths and for test prep. I recommend Terry, he actually cares about math and helping our students "get it".

Terry helped me with my Microeconomics final exam material. I will definitely use his help again. Because of his expertise and patience, I was able to understand the complicated material my professor was unable to explain, and through a simpler perspective! Terry was over wonderful!!

Dr. F is amazing explains everything into simple form and asks what did I learn, which I truly appreciate. I cant thank him enough.

Terry helped me to understand the concepts and was patient. He makes himself available to help when needed. Thank you Terry.

Terry is patient and a great problem solver. If you have a difficult mathematics course he will help you get through the course. I thought I was going to flunk a course, but he helped me pass, which saved me time and money.

As I said in my first review of my son's lesson with Terry, my son thought Terry was great and wanted another session. My son just had round two -- this time for an upcoming test as opposed to a quiz -- and now feels even better about him! Two thumbs up.

Terry is the best tutor ever! He has an ability to know where the student is at and if they're getting it! He is great at making things clear and easy to understand! He knows how to break down complex equations into easy to follow steps that work!

Terry is very reliable, personable, prepared, encouraging, patient, and makes intimidating math concepts understandable. He makes sure he is available before all quizzes and tests. Sessions with Terry have have greatly improved my son's math skills and confidence. My son looks forward to his sessions.

Terry was very patient teaching my daughter new concepts in Math. She just started 5th grade and was struggling.

Terry helped me with a online business statistic course through the Harvard Business School. I passed! Three months later, I am back working with him to prepare for a Real Estate Financial Underwriter interview.

Terry worked hard for my specific areas of study and explained finance/business stat clearly. He prepared very well before my study session and followed up after the session.

Terry is definitely a very knowledgeable tutor. I feel that I learned the concepts really well.

I totally recommend Terry to other students. Five Star.

I took an online Business Statistics and Quantitative Analysis course online, which seemed impossible. The professor that ran this course did not explain anything, went through information too quickly, and did not go over any examples. Students were basically left to figure everything out for themselves. I felt completely overwhelmed and debated withdrawing, as I was certain that I would fail this course. Luckily, I found Terry through WyzAnt. We met in person twice for tutor sessions. Two sessions is all it took for me to understand the fundamentals and complete the remainder of the course on my own. I received my final grade today, and I passed with an A!! Terry is very patient, kind, knowledgeable, and made me feel confident in this course. If you are struggling, email Terry and I'm certain he can help!!

Terry is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor and tutor. He is great to work with and I would highly recommend him.

I highly recommend Terry. Terry tutored my daughter and helped her with high school math. He is an excellent tutor. He prepares for each session and is very knowledgeable about the subject, very patient and adjusts his teaching to the needs of the student.

My first meeting with Dr. Terry was a very pleasant experience. He was very knowledgeable and had the patience to go over my project, brainstorm ideas, and explain in detail the exciting and complex subject of creating a reliable database. He was willing to listen, understand my concerns, and help me set a starting point for my project. He is very intuitive, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend Dr. Terry to anyone.

I am a PhD candidate at the American College in the program of Financial and Retirement Planning. I hired Terry to help me with what is considered the toughest course in the program: ECONOMETRICS. The class moved quickly through complex areas and this necessitated my meeting with Terry on an at least a weekly basis.

Terry was very accommodating on meeting me near my home and at hours conducive to my schedule. In addition, Terry always came well-prepared and consistently advanced our prior week's game plan. I was also able to communicate with Terry by email and by phone, which greatly helped matters.

Terry helped me immensely in better understanding the statistical and mathematical concepts in econometrics. This enabled me to improve my quiz grades as well as homework assignments. My final project was greatly enhanced by Terry's insights and SAS printouts. When it comes to statistics and econometrics, I highly recommend Terry in terms of both expertise and engaging personality.

This tutor is very patient. He takes his time to listen to the students. He is a subject matter expert due to his experience. He will make the session fun for you, believe me. I strongly recommend this tutor.

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.

Accounting and finance are two topics with which I am very familiar. I was a career banker for 30 years and about half that time was spent lending to large and small businesses with a bit of personal lending thrown in the mix. My MBA and PhD provided plenty of academic background in these subjects and I have taken a number of courses and seminars in these subjects more recently, As these subjects have become increasingly mathematical in their approach, I have found my own strong math background incredibly valuable in understanding the more quantitative approaches to these subjects.

Algebra can be a bewildering subject for many students. But I use a number of analogies to make the subject seem much simpler such as the concept of a balance scale; what you do to one side of the scale (equation) you must do to the other side of the scale (equation) in order to keep thing in balance. I also constantly check for understanding and require the student do lots of problems under a patient and understanding set of eyes. Simply lecturing students is not the way they learn. You can supply the steps to solving a problem; the student needs to practice performing the steps.

Algebra 2 is a subject which I have successfully tutored on many occasions. I have also taught the subject in an LA Charter school. There a number of potentially difficult topics in this course which would include analytic geometry, trigonometry. and logarithmic./ exponential functions. These topics require patience and expertise in order for the student to fully grasp them. My specialty is teaching these topics in away that makes them easy to understand and retain

I received my MBA from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. From there I went on to earn my PhD in business quantitative analysis. My specialties are business statistics, economics, and finance, although I am well-versed in all of the subject-matter in the typical MBA program including accounting and marketing. I was a successful senior executive in the financial industry for over 20 years.

I have studied C on my own and have the language installed outer. I am also conversant in many other computer languages including C+. In addition I took an on-line course in C from Harvard University's internet education site, EDX. Earlier in my career I was an active programmer as well as systems analyst.

My specialty is test preparation. What we learn how to do is identify the types of calculus problems likely to be on your exam.

, and the keys to distinguishing one type of problem from another whether it be implicit differentiation or a related rates problem for example. Then we make sure we understand the steps in solving each of the various problem types.

I have taken the CBEST exam as part of my studies for my teaching credential. I passed the exam with flying colors. With my heavy background this test and preparing students to pass it will be relatively easy for me.

I have years of computer programming experience and have written 100's of programs in my career. I am familiar with scientific and business programming. among the many languages in which I've programmed are Fortran, Basic, Cobol, PL1 and some Assembler. More recently I have learn Python, C and C+.

Differential equations is a subject I have studied on a number of occasions during my undergraduate and graduate math studies. More specifically, I took a class in this subject during my pursuit of my Master's in Math at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. It is a subject with which I am very familiar and comfortable. In addition, I have a gift for making difficult topics relatively easy, having taught at the high school and college level.

Discrete mathematics is particularly fun and intuitive subject for students that has useful application in the real world. I've personally used linear programming to solve a particular banking problem. In fact my PhD in Business Quantitative Analysis from the University of Wisconsin employs many of these topics. In addition I have obtained BA degree with a major in math from Dartmouth College as well as an MA in math and MBA also from the University of Wisconsin. Finally I am an excellent tutor with instructional experience at the high school and college levels

Econometrics was a course I took at the University of Wisconsin as part of my PhD program. Indeed a major portion of the PhD requirements was to pass the economics PhD qualifying exam at a school with a very prestigious economics department. I've had six graduate level courses in economics including this particular subject. I'd plan to purchase any client's text in order to provide more directed assistance.

A major requirement of my PhD in Business Quantitative Analysis was to pass the PhD Qualifying Exam in Economics. This entailed passing 6 graduate levels in economics and a six hour qualifying exam. As a result I have had a great deal of success in tutoring microeconomics, macroeconomics and even econometrics, a relatively difficult subject. Moreover economics is a subject that has gotten much more quantitative in its approach, increasingly using concepts such as calculus and statistics in its approach. The fact that I also have a Masters in math has enabled me to stay abreast of the more mathematical approaches to both micro and macro economics. I am well qualified to teach economics.

The study of finance has gotten increasingly quantitative over the years. My PhD in Business and Quantitative Analysis and Masters in Math from the University of Wisconsin in Madison have positioned me well to understand and teach the newer finance material which is vey mathematical in its approach. In addition I myself fairly recently took a very quantitative finance class from a prominent UCLA finance professor and also took a two week seminar in quantitative methods in finance at MIT, My continuing tutoring of the subject have familiarized me with the very newest of topics in finance. Finally I am a 25 year plus veteran of the finance industry where I routinely used many of the techniques routinely taught in finance courses.

This is a topic I really enjoyed during my studies in math. Specifically I took a course by this name during my pursuit of a BA degree with a major in math at Dartmouth College. I went on to obtain my MA in math, MBA and PhD degrees at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am an excellent instructor with both high school and college level teaching experience. I excel at making math understandable.

Geometry is an interesting mathematical subject with many moving parts It is quite different from algebra in its heavy emphasis on the ability to construct logical proofs. I have tutored this subject successfully on numerous occasions and know how to help students have greater success in constructing their own geometric proofs. It is often a matter of working backward from what you are trying to prove to what you are given or know. In some ways it is like solving a puzzle. I find the whole process stimulating and interesting, and I try to get my students to see the process as challenging and fun.

Linear algebra is among my favorite subjects in mathematics. Having taken over 30 courses in math and statistics during my studies at Dartmouth (BA, major in math, minor in physics) and the University of Wisconsin, Madison (MA in math, MBA and PhD in Business Quantitative Analysis) I am particularly qualified to teach this topic. Specifically I had one undergraduate and two graduate level courses covering this topic. I am an excellent teacher having taught at both the high school and college levels

Logic is a subject I've studied on a number of occasions, especially during my undergraduate math studies at Dartmouth College where I majored in math. One course was completely devoted to that subject. I also have three graduate degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison: an MA in math, an MBA and a PhD in Business Quantitative Analysis. In addition I've had significant teaching experience having taught at the high school and college level.

During my early academic and professional career I had extensive experience with data processing and a wide variety of computer programming languages and data base management systems.

I have used Excel extensively in my business consulting business and designed numerous Excel application spreadsheets. I am currently consulting with a company designing a very sophisticated application for inventory management and production scheduling. This application involves writing macro-functions in Visual Basic to perform the analysis.

In addition I have used the statistics functions present in Excel to assist students in their statistics classes using the statistical functions resident within Excel.

Physics was my major at Dartmouth College through my junior year. During my studies I took a number of advanced classes including mechanics, quantum physics, thermodynamics and relativity theory.

I have actual teaching experience working with 7th graders on pre-algebra. This experience has enabled me to understand how to get the necessary concepts across. I can also draw on algebra and more advanced concepts to give students an exciting preview of what they can expect to learn in the future.

Precalculus and calculus are subjects I've successfully taught and tutored on many occasions. The subject of limits can be very confusing to students when it is first encountered. I heavily rely on intuition and examples with which the student would already be familiar. The more intuitive type of approach makes it easier to grasp concepts which would at first seem difficult to grasp. Trigonometry and analytic geometry are two other topics I know how to simplify so that the student can more easily understand them.

Probability is a subject in which I am extremely well-versed. I have frequently tutored the subject on a standalone basis and as part of statistics classes. I am capable of presenting the subject in a manner that is easily understood and retained. Lots of examples are presented in order to solidify the concepts. Having such a long familiarity with the subject means that presenting the material is second-nature to me.

Public speaking is one of my great strengths. I've spoken professionally for over 30 years as a Senior Vice President in banking at numerous conferences and trade shows. Early on I had some difficulty with public speaking but learned that the key to success was hard work and preparation. I'm sure I could help with techniques that have worked for me. I've also taught public speaking professionally.

I am very current with SAS and it is a very difficult software topic. Currently I am working with an econometrics client who is using SAS. Only he and one other student in his class are able to work with the SAS software. The rest of the class are limping along with Excel which is a very cumbersome tool for the kinds of statistics problems being addressed.

Statistics is my favorite subject and the one I'm most qualified to teach. Having taken more than six statistics classes at the college or graduate school levels, I'm well-versed in just about any topic likely to be encountered. When I encounter the occasional topic I've not seen before, I have no problem researching it and learning about it. In addition to tutoring statistics about 10 times, Iv'e taught the subject in the workplace, in college, and graduate school. I know this subject well and know how to make it understandable.

Trigonometry is a very different subject in math. It involves both algebra and geometry. Concepts and theorems can be very simple or relatively complex. Having studied, tutored and taught the subject over the years, I have learned how to present the material in the easies ways possible. My students benefit from my ability to simplify more difficult topics.
