About Ross

I have years of experience with tutoring students of all ages in varying subjects of Math. I take pride in getting my students to understand the material from the basics and work their way up through positive reinforcement. My students experience a drastic increase in grades.

I am currently studying to be an Actuary (quantifying unknown risks in the world), and have passed the 1st 2 exams for the Society of Actuaries. I have grown up being far ahead of my classmates when it comes to understanding math and have been asked on numerous occasions by my teachers to explain the information to my classmates in a different manner than was being taught so they too would understand.

When I start out with a new student, I try to gauge where they are and work their way up. In my opinion, it is better to build the student up when they understand each step when solving a problem rather than jumping from start to finish. In order to learn the material, you must know why you took each step in order to reach the correct conclusion.

My hours are very flexible and am able to structure my day around my tutoring sessions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Actuarial Science

I have passed the 1st 2 SOA Exams. Exam P was taken in July 2015 and I tutor friends at school in the program. I do the same with Exam FM. I am currently studying for Exam MFE, and UConn is considered one of the best universities for Actuarial Science.

Calculus

I took AP Calculus in High School, and completed college courses on Calculus I, II and III. Calculus is a large part of an Actuaries job when it comes to pricing options on stocks and insurance plans

Differential Equations

Actuaries deal with differential equations in many courses, in which I have performed exceedingly well. I have never taken Calculus IV (Differential Equations), but I have taken Calculus I, II and III (Multivariable) and several other courses where partial derivatives and integrals are essential to the coursework. I am well versed in manipulating calculus theorems and applying them to the material at hand.

Linear Algebra

I took a college course called Applied Linear Algebra. I received high marks on all of my homework and exams. I tutored several others on the material and still have access to my notes, a textbook and solution manual to aid the learning process.

Macintosh

I have self-taught knowledge of how to operate Mac OS X and iOS. I have successfully fixed several bug issues in the software for friends. If it's not a software issue, for certain situations I can provide an alternative way to accomplish the same task.

Microsoft Access

I took a course called Programming for Actuaries. Half of the semester was focused on learning Microsoft Access. I also learned the coding language for Access called Structured Query Language, which allows me to write a script for the program to follow and apply to the file I am working on.

Microsoft Excel

Took a course called Programming for Actuaries. Half of the semester was focused on learning Microsoft Excel. I also learned the coding language for Excel called Visual Basics for Applications, which allows me to write a script for the program to follow and apply to the file I am working on.

Precalculus

Took PreCalculus in 11th Grade, have tutored many people in PreCalculus over the years. Have taken courses for Calculus I, II and III(Multivariable), but I am also knowledgeable with Calculus IV(Differential Equations). I took AP Calculus in High School and earned a grade high enough to receive credit at UConn.

SAT Math

I scored 750 on the SAT Math section without preparation.

SQL

Took a course called Programming for Actuaries. Half of the semester was focused on learning Microsoft Access. I also learned the coding language for Access called Structured Query Language, which allows me to write a script for the program to follow and apply to the file I am working on.

Track & Field

I have been a sprinter and Jumper for the past 10 years. I competed in 100m, 200m, 4x100m, 4x200m, Long Jump, and Triple Jump. I worked alongside the coaches when I was named captain of my high school team to push my teammates harder and faster. I currently participate in the Running Club (RunUC) at UConn.
