Statistics,

Statistics

I have had the good fortune to study probability and statistics as an undergraduate and in graduate school, then apply my education directly to the financial markets. The subject can be a bit baffling, so having a tutor with applied experience will accelerate the learning process and make it go much easier. I have explained this subject from every angle over the years and understand how to identify which keys will unlock the subject for you. My relative strength is in risk/gambling/insurance, but I am also well-versed in experimental design problems.

I know how to write, and I know how to make it easy for you to write. Whether you are penning a memoir, instruction manual, or college essay, it all works the same way and it is easy to learn. We write the words to communicate an idea. I can help you turn writing from a challenge into a "no problem" situation.

I made a very high SAT score with no prep when I was in high school. My mathematics education includes a graduate degree, and my professional work has relied on applied mathematics for trading interest rate derivatives. I teach at a concept level that works backward from problem-solving expertise.

Great Tutor!

Micheal tutored me on the SIE. He was able to break it down for me and I finally was able to understand the concepts based on specific examples he gave me. He always told me to reach out at anytime if I didn’t understand anything. I highly recommend him & will hire him again in the future.
