About Kenneth

My name is Kenneth Q. I attended Arizona State University and the Barrett Honors College, where I majored in math, finance, and economics. After graduation, I worked in Virginia for two years for a Fortune 500 life insurance company as an actuary. I have recently obtained my Fellow of Society of Actuaries certification in Quantitative Finance, and am now working as a quantitative developer for a top risk management consulting firm in downtown Chicago.

I have four years of tutoring experience at Arizona State. I first worked as a math tutor at Arizona State for two years, and then transitioned into a role as a finance and math teaching assistant. As a teaching assistant, I would run review sessions for students to help prepare them for their math and finance exams. Tutoring has always been something I have been passionate about, as I love to explain problems and help people understand difficult concepts. I would love to help you get a better grade in whatever class you are taking!

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 currently work as a consulting actuary for global leader in risk management in Chicago. I recently obtained my F.S.A. designation through the QFI track, and can help tutor any of the SOA preliminary exams. I am not far removed from the actuary exams, and would be happy to help any actuarial-degree seeking student.

Calculus

I took AP Calculus in high school and earned 5's on both exams. I then took Calculus 3 in college, and took more theoretical courses in real analysis/advanced calculus.

Computer Science

I am qualified to tutor Computer Science because I have four years of programming experience. I first learned about computer science when I took the AP Computer Science AB test in high school. I learned about Java, loops, and abstract data types when taking the course, and scored a 5 on the AP Exam. Since then, I have programmed in SAS and Matlab in school and at work.

SAT Math

When I was in high school, I did many SAT math problems and have carried the material I learned from SAT math to today. I am very familiar with the content of the SAT math exam, and would love to help students understand the structure of the SAT while at the same time developing a meaningful comprehension of the math concepts.
