Classes I've tutored include calculus, trigonometry, algebra, and statistics as well as with the actuarial exams. I've also tutored students taking the ACT, and I tutored them with the math portion.

I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in actuarial science and gained experience working as a tutor during my undergrad. Classes I've tutored include calculus, trigonometry, algebra, and statistics as well as with the actuarial exams. I've also tutored students taking the ACT, and I tutored them with the math portion. Through working as a tutor, I've sharpened my communication skills, especially when it comes to effectively communicating with a student, and kept myself well-versed with the topics. I'm really passionate about helping out and giving back and it makes me glad to see students succeeding and improving at every step of the way!

I've had experience tutoring college students when it comes math, from subjects like algebra all the way up to calculus. I've also tutored statistics, since I've taken many classes on that subject, and assisted with the actuarial exams. Over time, I've come up with my own style of tutoring, which consists of providing easier examples of certain problems to ensure that the student understands the problem as well as the topic. I think it's imperative that students learn as much math as they can, as this would help their college career and give them a good ideal on what to major in.

I would love to give back and help out the student as much as possible. It would be a pleasure to help out. If you would like to ask me questions or schedule a session, please don't hesitate to reach out!

ACT Math

Math is one of my favorite subjects, and this lends itself to how I excel with the math portion of the ACT. I have taken the test years ago and I've gotten a score of 30 on the math portion. I've been tutoring students with ACT Math and I was able to help one of my students bump math score up from a 30 to 35. I really enjoy tutoring that subject and it feels good to show off my knowledge in math.
