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 worked on Data Analysis, probability and Statistics in different fields, including in Economics, and Business. I have also taught Random process course to actuarial students through Wyzant online tutoring feature. When it comes to data analysis, statistics and probability I am fully capable to teach them to students of actuarial science field as well students of other fields like Economics or Business.

Econometrics

I have taught Economics, Statistics and Econometrics in University of Illinois as a PhD student.
Later as a faculty in Illinois State University I am teaching Statistical Reasoning in Economics which is essentially Econometrics.
I have also worked with Econometrics packages like R, Stata and SASS in the lat 15 years.

Finite Math

I am a faculty in Illinois State University. I have been teaching all different Math courses including Finite Math, Algebra,etc for several years in Illinois State,

Before that as a PhD student and a Teaching Assistant I taught so many courses in Math department in University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.

I have actually invented some games too that are related to the Finite Math and help students better understand these topics.

GRE

For the quantitative reasoning part of GRE, not only I teach you the materials but I also teach you tons of shortcuts for how to answer most questions in under 15 seconds so you have more time and peace of mind for questions that need more time to answer.

Linear Algebra

I have had several different linear algebra courses mostly in graduate level. I also needed to use optimization which is heavily based on the linear algebra for most of my career. Linear algebra has also been a topic that I have applied a lot in programming in software like R, MATLAB, etc.

MATLAB

I have taught Matlab to the undergraduates in the University of Illinois as part of an introductory computer science course.
I have also extensively used it for my research during both my Masters and Phd.
Finally, I have used it for work related purposes in optimization, drawing complicated 2 or 3 dimensional graphs and many other applications.

Statistics

Hi, I am an instructor in Illinois State University. I have been teaching and tutoring math and stat for 10+ years in ISU and before that during my PhD studies in University of Illinois. 

While in the last years, I have been tutoring and teaching mostly in academic institutions, lately I have been very active tutoring on wyzant platform and you can see from the reviews of my recent online students on wyzant that those who tried online tutoring with me are extremely happy with my quality of tutoring and have continued working with me for so many sessions. 

It is my expertise to make the most difficult topics fun and easy to understand and I am sure upon trying one online class with me, you will see that my online tutoring is far more beneficial than other in-person or online tutors.

Amir is wonderful. He is extremely prepared, and comes in with tons of thought provoking examples and ways to approach each problem intuitively. I wish I had found him sooner, and hope to keep working with him!
