##### About Nick

See, math can be fun too.

Hey everyone. My name is Nick and I am a senior at Illinois State University with a major in Actuarial Science and a minor in Mathematics. For those of you who have no idea what actuarial science is, I'll give you a quick run down. Most actuaries work for insurance companies, and their job is to measure and mitigate risk for the firm. They analyze data and use complex mathematical models to help manage the uncertainty of future financial decisions. So they pretty much try to use math as a "crystal ball" to see the future.

Anyways, I may not have any formal tutoring experience, but I do help a handful of friends and family members in math classes such as calculus and algebra. Come August, I will be a tutor at ISU so I am looking for a little summer experience before I start that job. I understand many students dislike math, but I love it. It's been a favorite subject of mine since grade school, and I hope my passion for this field can help inspire struggling students so they can maybe learn to love it one day as well.

In high school, I passed AP Calculus BC which gave me credit for college level Calc I and II. Also I scored a 35 on the ACT in math. This is when I really learned that I wanted to hone my math skills in college, and I was at first a physics major. Since my switch over, I have taken courses such as calculus, linear algebra, probability theory, and interest theory. As of now I am almost done with my bachelors degree and have a 3.5 GPA.

Math is hard. It is not suppose to be easy. You do not want to approach it as a memorization game. Instead strive for understanding and practice it a ton. Together, I think these are things we can accomplish.
