Teaching Experience: Adjunct instructor in over 100 finance, statistics and algebra courses at various universities throughout the Chicago land area. Have tutored many college and high school students in statistics, finance, pre-calculus or algebra. Have taught for more than 30 years at Northwestern University's School for Professional Studies.

Currently, I tutor only finance and topics from an introduction to statistics course. If you need help with a case study in finance, I will guide you by making suggestions and/or critiquing your work. I will not do the work for you. I generally encourage students to use M.S. Excel for case studies. I will help students with more advanced courses in finance if I am comfortable with the material. In your request for assistance, please indicate which topic(s) you would like to cover.

If you have questions about a series of similar problems, I may show you how to do one or two. After that, I expect students to attempt the other problems on their own. I can make suggestions as you go along.

I will not knowingly help students with exams. Students who want immediate help (this day, this minute) are usually not prepared to learn. I will not meet with students on the same day of their request for help.

Education: MBA from University of Chicago (1986), majoring in finance and statistics; BSBA from UIC (1981), majoring in quantitative methods (primarily statistics). Started off as a math major at Washington University in St. Louis. Altogether, have about eight years' worth of college credits. More than 20 courses taken in statistics/econometrics. Includes many math, economics, accounting, finance and history courses.

Business Career: Worked as an actuary for more than 30 years. Made frequent use of statistical and financial concepts in monitoring company mortality and lapse experience and in pricing policies.

I have also been employed as an independent consultant in valuing various companies' inventories. I have occasionally been involved in the valuation of small companies.

Finance

I have taught many finance course at Northwestern University's School for Continuing Studies since September 1989 as an adjunct lecturer. I currently (at various times throughout the academic year) teach courses in the introduction to finance using M.S. Excel, investment theory, financial institutions and markets, and corporate finance. Many students with bachelor degrees (some with PhDs) have taken my courses. I have tutored many students, including graduate students, in this subject matter.

Statistics

Statistics

I have two degrees with majors in statistics - one a BSBA from UIC and the other an MBA from the University of Chicago. Altogether, I have taken more than 20 courses in statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate level. One of the courses, in econometrics, was at the PhD level. I have used statistical software for these courses, but I am most comfortable with use of either M.S. Excel or Minitab. I am not proficient at the use of SPSS, although I have used it somewhat. If you need heavy use of SPSS in your course, it would be best if you found another tutor who is much more familiar with that than I. For help in pure statistics at the introductory level, I know my stuff.

Probability

I have earned credit for more than twenty courses in probability and statistics, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, I worked for more than thirty years as an actuary, where I frequently used probability concepts in pricing various life insurance policies. For these reasons, I believe that I can help you understand how to solve your probability problems.

I really appreciated the time that Bill took to explain the logic behind the formulas. And to also teach me how to do this in excel so I can save them and practice them later. He’s a great tutor!
