About Randall

I am enrolled as a PhD student in Biostatistics. I currently hold a Master of Science in mathematics (statistics). My areas of expertise are probability and statistics, high school math (algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus), college math (pre-calculus and calculus), and micro-economics.

The method I have found works best is to have the student try to identify why the class is not going well. Often students get behind and get frustrated and say "I don't get it." This is not a good way to approach math. A student must learn to identify what he or she "doesn't get." Typically I try to go back to the last time a student "got it" and try to determine what went wrong at that spot and work to see if they can learn from there.

I offer my services in the greater New Orleans area including the north shore. I can come to your home (background check passed) or I can meet at a local library or coffee shop.

I welcome all inquiries and will be happy to take a few (or more than a few) minutes to review your educational needs to see if I may be able to help you with your issues.

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 passed the first actuarial test (Exam P) and have taken the coursework for the next 2 (Exam FM and Exam MFE) and received an A in both of those classes. I have completed the coursework for an MS in mathematics with a specialization in actuarial science. In my day to day work in the tutoring center at the University of New Orleans, I frequently tutor actuarial science students.

Biostatistics

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Biostatistics at Tulane University. I have mastered the content of the general biostatistics courses which are frequently called introduction to biostatistics or intermediate biostatistics. Advanced classes that I have mastered include non-parametric statistics, experimental design, regression analysis, categorical analysis, and clinical trials.

Calculus

I have an MS in mathematics from the University of New Orleans.

Econometrics

Econometrics is statistics applied to economic data. I am pursuing a PhD in statistics and my undergraduate major was economics. I am qualified to teach this class at the graduate level.

Linear Algebra

In the spring semester of 2014, I received an A in graduate level linear algebra. The topics covered included inner product spaces, dual spaces, canonical forms, the spectral theorem, quadratic forms, operators, the classical groups, multi-linear algebra and applications. This class had an emphasis on proofs to ensure a deep understanding of the topics and concepts involved.

In my current research, I use linear algebra on nearly a daily basis. I teach statistics, and require a basic understanding of linear algebra and its applications.

SAS

As a statistics graduate student, I use SAS on a daily basis. Specifically, I use it for single and multiple regression analysis. I have used it for categorical and survival data analysis. I write about 1 SAS program per week and complete about 4 major projects a semester.

Randy was very knowledgeable about statistics.

How to use SPSS to analyze descriptive data. He also tutored me on how to use graphics to illustrate measures of central tendency.
