About Chris


Bio

I am a state certified mathematics teacher with more than three years' experience teaching Algebra, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calaculus BC, and International Baccalaureate Standard Level and Higher Level Algebra, Calculus, Probability, and Statistics.

I am also state certified to teach Spanish. I majored in both Math and Spanish in college, with a minor in Secondary Education.

I am a state certified mathematics teacher with more than three years' experience teaching Algebra, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calaculus BC, and International Baccalaureate Standard Level and Higher Level Algebra, Calculus, Probability, and Statistics.

I am also state certified to teach Spanish. I majored in both Math and Spanish in college, with a minor in Secondary Education.

Finally, I've worked in the corporate world for four years as an Actuary, which involves using Calculus, Probability, Statistics, and a lot of Microsoft Excel to value liabilities for pension plans and insurance companies. I became a credentialed Actuary in 2018 with the Society of Actuaries.

I've taught the entire range of high school mathematics as a high school mathematics teacher, from Algebra I to AP Calculus. Additionally, I attained my ASA (Associate of the Society of Actuaries) in 2018, having completed the required actuarial exams, VEEs, modules, and assessments. I've worked as an actuarial consultant valuing pension plan liabilities as well as in life insurance valuing reserves for company financial reports.

I love math, but my real passion is in seeing people shine for who they are. I want to help you take your next step to achieving what you want in your life by making math as painless as possible. I look forward to working with you!

Actuarial Science

I have taken and passed all actuarial exams, modules, VEEs, and assessments required by the Society of Actuaries prior to June 2918 to achieve my Associate of the Siciety of Actuaries (ASA) designation. I have worked in actuarial consulting valuing pension plan liabilities using actuarial software (ProVal) as well as daily advanced use of Microsoft Excel in applying actuarial mathematics to calculate values for individual benefit statements for pension plan members. I have also worked in the life insurance industry using actuarial software to calculate reserves for annual financial reporting, to project corporate liabilities for annual cash flow testing and corporate budgeting, as well as using Microsoft Excel on a daily basis to validate actuarial software results and create data summaries.
Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I have worked as an Actuary for over five years in both pensions and life insurance. This line of work has required me to acquire an advanced working knowledge of Microsoft Excel by forcing me to come up with creative uses of Excel formulas, charts, tables and Visual Basic to use spreadsheets to summarize data stored both in and outside of spreadsheets.
