I currently teach ESL at nights for "USA English Audiovisual School," in Plainfield, NJ. This gives me little time to tutor for Wyzant. But it does mean that I am very good at teaching English.
Most of my experience has been tutoring statistics for graduate students enrolled in non statistics programs. I learned what I know the hard way, and understand frustration many people have. All my tutoring experiences have been for classes with an integrated statistical computation element. This has been SPSS or SAS. I also know R and can teach you R as well. I also have used PIG, Oracle, SQL, DB2 and HIVEQL extensively in my day job.
I have taught pre-calculus, calculus, pre-algebra and statistics as well as run help sessions. I can teach you delta epsilon proofs for calculus if needed, or help you with abstract algebra, but at that point you should be studying with fellow students. I passed a couple of Actuary tests a number of years ago, that was in Calculus and Probability (100 and 110).
My goal is to give you an understanding of the material so you are comfortable with it and can then master the material. You will tell me what you know and let me see how you think about the material. If there is something that needs to be corrected or if you need additional understanding then I'll cover that. You will be the one driving the session, not me. I don't have any "easy" methods or short-cuts. Not because I am against that, but it is not my gift. I know others who can do that, so if that is what you want there are others who can provide it.
I can deal with people who are very frustrated, but still motivated.
If I do tutoring, I prefer helping those learning research statistics. But you need to post your ad in a subject area I am qualified by Wyzant to tutor.

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.
I successfully completed exams 100 and 110 a number of years ago and these have been converted to credit for COURSE1 which gives me a conversion credit for exam P. Exam P is the very first exam and covers probability.
So, based on the fact I have passed exams 100 and 110, and those convert to Exam P, I should be able to help people with exam P. Exam P is only the first exam in the list of requirements given by the Society of Actuaries for certification.
