Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

Excel has always been one of my favorite computer applications, in the classroom, on the job, and off the job. As an Actuarial Candidate, I have used spreadsheets for pension plan administration, for balancing investment portfolios, and for predictive modeling of stock option pricing.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I excelled in Algebra 1 when I was a freshman in high school. My most vivid memory of that class was after a graded exam was returned, the teacher said, "There is one student who would received a score of 99. He would have received 100 if he placed a period on his answer to the last question." He looked in my direction and the class laughed. Today, I am an Actuarial Candidate, having completed the first two exams administered by the Society of Actuaries, and completing an MS degree in Actuarial Science from Columbia University.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is one of the most common subjects that I have helped students with year-round, since 2008. Personally, I completed the course when I was a sophomore in high school, advancing to pass the AP Calculus BC exam in my senior year. Tutoring with me, students not only learn the material, but I teach them more efficient methods to solve problems in intermediate algebra.
Calculus,

Calculus

As a senior in high school, I passed the AP Calculus BC Exam, and completed Calculus 3 during my first semester of college. Since 2008, I have tutored students in calculus courses. I have passed the first two actuarial exams, which both use Calculus. Previously, I worked as a teacher for Clark County School District, licensed to teach mathematics through calculus.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Since I began tutoring professionally in 2008, an important part of my practice is helping students improve pre-algebra skills that limit their learning performance in higher level math courses. Pre-algebra itself is a course that most students must succeed in to graduate. It is also helpful for everyday math tasks.

Knowledgeable tutor

I am a rookie with Excel and data analysis. Ken taught me how to use the data analysis in several easy steps. He is also teaching me how to interpret the data which is very important in my coursework.
