About Harold

I have a daughter, a grandson and two cats in Allen. I'm an actuary by profession which means I really know math. I like tutoring more than teaching because you know right away if the student understands what your discussing; you don't have to wait until you're grading a test to find out. This way I can adjust immediately as to whether to go on to the next thing or say something differently about the current problem. I really want to make math fun and exciting. That's how it is to me. It's something you need to know in order to do almost anything else so why not have some joy in it?

I aced all my math courses in high school up through calculus. I scored 790 on the math SAT. In college I took multi-variable calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, probability and statistics, etc. After college I passed actuarial exams in interest theory, life contingencies, etc.

I can teach you to solve any math problem, do better on the math SAT/ACT and get better grades in math. I look forward to hearing from you so that we can get started on this adventure together.

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 earned an ASA designation (Associate of the Society of Actuaries). This is an academic designation that means I have passed rigorous examination in all of the mathematical tests offered by the Society, all core actuarial mathematics subjects.
