About Bruce


Bio

I love teaching and tutoring! And I am excellent at both!

I love teaching because students achieve improvement in their academics with me and I enjoy helping in that success. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience. Most of all, I love seeing the growth in my students.

I love teaching and tutoring! And I am excellent at both!

I love teaching because students achieve improvement in their academics with me and I enjoy helping in that success. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience. Most of all, I love seeing the growth in my students.

I have extensive experience in teaching and in tutoring. For example, I am an award-winning teacher of high school and junior high science. I am also a very highly regarded adjunct professor of finance, having taught a wide range of classes to undergraduate and graduate students at two universities.

I also have extensive experience tutoring students in biology, environmental science, chemistry, algebra, microeconomics and macroeconomics.

I am an outstanding math tutor, especially in one-on-one situations. I have tutored students in Algebra 1, Econometrics and Statistics for several years and, consistently, those students have shown significant improvement in their classroom performance since they have worked with me. One of my special attributes is the ability to understand how each student learns and to tailor my teaching style to that learning style.

All of my academic training (through Ph.D) is in Biology so I am uniquely qualified as a biology tutor. In addition to my Bachelor's degree in Biology, for example, I was invited to be a member of both the Phi Beta Kappa honor society and the Sigma Xi honor society in science.

I have taught Biology, Environmental Science and other science classes to both high school students and junior high school students and did so with great success, having won an award for Most outstanding Teacher. I have also been a tutor in Biology and Environmental Science (as well as Chemistry).

Econometrics

Econometrics

I have spent 30 years developing mathematical models for application in risk management at financial institutions across the world. Many of those models were based upon econometrics in which measures of the performance of banks (dependent variable) were predicted from measures of the US economy (independent variables) using general linear modeling techniques. As such, I fully understand all of the important variables that measure the U.S. macro-economy as well as the statistical approaches and challenges in relating those variables to the performance of individual firms. These models have been applied in many different applications, most notably the stress testing programs now required of US and European commercial banks.

Statistics

Bruce Stevenson is highly qualified to teach statistics and to be a tutor in this subject. During his 30-year plus year career in banking and finance, Dr. Stevenson specialized in the application of statistics to problems in risk management. This pioneering work involved both univariate and multivariate statistical methods and led to some of the most important statistical modeling work in the banking industry, including the stress-test forecasting methods that are now commonplace under the international regulatory framework for banks. In addition, he was one of the first analysts to develop statistical models of loan defaults that also is now commonplace in the risk management frameworks of banks. He is an expert in time-series regression analysis and in the application of Extreme Value Theory, and its associated statistics, to problems in financial risk management. Bruce has taught mathematics, science, and finance at all levels of American schools, including junior high school, high school, undergraduate college and graduate school. He has won awards for outstanding teaching at several of these levels. In addition, he has been a tutor in many of these subjects, most notably statistics. He is a scientist who holds a Ph.D. in Ecology and, in obtaining his graduate degrees, took all of the statistics courses offered by the State University of New York in Syracuse and most of the statistics courses at nearby Syracuse University. He applied a number of multivariate statistical methods to the data he collected for his masters thesis and his doctoral dissertation, including analysis of variance, chi-square analysis of variance and various regression analyses.

Patient and Smart Tutor

Helped me review my quiz. Also helped me understand how my Unit 3 Terms on regression and etc works. Raised my normal test grade of 50-60 all the way up to a 86.

Kind, patient, and smart!

Bruce is great! He is sweet, kind, professional, and listens very well. He is able to teach statistics well. My 17 year old daughter thought he was great! The location we met at was challenging (Starbucks). I recommend choosing a quieter meeting place when setting up a lesson.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Bruce and I went over a statistics assignment that I was having trouble with. We went through it step by step and he was so patient and kind. I couldn't have asked for a better tutor! I walked away from our lesson feeling confident. Thank you Bruce!
