I graduated from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon with a Ph.D. in System Science/Mathematics. My written and oral comprehensive exams were in Statistics, Probability, Analysis and System Science. I also have a Master of Science Degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Math with Honors with a Minor in Computer Science. I have also passed the SOA exam on probability, and am currently studying for the next one on financial mathematics. Outside of academia, I enjoy science fiction, MMA, video games and documentaries.
In tutoring math students, I have learned the importance of encouraging students to assume a very active responsibility for their own learning. My approach to learning facilitates their success in making sound strategic choices, reflect on their learning processes, collaborate with their peers, and fully participate in the dynamic learning experience. It is also important to me that they know what we are learning, why we are learning it, and how it applies to the world beyond the classroom.
My favorite subjects to tutor are Discrete Mathematics, Algebra, Statistics and Calculus. I am generally available for tutoring year-round Monday through Saturday, from 10 AM - 6 PM Central, but I am flexible if necessary.
