Hello. My name is Edward.

Without a doubt, mathematics and statistics at undergraduate and graduate level is both punishing and strenuous. To exacerbate matters, the subject often appears counter-intuitive to those meeting the material for the first time. Where do you turn for help?

Throughout our sessions, I focus on giving you a deep and thorough intuition for the inter-connectedness of the subject and its intrinsic meaning, allowing you to think for yourself and develop flexible mastery. Working together, I guide you to the correct solution to difficult test questions, using a Socratic method, leading you step by step in the right direction and without giving you the answers.

Learning to excel in the required coursework and examinations involves learning to reason more effectively, and that can only be taught with individual attention. Tutoring for many years has afforded me the opportunity to go through most of the available material, and I've pinpointed the techniques and strategies that work most effectively on each question type.

In the typical classroom setting, many students are unable to keep up with the pace of the assignments or lectures, have conflicting work commitments, or simply are unable to remember the appropriate tips and tricks under the time pressure of the exam.

Ill help you to put all of the material into perspective, and help you to better understand the tips and tricks that you've learned, so that you will be able to apply the appropriate technique to each new problem that is presented.

I will tailor our sessions together to reflect your abilities, goals, and time-constraints. I also provide much more individual feedback than could be possible in a large classroom, so you'll find that time spent with me is much more productive.

Whether you've taken a statistics class before, or if you've just been working on your own--or even if you haven't yet begun to study, I can help you improve your score.

With guidance and practice, the examination becomes a challenge you can meet with a level head. When you walk into the test center, feeling confident and prepared, you know you'll do you're very best. And when you finally get that A-grade, you can look back to this moment, knowing your decision to hire me as a private tutor was the right one.

Incidentally, I would be happy to provide references of recent A-grade statistics graduates to anyone interested.

I look forward to working with you.

With warmest regards,

Edward W. Browne
