Tutor Personal Information
Tutoring Style and/or Experience
I graduated Villanova University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Currently, I am an Actuarial Analyst for an Insurance Company in Wayne, PA. I am currently taking a series of 10 actuarial exams in order to progress in my career. These are highly challenging math-based exams that keep my math skills fine-tuned. These exams have taught me effective test-taking strategies and discipline that I would love to share with any of my students.
The best way to learn and progress in Math is to practice as many problems as possible. This even means repeating some of the same problems over and over until a concept becomes second nature to the student. Our sessions will be very interactive because the student will not learn if I just do the problem for them. My tutoring style is to always ask the student what they think is the next step in the problem and guiding them towards the correct answer. This will train them to think for themselves and also give them confidence in solving problems. Also, its important to have fun! The student should not dread our tutoring sessions. My goal, besides increasing their grade by a full letter, is for them to look forward to our meetings.
