...My approach is to motivate each formula I introduce, stating its function, and analyzing some of its strengths and weaknesses. For example, why is the median a better estimator than the mean in certain situations? Because it is more robust to the presence of outliers and many practical examples can be easily concocted.

...I love to tutor, talk about and teach mathematics. For me mathematics is fun and I hope it will become fun for the students I work with. Though abilities range from student to student, I don't believe anyone cannot master the math they need for their classes.

...I have tutored and studied, at a graduate level, a broad range a math topics including multi-variable calculus, number theory, and abstract algebra. This gives me a solid understanding of the Mathematics and Statistics material taught at the high school and undergraduate level. But most importantly, I am excited and enthusiastic to do it.
