George

Personal Statement

George is a retired actuary and investment professional who has a deep understanding of how mathematics is applied in the business world. Investment managers, economists, accountant, actuaries, engineers, and many other professionals rely on mathematical models to guide their decisions. Math was tremendously useful to him in his first career as an actuary. (A career repeatedly rated as the #1 career in America!) But while he has taken a lot of advanced math courses, he still finds that the simplest concepts can be the most fun to explain and discuss. Math at any level — even basic arithmetic — is subtle and beautiful. And he strongly believe that anyone can understand mathematics.

“…George explains complex math in easy-to-understand ways. He’s been very helpful and patient. He’s really taken the time to get to know my child’s strengths and weaknesses. We’re very happy with the lessons he’s provided.”

“…My daughter is in 8th grade and wants to take the SAT. This is a challenge for any tutor when the student has not learned the math she will be tested on! George is very thorough and patient by introducing and explaining how to solve math problems. He provides back up homework that is reviewed together in their tutoring session as well. George genuinely wants his students to do well. We are thankful to have found him.”
