30min increments: For =< 60mins lesson, you have to come near to my place; I will come to your place at >= 90mins. Statistics is none other than probability applied to mass random data. Let's go through the exercises together to familiarize yourself with tests and final exams. (IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)
About Rod K.

I specialize in Test Prep (i.e. SHSAT, SAT/ACT, GRE, among others) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra), Statistics and Science (especially Physics). I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and business strategy respectively. My interests include profoundly gifted learning for kids, human development and creation. I do not depend on tutoring for income that is why I only do it occasionally to maintain a certain level of quality. In other words, when there is a match in objective, budget and schedule, the educational journey is of fabulous discovery. I believe guiding a student is a wonderful privelege because effective education is life-changing. IMPORTANT: I only do in-person tutoring (i.e. I do not do online) because true learning is really multi-dimensional and personal not flat and distant. Please DO NOT book any lessons without reaching out to me first so I know what your expectations are. Finally, I am aware that other tutors, for any reason, may be in a better position to serve you; so in that case, we just move on. When I am not mentoring, I am involved in projects related to technology and service industries. I believe that the difference between the ordinary and the extra-ordinary is that little "extra." may Blessings and Peace be with you

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!
