## Profile

Hello! My name is Spencer Schott. I am currently a junior at SIUE and am working on a bachelors in actuary (math) science. I love to help people struggling with mathematics.

Do you have trouble understanding why math functions the way it does? I can help with that! Most mathematics can relate to the real world in some way. My goal is to find out how it relates and give you a hands on way of proving it. Together, we can make math as tangible as P.E.

Give me a call or text any time and we can meet anywhere you would like (within 15 minutes of SIUE campus). If you do not know a good location, there are several spots on SIUE campus we can use.

Simplicity is often something not attributed to math, but squaring numbers should be. Do you know why we say “the square of x is…”? It’s very simple, we are really saying “the area of a square with sides x is…”. Remember that any rectangle has an area of its length times its height (area=(length)*(height)). And…
