Scott Hertzog Tutoring & Guitar Lessons
About this pro
As a part-time adjunct faculty member at Wake Tech North and WTCC West, I helped students in the Math & Science Center, so I am well versed in current college level math and science courses. I had broad exposure and training in adapting to individual learning styles and enjoy explaining concepts so that students understand them. I help students all the way from remedial math up to computer programming, statistics, finance and chemistry, and since I see a lot of students there, I am very current with the subject matter. I like to think that my background in counseling helps me to be able to empathize with clients and to be able to encourage them - I love to be able to see 'the light go on' when my clients finally 'get' something they have been having trouble understanding. Getting to see the 'a-ha!' expressions on the face of my students.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?As a part time adjunct faculty member with Wake Tech Community College, I took continuing education courses every semester to keep up with the latest in education and in the subject matter we help with in the math and science center. I also keep up with the latest developments in the field by interacting with professors and high school teachers and discussing learning strategies with them.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I helped a PhD student with some basic data entry into SPSS (data labels) and data retrieval, which was straightforward - once you knew which of the myriad of analysis tools to use. It turned out that to find the mean (average) of the factors (e.g. you have two types of professors at two types of University (Rank, University Type). Use Analysis->General Linear Model - Univariate, and include the Rank*University Type Factors in the "Display Means" box. Worked like a charm ;)
