# Currently offering tutoring sessions in math, statistics, and chess

Let me start off this blog with some questions:

- Are you currently taking a math/statistics course and need help in it?
- Do you have a child or know someone who is currently taking a math/statistics course and needs help in it?
- Are you working on a project for school or for work that can use some statistical consulting?
- Are you planning on taking either the SAT, ACT, GRE, and/or PRAXIS exams in the near future and need help in preparing for the math/quantitative portion of the test?
- Do you have a child or know someone who plans on taking either the SAT, ACT, GRE, and/or PRAXIS exams in the near future and needs help in preparing for the math/quantitative portion of the test?
- Are you a beginner/intermediate chess player who is willing to learn and/or improve?
- Do you have a child or know someone who is currently a beginner/intermediate chess player who is willing to learn and/or improve?

So if you are interested in my tutoring and/or consulting services, I suggest you go to my tutoring profile (URL: **http://takelessons.com/profile/william-b47) **and book me. As you will notice on my tutoring profile, my hourly rate for tutoring is $40/hour (which is not any more expensive than purchasing tutoring through any online tutoring company such as Tutor.com).
