More Than A Tutor For Penn State Students: iMathTutor Is Like Having A Personal Math And Stat Professor

If you are in a STEM major you will take many math and stat classes during your time at Penn State. Now imagine having one tutor that you can work with starting with your introductory calculus class and continuing through your advanced math and stat classes and on to graduate school; a tutor you will not outgrow; a tutor who can help you not only succeed in individual classes but can also help you tie together the ideas from your different classes; a tutor who can help you go beyond independent learning and develop mathematical and statistical maturity. In short, imagine having a personal math and stat professor.

I am Dr. Regis J. Serinko, founder of iMathTutor®, and that is what I have offered to Penn State students for more than 15 years. I am proud to have helped professionals, graduate students, and undergraduate students in a wide variety of fields with varied backgrounds to not only flourish in their classes but also to build a deeper understanding of the material and to achieve their professional goals.


I assisted an M.D. with his statistics courses at Hershey Medical School as he completed a master’s in public health.

I worked with a Penn State engineering master’s student — who has moved on to Stanford for his Ph.D. — in his Penn State differential equations (Math 410), linear algebra (Math 436), and mathematical methods in engineering (EMCH 524B) courses. Once at Stanford, he returned for help with a partial differential equations in engineering course (CME 204/ME 300B).


I tutored an undergraduate math major who went on to graduate school in statistics at the University of North Carolina in his advanced matrices (Math 441) and stochastic modeling (Math 416) courses at Penn State. I also helped him prepare for his Ph.D. qualifying exam at UNC.

I tutored an actuarial science major who worked as a calculus tutor at competing tutoring company in her advanced probability course (Math 418). One of my clients came to me for help when he decided to go to college after underachieving in high school. I worked with him before he enrolled at Penn State to bring him up to speed in college algebra and once he enrolled I tutored him in business calculus (Math 110) and introductory statistics (Stat 200). He performed well in both courses and went on too much success as an undergraduate and was eventually accepted to Harvard for graduate school.

Through the years I have helped many Penn State math majors (too many to list individually) over the hurdle of their first proofs class (Math 311W) and around the major stumbling block of the senior level real analysis course (Math 403).

I have worked with graduate students from numerous programs through their required statistics courses (Stat 500, Stat 501, and Stat 502). And there are legions of engineering majors that I have tutored from calculus (Math 140) through partial differential equations (Math 251) or who sought me out when their required statistics course (Stat 401) gave them problems.

Whether you are a freshman having trouble adjusting to college-level mathematics or statistics, a graduate student who is little rusty in math or fearful of stat, a professional looking to advance your career, a senior stumbling for the first time in an advanced course, or a student at any level who wants a deeper understanding or a competitive advantage, iMathTutor® is here for you.

I treat all of my clients with same dedication and commitment, whether they only need my help occasionally or if they meet with me several times a week through the semester. Further, there are no contracts to sign at iMathTutor® and no surcharge for not setting up recurring appointments.


I invite you to visit the iMathTutor® website to learn about all of the Mathematics and Statistics courses I tutor, my approach to tutoring, my educational and professional background, and my rates, which are very competitive. While you are there, you can fill out the Consultation Request form to arrange a free consultation to discuss your tutoring needs with me. Or, if you prefer, you can email ([email protected]) or call (814-­317­-6284) me.
