Actuarial Tutor: where finance and fun collide

Hi there

I’m John Lee, an actuarial tutor in the UK,
despite the actuarial exams,
still has a sense of humour.

I write books

Actuaries and humour: who would’ve thought they would go together.

Well, let’s just say it’s a niche market…

I create memes

Because pictures don’t have as many words…

I write jokes

Because laughing at ourselves is better than crying…

...And I teach actuaries

Finally, my actual day job involves helping actuaries pass their exams…
