I want you to enjoy these sessions too, or at a minimum, feel good about them. I enjoy Mathematics
, and the opportunity to review, discuss, and learn is always welcome.
I've tutored both Math
and Computer Science
in the past. I've also been a teacher at the college level. I enjoy sharing information, and find tutoring to be both fun and rewarding. Professionally, I'm a Software Systems Engineer, with a variety of different projects in my background. I enjoy solving problems, and sharing knowledge. In my career I've had the responsibility to train junior engineers, which has always been fun. I find when ever teaching, you learn as well.
My background is that I was a double major in college, Computer Science
and Mathematics. I was a Math major just because Math was fun. When tutoring, patience, and asking questions is the name of the game. I'm willing to step through things repeatedly if required. I'm a bit old school in that I believe you need to understand why things work. It's important to have an idea if the answer you're looking at is reasonable.
As for logic I've had some symbolic logic classes in college, along with the fact that I work with computers and deal with logic at some level or another on a regular basis. I enjoyed symbolic logic and have found it useful when dealing with computers at the byte and bit level, which I've also had to do several different times.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
Here are some of the resources created by Steven.

(9z+8)(9z+8) An item raised to the second power is that item multiplied times itself
(9z+8)9z + (9z+8)8 Using the distributive property

This just an example.
Lets say L(y) is the function of getting life insurance. We could go further and say L(y) = 90-y which could be something like the percent chance of getting life insurance where x is your current age. We can see that past a certain age your chance of getting
There are a few ways to do this.
