Wayne’s subjects

Algebra 1

This subject is for students taking first year Algebra. Algebra I includes topics such as factoring, graphing, polynomial operations, radicals, problem solving, and inequalities.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is second year Algebra and covers more advanced topics such as logarithms, solving log equations, radical equations, trigonometry of any angle and equations, and imaginary numbers.

ASVAB

The ASVAB test is used by the armed forces to determine eligibility for positions in the military. A minimum score to pass is dependent on the branch. The higher the score the more choices the prospective applicant has for placement.

I am retired military and not only scored in the 99th percentile on the AFQT, I scored in the 130 range for all parts of this test. I cannot guarantee the same results for you but I know what it takes to do well on it.

Calculus

A firm foundation in introductory calculus is necessary to understand even higher level math. I can explain concepts to you and also show you using various resources on the web and using a calculator for completing problems.

Finite Math

My education (MBA) and experience includes graduate course work in business statistics, statistical data analysis, solving systems of equations using matrices, linear programming, and calculus. All of these topics are included in finite math.

Physical Science

Physical science covers several subject areas such as physics, chemistry, and earth and space science and is a survey level course to build on higher level courses.

Physics

For the last ten years, I have teaching experience in physics including classroom, online, and private tutoring. I have worked with high school through 100 level university students. In addition, I have completed several graduate courses in physics education. I will teach you how to setup and solve problems confidently and to have a deeper appreciation for the subject!

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is a fundamental course to Algebra and includes topics such as prime factorization, fractions, exponents, and solving simple word problems.

Precalculus

Precalculus is the last course prior to taking calculus! Not only will I help you with doing problems on paper, but also I will show you some techniques using a graphing calculator to more fully master the material.

Trigonometry

Knowledge of trigonometry is essential to progressing onto higher level topics such as calculus. A firm understanding in Algebra 2 is required in order to solve trigonometric equations. Topics include right triangle trigonometry, trig for any angle, and inverse trig functions.

Trumpet

I have been playing trumpet for nearly 48 years. My career included studying jazz under Bobby Alston, and completion of the Army School of Music. I retired from playing in various Army bands from a 20+ year career. My career included performances for President George W. Bush, The Prince of Saudi Arabia, and at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. In addition, I have played in various musicals, including the lead trumpet part for West Side Story. In teaching I have given lessons to several students in trumpet and emphasize proper breathing technique, reading, and interpretation to make the music come alive! I currently am playing with two musical groups.
