I've always had a passion for helping others succeed. Your success is my number 1 priority. When you (or your son or daughter) succeed, I too succeed. It's a great feeling to have a student "get it." Some professors cannot relate to today's students, and that sets me apart from them. Coming from being a student recently, and I know how it feels to be stuck sometimes and the professors cannot always be helpful. I am reliable, dedicated, and patient with all of my students. I will do everything in my power to share my knowledge effectively, and to make sure that the student learns from every lesson. I am a graduate with a Bachelor's in Science from Florida Atlantic University with a focus in Mechanical Engineering. Math and science have always been a huge part of my life, and helping another person understand and appreciate it is very rewarding.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Being an an engineering student, Algebra is always needed to solve various problems. I have been well-educated in the various subject areas of Algebra and have effectively helped others in this subject.

Algebra 2

Works with advanced polynomials, and learns more about factoring higher order expressions. Zeros become a key focus for much of the topic, as well as learning to solve real world problems using algebraic equations as a basis for the solution. Advanced functions such as Ln and Exponential functions are also explained in the subject.

Calculus

The focus on differences become crucial when dealing with advanced mathematics. Calculus branches into two sections, differential and integral calculus. In integral calculus, the student begins to understand how to find the area under a graph and interpret its meaning in various cases. As the student becomes more familiar with the subject, advanced analysis is taught to deal with differential equations.

Differential calculus is just what it sounds like: dealing with differences. The student learns to develop skills in problem solving dealing with rates of change and develops skills to use differential calculus with integral calculus to attack differential equations of various types. Also, differentials become the basis for some fundamental equations used in every day mathematics.

Chemistry

Chemistry involves more than just boring theories and difficult lab experiments. The student learns how certain physical phenomenons exist and how to use house hold products to create an interesting presentation. Nomenclature and Lewis Dot products help the student understand the structures and similarities in many chemical compounds that are used daily.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math includes the building blocks that teach the student how to solve real world problems. Usually the problems at this point are how to give back change and calculate simple interest; however, these fundamentals can help strengthen the students knowledge when entering into higher level math classes like Algebra and Geometry.

Geometry

Geometry introduces the student to many different shapes and mathematical models to help solve problems. Like, how much carpet must be used in a room with given dimensions. Sometimes the geometry in real world applications are not so simple, but a knowledge of the basics can be used to simplify the problem and make the solution a lot easier to obtain.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft excel is a great tool that can be used for many different applications. Although it may seem enigmatic, once the student learns how to navigate the interface and work with simple spreadsheets, it soon becomes clear how powerful excel can be.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft Powerpoint is a great presentation tool. The student will learn how to create slides and add animations to give life to the presentation. After learning the interface and how powerpoints work, the student will be ready to give a presentation like no other.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is more than a simple word processing application. There are many great tools that word includes that users sometimes do not realize are there. One tool, the equation editor, is great for adding complex equations into a report for a science project or scientific report. Other tools include importing pdf files and tables or graphs from other Microsoft Applications into the document to give it some depth. After learning how to access these tools, Microsoft word can be an essential tool for any project.

Physics

Physics includes a collection of various subject areas that explain every day phenomenon. How gravity works and how to approximate the time it takes for an object to fall. How static electricity causes someone to get shocked when they touch a doorknob. Even how an electric circuit is used to transfer power to operate a small device. Physics is more than just a class to dread in highschool, its an interesting collection of real scientists experiments explaining what happens around us and why things work.

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Jon-Erik. View all of Jon-Erik’s resources

Start by noting the variables: A(t)=A*ekt Where k is the growth rate (in decimals) and t is the time (in days)  A is the original amount or initial population, and A(t) represents the population at time t. So, The growth function is: A(t)=100e.117t   The population...

solve with log (answer)

The first thing to know is properties of logs.  If you recall the addition and subtraction properties: Addition: log(a) + log(b) = log(a*b) Subtraction: log(a) - log(b) = log(a/b) Then you will find this a little easier.   Furthermore, if you can express the...

solve......... (answer)

You may start here by getting exponential expression alone. 40e.6x-3=237 Start by adding 3 to both sides: 40e.6x=240 Then divide by 40: e.6x=6 Now take the natural log of both sides: ln(e.6x)=ln(6) .6x=ln(6) x=ln(6)/.6 Round the answer to the nearest hundredth: x=2...
