ASVAB

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) measures your knowledge and ability in 10 different areas. It's not an IQ Test, but it is one of the ways to help out decide what job areas would be good for you. It is important to prepare, and get a good night's sleep and arrive on time. It consists of 10 short tests to complete in 3 hours. It covers General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, Electronics Information,
Auto and Shop Information, and Mechanical Comprehension. My education, work experience, and tutoring experience have well prepared me for ASVAB preparation. For the many that I have prepared, they have all surpassed the minimum by far and have heightened the chance to enlist beyond their goals.

Calculus

This course covers limits, continuity, derivatives and their applications, definite and indefinite integrals, infinite sequences and series, plane curves, polar coordinates, and basic differential equations. After mastering concepts of each of these topics, the student can feel prepared to understand and expedite using applications.

Calculus is the branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. Calculus is the study of change, in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations.

A course in calculus is a gateway to other, more advanced courses in mathematics devoted to the study of functions and limits, broadly called mathematical analysis. Calculus has widespread applications in science, economics, and engineering and can solve many problems for which algebra alone is insufficient.

I am well prepared and excited to share with you my knowledge and expertise of this subject. I have many years of theoretical and practical experience. This subject is the beginning of an advanced entity in your studies which you need a strong, solid, and positive foundation.

Be prepared for the challenge, and receptive to the knowledge. This is the opened door to the most complex techniques of your analytical ability. Let's take this journey together to greater heights of success.

Differential Equations

As a child growing up, I often wondered how things happened in time. Most of my suspense dwelled on the technical aspects of current physics and engineering. At teen-aged years, I discovered that my mental capacity would allow me to focus on engineering.

I started grade school loving and mastering Mathematics. As I proceeded year after year, education tended to satisfy my mental suspense to actually writing an equation to exemplify reality. In Mathematics, changing entities are called variables, and the rate of change of one variable to another is called a derivative.

Differential Equations are concerned with the problem of determining a relationship among variables from the information given to us about themselves and their derivatives. I am an electrical engineering major. For 30 years, I have studied, taught, tutored, and mastered concepts of Differential Equations. Though my knowledge is complex, I can and will be able to relate the most simplest to complex concepts to build a solid foundation that is recommended and required to master this course.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. It now covers a wide range of sub-fields including electronics, digital computers, power engineering,telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, and signal processing.

Electrical engineering may include electronic engineering. Where a distinction is made, usually outside of the United States, electrical engineering is considered to deal with the problems associated with systems such as electric power transmission and electrical machines, whereas electronic engineering deals with the study of electronic systems including computers, communication systems, integrated circuits, and radar.

From a different point-of-view, electrical engineers are usually concerned with using electricity to transmit electric power, while electronic engineers are concerned with using electricity to process information. The sub-disciplines can overlap, for example, in the growth of power electronics, and the study of behavior of large electrical grids under the control of digital computers and electronics.

Having experience first hand, majoring in this dynamic and challenging discipline; I have been able to apply concepts learned to practical applications in industry. With a strong background and immense knowledge, the long-term experience in industry has been rewarding. Loving this curriculum, I continually strive to achieve and master the many challenges ahead. With goals and dreams, comes conquering and achievement. I am able to provide knowledge, expertise, and application to your studies and relate you to the power of this awesome discipline.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have extensively reviewed and completed the comprehensive review that is available to Florida Educators.

The Elementary K-6 Content Review Module assists educators in reviewing content covered under the six main competency areas identified under Florida’s Elementary K-6 Certification guidelines. The primary focus of this module remains on the core content educators need to demonstrate knowledge of the competencies required on the current K-6 certification exam.

The Elementary K-6 Content Review Module:

*Provides a self-paced online content review.
*Is designed to help educators review and refresh their knowledge base in the areas of language arts, math, science and technology, visual arts/music, health and physical education and social science, as required in Florida’s Elementary K-6 certification exam.
*Provides relevant links to material on the internet for content review.
*Is designed exclusively for:
*ESE certified educators teaching basic education courses to students with disabilities in grades K-6, who need to obtain Elementary K-6 Certification to comply with requirements of No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
*Elementary certified general educators teaching basic education courses in grades K-6, who need to obtain Elementary K-6 Certification, to comply with requirements of NCLB.
*Elementary K-6 administrators seeking a resource to share when discussing content competencies required by new teachers teaching core content to all students in grades K-6.
*Educators who wish to pursue an independent online content review, without the option of earning in-service credit or instructional support.
*Requires participants to complete a demographic survey prior to enrollment and a satisfaction survey upon completion
*Allows participant online access to content material for twelve weeks from the date of enrollment. At the end of twelve weeks access to the module material will automatically terminate.

I have had first hand experience while volunteering at an elementary school tutoring in all subjects and leading a group of high-leveled mathematicians (students) for five years.

Elementary Math

* Counting, comparing groups, long and short.
* Patterns, identifying shapes, skip-counting.
* Bar graphs, addition word problems, counting coins.
* Place value models, reading clocks, fractions.
* Multiplication facts, line graphs, adding decimals.
* Adding mixed numbers, calculating probabilities, multiplying fractions.
* Finding percentages, area, variable expressions, exponents.

GED

Provide proficiency in science, mathematics, social studies, reading and writing. Passing the GED test gives those who did not complete high school the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency credential. Colleges that admit based upon high school grades may require a minimum score on the GED test for admittance based upon the test. Many government institutions and universities regard the GED test credential as the same as a high school diploma with respect to program eligibility and as a prerequisite for admissions. Every student that I have tutored for the GED have achieved advance placement for college.

Geometry

Required to relate skills from Algebra I and Algebra II to geometric phenomena.

* Analysis of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry both abstract mathematical and real world problems.
* Logic and proofs, parallel lines and polygons.
* Perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis.
* Similarity and congruence.
* Trigonometry and analytical geometry.

GRE

Analytical Writing

The analytical writing section of the GRE requires production of two separate essays in two distinct manners. The first requires the student to produce an essay in response to an issue which is presented, by picking a side and supporting it. The second requires the student to analyze an argument made by considering the strong points and flaws of the argument. The writing portion will enhance the student’s comprehensive abilities and analytical thinking skills. It will also help the student develop proper organization skills as well as thorough knowledge of grammar and mechanics.


Quantitative Reasoning

The mathematics section of the GRE tests the student’s logic and problem solving skills with two types of questions: quantitative comparison questions and problem solving questions. I will teach effective shortcuts, along with substantial mathematic techniques. My focus will be on basic and intermediate math skills, as well as competency in higher level word problems requiring extra insight.


Verbal Reasoning

There are four question types in the GRE verbal reasoning section: sentence completion, reading comprehension, analogies, and antonyms. The sentence completion questions test the student’s depth of vocabulary. I will focus on learning vocabulary words, as well as techniques to answer the question correctly. I will teach comprehension skills in relation to sentences and how to recognize clues or key words. The analogies, too, test the student’s vocabulary directly, as do the antonyms. The reading comprehension questions tests the student’s comprehension skills, based on reading a passage and answering relevant questions. I will improve the student’s active reading skills, while emphasizing inference and structural techniques.

Physics

Physics is a part of natural philosophy and a natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. It is the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves.

Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Over the last two millennia, physics was a part of natural philosophy along with chemistry, certain branches of mathematics, and biology, but during the Scientific Revolution in the 17th century, the natural sciences emerged as unique research programs in their own right. Because Physics intersects with many interdisciplinary areas of research, such as biophysics and quantum chemistry, the boundaries of physics are not rigidly defined. Implemented in my program are new ideas in physics often explain the fundamental mechanisms of other sciences. I demonstrate the opening of new avenues of research in areas such as mathematics and philosophy.

Physics also makes significant contributions through advances in new technologies that arise from theoretical breakthroughs. For example, advances in the understanding of electromagnetism or nuclear physics led directly to the development of new products which have dramatically transformed modern-day society, such as television, computers, domestic appliances, and nuclear weapons; advances in thermodynamics led to the development of industrialization; and advances in mechanics inspired the development of calculus.

I have mastered this course in all curriculums and have a thorough understanding of its purpose and all it has to offer.

Prealgebra

Natural numbers, integers, fractions, decimals, negative numbers, factorization, properties of operation (associative, distributive, etc.), order of operation (PEMDAS)with integers, exponents, defining a variable, translation of word problem to arithmetic expression and evaluating, step by step structure, basic geometry.

SAT Math

All math up to and including first semester of Algebra II - numbers and operations, algebra and functions, geometry and measurement, data analysis, statistics, and probability.

Spelling

Why do some people pick up spelling so easily while others struggle? Is spelling simply rote memorization? Let's take a look at the various components involved in being a good speller.

Phonetics - Children in kindergarten and first grade use what is known as phonetic spelling. They spell words according to the sounds in the words. This is normal for that age, and in fact, is an important skill to have. Phonetic spelling requires solid phonemic awareness – or the knowledge of sound-letter associations. It also requires phonological awareness – or an awareness of the sounds in words. A child must be able to segment a word into its sound parts in order to employ phonetic spelling successfully.

Visual Imagery and Sequencing - If English was a purely phonetic language, phonetic skills would be sufficient to spell any word. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Good spelling requires skills in visual imagery and sequencing. Simply put, good spellers visualize longer words as they spell them. Many children have poor visual imaging and sequencing skills.

Word Patterns and Secret Rules - Do you remember the rule "i before e, except after c, and in words sounding 'eigh'" such as neighbor and weigh?" Many little known spelling rules exist besides this popular one. For example, did you know that the final 'k' on a one syllable word becomes a 'ck' if the vowel is short?
Why does anyone need to learn to spell in this age of electronic spell- check? Electronic spell-checkers are a wonderful tool, but you must get "close enough" in order for spell-checkers to recognize the word and offer plausible alternatives. You must also be able to distinguish common homonyms when selecting the correct alternative (e.g. their/there, bear/bare).

The good news is that treatment can have a significant impact on spelling, even for adults who have never mastered the underlying fundamental skills needed for spelling success.

The English language is the hardest to learn with the many variations of words pronounced the same but spelled differently with different meanings. My program deciphers, explains, and create memorable techniques, sounds, phonics, and tools to produce the most knowledgeable speller.

Study Skills

Study Skills are designed to assist students through the requirements of their mainstream classes. Students should work on individual assignments given to them in other classes with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify information in a safe environment. I wil help prioritize to operate most efficient.

Students will have ample time to read, do research, or work on some of their homework/assignments. I will address study habits and organizational skills. There will be short and long term goal planning.

Students will be shown how to work one-on-one or in small groups to help achieve Individual Education Plan goals.

My program addresses specific study habits including: the importance of study skills, taking notes (texts and lectures), reading textbooks, test taking strategies, writing reports, problem solving, using graphic organizers. Students will also explore career and college options.

All of these aspects are important in study skills. In all of my years of studying, I have found that my knowledge and success is a result of my dedication and persistence in my study skills.




Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a field of mathematics in which the geometric properties of the angles
and edges of triangles are used to measure lengths. Real-world problems involving
trigonometry are common in engineering, physics, construction and design.

The Trigonometry course is designed for the students who will continue to Precalculus or for the college-bound student. Trigonometric topics include graphing, analyzing, and applying the six trigonometric functions. Scientific calculators and/or graphing calculators are integrated throughout the course.

CORE CONCEPTUAL OBJECTIVES

I. The student will analyze, apply, and illustrate the properties of the unit circle.

II. The student will determine trigonometric values, calculate the transformations of trigonometric functions and graph trigonometric functions on the coordinate plane.

III. The student will utilize and apply trigonometric identities.

IV. The student will utilize trigonometric properties to solve problems.

While tutoring during my 30+ years, I have mastered trigonometry and have at least 20 years' experience. I have one-on-one, classroom experience, on-line experience, high school and college. I've even had to use it in industry, while engineering, designing and training. Trigonometry is really a powerful, conceptual, challenging, interesting and fun subject.

Writing

Writing is our means of communication. The basis of good writing techniques is strong vocabulary, excellent reading skills, and superb comprehension. The many years of education that I possess, I dwelled on advanced writing techniques by learning and building vocabulary, mastering subject-verb agreements, and understanding and knowing proper sentence structure.

With many years of writing technical and non-technical papers, articles, essays, I have tutored and taught principles from simple to advanced. My experience is composed of more than 50 years of concepts in writing and current in today's requirements of successful writing.
