Computer Administrator with over 15 years IT experience. University Professor teaching computer-related courses including Microsoft Office, database systems, computer security, Unix, computer networking, programming and spreadsheet modeling. Also hold a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master's degree in Computer Science, graduating with a 3.8 GPA.
The ACT Math test requires knowledge of basic formulas and computational skills but does not require knowledge of complex formulas or extensive computations.
Personally, I have endured six years of University-level college in which I earned two degrees with an overall GPA of 3.8 on a 4.0 scale.
I know how to take tests, like the ACT Math exam as well as much more difficult exams like Microsoft Windows Certification exams or University-level final exams.
The ACT Math exam is a multiple-choice exam that almost encourages guessing; there is no penalty for incorrect answers. I can help you maximize your score on this exam by eliminating obviously incorrect answers and help you understand the concepts being presented and tested.
Understanding the exam and the material it covers goes a long way to remove the fears and maximize your score!
My educational background includes 4 years of University-level studies in Electrical Engineering which uses a tremendous amount of math.
I was first exposed to Algebra 1 in Middle School, so you can confidently say I have had a lot of practice with it. And, I have learned that the more familiar you get with it, the easier it becomes.
Algebra: You need to know it because Math builds upon itself. Algebra is absolutely core to every higher-level math class. Take the time to learn it thoroughly now so you will be ahead later.
I earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and a Masters of Computer Science, both of which require knowledge of Algebra 2 (as well as quite a few higher-level courses as well).
Math - especially Algebra 2 - is extremely detailed and exact. Miss a negative sign and you are toast! Learn tips and techniques to maximize your efficiency in working problems or applying Algebra 2 to situations that come up in life.
You will be a math wiz before you know it!
I graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, including Calculus 1, 2, and 3. My overall GPA was 3.8. I went on to take many other challenging math courses including Radar Systems, Thermodynamics, Control Systems and others. I also took Differential Equations.
I also taught adult students at the University Level for over 2 years. I am qualified to tutor Calculus.
My educational background includes a lot of math. In middle school, I took Algebra 1 and 2. In High School, I did Geometry, Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus before attending Florida Atlantic University for 4 more years of University-level math studies as I completed my Electrical Engineering degree. Courses such as Calculus 3, Statics and Dynamics build upon the Geometry I learned back in High School. I understand Geometry. And, I can explain it to others.
Logical thinking is a huge part of troubleshooting. I have worked as a professional troubleshooter (IT professional) for over 15 years; diagnosing computer problems has become a specialty of mine. I have also worked on Unix systems and scripted and/or improved various programs to ensure they do what they were intended to do while being very resistant to any problems that could occur. Logic and logical concepts are a HUGE part of programming, troubleshooting, and math in general. In addition, my educational background includes 4 years of University-level studies in Electrical Engineering, which uses a tremendous amount of math and logic.
I have even taught university-level courses including programming, database systems, and Operating Systems.
I am highly qualified to teach Logic.
I have professionally taught Microsoft Office, including Excel, at the University level.
I have also given workshops on Excel that span three days.
I have created elaborate excel spreadsheets that process hundreds of lines of data from multiple sources simultaneously and present the information in an easy-to-understand, summarized format.
Microsoft Word is a powerful word processor which can handle an impressive variety of data. Get the most of this tool by learning how to use it for real!
I have taught classes at the university level where students learn not only how to use Microsoft Word, but how to get the most out of it. Learn how to implement automation with Word and interface with the other Office products, like Microsoft Excel or PowerPoint.
Understand and utilize Word's built in formatting features to quickly get your presentation looking its best!
Take advantage of the color schemes and themes to give all of your documents a common look and feel, no matter what Microsoft Office tool you used to create them.
I look forward to sharing the power of Word with you.
I took Algebra 1 in Middle school and went on to take Geometry, Trigonometry, and PreCalculus in high school before attending FAU for 4 years as an electrical engineer. I have taken Calculus 1, 2, and 3, as well as plenty of other math-intensive classes such as Differential Equations and Control Systems.
I am definitely qualified to teach preAlgebra. I have already been approved on this site for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Logic.
I have taught professionally at the University level and hold two degrees from Florida Atlantic University, with an overall GPA of 3.8.
I have taken Calculus 1, 2, and 3 as well as plenty of higher-level mathematics courses in pursuit of my Electrical Engineering degree. I am definitely qualified to teach PreCalculus.
I have taught at the university level for over two years and currently hold two degrees. Part of my Electrical Engineering degree required me to take Statistics, dealing heavily with probability theory and Probability Analysis. This is a prerequisite course for other engineering courses, which I have also completed.
As an Electrical Engineer, we study noise, or at least account for it. We must predict the voltage (or amplitude) of a signal when it is unknown. We compute the power delivered by unknown signal sources. We translate a known signal into a mathematical model and then apply noise interference. We do quite a bit of analysis using probabilistic methods and analysis techniques. Probability concepts are central to this analysis.
I joined Toastmasters in October of 2010 and have been an active member of two different Toastmasters clubs for over 2 years. Currently, I am an Advanced Communicator Gold and an Advanced Leader Bronze. The Advanced Communicator Gold certification requires at least 40 speeches, 30 of which must be advanced, plus three other trainings - one of which is about 4 hours long. I have led panel discussions, brainstorming sessions, and consensus negotiations. I have mentored other Toastmasters and non-toastmasters alike. I have given workshops on Public Speaking and I have even completed the Dale Carnegie Strategies for Success course. I can speak in public, and I can teach others how as well.
The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. Almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions, so it is critically important to score your best on this exam.
Most students take this test twice - during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year.
Having been accepted to several universities (I chose to attend Florida Atlantic University), I scored 660 on the math section alone. If I had to take the exam again today, after six years of college and decades of worldly experience, I would undoubtedly score even higher.
I know how to take tests. Allow me to assist you in achieving your highest possible score on this very important exam.
Great Tutor Has Unbelievable Patience — Dear Future Tutored Student- Frank has been tutoring my 15 year old son with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
