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.

Geometry

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that covers the following Areas
- segment measure and coordinate graphing. that introduces the learner to real numbers and number line and segment coordinate plane and congruent.
-Angles is another major area that looks at angles,angle measure and types of angles in addition to, the perpendicular line.
-Parallel lines and tranversal line; the leaner is exposed to transversal and corresponding line as well as the equation and slope of parallel lines.
-Triangles and concruence helps the learner to identify similar triangles based on ASA,SSS,AAS, and SAS.
the student learnes more about constructing median,altitudes,perpendicular bisector,angle bisectors.isosceles and right triangles are analysed.the learnere is guided to the pythagorean theorem.The distance on the coordinate plane.
-Triangle inequalitiestouches on segments,Angles and inequalities.It introduces Exterior angle theorem and triangle Inequality Theorem

Organic Chemistry

I have a bachelors degree in science education. I majored in math and chemistry teaching to college and high school students. Some of the course I took in chemistry are: physical chemistry, organic chemistry 1 and 2, analytical chemistry, electrochemistry, chemical kinetics, nuclear chemistry and physiorganic chemistry. I have taught and examined organic chemistry to high school students and tutored college students for five years. Currently, I tutor the subject to a number of students in life University GA. I have passed the GACE Science Test I and II. My accumulated experience in these courses have led to the development of appropriate teaching resources that help learners understand organic chemistry.

Physics

In mechanics the learner will understand motion in one dimension,vectors ,motion in two dimension, the laws of motion, energy momentum and collissions and circular motion and the laws of gravity and finally solids and fluids.
Thermodynamics deals with temperature,temperature scales thermal expansion of solids and liquids,kinetic theory of matter,heat,specific heat,latent heat and phase change, Energy transfer,thermal dynamic processes laws of thermodynamics and the Entropy.
Vibrations and waves exposes the learner to the knowlege on : Hooks law,elastic potential energy,compares simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion,motion of a pendulum,property of waves(frequency,amplitude and wavelength,speed of waves on a string,the interference and reflection of waves.in addition to characteristic speed of sound wave are highlighted.the doppler effect and interference of sound waves are discussed. Forced vibrations and resonaceas well as standing waves are illustrated in this topic.
under electricity and magnetism we discuss:Electric charge,insulators and coductor,coulombs law,the electric field and electric charge. Electrical energy capacitance and the energy stored in a charged capacitor.In addition to,current, resistance and ohms law,resistivity and power. morover,direct current, circuits involving resistors in series,resistors in parallel , kirchhffs rules are applied. On the other hand magnetism introduces magnets, magnetic field, magnetic force, motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field,magnetic field between two paralell conductors, magnetic field of current loops.
