I am currently a math tutor at Georgia Gwinnitt Tech and a Full time High School Math Teacher. I tutored Calculus and Precalculus while in college at Mercer University. I also passed all the GACE exams on the math subject from Basic to K-12. I completed my undergraduate in Industrial Engineering and Masters in Instructional Leadership in Education.

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.

ACT Math

The ACT Mathematics Test is a 60-question, 60-minute test designed to measure the mathematical skills students have typically acquired in courses taken by the end of 11th grade

It Covers Three areas:
Pre-Algebra/Elementary Algebra
Intermediate Algebra/Coordinate Geometry
Plane Geometry/Trigonometry

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the branch of mathematics concerning the study of the rules of operations and relations, and the constructions and concepts arising from them, including terms, polynomials, equations and algebraic structures

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the study of the complex number system, symbolic manipulation, and functions

Algebra 2 covers quadratic equations, graphing, complex numbers, functions, sequences and series, and exponents and logarithms. Problem solving skills are emphasized throughout, and time is devoted to advanced topics like telescoping sums and piecewise functions

Calculus

Calculus is a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. It has two major branches, differential calculus and integral calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus. Calculus is the study of change,[1] in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations

Elementary Math

Elementary math comprises of topics such as:
Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Counting, Fraction, Rations, and Word Problems.

GED

The GED comprises five tests that comprises Language Arts; 'reading' and 'writing',. 'social studies', 'science', and 'mathematics'.

The math section is 90-minute, 50-question test has two equally weighted parts, the first of which allows candidates to use calculators, while the second forbids their use. Test-takers must use the calculators issued at the testing center.

Forty of the 50 questions are multiple-choice; the other 10 use an alternate format, requiring the test-taker to record answers on either a numerical or coordinate-plane grid. Both portions of the test have questions of both types. The test booklet offers a page of common formulas as well as directions for completing the alternate-format items and using the calculator.

The test focuses on four main mathematical disciplines:
Number operations and number sense
Measurement and geometry
Data analysis, probability, and statistics
Algebra, functions, and patterns

Geometry

The branch of mathematics that is concern with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs. It also concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space.

To be competent with Geometry, the following topics must be understood/covered:
Principles of Measurement
Principles of Euclidean Geometry
Cordinate and Transformational Geometry

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is a common name for a course in middle school mathematics. In the United States, it is generally taught between the seventh and ninth grades, although it may be necessary to take this course as early as sixth grade in order to advance to Calculus by twelfth grade.

Precalculus

Precalculus bridges Algebra II and Calculus. Precalculus involves graphing with angles and geometric shapes such as circles and triangles, and finding absolute values. You discover new ways to record solutions with interval notation, and you plug trig identities into your equations.

Probability

In math, probability is the likelihood that an event will happen. It is the ratio of the number of ways an event can occur to the number of possible outcomes.

Probability is expressed as a fraction or decimal from 0 to 1. The higher the probability of an event, the more certain we are that the event will occur.

SAT Math

The Mathematics section of the SAT is widely known as the Quantitative Section or Calculation Section. The mathematics section consists of three scored sections. There are two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section, as follows:
One of the 25-minute sections is entirely multiple choice, with 20 questions.
The other 25-minute section contains 8 multiple choice questions and 10 grid-in questions. For grid-in questions, test-takers write the answer inside a grid on the answer sheet. Unlike multiple choice questions, there is no penalty for incorrect answers on grid-in questions because the test-taker is not limited to a few possible choices.
The 20-minute section is all multiple choice, with 16 questions.

The SAT has done away with quantitative comparison questions on the math section, leaving only questions with symbolic or numerical answers.

New topics include Algebra II and scatter plots. These recent changes have resulted in a shorter, more quantitative exam requiring higher level mathematics courses relative to the previous exam

Statistics

Statistics is the science that deals with the collection, classification, analysis, and interpretation of numerical facts or data, and that, by use of mathematical theories of probability, imposes order and regularity on aggregates of more or less disparate elements.

In short, it is the practice or science of collecting and analyzing numerical data in large quantities.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that studies triangles and the relationships between their sides and the angles between these sides. Trigonometry defines the trigonometric functions, which describe those relationships and have applicability to cyclical phenomena, such as waves. The field evolved during the third century BC as a branch of geometry used extensively for astronomical studies.[2] It is also the foundation of the practical art of surveying.

Knowledgeable and Friendly — My son is enrolled in an accelerated math program. Prior to meeting Ben the teacher felt that my son should be removed from the class due to his slow academic progress. Thanks to Ben my son is now a B student in a difficult class. Ben is personable and my son enjoys working with him, he is also well versed in mathematics. He explains math in a way that a "regular" person can understand. Ben has ...
