My name is Wendy. I have a secondary school (middle and high) teaching certificate in math, and an endorsement in psychology, and experience with most other subjects. I have been teaching for most of the past 20 years, usually in math, but often helping with many other subjects. I have developed a number of little tricks to help with remembering many steps and different methods. I try to make learning fun and develop a comfort with it. I don't want math to be boring or tricky, so I try to meet those issues. As a tutor, I promise to be punctual, reliable, and fair. I will do my best to help you to achieve your academic goals.

I have often wondered if there were more in other locales. When I earned my master's degree, it was completely online. In that time, I found myself able to communicate with my classmates for discussions, group projects, and peer tutoring in a very... read more

Ciara, to factor this type of polynomial, you need to consider what it looks like.  First, look for any common factors, which this one doesn't have.  Then, you need to look at it's form.  This trinomial is a standard quadratic where you have: ax^2+bx+c, where a=1, b=-1,...
