Many students have difficulty with Algebra.
Algebra need not be troublesome. There are a very small number of fundamental things that must be well understood. Once those are mastered Algebra is preposterously, ridiculously easy!

I recently completed COMM 101 Fundamentals Public Speaking at Ivy Tech Community College in East Chicago, IN with an A for a grade. I have several years of experience as a teacher which required effective public speaking for many hundreds of hours. As the manager of a business for several years, both marketing and employee management required effective public speaking. Several years of group tutoring and many years of group training have given me additional experience as a speaker. As the instructor of a personal computing class I gained additional experience as a public speaker.
My experience as a student, tutor, trainer and instructor, along with extensive research into the subject have
enabled me to master study skills. That mastery and experience has given me the capability to teach, or tutor,
active listening, reading comprehension, notetaking, stress management, time management, testing taking, and memorization techniques ( among many others ). I have found that my student's academic performance in general and in specific subjects is greatly improved by my teaching of study skills. Moreover I use those techniques extensively and successfully in my own learning and thus have come to understand the students experience and point of view. That understanding and experiences enables me to continually improve my study skills and my ability to teach them.
For three years I taught H & R BLOCK'S BASIC TAX COURSE. That is a 16 week ( 6 hours per week ) course in which newcomers, with no experience, learn everything necessary to prepare tax returns for H & R BLOCK, the nation’s finest tax preparation service. Many of my students went on to become accomplished tax preparers at H & R BLOCK and other places. I worked as a tax preparer for H & R BLOCK for 5 years during which I prepared thousands of client tax returns of great variety. In addition I taught H & R BLOCK'S Tax-Preparation-System, their unique software system for that purpose. I have interviewed thousands of clients and prepared their federal and state income tax returns. That experience, in addition to many years of teaching and tutoring experience, qualifies me to tutor Tax Preparation.
I have been helping people prepare for the TEAS test for many years during which I have
succeeded with dozens of students. As lead tutor at Ivy Tech Community College for two years I worked extensively and successfully tutoring many aspiring nurses within their field of study. I have a strong educational background in each aspect of the TEAS examination including grades of A at the college level in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology and a wide variety of Mathematics. I also have considerable experience tutoring other similar nursing examinations including NCLEX and HESI. I'm confident that I can help anyone seeking to excel on the TEAS examination. Thanks for your consideration.
