I am qualified for all levels of Algebra including Algebra-1.
I believe that the previous Algebra certification, which I completed and passed with 100% grade, covers Algebra-2, since there was no higher available Algebra certification.
I am qualified to teach basic High School electronics with R, L & C components, which are sometimes taught as part of a physics course. Both of my degrees are in Electronic Engineering and I've taught basic courses at the college level as an adjunct professor to Fitchburg State College.
For 40+ years I used Fortran almost exclusively to develop simulation models for missile systems. At the time of my retirement, I was responsible for about 30,000 lines of Fortran code. My exposure to Fortran has therefore been very significant over many years at all levels from generating the code to verification of its operation.
I have completed a review of a high school geometry book as well as having taught Geometry as a substitute.
German grammar is relatively difficult compared to English, but on the other hand, the language is very phonetic. When one starts to learn German, the student may be overwhelmed by the grammar. To compensate, I find that faster association between the grammar and vocabulary is achieved by practice, practice and practice reading out loud, forming simple sentences based on the student's daily experiences, and listening to spoken German and lyrics sung in German. To this end I engage the student in simple conversation, provide sound tracks of spoken German in addition to my speaking, and provide simple songs with clearly enunciated lyrics.
Of course, getting the homework done, reading the homework lesson, or writing and explaining the grammar is first priority.
My knowledge of Linear Algebra is limited to having extensive experience in dealing with 3-dimensional vectors, frames of reference and rotation matrices to develop models of the physical world as was required in the simulation of missile systems. In this capacity I wrote many papers and tutorials presented at simulation conferences that presented these concepts and applications.
I also understand very well the use of determinants to solve simultaneous linear equations, and the development of inverse or transpose matrices.
Physics has been a life long interest and I completed a college undergraduate-level course as part of my BSEE degree. I've also tutored physics at the college level for WyzAnt.
Over the past school year (2012-13), I reviewed a popular high school Pre-Calculus text book (Demana, Waits, Foley & Kennedy), and completed most of the sections and tutored Pre-Calculus as part of WyzAnt.
I worked for a learning facility that specialized in preparing students for the SAT exams and am aware of the strategies that maximize a student's math scores. Given that I am proficient in Algebra and Geometry, I am well qualified to prepare and to explain the types of questions asked on Math SAT tests.
I am well qualified to tutor Trigonometry because of my many years of using trigonometric relationships at my job. I am also current with the content of a high school trigonometric course because I recently reviewed and completed all of the odd-numbered problems (for which there were answers) in a high school pre-calculus book, which had about 200 pages and three chapters dedicated to trigonometry. My previous experience tutoring Algebra, Physics & German have shown that I can communicate and be helpful to the student.
