My name is Jaison, I hold a doctorate in

physics from the College of William and Mary, and I want to teach

math and physics! My 14 years of professional experience span both education and research. As an educator, I currently teach

precalculus at Howard Community College and have been a tutor, grader, laboratory assistant, and laboratory instructor. As a private tutor, I have accumulated over 850 hours helping primary and secondary students make sense of math and physics. And as a research scientist, I am a published author and have conducted research in nonlinear dynamics and ocean acoustics.

My teaching focuses on understanding concepts, connecting disparate concepts into a coherent whole and competency in problem solving. Every student has different needs so my approach is fluid. Some need homework help, others need a plan to backtrack and review

algebra. Some need to see every step in a solution while others just need a little explaining for a concept to make sense. Some lack confidence, others lack motivation. Whatever the case may be, everyone has their story and the potential for success.

If you’re interested in working with me, feel free to send me an

email and inquire about my availability. I tutor within 5 miles of Rockville at $60/hr and $70/hr for home visits.

Hi omar,
First, lets make sure we know exactly what we need to find. Three consecutive integers, so there are three unknowns. We could start out by saying that each of these integers needs a label: x1, x2, and x3. But the key piece
of information here is the word consecutive, meaning following...

Think of it as adding two numbers 16 + 1/2 (When you say "16 and a half", using the conjunction and is a way of saying add the two numbers) You can't add them until they have the same denominator. In front of 16 is the implied 1, or 16(1). It may seem silly
to write (1) since multiplication...

Hi Karen,
Maybe this will help. Let's break it down into little pieces so bear with me! First, go by the DEFINITION of the absolute value.
|x| = x if its positive or -x if x is negative. So, lets consider something simple. |x| = 3. You know that x = 3 and -3. So, you know that...
