I've been tutoring math of just about all subjects for 10 years. In that time, I've developed multiple ways of teaching mathematics in a level of understanding that is compatible to multiple mindsets, from people who pick up quickly to people who need time to understand - anything from simple addition to Algebra, from Geometry to Calculus, and just about anything in between. I've worked as a math tutor with Andrews University for 3 years, and I have invaluable experience being on both sides of the learning experience.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Multiple aspects of mathematics (Including, but not limited to Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, etc...) and their applications in various world functions.

ACT Science

Multiple aspects of science (Including, but not limited to Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc...) and their applications in various world functions.

Algebra 1

Topics in an introductory algebra class, containing but not limited to: Variables, Properties of Equations, Solving Equations and Inequalities, Relations, Functions, Graphing, Polynomials, Matrices, and Radical Expressions.

Algebra 2

Topics in a secondary algebra course, containing but not limited to: Solving Equations and Inequalities, Graphing, Manipulating Polynomials, Quadratic Equations, Conic Sections, Probabilities, and Matrices.

Calculus

Topics in a standard Calculus class, including, but not limited to: Differential Equations, Integrals, Series, Vectors, Multivariable Equations, The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and 3-Dimensional Graphing.

Chemistry

Topics studied in a typical Chemistry class such as, but not limited to: Atoms & Molecules, Stoichiometry, States of Matter, Chemical Reactions, Periodic Trends, Solutions, Gases Thermochemistry, Kinetics, Atomic Structure, and Nuclear Chemistry.

Discrete Math

Discrete Mathematics deals with the mathematical elements of computer science including propositional logic, predicate logic, sets, functions and relations, combinatorics, mathematical induction, recursion, algorithms, matrices, graphs, trees, and Boolean logic. As a math major in college, I have many different ways to handle these particular subjects, such as truth tables, mathematical proofs and logic.

Finite Math

Finite math deals with linear systems, sets, subsets and probability. As a math major in college, I have many different ways to handle these particular subjects, such as substitution/elimination method, venn diagrams, set notation, and scientific/graphing calculators.

GED

Topics in a typical G.E.D. standardized test, including subjects in Mathematics, Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Writing.

Geometry

Subjects typically in a high school Geometry class.

Prealgebra

Topics in a standard Prealgebra class such as, but not limited too: Natural Number Arithmetic, Fractions, Decimals, Negative Numbers, Factorization, Properties of Operations, Basics of Equations, Variable Manipulation, and the Coordinate Plane.

t^2 + 4z^2 (answer)

the polynomial t^2 + 4z^2 is actually not factorable with real solutions. If, by chance, you're doing imaginary numbers (if you don't know what the symbol "i" means, ignore this section completely), you can factor that by saying t^2 - (-4z^2) This factors into (t - 2iz)(t...
