I have been an Educator for the past 22 years. I have worked in Elementary, Middle and High School settings. My tutoring style is very innovative because i teach my students to use their own abilities to solve problems. In other words, I teach the how to think. I use a great deal of analogies and past life situations that they are already familiar with to help them relate to the problem at hand.

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.

Algebra 1

Beginning Algebra students will be given a short review on their basic algebraic concepts from elementary math: mainly Variables, Order of Operations, Exponents and other problem solving skills. Then I will provide my students with a thorough knowledge of linear and quadratic functions including graphing on the x/y coordinate system.

Any time you are ading or subtracting fractions you want to find like denominators. So first list the multiples of each denominator until you find the smallest number they have in common. At my school the younger children call it skip counting. 4,8,12 Do the same with the 3=3,6,9,12. So...

Any time your top number, the numerator is smaller than the bottom number your answer is less than one, if top number is equal to bottom the answe is 1. If top number is larger the answer will be greater than 1.

The simpliest way to answer this question is use what you already know. .5 is 50% and .75 is 75% so any fraction that falls between the two would be a correct answer. 6/10, which is 60%, 7/10, which is 70% and  3/5,which is also 60 % but is the reduced fraction for 6/10.  Then you can...
