My credentials in tutoring, teaching at the University Level, and applying stats to real cross-industry problems is very extensive as testified from testimonials and feedbacks.
Statistics and business research are applied in all subject areas including biology, business, economics, psychology, social studies, and criminal justice. They all have in common as the required expertise in all three areas - descriptive, probabilities, and inference stats with hypotheses testing with selected samples.
Business and management are interrelated in many way and the school of business and management prepares students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in learning and applying the tools available and the competencies of successful managers to understand and apply the functions of business.
I have facilitated and tutored classes and workshops in business and management for ten years both undergraduate and MBA classes.Teaching available tools to students at all levels includes two levels of business overview. The first is demonstrating basic concepts in strategy, operations management,human capital,marketing and business law. The second or business overview II covers basic concepts in economics, finance, managerial accounting,and business research and statistics.I also offer pre-algebra and math classes to prepare students for the sciences and statistics classes covering the entire research process.
My tutoring approach in business and management incorporates the importance of ethics and social responsibility in business, and the importance of clear communication in business.
Main tutoring emphasis in business and management is the applications of theoretical concepts to real-life business cases for problem solving.
My entire academic experience has been in mathematics, physics, engineering, and operations research where differential equations of the first and second orders are used extensively for derivatives and optimization models.
My tutoring experience encompasses five years both one-on-one and workshops in academic administrative services to assist students in practicing math with algebra I, algebra II, trigonometry, geometry, and stochastic processes using differential equations of the first and second order in statistics.
In summary, my tutoring and teaching differential equations with hands-on practice exercises answering one or more of the following questions with students in a real laboratory setting .
1.Given a differential equation will a solution exist?
2.How many solutions exist for a differential equation?
3.If a differential equation does have a solution can we find it?
I would like to introduce my tutoring approach in Discrete Mathematics, which is a large part of my Bachelor's in Math and my master's in management sciences and industrial engineering. My master's included a number of graduate classes in learning the optimization models in operations management using linear and dynamic programming for identifying the set of solutions and the optimal one that maximizes profits or minimizes operating costs. Examples were in inventory and scheduling management, location of warehouses and distribution centers, routings in transportation, just to name a few.
At the University level, both graduate and undergraduate, we introduce discrete mathematics in statistics to cover discrete probability distributions. The workshops cover all of the counting rules (Factorial, Permutations, and Combinations). We also cover other discrete probability distributions such as Binomial, Hypergeometric, and Poisson.
In tutoring students at all levels, we demonstrate the application of these math concepts for improving reasoning and problem-solving skills. Teachers have found that discrete mathematics offers an excellent way for motivating students while challenging talented students at the same time.
Because many discrete math problems are simply stated and have few mathematical prerequisites, they can be tutored and introduced at all grade levels.
I completed my high school education in French Catholic Schools and lived in Paris for several years continuing my education. I have been tutoring French for almost two years and deploy interactive and visual aids including games for children and adults to master and speak the French Language. I taught French also at Wayne State University " The enlightenment/Renaissance" for a while. I have mastered the approach and adaptive strategy as a educator and tutor in Foreign Languages.It is almost my Native Language.
My approach as an experienced and certified tutor in GED is to initiate immediately the MATH and Writing Tests I and II. The math has 50 questions for 90 minutes and the Writing Tests have 120 minutes for 51 questions. Social Studies, Sciences, and Literature Arts will be rotated one at a time. We use the best interactive software for practice and real tests using assessed and selected software in compliance and with high quality.
Test details follow for review in preparing the study plan.
The GED test has five sections: Language Arts (Reading); Language Arts (Writing); Social Studies; Science; and Mathematics. The Reading Test consists of 40 multiple-choice questions on passages from fiction (75% of the exam) and non-fiction (25%). The fiction selections will include at least one from each of the following genres: poetry, drama, prose fiction before 1920, prose fiction from between 1920 and 1960, and prose fiction from after 1960. The non-fiction selections will come from two of the following genres: nonfiction prose, critical reviews of the visual or performing arts, or workplace and community documents. The Writing Test has two parts. The first part of the exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions in the following areas of content: organization (15%); sentence structure (30%); usage (30%); and mechanics (25%). The second part of the Writing Test consists of an assigned essay on some familiar subject. The scores from these two parts are combined to form a single Writing score. The Social Studies Test has 50 multiple-choice questions in four content areas: geography (15%); history (US or Canada 25%, world 15%); civics and government (25%); and economics (20%). The Science Test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions in these content areas: physics and chemistry (35%); life science (45%); and earth and space science (20%). The Mathematics Test consists of two 25-question sections. In the first section, a calculator may be used. The Mathematics Test covers material from the following content areas: number operations and number sense (20 to 30%); measurement and geometry (20 to 30%); data analysis, statistics, and probability (20 to 30%); and algebra, functions, and patterns (20 to 30%). Some formulas are provided for the mathematics section.
My credentials are extensive in business and management. I have been teaching graduate classes for the MBA program since 2002 at Walsh, Wayne State, Lawrence Technological and most recently University of phoenix since June 2004. I have been approved and certified to teach business research and statistics with Math, strategic planning and implementation, operations management, leadership and organizational development, quantitative reasoning, economics and finance. Acquired the designation of Certified Advanced Facilitator and assumed the faculty lead role for 3 years.
The first section of the test is the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) which consists of an issue analysis and analysis of an argument. The second section is the quantitative test which is comprehensive and tests the knowledge in algebra, geometry, and basic math. The third section is the verbal that consists of reading comprehension, critical reasoning,and sentence correction.
Most of my knowledge and skills are in the strategy planning and implementation. Education preparation is no exception and requires successful strategies to meet the requirements and/or compliance with the tests' contents.
The special Linear Algebra knowledge and skills development is an extension of Algebra I and Algebra II and deals specifically with the quantitative transformation of linear equations with multiple unknown dimensions into coefficient matrices with rows, columns, and vectors. The primary tutoring targets the two and three dimensional linear equations, and the graphics pictures of the equations in the format Ab=X where A is the matrix, b the vectors, and X the variables. Graphics presentations of the rows and columns identify all possible solutions to the set of linear equations referred to as "The geometry of linear equations".
I will be tutoring a basic course on matrix theory and Linear Algebra. The emphasis will be given to topics that will be useful in other disciplines such as in statistics for the identification of relationships between independent and dependent variables, forecasting with linear trends referred to as Regression Analysis and Time Series.
I have been teaching quantitative reasoning for business since 2008 deploying MyMathLab in linear algebra for students to practice and take weekly quizzes based on the syllabus and class schedule to solve simultaneous equations algebraically as the primary objective to conduct a linear regression analysis with graphics (row and column pictures), construct histograms and bivariate plots, solving application problems with one and two unknown quantities, learning the linear combination, elimination, and multiplication with rows and columns as depicted in pictures to identify all possible solutions.
Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II have some common areas and are treated differently in different classes.For instance, there are geometry requirements common to Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, and basic common reviews for refreshing.
The suggested tutoring sequence order for Algebra I is as follows:
2.One-step,two-step, and Multiple-step equations.
3.Inequalities (graphing included)
4.Proportions and Percents
5.Linear Equations and Inequalities
6.Systems of Equations and Inequalities
We use best practices for hands-on practice exercises which are interactive. The list is customized to correspond to the class materials, study guides, and/or worksheets.
I have the experience in teaching and tutoring most of the quantitative sciences in math and statistics including Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, and Trigonometry as a subject matter expert. Topics in precalculus serve as the transition bridge between algebra and calculus.
My approach is to review the concepts and begin practicing hands-on exercises both from the internet and assigned books and study guides. Precalculus covers sets, exponential functions, logarithmic and radical functions, factorials, permutations, and combinations,matrices and systems of equations, binomial, parametric and polar coordinates (graphics).
The strategy is to make all of these learning concepts manageable and applicable with the roadmap provided by the instructor for assignments and tests.
The SAT test is comprised of three primary sections: a critical reading section, a mathematics section, and a writing section. The critical reading section includes a series of multiple-choice questions that are related to reading comprehension and vocabulary. The mathematics section includes a series of multiple-choice questions and a group of fill-in or "grid-in" questions that are related to basic mathematical concepts. The writing section includes a series of multiple-choice questions related to grammar, sentence structure, and flow. The SAT test writing section also includes an essay question.
My extensive experience in statistics in business, economics, and social studies encompasses teaching as an adjunct professor both the undergraduate and graduate levels, tutoring for over five years face-to-face and conducting workshops. During all these yeas, SPSS and MegaStat have been extensively deployed as the statistical methods and tools to apply all of the statistical concepts for analysis, structuring and interpretation of the data and variables.
Most recently, several on-line graduate students were tutored from WyzAnt and completed successfully their graduate classes in social studies, criminal justice, psychology, and business using SPSS "Student Version 20.0".
Business Research and Statistics:
The approach to learning statistics is to have the hands-on practice exercises using visual aids and one of the technology tools such as Excel, MegaStat, MyStatsLab, MiniTab, SPSS, Aleks. The most popular tool is MegaStat which is an add-in in Excel Microsoft Office. Some students will use both the TI82 calculator in addition to the tool.
Reading Materials, PPT slides, Exercices, Business Research cases are all formatted in the same fashion and includes the following:
1. Descriptive Data involves the median, mode, standard deviations, variances, skewness, arithmetic mean and are referred to as the data dispersion or central tendency. Graphics most commonly used are the histograms,bar charts, box plots, stem and leaf.
2.Discrete and Continuous Probabilities with counting rules, combinations, permutations, and standard normal distribution curves with continuous probabilities and Z-tables. Discrete includes the binomial, hypergeometric, and poisson distributions.
3. Inference Statistics are the samples drawn from populations and include the five steps hypothesis overview with critical factors, significance levels, and sttatistics values for Z, T,F/Anova (Analysis of variances), Correlation and Regression analysis. These are also referred to as parametric while some non-parametric include the Chi-Square and others to handle non-standard normal distributions. The statistics values depend upon the number of samples testing and whether the population standard deviation is known.
My hourly rates include interactive support in between lessons for continuity and emergencies such as assignments, tests, business research projects, quizzes, and unexpected needs.
I have been tutoring and teaching statistics in business and management for over 8 years with very successful results. Students finish the course with more appreciation and understanding especially after they finish with good grades exceeding expectations and timely graduation.
The study skills strategies used in my tutoring, homeschooling, and academic levels both undergraduate and graduate vary based on the students' skills, needs, and progress. They are also based on the schools' grades ranging from the upper elementary to middle school study skills (grades 4-8) to high schools curriculum (grades 9-12) to LD/struggling students and on-line study skills.
The study skills vary but all have in common clues that include building vocabulary with the visual context clue incorporating pictures, charts, graphs, etc to help students understand the meaning of a word, math tips, good listening skills, strategies for taking tests, improving concentration, preferred learning style (auditory, visual, tactile/kinesthetic), and using acronymic sentences to remember information effectively.
I got recently certified by the University after 8 weeks of training in applying Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy (new version) to improve the remembering study skills strategy currently used by colleges and all schools throughout the country with all of Bloom's levels up to creating and inventing.
I have been using the Mangrum-Strichart Learning Resources and Products since 2004 for tutoring, and homeschooling. They have been developed for students from elementary school through college, and are used in schools, tutoring centers, and homeschooling throughout the United States, Canada, and many other parts of the world as the ongoing trend in accelerating the learning-centered process.
