As a child, mathematics
was a beast to battle. However, with determined parents, dedicated and persistent math
teachers throughout the years, I graduated with honors from college with one of my majors being mathematics. This accomplishment has taught me the significance of having people in my life that have shown commitment to my success, and I now want to be one of those people in someone else’s life through my tutoring.
I tutored math in high school and continued tutoring math and computer programming
for a year in college, where I graduated with a double major in mathematics and management information systems, and a minor in computer science
. My past tutoring experiences have taught me to be patient, optimistic, energetic and steadfast. They have also taught me to be creative as people learn differently and allowed me to explore my adaptability to different learning styles. I am currently a graduate student earning my master’s in teaching with a mathematics focus and am gaining worlds of knowledge that I believe benefits me as a tutor.
Before beginning any tutoring session, I like to meet in person to clearly identify and define the expectations you have in terms of learning targets. I like to learn a little more about you and/or your child. This helps me try to understand what your/or your child’s learning style may be and effectively prepare for our tutoring sessions, creatively incorporating techniques that may appeal more to the learning style.
If your expectation is to help you or your child keep on top of math, writing
and/or computer school work, I will provide the energy, patience and encouragement needed to keep you or your child motivated and focused on getting work done.
If you are in need of a helping hand with understanding math or computer school work, I will create a plan that:
1) assesses you or your child’s learning targets,
2) continuously improves and responds to you or your child to ensure that you or your child reaches the learning targets,
3) provides encouraging and motivating feedback each time you or your child reaches a learning target.
Allow me to be a form of support and encouragement through my tutoring.
Hope to hear from you soon! I will make sure to respond within 24 hours.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
Here are some of the resources created by Efe.

Unfortunately, I am not sure how to draw diagrams here so I will try hard to explain the steps well.
Given the information we have already:
1) (sin 11pi/6) is the same as (sin pi/6) in the fourth quadrant of an x, y axis graph. Therefore,
f(x) = 8x - 9x2 represents a polynomial with two terms 8x and -9x2. This polynomial is therefore a binomial because it has two terms. The degree of this polynomial will be the largest exponent of the variable x, which is 2.
Hope this helps!
To solve this equation you will need to simplify the equation by determining the greatest common factor and then solving for n.
2n2 + 4n = 0 (the greatest common factor among 2n2 and 4n is 2n)
=> 2n(n + 2) = 0.
Now solve for n:
