I am a patient and experienced male math
tutor available immediately with very flexible hours. If you need help in mathematics
, from the middle school through the undergraduate level, I offer myself as a competent and knowledgeable tutor to fill your needs.
As a mathematics graduate student, I had several years of experience teaching at the undergraduate level, in courses ranging from basic algebra
to first and second semester calculus
. I have lectured, written and graded exams, and held dedicated sessions with students needing extra help in math, so I am well-suited to assist you with your studies in mathematics. I have taught summer sessions as well, so I am familiar with the pace and pressures of the compacted curriculum. Additionally, I have experience tutoring students of all backgrounds individually, in most areas of math, including higher level undergraduate courses such as Linear Algebra
, Real Analysis, Statistics
, Differential Equations
, etc., and also high school AP classes.
I have also helped many students, including adults returning to school, in preparing for the mathematics (and even language
) portions of the major college entrance exams, including the SAT
I and II, ACT
, and GMAT
tends to be rather simple---a student tends to learn best when he/she masters basic concepts and techniques through guided practice and repetition, the subtler points of theory revealing themselves through the solution of problems, rather than through direct statements or lectures.
I live in Raleigh, but can meet anywhere within reasonable distance, including Durham, Cary and even Chapel Hill. Most students prefer to meet at coffee shops and libraries, or at their homes, but I am also willing to tutor from my home, if this is preferable.
Please contact me if interested in hiring me, or with any questions you might have. Please include some specifics about the subjects in which you need help.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.

Just for your reference (and since I don't have too much time right now), first find the eigenvalues of the matrix. Do this by solving
(2 - r)(-2 - r) + 5α = 0,
the solutions will be your eigenvalues (r = ±√(4-5α) for your reference)...
What's next is simply to solve the quadratic! So, multiply it out to get
r2 -αr + 5 = 0
and use the quadratic formula to find the roots, which will be your eigenvalues.
You have stumbled upon a series that I used to give my students as a fun challenge! If you really are stuck, I'll give the answer below, but don't look if you still want to give it a shot!
The first number is 1, so say "one." Now, to form...
