I know that this is a problem area for a lot of students, especially word problems, but I love it! Algebra is just puzzle solving, and everyone loves a good puzzle. I've taken up to college level calculus in math, so any algebra problem you can throw at me I can help you tackle.
I passed Algebra 2 in high school and have since taken up to the calculus level in college.
I am a biology major at Stockton and just love the Biological sciences. As you can imagine, I have taken several different classes in many of the Biology disciplines.
Chemistry can be confusing for a lot of students, mainly because most of the work is conceptual and cannot be physically seen; however it is a very interesting field once you master the basics. I love to get students excited about science, and chemistry is no exception.
I passed the AP chemistry exam in high school and have taken 1 more year of inorganic in college. I have working knowledge of organic, enough to cover anything taught in a general chemistry class. I have taken biochemistry and I am currently taking the second semester of organic and an analytic chemistry.
I am certified in elementary math and science and have tutored elementary level children. I make learning fun and emphasize real-life situations in which topics can be used. Much learning comes from games and real-life activities.
Prealgebra is key to understanding algebra, so I teach prealgebra looking forward to the next step. I have always been interested in algebra, so I want to help students understand prealgebra, so they don't get lost in algebra. For most students the key to prealgebra is lots of practice.
I have taken a year in high school of sewing classes and received an "A" grade. I have been sewing and doing other work such as knitting and crocheting for about 6 years. I am competent in all of these subjects and would be able to teach basic hand-sewing and machine sewing skills, as well as following patterns.
