Note: I have my area set as Port Republic because I travel from Cape May Court House to Stockton, and I am sometimes in Bayville at my parents' house, so i would be able to tutor in that area also.
I'm Shannon and I am a senior at Stockton College getting a degree in biology
. I love algebra
and biology! I want students to get excited about learning things by making them interesting and applying them to real life situations. I am not planning on becoming a teacher, but have thought about maybe after I have a career getting my teaching certificate so I can pass on my knowledge.
I have taken classes in math
up to calculus
at the college level, and love math and helping other people understand it. My chemistry
knowledge is up until 2nd level inorganic and I've taken biochemistry
. My favorite part of chemistry is redox, so if you need help understanding it and balancing equations, I'm your girl! I have taken various courses in biology including genetics
, cells and molecules, and evolution.
I have previously tutored at the very young level when I volunteered at the library, and in elementary school. I also have a sister 7 years younger than me who I help with homework.
I love music
and have taken a year of music theory
and have played the flute
for 10 years now. I love learning and I love getting others interested in learning also, especially children at the elementary level.
PS: Go check out my and other tutors' work on the lessons!

1) We need to set up an algebraic expression to solve this problem:
Let n= cost of a notepad
Let p= cost of a pen
First set up an expression for Cynthia's purchase:
cost of notepads*number of notepads + cost of pens*number...
Once you find the LCD, which you have done correctly, you have to multiply the numerator and denominator of each by the same factor:
2x (x-8) + 5 (3x)
3x (x-8) x-8 (3x)
2x2 - 16x + 8x ...
Factoring by grouping is convenient when there is no common factor among all your terms.
Take for example:
xy + 2y + 3x + 6
There is nothing common to all 4 of these terms, so we can try to factor by grouping instead.
Split the quadratic into 2 groups:
