If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

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.

Algebra 2

I passed Algebra 2 in high school and have since taken up to the calculus level in college.

Biology

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

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

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

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.

Sewing

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.

Hello Mohammad,   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 ...

Hi Arthur, 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: xy+2y 3x+6 Now...
