I have experience working with students with ADD/ADHD, and I am willing to provide a reference for this. Furthermore, I myself have ADD. I have learned study skills and ways of motivating myself that have helped me succeed academically.
Algebra provides the basics that all the higher maths use. It covers the real numbers, algebraic expressions and equations, graphing, and learning how functions work. I have tutored this before on a college level.
Algebra II builds on Algebra I and also includes more in-depth material such as complex numbers, conic sections, and various function families such as exponentials, logarithms, and polynomials. While I have not formally tutored this particular subject, I did take the class, pass with good grades, and helped others with it on a peer-to-peer level.
English is my native tongue, and I take pride in being able to use and manipulate it for beauty, interest, clarity and conciseness. This includes the study of literature, the writing of essays, grammar, punctuation, and all the little things that make something proper.
Studying for the GED takes patience and diligence. While I did not take the GED myself--I graduated high school--I know the material of the GED from my experiences in high school and college.
I have been using a computer since I can remember. My family had one of those old Commodore 64's when I was very little. Since I was 10 or 12, I have had and maintained my own computer, not shared with anyone. I have been using the internet since before 1995. I have used both the MS and Mac versions of Office.
Geometry is the study of space, be it two or three dimensional. I have a lot of experience in this, from basic problems of area to degrees of angles to more irregular shapes.
Grammar is "the study of the way the sentences of a language are constructed; morphology and syntax." As a native English speaker, I have a good feel for grammar, as well as knowing the rules of grammar.
I have taken a linear algebra course before and received a high grade and I have studied it on my own. I have gone through one of my Linear Algebra books and made notes intended to become study guides. It is one of my favorite math subjects.
I have been using a Mac with OS X 10.x on it since 2007. I have learned how to use many of the programs that are shared with Windows OS, such as Google Earth, Adobe Acrobat, Word, and Excel, as well as the Mac specific programs like iCal, iPhoto, and system preferences.
Photography is a hobby of mine, and while I am not a professional, I have a DSLR Nikon D90. I like taking photographs of plants and small animals such as insects as well as family and friends. I have not studied photography though a course, only trial and error, and books on photography. I use the rule of thirds, and I am constantly working on my composition.
Pre-Algebra is the study of the real number system and its properties. This is a subject I am intimately familiar with and have tutored before.
Precalculus is the review of algebra and the study of the real and complex number systems, graphs, functions and the properties of graphs of functions, and trigonometry. I have studied this in depth and have tutored it before.
Probability is the study of how likely something is to happen and how many different ways you can put groups of things together. I have studied this in depth and feel confident that tutoring it will come naturally to me.
Proofreading is the proofing of documents to look for grammatical errors, syntax errors, punctuation and capitalization errors, spelling, and consistent sentence structure, as well as checking for coherence and readability. I am very good at all that. I used to help my classmates on a peer-to-peer level with this.
The Preliminary SAT gives practice for the real SAT and enters the student into the National Merit Scholarship program if s/he qualifies. I took the PSAT and I am familiar with the material on it.
I have helped several students learn to read. It requires patience and encouragement, both of which I have in ample supply.
Over the years, I have learned study skills to keep up with the course. First and foremost is doing homework--at an allotted time. By setting aside a block of time, you take away that "I could be doing something more important (interesting, leisurely, or whatnot)" excuse. There are many other things I have learned help with studying.
I have read a lot in my lifetime and my vocabulary shows it. Science fiction, fantasy, nonfiction. My bookshelf is full to the brim with mostly textbooks and nonfiction books. I also have experience discerning the meaning of words based on context, from reading.
