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.

You, the student, are the most important person in any learning environment. If you have not learned, then teaching has not taken place. Because of this, my teaching style includes two-way communication. Rather than lecturing what I know in a mathematical topic, I learn your communication style and adapt to that.

While procedures can be taught to the degree that a student is able to produce correct answers, an intuitive and concept-based approach helps them to combine new ideas with older familiar ones.

I have more than 10 years of experience assisting people with math: over the phone, face-to-face, and in online classroom settings. One of my greatest joys is the privilege of participating in the success of individual students.

My tutoring style is marked by clear communication, patience, a love for math, and a genuine interest in my students. I look forward to the opportunity to participate in your success.

Bible Studies

I received a certificate of graduation from Fairwood Bible Institute, a three-year Bible school in Dublin NH. Five years after graduation I participated in a one-year program offered to graduates. This program was divided between classroom and fieldwork. The fieldwork included youth ministry and teaching Sunday School, among other things.

In addition to my Bible training, I have extensive experience in on-on-one tutoring, Bible-study leadership, expository Bible study articles and public speaking.

My knowledge of the Bible is deepened by the fact that I have read it through approximately ten times.

While there is no factor that is common to all the terms of this polynomial, it can be factored. When finding binomial factors of this kind of polynomial, we start by finding what pairs of numbers can multiply to yield the number at the end, which in this case is -4. The possibilities are: -4...

The slope of a line is a fraction, where the numerator describes the vertical movement and the denominator describes the horizontal movement. Right and up are positive and left or down are negative. To find the vertical movement, choose one point as point 1, and the other as point 2. For this...
