I enjoy tutoring math
mostly, as I plan to become a math instructor. I believe a big key to success in math is recognizing and understanding the terminology, as well as finding a way for students to comprehend and even embrace the processes they are attempting to follow. I know that everyone hears how math is the basis for most of what we see and hear, but mathematics
class is about seeing the process written down on paper, which seems to be the intimidating part.
I have four years tutoring experience, community college and younger students, and have a level II college reading
and learning association certification.
I am now a recent college graduate, obtaining not only a Bachelor's of Science
in Interdisciplinary Studies degree, but I also obtained my 4-8 teaching certification through the state of Texas!! My certification came with a requirement of student teaching completion, to which was a more than enlightening 16 weeks!! As I have already been offered and accepted a position as a 7th grade math teacher for the up and coming 2014-2015 school year, my plans for the summer are to focus more on aiding and assisting others through tutoring. I hope to step down as a Supervisor (I was promoted two years ago!) with Starbucks so that I can focus on not only bettering a student's comprehension, but bettering myself and growing with each student I tutor while spending more time with my own family as well.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my profile, and I look forward to helping you reach you or your child's educational goals!!

Looking at the equation, we know it is positive because the first term is not negative. It is raised to the 5th power so it will still be in the shape of a cubed graph. The positive four on the end tells us that the y-intercept is (0, 4) and that is
where the graph will cross the...
Finding the distance will require the distance formula, which is d = √(x2-x1)2 + (y2-y1)2
So you will take the difference between the x values and square them and add them to the difference between the y values squared and that will give you the distance...
If you and your son are graphing liner equations, then all you need to do is make a table, selecting different values for x and calculating for y. For example:
If your equation were y = 3x - 1 then you could choose 0 for x and then y would equal -1 and your...
