This is one comment from a parent.
1-06-14 This just made my day. I will get back with you immediately. I am driving right now. Please bear with me. You will hear from me tonight. I cannot thank you enough. Seriously. You have given me hope.
12-01-13 My current focus is on economic stability of parents and children in college by minimizing extra classes and repeating classes for graduation. I am in the process of developing curriculum that is part of STEAM, STEM, and METS initiatives.
The average college student spends more than five years in school and between 120% to 300% of the theoretical college costs. Tutoring can save between $100,000 to $300,000 dollars per student.
I urge parents to prepare their students in high school prior to college. This will also improve their chances for scholarships.
7-01-13 My primary emphasis is in tutoring college students who are failing science, mathematics, and engineering classes.
My secondary emphasis is to help high school students who would like to obtain scholarships and minimize financial hardships for their families.
I have now tutoring more than 1,000 hours with WyzAnt and have enjoyed the simplicity of their system. During the past four years I have been able to have my students obtain more than 4.5 Million dollars worth of scholarships.
I am an expert science and mathematics tutor, with a passion for teaching history of culture. My tutoring expertise is in all fundamental university subjects such as college mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry. I have taught more than 40,000 students (primarily high school and college) from a diverse array of university and high schools. In many cases scholarship applications coincide
with my tutoring sessions.
My current focus is specifically on tutoring advanced chemistry and calculus with an emphasis on university and advanced high school placement courses in mathematics and science.
Scholarship Totals: is greater than $2,000,000 and growing. My goal is to have my students obtain more than $20,000,000 in scholarships by 2016.
If you are failing a class at the university, college, or trade school, I can help stabilize your grades to maintain scholarship or financial aid eligibility.
The ACT mathematics is an examination that needs to be developed with consistency and clarity in conjunction with the students normal classes in science and mathematics. Science and Mathematics on the ACT can be developed more easily than that for the SAT (even though my students obtain perfect scores on the SAT). Proper guidance and logic are the main aspect that I stress when I am tutoring/teaching/training individuals of all ages.
The primary problem for students to overcome on both examination is the lack of rigorous algebraic drills.
The fundamentals of electrical and mechanical engineering are based on physics, chemistry, and mathematics related to instrumentation designed by chemists, physicists, and advanced technicians. The symbols for electrical engineering are used in most of the advanced classes in chemistry, physics, and mathematics related to engineering.
My focus is on the basic engineering courses that utilize my education in advanced physics, mathematics, and science.
The ACT examination covers many topics.
In my tutoring I focus on many advanced concepts related to human health and disease prevention for the promotion of healthier life. The overview of my science teachings is geared for improving life on our planet while trying to have students understand homeostasis for not only us, but all living organisms.
The ACT covers some major topics in environmental chemistry that may directly related to bioavailability of nutrients (biotic and abiotic) necessary for sustaining these life processes.
TABLE 1-1 Definitions of “Bioavailability” and Related Terms
A chemical element is bioavailable if it is present as, or can be transformed readily to, the free-ion species, if it can move to plant roots on a time scale that is relevant to plant growth and development, and if, once absorbed by the root, it affects the life cycle of the plant.
Generally used to describe the extent and rate of absorption for a xenobiotic which enters the systemic circulation in the unaltered (parent) form from the applied (exposure) site.
Hrudy et al., 1996
The availability of a chemical to an animal, plant, or microorganism. It may be assayed by measurement of uptake, toxicity or biodegradability.
Linz and Nakles, 1997
A concept that describes the ability of a chemical to interact with living organisms.
The accessibility of contaminants to microbes from the standpoint of their metabolism, their ability to grow on these chemicals, to change cellular physiology, and perhaps modulation of genetic response.
Sayler et al., 1998
A measure of the fraction of the chemical(s) of concern in environmental media that is accessible to an organism for absorption.
A measure of the potential for entry into ecological or human receptors. It is specific to the receptor, the route of entry, time of exposure, and the matrix containing the contaminant.
Anderson et al., 1999
The extent to which a substance can be absorbed by a living organism and can cause an adverse physiological or toxicological response.
Battelle and Exponent, 2000
Bioavailable: For chemicals, the state of being potentially available for biological uptake by an aquatic organism when that organism is processing or encountering a given environmental medium (e.g., the chemicals that can be extracted by the gills from water as it passes through the respiratory cavity or the chemicals that are absorbed by internal membranes as the organism moves through or ingests sediment). In water, a chemical can exist in three different forms that affect availability to organisms: (1) dissolved, (2) sorbed to biotic or abiotic components and suspended in the water column or deposited on the bottom, and (3) incorporated (accumulated) into the organisms.
The fraction of an administered dose that reaches the central (blood) compartment, whether from gastrointestinal tract, skin, or lungs. Bioavailability defined in this manner is commonly referred to as “absolute bioavailability.”
Algebra in my view is the fundamental mathematics for all of science and the majority of economics, statistics, and advanced calculus.
In being an expert in the teaching of Algebra,my teaching will save students many hours(days) as well as saving them from the anxiety of quizzes or examinations as well as lost time. Also, as you develop your techniques we will begin to minimize issue of stress that in the majority of high school cases will become non-existent.
I was a former Tax Examiner for the IRS and went through their entire training system.
In my business endeavors, I spend time with many individuals who are experts in Tax systems at the local, state, and federal level.
I believe that good businesses should have proper legal definitions with an emphasis on National Debt Reduction.
My primary emphasis in teaching autocad is to develop the programming methodology behind autocad or computer programming modules.
Advanced Analytical geometry, coordinate vector analysis, matrix systems with advanced algebra, calculus, and mathematical relationships are all used.
I am teaching several elementary, high school, and college students the fundamentals of autocad design programming.
Botany is the scientific study of plants. It was established as a science in early classical times when Aristotle and his pupils designed a systematic approach to studying and classifying plant species. There are many disciplines defined in modern botany, including many plant biology specialties and a variety of applied plant sciences. I am currently teaching botany to most of my biology, MCAT, and related students. Then to many of the Wyzant students as part of natural science philosophy.
I am an avid horticulturist, botanist, chemist, who has been teaching botany for the last ten years while teaching environmental chemistry, botanical nomenclature, environmental remediation, and other earth science related courses. True botany is one of the most difficult classes to teach due to the logical organization and colloquial nomenclature that transcends the entire span of human existence.
The first medicines by Galen, Aristotle, Hippocrates, and in the written record, the study of botanical herbs dates back over 5,000 years to the Sumerians, who described well-established medicinal uses for such plants as laurel, caraway, and thyme. Ancient Egyptian medicine of 1000 B.C. are known to have used garlic, opium, castor oil, coriander, mint, indigo, and other herbs for medicine and the Old Testament also mentions herb use and cultivation, including mandrake, vetch, caraway, wheat, barley, and rye.
My passion in botany is in the area of orchids. Orchid family is also known as Orchidaceae, commonly referred to as the Orchid family, is a morphologically diverse and widespread family of monocots in the order Asparagales. It is currently believed to be the second largest family of flowering plants (only the Asteraceae is larger), with between 21,950 and 26,049 currently accepted species, found in 880 genera. The number of orchid species equals more than twice the number of bird species, and about four times the number of mammal species. It also encompasses about 6–11% of all seed plants. The largest genera are Bulbophyllum (2,000 species), Epidendrum (1,500 species), Dendrobium (1,400 species) and Pleurothallis (1,000 species).
The family also includes Vanilla (the genus of the vanilla plant), Orchis (type genus) and many commonly cultivated plants such as Phalaenopsis and Cattleya. Moreover, since the introduction of tropical species in the 19th century, horticulturists have produced more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivars.
The Society of Rheology is composed of physicists, chemists, biologists, engineers, and mathematicians interested in advancing and applying rheology, which is defined as the science of deformation and flow of matter.
The Earth is host to more than several million documented species of plant life. In turn, our planet depends upon these plants to nurture and sustain all living things. Plants play a critical role in the complex food web. Powered by light from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air, and nutrients from the soil, plants pass on this energy to the life forms that consume them. And for the human species, plants bring aesthetic pleasure, delighting the senses with their beauty and variety.
Botany is one of the oldest branches of biology. It is concerned with the scientific study of plants and other similar organisms. Within the discipline there are many areas of study including Paleobotany (the study of plant history through fossils), Physiology (the study of plant cells and tissues), Pteridology (the study of ferns), and Plant Pathology (the study of diseases in plants).

My new business, Proximity Farms, requires the same business development metrics that many students need. I am developing a business entity that is similar to the SBIR Coach with novel advancement.
The business development requires significant advanced mathematics, statistics, and multiple-variable analysis for a large range of business, economic, engineering and design issues.
The History of the Calculus and Its Conceptual Development: By Carl Benjamin Boyer
Calculus and Advanced Mathematics is a critical feature of modern society, unfortunately we have not properly (in my opinion) learned how to teach it.
My background and teaching methodology is unique for the teaching of mathematics, but also calculus. With proper time and effort all my students perform with significant grade enhancements and significant less stress.
I am always looking for new entrepreneurs who want to improve their fundamental development of business mathematics.
During my extensive teaching and lecturing to many diverse populations, I have developed experience at moving individuals from one career to another. With my expertise I have been told by my clients and students that the transition had been less stressful than they had imagined due to my advice and counseling. My expertise has also saved many of my clients and students needless expenditures.
Education is an ongoing process, and I believe that foreseeing the possibility of wasted time and energy on insignificant issues or hurdles is where my strengths benefit my clients.
During my career in teaching I have taught students for the following transition examinations:
SAT, ACT, SAT II, NYS Regents Exams, AP Exams, TAKS Exams, College entrance exams, GED, ESL Exams, GRE, LSAT, NCLEX, MCAT, and many other board certification exams.
Please consider me for your career transition advisor. I feel that I will be able to make this experience as beneficial as possible.
My expertise in teaching advanced chemistry has earned students perfect scores on SAT II science examinations. Furthermore, most of my students generally improve two grades at a minimum over a 5-6 week tutoring program for their college or university courses. My emphasis is on reaction mechanism for the most advanced students.
My expertise in teaching the MCAT's and microbiology related concepts that are integrated with organic and biochemistry is becoming a unique academic subject by itself, while I am tutoring.
I suggest students who want to be M.D.'s to have some extra help starting in the fourth or fifth grade, while improving their mathematics skill level.
My six courses in physics related to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and my last three mathematics courses all dealt with advanced differential equations.
The most interesting course that contained differential equations was my advanced course in Advanced Thermodynamics and Kinetic Isotope Separation.
I have been teaching discrete mathematics for more than 20 years at a variety of levels. My Ph.D. and patents in chemistry, biochemistry, and physics are based upon advanced mathematics related to discrete mathematics and topological functions.
I have recently started a new business related to corporate training, small business development, and economics. The current economic systems that I currently teach are from the High School level to first or second year college classes.
A key area of my teaching specialty related to my advanced mathematics is in the area of interest rate fluctuations as well as logistical and distribution cost systems than can cause businesses to be profitable or migrate towards bankruptcy.
Divergent areas related to the construction, transportation, architecture design, food production, and implementation of natural systems are a consistent theme in the economic and advanced business integration systems that I am working on.
Wall Street has some clear examples such as Wonder Bread, Hostess, and a myriad of others that are now near or in bankruptcy.
Some simple concepts that are normally taught as part of business economics are:
National Orphan and Rare Diseases
Energy Data Information
International Government Websites
These more advanced courses are primarily taught by math and science experts at the University. My background in linear algebra is significant due to my advanced science related to my research endeavors in advanced science systems. Linear Algebra also used differential equations.
Logic is normally part of my teaching system in advanced mathematics courses. Logic, tree diagrams, Logic circuits (engineering), dendrimers, and other advanced science is part of my repertoire of teaching methods. Please add this certification to my account.
I have taught Logic systems for more than twenty years, including setting up one of the first comprehensive department wide computer network using logic diagrams and logical connections. I have just finished teaching three students logic sections for the SAT, GMAT, and GED.
I am a sophisticated instructor of advanced science courses with all the complementary mathematics. I can give students skills to generate scores in the 99th percentile. Organic chemistry is a simple subject when I teach it, although it has a voluminous amount of information. I suggest 2 hour sessions twice a week for six weeks for most students.
I have been teaching the NCLEX examination for more than 20 years to a variety of students. My teaching at the University was geared specifically toward Nursing and ACCEPTED Medical Students.
Advanced Nutrition, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy, Physiology, Biophysics, Food Science, Biochemical Thermodynamics, and Medical Diagnostics are some of the background courses that have been developed into a Cycle of Learning for the NCLEX examination.
I have been teaching nursing students for more than 20 years with an emphasis on improving their understanding of the complex natural environment and health.
Microbiology, Biochemistry, Physics, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry are the primary systems that I focus on.
I have taken more than 10 classes related to Organic Chemistry and have attended at least 1,000 hours of advanced lectures. My GPA in Organic Chemistry is a 3.4 at the Graduate School Level. All the organic classes were Honor classes with advanced training.
My background in Physics dates back to 1976, when I began looking at how fireworks could be designed with mathematical equations and complex physical parameters. In high school I built rockets and wrote computer programs to calculate trajectories. During college, I excelled in laboratory and experimental design systems with an advanced knowledge of inverse photoemission and surface science related advanced physics.
I currently specialize in teaching the physics of fundamental kinematics and advanced physics topics, especially related to quantum mechanics and light equations.
The fundamental mathematics of everyday living is based upon prealgebra. I firm, logical, and clearly organized mathematics teaching program that I offer not only will allow a student to excel, but will allow them to have a reduced school anxiety and stress level.
My main focus in teaching prealgebra is to develop a consistent and stress-free approach to mathematics and science.
Precalculus is the fundamental mathematics necessary for the SAT, ACT, and other core subjects in science and mathematics. My approach is very rigorous with a focus on College Algebra and techniques related to basic business mathematics. The future of business is based upon this one class and how it is applied to economics.
My ACT/SAT Math/English qualifications is geared towards improving students scores by 300-400 points on the SAT and 4-6 points on the ACT.
My primary focus is to improve students skill sets so they can survive at the University without causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, while decreasing their stress levels.
Statistics is the mathematics of the collection, organization, and interpretation of numerical data, especially the analysis of population characteristics by inference from sampling.
My knowledge of statistics is useful in my development of my corporate business related to Health, Society, and Cultural Trends.
I use OSHA, National Cancer Institute (NCI), EPA, and other health and safety systems to analyze statistics for the DFW region, but also for National or International trends.
Some Key terms from the NCI
An age-adjusted incidence or mortality rate is a weighted average of the age-specific incidence or mortality rates, where the weights are the proportions of persons in the corresponding age groups of a standard million population. The potential confounding effect of age is reduced when comparing age-adjusted rates computed using the same standard million population.
annual percent change (APC)
Annual Percent Change is used to measure trend or the change in rate over time. It is the "average" annual rate of change over the time series selected.
Annual Report to the Nation
An annual update of cancer death rates, incidence rates (new cases), and trends in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries collaborate to create this report.
A measure of the incidence of cancer within the population and an estimate of the financial, emotional, or social impact it creates. The burden of disease is not borne equally by all population groups in the United States.
Cancer Statistics Review (CSR)
An annual report containing the most recent incidence, mortality, and survival statistics, published by the Cancer Statistics Branch of the NCI. It presents a broad profile of the cancer burden.
During the last five years I have taught several hundred students, TAKS examination material.
