I have been a teacher and a tutor for the last 20 years and my professional experience includes: teaching World History at Oradea High School and at University of Oradea, in Romania, European Eunion; and teaching Math,- Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Precalculus both in Europe and in US. I possess an English as a Second Language, ESL, credential and I have also professionally tutored students in the French and Latin languages.

I have recently obtained a Master's Degree and Teaching Certification in Teaching Mathematics from the University of Southern California, USC. During my classes at USC, my professors introduced me to new teaching methods enable my students to learn and retain the subject matter at a much higher success rate which provides a valuable learning experience retaining the classroom content.

I am a CERTIFIED TX TEACHER in MATH for MIDDLE SCHOOL and HIGH SCHOOL

I have spent my entire adult life teaching and tutoring students of all ages and skill level. I am proud that my tutoring and teaching work has made a big impact on my ex-students' lives, allowing them to accomplish their academic and professional dreams.

Aurora spent a great number of hours tutoring my son with patience, and was very accommodating with regard to his schedule. She is also very knowledgeable with the subject matter and genuinely concerned with his progress.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

The main goal of tutoring Algebra 1 is to develop fluency in working with tables and graphs, solving linear equations and inequalities. Students will also extend their knowledge of the number system to include irrational numbers, generate equivalent expressions and use formulas. Students will also start to simplify polynomials and begin studying quadratic relationships. My students will be instructed to analyze these situations verbally, numerically, graphically, and symbolically. I also instruct my students to apply these mathematical skills to real life experiences.

Algebra 2 is designed to build on algebraic and geometric concepts. It develops advanced algebra skills such as systems of equations, advanced polynomials, imaginary and complex numbers, quadratics, and concepts and includes the study of trigonometric functions. It also introduces matrices and their properties. The content of this course are important for students’ success on both the ACT and college mathematics entrance exams.

We will cover all the basic Math subjects including;

Addition/subtraction

Area/perimeter/volume

Decimals

Fractions

Geometry

Graphing

Measurement

Multiplication/division

Numbers

Problem solving

Ratio/proportion/percent

Time/money

The math portion of the GED test consists of four parts: Measurements and Geometry, algebra, data analysis/statistics, number operations and number sense. I will prepare the student to perform these math functions, solve algebra equations, arrange data, and interpret graphs, among many other skills necessary to pass this important exam.

Geometry introduces the study of points, segments, triangles, polygons, circles, solid figures, and their associated relationships as a mathematical system. Emphasis is placed on the description and use of inductive, deductive, and intuitive reasoning skills. Powers of abstract reasoning, spatial visualization and logical reasoning patterns are improved through this course. Points, segments, triangles, polygons, circles, and solid figures are the structures studied. The focus is on comparisons between these figures concerning surface areas, volumes, congruency, similarity, transformations, and coordinate Geometry.

WE will prepare for the GRE exam by covering the following topics.

CALCULUS

Differential and integral calculus of one and of several variables — includes calculus-based applications and connections with coordinate geometry, trigonometry, differential equations and other branches of mathematics.

ALGEBRA

Elementary algebra: basic algebraic techniques and manipulations acquired in high school and used throughout mathematics

Linear algebra: matrix algebra, systems of linear equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, characteristic polynomials and eigenvalues and eigenvectors

Abstract algebra and number theory: elementary topics from group theory, theory of rings and modules, field theory and number theory

ADDITIONAL TOPICS

Introductory real analysis: sequences and series of numbers and functions, continuity, differentiability and integrability, and elementary topology of R and Rn

Discrete mathematics: logic, set theory, combinatorics, graph theory and algorithms

Other topics: general topology, geometry, complex variables, probability and statistics, and numerical analysis

Pre-algebra will include a thorough exploration of the fundamentals of arithmetic, including fractions, exponents, and decimals. The students will be introduced to beginning topics in number theory and algebra, including common divisors and multiples, primes and prime factorizations, basic equations and inequalities, and ratios.
