####
Algebra 1

I use mathematical techniques that are first described in algebra in my school work. Characterizing and finding a system of unknowns is pivotal to everything that I do on a daily basis. I do not have a degree in math, but I understand the concepts well and know how to teach them.

####
Algebra 2

Graphs can be very useful for visualizing complex systems of equations, especially for non-linear ones. The use of matrices too can simplify the solution process for characterizing a set of equations. These tactics are taught in Algebra 2, of which I am well-versed in and know how to teach.

####
Calculus

Although I do not have a math degree, my field of study requires daily use of high levels of math (calculus and beyond). I am well-versed in problem solving tactics, and with a degree in education, I have been trained to find new ways to teach a subject as needed by the student.

####
Chemistry

I have a degree in Secondary Science Education, and I am working towards my Master's in chemistry. I have served as a tutor for many years amongst my peers. I understand chemistry better than just about anything else.

####
Microsoft Excel

I have never taken a class in Excel, but I'm what they are now calling a "Millennial," so as to say I was born into technology. I am very proficient with Excel and use it in my daily life, both business and personal - I'm a spreadsheet kind of guy.

####
Microsoft Word

I have never taken a class in Word, but I what they are now calling a "Millennial," so as to say I was born into technology. I am very proficient with Word, though I don't explicitly use it in my daily life. I rarely have a personal use for it, and at work I use a Linux machine, which doesn't allow for Windows programs such as Word or Excel, but I do use variations of them.

####
Prealgebra

I am proficient in math up through Calculus. Pre-algebra introduces the idea of solving for unknowns via real world situations. I have both a strong math background and problem solving skills.

####
Precalculus

I took Calculus in high school and went on to take more advanced math classes in college. I do not have a math degree, but I am adept at both math and problem solving - both of which are necessary for pre-Calculus.

####
Trigonometry

Trigonometry establishes much of the framework for Calculus and beyond. Much mathematical proof requires intricate knowledge of trigonometry especially in the realm of trigonometric substitution. I use trigonometry daily in my school work.

####
SAT Math

I received a 750 on the SAT in math, and a 790 on the GRE in math. Not only do I understand the material, I also know how to teach people some of the "tricks" of the test, which can help to reduce the time needed per question. As we know, the SAT and similar tests are really tests of your time management skills more than the subjects themselves.

####
GRE

I took the GRE over a year ago. I scored a 164/170 on the math and 157/170 on the reading. Those numbers correspond to 790 and 560 respectively on the previous scale. So I can definitely offer help to anyone on the math portion.

####
Physical Science

I am working on my Master's in Physical Chemistry. So by virtue of the program, I am taught the physical and chemical laws of nature and how to relate them to real world issues, I handle these kinds of problems every day in my work.

####
Macintosh

I am what you would call a "Mac Person." I got my first Mac when I started college, and I have used them ever since. While I am not savvy in the repair side of things, I understand how the computer works, and am versatile with the programs and terminology.
