Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the fundamentals, or solid foundation to higher level math. This course deals with understanding the number system, graphs, inequalities, solving for unknown variables, manipulating equations, and many other conceptual methods required to solve a problem.

I competed in many local number sense and TMSCA math competitions back in sixth grade in 2002, and have earned many medals and trophies in this area.

####
Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the continuation of algebra 1, and will cover more challenging concepts that build off of algebra 1. The following is sample of the course material that students may be expected to know, and I will be able to help students understand these concepts as school progresses with the following topics. I have taken honors Algebra 2 back in tenth grade at Clark High School.

*Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities

*Matrices and Determinants

*Quadratics and Polynomial...

Calculus

Calculus is extremely practical to our real world. It also might seem complex, but the concepts shouldn’t be. I can help students understand their homework and prepare for their tests, even when they are cramming the night before an exam. Calculus involves mostly careful work of deriving and integrating techniques.

I took calculus 1, 2, and 3 at Collin College in 2009 and successfully made A's in all. These concepts were applied to the more challenging courses at UTD as a mechanical...

Geometry

I have taken honors Geometry back in ninth grade in 2005. I have utilized a lot of geometric concepts during engineering school, and the following fundamentals that I can tutor will include:

*Area of Parallelograms, Trapezoid, Triangles, and Circles

*Perimeter of shapes

*Volume of solids

*Points, Lines, Arcs, and Planes

*Complementary and Supplementary Angles

*1D, 2D, and 3D diagrams (Graphing)

*Angle calculations

*Congruence

*Reflection, Rotation,...

Physics

Physics is a very broad subject and practical to our everyday living. It is important to fully understand the concepts within this field, and I can guide you to understand your problems or prepare you for upcoming exams. Without physics, the world would fall apart. I have taken General Physics 1 and 2, and University Physics 1 and 2 back in Collin College in 2010 as well as Statics and Dynamics at UTD and earned A’s in all.

####
Prealgebra

Subject involving basic counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and most importantly, the order of operations.

####
Precalculus

Pre-calculus is a prerequisite to calculus and the topics learned in this course is extremely important to grasp and remember before moving on to calculus. I have taken honors pre-calculus back in 11th grade in 2007 at Plano East Senior High, and used a lot of these concepts throughout the courses in my mechanical engineering major.

####
Music Theory

Involves general knowledge of time signatures, rhythm of notes, and other technical definitions.

####
Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a practical subject and deals with angular mathematics that is incorporated in part with a regular high school pre-calculus course. This subject will prepare any student who will take calculus in the future. Students in a trigonometry class should be covering the following throughout the course:

*Unit Circle (Draw and memorize)

*Law of Sines and Cosines

*Half Angle and Double properties

*Sin, Cos, Tan, Cot, Sec, and Csc functions

*Special Right TrianglesRead More

SAT Math

The SAT Math Test is a college entrance examination that tests the student’s understanding of basic math, algebra, and geometry. Some analysis and thinking may be needed for the trickier questions that happen to show up near the ends of every section. I have taken the SAT Math portion and scored over a 700 when I took the exam back in 2007. Nowadays, after having exposure to many engineering courses, these recurring fundamentals never go away. I can help students understand the problems they are...

ACT Math

The ACT Mathematics section will mainly test the student’s understanding of Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. When I took higher level engineering courses back in my undergraduate, understanding these concepts is a definite MUST. I can help students get back on track with these fundamentals.

Algebra will cover 40% of the test, Geometry 30%, and Trig will be the last 30%. This is a 60 question test to be completed in 60 minutes.

####
ACT Science

For portions of this exam, it becomes helpful to read through the passages carefully and take note of what's given and could be inferred. I think this is where most of the mistakes are made since test takers tend to make false assumptions based on prior knowledge.

####
Elementary Math

If your child have a problem working with numbers, no problem! I am able to start from square one and work our way up to understand how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide.

Understanding how to do this is very important as this builds the fundamentals to do harder math.

####
Violin

I have the technical knowledge of the violin from scales, etudes, vibrato, left and right handed pizzacato, double stops, double harmonics, double trills, octaves, richochet spring bowing, string crossing, spiccato (lower, middle, upper half), slurred and non-slurred staccato, and tenths.

The lesson plan will vary from individual to individual. I must first assess the player's playing techniques and abilities when he or she plays for me. Then I can slowly fix what needs to be fixed,...

Poker

The standard rules of the game are extremely simple. You have a 52 card deck, with 4 suits, a dealer button, and chips. Everyone is dealt 2 cards face down. There can be a possible max of 5 community cards. You use your 2 cards to identify the rank of your hand. During each street, you can check, bet, raise, fold, or move all-in.

But… poker is actually one of the most complex games. There are many variations of the game, and I mainly concentrate on No Limit Texas Hold’em. Books beyond...

TAKS

The TAKS test was a mandatory test for students like me even when I was enrolled in school from grades 3 through 11th grade (exit level). This test determines whether if the student is ready to proceed to the next grade level. Each grade level will be different, because the students will have different subjects that they may be tested on. Each subject is divided among many objectives, which allows overall student test performances to be analyzed by evaluators to see what subjects students need...

TEAS

I have taken the computerized version of this TEAS exam back in 2010 prior to applying to nursing school and passed with high marks. This was a standardized exam which covers: Math, English (Reading), Language, and Sciences. Each section has a time constraint, which means you must pace yourself through the exam. I can coach through each section, and will help you pass this important exam.

Additionally, I can also teach test taking strategies for the PSB exam, which I have also passed...
