Algebra 1
Easily dealt with are the following topics routinely covered in middle or high school Algebra I: handling equations(particularly in word problems), solving inequalities, explaining a variety of functions(including graphical interpretation), solving systems of linear equations and linear inequalities, handling exponents and polynomials, factoring polynomials, handling exponential and radical functions, and dealing with rational functions and equations.

Algebra 2
I can handle most topics in Algebra II and am especially strong in word problems, exponents, solving both logarithmic and radical equations, factoring polynomials, simplifying expressions involving both radicals and complex numbers, and describing the behavior(domain, range, presence of asymptotes) of a variety of functions, including inequality(to include absolute value), rational, inverse, and transformed. Conic sections is also a familiar area of expertise.

Chemistry
I am exceptionally knowledgeable in every important topic that is a part of each level (regular, pre-AP, AP, and IB) of high school chemistry and that is also a component of college allied health sciences-nursing (1405, 1406, and 1407) and GENERAL I (1411) and II (1412) chemistry. This expertise also includes thorough handling of the procedures and calculations involved in laboratory experiments for both AP and college-level chemistry. More and more, students, especially college-level and high...

Geometry
I easily handle any topic (including applications problems) covered in a regular, PAP, or honors geometry course and am excellent in both inductive and deductive reasoning, the various methods for proving polygons both congruent and similar, and the interplay between algebra and geometry in word problem situations.
Prealgebra
Prealgebra is that critical point between the student's prior math experiences and the more challenging upcoming courses in algebra and geometry. With my skill set in the basic handling of numbers and the symbolic representation of numbers and ideas, I will build up the confidence level of the student through patience and encouragement. This will establish a strong foundation for future studies.
Performance exceeding 90% was achieved on the Texas State Educator's Gr. 4-8 Math Exam.
Precalculus
I am proficient with general functions and graphs, polynomial, rational, radical, absolute value, exponential and logarithmic functions and their various transformations, fundamental trigonometric concepts, including the Laws of Sines and Cosines in applications problems, the cosine and sine of angle sum and difference formulas, handling trigonometric identities and polar coordinates, solving systems of equations in 2 or 3 variables, parametric equations, vectors and their applications, and graphing...

Trigonometry
I can handle most topics in trigonometry and am especially strong in application-type problems, converting between degrees and radian measure and polar and rectangular coordinates, solving trigonometric equations, simplifying trigonometric expressions and identities, graphing trigonometric functions and their transformations, and applying the Laws of Sines and Cosines to practical problems.
Biochemistry
My vast knowledge of both organic chemistry and 21st century human nutrition enables me to understand and explain many biochemistry concepts.
I have also taught multiple times a General/Organic/Biochemistry hybrid course.
SAT Math
I have multiple SAT resources which can be used from the onset to diagnose students' particular strengths and weaknesses in geometry, algebra, and trigonometry. Skill building strategies can then be modeled and implemented to bring students to higher levels of achievement on simulated tests.
GRE
I have very keen insight into general mathematical, algebraic, and geometric concepts such that effective problem-solving strategies of the types emphasized on the GRE can be modeled for the student.
ASVAB
I will assist clients with the verbal, mathematics and science sections of the ASVAB test.
Particular strengths are in unfamiliar word meanings deduced from context clues and in mathematics problems requiring both reading comprehension and correct algebraic representations and setups.
ACT Math
I have ACT math resources which can be used to diagnose students' particular strengths and weaknesses from the onset. Skill building strategies can then be modeled and implemented to bring students to higher levels of achievement.
Elementary Math
Students at the elementary level, particularly in grades 5 and 6, have been successfully tutored in math.
With patience I break down problems(particularly word applications)into parts that are simple for students to understand.
My approaches are also adaptable to different learning styles.
Organic Chemistry
To all Organic students who are either PRE-MED or related health professions bound: Please don't allow your potential fear of Organic Chemistry to sweep away your aspirations for achieving your career goals. I am here to solidly support you every step of the way.
I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and have gained much experience utilizing Organic Chemistry in the private sector, teaching Organic Chemistry concepts within both 2-year and 4-year colleges, as well as having tutored private...

Nutrition
I am exceptionally knowledgeable in the principles of 21st century nutrition and have even created an international food pyramid (which I have followed daily for years) after having conducted many years of research on the healthiest worldwide eating patterns. My fact sheets "The Maximum Mental Health Diet" are based upon the organization of this pyramid and are offered to any client at the first help session.
I also offer nutritional counseling for weight loss, increased energy, improvements...
