Learn AND have fun?? Blasphemy, if you ask some people; essential, if you ask me.
After a dozen years in the corporate grind, I'm over it. I'm finally pursuing what I love -- writing
, languages and teaching. I'm nearing completion of my second book. I also teach Swedish through a local non-profit (was an exchange student many moons ago), an experience that helped me realize how much I love teaching. I'm planning on transitioning to full-time teaching within a year, and have been freelance tutoring for over a year now. My main areas of concentration have been: English
, government/social studies
, exam prep (i.e., GRE
, government and study skills
. I have also tutored elementary math
and am comfortable up through pre-Algebra
. That's my nephew in the pic -- I love kids and have worked with ages 4-18, but I also work with many adults primarily on ESL, exam prep and essay
When it comes to teaching and learning, my methodology is quite simple -- don't just tell students facts; tell them as much as possible WHY things are the way they are -- context and perspective can go a long way toward helping students to not just memorize a fact, but to truly conceptualize. I look forward to helping you or your student get over the hump with your/their academic challenges. If I cannot help you with the subject at hand, I will not waste your money or anybody's time and will do my best to refer you to someone who can.
I typically meet clients either in-home or at the library, but I am flexible within Arlington and the DC Metro area. My hourly rates are extremely competitive and I am more than happy to provide references. Thank you and have an awesome day!

Paul's answer is certainly a good one, and correct; however, there is another way to look at this, in addition to the 1-squared (1x1), 2-squared (2x2), etc as Paul pointed out. You could look at it as the number of units (bales of hay) each level increases
by 1, 3, 5 (and continuing from...
The short answer is Yes, it is within 5%. To prove/solve, first figure out the difference between 6149.10 and 6265.10, which is 116. Then divide 116 by 6149.10, 116/6149.10 = 0.0188. This of course is a fraction; to express it as a percentage, simply move...
