As a classroom teacher, I introduce a lot of hands-on activities to my students. I truly believe that students can have fun while they are learning mathematics! I use online resources as well. I constantly search for sites that are interactive and engaging for students. I have taught Math 7 and 8, Pre-Algebra and/or Algebra I for the last 18 years. I have also taught English 6, Social Studies, and Civics in the Middle School setting.

I have had the pleasure of teaching and tutoring Consumer Math, Algebra II, Geometry, and College Calculus, College English and College Writing.

I was an instructor for a Summer School Community Reading Camp and Math Lab. I have been a Homebound Instructor.

My tutoring has also been expanded to evening sessions for a community church for 2nd – 8th grades in all subject areas.

Approved subjects

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 ACT Math test covers Arithmetic, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate and Plane Geometry, as well as Trigonometry. I am able to help with the preparation of this test as I have been able to help students with college prep mathematics tests in the general.

I have taught Algebra 1 for the last 4 years. My most recent success rate was the 2011-2012 school year. Although the state of Virginia implemented new SOL objectives, my students had a 90% pass rate!

I haven't had much experience teaching Algebra 2, but I am very knowledgable with the content. (I received a perfect score on the WyzAnt test to be certified in this subject for tutoring)

I have had training in Microsoft PowerPoint. I am very knowledgeable in the applications. I know how to insert pictures, sound, and animations. I have created many presentations over the years using this software.

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word on a daily basis. I create flyers, brochures, and many other forms of advertisements using this software.

To distribute means "to share; to pass out to others". So, if you want to distribute, you have to share the number on the outside of the parentheses with EACH number on the inside. So, you must multiply. 5 times a   as well as    5 times 2              ...

Since each section is separated by a plus sign, all you need to do is line up your like terms and add their coefficients... 2x^2 - 5x - 1 3x^2 - 7x + 3 -5x^2 + x + 1 --------------- Combine: (2 + 3 - 5) = 0 Combine: (-5 -7 + 1) = -11 Combine: ( -1 + 3 + 1) = 3 Final Answer:...
