I am passionate about giving high school and college students the skills they need to grow "from good to great" in mathematics. For seven years, I have been doing this in the Buckley/Bonney Lake area where I live and in the White River School District where I am fairly well known. Although I do not hold a teaching certificate (working on that), I am a certified Substitute teacher, I taught Algebra 2 at Choice HS, and I was an AVID tutor for three years at White River HS and Glacier MS. I am also the administrator and a volunteer tutor for a tutoring group in Buckley.

If you got high C's or solid B's in math and now you're mystified by some of the new stuff in calculus and precalculus, or if you're baffled by how much algebra and geometry you forgot during the summer (or during those years when you didn't take any math courses at all), then I'm your man. I am great at "demystifying" calculus and those awful words like "limits" and "logarithms" and "complete the square".

Math can be fun and easy, and I will try to make it that way for you.

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.

Word Problem (answer)

Simple problem.   The distance Jessica travels (falls) under the influence of gravity for "t" seconds is:    16 t^2 (the formula is s = 1/2 g t^2 where g=32 (the acceleration of gravity)).   The bungee cord begins to stretch after Jessica has fallen...

The Produce Rule is for Calculus (taking derivatives), but the problem stated isn't Calculus.   If this is a simple arithmetic (multiplication) problem, then 84 x 56 x 84 can be done on a calculator:      84 x 56 = 4,707. Then 4,704 x 84 = 395,136.  

Hi George, From the information given in your question, Newton is the way to go on this.   Near the surface of the Earth, the acceleration due to gravity is ≈ 9.8 m/s2 (that's 9.8 meters per second per second). If you drop an apple from an airplane, skyscraper, or roof of your...

Great tutor! — Bob has helped my son tremendously! My son is in AP Calculus and has been struggling since the first day of school. Bob has helped him go from an F to a B- in just a few weeks. Bob really explains and teaches well. My son can understand what the rules mean and how to apply them correctly! If it is not a tutoring day and he needs help, Bob is very willing to help him. It has given my son the confid ...
