The Table of Metric Conversions is especially important for the students I tutor in chemistry. Below are some tips or important aspects of the table to keep in mind. The table I have included has common conversions
Prefix Symbol Factor
Giga G 10^9
Mega M 10^6
Kilo k 10^3
Base unit _ 10^0 or 1
Centi c 10^-2
Your Retirement Plan could be an IRA, 401K, 403B, SEP, Keogh or other qualified plan. These plans will allow you to either deposit an amount from your income and deduct from taxes at year-end or your employer will deduct from your taxable income before
taxes are applied.
This wealth accumulation program grows tax-deferred and can be invested in many different investment vehicles that satisfy the plan owner. I recommend mutual funds and/or stocks to give the plan minimum risk and growth.
Mutual fund managers work hard to find the companies that will perform the best. They look for companies that are producing products or services classified as timely ideas with these criteria: high-growth serving high-growth markets with strong leadership
positions and companies they feel over the next 12 months have the most upside potential.
First, they try to figure out how big the company's market opportunity is and how...
Here's some information I shared with a teacher friend of mine, frommmm... I'm not sure where, but it applies to a parent to teacher relationship, as well as a parent to tutor relationship, and even tutor to teacher. Oh, and the student might get involved
in there somewhere, too.
Since parent/teacher face to face meetings are getting more and more difficult, for various reasons, here's an idea of a series of questions that was intended for parents to ask, but could be incentive for weekly notes / newsletters for students to take
home to parents to liven up a basic "what are you doing" kind of message. Are there 19 weeks left in the school year? Could this be part of a message on the computer update system now available? I'm just sayin' -- DS
PS Then add a list of classroom materials you need on a day to day basis that parents can help provide. The answer to "What can I do to help?" every time.
Not all mutual funds are alike. There are Index Funds that reflex the stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. Some seek capital appreciation and are known as growth funds. Some seek to provide maximum dividends for their customers
and are known as growth funds. Some seek to provide maximum dividends for their customers and are known as income funds. Then there are those that try to strike a happy medium between growth and income. Generally, mutual funds can be divided into three
classifications according to the types of securities in their portfolios.
Common stocks make up a Common Stock Mutual Fund and may include some bonds and preferred stocks. Because common stocks follow closely the ups and downs of the stock market, they are best suited for investors who can stay in the mutual fund for five years
A second classification is the Balanced Fund. This...
I will post my resume
Stocks and Mutual Funds are the primary investment vehicles for Retirement Plans. Individuals interested in investing in securities may not have the time or mind set to study individual stocks. A mutual fund maybe the answer to a higher return in their
plan for the future. Everyone should understand the basics of the investments in stocks or mutual funds that compose the growth vehicle of your plan.
Thousands of investors pool their money in a mutual fund that will have professional management. These experts do the multiple buying and selling of the stocks and bonds in the mutual fund depending on it's Mission Statement. The buying and selling increases
the fees of these mutual funds. Several research papers have shown that an Index Fund, which tracks a stock Index like a S&P 500 Index have less buying, selling in the fund and lower Portfolio Fees, which help the Index mutual fund out perform many managed

• Just about everyone now claims to be a photographer. Especially with the technology doing the work and software creating the results.
• With that said, this message is intended for both the beginner and customer.
• We have all heard the adage: “You get what you pay for.” But, when it comes to wedding photography, sometimes you don’t get what you pay for. Or, you don’t get enough of what you expect.
• Beginners tend to allow ego to get in the way of learning and development of (true) skills. When compliments stand in the way of practice, the next opportunity can be costly to both the client and the professional who didn’t get the job, because the beginner
• We all have to start somewhere and some, make that most professionals and more experienced photographers either took a class, attended a workshop or had a mentor. I did all three.
• This post comes with great respect for those who are sincere in their goal of becoming a professional, not just...
In a world inundated with technology and information, it is easy to assume that “everyone knows…or should know (by now).” Surprisingly, there are clusters of people who have resisted the movement and the universal urge to belong to a robotic lifestyle,
managing to maintain their bond with “nature.”
There was a time when someone had to teach you how to fish and hunt for your next meal or two. You actually had to make your own weapons or gear, get up before the sun and walk/paddle into the wilderness and fish it out of a stream or ocean with your bare hands,
rod or net, or hunt with bow and arrow, spear, axe, traps or lures in order to survive. If you didn’t learn, you didn’t eat (as well as the rest).
To document these daily rituals, that later became a “sport,” an artist either drew your likeness onto a cave wall, canvass or a photographer had to load film into a camera and “pop” away, in order to immortalize the participants.
The art and business of photography is...
Just wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all students and look forward to working with you in the New Year.
Hello Potential Student,
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN: There are many different methods used to invest in the stock market, but there aren’t any guarantees. The market performs the same, but it is different all the time. The index values go up and come down, trends meander all around.
The market paradox is it will go up until nobody knows when, if it is correcting it will drop until then. You buy leader stocks and they go from first to last, so you buy them and let them run then sell them fast.

Happy Holidays to all
It is great to be on vacation, but you don't want to lose your LEARNING MOMENTUM!
I AM AVAILABLE any day, mornings or afternoons, for tutoring sessions during these holiday days off.
Back in the day, where you wanted to go to college dictated which standardized test you took. Colleges in the midwest generally required the ACT, while those on the coasts wanted the SAT. These days, the score conversions are commonplace enough that most
colleges will accept either one. So how do you choose which one to take? Well, there are a few differences to keep in mind.
Most of the differences between the tests are matters of format. The SAT is comprised of ten sections ranging from 12 to 35 minutes each. The sections alternate between reading comprehension, math, and writing, and the whole test begins with a 25-minute timed
essay. One of the ten sections is an “experimental” section, which is not scored as part of your test and is a chance for the test-makers to try out new ideas on a group of students. The ACT, in contrast, is four 75-minute sections, one for each subject. The
ACT does not include an essay, but it does include a “science” section...
I am currently available to tutor for over the holidays if anyone needs any emergency sessions! I also have new openings for Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning at 4:30pm. I am available on Sundays from 10am-4pm as well. Please email me for
5. When necessary, I use my humor, acting skills, and comedic training to make the sessions more engaging.
4. I turn the tables and make the student/client the teacher/coach: they teach ME how to understand the concept. If they can teach it, then they truly understand it. :)
3. I don't continue to repeat the same thing if the student/client doesn't understand. If the student/client doesn't understand, the problem is often not with the student/client, but with how I am explaining it. Therefore, I always have multiple ways
to explain the same concept. This makes the lessons fun by ensuring the students/clients do not get discouraged.
2. I ask students/clients what would make the sessions more fun, enjoyable, or useful: 9 times out of 10, they know better than me!
1. I smile, enjoy myself, and have fun teaching! You'd be surprised how many tutors, teachers, and coaches don't do...
Dr. Bob suggests that a basic mathematics course be introduced for nurses and medical professionals on a multi-year schedule in well-defined programs with continuous certification as a continuous program in hospitals and certification programs especially

Medication Errors with the Dosing of Insulin: Problems across the Continuum
Pa Patient Saf Advis 2010 Mar;7(1):9-17.
Controlling blood sugars with insulin is essential in the management of hyperglycemia in both diabetic and nondiabetic patients. However, studies have shown that the use of insulin has been associated with more medication errors than any other type or class
of drug. From January 2008 to June 6, 2009, Pennsylvania healthcare facilities submitted 2,685 event reports to the Authority that mentioned medication errors involving the use of insulin products. The most common types of medication error associated with

When dedicated, loyal,caring teachers strive to get their students to reach their learning potential @ the student is willing to stay focused and learn new things that will ultimately enhance their life and character THEN both will have achieved their
purpose! It is equivalent to a light switch being turned on.
