If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I believe you should ENJOY the math you are studying -- at least as much as possible! In addition, I feel my strength as a tutor is working with students who have had an uncomfortable experience in the past or have a bit of anxiety when it comes to math and its complexities. We deal with "test anxiety" in particular. This can be a very real obstacle for a great many people.

I am an experienced middle school, high school, and adult education math teacher (18 years) with loads of experience tutoring on a one-on-one basis, also. I have passed the math portion of the GRE exam with a perfect 800 score! My graduate work is in architecture and design.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for many years to middle and high school students. We have worked on applications and how this relates to things in real life. I realize that Algebra is a big step up from the math many have worked at previously with great success. Now they may be struggling a bit and losing confidence. It's usually quite easily remedied with help!

D=rt so 120 = xt for the first part of the problem.  Therefore, t = 120/x.  Using the increased speed, your new equation becomes 120 = (x + 1)(120/x - 1/2)  because (x + 1) is the new speed and (120/x - 1/2) is the new time.  Using your best algebra skills you...
