## Well Planned Program

Jonathan, 12 lessons with PaulPaul used a number of tools to quickly zero in on my son's weaknesses and develop a plan to strengthen those weaknesses while developing additional skills required for the SAT test. He's working one-on-one with my son and he has given great advice on ways to assist him and make the lessons more productive. My son has given positive feedback as to how the lessons are progressing, and I can monitor much of his progress and limitations in the online tools Paul uses. He's easy to communicate with...

Although there are times, when some of us would like to avoid math, math is a necessity.

Math is an integral part of the world around us: in our paychecks, at the supermarket, and it will be an essential part of your workday someday.

In fact, those who can master basic Math concepts have a far greater earning potential than most other areas of study.

So come on aboard, I can show you the way. I have turned math into a fun and successful exercise for middle school, high school and college...

GRE
#### GRE

The GRE will be the next step for your professional development. With Preparation, Organization, and Practice we will ensure our success on the exam. My expertise is in math but I am also proficient in the Verbal and Analytical Writing portions. Let's get together and map out your plan for success.

Statistics

Elementary (K-6th),
#### Elementary (K-6th)

I have extensive knowledge in math but I am well versed in reading and writing through grade 6. My specialty is motivating younger children to work at math until the success becomes contagious. My program for elementary combines math with exercise and sports. I have had success with all levels of students who have participated. I call this program the MRS (Math. Reading. Sports Program.). The summer is a great time to get caught up to or get ahead of grade level.

Elementary Math,
#### Elementary Math

The emphasis on grades through 2nd is add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers. Speed will be a factor in mastery of 1 and 2 column whole numbers. Mastery is considered 95% accuracy with the required speed.
Grades 3 - 5 the emphasis will be on catching up to those skills and mastering new skills that include fractions, decimals, and the order of operations. Mastery is considered 95%.

Study Skills

My name is Paul M. I graduated from college in 3 years with a double major in Math and Psychology. I was a Magna Cum Laude graduate as an undergrad while playing basketball for an NCAA National Champion. My oldest son graduated in the top 1% of his class while being a 4 year starter in basketball at the varsity level. He is on track to have his undergraduate degree in 3 years and his Master's in 4. I have the ability to achieve and the knowledge to teach others how to learn.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Factoring is the main emphasis after Prealgebra concerns. Prerequisites include solving 1 and 2 step linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; the Order of Operations.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Prerequisites include factoring; solving 1 and 2 step linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; the order of operations.
Algebra 2 success requires the mastery of solving quadratics by 3 methods: factoring, complete the square, and the quadratic formula
The most difficult area for students is Conic Sections and this is where the knowledge of solving quadratics by factoring and completing the square becomes most important. Mastery of radicals and complex numbers is the final step to Algebra success and successful SAT preparation

Calculus,
#### Calculus

The topics that most students need help on are LHopitals, Limits, and The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. I will make those subjects simpler so that they can progress to the Derivatives and Integrals of advanced calculus.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

Plane Euclidean Geometry is best described as a following directions course. If you don't understand the directions, ask the question again and again until you understand the direction. Euclidean Geometry is also a logic course that forces one to think logically. The emphasis will be on understanding the logic components of geometry and applying the theorems/postulates/corollaries to real world problems.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

Prealgebra concerns include the quick and accurate application of arithmetic to real numbers. Topics for Prealgebra include Solving 1 and 2 Step Linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; The Order of Operations.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

The most difficult area for students is Graphing Trig Functions and the unit circle is the final step to Algebra success and successful SAT preparation.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

My SAT preparation success is derived from three parts. Preparation is the first part. This includes but is not limited to showing up on time. Organization is the next part, without the organizational skills needed to prepare for the test makes it very challenging for a student to score their best. Last is practice. I have a slew of remedies and quick follow up procedures that will help improve the veracity and the tenacity of the practice.

ACT Math,
#### ACT Math

I have a course for a student who just wants test taking tips and that is 3 weeks at 3 times per week. This is for the student who needs a little math review and more on standardized test taking skills review.
For the student who needs more math review I have a 6 - 12 week program at 3 times per week. The total time each week should be 3 hours per week. As the testing deadline approaches we will meet less but each meeting will be for a longer duration.

Discrete Math,
#### Discrete Math

Discrete Math is the study of math concepts that apply to non continuous functions. I have taught the entire course at school and I have taught all of the Discrete Math Courses separately for more than 10 years.
The following are the topics most often found in Discrete Math Text Books: Set theory, Graph theory, Probability, Number theory, Algebra, Calculus of finite differences, discrete calculus or discrete analysis, Geometry, Topology, Game theory, decision theory, utility theory, and social choice theory.
With all of the interesting topics this is one the more "fun" math courses.

Finite Math,
#### Finite Math

Finite math is very similar to Math modelling which is the act of creating functions or equations that describe a given application or situation. Finite Math also has Matrix Algebra, Probability, Statistics, and logic. I have taught or tutored these disciplines for 15 years. I am expert in all of these areas and look forward to tutoring students in these math topics.

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor that really sets you up for success!

He is very knowledgeable on the ASVAB and has been incredible in helping me with my math skills so far. I really enjoy the fact that he gives you a short amount of time to answer a given amount of questions because when it comes to the test, I know I won't feel stressed. I already feel more confident and comfortable with my upcoming ASVAB test date.
