Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Choose me as your Algebra tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Algebra 1 and Intermediate Algebra are important milestones in a student's development. The abstract nature of this material can be burdensome for many; however, with sufficient training WE CAN overcome these technical difficulties. My approach to teaching these ideas is to keep it simple, and use relevant examples that apply to daily life.

When am I ever going to use this?

Algebra is widespread!

It is an incredibly powerful idea that is marvelous in its applications and brilliant in its theory. Scientists use algebra to describe cell growth, human behavior, as well as electrical circuits. Engineers use it to construct jet airplanes, bridges, and smartphones.

Algebra is required to graduate from high school, college, and to enlist in the military. It appears on many standardized tests including SAT, ACT, GED, ASVAB, GMAT, and GRE. Nursing, computer programming, and aviation are just some of the careers that require an understanding in algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2, and College Algebra are some of my popular subjects to tutor. Additionally, I have completed graduate coursework in Modern Abstract/Applied Algebra. So, I understand the roots of algebra, as well as the advanced discipline it is today.

The key to success in all of these courses is CONSISTENT effort. I provide consistency to my students by keeping them organized and motivated. As with other subjects, my approach to algebra is to keep it simple and accessible.

When am I ever going to use this?

A solid foundation in algebra can lead to success in more advanced disciplines like, calculus, physics, engineering and computer programming.

In fact, techniques from linear algebra are used to manipulate, categorize, compress, and encrypt/decrypt information on the internet. This very sentence would not be able to reach you if we weren't using algebra!

Calculus

Relating new mathematical ideas to my students' hobbies is invaluable when it comes to making progress with confusing material. Calculus, more so than algebra or geometry, lends itself to these comparisons. In calculus, we often discuss changes and amounts. The change in velocity of your car as you merge onto an exit ramp, and the amount social media users ten years from now are just some ideas we could explore using our calculus skills.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

Calculus is used to engineer cars, airplanes, and spacecrafts. It is used to model scientific theories ranging from electrodynamics to deep ecology. Insurance companies, hire mathematicians who use calculus to analyze probabilities, and determine premiums for customers.

GED

Choose me as your GED tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

The General Educational Development test, or GED, is a bridge to opportunity. Passing this test opens doors in business, academics, and in life. (Ask about GED discounts.)

To me, tests are like checkpoints. We see them coming, and can prepare for the encounter. It would be my pleasure to help you prepare for the GED, so that you are confident when reaching the checkpoint.

The GED test our knowledge of mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing. I am able to provide you with instruction for all of these subjects. Both test strategies, and subject specific content are incorporated into lessons. We will focus on material that is covered on the the GED test.

Geometry

Geometry has impacted our lives in so many ways wonderful ways. From old sailing maps to modern GPS, from MRI's to fashion magazines, geometry and its many benefits make our lives easier and more fun!

Literally, Earth measure, geometry has been synonymous with education and power since the beginning of recorded history. The ideas concerning geometry being taught in high schools around the world today were developed out of necessity. Our ancestors needed to solve practical problems like dividing parcels of land for a new invention: agriculture. Governments were interested in areas of land for taxation purposes. In fact, the Egyptians even gave rebates to farmers when the Nile flooded farmland.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

Are you using a mobile device? If so, chances are it is using ideas involving elliptical curves to secure your personal banking information every time you make an e-commerce transaction online. Some of the original work was done by a teenage girl for her local science fair less than thirty years ago!

Precalculus

Choose me as your Pre-Calculus tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Pre-Calculus is a steppingstone to more sophisticated mathematics. It previews a myriad of concepts which range from matrix algebra, to limits, and from trigonometry to conic sections.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

We use ideas from Pre-Calculus when studying advanced theories, as well as when studying science and engineering. For example, trigonometry is used to analyze vectors like velocity and force which are fundamental concepts from physics. These ideas together with some from conic sections are used investigate celestial mechanics: the motion of worlds.

SAT Math

As a perfect scorer, professional tutor, and trained mathematician, I am your perfect partner for success on the SAT. Utilizing my database of practice tests, we can examine questions developed by SAT test writers. During our lessons, I will enable you by providing options, easy wins, and organization.

Send me a message if you have any questions, or would like to schedule a lesson.

I want you to actualize your potential!

Trigonometry

Choose me as your trigonometry tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Although many ideas covered in trigonometry are complicated, they can be understood in terms of more fundamental ideas. I can clarify how the fundamental identities lead to advanced identities, when, and how to use them.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

In addition to mathematical theory, application plays a large role in trigonometry. This course is needed for professional careers including medicine, engineering, surveying, and aviation.
