## Very good Algebra tutor

Shundrawn, 36 lessons with DeborahMs. Deborah is very knowledgeable in her subjects. She was able to explain difficult concepts and provide tools to help our child succeed. She was very patient with our young son who was taking a higher level course. She is also very flexible with scheduling when important exams were coming up. We recommend her services.

Hello students and parents:

My name is Deborah P., and I have over ten years of experience teaching mathematics in secondary education, seven of which include teaching all levels of Algebra with traditional and inquiry-based curriculum. In addition, I have instructed students in middle school mathematics through Pre-calculus. Currently, I tutor middle school and high school mathematics. I am looking forward to assisting your student and helping them to achieve their fullest potential...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have over ten years of experience teaching mathematics in secondary education, seven of which include teaching all levels of Algebra with traditional and inquiry-based curriculum. My expertise and knowledge includes basic algebraic operations such as order of operations, evaluating expressions, simplifying and expanding the distributive property.
I really enjoy explaining how to solve one-step and two-step equations to students in middle or high school. In additon, I am able to help students develop logical and critical thinking skills to solve simple and challenging word problems.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I bring over ten years of teaching mathematics in secondary education; four of which include teaching College Prep Algebra and Advanced Algebra. My expertise includes solving systems of equations and inequalities, matrices and determinants. In addition, I have helped students to gain knowledge and understanding of exponential and logarithmic functions, quadratic and polynomial functions, and trigonometric functions. My goal is to build upon the algebraic and geometric skills learned in previous courses so your student can use prior knowledge to gain new knowledge about more functions.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

My experience with tutoring Pre-algebra has included helping students to master the arithmetic of fractions: adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators, multiplying and dividing fractions. Also the arithmetic of decimals: adding, subtracting and multiplying and dividing decimals
Identifying and generating equivalent forms of rational numbers including whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
Using exponents to represent whole numbers,and exponential and scientific notation
In addition, I will reinforce the algebraic order of operation and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties to evaluate expressions. Also evaluating simple algebraic expressions with one variable.
Ratios to describe to proportional situations and other concepts will be reinforced as needed.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

I bring over ten years of teaching mathematics in secondary education; five of which include teaching and tutoring Precalculus. My expertise involves helping students to connect concepts learned in Algebra 2 and build a bridge to what they are learning in Precalculus. In addition, I help students to gain knowledge and improve understanding of exponential and logarithmic functions, quadratic and polynomial functions, and trigonometric functions, graphs and equations. My goal is to build upon the algebraic and geometric skills learned in previous courses so your student can use prior knowledge to gain new knowledge about more functions.
