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.

My Algebra I course consists of a review of Commutative and Associative Properties, Order of Operations and Absolute values; solve for unknown with one variable, distributive property and number lines and Cartesian coordinates; graphing a line, slope intercept formula, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, graphing and solving inequalities; solving simultaneous equations, exponents, add and subtract polynomials, factor polynomials and trinomials, square roots and dividing polynomials, difference of two squares; solving equations using all the above techniques, scientific notation, metric conversions, bases other than ten, graphing circles and ellipse, parabola and hyperbola.
