I am a recently retired teacher with 38 years of experience in teaching mathematics and physics. I have taught all mathematics courses in high school including AP Calculus and AP Statistics. I have also taught at community colleges as well as universities. I have served on the State of Michigan Mathematics High School Content Expectations

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 I is not only a theoretical tool for analyzing and describing mathematical relationships, it is also a powerful tool for the mathematical modeling and solving of real-world problems. These problems can be found all around us: the workplace, the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

It is expected that students entering Algebra are able to recognize and solve mathematical and real-world problems involving linear relationships and to make sense of and move fluently among the graphic, numeric, symbolic, and verbal representations of these patterns. Algebra builds on this increasingly generalized approach to the study of functions and representations by broadening the study of linear relationships to include; systems of equations with three unknowns, formalized function notation, and the development of bivariate data analysis topics such as linear regression and correlation. In addition, their knowledge of exponential and quadratic function families is extended and deepened with the inclusion of topics such as, rules of exponentiation (including rational exponents), and use of standard and vertex forms for quadratic equations. Students will also develop their knowledge of power (including roots, cubics, and quartics) and polynomial patterns of change and the applications they model.

I have taught Algebra 1 and 2 for 40 years.

The goal of Algebra II is to build upon the concepts taught in Algebra I and Geometry while adding new concepts to the studentsâ€™ repertoire of mathematics. In Algebra I, students studied the concept of functions in various forms such as linear, quadratic, polynomial, and exponential. In Algebra II, students continue the study of exponential and logarithmic functions and further enlarge their catalog of function families. The topic of conic sections fuses algebra with geometry. Students will also extend their knowledge of sequences and iteration as well as univariate statistical applications. It is also the goal of this model to help students see the connections in the mathematics that they have already learned.

I have taught Algebra II for over 40 years.

The study of Geometry offers students the opportunity to develop skill in reasoning and formal proof. Additionally, it helps students to describe, analyze and recognize the underlying beauty in the structures that compose our World. Geometric thinking is a powerful tool for understanding and solving both mathematically beyond algebra, including analytical and spatial reasoning. Students will use techniques of ancient mathematicians as well as calculator and computer techniques for solving problems.

I have taught geometry for over 40 years in High School and College and have written test question for the SAT.

Prealgebra is not only a theoretical tool for analyzing and describing mathematical relationships, it is also a powerful tool for the mathematical modeling and solving of real-world problems. These problems can be found all around us: the workplace, the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
