how to prepare a student for that particular test. Taken courses in Medical Math
Have also taken courses in Medical Math
•When no courses are available, I follow the recommendations for the ASVAB, HiSET (Missouri's new high school equivalency test),HESI, PTCB, and TEAS

Tutoring allows me to individualize my teaching. I become aware of the student’s learning needs and learning style, and then I adapt my methods to fit the student. Because I am an experienced teacher, I am able to explain concepts simply and provide extra work for practice and reinforcement. I provide worksheets for extra practice in all the subjects.

Students say I am friendly, low-key, encouraging, practical, and well organized.

I love tutoring and helping people.

ACT English

The ACT English test covers the same grammar, punctuation and rhetorical skills on every test. After determining exactly what English skills the student needs, I provide instruction and practice. My ACT tutoring methods, based on many years of tutoring and lots of research, are similar for all four subjects tested. I can easily summarize my methods in two words: review and practice. Most students need review in one or more of the four subjects, but all need help with test practice. I only use real ACT tests so the student gets used to the type and wording of each question. The ACT asks the same information on all of its tests and by taking many tests, the student becomes very familiar and thus comfortable with the questions. This relieves much of the anxiety of taking the actual test.

SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

The SAT Reading Test is divided into 3 sections, separated by other parts of the test: 24 multiple-choice questions, 25 minutes 24 multiple-choice questions, 25 minutes 19 multiple-choice questions, 20 minutes Forty-eight of the 67 multiple-choice questions test reading comprehension. You are given reading passages followed by multiple-choice questions. The questions are similar to those on the ACT Reading Test but include many more inference types. The other 19 multiple-choice questions are called sentence completion questions. These test your vocabulary and ability to understand complex sentences. My SAT Reading Test prep includes practice and review in the topics necessary for you to do well. Again, practice tests are given for you to take.
SAT Writing

SAT Writing

The SAT Writing Test has three components: Essay section, 25 minutes; you are required to write an essay on a topic given to you. 1st Writing section, 35 multiple-choice questions, 25 minutes; 2nd Writing section, 14 multiple-choice questions, 10 minutes. The Essay is graded on how well you express and develop your views, show critical thinking, organize your thoughts, use a variety of sentences, and use punctuation, grammar and vocabulary correctly. The 49 multiple-choice questions include sentence corrections, identifying errors in sentences, and improving paragraphs. My SAT Writing Test includes practice and review of the areas mentioned above and taking practice SAT tests.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have experience in teaching and tutoring high school and college algebra. I can teach math concepts simply and clearly, and in a way that helps the students become more comfortable and confident in math.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Both Algebra 2 and College Algebra cover most of the same topics and sometimes to the same depth depending on the high school or college. I have the qualifications along with teaching and tutoring experience in both subjects to be able to effectively help you.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have a MA in Chemistry from the University of South Dakota. Following graduation, I worked as a research chemist for 3M in St. Paul, Minnesota; moved back to South Dakota, then Missouri, where I taught high school chemistry for many years in both states.
Geometry,

Geometry

Some students like it, others dislike it; whatever the emotion, geometry is usually required in high school and necessary to know to do well on college-prep tests and the ASVAB (military entrance test). I have taught Geometry at the high school level and now teach and review it often when tutoring.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

When I helped my grandson with his middle-school math, I knew how important it was for him to have a solid foundation in the pre-algebra he was studying. I am certified to teach pre-algebra through Algebra 2 and qualified to teach College Algebra. I have years of tutoring experience in upper level Algebra and have found that the misunderstandings and errors high school and college students make is due to their poor foundation in pre-Algebra.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

When I worked toward my M.A. in Chemistry, I had to take all the Calculus courses plus Differential Equations. Prerequisite to those courses were Trigonometry, Advanced Algebra, and pre-Calculus. There is an overlap between topics in College Algebra and pre-Calculus. Thus, I have the course background plus experience in teaching College Algebra to enable me to become a tutor in this subject.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

The SAT Math Test is divided into 3 sections, separated by other non-math parts of the Test: 18 problems, 25 minutes; 20 problems, 25 minutes; and 16 problems; 20 minutes. There are a total of 44 multiple-choice questions and 10 student-produced response questions. The math sections of the SAT test cover mostly what the ACT test includes: algebra, geometry, statistics, but not trigonometry, absolute values, or some other areas. SAT Math Test prep includes review, strategies, taking practice tests, and even learning how to guess. Although a penalty of ¼ point is taken off for each incorrect answer, it is sometimes wise to make an educated guess.

Fortunately, a student can do well on the ACT Science Test without ever taking a science course. A student can answer the questions correctly by knowing how to interpret the tables, graphs, and charts provided.

Physical Science

I was referred to as the Physical Science "Queen" when I taught this subject in high school because I took the course from a "lecture" course to a laboratory-based course. One reason why I loved teaching it is because ninth-graders had to take it and I enjoyed teaching that age group.

I assign homework to reinforce what takes place during tutoring. As I provide review in all the subjects, I emphasize test-taking skills such as short cuts and time management. Finally, I give many practice ASVAB tests. By the time the student is ready to take the actual ASVAB, he/she is very comfortable and confident with all the tests.
