About Sam

Hello, I’m Sam and I've been a math tutor/teacher since 1998. I work with algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

When working with students, if there is an easier way, I will inform them. This is how I keep their attention, and gain their respect. Example: When working with geometry, and coming across a right triangle, the first thing I would do is to be sure it is labeled correctly. I will then give the students two major trigonometric formulas: a^2+b^2=c^2, and a/sin?=b/sin?=c/sin? (or just c, because the sin of a right angle=1). Later I will inform them of different ways to write the formulas. Another set of words I will say is “Break it down.”

The above question marks are to be the Greek Letter: alpha, beta and gamma.

Sincerely,
Sam

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 2

Algebra 2 is working with formulas, parenthesis and brackets. Powers and roots are also in use. Diagrams are used for formulas to show patterns.

I recomend alg 1+2 to be taken before geometry.

Discrete Math

My major was mechanical engineering. And due to my coursework, I have several books with formulas from typical shapes to horse-power. I teach math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, metrics. How about the weight of water which is 62.4lbs/cu ft.= 7.48 gallons. 1gal=8.34lbs--the cubic measure of a sphere is 4*r^3(pi/3).

Geometry

I've been a math tutor since 1998. When I work with the students, if there's an easier way, I'll inform them. This is how I gain their respect. I teach algebra, geometry and trigonometry. I will also get into SI (metrics).

When working with geometry and/or trigonometry, the first formulas I want them to remember are: a^2+b^2=c^2; for rt triangles; and a/sina=b/sinß=c/sin?; for all triangles.

I've been working with numbers since I was a teenager. When I was putting myself through school; I was working in a warehouse. I would do the math in my head before somebody else could punch it into a calculator. I've got the ability, now I need to pass-it-on.

1st tutoring lesson

My son thought that Sam did a great job considering that this is probably not the tutoring position for him. He really liked even though he wasn't really able to help all that much, he gave it a great effort and my son did get something out of the lesson. He made my son feel at ease and that says a lot for a tutor. Thank you Sam.
