About Araoye

I have always enjoyed math and solving problems. Many students get lost in the language of math. They often see formulas but not what is needed to make them work. I have had extensive experience during my college days at the tutoring center and beyond in tutoring students in different areas of math.

My approach is interactive since it is important for the student to see what he or she knows and how one can build on that knowledge. I ask my students questions to help them recall useful concepts and and other information to solving problems. I also guide my students through the important steps of problem solving - since the journey of problem solving is every bit as important as the destination or solution. I always try to help students see what they know and use it to connect to concepts that they need to solve problems. Through the process, the students are more confident working through problems and gaining mastery. It is my goal to help my students to understand the concepts and gain the skills to answer math problems effectively.

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.

ACT Math

This covers arithmetic, use (and order) of operations, number comparisons, algebra problems, ratios and proportions, geometry problems, computation by substitution of variables, simultaneous equations, geometry (measure of angles and other topics) probability, averages (median, mean, mode), interpretations of histograms, graphs or pie charts.

Algebra 1

Topics include the basics of variables, laws of exponents, linear functions and their properties, linear equations and inequalities, arithmetic sequences, properties of polynomials and quadratic functions, roots and irrational numbers.

Algebra 2

Topics include review of algebraic functions, properties of linear functions, solving of linear equations and inequalities, properties of polynomials and quadratic functions, solution of quadratic equations and equations involving higher order polynomials, rational functions and root functions, complex numbers and their properties.

Calculus

Topics include methods of finding limits, derivatives by first principles, rules of differentiation (focus on various types of functions), curve sketching, word problems involving differentiation (optimization and related rates), antidifferentiation and methods of integration, applications of differentiation (volumes, average value of a function, work, arc length and surface areas in Cartesian and polar co-ordinates,surface areas), power series, and Lagrange multipliers.

Chemistry

Topics include physical and chemical properties of substances, elements and compounds and mixtures, periodic tables, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, chemical kinetics, solubility, redox reactions, acids, bases and salts (pH and indicators), organic chemistry, and nuclear reactions.

Differential Equations

Topics involved include types and order of differential equations, methods of solving first order equations, use of substitution and integrating factors to simplify differential equations to basic forms (separable or exact), methods of solving second or higher order equations (including undetermined coefficient and variation of parameters for non- homogenous equations), use of Laplace transforms to solve differential equations and power series methods. I have been tutoring this subject for about a year.

Geometry

Areas covered include but not limited to: lines and planes, types of angles, shapes in the plane and their classifications, measure of angles, perimeter, areas of plane shapes, relations involving angles (complementary, supplementary etc), congruent and similar triangles, volumes of solid shapes, and circle geometry.

This list will be updated from time to time.

Physics

Topics include scalars and vectors, resolution of vectors, equations of motion, work and energy, conservation of momentum and energy, principles of rotational motion, Newtons law of gravitation, thermal expansivity, gas laws, principles of heat energy, Laws of thermodynamics, simple harmonic motion, etc.

Precalculus

This covers a review of rules of algebra (rules of operations, like terms etc), types of functions, expansion and factoring of polynomials, laws of exponents and logarithms, rational functions and their asymptotes, equations and inequalities involving functions mentioned above. Other topics will be mentioned in the trigonometry section.

Probability

This covers the definition of events, outcome and sample space and methods of counting outcomes, calculation of probability, special cases (mutually exclusive events, independent events), conditional probability, use of probability to calculate mean and standard deviation, and types of probability distributions.

SAT Math

This covers aritmetic, use (and order) of operations, number comparisons, algebra problems, ratios and proportions, geometry problems, computation by substitution of variables, simultaneous equations, geometry (measure of angles and other topics) probability, averages (median, mean, mode), interpretations of histograms, graphs or pie charts.

Trigonometry

This is a review of classification of angles and congruent(similar) triangles, definitions and application of the ratios (sine, cosine, tangent etc.), special angles in the first quadrant and behavior of the ratios in the four quadrants, sine and cosine rules, trig identities and equations involving trig ratios, and solving word problems involving triangles.
