About Al

I am currently living in in Fairfield, PA and working part time in a restaurant. I tutored math and science for a year (spring summer, and fall semesters, 2013) at Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) while taking classes in Ornamental Horticulture. I plan to return to HACC this spring or summer for a class in genetics. I also tutored math and science at West Shore Community College in Scottville, MI where I was taking biology, math, physics, computer science, pottery, and photography classes for my own personal interest. (I have a BS in geology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, 1990.) I took Calc 3 and Differential Equations while I was at West Shore and tutored a group of advanced high school kids in Calc 1. I also tutored students with learning disabilities, as well as regular college students in math ranging from basic math to calculus along with some chemistry and biology.

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

At HACC (Harrisburg Area Community College) I tutored students in Basic Math, Beginning Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and College Algebra, as well as calculus and some of the sciences during the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters of 2013.

Biology

I have taken Biology I and II, Local Flora, Zoology, Botany, Microbiology, Anatomy & Physiology I, and Lake Biology at West Shore Community College in Scottville, MI. I also took Anatomy & Physiology II, and Genetics (no lab) at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI. Over the past few years I have enjoyed hiking and identifying trees and wildflowers in my spare time.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is what I used to call Basic Math, and is concerned with things like multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting fractions, lowest common denominators, least common multiples, prime factors, proportions, percentages, some geometry-- all pre algebra stuff. I have tutored it along with Beginning Algebra mainly with college students, some of whom had learning disabilities, but I would also be interested in teaching it to younger students like elementary school kids.

Prealgebra

Pre Algebra is what I used to call Basic Math and is concerned with things like multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting fractions, lowest common denominators, least common multiples, prime factors, proportions, percentages, some geometry-- all stuff you want to know before taking algebra. I have tutored it along with Beginning Algebra mainly with college students, some of whom had learning disabilities.
