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 1

This course is an exploration of using variables and demonstrating different models of equations with their descriptions and explanations of why they are drawn a certain way. Several ways we can explore these models is using a graphing calculator and other manipulates. Real world problems present themselves as perfect examples of algebraic models that we can model and solve with the tools we learn throughout the course of study!

Algebra 2

This course is an exploration of using variables and demonstrating different models of equations with their descriptions and explanations of why they are drawn a certain way. Several ways we can explore these models is using a graphing calculator and other manipulates. Real world problems present themselves as perfect examples of algebraic models that we can model and solve with the tools we learn throughout the course of study!

Computer Programming

Computer programming is the process of writing instructions for a computer to follow to perform a task that solves a problem. These problems can range from simple tasks such as printing a receipt to calculating taxes for the 1040A IRS form. I've taught programming skills using languages such as QBASIC, C++, Visual Basic, and Java for about 14 years.

Computer Science

I've used different computer languages to teach the different skills for computer science: Pascal, C++, Visual Basic.net, QBASIC, and Java. Computer Science is the exploration of problem solving using the computer as the tool to solve the problem. It is the science of computing - data entry, studying algorithms, input styles, how the computer works, and other aspects of the computer.

Geometry

Geometry is a great subject that lets us get a real "hand's on" approach to proving some of math's greatest "laws" and developing a sense of reasoning when defending proofs. Some proofs can be explored via algebra while others can be explored solely on geometric properties and other explanations we learn as we explore each part of the world of geometry. Be ready to construct in real life!

Java

Java is an exciting programming language that is sometimes described as a 4th level language because it is an object-oriented language. We can build programs that incorporate objects that actually represent what we want them to be and behave like the objects should behave. If we want to have a deck of cards, then we would want a card object that has a value and suit. The deck object would then create 52 cards: value 1-13, suit 1-4. The way we create it can be in a matrix, array list, map, or other object. That is what makes Java exciting -- the programmer can make it as easy or difficult as he is able to make it!

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel is an exciting piece of software that allows for users to enter mathematical data and create visual charts and graphs, summaries, and other useful pieces of information depending on the data. I've personally used the software to keep track of employee wages for my parent's diner so that each quarter we didn't have to break out a calculator to find totals for each employee. The uses are almost limitless for this product!

Pascal

Pascal is a programming language that is primarily used as a first language to introduce method programming. I have taught Pascal and enjoyed the simplicity of the language with the words like write and writeline, if, if...then, etc.

Prealgebra

This course is an early study of how numbers behave together and the different rules that govern over solving equations. We'll investigate beginning algebra with an introduction to variables and solving for unknown values, substituting values into variables to find new values, and creating charts and graphs from data given.

Visual Basic

I have taught myself Visual Basic in order to teach it. I have taught it for the past 12 years and each year I have discovered that it is a wonderfully powerful programming language that is easy to learn and use.
