About John

I have been teaching for 7 years and I am certified for both Middle and High School. I am Special Education certified as well. I am a firm believer that my students need to demonstrate a basic understanding of any concept that we are working on by doing it by hand and not go to a calculator first. The student needs to think through the problem first and develop a process for problem solving. Learning the foundational concepts and skills are critical before we utilize technology.

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 the bridge that is needed to be able to make the jump to Trig and Pre-Cal. It takes students much further than the previous course, Alg. 1. Algebra 2 takes students through the rest of what is considered Algebra; that is functions and all of the applications involved there in. It also introduces more Trig type of problems involving circles, ellipses and parabolas.

Geometry

Geometry is the most understood of the high school mathematics courses because most rules and facts are not necessarily derived from formulas. There are some hard and fast rules which you cannot get around such degree measure of triangles and circles. To most students, geometry makes more sense than algebra!

Trigonometry

Trig is geometry with a lot more calculations. Much more rigorous detail to memorizing formulas and manipulating identities is a must.
