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 1

Fundamental operations on numbers, polynomials, and rational expressions; factoring, linear equations, and inequalities.

Algebra 2

Exponents, radicals, logarithms, systems of linear equations, complex numbers, quadratic equations.

Basketball

I will teach fundamentals in dribbling, shooting, passing, and conditioning, increased active thinking, active vision. Lessons are available for $10/hour. I have attended several basketball training camps, and I have two years of high school basketball experience on a team as well as continued training in the area.

Calculus

Introduction to the concepts of numerical, graphical, symbolic differentiation, techniques of integration, applications of the integral, an introduction to solutions of differential equations, infinite sequences, infinite series representations of functions, vectors, the geometry of three-dimensional space, vector valued functions, partial derivatives, multiple integration, and vector calculus.

Discrete Math

Review of set algebra, relations and functions, permutations, propositional logic, proof techniques, introduction to graph theory, infinite sets, and applications to computer science. I took this course at San Francisco State University and received an A in it. I have also tutored this course for my previous employer on SFSU campus. Also, I have taken more advanced versions of this class, namely, Exploration and Proofs, and Real Analysis. These two courses go much deeper into proof techniques.

GRE

Emphasis on quantitative section of GRE. Includes Geometry, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 subject matter, as well as strategies to use for quick analysis of a problem.

Guitar

I will teach all major, minor chords, and more available upon request (such as Dominant 7th, etc). I will also cover tabs, hand positioning, songs are included in the tutorials. Popular songs or songs appealing to the student are utilized to encourage learning habits and desire. I am a self-taught guitarist, and I motivated myself to learn by focusing my (high school) senior project on how to learn to play guitar and the different styles involved. I have over five years of experience in playing guitar. I have experience with both acoustic and electric guitars.

Piano

Course covers major/minor scales, sight reading, playing by ear, and the circle of fifths. Popular songs or songs appealing to the tutee are utilized to encourage learning habits and desire. I have over 12 years of experience playing guitar. My father has a Ph.D. in music composition, and taught me how to play starting when I was 10. I have since taken a piano class in high school, as well as a music fundamentals course in college. These classes covered the above listed subject matter, as well as the rudimentary knowledge I learned from the piano lessons I took.

Prealgebra

Concept of numbers and how they are manipulated, managed, and represented on the xy-coordinate system

Precalculus

Algebra of polynomial and transcendental functions, the trigonometric functions and their applications, conic sections, and other topics necessary for success in calculus.

Probability

Combinatorial analysis used in computing probabilities, the axioms of probability, conditional probability and independence of events; discrete and continuous random variables; joint, marginal, and conditional densities, moment generating function; laws of large numbers; binomial, Poisson, gamma, univariate, and bivariate normal distributions.

Great tutor! — I had my first tutoring session with Schuyler today. I must say that I am thrilled to be learning this kind of stuff with someone who is so patient!
