Hello!

I would like to begin by saying thank you for visiting my profile. I enjoy being part of a community that is committed to helping people reach their academic goals. As our society advances, we are often called upon to know more and do more. This requires us to become better students and teachers. I, like others believe that teaching and learning rely on one another and it is ultimately our goal to improve our performance in both areas. This idea helps keep me motivated in my quest to be the best teacher/student that I can be.

I began to develop the idea of being a teacher while overcoming my own challenges in pursuing an education. I have always felt that If I was familiar with an idea or concept, I could relate this to someone else in a useful way. My creative nature and my desire to help others ultimately led to this goal. I am currently finishing a bachelor's degree in Communications with a focus on Technology. Originally pursuing a teaching degree, I changed my major in an effort to prepare myself for the increasing influence of technology in the classroom. In addition, my eventual goal is to design educational software and/or web applications that will add to the improvements being made with the way that we teach and learn. I recently learned that I could continue my certification and learn the additional skills I need without completely altering my list of required classes. As I near the end of my requirements, I continue to look for opportunities to cultivate my craft and develop meaningful connections with those that need help.

I know that I am among good company. There are many talented educators within this community. This means that my subject knowledge and passion for teaching are not unique qualities (and they certainly shouldn't be). Rather than offer a detailed list of my positive qualities, I will share with you a couple of qualities that you might appreciate and provide some insight into our learning sessions.

The first quality that I have that is very important is that I have good c

Calculus,

Calculus

The first semester of Calculus, depending on your instructor and text usually focuses on two fundamental concepts: Differentiation and Integration. Once one is familiar with the limits and their properties, he or she will begin using other techniques such as the chain rule and implicit differentiation to find the derivative. These become the skill sets that are necessary to do problems with related rates, finding extrema (maxs and mins) on particular intervals, and to be able to determine how graphs of functions behave. This is helpful in graphing functions that are non-linear. With Integration, it is pretty much the same format for instruction. The process of a limit is applied to sums, and this in turn yields basic rules for integration and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. This class ties together and reviews a lot of concepts and ideas that are presented in Algebra 1 and 2 and Trigonometry. I can help with the skills sets that are necessary in this class and also help review the skills and fundamental ideas that are prerequisites to taking this course.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

This class is often structured as an advanced algebra class (algebra 2)combined with trigonometry. The goal of this class, as the name suggests is to prepare the student for the work that they will have to do in calculus. See description for algebra 2 and trigonometry.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Some schools/classes are structured so that this class is either taken by itself, or in combination with college level algebra. If the class is taken by itself, it is the class that one takes right before moving into calculus. Trigonometry is mainly a geometry class that it focused on triangles and circles. Here we learn the six trigonometric functions and how they relate to the Cartesian Coordinate system.You will also learn how to solve right triangles and how to convert from degree measure to radian measure which allows you to solve a multitude of problems and give real world answers. You will also learn the basic graphs of trig functions so that you can be able to graph them yourself, recognize them when you see them, and be able to write equations for them. Trigonometry also deals with a lot of identities, formulas that can be used to generate new pieces of information. You will learn how to prove identities and how to use formulas (sum and difference, double-angle, half-angle etc.) to simplify expressions involving trig functions. This will allow you to solve trigonometric equations in a similar manner as you did with linear equations.

Asvab tutor

He is teaching me how to do math a lot quicker and also understand my the questions that they are asking me. And also teaching me my multiplications and stick them in my head.

Good Communicator

Jason inquired about the students' current lessons in math and was thoroughly prepared for the first meeting. His communication style was relative to the age of the student and he found a way to connect with the student. In a fairly short amount of time, Jason discovered how the students' viewed math and how to help them reach their goals. He followed up via phone with a strategy to use moving forward.
