When I am doing math with students I often find using the text tool the most efficient way of quickly typing a math problem. The equation editor is awesome but can be overkill, think: a simple inequality.   x + 37 ≥ 45   I printed this list so I can make symbols like ≥ and ≈ easily. I hope this link helps others.   To use: click the text tool and add regular keyboard symbols. When you want to add a mathematical symbol (make sure num lock is on) hold the Alt key on the left side of your keyboard and while still holding Alt use the numbers on the NUMERICAL KEYBOARD (the numbers across the top of your keyboard won't work) that correspond to the symbol you want to insert. Note some begin with 0 and some do not. Alt 0247 ÷ and Alt 247 ≈ give totally different results. Enjoy!   Alt Codes for Basic Operators Alt 0215 × Multiplication Sign Alt 0247 ÷ Obelus / Division Sign Alt 37 % Percentage Sign Alt 0137... read more

My tutoring is geared to delivering the best quality work. I've done plenty of tutoring for multiple students--2, 3, 4 at a time. After that it blends into the characteristics of teaching. Generally speaking, you can either go fully customized 1:1 or alternate focus with the extra students. If you alternate, it's similar to having separate sessions. If there are just two students the same age and largely compatible, you get about 80% of the benefits of tutoring. Rarely I have two students who can't function without each other and then they get more benefits than they would with 1:1. When my customer fully understands that they might get more benefits but most likely less, then I don't mind tutoring two for the exact same price as one. (But no discount from my standard price for one). Undoubtedly parents have a reason for wanting simultaneous tutoring and I don't question that. I still do everything to customize the experience as much as possible and since this is more difficult... read more

1. Students are asked to give notice of cancellation at least 24 hours in advance of their scheduled time slot. Last-minute cancellations and no-shows will result in a cancellation fee equal to the cost of the missed lesson. If proper notice is not received, the student will be charged and forfeit their lesson. Exceptions can be made in cases of emergency.   2. If proper notice of a cancellation is provided, a make-up lesson can be scheduled. All missed lessons must be made up within 30 days. Make-up lessons are dependent on my schedule and availability and are up to the student to schedule. If missed lessons are not made up within 30 days, the student will be charged for the missed lessons. 3. I expect students to show up consistently for their lessons. Frequent cancellations will be evaluated on an individual basis. Depending on the reasons and circumstances, students may lose their spot due to frequent cancellations. 4. If a student misses a lesson... read more

Hello! To those reading, you have likely shown interest in lessons with me, reached out to me, or otherwise gotten in contact with me. Or, you're being proactive and have looked into me and my profile further, which I highly appreciate! Whichever way you've ended up at this post, welcome, and I aim to try and answer the question of whether or not I would make an effective tutor for you, or whoever you are reaching out to me on the behalf of.

Hello! If you are reading this, it’s likely because I have sent you the link to this blog before scheduling a lesson with you. I enjoy tutoring students and teaching them what I know about computer science and cybersecurity, but I value the time I spend teaching, just as you value the time you spend learning. As such, I have implemented the following policies to facilitate mutual respect for each other’s time. These policies may be updated over time. If you are a returning student, I generally will not resend you the link to this blog unless I have made changes, as it is implied that you have been previously informed of my existing policies.   COVID-19 Policy: The ongoing pandemic has pushed most learning online, including tutoring. I am still willing to offer in-person tutoring to students in the Washington, DC Metro area on a case by case basis. During any in-person lessons, please wear a mask at all times. Do not schedule an in-person lesson with me if you have tested... read more

I see a number of tutor requests similar to this plea for help. I never answer them, or offer to help. A student may well ask, but why? What's wrong with my asking for last-minute help. I'm desperate. And that's precisely the problem. You are desperate, you've waited until the last minute, you want someone to bail you out. Other tutors may be eager to help, but I won't. If you have landed in this predicament, then there are problems you should have addressed much earlier in the course. I wish you would have asked for help way back then. I might have been able to save your class work, so you would have learned what the instructor taught related to grammar, writing, etc. That would have been a better use of your tutor dollars, and you might have been able to work on your own thereafter. Now, you just want someone to save you. You won't have learned the topic or the skill. I'm sorry for you, but if you fail the class, perhaps you will consider finding a tutor at the beginning of the course... read more

Please notify me at least three hours before the lesson if you need to reschedule or would like the cancel the lesson. If you give notice at least three hours before the lesson, you will not be charged and the lesson will be successfully cancelled. If you give notice from three hours before the lesson to at least ten minutes before the lesson starts, you will be charged up to 50% of the agreed rate. If you give notice anytime after ten minutes before the lesson, you may be charged up to 100% of the agreed rate.

I value my time spent teaching and your time spent learning. In order to facilitate the scheduling of lessons, I use the following cancellation and no-show policies: 1. If you are unable to attend a scheduled online session, please send me a message through the Wyzant Messaging system 24 hours or more before start time of scheduled lesson. If done so, no charges will be applied to your account. If a student asks for a cancellation/rescheduling of lesson less than 12 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson, a cancellation fee will be assessed. 2. No Show: If you are more than 15 minutes late to a session / fail to show up and did not communicate to me that you are going to be late / absent before the session began, I will consider it as a "no show" and charge the full cost of the session. 3. If you are late to any session, but it is not considered a no-show as per my policy, we can continue the session. However, you will be charged the full amount,... read more

I respect both your time and mine. As such, the following cancellation policy will go into effect on 10/14/20. If you need to cancel: If you cancel at least 12 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be no charge and we can reschedule for a better time. If you cancel within 4-12 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the lesson price. If you cancel less than 4 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be a cancellation fee of 75% of the lesson price. My minimum lesson time is 1 hour. If you arrive late to a lesson, need to leave early, or don’t have enough material for an hour, I will still charge for the entire hour. If you do not show up within 15 minutes of the lesson start time, I reserve the right to consider it a ‘no-show’ and charge a cancellation fee of 100% of the lesson price. If you are canceling because of an emergency or similar, I will take that into consideration when assessing a... read more
