I applied for the academy of Math, Science, and Engineering when I went to high school, and in college, I held a science major before switching to Liberal Studies to become an educator. I also take time in the day to answer other students' mathematical questions in the resources section of WyzAnt. I have graduated college with a degree in Liberal Studies, which gives me a wide breadth of topics that I have learned about, from arithmetic to theater. I have been certified with a 30-day emergency substitute teacher credential and taken many post-graduate courses towards elementary teaching. I h [more]

Algebra is the basis of all symbolic variable mathematics, in which the exact value of one or more unknown quantities is obtained by logical, methodical manipulation of known relationships. Algebra 1 introduces the rules governing this manipulation, as well as other mathematical ideas you may not have seen yet. (Turns out you CAN take the square root of a negative number!) On a personal note: believe it or not, I didn't think I was very good at math until I took algebra in the eighth grade. Perhaps you, too, have found math up to this point pointless and boring--how many times must one regur [more]

I spent 12 years teaching in the CCSD. I taught Middle School (8th grade) Algebra and Pre Algebra. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics in addition to the Education courses required for certification. I also taught at the high school level. Middle school can be a challenging time for students, and I feel I developed a variety of teaching modalities to reach students regardless of their ability level I spent 12 years teaching in the CCSD. I taught Middle School (8th grade) Algebra and Pre Algebra. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics in addition to the Education courses requir [more]

In my teaching career, I have taught 1,000+ students in Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus! My students routinely grow their math skills by 3+ years in a single school year and regularly improve their grades from C?s and D?s to A?s! Not only that . . . but my students also report feeling significantly more confident in their math abilities and loving their math classes! In my 15+ years as a teacher, tutor, and mentor, I have worked with and taught over 1,000 students in numerous math subjects (Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geomet [more]

"We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself." -Lloyd Alexander First, Wyzant is filled with exceptional tutors so it's pretty tough to go wrong on here! The art of tutoring is as diverse and unique as the individuals who undertake it. I know tutors who are subject area experts, able to effortlessly and expertly assist students in a select few areas. On the other hand you have tutors that are good at a variety of subje... [more]

Greetings, Personal development is a process that occurs at every stage of one?s life and allows one to realize a potential that arises within the heart of our boldest dreams. Tutoring offers a profound level of engagement, wherein both the student and the tutor define and refine goals along their pursuit of excellence. I agree with Howard Gardner?s conclusion that there are multiple learning styles, yet seek to define an accurate means to appeal to a student?s learning style in a man... [more]

Basic Algebra skills stand as an important foundation for much of the higher mathematics students will see later on. It is important that they be mastered before a student moves on. I am particularly effective not only at teaching the base skills, but at linking them to both other forms of mathematics and to more real-world, concrete applications. I have ten years of experience teaching exam prep (SAT, ACT, and SAT II), including time at two of the largest exam prep companies in the country. I would love to use that experience to help your student achieve their maximum potential. I hold an [more]

I graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology, with a secondary major of Pre-medicine, Summa Cum Laude, in just three years. I also scored above the 90th percentile when I took the MCAT exam following graduation. I haven taken extensive coursework in areas of biology including molecular biology, eukaryotic & cellular biology, genetics & physiology, molecular mechanisms of cancer, along with courses in evolution and animal behavior. In addition, I hav... [more]

I am a licensed teacher in secondary math. I have ten years of classroom experience teaching Algebra I, II, Geometry, Pre-Algebra, and Trigonometry, as well as other subjects. I currently hold a license in Secondary Mathematics in the state of NV. I have ten years of teaching and coaching experience at the high school level. It has always brought me great pleasure to help students work through difficult material and see the light go on. I've always gone above and beyond to make that happen. I have great patience for all learning levels and types. I can help lay the foundation that will allow [more]

I have taught Algebra 1 at the high school level for the last 10 years, and have helped countless students pass the Math Proficiency Exam, as well as raising their letter grade 2 levels, on average. I create lessons custom designed for each student, and have a system that works. I've been successfully tutoring Math in Clark County for the last 10 years, and hold a B.S. in Engineering from Oakland University (Previously a branch of Michigan State). In my 21 years as an Engineer, I've worked for Apple Computer, Toshiba America, and Lucent Technologies. My background has allowed me to become cer [more]
