This Algebra 1 tutoring course is designed to build a solid foundation in algebraic concepts, ensuring students are well-prepared for more advanced math courses. The course covers key topics such as solving equations, working with functions, and understanding linear and quadratic relationships. Each week, we will cover specific algebraic topics. Students are expected to send a screenshot of their lesson, scans of their work, or a list of topics and objectives at least 2 hours before each session. This allows for personalized tutoring tailored to the student's current learning needs. We will do a mix of doing questions together and students doing questions by themselves. This will ensure that the student understands the concept enough to perform well on a test. If students get stuck on a particular question between tutoring sessions, they can send them to the tutor for guidance. Give up to 48 hours for response. Algebra 1 Objectives: Expressions and Equations: • Simplify and evaluate algebraic expressions. • Solve linear equations and inequalities. • Solve systems of linear equations and inequalities. Functions: • Understand the concept of a function and use function notation. • Analyze and interpret different types of functions (linear, quadratic, exponential). • Graph and compare functions using different representations. Linear Relationships: • Understand slope and y-intercept in the context of linear functions. • Write and solve linear equations in various forms (standard, slope-intercept). • Apply linear models to solve real-world problems. Quadratic Functions and Equations: • Factor and solve quadratic equations. • Graph quadratic functions and analyze their key features (vertex, axis of symmetry). • Solve quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, and using the quadratic formula. Polynomials and Rational Expressions: • Perform operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) with polynomials. • Simplify and perform operations with rational expressions. Data Analysis and Probability: • Interpret and construct graphs, including histograms, box plots, and scatter plots. • Analyze data sets using measures of central tendency and variability. • Understand and apply basic concepts of probability. Problem Solving: • Apply algebraic concepts to model and solve real-world problems. • Develop reasoning and critical thinking skills in the context of algebraic operations and problem-solving.

##### Teacher expertise and credentials

From August of 2014 till June 2018 I worked as an adjunct math instructor and the program coordinator of the learning lab at Southern WV Community and Technical College. As the program coordinator of the learning labs I saw a lot of student who had been taught to memorize math instead of discover math. My experience not only as a math instructor, but as a radio engineer and data analysts has led me to the belief that math is best learned through skill building, discussion, and discovery.
I decided that I wanted to work with students starting in Pre-algebra, Algebra one, and Geometry. Currently I teach the following classes: (Make sure to scroll to the end to find out about office hours)
Pre-Algebra Year one:
Discovering Pre-Algebra Part one
In this class we will discover the organization and purpose of order of operations. How to perform order of operations with different types of rational numbers (exponents, square roots, decimals, fractions, integers, absolute value).
Discovering Pre-Algebra Part two
In this class we will discover proportional thinking and how it applies to different ideas in math (unit rates, unit conversions problems, discounts, tax, gratuity, markup’s, markdown’s, late fees, similar figures). We will also look at simple interest.
Discovering Pre-algebra Part three
In this class we will discover statistics and how to collect (Mean, median, mode, mid-range), display (box plots, stem and leaf, histograms, circle graph, and more), and interpret data (Venn diagram, tree diagram, Probability, and odds).
Pre-Algebra Year two
Discovering Pre-Algebra Part four
In this class we will discover the basics of Algebra (combining like terms, one and two step equations, one variable inequalities, absolute value equations, basics of exponents and radicals, scientific notation)
Discovering Pre-Algebra part five
In this class we will discover basic geometry skills for 2-d and 3-d shapes.
Discovering Pre-Algebra Part six
In this class we will discover graphing and linear equations.
Algebra one:
Discovering Algebra one: Part 1
Discovering Expression, Equations, Inequalities, linear equations and mathematical reasoning.
Discovering Algebra One Part 2
Shifting and reflecting Linear equations, Function families, domain and range, systems of equations and inequalities.
Discovering Algebra One Part 3
Discover the rules and properties of exponents and radicals. How to apply the Pythagorean Theorem and is converse to real life situation.
Discovering Algebra One Part 4
In the class you will work with polynomials, factoring and quadratic equations.
I love math and I hope that your learner finds my love for math infectious!
******* On Thursday, Friday and Saturday I have another job (well I babysit my grand babies) if you email during one of these days I may not be able to get back to you until Sunday or Monday.
