This class cover a full High School Pre-Calculus curriculum. The summer portion covers a summer preload to prep the student for the school year. Beginning in September the full set of course modules are taught through May with Assessments. Topics include: Algebraic graphing and operations: linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, piecewise, absolute value exponential and logarithm functions. Trigonometry: unit circle, graphing and transformations of sine, cosine, tangent, secant, cosecant, and cotangent functions, law of sines and law of cosines, trig identities, matrices, conics, hyperbolas, circles, parabolas, and ellipses. One 50-minute session each week will strengthen your learner's Pre-Calculus skills as we walk through the entire course with teach to mastery.

At the end of this course, your student will be able to say, "I know Pre-Calculus!  I can do vectors, matrices, trigonometry, the unit circle, conicals and probability!”
I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done!  I used a focused approach. We honed in on trouble areas, really understood the underlying math concept, and drilled for mastery.  

Rest assured, students finish my classes and turn to their parents and say, "I finally get it!"  Here are some reviews from classes here on Outschool to show what I mean...

From CT - 
Love this teacher! My kids are requesting more of her classes. Thank you teacher Kitty! 
Energetic and patient teacher. I accidentally signed up my younger son with his older brother and she made the class interesting for both of them and they asked to join another class of teacher Kitty.  Thank you !

From William-
Wonderful class. The class speed was just right, and our daughter was able to follow along relatively well. She benefited greatly from this opportunity to reinforce her understanding the solving quadratic equations. Thanks!!!

From Dillon-
This the second linear equation class my son took from Teacher Kitty.  My son felt he learned a lot on this subject and took very useful notes, and gained a lot more confidence than when he just started learning it.  

From Mary -
I am really pleased that our first lesson at Outschool was such a fantastic one. Kitty is really good and my son loved that he could understand her clearly (initially worried as he is not American or in America ) I observed that she really took her time to explain terminologies and she gave the class more time to really grasp the lesson. My shy son eventually came out of his shell and contributed to the class. We are looking forward to more classes with her.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
The learner's progress is assessed by how well the learner participates in the interactions during class.
Grades Offered
As the teacher, I will supply the information needed for class.  I will be using Kahn Academy's resources on Algebra and point the learners to specific videos and practice problems on that page. As a teacher who has done this many times before, I can tell you that using a web resource in place of a textbook far-better prepares a student for his/her future academic and professional career. 
 In college and the real world, nowadays, information is readily available if someone knows how to access it. All of the same information that is in textbooks are now available on credible free websites.

Students should also have a pencil,  and graph paper. A T!-84 or higher level calculator is encouraged and needed for some of the work in this class.
Parents should make sure their learners are ready by making sure they know linear Algebra, Analytic Geometry (especially basic trigonometry) , and quadratic equations.  
No additional sources are needed for this class.

Hello, Outschool parents and learners! I have nearly all 5 out of 5 ratings because I'm known for the kind of caring and high energy math instruction that really gets learners understanding math from the inside out. So welcome to my classes! ...
