No, but I can send you a sample of the class notes, so you can see length and complexity of the material.
For middle school students, the sequence is: Problem Solvers, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1.
After Algebra 1, students are eligible to enroll in Geometry, Algebra 2, or Statistics.
Geometry is usually taken before Algebra 2, but it can be taken concurrently, for advanced students.
Most of my material is based on textbooks published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. They are typical of what is used in public school.
Statistics uses an open-source textbook that is free to download.
Check out the Class Supplies page for details.
Yes. All classes, except Problem Solvers, have a 10-week project each semester. These projects designate the class as Honors-level.
The projects are not more difficult; they just require more time.
The class projects for Algebra 1 and Geometry have been simplified for the new academic year (AY 2022-23).
Two-column proofs (which had been part of the Geometry class) have been moved to a special section.
Yes! I highly encourage students to use their calculators, especially to check their work.
For middle schoolers, I recommend the Casio fx-300ES PLUS.
For Algebra 1 or Geometry, I recommend the TI-30XS Multiview.
For Algebra 2 or above, I recommend the TI-84 PLUS graphing calculator.
Statisics students must have a graphing calculator (or equivalent).
The tuition covers the workbook and individual tutoring outside of class, as needed.
The textbook, calculator, and other class supplies are purchased separately.
Your first tuition installment is non-refundable. It is due June 1st (or upon registration).
If you drop the class, I will refund your tuition, on a pro-rated basis, less the first installment.
Study Sessions are like “open office hours”. I setup Zoom rooms for each class. Students from all sections of a class can work together on homework, reviews, and/or projects.
I join the Zoom room periodically to check on student progress. Students can also request my help from inside the Zoom room.
I meet with students during these office hours on a first-come-first-served basis. If a student needs more help, they can email me to setup a individual tutoring session.
Tutoring is free for my students, during the academic year, on an “as-needed” basis.
Students who are not keeping up with the material, or require significant outside help, may be dropped from the class.
I do not offer tutoring for students who are not enrolled in my classes.
All of my classes are Honors level. They are not centered around any specific test.
I can offer extra tutoring session to help students prepare for the AP Statistics exam, as needed.
