No, but I can send you a sample of the class notes, so you can see length and complexity of the material.
The typical sequence is: Pre-Algebra –> Algebra 1 –> Geometry –> Algebra 2.
Please email me if your student is following a different math path.
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 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.
Yes! I highly encourage students to use their calculators, especially to check their work.
I recommend the Casio fx-300ES PLUS, because it has a large display and handles fractions beautifully.
For Algebra 2 and above, I highly encourage students to use the Desmos app because it is easier to understand than a handheld graphing calculator.
If your student needs a graphing calculator, I recommend the TI-84 –OR– the Casio fx-9750
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.
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.
