## Profile

I am a recent graduate from Kent State University with an Associate of Applied Business and a Bachelor of Business Administration. During my studies, I excelled at math, financing, and accounting and was offered tutoring jobs at the university. Unfortunately, I had to decline the jobs at the time due to my work schedule to be able to afford classes. I have a passion for learning, and I believe I have the ability to pass on the same knowledge to the next generation.

My job experience has been in the food and health service since high school graduation. I am currently a supervisor for Aramark at the Ashtabula County Medical Center and operate the night shift. My occupation has given me the chance to understand the role of being a leader and being able to pass on the knowledge I have obtained over the years.

I am seeking to tutor in math; my highest studies have been in multiple levels of calculus, business finance, statistics, and accounting. However, I have excelled in algebra my whole life. I am looking to give others aide in this area to improve the overall understanding of math as well as improve grades and scores.

## Polynomials part 1- Vocabulary and Understanding Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 20, 2017

A polynomial is an expression that consists of variables and coefficients. The expression will only consist of operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication, as well as exponents that are non-negative integers. There are 4 types: 1) monomial 2) binomial 3) trinomial 4) polynomial. Examples: 1) 4x 2) 5x+3y 3) 3x^2+2x+2 4) x^5-3x^2+x-5 Notice that the…

## Multiple Linear Equations Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 16, 2017

This particular tutorial will demonstrate how one can find multiple linear equations. If you believe you need a better understanding of single linear equations, please view my 3 part tutorial (Graph proportional relationship). We will first use an example before graphing. You will be given 2 equations: 1) x+2y=1 2) 2x+4y=2 Before we begin, I…

## Graph Proportional Relationships Part 3- Slope and Application Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 14, 2017

After reviewing the process of slope intercept form, we can finally apply this to real life scenarios. The first example is the speed of a sloth, which is probably more interesting than all of these math tutorials. However, it is important to understand the units involved in real cases. Example 1 The first thing one…

## Graph Proportional Relationships Part 2- Slope Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 14, 2017

After understanding the where and how to find coordinates on a graph, we must understand the relationship between the points. This relationship is known as slope and will be a very popular term used for the rest of your math career. Slope is used in linear equations, meaning it is a straight line. Below is…

## Graph Proportional Relationships Part 1- Review Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 14, 2017

Graphing proportional relationships is just another way of stating “find the point on the grid or graph.” Coordinates or points can be found on a grid with an x-axis and y-axis, each marked with specific units. The most basic graph below illustrates the key factors of a graph: the x-axis (horizontal), the y-axis (vertical), mid-point…

## Scientific Notation Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 13, 2017

Scientific Notation is another way of saying a number to the power of 10 to simplify very large or very small numbers, like the population of the world or the number water molecules in the ocean. It is written as follows: There are the 3 key points to this: the coefficient, the base of 10,…

## Exponents, Equations, and Expressions Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 13, 2017

Exponents that are whole numbers are straight forward: 5 to the second is 25 and 6 to the third is 216. 5 to the second is also known as 5 squared and 6 to the third is also known as 6 cubed. Why? Because 5×5= 25= 5 squared and 6x6x6= 216= 6 cubed. This is…

## Rational v.s. Irrational Numbers Posted by: Zachary P on Sep 13, 2017

In this very large world full of numbers, it can be confusing as to what the difference between a “rational” number and an “irrational” number are. To put it as simple as possible, rational numbers can be whole numbers (1,2,3), integers (-1, -2, -3) and even fractions or decimals (1/4, .1, 2/3). An irrational number…
