##### Algebra and Geometry

High School Algebra and Geometry take turns being my favorite thing to teach.

I am able to assist students with Algebra I, first and second semester topics. Frequently, Algebra students struggle with the following:

A partial list of topics found in high school Algebra follows:

• Solving equations and inequalities
• Linear equations with parentheses
• Multi-step inequalities
• Slope, horizontal and vertical lines, graph
• Slope-intercept form and point-slope form
• Solving systems of equation with substitutions
• Solving systems of equation with elimination
• Radicals and simplifying square roots

I try to take the struggle out of learning math, clearly and patiently explaining the above concepts and many, many more.

A partial list of topics found in high school Geometry follows:

• Points, lines, line segments, and planes
• Perpendicular Bisector Theorem
• Midpoint Formula
• Distance Formula
• Triangles: medians, altitudes, angle bisectors, and perpendicular bisectors
• Trapezoids, quadrilaterals, and parallelograms
• Pythagorean Theorem
• Perimeter, area, and volume

I regularly help students gain confidence and understand these topics and many more in Geometry.

## Elementary Reading & Writing

When working with elementary students, Cindy communicates with parents and teachers. Together, the parents, the tutor, and the classroom teacher support the student in reaching reading and writing goals.

A short list of topics follows.

• Phonics
• Word recognition
• Recognize irregularly spelled words
• Prose
• Poetry
• Fluency
• Main topic
• Transitions
• Conclusion
