What If My Class Is Not Listed?

If your class is not listed, please contact me. I’m happy to discuss the particulars of your situation.

You might be taking a class for a specific certification, such as a contractor’s license. Or, you could want some prep for your GED or ASVAB. Lastly, you could want a refresher for a math placement test for a school.

In most cases, I can accommodate your needs. What would be most helpful is a PDF or link to the topics covered. Better yet, you could send a practice test or final from your course. Please give me time to review it. In most cases, I’m familiar enough with the math for most tests that I can help. I’d estimate that I’m able to help in more than 80% of cases.

What Calculator Should I use for my Math Subject?

If you’re allowed to use a calculator in your class, please find out which type you’re allowed to use. Most instructors make the distinction between scientific and graphing. A scientific calculator doesn’t have a graphing screen. Still, some scientific calculators are capable of quite a few functions, including trigonometry, statistics, and calculus.

If you’re allowed the use of a graphing calculator, you’ll want to use the TI 84 Plus CE, pictured below.

My Instructor is Very Specific about the Type of Calculator

Sometimes, you’re only allowed a calculator with the basic operation keys. These are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. That’s okay. We can work with that.

Other instructors might only allow a certain brand and model of a calculator. This is typically for standardized tests, such as the GED. That’s okay, too.

Lastly, some instructors allow calculators with only 1-2 lines of type. Let me know if that’s the case for you and I can explain.
