In sessions, concepts are explained clearly if there is a need. Otherwise, practice is the focus. Active learning is best in any subject. Material and concepts are presented after a relevant practical problem is chosen. Then the required knowledge and problem solving approach and methods are presented. Teaching strategy in test taking is beneficial to many students. Teaching error-free programming techniques is valuable in CS. The approach to physics and math problems should also be an error-free one. In all technical subjects, problem solving should be accomplished in small steps, checking the consequences of each before proceeding.

I want to help students learn problematic material. Beating fear of success is possible through sustained small successes. The only real teaching/tutoring goal is to teach a student everything the teacher/tutor knows so that the teacher/tutor is no longer necessary.

Homework help can be getting your homework done for you. That can be in a meeting or outside of a meeting. In either case, that approach is probably not the best for you. It is imperative that one learns math through practice. It is possible to get help in a meeting where homework that causes problems is discussed. A problem will be solved for you if you cannot solve it. The solutions are presented using oneNote and a tablet with a stylus. That way, the solution should be legible. It is also possible to produce a one-page pdf containing all of the solutions presented in the meeting. If the homework is done outside of a meeting for you, a pdf would be sent on one page with all of the solutions.

Mathematics is a subject which causes fear in many people. That fear is nothing but an imaginary obstacle to be overcome. Its overcoming can be achieved through small successes and significant practice, with additional support if necessary (such as a tutor). Nothing perceived with fear can be perceived accurately, so that is why there is always hope in overcoming math fear.

Practicing mathematics through problem solving is essential for all, whether there is or isn't fear. One's muscles in the arm and hand also help to learn and remember the actions of solving problems mathematically with a pen or pencil. One can recognize if sufficient practice has occurred when there is no need to memorize any part of the math topic at hand. In more advanced mathematics, where proofs are required instead of calculations, memorization is very important. It is good that greater experience in math allows one to learn and memorize math more quickly. In pure math (with proofs), practice is learning the proofs. Homework will also be proofs, but the level of difficulty of the homework will be much lower than the level of the proofs in one's text or lecture. Those proofs took years of research to develop in some cases, so a student cannot be expected to develop proofs at that level. In addition, if the material is not clear from a first reading, then several or so readings may be required. Each individual reading will add more understanding, albeit slow at times. Once one's background in the math area studied increases, less work will be required in the future. Of course, in most courses, the difficulty of the material also increases with time during the course. This may then cause a constant effort to be required.

I have tutored mathematics recently since 2014. I have tutored elementary math up to differential equations and introduction to linear algebra. That includes calculus 1, 2, and 3. I have spent some time also tutoring AP or IB calculus. I tutor math to physics students often, and occasionally to CS students. Tutoring statistics has been a problem, since I do not have a license for expensive statistical software such as SPSS or MINITAB. I have even helped an economics graduate student with his mathematics. I have also tutored discrete math, which is part of computer science, but is usually taught by a mathematician. Mathematics is still my favorite subject. I earned a BS in mathematics.

Your homework will be completed by JC-PD LLC.

You would be first required to supply the email address of the individual who will pay for the homework help.

A completion date and time must be agreed upon. Last-minute homework help is unlikely since JC-PD LLC is not an on-demand service. All services at JC-PD LLC are scheduled appointments. Almost always, a minimum of 24 hours before the completion date/time is required for acceptance of homework. The rate is $40 per hour.

Next, you would be required to supply all relevant files required to complete the homework - instructor supplied instructions or textbook problems.

The actual charge for homework completion is calculated by the time required to complete the homework. Generally estimates prior to homework completion are not provided.

Your homework will be completed efficiently and correctly. Solutions would be provided in a pdf file, and you should review the returned solutions.

It is very rare that a homework assignment will not be completely correct when returned to you. Generally, if there are potential problems with the homework, you would be informed of that before the assignment is attempted. You would have the option of not using JC-PD LLC, of course, in such cases.

Generally, students are happy with the homework completed by JC-PD LLC. I know enough to have no problems understanding assignment instructions. Some instructors do not give well-prepared instructions, unfortunately.

In some cases where the assignment is very short, it is possible to give a reasonable estimate of the time required to complete the assignment. If the assignment requires only 30 minutes, you would be charged $20.

Payment is required within 24 hours of completion of the assignment. An invoice will be sent when the homework is complete.
