Private Tutoring

  • I use an online classroom to share screens with you.
  • I write on top of the problems while I talk you through them.
  • You can ask questions via voice or chat.
  • At the end of the session you get a PDF of the notes.
  • The Colorado State University Math Placement Exam (i.e. Math Placement Tool and Math Placement Challenge) is really meant to be taken by incoming freshmen and those with strong math backgrounds who are looking to pass out of the PACe courses. If you are not a strong math student and are looking to just pass into the PACe courses this is not the exam for you (see the CSU's Entry Level Mathematics exam).

    The Math Placement Exam is 50 Questions and broken up into three main subject areas:

    1. Algebra
    2. Trigonometry
    3. Logarithm and Exponential Functions

    You have 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the Math Placement Exam. You are allowed to use a TI-84 Calculator on the Math Placement Exam.

    To help you prepare you for the CSU Math Placement Exam I will take you through the CSU online Math Placement Exam tutorial tool. I will show you step by step how to best accomplish each type of problem, which is often times by using a calculator. Depending on how much of the exam you are looking to prepare for will vary the amount of time we will need to work together to accomplish your goals. Also, if you start going through the tutorial on your own and come to the sessions with problems (i.e. screenshots) you are having issues with, and know the areas you don't need to cover, that will save us some time.
