What it takes to be a good tutor?

Teaching is not that easy as it looks like and takes a lot of effort on the part of the tutor to become a successful professional. Good tutors are popular and respected anywhere they go and are capable of easily motivating students towards studies and their respective interests. A good tutor can be recognized at a glance and a conversation would be enough to testify the fact. The demand for good tutors is quite healthy around the country as students need the guidance and assistance of a tutor from initial stages of their academic career only.

So, what it takes to be a good tutor is the question now! Before answering that it is better to break a myth that tutors are not necessarily of very high qualification and supreme intelligence. Tutoring is a an activity or profession of relative competence, that is, even if you are a high school student or a graduate student you can always teach few students junior to you as long as you have your knowledge and concepts sound and correct added up with good communication and explanation skills. All that is needed of a tutor is to clarify the concepts that students may find a bit hard initially and clear the doubts and obstacles they face while learning a particular subject or topic.

Basic Properties of Triangles

Basic Properties of Triangles

Triangles have many useful properties that allow us to calculate many things easily. Some of the most basic and common properties will be discussed here.

First off, let us discuss how to calculate the area of a triangle if you do not know its height. If all you have are the lengths of the sides A, B and C, there is still a way to calculate it. It is given by

sqrt(Sx(S-A)(S-B)(S-C)). Where S = A+B+C/2 or Perimeter/2.

A triangle has the property that the largest angle is opposite to the largest side, and vice versa. Also, it is not possible to construct a triangle if the sum of any two of its sides is not greater than the third side. Thus, for three sides X, Y and Z, they can form a triangle if and only if X+Y>Z, Y+Z>X and X+Z>Y.

Aspects of Information Science

Aspects of Information Science

Information science is the science of collecting, classifying, storing, changing and displaying of data. It uses the concepts of databases and database management systems to organize data. It is not a science directly related to computer science; in fact it draws from many disciplines such as library science, mathematics, statistics and management. It merely developed to using computers as a tool, and the focus is on how they can be effectively utilized for data management than on how they work.
Information science started out as small libraries consisting of a limited collection of books. It expanded through the years as the technology developed; it progressed to using punch cards to store information and finally to computers – mini and super computers for large amount of data and manipulation.

Few Ideas About Preparation for MBA Admission

Few Ideas About Preparation for MBA Admission

Your first step in preparing for your MBA (Masters in Business Administration) is to discuss the admissions process with your chosen school. Many schools will want to see a passing grade on the GMAT before admitting you to their MBA programs, although if your bachelors’ degree was in business administration or a closely related field this requirement may be waived.

The GMAT is a detailed four part test that costs $250.00 per test attempt. The test scores range from two hundred points to eight hundred points; most schools that use the GMAT as part of their admissions process will require a minimum four hundred and fifty point score for admission to their MBA program.

It is advisable to enroll in GMAT preparation courses before attempting the GMAT for the first time. These courses often can be taken online (KapTest, Knewton, and GMAT Prep Now are just three of the online providers of GMAT prep) or you can also find courses at your local four-year college or university. Whether you choose an online or offline preparation course, they all use repeated practice of the skills you will need to successfully pass the test.

High Job Placement Rates at the Time of Heavy Unemployment: A Story We Don’t Believe

In the midst of economic stagnation and with unemployment rising, it is surprising to see colleges like Ferris State University in Michigan which displays unbelievably high job placement rates of 97-98%.

Ms. Salomonson, who is the dean of enrollment department in Ferris State, admits that making conclusions, based on extremely low levels of response from their graduates, is wrong. However, such statistics help to attract more students to college.
This situation is quite common for educational institutions of all kinds: in order to attract students, universities sometimes provide information which is far from being accurate. The reliability of such data has been more than once questioned by many but the problem still exists. Researchers say that graduation surveys simply cannot be relied upon for there are no official standards or regulations to control the process.

Choose your job: mortgage loan originator

Choose your job: mortgage loan originator

A mortgage loan originator is hired by mortgage companies and banks to find and acquire potential borrowers in the market, who are interested in getting a new mortgage loan. Mortgage loan originators have to be qualified under a state’s laws to practice the act of being a mortgage loan originator, where he/she must be licensed prior after going through a background check, educational courses, written tests as part of the procedure, and authorization of credit. A mortgage loan originator helps customers look for loans that they are interested in getting, where there are two kinds of originators that one can come into contact with. One is a residential loan originator, and the other is a commercial loan originator.
A residential mortgage originator helps customers refinance or purchase a home, or to possess a mortgage for the purpose of having a second mortgage or a home equity line of credit. The other kind of loan originator (commercial) helps customers refinance or purchase commercial real estate.

English Learning: Adjectives

English Learning: Adjectives

Adjectives are words that qualify nouns, that is, they describe and give us more information about the nouns in the sentence. For example, in ‘A black cat runs after a small rat’, the words ‘black’ and ‘small’ are adjectives, because they describe the nouns – we know the color of the cat is black and the size of the rat is small.

For certain kinds of adjectives, there are degrees of comparison. That is, we can compare one noun with another or many more, and conclude to which of them the adjective applies best. For example, if ‘Randy is tall’ and ‘Barbara is tall’ but Barbara’s height is more than Randy’s, then you would say ‘Barbara is taller than Randy.’ The –er ending makes the word ‘tall’ a second degree adjective or comparative, when you compare two nouns and show that the adjective suits one of them better than the other. What if you compared a noun to many of them? For example, what if Barbara’s height is more than anyone’s in the class? Then you would say ‘Barbara is the tallest in her class’.
