Are you a university or school looking for an online tutoring partnership ?

in this module. You have already engaged in the beginnings of the writing process of this essay. You have:
Brainstormed ideas (see Chapter 11 in SMG) about the essay in the Discussion Board.
Condensed your ideas down into manageable points around a working thesis.
Displayed knowledge of Description essays from Learning Activities
Drafted a Writing Activity (WA2) about this Description essay.
Consulted with a writing tutor to find areas of strength and areas of improvement.
Finally, you will now compose the final draft of a description essay that:
contains a clear thesis
identifies clear points to support your thesis
engages in critical thought about the subject chosen
uses 2-4 main ideas (points) that support your overall essay thesis
allows you to expand on your chosen topic
This essay assignment represents the first steps in writing any written essay for any academic course. The idea of thesis and support are the cornerstones of all essays. They represent the last part of the writing process. However, you may still revise your essay before final submission. This form of essay writing is the basis for all other academic writing pursuits. This skill translates to almost all careers that require critical thinking, critical reading, and responding in writing. Practicing "how to" write an essay carries over into any field's task of "what" you need to write. This skill will help with all formal writing.
Task
Write a 900-word essay, in MLA format, about a person or fictional character in whom you have an interest.
Select a subject (person or fictional character you admire)
Look to your Discussion (D1) and Writing Activity 2 (WA2) for your subject
The person may be current or historical
Some fictional characters have positive traits that can be identified.
Select several (2-4) traits about the person or character that you admire and write about these. These will be the essay's main ideas.
Biographical information should be used only to support claims.
Your essay should focus on the traits you admire. Do not write a biography or tell a story.
Example of what not to do: This person was born in 1979. They were born in middle Tennessee. They went to elementary school is 1985. They graduated in 1998.
Instead, follow this example: This person was born in middle Tennessee. Entering elementary in school in 1985 was hard for them. They never felt that they belonged in kindergarten. However, they persevered, learning that school was a place for them to grow and be themselves.
Focus on the "why" you admire them instead of a list of traits. In the above example, perseverance and learning to be themselves are the traits the writer of the essay admires.
Organize your main ideas to establish the essay's pattern of organization.
Your main ideas (traits you have chosen) need to be clearly organized.
Decide in what order you wish to discuss these main ideas (traits)
This organization needs to be presented in your introduction, preferably as the last sentence of your introduction in the thesis statement.
Note: your thesis is generally the last sentence in your introduction, but it not a requirement.
Follow this structure throughout the rest of the essay.
Always check to see if your main ideas/topic sentences, in each paragraph, relate back to your thesis statement.
Compose 5 well-developed paragraphs that support a clear thesis statement that is arguable.
5 paragraph minimum
introduction paragraph
introduces your essay and presents your thesis
three body paragraphs
Each paragraph contains one of your chosen admirable traits about your subject
expressed in a topic sentence in your paragraph
Each trait needs to transition to the next one in the next paragraph
look to your chosen pattern of development
conclusion paragraph
rephrases your traits into one last paragraph
reflects the earlier thesis, but with the knowledge of your traits expressed throughout the essay
This essay is a basic form of an argument essay. The essay should make an argument such as that the person or character selected is worthy of admiration because of the traits selected.

and range for its inverse.
2.if a function is graphed you can rotate the graph 90 degrees and you will always get the graph of the inverse
3..making the y cordiantes negative will produce the points on the inverse
and my last one isnt a yes or no its a equaion which is useing (f(g(x)) and it says to find the inverse with it and the quations givien are f(x)=3x+4 and g(x)= 1/3x-4/3

s the 6 pillars of a social media marketing plan that are needed to achieve the company's goals; set social media marketing goals, research audience, analyze competition, establish important metrics, asses results and optimize. I am going to go into detail about each pillar for this paragraph. My second point is "Once the marketing plan is set in place, business uses social media to facilitate consumers through the purchase process." I am going to talk about the stages of the purchasing process. My first two points flow together in my opinion. I am not sure what my third point will be. I want to talk about how the business uses social media to reach out to consumers and inform them about their product. The business also uses social media platforms to interact with social influencers who can promote their products on their social media. My idea of the third point does not really flow well with my first two points. Can you help me with a third point that does flow together with my first two? I am sorry if this is a bit confusing. Time is really against me on this one.

6.(1,5) , (2,10) and (3, 19) are points on the curve y = ax^2 + bx + c. Found a, ...

-1 and c = 4.
So quadratic function is y = 2x^2 - x + 4.
Next question is: suppose that the 3rd point is written as (3, t). Find all values for t that will change the quadratic function y =ax^2 + bx + c into a linear function.

10.Must know how to use TI 84 Plus CE calculator and be able to teach that skill without wasting time, ...

or give some complimentary/bonus time while you figure it out, or figure out how to do particular things between sessions instead of during the session
Current topics: understand slope and y-intercept and be able to apply it to equations written using different letters instead of m and b or instead of y and x; parallel, perpendicular line equations; calculate slope/gradient of graphs/sides of shapes/equations; calculate midpoint; calculate distance between two points on a graph; find the equation of a line given a graph or given 2 points; learn the meanings of symbols such as R for real numbers, Z for integers' calculate area of a triangle on a graph
The student is in Kazakhstan and speaks Russian and Kazakh fluently, but is intermediate in English. Please speak with her in English as much as possible, but knowing Russian or Kazakh would be a good bonus that would make you preferable to other tutors all else being about the same, though familiarity with TI calculators or the ability to figure them out is also very important.

11.Hi, I have one question on my math homework that I can't seem to figure out. Please help me! Here ...

is Imagine that in the voting for a certain award, 7 points are awarded for first place, 4 points for second, 3 points for third, 2 points for fourth, and 1 point for fifth. Suppose there were five candidates (A, B, C, D, and E) and 47 voters. When the points were tallied, A had 155 points, B had 173 points, C had 170 points, and D had 154 points. Find how many points E had and give the ranking of the candidates. (Hint: Each of the 47 ballots hands out a fixed number of points. Figure out how many, and take it from there.)
