Linear algebra is the first kind of algebra that a student is introduced to.

We recognise linear equations because each term is either a constant or the product of a constant and a variable. Note that there are no squares or other powers, an no xy terms or anything like that. These equations can have one or more variables but we are limited to one variable per term.

Although the study of linear equations is extensive and can enter many dimensions, and can involve complex numbers (for example), I am mostly going to restrict myself to work that would be covered in high school (and the first year or so of college/university).

I would describe Graeme as one of the best tutors I ever had. During my school years I spent some time attending one of the major tutoring organizations in town and I found it was difficult for the tutors to spend the time needed to assist me with problem solving due to the class size. My mother rang a private tutor in the phone book who gave her Graeme’s phone number as he specialized in tutoring high school students and was a teacher who used to work at my school. He offered a tutoring service at convenient times which suited our busy life style. The one-on-one service that Graeme provides was what I needed and I saw improvements straight away with my exam results. This made my parents very happy and I found a new confidence in approaching exams. I have since left school but have stayed in contact with Graeme and he has provided me with terrific practical suggestions in preparing for interviews. I would not hesitate in recommending Graeme as a great teacher.
