Unless you can definitively explain in detail how to work a student's physics or math or any other kind of problem so that it'll be crystal clear to him/her, it's best to leave those questions completely alone. Thankfully, Jiskha has a large number of tutors to help with math ...

Our tutors are all volunteers and answer questions when they have time. Please be patient. I haven't seen any tutors online who could answer your questions for several hours. Some tutors work late at night; others work first thing in the morning.

Sunday, August 29, 2010 at 9:04pm by Writeacher

Not at all. What you're doing will lose continuity. Tutors have to explain things over on the same subject for a different person, or keep referring to a previous post. It is much more efficient for you and for tutors to refer to the same screen name.

Stephanie, if you would stop typing in all-caps and just put "Math" in the subject line, you'd probably receive help. Anyone who shouts at tutors and demands things, usually is not helped.

You have now posted this identical text three times and haven't received a response yet. That usually happens IF all the tutors who read it don't have the expertise to give you a valid response. I'm sorry, but we don't have tutors to cover all possible subject areas.
