Understanding the concepts of algebra is a basic requirement of all students in school. Every high school standardized test, college entrance exam, and graduation requirement mandates a certain level of knowledge in mathematics to be achieved. Any upper level math course is built on the basic foundations that a student learns in their algebra classes. Any student struggling in these preliminary courses should acquire the services of a qualified tutor immediately. We have expert math tutors that can assist students in any of the following algebra courses:
Pre-algebra - The goal of Pre-algebra is to develop fluency with rational numbers and proportional relationships. Students will: extend their elementary skills and begin to learn algebra concepts that serve as a transition into formal Algebra and Geometry; learn to think flexibly about relationships among fractions, decimals, and percents; learn to recognize and generate equivalent expressions and solve single-variable equations and inequalities; investigate and explore mathematical ideas and develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations; analyze situations verbally, numerically, graphically, and symbolically; and apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life's experiences.
Algebra I - The main goal of Algebra is to develop fluency in working with linear equations. Students will: extend their experiences with tables, graphs, and equations and solve linear equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations and inequalities; extend their knowledge of the number system to include irrational numbers; generate equivalent expressions and use formulas; simplify polynomials and begin to study quadratic relationships; and use technology and models to investigate and explore mathematical ideas and relationships and develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations.
Algebra II - A primary goal of Algebra II is for students to conceptualize, analyze, and identify relationships among functions. Students will: develop proficiency in analyzing and solving quadratic functions using complex numbers; investigate and make conjectures about absolute value, radical, exponential, logarithmic and sine and cosine functions algebraically, numerically, and graphically, with and without technology; extend their algebraic skills to compute with rational expressions and rational exponents; work with and build an understanding of complex numbers and systems of equations and inequalities; analyze statistical data and apply concepts of probability using permutations and combinations; and use technology such as graphing calculators.
College Algebra – Topics for this course include basic concepts of algebra; linear, quadratic, rational, radical, logarithmic, exponential, and absolute value equations; equations reducible to quadratic form; linear, polynomial, rational, and absolute value inequalities, and complex number system; graphs of linear, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and absolute value functions; conic sections; inverse functions; operations and compositions of functions; systems of equations; sequences and series; and the binomial theorem.
No matter the level of the algebra course that the student is taking, we have expert tutors available and ready to help. All of our algebra tutors have a degree in mathematics, science, or a related field (like accounting). We are so confident in our algebra tutors that you can meet with them for free. Just ask your tutoring coordinator about our Meet and Greet program.
High School Tutors
Is your high school student college bound? Does every grade count towards a scholarship or a college application? High school students are inundated with grades, sports, work, volunteering, activities, and sometimes a little old fashioned teenage fun. When a high school student shows signs of struggling it is important to get them the help they need as soon as possible. Our high school tutors are available when and where you need them the most…in-home and on your schedule! Whether your high school student simply needs a boost of confidence with study skills, some test preparation and encouragement, or on-going semester long subject help, we have just the high school tutors that can help.
Our Tutoring Service
We believe that one-on-one, personalized, in-home instruction is the most effective way for students to focus on academic improvement and build confidence. We know that finding you the best tutor means more that just sending a qualified teacher into your home. We provide our clients access to the largest selection of highly qualified and fully screened professional tutors in the country. We believe that tutoring is most effective when the academic needs of the student are clearly defined. Our purpose is to help you clarify those needs, set academic goals, and meet those goals as quickly and effectively as possible. Using a tutor should be a positive experience that results in higher achievement and higher self-confidence for every learner.
