I love to help youngsters learn Algebra I because it provides so many helpful tools for finding solutions to everyday problems. There's also an element of reading and thinking carefully that helps develop a sense of logic that can be used in other subjects. Also, once someone grasps these concepts, they are rarely forgotten, even late in life. Most students understand almost everything they need to know, but lack enough practice with all types of problems to develop skill and confidence sufficient to do well on math tests. I can easily explain what's missing and provide the necessary practice. Most students don't need many lessons from me to be able to handle this subject on their own.
