Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is extremely important for students because it provides a needed credit for high school graduation. Algebra 1 was my first paid tutoring job. I was a senior in high school and was hired by my gym teacher to tutor her daughter, a freshman. Out of the hundreds of students I've tutored over 23 years, more than half have been for Algebra 1. It is very important that an Algebra 1 tutor approach most problems in 3 ways for best understanding, the way common core intended the math to be taught - graphically, algebraic w/equations, and arithmetic w/patterns. I always keeps this in mind when tutoring Algebra 1. I am an expert with the NYS Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 Regents exams.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 often has multiple step problems. Let me list out each step clearly like I'm your personal textbook. Then I will carefully work through each problem. I love explaining Algebra 2, especially the trigonometry and working with polynomials. I can teach the math in multiple ways and explain topics simply using step-by-step procedure. I am an expert at using the TI graphing calculators.

The trick to great prealgebra tutoring is practice, practice, practice! I have hundreds of pages of worksheets for you to practice your essential prealgebra skills with, and master the math. I know tricks for learning multiplication, best ways to operate fractions, and easy to understand equations.

I have completed every NYS Alg 1, Geo, Alg 2 Regents since 1998 and they've been called so many different names! The math work is essentially the same, but how the question is asked has vastly changed, and I'm an expert on the differences.
