Algebra can be a struggle for students. All of a sudden, there’s letters in addition to numbers they have to worry about. With over 5 years of 1:1 tutoring experience, I have helped many others learn algebra by identifying concepts that speak most to them and allow them to more easily wrap their heads around dealing with letters and numbers together through my unique coaching framework of progressive problem sets starting with first principles. Algebra is the foundation for all higher math, which is why I take so much care ensuring students not only ace their exams, but have a full concept mastery so they’ll be prepared for geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and beyond.

Are you ready to improve your grade in Algebra? I'd love to help you understand the math course you're taking and have fun with it. No matter what the course is called – Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2 - if you need assistance to understand the way it is presented in the book, I’ll help you comprehend every lesson. We can even try an alternate method until the light bulb comes on. Because once you understand a concept, you can return to the required method. My only goal is for you to succeed! Concepts in Algebra: Measurements – time, length, weight, volume, area Place Value Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Order of Operations Decimals Fractions Equations Inequalities Properties – Commutative, Associative, Distributive, Identity Simplifying - Distributive, FOIL Exponents Polynomials Negatives Substitution Method Angles Graphs & Graphing Slope of a Line Factoring Square Roots and Radicals Probability & Statistics Pre-Algebra Geometry Word problems I’m also a devotee of grammar and proofreading skills. I have been hired be several published authors to proofread their novels prior to publications. So if you need assistance with improving your Writing Skills, I am available for this as well – two tutors for the “price” of one.

Experienced, professional and patient tutor! My name is Junia. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of Central Florida (UCF). In college, I was in the Dean’s and President lists. I also had an honor scholarship which shows that I am driven by success at high standards. I hold an Advanced National Tutor Certificate. I have tutored many students in math, ESOL, and science over the past 10 years across all age groups with a very high success rate. My goals as a tutor are to offer an excellent and targeted learning which addresses specific learning challenges that the student is currently facing, to equip students with exam preparation strategies, and help them learn techniques that enable them to achieve and succeed in their subjects. I am very patient and attentive to the needs of the students so that they can attain their goals. My role as a tutor is to make learning enjoyable. I always keep my students engage in the learning process. I do everything I can to make learning a pleasant experience. I am willing to go the extra miles when students ask for additional help and clarification. Let me be your personal guide, so that you can become a self-sufficient learner capable of reaching and achieving far more than you ever thought possible. I'll help you get there by installing the growth mindset that you need to succeed. I'm a gifted and talented tutor. YOU are a gifted and talented student. I'll bring it out of you! Reach out and let me make learning fun for you again and let's tackle any one of those difficult subjects together. I require 24 hours notice for a cancellation. If a lesson is not cancelled, yet the student fails to show up within the first 15 minutes of the lesson, a no-show fee of 100% of that lesson will be kept. However, I completely understand that sometimes there may be an emergency. If this is the case, I am happy to reschedule the lesson for a later time if there is calendar availability, as long as the student messages me 24 hours prior to the scheduled session.

I have taught Algebra for over five years and it is probably my favorite math to teach. Its foundation is a few simple rules that with repetition are easily memorized and then can be used throughout the rest of your time studying it.

I view algebra like a game: there are simple rules that govern what you can do, and if you know and understand the rules, the game is a whole lot easier. If algebra seems to be a struggle for a student, I can help them identify the basic concepts (i.e. rules) on which they need to strengthen their understanding. Algebra is an essential tool I use to solve a myriad of problems every day as an engineer, and so I am intimately familiar with its many different topics, and perhaps because I understand its value, I genuinely enjoy teaching algebra to others. I remember what it was like to personally struggle with algebra, and I know the most common pitfalls which make it seem more difficult than it actually is. Because of this experience, I am quite adept on picking up on my students' weak points, and helping them clear up fuzzy understandings of the rules of algebra. I started teaching algebra six years ago when I first started teaching it to myself. Since that time, algebra has been the subject I have tutored the most, and I believe I have become quite good at helping students master concepts that were once most challenging for them. My goal is to help my students not only raise their algebra grades to all As, but more importantly, to help them establish a rock-solid base in algebra on which to build higher math skills. I do this by: 1. Providing each algebra student with a thorough, in-depth review of the basic concepts in which they have not yet mastered 2. Demonstrating central problem-solving techniques that are essential for all levels of math (and science) 3. Providing them with practice problems to do in between our sessions so that they have the opportunity to solidify the information and skills they learn. There are amazing careers waiting for those who are educated in higher mathematics, and everyone should have the opportunity to pursue them. It all begins with a solid foundation in algebra.
