Let me start off by saying that math is my FAVORITE subject! In these tutoring sessions, you will receive help with homework, prepare for tests and quizzes, and better your overall understanding of math. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good work ethic.

My daughter in 3rd grade really enjoyed this lesson! Jessie was very nice and kind and Kira even had the opportunity to sign in the first session. These lessons are super convenient for parents that are tired of traveling in the car to non-stop places during the day. Would definitely recommend Ms. Jessie.

Patience and student confidence building are priorities. Positive reinforcement and keeping student organized when tackling any problem will help them bring on their own success.

I have 3 boys ages 7-12. Somehow Janis manages to make time to teach and read with all three before she leaves. The kids love her and more importantly respect her.
If you can get her I highly recommend it.
She covers all subjects and specializes in science by making it fun and entertaining.
5 Stars all the way!

Rocklin, CA

As a child I struggled with math, in fact for most of my high school career it was the bane of my existence, I was always more inclined to language and social studies. I became convinced that I "wasn't a math person" and that "my brain just doesn't work that way." However that began to change in my Algebra 2 class with Mr. Klein. I realized that having a great teacher really does make all the difference. Finally concepts that had eluded me became as clear as day. I began to actually enjoy math. Since Ive been tutoring Algebra I have seen nothing but success from my students. I have one student in particular who has risen through the ranks and is now only one class away from transfer level math at Sierra. 3 semesters ago she would have shot me if I tried to show her the things she is conquering now, with ease I might add.

I believe patience is key with learning math. A good teacher, without the patience to sit down with and help the student through the struggles of learning new ...

I love teaching Algebra. I think math is very enjoyable and I share my happiness and knowledge, so my students could feel that also. You would probably laugh quite a few times during my Algebra class and leave it feeling way more confident that you could do it. I do not believe in memorizing Math, so we work on understanding and students are creating their own Algebra in a way. And creating a proof is a very enjoyable experience that you never forget.

I also love teaching online. There are so many wonderful tools for that now!!! For example, screen sharing. Screen sharing allows my students to see my computer screen if I'm explaining something and show me what they are working on their screens. As we progress through the class I share links on rules and definitions that my student doesn't remember or getting confused and we could work with that right away and also the notes on the class are still available on both of our computers, so it is easy to review, ask questions and ...

Why TakeLessons?

Algebra Lessons

As your child gets older, the math they learn in school gets more difficult. While each new skill builds upon a skill that was learned previously, once your child gets to Algebra, you might start to see him struggling to figure out the concepts. If your child seems to be having a hard time figuring out his Algebra homework and you've seen some poor test grades, it might be time to think about getting him some extra help. Algebra tutoring from TakeLessons is a great way to help your child get caught up with the rest of his class as well as stay on track for the remainder of the school year.

The Benefits Of Algebra Tutoring

Algebra tutoring has many benefits for kids in that it's one-on-one instruction that gives them the opportunity to ask questions and get extra help when they need it. In larger classrooms, it's not always easy for the teacher to offer the help that's needed. While some kids are naturally good at math, others require a little bit more assistance to help them understand it. Algebra tutoring gives your child the opportunity to go back to the beginning of the course if need be, when it first started to get hard for him, and build upon those concepts that were learned early on.

What's Covered in Algebra Tutoring

Algebra tutoring with TakeLessons will follow the curriculum your child's teacher uses. Our tutors will provide information that's designed to back up what your child learns in the classroom, but it will be tailored to your child's needs. You'll find your child's tutor to have exceptional knowledge in Algebra and whether they cover linear equations or factoring polynomials, the material will help your child learn Algebra at a much quicker pace than a classroom setting alone.

It can be difficult for a child who struggles with Algebra while the rest of his class seems to be catching on quickly. That's why many parents, just like you, choose Algebra tutoring as a way to help their child maintain the self-confidence that's necessary for excellence in academics.

Some benefits of working with a TakeLessons Algebra tutor include: 
• Algebra Tutoring sessions that are customized to the specific needs of your son or daughter 
• Safe, friendly, qualified tutors who have completed an extensive hiring process, including education, reference and background checks 
• The flexibility of lessons in your home, online, or in a convenient location like a library or coffee shop
• A risk-free 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied our Algebra tutoring professionals are dedicated to your child's success.

You and your child will be so thrilled that you made the decision to start tutoring, which you'll see makes a difference even on the first report card. For more information about our Algebra tutoring services, contact us today!
