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.

I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Ben takes you right down to the lick-log with what he wants and expects from you. At the beginning I didn't appreciate the various directions he was taking me, like having to learn various chords, etc. on a keyboard. But I can see now that it is all coming together. Don't get the bighead, Ben, but it's all coming together now.

In its basic conceptual form, Algebra is a form of Mathematics with an equation and variables. An equation is "solved" when the values on either side of the = sign are balanced, and the variables bing an equation to life!

Curriculum will be discussed with the student so as to understand goals and co-create a pathway for learning.

A long term goal of mine is to help students gain new skills and self confidence to inspire future learning!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

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. The same thing can be said for algebra. 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 ...

Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!

I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

If you're stuck on concepts or just feeling totally overwhelmed by math in general, let's work together to find a way for these concepts to make sense and feel relevant for YOU. Once they click, they click, and I think you'll find that understanding and solidifying some foundational concepts will make the rest of your coursework much more manageable.

I had no idea when we signed up for SAT prep lessons with Julie, the level of help we would get. Julie went so far above and beyond what you would expect a tutor to do. During the lessons, she was always incredibly encouraging and focused. She explained things in a way that just made more sense. And then in between lessons, she sent problems like the ones we had trouble with to help solidify what was learned. She sent links to other sample problems and communicated regularly about the progress being made. I couldn’t rave enough about Julie!

It was such a pleasure working with Julie! I'd never taken a singing lesson before and Julie made me feel super comfortable. She encouraged me to keep trying when I felt like I was messing up, gave me tips and tricks that worked for me, and also kept it fun! :)

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!
