Marwa has been very patient and engaging with my seventh grader who is challenged with math primarily due to dyslexia. So far, it seems to be a great student/tutor match and I’m eager to see how this propels my daughter forward towards a successful year. Thank you Marwa for your dedication and excellent work!
Laura Gatto
Marwa helped my son on very short notice understand material from his advanced 8th grade algebra class. He felt such relief after spending time with her and gaining a better grasp of the material. We will definitely be booking Marwa again!

About Algebra

Many describe algebra as the part of math in which you start using letters. In algebra, students learn mathematical symbols and the rules for using and manipulating them. In addition to simple arithmetic, algebra forms the basis of all mathematics, unifying everything you study beyond algebra, including geometry, statistics and probability, precalculus, and calculus. 

Students often work with algebra tutors when they find themselves struggling or when they're ahead in math and want to challenge themselves to learn more. If you've recently started learning algebra and have found the concepts difficult to grasp or if you continue to study hard, but aren't performing as well on homework assignments and tests, then an algebra teacher could help you!

Here at TakeLessons, we fe

...

ature a wide range of experienced algebra tutors who can help you reach your math goals. You’ll find tutors who specialize in high school level math and college algebra tutors who focus on university-level concepts.

The sooner you get private algebra help, the better off you'll be. Developing a solid foundation in algebra will empower you to take your mathematics skills to any level you desire. Discover all the benefits of signing up with a TakeLessons algebra tutor.

Why It's Important to Learn Algebra

Some people can't get enough numbers. For others, mathematics is an unsightly blight on an otherwise enjoyable class schedule. No matter which camp you fall into, algebra is an essential subject to learn. The concepts learned in algebra class form the basis for advanced mathematical studies.

Algebra isn't studied solely for the sake of mathematics and the love of numbers. Algebra's also vital to academic and professional fields like chemistry, biology, physics, economics, finance, engineering, architecture, computer programming, medicine, and even cooking. Algebra makes unknown variables known, and in this way, it's a form of mystery solving. 

Learning algebra not only improves a person's ability to do math, it also strengthens problem solving portions of the brain. You'll improve your critical thinking skills and logic. Once you reach a thorough understanding of algebra, you might even come to appreciate its inherent beauty. 

Because algebra can play such a big role in our lives, it’s important to have a strong understanding of the subject. Whether you’re enrolled in a college algebra course or you’re simply interested in brushing up on your math skills, a college algebra tutor can help. No matter where you are in your math journey. Your tutor will work with you to get you where you want to go.

The Benefits of an Online Algebra Tutor

Remember the days when you had to physically go to a classroom to receive tutoring or instruction in person? Those days feel long ago now, thanks to the popularity of online learning. It seems everyone is turning to online classes, courses, and tutoring lessons now more than ever. Many elementary schools, high schools, and universities have even flipped to 100% remote learning platforms. And it’s no wonder. Students and instructors alike enjoy online classes because they give you the flexibility and freedom to learn on your own terms. Here at TakeLessons, we offer online tutoring sessions. Our online algebra tutors provide one-on-one instruction in a virtual classroom setting. To log on, all you need is internet access and a smartphone, laptop, or computer with a webcam. The best part is you can sign on wherever you want--no need to meet in person. Join your lessons in your kitchen, living room, home office, or even your backyard. In addition to offering convenient and hassle-free sessions, our college algebra tutors accommodate your schedule. Whether you’d prefer to be tutored on the weekends, after work, or in the morning before school, you can find an online algebra tutor who can adjust to the times that work best for you.

The Best Way to Learn Algebra and What You'll Study in Classes

It's easy to find plenty of free algebra classes and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with a private algebra teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive the kind of personalized instruction and attention that isn't possible in a larger class setting or when watching online videos. You'll receive immediate feedback and answers to your specific questions. Maybe you’re looking to ace your next exam or acquiring some tips for solving algebra word problems. Are you stuck on quadratic equations, or are integers giving you problems? Whatever it is you need to work on, your online algebra tutor will accommodate accordingly.

No two private lessons are alike. Your private teacher will completely customize each lesson to meet your needs. For example, algebra lessons for children differ greatly from algebra classes for adults in terms of course content and teaching methods. In private lessons, you'll learn algebra, using your preferred learning styles and focus on the topics with which you need the most assistance. What’s more, your algebra tutor can assess your skill sets to determine the best approach for helping you master this topic. With a private algebra tutor, you'll overcome challenges and pick up new concepts quickly. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner, Middle School, or Early High School Algebra

Beginner algebra students should have a solid understanding of basic arithmetic concepts. In beginner lessons, your private tutor will slowly and thoroughly introduce you to the foundational concepts and rules of algebra. Your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Pre-algebra concepts
  • Integers
  • Introduction to equations and inequalities
  • Single-step equations
  • Introduction to functions and graphs

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate or High School Algebra

With a basic understanding of algebraic principles, you'll be ready to move onto more complex algebra concepts. In intermediate classes, your teacher might cover the following subjects:

  • Algebra 1, algebra 2, and precalculus
  • Numbers (radicals, scientific notation, absolute values, exponential expressions, factorials, complex, and imaginary)
  • Measurement (rates and units)
  • Solving equations and rational inequalities
  • Equations, expressions, functions, and formulas

Sample Curriculum for Advanced or College-Level Algebra

If you're poised to become an algebra wiz, then advanced classes are for you. Advanced algebra students learn the concepts that begin to approach the level of beginner calculus. You'll work algebra up to the point at which calculus steps in, giving you a thorough understanding of all these mathematical concepts. Your algebra tutor might cover the following topics:

  • CLEP Exam preparation for college algebra placement
  • Linear and quadratic equations
  • 2nd degree parabolic functions
  • Exponents and logarithms
  • Matrices and systems of linear equations

How to Find an Algebra Tutor Near You

If you or your child needs help with algebra homework, a private tutor can help you! Finding an algebra teacher on TakeLessons is easy. A quick search will direct you to a long list of experienced and qualified teachers who offer private tutoring online and in-person to all levels of algebra students. Before choosing the teacher who's right for you, be sure to read several profiles and reviews left by other algebra students. 

The price of algebra classes varies, but you'll find that private algebra lessons are well-worth the investment. You'll overcome challenges and pick up new concepts quickly. Plus, with so many teachers to choose from, you'll be able to find one who fits your budget and schedule. Studying with a private tutor, you'll gain confidence and improve your grades fast! Because we’re confident that you’ll enjoy your tutoring experience, we offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for all students on their first session.

Algebra for Kids

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!
