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.

Jessie is an excellent vocal teacher! She is very sweet and patient and is able to identify what needs to be corrected and clearly communicates how to overcome the issue at hand. It is amazing how she transformed my voice! She is also very flexible when it comes to rescheduling an appointment. I am very glad to have found her!

Jessie has assisted me with voice training and improvement. She has tirelessly and cheerfully helped me to learn the music so I can participate in the community chorus. I would recommend her to anyone looking for musical training.

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!

My son is really inspired by Andrew. He makes it so much fun, and DJ is progressing well under his guidance and encouragement. Andrew has been very good about making sure that DJ is learning the stuff he wants to focus on, not just being a slave to an instruction book. We highly recommend him.

Choose me as your Algebra tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Algebra is an important milestone in a student's development. The abstract nature of this material can be burdensome for many; however, with sufficient training WE CAN overcome these technical difficulties. My approach to teaching these ideas is to keep it simple, and use relevant examples that apply to daily life.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

Algebra is widespread!

It is an incredibly powerful idea that is marvelous in its applications and brilliant in its theory. Scientists use algebra to describe cell growth, human behavior, as well as electrical circuits. Engineers use it to construct jet airplanes, bridges, and smartphones.

Algebra is required to graduate from high school, college, and to enlist in the military. It appears on many standardized tests including SAT, ACT, GED, ASVAB, GMAT, and GRE. Nursing, computer programming, and aviation are just some of the careers that require an ...

Amazing tutor! He will explain the material in different ways until it clicks for you no matter how long it takes. As someone who has always struggled in math and had many math tutors from 1st grade until the present in college I would say Paul is one of if not the best tutor I have had.

I had Paul tutor my daughter with an online session. Paul was amazing! My daughter started understanding the lesson within 10 minutes of the tutoring skype. Paul spoke so clearly and explained each step and solution very thoroughly. The next day my daughter took her math final exam and passed it with the highest grade in the class and she continues to excel in her math lessons with a weekly session from Paul. I could not be more appreciative of how he has helped my daughter not only pass math but enjoy math! He is wonderful and Prompt and I highly recommend him!

I am currently a tutor at a Mathnasium. Frequently, I see students who would benefit from more individualized attention that I cannot give them in a group setting. I specialize in addressing gaps in an individual's foundation and areas of confusion. Then I address those areas of misunderstanding through custom-made questions, drills, examples, and other learning aids. My first goal is to facilitate an integral understanding of the subject matter that can be retained in the long term.

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 ...

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!
