My grandson was having difficulty with beginning Algebra, until Marwa began
tutoring him. Within 2 weeks, he gained confidence and his grades went from
F to A. Marwa gave him the support and skills he needed to tackle this subject
and move forward. My grandson tells me often how he appreciates Marwa and
the hours she spends with him weekly.She really cares about her students and
wants them to do well. She's very smart, considerate and patient.She
understands teens and their learning styles.

Private Pre Calculus Teacher

As an bioengineer, calculus is the bedrock of much of the mathematics I use to solve physical problems in biomechanics and fluid mechanics. A rock-solid foundation in pre-calculus is imperative for a mastery of calculus. I have been successfully helping my students raise their grade in pre-calculus for the last four years. I help my students learn pre-calculus by emphasizing the fundamentals and ensuring they have a sufficient understanding of the theorems upon which pre-calculus is built.

Colin is a wonderful instructor. I am so pleased with how much my daughter has learned and how much confidence she has gained. He is quick to respond to any questions.

Colin is a fabulous teacher. He worked with my children as they prepared for their AP Calculus exam a few years back, and we enlisted his tutorage as my son prepared for his Calculus 3 exam this year.
Colin knows his material. He is patient and ensures the student is keeping pace with him as he explains the methodology. He takes the time necessary to ensure the student knows the material and is able to follow the explanations. As anyone who has studied math knows, you can't rush the process. Each step is a crucial foundation for the next.
Thank you Colin!

Private Pre Calculus Teacher

Precalculus is an important subject that allows a student to move to calculus. I help my students to make this transition as smooth as possible. We discuss not only different ways to solve problems but why we solve problems this way and why this way is working. It usually allows students to create a path to the solution even they don't remember how to solve this particular problem. My students not only improve the grades but what is even more important, they feel better about math in general.

Private Pre-Calculus Lessons Near You

Precalculus is a course that combines the mathematical principles acquired in algebra and geometry into a course that prepares students for the later study of calculus. Most students take precalculus in the 11th or 12th grades (junior or senior year of high school). Sometimes, however, a student might not encounter precalculus until studying math at the college level. In precalculus, students learn about polynomials, complex numbers, composite functions, trigonometry, vectors, and matrices. Precalculus prepares students for the study of calculus.

In precalculus, math students approach the limit of math's abilities without calculus. In fact, many who have taken precalculus and gone on to study calculus, actually find precalculus to be the more difficult of the two subjects, as calculus significantly reduces the workload required for solving equations. The challenge of precalculus and creating a solid foundation for advanced mathematical study provides all the more reason to learn precalculus with the aid of a private precalculus tutor. 

Why Seek Professional Pre Calculus Help?

Math is a cumulative subject, meaning understanding everything you learn is essential to understanding future topics in mathematics. If you miss early topics, then you'll have a difficult time comprehending what you learn later in math. If you find yourself or your child struggling with mathematics, it's essential to get extra help — outside of the classroom — as soon as possible to prevent cumulative confusion. 

Difficulty with precalculus might be due to a lack of thorough learning in earlier, prerequisite courses, such as algebra, or it could point to more recent challenges in grasping precalculus topics. A professional tutor will work with you or your child to determine the student's individual strengths and weaknesses in the subject to ensure an effective course of action for tutoring. 

The Best Way to Learn Pre-Calculus and What You'll Study in Classes

Although you can find lots of free pre-calculus lessons and tutorials online, the best way to get pre-calculus help is from a private pre-calculus teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply can't be found in a textbook or larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and improve quickly, while focusing on the precalculus topics that challenge you most. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers customize every private course keeping in mind the student's goals, existing knowledge, and comprehension, and preferred learning styles. For example, pre-calculus classes for adults in college differ from pre-calculus lessons for children in high school, in terms of course content and teaching methods. No matter your age or abilities, you'll stay motivated and interested while learning at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Pre Calculus

If you're learning the basics of precalculus, then beginner lessons are right for you. Beginner precalculus students should already have a strong foundation in algebra. In these lessons, your pre-calculus tutor will introduce you to the basics of this mathematical subject. Depending on the areas with which you need the most help, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Real numbers and sets
  • Algebraic and fractional expressions
  • Equations, formulas, modeling with equations, and inequalities
  • Coordinate geometry and graphic solutions

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Pre-Calculus

When you're comfortable with the basics of precalculus, then you'll move onto studying intermediate topics in preparation for advanced precalculus. Your teacher might choose to cover the following:

  • Lines, functions, applied functions, and modeling
  • Polynomial functions and graphs
  • Complex numbers
  • Rational vs. exponential functions

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Pre-Calculus

Once you're comfortable with intermediate topics in precalculus, you'll move into advanced topics, which set the stage for the study of calculus. These topics take you to the limit (pun intended) of what mathematics can do without calculus. Topics covered depend on the student's interests, syllabus, and goals, but your teacher might cover the following: 

  • Logarithmic functions, equations, and the laws of logarithms
  • Trigonometric functions of real numbers
  • Trigonometric functions of angles
  • Analytic trigonometry and geometry

How to Find a Pre-Calculus Teacher Near You
