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 precalculus is imperative for a mastery of calculus. I have been successfully helping my students raise their grade in precalculus for the last six years. I help my students learn precalculus by emphasizing the fundamentals and ensuring they have a sufficient understanding of the theorems upon which precalculus is built.

Private Pre Calculus Teacher

Precalculus sounds intimidating, but it is actually algebra 3. I’ve tutored many high school students, college students, and university students in core concepts like functions, graphing functions, trigonometry, and an introduction to calculus. I also walk students through a complete algebra review if they need to refresh their knowledge or have difficult concepts re-explained. For those preparing for calculus, I show them its connection to precalculus and why it is so critical for them to really understand and remember these concepts. Another course I am familiar with is advanced math, which is precalculus with trigonometry.

About Natalie

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.

My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

Private Pre Calculus Teacher

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science, and I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus (including Precalculus) for 5 years. I have received perfect scores on both SAT Math, ACT Math, and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test). I have taken AP Calculus BC while in high school, and I have taken Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT, and I actively participated in many math competitions through elementary, middle, and high schools.

Before the lessons, I like to talk with parents, students, and/or teachers to fully gauge what they have been struggling with and how to best help them. Then I identify the student's gap in knowledge while helping them complete their homework and give them additional drilling problems as needed to help them fully master the materials and do well on their tests. I always carry around books containing extra problems depending on the students' levels and goals. I often introduce relevant SAT Math 2 problems to help

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer

"I took my first math course with Professor Slepoi at Union County College back in Fall 2015. Professor Slepoi was very interested in math and often expressed his interest in the material. Up to now, I still remember how passionate he is about math and as an Engineering Student, I began to realize why math is so important. His passion for math translated to me the urge to dig deeper into math material and has made me pursue a minor in applied mathematics."

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, often find precalculus to be the more difficult of the two subjects, as calcul

...

us significantly reduces the workload required for solving equations. 

Because precalculus can be a tricky subject to master, students often turn to a precalculus tutor for additional help. Sometimes students just need a little extra instruction on a formula. Or perhaps they’re struggling to perform well on their pre-cal exams. Whatever the case, a pre-cal tutor can get you where you want to go in your studies.

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. At TakeLessons, we feature a wide range of professional and experienced precalculus tutors who are here to help you ace this subject.

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. Regardless of the reason, no student should get behind in their studies, and that’s where a pre-cal tutor can help. 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 precalculus 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. 

Our precalculus tutors are patient and attentive. Because you’re receiving one-on-one instruction, you can ask as many questions as you like and practice as long as you need. There is no rush when it comes to learning and understanding this tricky subject. Your tutor will help you break down formulas and math problems until they make sense to you. They are encouraging and will remain with you every step of the way.

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. Our pre-cal tutors are experts at assessing your skills and getting you where you need to be. 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

The Benefits of an Online Pre-Cal Tutor

Have you noticed how prevalent online learning seems to be these days? Everywhere we look, schools and institutions are offering online courses and curriculums. And it’s not just at the university level either. Many elementary and high schools are now offering virtual classroom settings, too. Given this new remote platform, students and instructors are finding themselves with more flexibility. They can learn where they want and, oftentimes, they can choose when they want, too.

Here at TakeLessons, we understand the convenience of online learning. That’s why we offer online tutoring sessions. Our tutoring sessions are flexible and hassle-free. With these sessions, you can pick an online pre-cal tutor and receive instruction 100% over the internet. As long as you can connect to the internet, simply log on using your smartphone, laptop, or computer and webcam. Gone are the days of driving to a classroom or meeting with your instructor in person. With our virtual classrooms, you can learn from the comfort of your own home.

And the best part? You get to decide when you want to take your tutoring sessions. Maybe you learn better first thing in the day. You can find a calculus tutor who offers early morning sessions. Prefer to sign on later in the evening after you’ve put the kids to bed? Plenty of our tutors are available at night. From weekday sessions to weekend lessons, you’re sure to find a pre-cal tutor who can accommodate your schedule.
