I have six years of experience helping students master Algebra I. I usually take a three-pronged approach to keep my students on track. First, I make sure students have a solid grasp of the material they are currently working on in class. Second, we go back and work on foundational skills they never fully mastered in previous years. Finally?although it may seem counterintuitive?we move ahead of their class and focus on new material. When the topics we've previewed do come up in school, my students can participate in class with confidence?asking questions, answering questions, and further ceme [more]

I am qualified in Algebra 1 having tutored this subject at the high school level. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are underpinned by this core math subject. I'm a "retired" professional looking at second career in my first passion: helping kids with math! I did some tutoring when I was an undergraduate at the University of Michigan. I loved not only teaching the technical aspects of math but also trying to connect and apply what we were learning to the real world. Being master's prepared and having a deep professional career, I believe I can be an even more effective tutor now given [more]

Algebra 1 is key to having success in 8th grade or into high school. It is very systematic and involves sequential steps in order to solve equations. Slope, intercepts, functions, graphing, manipulating equations, and other skills are what makes the subject very interesting. There are several tricks that can help remember esp. when dealing with slope. I have learned a lot of the tricks and they seem to work! I have 12 years of teaching experience. I will work with student and make contact with the teacher if the parent wishes to make sure the student is learning to the teacher's expectati [more]

I have frequently taught algebra in the schools when I substitute teach, so I am familiar with many of the misconceptions that students have when it comes to this subject. I have been working as a substitute school employee for a little over 17 years and as a tutor with WyzAnt since 2011. While I specialize in Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, and Precalculus, I have also taught reading comprehension and writing to a wide variety of students, some who are just beginning their education and others who are either continuing their education in college or seeking a GED. A number of students over th [more]

I am a retired Engineer who has tutored for the better part of 2 decades in Middle School, High School and some college level math courses, including algebra. I explain a concept in a way the student can grasp it, do a problem or two with them, have them do a problem or two, and then have them teach me how to do one to ensure they have it down before moving on. I have tutored students ages middle school to mid 60s going after a degree; with great success. Hi! My name is Tracy. I love tutoring kids and adults in Math. I am a retired Engineer (from Ford Motor Company) and an Engineering grad [more]

The essence of my teaching philosophy is to engage each and every student so that each ultimately attains a solid understanding of the course material. I strive to have every student develop the analytical and quantitative skills required to become successful practitioners of the subject matter taught. A key aspect of my teaching style is to clearly bridge from one concept to another while stressing connections between concepts and how a given concept embeds in a broader context. I also li...

I have taught all levels of K-12 math over the last several years, and Algebra is one of my favorite subjects to teach. I can help students understand the relationships between numbers, formulas, and graphs to provide them with a strong foundation as they learn higher-level math concepts. *FREE CONSULTATION* I encourage all interested students and parents to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation regarding my tutoring services. I develop individualized tutoring and study plans for all of my students to provide them with the exact instruction that they need. Scheduling a consultation al [more]

CRLA Certification Level 1 & 2 I am an Industrial and Operations Engineering PhD candidate at the University of Michigan working in applied operations research in healthcare. Here I really enjoy mentoring and working with undergraduate and master students on research, coursework or just navigating college and graduate school. Aside from school I enjoy anything water related in the summer (e.g., swimming, tubing, paddle boarding) and winter sports such as skiing in the winter. I also am a big fan of obstacle course races li... [more]

I have been tutoring in algebra the longest. I have at least one or two students per year who need help in this subject. My standard method is to work on homework together, go over tests and quizzes, and to be sure to do chapter reviews before all tests. A former student of mine said, "Maggie is such an enthusiastic and dependable tutor. She helped me with my AP coursework and college prep my senior year of high school. Maggie always finds ways to make schoolwork relatable to your life, and that's what makes studying with her so fun. My tutoring sessions with Maggie still pay off today, as man [more]

I have had a variety of experiences that shape my approach to teaching and learning. Certified to teach both Math and Spanish, I began teaching in Chicago before moving to Milan, Italy, where I worked as a private tutor. I then settled in my home state of Michigan and actively participated in my children's education. I started a farmers market business to sell my trash-free alternatives. I am passionate about purposeful living. One of my favorite places to be is my backyard which I cal... [more]
