I am a tutor who taught algebra 1 as a classroom teacher in a private school. I work with students of all ability levels to help them understand and enjoy this branch of mathematics. I have been teaching this course for over ten years, and I feel confident in assisting students with their homework, and with the review of important concepts. In addition, I assist students with preparing for the ACT and SAT exams, and I know exactly what algebra elements students must master to perform well on the math sections of those tests. [more]

I find that students have a wide range of needs and learning styles. Some students just need a little extra boost to get them through a tough spot in a class. Some students need someone to sit with them while doing homework to keep them on track. Some students need coaching on how to even approach the study Math or Physics. Some students learn better by having concepts explained clearly. Some students learn better if they are asked a series of leading questions, so that they find the answers ... [more]

*At this time, I am only accepting ACT students. Please read my full bio for a description of how I approach preparing students for the exam. In his eighth year of tutoring, Thore has logged thousands of one-on-one hours with students. Named a National Merit Scholar in 2008, he holds a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and a Bachelor of Arts in Norwegian from St. Olaf College, graduating summa cum laude and with distinction in both degrees. He is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa, an acad... [more]

I have over 4,000 hours experience in tutoring math including many successful hours tutoring Algebra at all levels. I have a Master?s degree from Stanford University in Applied Mathematics. I am very good at helping students gain confidence by approaching Algebra problems one step at a time. I have a great love for mathematics and love to impart this to my students. I have taught as an adjunct instructor at Augsburg College. I am a skilled, experienced and practical math tutor. I tutor 7 days a week. I have experience tutoring both high school and college students. I have a Masters degree fro [more]

I taught algebra 1 and prealgebra for a number of years in a Minneapolis charter high school. It was great fun helping students move from memorizing operations to understanding how numbers work together. I have lots of tricks and tips to help speed up that understanding. It is very satisfying to see students light up when things start to make sense! I love working one-on-one with students! My passion is creating learning settings where students can shine and grow. Students are encouraged to follow their own interests. While I like tutoring both math and music, I am particularly interested in t [more]

I taught AP & IB Physics for six years in the late 90's, with exceptional success for my students on all AP and IB exams. I've also taught regular physics (as opposed to college prep). And I taught Algebra 1 through Calculus in rural Louisiana through the Teach For America program before I got licensed to teach physics. These and other teaching jobs involved quite a bit of one-on-one work with students. Even though I was known for guiding my students to good results on the AP and IB physic... [more]

I have helped students to succeed in high school Algebra (levels 1, 2, and 3) and college level advanced Algebra courses. I also have experience working with adults who need to pass a pre-requisite course or test for their graduate programs in nursing, veterinary sciences, and other fields. I look forward to helping you meet your goals! Helping students reach new levels of success is my passion! I adjust my support to fit each student's individual goals and learning style. I have a B.A. from Smith College and have completed several graduate courses in education (including assessment and interv [more]

I have worked with many students of different ages on algebra. I understand the parts that cause difficulties for most students and am very patient with explaining new concepts. Past students and parents have described me as "approachable but efficient". From day one the work that we do will be focused and personalized in order to get the outcomes that you are looking for. No two students are the same, and it doesn't make sense that any two students should get the same approach to their education or to their test prep. I won't rush your student through content that they half understand, and I [more]

For many students, Algebra 1 is the first time they struggle with math because it is the first time that students are using an entirely abstract system of notation. Whereas numbers have exactly one meaning that can be connected to physical objects such as fingers or other counters, variables have no set meaning, and change in different contexts. The true meaning of variables can be understood through an exploration of changing patterns. Those patterns can be tied to visual representations, stories, real-world problems, music or other methods that resonate with the student. Algebra 1 is also f [more]

I am an experienced professional tutor who has been tutoring for over 15 years. In addition, I recently worked for five years for a private company that specialized in ACT and SAT tutoring. I have experience in-person and online; and teaching small groups, and 1-on-1. In addition to all portions of the GRE, GMAT, ACT and the SAT (including the newest versions), I have experience tutoring high-school level Spanish, Economics, Business, Finance, Algebra, Geometry, Literature, History, and AP...
