Bringing Success with Algebra Within Reach

By the time of night your teenager opens up the algebra textbook and asks that excellent question about exponents or scientific notation, you may have a hard time explaining (much less remembering) how to go about solving for x. The good news is, if you need to send out that math tutoring S.O.S., we’ve got your back!

Our algebra 1 tutors target exactly what your teenager needs to learn, guiding and motivating with clear instructions and interactive lessons. Plus, we’ll make sure your teen masters each algebra concept before moving on.

  • Solve problems involving radicals and right triangles
  • Use if-then statements and related statements in reasoning
  • Find a length in a complex figure using right triangles
  • Compare length, surface area and volume of similar figures
