Algebra tutoring for everyone. No matter where you are now in your algebra class, you can get the help you need. Algebra tutoring is available for you online.
Algebra tutoring with mcstutoring is straightforward. At first, we will work on your algebra homework. You will write the problem and I will guide you through it. This approach is more helpful than others. The collaborative nature helps you understand quickly that someone cares about your algebra and can help. Usually, you will appreciate the nonjudgemental aspect and relax as you make progress.
At first, I might do the majority of the writing. This is normal, especially if you are struggling.
Once you regain your math mojo, this changes. You will do the majority of the writing. Then, you will set up the math questions and show your work. I’ll jump in only if you have a question, make a mistake, or could work more efficiently.
You can even post a screenshot or homework pdf. We can also work on test corrections. The goal is for you to understand the process of solving algebra problems while maximizing points. This way, you gain confidence as your grade improves.
Our relationship will develop over time. As you become familiar, you’ll be more emboldened to ask questions, let me know when a particular approach isn’t working, or even let me know when I’ve made a mistake. That last one is great, because it shows that you’re paying attention and are confident enough to speak up.
How Algebra Tutoring Works
Why do I want to see your math work? Sometimes you can learn an easier or faster approach. I’ll also recommend easy corrections.
Over time, you’ll realize I’m on your side and want you to perform well in class. It’s important to you to know someone cares about the details of your work. Further, you will learn that you can learn algebra. It just takes effort and care.
Regarding algebra tutoring, you have a voice in the process. Most students appreciate the collaborative nature of this work. Think of it more as the two of us working together rather than a one-way data dump. As you gradually realize you can learn algebra, the more power you will have to master it!
Having a Sense of Humor about Algebra
You want to find x, I can help you find x, x-squared, square root of x.
You want to know function of x & y…I help you…whether it’s linear, quadratic, or exponential.
You don’t like x? I help you find y, z, or a, b, or c. No variable too tricky.
Calculators?! You want to know calculators? You can learn TI-36. Not just for numbers, but also to find x.
You can use TI 36 to solve quadratics or system of equations…faster than a TI 84.
TI 84? You need help with TI 84? I have hundreds of TI84 videos.
Heck, I even have dozens of TI84 programs. Don’t get me started….
Am I crazy. No, you’re crazy. I only wanted a Pepsi.
Digital Record of Your Math Work
You will have a digital copy of your work you can access from any device. This could be a laptop, iPad or even a phone.
Despite any fears you may have, you will likely appreciate the easy access to your work. This allows you to access your notes anywhere, any time. Right before a test, this is extremely helpful. You can see your own notes, in your own handwriting. If there is something important for you to learn, you can highlight it in bright pink. That way, you will find it faster.
One student even showed his work from his phone to his teacher. She accepted it for credit.* This saved him the need to transcribe it. He was ecstatic!
*Please note that this type of math teacher is rare. For this particular student’s next class he had to print out his notes. Still beat having to transcribe them, though.
Another advantage to using an online whiteboard is that you can post images onto your board between sessions. This way, we can both view any specific questions you have during your next session.
Scheduling Tutoring Only When You Want Or Need It
With the online scheduler, you can set algebra tutoring sessions to be as long as you need. Also, you can set your math tutoring sessions as seldom or as often as you need.
Having been busy in high school myself, I realize that your schedule can change weekly. The scheduler allows you to set sessions when you need them, as you need them. You can even set a session the same day. You just need to do so at least 4 hours in advance.
In the case of an algebra emergency, you can text me. While you might not be able to meet with me for a full hour that same day, you can likely set up a same-day session for 30 minutes.
You might be rather busy with all of your school and extracurricular commitments. In this case, you might want to sample online math tutoring. Most students who’ve tried this option use it almost exclusively. The rest will use online math tutoring only when they are time-crunched. Either way, you ought to try it.
