Honors Algebra (sometimes called Advanced Algebra) is an accelerated form of Algebra I designed to prepare students to study higher-level mathematics in subsequent years. The material taught in this course serves as a foundation that future instruction will build on, so it's very important to get it right. If you or your child are having difficulties following classroom lectures, Varsity Tutors can refer you to an experienced Honors Algebra tutor who is dedicated to helping you reach your academic goals.

Here are some of the concepts you may review during Honors Algebra tutoring sessions:

- Creating and solving linear equations
- Working with inequalities
- Factoring polynomials
- Quadratic systems
- Functions

Private Honors Algebra tutoring sessions give students the opportunity to build a personal rapport with their instructor. If you learn by doing, your tutor may provide practice problems until you understand a given concept. Alternatively, a tutor may provide a second lecture on a topic to give an auditory learner two chances to absorb the information. Your Honors Algebra tutor may also incorporate your interests into study sessions to make them more engaging. For example, functions may be taught in a business context to an aspiring entrepreneur. Likewise, sabermetrics (baseball math) may be an effective way to teach algebra to a sports fan.
