How can Intermediate Algebra tutoring help you?

Intermediate algebra is one of the most important math courses of a college-bound student's academic career. It is fundamental if you are looking to pursue a degree program in science. Chemistry and physics utilize intermediate algebra regularly, and the foundations of algebra are required for more advanced science courses as well. Furthermore, even if you are looking to pursue a degree in the social sciences, such as psychology, sociology, or economics, you must, at the very least, understand intermediate algebra and be able to apply those skills to data. Quadratic functions, rates of change, systems of equations, and graphing are all essential skills for college-level study.

Despite its importance, intermediate algebra can seem like a nightmare. Many students have difficulty with elementary algebra, and these difficulties carry over into intermediate algebra. If you are struggling in intermediate algebra, there is no reason to feel alone. Issues with finding the value of x, graphing lines, and solving equations only intensify in intermediate and advanced coursework. Thus, you may feel completely lost from day one. And even if you are confident in your algebra abilities, complex new concepts can still leave you confused. Conic sections, rational equations, and logarithms are three specific areas that tend to leave many intermediate algebra students without confidence in their abilities.

If you are struggling with intermediate algebra, or never fully mastered elementary algebra, Varsity Tutors can help by connecting you with an intermediate algebra tutor anywhere in the country. When you first call, you'll be put in touch with our educational directors, who can build a precise student profile that can tell a tutor what you need and how you need it, including your learning style, schedule, course syllabus, and more. When your potential tutor contacts you, they will work with you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, which will help to form your custom-tailored study guide. Your tutor uses this flexible guide to keep you on track for success while ensuring that you are progressing at your natural pace, rather than feeling rushed.

Tutors have strong backgrounds in math and teaching, and they know how to work with students who have a variety of different learning styles. They realize that the one-size-fits-all approach used in a classroom setting is not the best for every student. Intermediate algebra tutoring programs can be fully customized to meet your unique learning needs. You can work with your tutor to craft a learning plan that focuses on areas that you are having trouble with, and move forward when there are concepts that you have already mastered. Unlike a classroom environment, you control the speed at which the material is covered. You don't have to worry about falling behind in your class, disrupting it with questions, or anything else that may plague you in a traditional setting.

Intermediate algebra tutoring sessions can be held in your home or in another location that is convenient and comfortable for you, whether that is a library, bookstore, or coffee shop. You can also choose the times for your sessions, whether you prefer afternoons, evenings, or weekends. You can also have face-to-face online sessions through our live learning platform as well, so you can work with your tutor when it is most convenient for you, even if your schedule is full of other commitments. Individual tutoring is set up with you as the sole focus. If you need to meet more frequently during the week, you can! If you need to spend a tutoring session preparing for an approaching test or a project, you can do that, too. Don't go another day feeling lost with intermediate algebra concepts. Call Varsity Tutors today to get help connecting with an intermediate algebra tutor in your area.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"The student and I continued to review concepts that jumped out at him as tricky or confusing. We walked straight through the chapter summaries and when he didn't recognize a topic I asked him to confirm with the teacher that they definitely hadn't covered it in class. We solidified his foundations just in time for the test."

★★★★★

"Today we reviewed for her final. We covered coordinate geometry, including plotting points, reflections, translations, and dilations. We also discussed rational vs. irrational numbers, and scientific notation. She did well. We also discussed inequalities but will work on them again next time. "

★★★★★

"The student and I continued to work on probability and combinatorics. We finished one homework assignment that consisted mainly of the probability of the union and intersection of sample spaces. The student is starting to understand the concepts a little better each time. We used Venn Diagrams in an application and were able to complete a challenging question. She was able to explain the entire process to me by the end of the session."

★★★★

"Today the student went over solving inequalities. We worked extensively with writing up algebraic equations to represent word problem situations. The student also reviewed how to work with negative numbers in addition/subtraction and multiplication/division situations."

★★★★★

"The student and I went over the review given by her teacher. For each topic, we re-capped the important points and key concepts. I then had her practice reapplying the ideas with my oversight, and asked her to do a few specific problems from each chapter."

★★★★★

"The student and I looked through her math notebook from the most recent school year. Using Mandarin with a little bit of English, I asked her what was hardest and easiest for her in math. She mentioned that her main problem was understanding the English math terminology. We made flashcards using the +, -, x, and division symbols with associated English terms. We reviewed adding fractions (changing denominators), reducing fractions, comparing fractions, and mixed number addition. "

★★★★★

"The student practiced his factoring of polynomials as well as dividing polynomials. Examples were modeled and repeated with explanation. At the end of the session the student was given practice problems to complete independently."

★★★★★

"The student got back all of her old math tests to prepare for her math final next week. We spent today going over some of the ones on which she didn't do as well as she'd hoped. We spent some time going over her most recent test. By the end of the session I felt she was confidently tackling the problems and figuring out whether they were addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problems. We also worked on dependent and independent variables and how to graph them (independent on x-axis, dependent on y-axis) and on finding greatest common factors and greatest common multiples. We still have a lot of math material to go over tomorrow, but I feel that she is becoming much more confident in her approach-- she seems to be breezing through problems that would have been a struggle for her just last week."

★★★★★

"We reviewed what her goals were (to prepare her to take a placement test that will place her at the College Algebra level). I wrote out a plan that we can start with; we began with the basics, reviewing some Prealgebra. The student discussed her math weaknesses and concerns. With her attitude and determination, I think we can get her ready! I have been digging out my extra teaching materials and books to help guide us through the summer.
I'll bring some Prealgebra and Algebra materials (worksheets, final reviews) and have some websites ready to share at our next session (Thur 5/29)."

★★★★★

"Chapter 5, Section 3: Laws of Exponents, Product Rule, Quotient Rule, Power Rule, Negative exponents, Zero rule, One Rule. All online math homework was completed during our session. Some classwork that was left to do online was also completed during our session. Toward the end of the session, the student was able to do almost all problem without any guidance."

★★★★★

"We covered composite functions and how they interact with the domain of the resulting function. We briefly discussed testing strategies. I left him to work on more example problems from the sections we covered."

★★★★★

"In this section we began to look at how to find the domain of a function with a variable in the denominator. I explained to the student how if the denominator of any of the terms in a function is 0 then that term is undefined, and the value of X that produces that denominator is not part of the domain of the function. We practiced finding the domains of functions; solving equations with binomials in the denominator; and checking to see if one of the answers to the equation was not part of the domain of the equation."
