How can a Pre-Calculus tutor help you?

Precalculus courses move at a fast pace and touch on exercises from linear algebra, mathematical analysis, and trigonometry. Because these courses require some prior knowledge, students may benefit from a professional tutor to fill-in any learning gaps. To start the process, let our educational directors at Varsity Tutors put you in touch with a qualified, highly skilled precalculus tutor in Raleigh-Durham, NC, who may help you work to understand the skills needed to ace the course.

The advantage of an expert precalculus tutor is that you won't be left behind as the course progresses from topic to topic. Right from the start, your tutor may assess your skills, strengths, and weaknesses, and create a personal study plan just for you. The plan is flexible and may change when you understand a new concept, or need to revisit prior lessons.

Most importantly, your tutor may explain what it takes to ramp up your test performance and scores on any of North Carolina's End of Grade (EOG) and End of Course (EOC) standardized tests. With improved test scores, you'll accelerate your progress in achieving the ultimate goals of college admission and/or choice of career opportunities. A skilled precalculus tutor in Raleigh-Durham may help you do your very best on test day.

Your precalculus course may introduce you to new terms you'll need to know. So you may understand polar coordinates, sequences, polynomials, and more, your tutor may explain the functions and uses with illustrated examples. If you need to brush up on foundational skills, like adding and dividing fractions, your tutor may bring you up to speed. Because you may progress at your own pace, you may ask questions at any point. Your tutor is an expert at precalculus math and gives you the time and full attention to succeed.

As you increase your proficiency, you might gain new skills working with complex numbers, piecewise functions, absolute values, and slopes of lines. As you build on prior knowledge, the learning may accelerate as you understand how precalculus works. As your skills increase, you may actually anticipate how to approach the next exercises. Because your tutor sessions have no outside interruptions, your time to proficiency may shrink as you add value to your skillsets. Perhaps the best benefit of working with a private tutor in Raleigh-Durham is the flexibility of scheduling each session at a place and time of the student's choosing. Convenient locations may be the student's home, the local library, or school. Keeping up with technology, tutoring sessions may also be held online, using a face-to-face online learning platform. Varsity tutors makes the student experience convenient, casual, and enriching. For assistance in connecting with a qualified professional tutor in Raleigh-Durham, NC, contact Varsity Tutors today.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"We covered all of the introductory trigonometric identities, where they came from and how to use them in problems. The student was familiar with all of the identities, and talking through how to use them in a problem was a big part of what we covered. The material she wanted to practice was equations that involved multiple variables inside of trigonometric functions, which we were able to solve a few of at the end of the session."

★★★★★

"The student and I had a shorter session today because she didn't have any new material or homework. We did some review questions from previous sections as she has a test next week on applied trig. We will have a chance to meet again before her exam, so I think she should be in very good shape by then. "

★★★★★

"We continued reviewing for the student's pre-calc final. We covered domain, range, trigonometric functions and properties of logarithms. She asked specific questions about the study guide and seemed to understand what we worked on. I left her with practice problems that were related to her study guide. "

★★★★★

"We went over his review for chapter 5 test on Friday. His midterm is on Tuesday. I will meet with him on Monday instead of Tuesday in order to prepare for his midterm. We went over the law of sines and the law of cosines, when to use them, and how to use them in word problems. We also went over how to set up a word problem. "

★★★★★

"We worked on trig addition/subtraction formulas and double angle and power-reducing formulas. The pupil's understanding of the trig material is improving, and I provided direction for problem-solving."

★★★★★

"During this session, the student and I reviewed arithmetic and geometric sequences/series. We studied the formulas required to find the nth term of a series and to calculate the sum of n terms. Further, we worked problems from his textbook."

★★★★★

"We reviewed for an upcoming cumulative exam by going over problems involving real numbers, absolute value, order of operations, and simplifying algebraic expressions. By the end of the session, the student was able to solve the problems correctly."

★★★★★

"The student and I worked through some of his review for his test tomorrow. We reviewed concepts involving the definition of a function and Domain and Range. He had been a little rusty on some of this, but it came back to him in due course. I am confident he will do well on his upcoming exam."

★★★★★

"During this session, we focused on polynomials. We worked on graphing polynomials based on their equations by identifying x and y intercepts. We also talked about how to use a graph to generate the equation of a polynomial and discussed some word problems that relied on understanding directly and inversely proportional relationships."

★★★★★

"Graphs of rational functions. Determined the x and y intercepts and locations of horizontal, vertical, and slant asymptotes for rational functions, and then used these features along with other computed points to sketch graphs. Also, determined the equations of graphed rational functions and reviewed polynomial long division. When he meets with teacher this week he will seek clarification about whether he needs to determine if the graphs will cross the asymptotes before following their end member behavior."

★★★★★

"Today we covered Remainder Theorem, Graphing involving vertical, horizontal and slant asymptotes as well as transformations, Theory on Synthetic Division and Descartes Rules of Signs, Average Rate of Change, and Mathematical Induction.
The student was very cooperative and knowledgeable. He's fully capable if given the necessary information; currently, he lacks some knowledge of theory and concepts, but it's nothing a bit of review can't help."

★★★★★

"We covered geometry and probability at assessment level. We just reviewed some geometry points and some test taking strategies like careful reading of problems, skip and come back, etc. "
