Algebra is a fundamental course that students need to master in order to not only excel in all upper-level math courses (i.e., Geometry, Trigonometry, or Calculus), but to excel in many science courses as well, such as Chemistry and Physics. As such, Algebra is seen as the necessary building block to more challenging courses.
It is in an Algebra class that students first learn the proper skills to think both logically and critically, and to use this knowledge to correctly identify and address mathematical problems. In addition, students will be able to analyze and tackle certain issues seen outside the classroom, such as money and time management.
Algebra can seem daunting, especially if students have already been struggling with previous math classes. However, working in a private setting with a professional one-on-one Algebra tutor from The Glaser Tutoring Company will not only significantly improve a student’s performance in Algebra, but also boost their confidence to succeed in other courses as well.
