# Algebra Tutoring

For our Algebra 1 tutoring program we assign students credentialed math teachers who have taught the class currently or in the past. The benefit to having Algebra 1 tutors who are also a teacher is that in the State of California all teachers must teach the same mathematical standards for Algebra 1, so the tutor will be very experienced in the subject matter.

**Algebra 1 is essential to students as they progress through the ranks.** In Algebra 1 students are first introduced to variables, inequalities, and graphing (with an emphasis on mastering slope and slope-intercept form), which are important at every future step along the way, including Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Calculus. If a student gets lost with the material in Algebra 1 it is very hard to keep up with the new material because most of the Algebra 1 material builds upon itself. In addition, passing Algebra 1 is a requirement in the State of California and Algebra 1 is a component of major college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT.

**Moreover, students who are lost in Algebra 1 often lose and begin to view mathematics as a tortuous path to failure. ** **Our Algebra 1 tutors have seen the frustration that Algebra 1 can cause in a student and know ways to help the students get back on track.**
