I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Algebra can be a struggle for students. All of a sudden, there’s letters in addition to numbers they have to worry about.

With over 5 years of 1:1 tutoring experience, I have helped many others learn algebra by identifying concepts that speak most to them and allow them to more easily wrap their heads around dealing with letters and numbers together through my unique coaching framework of progressive problem sets starting with first principles.

Algebra is the foundation for all higher math, which is why I take so much care ensuring students not only ace their exams, but have a full concept mastery so they’ll be prepared for geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and beyond.

Albert is willing to go the extra mile to structure a lesson plan that met my specific exam goals. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Matt
Albert did a great job working with my high school son. Despite his quiet demeanor, after the very first lesson, he mapped the most efficient plan to get my son help, asking questions that were straight to the point. Ever since, he won’t allow my son to digress from that path set, and it has seen phenomenal results!
Marwan S.
Albert is a great Algebra tutor. He's clear, thorough, and breaks the concepts down into smaller, easier to grasp chunks. Highly recommend!

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

(Genesis C.) Dr. Dawn is an amazing math tutor! She is both professional and personable. She is also intuitive, kindhearted, and detail oriented. I like how she was able to email me a document to me of the math problems that we worked through. I highly recommend her! She helped me raise my college algebra grade up, which I was once concerned about.
God bless you, Dr. Dawn! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"My 3 daughters looked forward to Tutoring Nights with Colin!

I have 3 girls in High school (10th, 10th, and 9th) . they had been struggling in math since I can remember. I didn't think I could afford tutoring. They each had an 'F' in math.

I found Colin, and what a blessing! In just THREE short weeks Colin had my girls understanding HIS lessons, their CLASSROOM lessons and PASSING their exams! They brought their grades up too!

The best thing I can compare his tutoring to is: an adult teaching a kid to ride a bike...
He didn't expect them to just ride a bike. he took the proper steps and taught my girls about the bike parts, the way the bike functions, how they all work together, how to properly sit and pedal, and he even held them up until they understood it completely and eventually were able to ride the bike on their own.

Thank you Colin! for putting my girls back on track with math!"

She learned in 15 minutes from Julissa, what she couldn't learn for many many classes with her regular teacher. After only her first session she went and googled some of the math problems they discussed to go practice, on her own! And asked that I bump her session with Julissa to twice a week instead of only once! Thank you SO MUCH!"
