PRIVATE ALGEBRA 2 TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in Algebra 2.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.
Our algebra 2 tutors are experts at math and love teaching the subject. They’ve won awards in math competitions, are math majors, or have used algebra extensively in their coursework.

What parents say about our Algebra 2 tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A quick “case study”:
We think this testimonial from the mother of an 11th-grader at the Lawrenceville School speaks for itself!
The tutor, George, is a physics major at Princeton University who spent three summers as a teaching assistant at his high school.
Here’s what the family had to say:
“I am writing to commend one of your tutors, George. He is outstanding. He has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra II. She said that he makes math so easy to understand and clearly explains the concepts. My daughter remarked that he doesn’t ‘overtalk’ like many other tutors are prone to do. This is especially important after kids have been ‘talked at’ in school all day.
She scored an A+ on her Algebra II midterm in large part due to George. She is now trying to bring up her math SAT scores and she asked that George help her. She said that he totally calmed her down and took the ‘mystique’ out of the problems which can appear to be tricky. He has given her a new confidence in math.
From a parent’s perspective, he is efficient, focused, timely, professional and a clear communicator. We are very pleased that he is a sophomore and will be around next year to help her with physics and calculus if need be. Thank you.”
We receive messages like these every week.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Subject(s): Algebra 2/Trigonometry
Time Tutored: 17:00 – 18:00
We covered logarithmic functions—mainly graphing them and how to find their inverses. I went over a method of rewriting any logarithmic function as its parent function for a specific base and how it might make graphing easier. We went over a couple of general examples. Hopefully, it has helped Diya with her understanding of how to graph logarithmic functions.
Assignments for Next Week:
I have sent Diya three additional worksheets—2 are about graphing logarithmic functions and one is about deriving exponential functions from logarithmic functions. Hopefully, she can finish the worksheets by our next session and if she has any questions about the worksheets, we can start from there (also, 2 of the worksheets have answer keys, and I will send her the third worksheet’s answer keys soon).
How is your child performing in Algebra 2?LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP
Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is Algebra 2 important?
Algebra 2 builds upon skills learned in Algebra 1 and geometry, and starts to delve into more advanced concepts such as radicals, complex numbers, exponentials, logarithmic functions, and more.
It is often taught in conjunction with trigonometry.
Why do some students struggle with Algebra 2?
The material in Algebra 2 is more abstract than in Algebra 1, and this causes issues for some students.
We also frequently see students who are smart and know the subject fairly well, but work too fast, leading to carelessness. They are used to doing things in their head, and while that might have gotten them through middle school just fine, with more difficult subjects, it is important to be methodical and write things down step-by-step. This helps organize the thought process, prevents careless mistakes, and also allows for partial credit when it’s given.
Ethan was just telling me today that his sessions with Katie are so helpful.
Her style makes him feel relaxed and at ease with a subject that usually fills him with anxiety. She explains things in a way he can more readily understand and gives him confidence that he is having success learning the material--even though testing remains a real challenge for him.
Although he tends to feel negatively towards Algebra, he has a positive attitude about his sessions with Katie because he feels the time spent is both useful and enjoyable. I'm grateful they are such a good match.
