Algebra I and Algebra II Tutoring

Do you know the solution to 3 + 2 * 5x(y + 1)?  Chesterfield Learning Center has experienced tutors who can help your child solve this problem and all levels of beginning and advanced Algebra I and Algebra II. Most students encounter Algebra in 7th or 8th grade – a challenging time of growth and transition for many.   They are asked to wrap their heads around the new concepts of equations,  proportions, polynomials,  factoring, exponents,  and squares.   At the same time, all of their classes are becoming more demanding and the simple structure of elementary school classrooms is gone.  Despite their increased workload and responsibilities,  it is essential for students to master the math skills they learn in Algebra I in order to advance.

 As students move into more advanced mathematics,  such as Algebra I they often question the practicality of difficult concepts like polynomials and rational expressions.  Chesterfield Learning Center’s expert math tutors know how to help your child appreciate the real-world applications of Algebra 2 and motivate them to want to learn.


Helping Students Become Independent Learners


As students move into more challenging math concepts,  they may have a tendency to rely on technology.  Don’t let your child become a calculator junkie!  Help them develop independent learning techniques from one of our experienced tutors who know how to build motivation and prepare students for success.
