Pre-Algebra Tutoring

Our pre-algebra tutoring videos and lessons prepare students for rigorous courses in Algebra. It begins with the foundations of arithmetic such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percents but also prepares the learner by introducing Algebraic subjects such as radicals, polynomials, factoring, graphing, and rational expressions.  As the student develops confidence with the realm of Algebra they can begin to move on to our elementary algebra, intermediary algebra and college algebra tutorial videos and lessons as they progress at their own pace.
