    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

  • Algebra 2 Math Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors carolina luttmann ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Algebra 2 Math Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • Algebra 2 Math Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Algebra 2 Math Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

What Is Algebra II (2)?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in Algebra II (2) for high school students. 

WHAT IS A FUNCTION? | FUNCTIONS AND THEIR GRAPHS ALGEBRA II | Khan Academy

Algebra II (2) is usually the third math course in high school after students take Algebra I (1) and Geometry. Algebra II (2) guides students through linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability, and trigonometry.

What’s the Difference Between Algebra I (1) and Algebra II (2)?

Algebra 1 introduces the general concepts of algebra. Students learn about variables and functions, and the primary focus is solving equations. The only functions they study extensively are linear and quadratic. Students learn their basic properties, how to find their roots, how to graph them, how to convert them between different “forms,” and how to find their inverses. Algebra 2, on the other hand, is more advanced and builds upon the concepts students learn in pre-algebra and Algebra 1. Students learn everything from logarithms and complex numbers to implicit functions and conics to algebra’s fundamental theorem.

 

Why is Algebra II (2) Important?

Algebra 2 is one of the most important math courses for high school and college students. It is typically the highest level math course that students take in high school and makes up a significant portion on tests such as the SAT and ACT. Aside from math courses, the concepts students learn in Algebra 2 can also be applied in other subject areas such as chemistry and physics.

 

College students who are pursuing majors in science, math, and engineering will find that Algebra 2 is crucial in their coursework. Likewise, other fields of study, such as economics and other social sciences, also require algebraic skills, which include graphing solving equations, and simplifying expressions.

 

Needless to say, the concepts that students learn in algebra play a significant role in their academic success as these can be applied in other classes and subjects. That said, Algebra 2 can prove to be quite a challenge for many students. This is particularly for those high school and college students who have not mastered the foundational skills and concepts taught in pre-algebra and Algebra 1.

 

In Algebra 1, students learn how write and solve equations, graph, and calculate slopes, which are all skills and concepts that continue to be important in Algebra 2. Basic concepts such as lines are further expanded into parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas. The same is true for quadratic expressions, which require a good grasp of exponents and radicals.

What Challenges Do Students Encounter with Algebra II (2)?

Algebra 2 can be an intimidating subject for students. With the right teaching strategies, educators can engage students in the subject matter and assist them in a better understanding of complicated concepts.

 

Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are considered two of the most important pillars in mathematics. Algebra is more than just solving for x and y. It’s a way of thinking and approaching conceptual problems with variable entities and reasoning them out successfully.

 

 

Here Is a List of Possible Challenges students Might Encounter with Algebra II (2):

 

Poor Mathematical Foundations

To solve different algebraic expressions, students need to first work on strengthening fundamental concepts in basic mathematics like arithmetic and number theory. They need to have a clear understanding of how basic math works to solve problems that contain more complex mathematical concepts. Lack of primary knowledge leads to making mistakes in the process of concluding.

 

Lack of Clarity While Solving Basic Equations

Solving equations is the center of algebra studies. Students start by learning to solve simple linear equations with just one variable and build to solve more complex and difficult problems. If students haven’t had a solid foundation in understanding the steps necessary to solve equations, it might be challenging. A simple way to make a student understand how to solve algebraic equations is by thinking of the problem as a balance. Each side has to remain balanced, and the equal sign acts as the pivot.

Dyscalculia

This is a learning disability that causes students to struggle with formulas, shapes, and number concepts. Dyscalculia makes it difficult for students to process math problems. Students with dyscalculia usually fall behind their peers in math.

 

No Room for Error

Unlike other subjects, there’s no room for error when it involves math. Students need to understand math concepts. Because of this, math can quickly become a frustrating and stressful experience for students.

 

It Requires a Lot of Practice

Math isn’t something that students automatically “get.” It takes practice to understand math concepts. Without practice, students can have a tough time keeping up, and then the more advanced math concepts will be harder for them.

What Are The Best Strategies for Studying Algebra II (2)?

 

 

Practice, Practice, and More Practice!

This isn’t much of a secret, but many students overlook this essential advice for learning math. It requires plenty of ‘doing.’ It’s not a subject you can memorize from a textbook the night before an exam. Students need to understand the logic and process behind the problems, which comes naturally with practice. It also allows one to identify and work through common mistakes. In the end, practice helps students improve their math skills.

 

 

Finish Homework

It goes without saying that homework is very important for studying math because students need to apply what they learned in class. Even if the course instructor doesn’t require handing in-home assignments, consider it part of math practice.

 

 

Take Extensive Notes

When students are in a lecture, they should take detailed notes. Instead of merely copying the math examples on the board, it’s also a great idea to write all the professor’s explanations and tips. Later, when reviewing notes or doing homework, students might find class notes helpful. The notes will help solve difficult problems. Students will read and recall what the professor said about steps and solutions. Plus, math encourages active learning. Students are engaged while listening to the lecture and absorb the material instead of zoning out and trying to catch up later.

 

 

Get Support and Tutoring 

There are many reasons students might need support and tutoring for math. It is a cumulative subject, meaning students need a strong foundation, or they might fall behind. Sometimes students need something explained differently to understand it truly.
