    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!

    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.

    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    I am going into my second year as a Themba tutor. I have met so many great individuals while working for this company.

    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!

    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible.

  • Pre-Algebra 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.
  • Pre-Algebra 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.
  • Pre-Algebra 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.

    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning.

    Paul Smith at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in terms of teaching the subject matter and teaching how best to approach the process of learning math and executing assignments. We feel very fortunate to be working with … More Paul.
  • Pre-Algebra Math,Tutors High School College Students, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What is Pre-Algebra?

Pre-algebra is the first algebraic subject taught to middle school students, typically in the 7th or 8th grade, to prepare them for high school math lessons. It is the students’ initial exposure to crucial algebraic concepts, such as that of the equals sign that denotes two sides are equivalent and can be manipulated together. Similarly, students are also introduced to integers, square roots, fractions, linear and step equations, variables, and decimals. It serves as the foundation of math courses that every student will encounter in the future. The curriculum is geared at teaching basic concepts, which students can apply to different types of mathematical problems.

 

ALGEBRA BASICS: WHAT IS ALGEBRA? – MATH ANTICS

This Includes:

 

  • Factors and primes
  • Intro to fractions
  • GCF and LCM
  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Percents
  • Exponents
  • Order of operations
  • Properties
  • Signed numbers (integers)
  • Intro to exponents
  • Intro to radicals
  • Intro to polynomials
  • Intro to solving equations
  • Intro to graphing

What Problems Do Students Encounter When Studying Pre-Algebra?

 

When a student struggles with pre-algebra, the problem can typically be traced to his or her poor understanding of the subject’s fundamental concepts. Just as any structure requires a sturdy foundation, foundational concepts must be properly laid out and understood for a student to succeed.

 

However, this itself can also be a problem for students when the methods of instruction make understanding lessons or concepts more complicated. This is particularly true when learning algebra as the steps, formulas, and techniques are often difficult to understand and apply in real-world situations. Hence, it is crucial for educators to identify the best method of instruction for their students and adjust their current strategies accordingly. One way to do this is to ensure that adequate focus is given to practicing concepts so that students not only remember the lesson but also become more comfortable with problem-solving.

 

Another factor that a teacher must be aware of is students who may have undiagnosed conditions that interfere with their ability to understand a lesson and learn alongside their peers. While it can be easy to assume that a student who doesn’t pay attention in class is simply disinterested in the subject, it may also be an emerging sign of ADHD. A student who may be struggling with ADHD will often find it difficult to focus on understanding certain concepts or go through every step in the problem-solving process. Special focus and guidance must be given to these students inside and outside the classroom.
