Is your child finding high school algebra 1 an overwhelming challenge?

Algebra 1 is a struggle for many students. At Learner, we know how important it is for a student to have a firm foundation in algebra before moving on to advanced high school math and college courses. Our expert online algebra tutors are ready to help your child improve their understanding of algebra for better grades and test scores. With our interactive online platform, it’s easy for high school students to grow their algebra knowledge and problem-solving skills.

How Learner benefits students (and families)

Meaningful instruction

Situations that require algebraic problem-solving occur daily in the real world, but many students have trouble understanding quadratic equations and Algebra 1 nomenclature. Our experienced tutors take the time to explain abstract concepts in a meaningful way so students can truly understand and appreciate the beauty and functionality of algebra.

Practical skills

Once students understand elementary algebra, practice problems and exam questions start to make more sense. The next step is solidifying their problem-solving strategies. The interactive whiteboard in our online algebra class allows students to collaboratively solve problems with their tutors, upgrading their skills and increasing their confidence.

Effective preparation

Algebra 1 is fundamental to many other math courses, including AP calculus, linear equations, and college algebra. It’s also essential for physics and other science courses. With one-on-one instruction from our expert online tutors, students gain the foundational knowledge and practical skills they need to succeed in standardized tests and advanced STEM courses

Your child deserves the best online algebra 1 tutoring available

Our goal is to help every student gain an appreciation for how essential Algebra 1 is to everyday life. Strong problem-solving skills are applicable to countless real-world situations and are essential in most careers.

Why students love Learner.

Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a full ride to Duke University.

“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”

"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."

"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."

Top benefits of working with a private Algebra 1 tutor

1. Increased comprehension

A poor understanding of math and mathematical theories affects test scores and prevents students from enjoying math and understanding how to use it in everyday life. A private tutor can spend the time and effort it takes to help a student understand mathematical methods as well as the reasoning behind them. When students can grasp these, then they can use those critical-thinking, problem-solving, and logical skills in many aspects of life, not just math class.

2. One-on-one attention

Even the very best math teachers are limited by how many students are in their classrooms. In most classrooms, it’s simply not possible for a teacher to give each student the attention and care that they need, especially if they’re struggling with math.
A tutor can focus entirely on one student. The student doesn’t have to worry about being embarrassed about others hearing their “silly” questions and can learn at their own pace.

3. Better overall academic performance

Even when students are only tutored in one or a few subjects, the study skills that they gain in those sessions can be applied to other areas of their studies.
The learning methods and memorization tips that students learn in tutoring can improve study skill and give a student better results, boosting their confidence. These new skills and increased confidence can lead to a sustained improvement in academic performance.

4. Customized instruction

There are many different ways to grasp the same concepts. Standard methods of learning don’t always work for students, but tutoring allows students to find teachers and teaching styles that suit them and their unique learning needs.
Customized instruction also helps with a student’s self-awareness as it helps them to learn and realize more about the unique way in which they function.

5. Increased responsibility

One-on-one tutoring means that students cannot rely on anyone else to help them out when the going gets tough. They can’t pretend that they don’t understand so that someone else is called to answer a question and there are no friends to whisper the answer.
Instead, they have to ask questions when they need to and be honest when they need help. This teaches students to do everything that they can in order to perform well in their tutoring sessions because they can’t rely on anyone else.

Things to look for in an Algebra 1 tutor

Patience

Some students require repetition and multiple explanations of processes, theories, and reasonings. A tutor must have the patience to give this to their students. Students can get frustrated when they don’t understand a subject, haven’t slept enough, or are bored/under-stimulated. A patient tutor will be able to handle such situations with grace.

Motivation

It is critical that our tutors are in it for the right reasons and are dedicated to the long-term success of Learner students. This helps to ensure that every session with students is a productive, effective, and excellent one.
Additionally, a motivated tutor will be able to energize, direct, and sustain positive behavior and a positive environment over the course of the tutoring period.

Adaptability

Every student is different and learns differently. Therefore, our tutors must be able to adjust their approach based on the student’s needs, not only as they differ from person to person, but even when it comes to the same person as they progress.  

Enthusiasm

Tutors must have the enthusiasm to inspire students and help them develop a love of learning. People of all ages, even children, are very perceptive and can tell whether the person teaching them is really excited. A good tutor brings this energy no matter what is happening in their lives. This enthusiasm must extend even (in fact, especially) to when things aren’t going great in class.

Communication

A good tutor will demonstrate strong communication skills including active listening, speaking clearly, engaging students, and visualization. This helps to build relationships by allowing genuine connections and understanding to take place. Additionally, good communication means that things like instructions and comments don’t get lost along the way.

Empathy

It’s important that tutors see each of their students as individuals. They must understand their students have unique needs and challenges. They must be able to build rapport and ensure the student feels comfortable and valued on their specific terms and in their specific ways.

Humility

Sometimes the tutor will have to acknowledge they don’t know the answer and work with the student to help them understand the concept(s) better. Tutors must be able to see their own shortcomings honestly so that they can appreciate and implement feedback. This way, they can improve continuously.

Ambition

Tutors should possess a passion for learning, supporting, and teaching students. While extremely rewarding, tutoring can also be difficult. Having ambition means that tutors possess the drive to succeed and won’t give up on their students. They will be constantly working towards their goals, completing them, and then setting new ones.

Frequently Asked Algebra 1 Tutoring Questions

How is online tutoring different from in-person tutoring?

Online tutoring takes place in a virtual classroom instead of in the same physical space. An online math tutoring service gives you flexible scheduling and access to a broad pool of math experts who don’t need to live in your area.

What are the qualifications of your Algebra 1 tutors?

Learner has a very selective hiring process. We require tutors to have at least a bachelor’s degree and several years of experience as an online math tutor with a proven history of helping students master algebra. All our tutors are trained to use our innovative online platform and provide helpful feedback to students and parents.

Can I select an algebra tutor for my child?

Our Academic Advisor uses a proprietary matching system to select a tutor that best matches your child’s learning style and academic level. However, you get the final say, and if your child doesn’t click with their initial tutor in the free first session or later on, you can switch to a new tutor for free.

What does an Algebra 1 tutor do?

A Learner algebra tutor teaches fundamental algebra topics, like how to divide fractions and what to do with quadratic functions, in a clear and interesting way. Your child’s tutor will adjust their instruction style and progression according to your child’s needs and learning speed.

What should I do if my child and the algebra tutor aren’t compatible?

Our goal is to match each elementary and high school student with the best tutor for them. If your first tutor match isn’t a good fit for your child, you can switch to a different tutor. The first session is completely free and is a perfect opportunity to gauge compatibility between your child and the tutor.

How long does it take to start the first algebra tutoring session?

You can schedule your first session in a few days! After you fill out one online questionnaire, you can complete a consultation with our Academic Advisor to find the right tutor. Once your child is matched with an algebra tutor, you can schedule the first session at a convenient time.

How does online Algebra 1 tutoring work?

Your child will work one-on-one with their tutor in our online platform, which is compatible with most devices. The tutor may incorporate math class elements like lectures, practice questions, and homework assistance into each session, depending on your child’s needs.

Can an Algebra 1 tutor help my child improve their grades?

Our tutors have helped many students improve their Algebra 1 grades and increase their college entrance exam scores. By teaching essential algebraic concepts like linear equations and radical expressions, our tutors prepare students for success in Algebra 1I and any college algebra course.

How much does an algebra tutor cost?

A well-qualified tutor usually costs between $60 and $80 per hour. Sometimes rates change depending on how many hours of tutoring you pay for.

How do you become an online Algebra 1 tutor?

If you want to become an algebra tutor with Learner, you must have a degree from a four-year university and several years of tutoring experience online. We only hire tutors who can prove their success in helping their students improve their academic performance.

Is algebra tutoring tax deductible?

Generally, no. A private tutor is usually considered a personal expense not eligible for deduction. However, tutoring fees may be considered a medical expense for a special needs student.

What is your refund policy?

If you are unsatisfied with your child’s Learner tutor, we offer the chance to switch to another tutor free of charge. The first tutoring session is completely free.
