What Parents Say about Our Algebra 2 Tutors
We think this testimonial from the mother of an 11th-grader at the Lawrenceville School speaks for itself! The tutor, George, is a physics major at Princeton University who spent three summers as a teaching assistant at his high school:
“I am writing to commend one of your tutors, George. He is outstanding. He has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra II. She said that he makes math so easy to understand and clearly explains the concepts. My daughter remarked that he doesn’t ‘overtalk’ like many other tutors are prone to do. This is especially important after kids have been ‘talked at’ in school all day.
She scored an A+ on her Algebra II midterm in large part due to George. She is now trying to bring up her math SAT scores and she asked that George help her. She said that he totally calmed her down and took the ‘mystique’ out of the problems which can appear to be tricky. He has given her a new confidence in math.
From a parent’s perspective, he is efficient, focused, timely, professional and a clear communicator. We are very pleased that he is a sophomore and will be around next year to help her with physics and calculus if need be. Thank you.”

Why Do Students Struggle with Algebra 2?
Algebra 2 builds upon skills learned in Algebra 1 and geometry, and starts to delve into more advanced concepts such as radicals, complex numbers, exponentials, logarithmic functions, and more. It is often taught in conjunction with trigonometry.
The material in Algebra 2 is more abstract than in Algebra 1, and this causes issues for some students. We also frequently see students who are smart and know the subject fairly well, but work too fast, leading to carelessness. They are used to doing things in their head, and while that might have gotten them through middle school just fine, with more difficult subjects, it is important to be methodical and write things down step-by-step. This helps organize the thought process, prevents careless mistakes, and also allows for partial credit when it’s given.
Our algebra tutors are experts at math and love teaching the subject. Some have won awards in math competitions, and some are math majors or have other quantitative majors where algebra is used extensively.
