Math Tutoring


Private Pre-Algebra Tutoring

Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in pre-algebra. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional pre-algebra tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you’ll receive a detailed progress report to track your child’s improvement (view a real recap from one of our pre-algebra tutoring sessions).

What Parents Say about Our Pre-Algebra Tutors

The mother of a sixth grader at John Witherspoon Middle School contacted us to help her son with pre-algebra. He was very creative and excelled at writing, but really struggled with math. He was diagnosed with auditory processing disorder and has difficulty with numbers, logic, sequential thinking, and mathematical terms. The new levels of abstraction in pre-algebra were giving him a lot of trouble.

We matched the student with Erick, an economics major at Princeton University who had been tutoring pre-algebra since he was in eighth grade and has worked with students who have disabilities before. Additionally, his mother was a seventh-grade pre-algebra teacher.

Here’s what we heard back:

“Thank you and Kevin for Princeton Tutoring. We’ve now been working with Erick for some time, and he has been very helpful and conscientious on his part, helping J with his homework and also following up with me regarding special Spanish tidbits! Thanks for your professionalism, and we look forward to connecting [again] come September with Erick!”

Why Do Students Struggle with Pre-Algebra?

Pre-algebra is typically covered in middle school and as the name suggests, is meant as preparation for algebra. It introduces variables and teaches students how to solve different types of equations. Some students have trouble with, among other things, the concept of variables, or more complicated uses of negative numbers. Our pre-algebra tutors are experts at math, love to teach the subject, and can help your child get on track!
