Mathnasium of Englewood - Algebra Tutor and Algebra Homework Help

Feb 15, 2020

When students reach Algebra, it is a culmination of the fundamental skills from all math classes in elementary and middle school, and sets the stage for all high school and college math classes that will follow. 

Often, students come to Mathnasium of Englewood in need of Algebra tutoring and instruction because of gaps in the prerequisite math curriculum necessary to make sense of the material covered in Algebra class.

Getting ready for Algebra starts in first grade, with each year of math building on the prior through elementary school and beyond.  Algebra presents students with the more abstract side of math. In order to make sense of these abstractions, they need to master their number facts and fractions, build their computational skills, and gain number sense (an intuitive understanding of how numbers work). This goes beyond memorizing algorithmic processes.

Our Approach

To determine each student’s math abilities, Mathnasium of Englewood gives a written Algebra assessment exclusive to the Mathnasium Method. Based on the diagnostic assessment results, our math instructors build customized learning plans designed to fit the student’s specific needs in two important ways -- avoid spending time on things they already know and strengthen the things they need help on to reduce math frustration. 

We understand the pressures and busy schedules your students face.  Our focus is to help with immediate problems, such as homework help and test prep, while filling in any foundational gaps in their mathematical knowledge. The goal is to enhance their performance in the crucial exams they’ll be taking that can have a great effect on their future: STAAR Exam, End of Course (EOC) exams, Advanced Placement (AP) exams, and the SAT and the ACT.
