If you can answer "Yes" to ANY of the questions above, then I have GREAT news for you.
My name is Karin Hutchinson, and hopefully you've had a chance to peruse Algebra-class.com. I am the sole creator of this site, and my ultimate goal is to help ALL students find success with Algebra.
After teaching for ten years, I decided to stay home and devote my time and energy to my darling girls; however I quickly found out how much I missed teaching, helping students, and seeing the smile on their faces when all of sudden they "got it".
Yes, it's that "Aha" moment that makes teaching so rewarding!
So, in order to continue my passion for teaching, I created Algebra-Class and the experience has been amazing because I am now able to help students all over the world.
Although, I don't always get to see the "Aha" moments, I definitely read about them in emails.
Wouldn't you love to say, "Yes, I get it!" or "Yes, I got that answer right!"
Well, you can .... and it all begins with building a strong, solid foundation in Algebra.
You see.... once you have a strong foundation of skills, the skills will build on each other.
Once you master one skill, you set yourself up for being successful with the next skill.
Pretty soon, you've mastered a whole unit and you are ready to use those skills in the next unit.
The best part is, not only have you mastered the skills, but you've also gained the confidence to keep moving forward.
One of the best ways to build this strong foundation is through what I call, "Chunking"....
I began tutoring Algebra 1 when my first daughter was just six months old. I couldn't wait to start teaching again.
Of course, my students were not your straight A students or even your B students. My students were struggling to keep a C in Algebra.
Not because they weren't good students or they didn't like school, they just didn't have the building blocks to be successful and as a result they also developed a dislike for math.
So... although their parents made them come each and every week with a frown on their face, I was determined to build their foundation and change their outlook on math.
With each lesson, they were studying in school, I would say, "Let's start with this...we will get to your homework soon."
We'd back up a few steps and start with the "building blocks" to that lesson. Then we would take a look at their homework and apply what we just went over, and I would hear, "OH... I get it now".
All of a sudden, the homework was a piece of cake!
After a couple of sessions each week, my students and parents were saying, "I can't believe how easy you make Algebra!" "I can't believe that I'm actually getting an A in this class."
Many of these students have never seen an "A" in math, because they just didn't believe that they could do it.
So, not only does taking 3 steps back and "chunking the material" help raise your grades, but it builds self confidence and a positive math attitude!
With my Algebra tutorials, I can help you not only improve your Algebra grades, but actually learn to love Algebra and want to continue your study of Math!
Why so many lessons, you might ask? Well, you are pretty much guaranteed to understand Algebra because I've broken all of the lessons down into bite sized pieces.
With step-by-step videos that walk you through over 420 examples, you will have no problem understanding Algebra!
You can't be successful in Algebra or any higher level math class without a strong foundation in the basics! That's why we will start at the very beginning reviewing integers, properties, and expressions.
As you enter each new unit, you will have a strong foundation of skills that will ensure your success!
You'll start with my solving equations organizer that will help you to solve any equation. Solving equations is the basis of your foundation. It's one of the most important skills that you will learn in Algebra!
Many students get frustrated right from the beginning with complex equations, but I guarantee that you won't when you use the Solving Equations Organizer that is only found in this course!
Another organizer that you won't want to be without is my Word Problem organizer! The DREADED Word Problems... Everyone hates them, but once you learn to dissect the problem, you will be teaching others how to solve these real world problems!
I know, who wants more work, right? But... the only way to truly understand these concepts is to complete a few problems. This builds confidence to keep moving forward.
You will have access to thousands of practice problems and NO, you don't have to complete them all!
I know you are busy! You have tons of homework in addition to all of your evening activities. That's why I am going to save you so much time! Isn't it frustrating when you have to take a half-hour or longer to figure out how to get the right answer?
That's why I provide you with step-by-step answer keys! You can compare your answers to the key and find your mistake instantly. What I LOVE most about it is that you learn the best by analyzing your mistakes. This makes it quick, easy, and adds to the learning experience!
You are busy and always on the go! I understand and sometimes you might have to study a little on the road. You can access Algebra Class via the internet and study from anywhere! Yep... there's no excuses!
I know you are wondering if this program will cover the units that you are studying.
Below is a list of all the units and the lessons contained in the units. If you are using this as a curriculum, you can see that this Algebra Course contains a very thorough study of Algebra.
If you are using this as a supplement to your studies, you will find many individual lessons guaranteed to suit your needs.
You'll have instant access to all twelve units of the Algebra Class curriculum, plus a mid-term and final exam!
Just think... a tutor costs about $50 per hour. So, for one month that's $200!
You can have access to the hundreds of Algebra lessons in Algebra Class for less than a month of tutoring!
As a BONUS, I've also included the first five units of the Algebra 2 program. Algebra 2 is currently a work in progress and lessons will be added as they are completed.
Please Note: You will not receive an actual book in the mail. This is an online course, and all materials can be saved or printed from your computer. You will access all worksheets and videos once you login to the secure online course.
If you are like me, I don't like to buy anything unless I give it a try first. I like to see what it is all about before I invest time or money into it.
So, I'm going to give you 2 free units! This way, you can try it
out and see if it works for you!
You will have instant access to:
Okay, so I have been plugging along on your coursework and making progress.
This is kind of amazing for a 57 year old who could never really do Algebra in the past. I think that my ability to really help my students in pre-Algebra and Algebra will be so much better due to your ever so well-organized course.
I love how you have the note format too for us, and wish that more instructors set-up their courses in such a manner.
The reinforcement work is similar to what was taught and you don't attempt to "trick" us along the way (and I thank-you for that).
All the best,
I wanted to add that finding your site was such a blessing to me!
I have been out of school for 13+ years and finding out that my next course would be Algebra scared me to death! I have now found a new love of learning for algebra--something I never thought would happen.
After indulging in the section of functions, I decided to explore other areas that I have just learned. It made areas such as inequalities and graphing so much easier to grasp!
I just wanted to thank you for your passion and dedication for helping others! I also love the fact that you add in some humor, too.
I have shared your site with classmates and hope they take an opportunity to look into it as well!
