If you can answer "Yes" to ANY of the questions above, then I have GREAT news for you.
My name is Karin Hutchinson, not only am I creator of this site, but I am a home-school Mom too! I started homeschooling my daughter when she was in 7th grade (during the dreaded middle school years) and she just happened to be taking Algebra 1. So, I know the joys of homeschooling and I also have experienced the frustrations with homeschooling, especially when it comes to curriculum (not math, of course)!
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.
Luckily I've been able to see those "Aha" moments with my daughter! Although, I don't always get to see the "Aha" moments from my other students, I definitely read about them in emails.
Wouldn't you love to hear your child 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 Algebra Class, I can help your child not only improve their Algebra grades, but actually learn to love Algebra and want to continue their 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 that homeschooling programs can be very expensive! I also respect the fact that you are staying home to educate your child!
I want to help you and your child and not break the bank, so....

Dear Karin, I am a home school mom of five who struggled with finding a solid Algebra program for my older boys until I came upon your online algebra class.
Your tutorials are straight forward and detailed. Your assignments are designed in such a way that we can spend extra time on what my children need to and move on when they understand something more easily.
I am a math-lover myself and am excited that you have finished Part 2 of this course. My boys are understanding Algebra in a way that they never were able to with other courses due to the detail and care that are in each of your lessons.
I also appreciate that you are available to answer questions.
I just wanted to say what a blessing your Algebra program has been! My son is comprehending and understanding Algebra so much better the way you explain it.
I'm so glad I found your website for our home-school year. I wish that you also taught and had a website for Geometry! I'm already researching what to use next year that is close to what you have done with Algebra and have come up empty handed.
Thank you again!
