Hello, I'm Karin Hutchinson.
If you are like many of the students who email me on a daily basis, you may be searching for a way to understand your Algebra lessons, ace your tests, and raise your grades.
If you are completely frustrated in math class, feel more lost each and every day, or feel like you will never understand Algebra, then I may have the perfect solution for you!
Here's how I can help...
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.
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!
My parents and students always said, "I wish you were my teacher". And.... truthfully, I wished that I could get back into the classroom and reach more students.
However, I felt totally devoted to my family and I knew I just couldn't do it.
Then one of my parents said, "Well, you should teach online from home. I bet there are other families who could benefit from your services and with skype and other software programs, I'm sure you could make it work.
I knew I didn't have the time to add more tutoring sessions, BUT, the idea of teaching online was great!
I started researching how to create the website, how to record videos, and how to write on my screen. Within a few months Algebra-class was born and I started writing my first Algebra curriculum.
It only took about two years, but I did it! I created an Algebra Class that anyone could access from the internet and a class that I knew EVERYONE would be successful with because of all the "building blocks" I set up along the way.
Algebra Class is an online Algebra 1 program designed to meet the needs of any student who is struggling in Algebra.
It is also a full Algebra 1 curriculum for home school students who are beginning Algebra 1 or are looking to find a new curriculum that is much more user friendly and easier to understand.
Math students of all ages learn at different paces, so you can log on to this course at any time and take the Algebra course at your own pace.
It is also designed so that you can quickly find lessons that pertain to a lesson that you may be working on in a class or in another program.
This online algebra class was created with "Any" Algebra student in mind.
It's perfect for the home school student who is looking for an easy to understand curriculum that allows for independent study.
It's also perfect for a middle or high school student who needs extra help with their Algebra class. This course can be used very much like a personal tutor who costs over $50 an hour.
Many teachers and tutors use it for students who are falling behind in class and need an independent Algebra course.
I also have many adults purchase the curriculum so that they can brush up on their skills before taking an introductory Algebra class in college or if they are attempting to pass the college entrance exams.
It's a very versatile program, and users of all different ages and backgrounds have had huge success with the program.
You will log in to the E-course from any computer that you choose.
Take a look at this email that I received from a struggling mother of five...
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!
Think about how much it would cost to hire a tutor for one hour a week....
About $50 an hour is the going rate around here in Maryland.
That adds up to about $200 a month for just 4 hours of help.
You can have access to the hundreds of Algebra lessons in Algebra Class (for a full year) for the same exact price that you would pay for just one hour of tutoring.
YES, for just $49.99 you can have access to the entire program.
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.
If you know that you will only need the program for a few months, I also offer a monthly subscription of $9.99 per month.
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.
