All Business: Multi-Subject Tutoring, Including Physics and Writing

To be sufficient in a subject is to be able to perform the problems assigned to you. To be proficient in a subject is to be able to perform any problem that could be assigned to you, or at least tackle them adequately. In our fast-paced society, more times than not, students are educated just to be sufficient in a subject. My intent as a tutor is to educate a student to master that subject -- to be proficient in ... See more

Math and science turoring with a focus on test prep.

My first experience tutoring came while attending the University of Southern California in 2005. There, I assisted fellow classmates in preparing for upcoming exams and found great reward in helping others gain confidence in their academics abilities. After graduation, I was presented with the opportunity to join a network of USC alumni providing tutoring services to the surrounding community. Through this network, I began tutoring elementary and middle school students in their homes, gaining more subject experience and acquiring a ... See more

Penn State Grad with 8+ years of tutoring experience

I have my Masters in Analytical Chemistry and have been tutoring students in chemistry, honors chemistry, AP chemistry, and freshman college chemistry. I prefer to tutor in-person, but I have done a lot of online tutoring lately and have figured out how to do that fairly effectively, too (though it's never as easy or as effective as in person!).

Why You Need a Prealgebra Tutor

Math is one of those courses in school that is either a hit or a miss. But it is still something you have to take no matter if you are good or horrible with numbers. You may have told yourself plenty of times that math just isn’t for you, or that you weren’t born with math skills. Well, it may be time for a pre-algebra tutor to get this negativity out of your head. You absolutely have the potential to thrive in your pre-algebra class. If you have struggled with math in the past, it could simply be because you didn’t have a math tutor that taught in a way that you are capable of understanding. Having a private tutor allows you to learn in a variety of ways. They will provide you with different methods of solving problems that you never knew existed. Tutors can turn your math lessons into a game, making them fun and easy to memorize facts and formulas.

Pre-algebra is often one of the most difficult classes that students will take early on. In middle school, the math classes before may have not been all that troubling. The classes may have had obstacles but they were nothing compared to what your child will go through while taking a pre-algebra course. This is an incredibly difficult course and one that really reveals the students who have the skills versus those who may not. When it becomes more and more real that your child may have trouble with this class you need to get pre-algebra tutoring sooner than later. This is going to truly help your student stay ahead of the material because as soon as they start to fall behind it is going to get harder and harder. This is not a class where your child should wait until the last minute to reach out to a “pre-algebra tutor near me.” The sooner they get on these problems and start to figure out what they are doing, the better off they will be in the class.

When you handle this right away you will be making sure that your child is ready to take on whatever this teacher throws at them. These topics will be used when they graduate and start taking math classes in high school. So if they are not learned now, or your child just does the bare minimum to pass, high school math will be even more difficult for them. Our professional private pre-algebra tutors are here to help your child find success. If you truly want them to get the skills they need this is the best place to start. Some school systems do not offer pre-algebra until high school which may be the way your child’s school is set up. If that is the case then they are going to see that things are changing quite swiftly. Middle school may not have been all that challenging for them, but high school is a whole different beast. This is for way more reasons than what they are going through in the classroom. The transition from middle to high school is one that is particularly difficult for most students to handle.

A tutor may not have been something that was needed before but now you know for a fact that your child is going to have to get help. This may because of trends you have noticed or because they have come to you and told you “I need a pre-algebra tutor.” This is them taking the first responsible step toward securing stability in the classroom. There are so many more things going on in high school that when they start to fall behind in a class such as math if they wait too long it will certainly be too late. Nip this problem in the bud by finding a pre-algebra tutor. It is never too old to stop learning. This is especially true if you one day hope to be a bringer of knowledge yourself one day.

If you are on the path toward becoming a teacher then the idea of working with another educator is something is an absolute blessing. Our tutors are trained professionals who have worked years as teachers so they have techniques that are proven. You can take what you are learning in class mixed with what they provide to you so that you can be a fantastic teacher.  Pre-algebra is going to be a challenge to teach no matter what school you work at, so to help you with this it only makes sense to team up with someone who understands what you are about to experience when you start teaching.

Benefits of Hiring a Prealgebra Tutor

Pre-algebra is literally just the beginning of higher-level math concepts which is why if your child is struggling they need a tutor. When you hire a math tutor from HeyTutor you get much more than just a teacher. You gain an instructor who truly cares about your child’s academic success. In a sense, you are gaining a family friend who is going to help ease any tensions that are school related. This friendship will come in the form of a supportive tutor that will prepare you for important tests and quizzes by making sure you are prepped. They can answer every single question you have to ensure you have a clear understanding of the concepts. With a one-on-one pre-algebra tutor, you don't have to fear to ask questions or seeming dumb in front of your peers. Pre-algebra tutors can also serve as a study buddy, except they have all the answers for you when you get stuck.

This is not a class that is going to be a breeze for the majority of students. There are the exceptions who are just naturally gifted with numbers, but for the rest of us, we have to commit to working hard and doing the best we can. I can remember struggling in my pre-algebra course when I was in middle school. It was always something that took a lot out of me and I hated going to class or doing homework. Anything that was related to pre-algebra left a bad taste in my mouth. Unfortunately, I was unable to work with one of HeyTutors top of the line professionals. The good thing for you is we have the services you need to move forward and avoid the mistakes that I made. Our tutors will be able to help your child in ways that are not even conceivable in think about while in the classroom. This is exactly what they are going to need in order to get a great grade but also retain all of the information that is thrown their way.


In most classes, the course materials are not presented in a fun way, as the teacher is just up at the board lecturing. If your child is having issues understanding what is going on in the first place, this is not going to help them at all. They will get distracted out of frustration which will cause them to not be in the right mindset to learn. If they walk into class already thinking they are going to be confused they will never be able to succeed. Our math tutors look to change that mindset and make sure your child realizes that they are fully capable. With the right work ethic and proper guidance, there is nothing that your child cannot achieve. But first, they have to be comfortable and enjoying the material. When there is a sense of passion in our tutors it will be passed along to your child. They will realize that the best way to get through this class is to enjoy themselves. If they moan and groan whenever someone mentions pre-algebra no good will come. But if they are able to sit down and use fun activities taught to them by their tutor, they will be much better off. Because as we mentioned, these methods are not going anywhere. They will have to use it later on for algebra and several other math courses. So they need to face the music now so that they will have a less complicated path down the road.

We know that hiring a tutor, especially if it is your first time, can be scary and even difficult to admit. You also may not know if there are any capable private “pre-algebra tutors near me.” Or you are not sure if “pre-algebra tutors near me” is an affordable option. These are both valid questions you may have but HeyTutor is here to ease your nerves about finding a local tutor. We have plenty of professionals that offer a fresh outlook on how to approach pre-algebra. All of our tutors are highly skilled and qualified and they will come to tutor you in the convenience of your own home. Our platform is filled with tutors who have to pass an assessment and undergo a lengthy interview process. You can sort through tutors, view their qualifications and ratings, then determine who will work best for your budget, and find your perfect match. It’s time to rip off the band-aid and face your pre-algebra issues today. Our pre-algebra tutors will treat all your math symptoms once and for all.

Rustam is a wonderful fit for my 5th and 6th grade students! He began tutoring them in math a few months ago. Their attitudes towards math were extremely negative, their frustration levels high and their grades were B- and C+. After a few short months, they are both A students in Math (with one A+!), their questions are consistently and patiently answered and most importantly their attitudes and resiliency towards math are finally at a very positive level thanks solely to Rustam! Having Rustam as a math tutor has improved attitudes towards school in our family all around!
