Robert Z. ...Algebra goes down much easier if there's a solid prealgebra foundation in graphing, ratios, and exponents. Also important to be developed is the ability to read a word problem and translate it into mathematical terms. I take each student, young or old, where they are, and work with them until they are ready for the formality of an algebra course.

Peter G. ...The same concepts are in elementary algebra, and I have a good amount of experience tutoring at this level. I like to find the right balance between identifying patterns through the repetition of a given category of problem, and asking more conceptual questions. Advanced algebra was one of my favorite subjects in graduate school, where I earned an "A" in at least three or four such courses.

Savannah H. ...I start from basics and move up when a student doesn't understand something. This is because many SAT questions are based on utilizing base knowledge and manipulating a question, so I believe it is more important to understand the equations rather than simply memorize them. I scored in the 90th percentile on my SAT and attended Stanford for mathematics.
