For one-on-one private tutoring, you'll need to investigate local resources, such as a Kumon Tutoring Center or your local college or high school (either of which should be able to make some recommendations).

For online lessons, you could try starting with this lesson on negative numbers and then this lesson on simplifying with parentheses (including dealing with the "minus" signs). :wink:
