Our most popular math subjects
Algebra is a notoriously difficult subject. Whenever the Earle brothers (our co-founders) tell people that they own a mathematics education company, peoples’ most common comment is normally about their struggles with algebra as a high school student. And that’s for good reason. Algebra is really tough! Eric M Earle recalls struggling greatly in Algebra as a high school student. Now he is so thankful that he owns a math tutoring company that helps students conquer this tough subject.
Pre-calc is also one of the most feared subjects among students. We think pre-calc is so hard because it introduces some fundamentally difficult concepts such as parametric equations & and the limits of series. (Those just sound hard, don’t they?) Many times students just can’t catch up in pre-calc. They can’t master these topics. Normally they are also still behind from algebra class! That’s why 1-on-1 private education is often helpful in these difficult courses.
Geometry is one of the oldest subjects known to humankind. Geometry is difficult because it requires students to think differently about mathematics. No longer is math confined to formulas, plug-and-chug equations, & order-of-operations. In geometry, mathematics consists of visualization and the ability to understand and apply terms & definitions. We’ve also found that students often struggle with geometric proofs.
Honors math can get really tricky. We definite honors math as any accelerated mathematics course. These range from IB to AP to accelerated math courses. Normally, these courses move quickly and require much more effort of students (relative to standard classes). That’s one reason that many students struggle with these courses—and often end up reaching out to us for assistance. We’re happy to help with AP exams, too.
