Pre-Calculus Tutoring for High School Students

## Pre-Calculus Tutoring for High School Students

Tutoring 4 Less’ Pre-Calculus tutoring for high school students prepares them for Calculus and all other high-level mathematics by reinforcing their algebraic and problem solving skills. Students are re-exposed to the algebraic material they learned previously, in a rigorous manner, which is done with the intention of reteaching important algebra concepts that are crucial when learning calculus. Specifically, our course reintroduces students to functions, sequencing and series, counting principles, the binomial theorem, probability, data modeling and problem approaching techniques. Tutoring 4 Less also reinforces some of the most important topics of high school trigonometry including, but not limited to; graphing, curves, the polar coordinate system, complex numbers, solving problems using the Law of Sines and Cosines, vectors, conics, and Trigonometric Identities.

## Is Pre-Calculus Hard?

Math Analysis, more commonly known as Precalculus, is a course in high school that builds on learned content from previous mathematical courses, specifically, Algebra and Trigonometry. These math subjects help students set a strong foundation for Calculus and all other college-level math courses. It can be among the most intellectually challenging math class high school students work on. Whether it is ‘hard’ or not depends on the support a student is given, and how that support plays to the student’s strengths and learning style. Students are exposed to a number of real-world applications and are expected to master the applications and techniques for solving these multi-step problems. Graphs, diagrams, and different illustrations are used throughout this course to help students visualize some of the harder concepts that they are expected to master. A graphing utility is also introduced to help students solve the problems.

By the end of our program, students will master the algebraic techniques needed in Calculus and know all of the mathematical terminology needed in order to be successful in Calculus.  Some of the key terms students in our program will learn and understand are are:

• Asymptote: A line or curve that approaches a given curve.
• Complex Number: A number consisting of a real part and an imaginary part. A complex number is an element of the complex plane.
• Complex Plane: The set of all complex numbers. Just as all real numbers can be imagined as sitting on a line, all complex numbers can be thought of as points in a plane.
• Curve: A continuous map from a one-dimensional space to an n-dimensional space. Loosely speaking, the word “curve” is often used to mean the function graph of a two- or three-dimensional curve.
• Domain: The set of values for which a function is defined.
• Ellipse: A conic section with eccentricity less than one. It resembles a squashed circle.
• Function: A relation that uniquely associates members of one set with members of another set. The term “function” is sometimes implicitly understood to mean continuous function, linear function, or function into the complex numbers.
• Hyperbola: A conic section with eccentricity greater than one. A hyperbola consists of two separate branches.

`     Excellent       Based on 17 reviews                       Angie Alvarez  2023-08-17    Tutoring 4 Less Learning is the best investment I made this summer for kids. I shopped around many tutoring places and I was more than pleased with the services my children received here. Each of my children received an individualized tutoring plan that worked for them. Touching base with the tutors after each and every session was beyond helpful. Both my children blossomed and were ready for the next grade level. Their confidence and self esteem flourished and most of all I did not have to sign a contract that obligated or locked me into months of payments. Tutoring is based on need and goals and it is month to month. Tutoring was fun for them and they looked forward to it every time. Thank you for working with my children and allowing me to afford excellent services at an affordable price!             crystal Casillas  2023-08-17    I enrolled my daughter in February 2023. I kept her in their program through summer. She was in the 2nd grade but struggling with reading and writing. With the extra help from Frank and his staff. She is now confident and reading at her grade level. I noticed improvement the first 3 months. She was awarded student of the month at her school and at tutoring 4 less. Education is an investment, it’s not cheap, and I am proud to have invested money on my daughters education. We are highly grateful to have met Frank, and his staff. We will definitely be returning back to him if we need to in the future.
