Frequently Asked Questions

No, but the Aleks(R) will do an initial assessment.  Students have the option to move into the another class (up or down), as needed.

The typical sequence is:  Pre-Algebra  –>  Algebra 1  –>  Geometry  –>  Algebra 2  –>  Pre-Calculus.

Please email me if your student is following a different math path.

I use

Aleks is an AI-based website.  It learns what the student already knows, so it works with students on the topics they are ready to learn.

Yes.  All classes include additional “above-grade-level” material, similar to a what a public-school, honors-level class would cover.

Yes!  I highly encourage students to use their calculators, especially to check their work.  

I recommend the Casio fx-300ES PLUS, because it has a large display and handles fractions beautifully.

For Algebra 2 and above, I highly encourage students to use the Desmos app because it is easier to understand than a handheld graphing calculator. 

If your student needs a graphing calculator, I recommend the TI-84 –OR– the Casio fx-9750

The tuition covers access to the website, weekly group learning sessions, plus individual tutoring outside of class, as needed.

Other class supplies (such as a calculator and notebook) are not included.

The website access code is not refundable.  It is due June 1st (or upon registration).

If you drop the class during the year, I will refund any other tuition you have paid, on a pro-rated basis.

Tutoring is free for my students, during the academic year, on an “as-needed” basis.  

Students who are not keeping up with the material, or require significant outside help, may be dropped from the class.

I do not offer tutoring for students who are not enrolled in my classes.

All of my classes are Honors level.  They are not centered around any specific test.
