Precalc Tutoring Kick It Up Another Notch

Precalculus expects a lot out of its student. It builds upon the algebra learned up to this point, but asks the student to perform procedures far longer in length and complexity than those they may have seen in algebra two. There is no shortage of topics students frequently have issues with: factoring polynomials, graphing rational functions, logarithms, radians and the unit circle, graphing trig functions and inverse trig functions, trig identities, the laws of sines and cosines, and the complex plane. It’s a wild ride the whole year long. For some students, it is the last math class they will take, but for others looking to invest into their mathematical education more heavily, this is a make or break year.

A significant increase in difficulty

Many students who have excelled in math previously struggle with precalculus. This class is no joke.

Calculators commonly banned

Many teachers ban the use of calculators for portions of this class. Each class is different, but some ban the use for the entire year.
