This website was created to help students with Algebra 1 without having to turn to paid outlets like self-help books. I’m the main author of the material on this site, because of my particular situation growing up, I was forced to learn Algebra 1 completely on my own. I was given a textbook and was basically put in the corner of a classroom with instructions to have at it. While I eventually made my way through it all after months of grinding, I decided that I didn’t want that fate for anyone else, and so here we are.
I’ve always thought that if I was to give free high school Algebra 1 help online that it would have to be in a different format than when I teach and tutor students in real life. The reason for this is that in real life, I can be there to adjust what the students are learning based on their own personalities and the situations that come up. On the Internet, this is much harder to do, so I’ve decided on a special format that will hopefully make it easier for high school students to learn Algebra 1 online.
There are three main parts of getting Algebra 1 help online. The first part is dealing with the anxiety of algebra, the second part is learning the concepts of algebra, and the third part is reinforcing and applying the concepts with exercises and problems. To handle the anxiety that comes along with trying to learn Algebra 1, it’s best to develop a good mindset towards what you’re doing that is more about the process instead of judging yourself negatively for not understanding everything right away. To learn the concepts of Algebra 1, you should take your time and slowly work your way through instructional material that centers on the concept you’re trying to learn. There is plenty of this material available for all topics in Algebra 1 if you follow the navigation in the sidebar of this website.
The final part of learning high school Algebra 1 is working through exercises and problems, which you should do with your textbook and any handouts your teacher gives you.
