**POST-SECONDARY PRE-CALCULUS TUTORING**

### Overview

Pre-Calculus courses in post-secondary are often pre-requisite courses for students who would like to enroll in a program related to mathematics, sciences, business, or engineering but did not fulfill the pre-calculus requirement in high school. It is designed to build student skills in problem solving, number concepts, and number operations. Students will work with mathematical patterns and relations including manipulating variables and equations. Trigonometry is also a key focus in Pre-Calculus.

### Key Concepts

### How Math Tutor Network can help?

As tutoring demands are the highest for Math 11 and 12, Math Tutor Network has specialized tutors who tutors mainly Math 11 and 12.

### Our Recommendations

With or without tutoring lessons, students should always complete their homework as best as they can. A good approach is to give each question the best effort before checking the answers. Before quizzes or tests, try to do a set of questions and resist from checking the answer until all questions are completed. By doing so, students will be more prepared in a test-writing environment.

### Tutoring Lessons

For students who only require help on homework problems and for test preparation, Math Tutor Network recommends one 2-hour lesson per week.

For students having difficulties understanding the concepts the teacher go over in class, Math Tutor Network recommends two or more 2-hour lessons per week.
