Why Is Algebra So Important?

Algebra is the study of symbols and the rules for manipulating symbols. In algebra, you will study operations and their applications for solving equations. Algebra includes everything from basic equation solving to the study of more advanced topics such as fields, groups, and rings. Levels of algebra can range from elementary to abstract.

Elementary algebra is extremely useful for many disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, medicine, and economics. It differs from arithmetic in its use of abstractions: using letters to symbolize numbers that are either unknown or able to take on many values. (For example, in x + 7 = 13, x is unknown. The law of inverses can discover its value: x = 6.) Algebra is highly useful because it provides methods for solving equations and expressing formulas that are much easier than writing everything out with words.

Success Stories
Prior to choosing Tutor the People as my verbal MCAT prep source I was a bit hesitant about having the sessions over Skype. However, after meeting for our first trial session I was positive my tutor was the man for the job. He was well organized and structured the course to fit my schedule. He was very communicative as to how the sessions would progress and where we should be towards the middle and end of our course. Not only was he a master at the verbal section, but he was able to effectively teach me his strategies, and help me craft the skill set necessary to be successful. The investment was well worth it and my tutor helped me increase my verbal score by 5 points!
Gabriel G. MCAT
After being out of school for three years, I was not excited to take the GRE. But I wanted to go to graduate school, and since most of the schools I was applying to required it, I knew I had to commit to getting a decent score. The 90-minute weekly sessions I had with my tutor made all the difference. He helped me understand that the most important part of my preparation was not to relearn all of the things I had forgotten since college, but to become a strategic test-taker. He taught me many effective strategies and tricks, which boosted my confidence and enabled me to get above average scores. He was also able to cater to my personal needs as a student. Because I was applying to graduate school for creative writing, my tutor suggested that we spent the bulk of our time focusing on the verbal section, since my prospective schools focused on that score. And that's something a GRE prep textbook or class can't offer. Most importantly, Tutor the People was the most affordable test prep service in the area, and I didn't have to purchase a single book! Thanks to my tutor, I am now on my way to graduate school next year.

The company's affable staff, flexible tutoring schedule and personalized tutoring have made my GRE studying experience easy and enjoyable. I am confident that because of my tutoring I will do very well on my exam.
