# Math Lessons

As a math teacher, I understand that a lot of students struggle with algebra. In fact, in math, I think more students seek help in algebra than any other math subjects. I also believe that acquiring a strong algebra skill set is a great foundation to learn other branches of mathematics such as Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. With this in mind, I created lessons/tutorials to explain algebra concepts in a more direct and practical approach. I try to use enough examples with well-explained and detailed solutions to show how to solve certain types of problems. Moreover, I added algebra worksheets to test how well you know the concepts and challenge you to apply what you have learned so far.

The main thing is…these lessons are not intended to replace your textbooks, but provide you with free supplemental resources to help you understand algebra concepts much better.
