Class Description

Studio 37: Algebra 1 provides a standard-based, technology-rich, 1-on-1 instruction to support your student’s unique learning needs. With a proven, innovative methodology, we utilize math coaches to foster each student’s ability to reach their potential. Through consistent feedback, students advance from direct instruction to independent work, according to their personal pace and understanding of the material. The math coach will guide students through direct instruction, tutoring, and homework problems which have been pre-recorded to give students on-demand learning for each lesson and homework assignment. The pre-recorded step-by-step videos, coupled with live mentoring, help ensure that the student feels confident as they learn the material with fidelity. The course is built to deliver a comprehensive and engaging experience, building on twenty-first century skills.

The online curriculum includes 15 chapters, which are aligned with state standards, and typically runs two semesters. Students will be expected to attend the small-group office hours every two weeks for assistance and testing. Coaches will meet with each student individually every other week to review progress, answer questions, and provide overall support. Parents and students may select the math coach who best matches their schedule and student’s learning style.

Studio 37 Algebra 1 has been aligned to state standards and may be submitted to your charter school for A-G approval. The course starts the first week of September; however, students may enroll later in the semester and will be guided to finish the course work on time. 

This curriculum has been reviewed and positively recognized by WASC, and has also received numerous accolades from Apple, the California Department of Education, the Los Angeles County Office of Education, and multiple universities.

*The course syllabus is aligned with UC requirements but must be submitted to your charter school for final A-G approval.

Instructor & ScheduleBiography
Instructor: Paula Tsoi-A-Sue

Spring - Wednesdays,
January 26, 2022
@ 11 a.m.
Coach Paula majored in physical chemistry and minored in mathematics at UCLA. During her last year there she began coaching gymnastics in South Pasadena and grew to love working with the kids and helping them break skills down into manageable pieces. When she began tutoring some students of the gym, she adapted that teaching philosophy to math and science. With over 6 years of tutoring experience, Paula believes that the key to success in learning is helping students trust in their own abilities.

“I acknowledge and appreciate your hard work in organizing this fantastic lesson…some of us adults (who have been out of school for 100 years) can appreciate it even more, because tutoring your own children is not always that easy.” - E.T.

“Thank you for all you do and all that you are doing...for your dedication for seeing that all the students under your care are getting everything they need to succeed in life. I am proud to have seen this with my own eyes; more parents should see the outstanding work of these teachers. God Bless You.“-F.B.

“I really think what you do with your website is amazing. It helps me tremendously. I watch it almost daily. I think it is fantastic. I have learned FOIL. It is a huge help if [my daughter] has questions at home...it is extremely valuable to have the weekly homework assignments available for me to see.”-N.R.
