STUDENT TESTED AND APPROVED!

If you suffer from math anxiety, then sign up for private tutoring with Bob Miller!

Do mathematics and algebraic formulas leave your head spinning?

If so, you are like hundreds of thousands of other students who face math-especially, algebra-with fear. Luckily, there is a cure: Bob Miller's Clueless series! Like the teacher you always wished you had (but never thought existed), Bob Miller brings knowledge, empathy, and fun to math and pre-algebra. He breaks down the learning process in an easy, non-technical way and builds it up again using his own unique methods.

Meant to bridge the gulf between the student, the textbook, and the teacher, Basic Math and Pre-Algebra for the Clueless is packed with all the latest information you need to conquer basic math and pre-algebra, including:

  • Anxiety-reducing features on every page
  • Quick tips for solving difficult problems
  • Full explanations of basic principles to make hard problems easy
  • Bite-sized math portions that short study sessions (and attention spans)

“I am always delighted when a student tells me that he or she hated math … but taking a class with me has made math understandable … even enjoyable.” Now it's your turn. Sharpen your #2 pencils, and let Bob Miller show you how to never be clueless again!
