I can help people "translate" a word problem into an algebra equation. (With very basic questions, I can show people how to think through the problem and solve it without using algebra.) In most cases, I can then show a step-by-step solution of the equation. I do not do trig or calculus and I do not solve problems involving exponents.
I have tutored basic math and algebra for over 30 years. I have taught classes to prepare students to take the PSAT, SAT, GRE and GMAT college admission tests, all of which feature word problems. I have a lot of experience with solving multiple these exam problems without using algebra at all.
