What is a typical math tutoring session like?
Our number one priority is to make sure your child understands the math concepts in such a way that he or she is able to perform extremely well on school mathematics tests. We make this possible by (1) reviewing and teaching material that your child has struggled with on past assessments, (2) helping your child with ongoing math homework assignments, (3) practicing mathematics comprehension using exercises from your child’s textbook and a variety of online math exercises, and (4) working ahead in the math class syllabus so your child is not overwhelmed when he or she is taught new material. The “common denominator” (pun intended) of our tutoring is that we listen to what our students need, and we provide them with customized instruction to teach them as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Why do so many students struggle with math? How can your tutors help?
- Unlike most other subjects in school, Math is very sequential. If a student does not grasp an idea from algebra, it can haunt him throughout his high school career. We determine what building blocks are missing in a student’s math learning and turn those weak areas into strengths.
- Math is more conceptual than knowledge-based. With many subjects, a student can easily prepare for a test by memorizing facts from a review sheet. With math, however, students become stuck as they hit concepts they cannot comprehend on their own. Our math tutors believe there is no such thing as a stupid question. They will help students wrap their minds around challenging math concepts by explaining them in a way that is clear, concise, and compassionate.
- Math can be tough to teach in a group setting. While teachers do the best they can to explain things in a way and at a pace that works for every student, given the different ability levels of students, this can be quite difficult to do. Students are often reluctant to ask questions in a group class for fear of “looking stupid.” In a private math tutoring session, your child will feel comfortable asking about whatever she needs, and she can be assured that it will be explained in a way and at a pace that optimizes her learning.
