Math Tutoring

 We offer effective math tutoring in several forms, depending on the needs of each student

Enrichment Tutoring – For students who are already doing well in math but could be challenged even more. This instruction shows students the “big picture” of mathematics and how concepts are integrated.

Short-term Remediation – For good math students who have difficulty with specific topics. The tutor diagnoses the difficulty by watching the student work problems from that topic then encouraging him/her to ask questions. The teacher then chooses the most effective way to proceed: identify missing details or re-teach.

Long-term Remediation – For students who need more detail and support than is available in class. The math specialist uses a comprehensive math test, classroom materials, and student questions to diagnose the difficulty and remediation accordingly. The tutor also shows the student how to organize his or her materials. Our math specialists never do homework for the student. They may work similar problems to model the process involved in finding solutions.

What is math tutoring?

Private math tutoring allows develops essential math skills in students of all ages — math matters. Math tutoring overcomes math phobia and leads to success in school and life. In the age of smartphones, multimedia communication, and fast-paced global trade, a solid grasp of mathematics is more than a helpful tool. It has become a survival skill. Many students fall behind as they transition from elementary to middle school math. That is when math changes from a process of learning by memorization—arithmetic—to a process of learning concepts in pre-algebra and algebra.

An investment in math intervention now may save your student time and money later—and it can save your student years of frustration.

Most colleges require college algebra and statistics as a graduation requirement.
In the 21st century, students need excellent math skills—not just in school but in the ever-changing global workplace. Students without a strong math background are ill-prepared for a world economy built on knowledge of engineering, computer science, biology, and physics.

Students who have mastered math score higher on the ACT and SAT and have greater success in college across a wide range of majors. They will also have many more career options.
