## Our Approach to Math Tutoring

Through experience we know that **math tutoring needs to do more than help a student with his or her current math homework**. If a student is having difficulty with math today, it’s usually due to a lack of understanding of several concepts that weren’t learned well in previous years.

We provide math tutoring and instruction for students in

- Elementary school grades
- Middle school grades
- Pre-Algebra
- Algebra 1 and Algebra 2

### Our Math Tutoring Is Different

To help a student overcome what’s holding them back, **we enhance math tutoring by also covering topics that need to be relearned, or perhaps learned for the first time.** Students appreciate our logical process that

- Uncovers and strengthens areas of weakness
- Removes the fear of embarrassment
- Removes frustration
**Improves understanding**- Leads to “Now I get it!” responses
- Leads to
**improved progress in math class**

“Our youngest son really struggled with math concepts and seemingly continued to fall further and further behind in school. After a very successful completion of your reading program, we began the math program with similar results. We have been more then pleased with the results and I cannot put words to the confidence that our son gained with the power of knowledge.” *– Parent of a 6th grade student*

### Insufficient Understanding Can Be Corrected

When you’ve heard your child say math is hard, or when you’ve observed they avoid working on math problems, **they are probably having difficulty because they have a weak understanding in one or more topics from previous years**. In our private tutoring environment the student can ask any question without embarrassment, which leads to improved understanding.

In math, if a topic hasn’t been mastered, understanding the next topic is more difficult. If the student doesn’t understand one or two related topics, it’s like trying to climb a ladder with one or two rungs missing. This can lead to a feeling of hopelessness and math becomes the dreaded and “hated” subject.

A** weak understanding of past math concepts leads to difficulty with the current math topics**. It’s critically important that a student discover the missing pieces of the math puzzle and gain a correct understanding.

### Summer – Time For A Math Refresh

During the summer months we provide a thorough review of what was covered in the previous school year. **A summer review prevents the significant loss of math skills during summer vacation.**

We use well designed materials, written by Michigan math teachers, to provide a complete review of the just completed school-year math course.

Weekly assignments typically require just an hour and a half of work at home. The review process provides a clarification of misunderstood topics. **This builds confidence and makes the next year’s math course much easier!**
