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
- 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!
