Math Tutoring for 6th - 8th Grade Students
We realize that middle school math courses move quickly, leaving little time for review of foundational skills and math facts. This can leave your child frustrated and confused when new concepts are presented.
Our effective and engaging instruction will help your child to:
Eliminate Homework Frustration
We can incorporate homework completion into tutoring sessions with the goal of giving students the skills to confidently, correctly and independently complete future homework assignments.
Fill learning gaps
We identify skills and concepts from previous math courses which students have not learned to mastery. Then, we teach, practice and review those skills and concepts until students are able to independently and confidently use them.
Be successful in accelerated math courses
The accelerated math courses move very quickly, and the tests require students to apply concepts in new and challenging ways. Our tutoring allows students to practice many different types of problems and to receive immediate feedback on their work, leading to increased confidence and improved test scores.
Build confidence with new classroom material
Our 1-on-1 tutoring sessions allow students to ask questions in a safe environment free from distractions. We clearly model how to solve problems, provide practice problems to solve with students to build confidence and gradually move towards the goal of students successfully completing problems independently.
Improve quiz and test scores
We are familiar with how the math content is tested. We can practice with common types of exam questions, which gives students confidence when taking a quiz or test in class.
Consistently and correctly use math procedures
Math procedures can be confusing and difficult for students to recall. Our goal is to help students make sense of procedures, so the steps are easier for them to remember. With consistent practice, students build confidence and success with many different procedures.
Develop math fact fluency
When math facts have not yet been mastered, we find ways to help each student master essential math facts. When parents are interested, we create a motivating at-home practice plan to encourage students to practice their math facts daily.
Check their math work
We help students to find errors in their work and to identify when their answer does not make sense.
Have enrichment opportunities
We can help students extend their understanding of all math concepts and topics in motivating and engaging ways.
