Helping your student feel confident and gain clarification.
Does your child excel at defining shapes and angles in their elementary math class, but struggle with charts and numerical expressions? Whether it’s one concept or twelve, a private tutor can help your child with the elementary concepts they find difficult. Your child’s tutor can help your child with concepts that may be stumping them.
Our tutors can work with your child in a one-on-one setting covering each area they are having trouble with. Unlike in a classroom setting, your child and their tutor can skip over areas they do not feel they need help with, focusing all their energy on the tough spots. Do they shine when it comes to addition but falter when it comes to fractions? Then, fractions can be covered in-depth, while addition can be omitted from the lesson. This one-on-one environment also allows your child to feel comfortable asking their tutor a multitude of questions. Most students do not feel they can ask a lot of questions in a classroom filled with their peers, which can leave them feeling alone and confused. Because they are the only pupil in the lesson, your student can feel confident asking their pressing questions to help them gain clarification.
The individualized attention from our tutors allows for the tutor to get to know your child’s interests, hobbies, and personality. This helps them relate abstract concepts (such as graphing points) to something your child is interested in (such as baseball). They may also relate word problems to real-life situations to help your student conceptualize the material. For example, giving a student a complex word problem about something that does not relate to them at all may only add to their confusion. By breaking the problem down and relating it to something familiar or fun, your student may be able to better comprehend the problem. This allows them to apply the concept to the other problems in class that they may not relate to.
