Private math tutors for elementary students
Present-day math is taught very differently from the way many of us were taught as children. There is now more emphasis on being able to show your understanding of mathematical concepts rather than simply being able to memorize number facts. Students are encouraged to use critical thinking, logical reasoning, and creativity to solve math problems and explore real-world applications of mathematical concepts. Visual aids are also taught and used today to help with understanding. Tape diagrams, number bonds, and number paths are just a few of the common terms used to describe visual aids.
Our math tutors near you are teachers who can help your child understand the math they are doing in school and have the confidence to explain their thinking to others! Some of the curricula our math tutors use in their schools include: EngageNY, TERC Investigations, GO Math!, Math in Focus, IXL, Zearn, Singapore Math, and more.
Covering all math curricula, from pre-k through 6th grade.
Different schools use different math curricula so it is important that your child’s tutor has an understanding of what curricula your child’s school uses. Our tutors are happy to collaborate with parents and the child’s teachers to make sure the language and methods used are consistent. It is so important to get help as soon as your child shows signs of difficulty. As we all know, math builds on top of previous concepts from one semester to the next, and from one year to another. It is so important that children have a solid foundation in math early on.

How a math tutor can help young students
Some of the concepts our students struggle with in math include: addition, subtraction, place value, fluency, word problems or story problems, multiplication, division, fractions, telling time, and more. With our younger early childhood students, they often struggle with addition and subtraction as numbers get bigger.
This is also connected to place value–the numerical value that every digit in a number has based on its position. It can be a hard concept to thoroughly grasp, and unfortunately the pacing of instruction in a classroom does not stop for the students who do not understand it. This is why private tutoring early on can be so beneficial.
Similarly, word problems (often called story problems) are also another big hurdle for many students. This is due to the student now having to use number sense along with reading skills and reading comprehension to correctly problem solve. A private math tutor can help your child by reviewing or introducing specific strategies they need support with.
