Our approach to Math Tutoring
Address urgent problems first
Grades are one of the most important factors in college admissions, so our tutors focus on improving grades first. We’ll get right to work on helping your child with their upcoming quiz, test, or homework assignment.
Bridge fundamental gaps
Math builds upon itself. Even if we begin working with a student when he is in calculus, our tutors often discover that the student is struggling because they failed to grasp a key algebra concept. Our tutors will ensure your child is confident with the fundamental concepts that serve as building blocks as they progress in math.
Every child can be a “math person”
Learning to engage in “productive struggle” is extremely important in math, and key to developing capacity as a math learner. By employing a Socratic approach, we help students build their own “internal tutor.” When they’re faced with a roadblock in the future, they will have the tools to break through it.
