Elementary subjects set the foundation for young students to tackle more complex concepts in the future. In-house math tutoring not only helps children who are struggling with Math, but also students who are proficient in math and want to learn how to approach equations in different ways or want to strengthen their skills further.
An in-house elementary school math tutor will cover the fundamentals of the Grade 2-6 Calgary math curriculum, including:
Math is a universal language and helps children develop skills that go beyond the classroom, including critical thinking, problem-solving, reasoning, analytical thinking, and much more. An in-house tutor will cover the fundamental basics of elementary math - but let’s take a look at how working with a tutor can truly help your child succeed.
In a regular classroom setting, there are children who understand math right away while some need more time and assistance to grasp the concepts. While this is normal, children who need more help often feel less confident or compare themselves to others. Most feel too shy to raise their hands and ask questions, for fear of judgement from their peers.
With an empathetic math tutor, children receive one-on-one guidance and are encouraged to ask questions. This builds their confidence in the classroom and teaches them that it’s ok to ask for help.
Everyone learns differently - some learn best through memorization while others prefer visual cues. Although teachers can teach in different ways to help their students understand the concept, they’re of course limited in their ability to customize the lesson for each student within a classroom setting.
A private tutor can take their time to understand your child’s unique learning style and customize the lesson according to how they process new information. They focus on their strengths which consequently helps them become a better learner in math and other subjects.
We believe that there’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ student - rather, a child is not receiving the time and attention they need because a teacher’s attention is split among a large group of students. Often, a lack of confidence in learning leads to procrastination and a decreased interest in going to school or doing homework.
With personalized, focused attention, a tutor can help your child build a good foundation for learning - and this is key for their success not only in Math but in all areas of their life.
