How can a Elementary Math tutor help you?
Understanding basic mathematics is required to succeed professionally and academically. We work with percents, decimals, and fractions on a daily basis. If you have a child in grade school who is struggling with these concepts, you should consider working with a private tutor who might help them get the assistance they need to succeed. Find an expert elementary math tutor in Jacksonville, FL, today by contacting Varsity Tutors' educational directors.
It is normal for students to struggle with elementary math. Keeping up with the course content requires them to pay attention during the lessons, while typically studying in a passive learning environment. Because of this, private lessons may be an excellent way to try to help your child further their understanding in the course. Contact Varsity Tutors for assistance in connecting with elementary math tutors near Jacksonville. Your child may be able to work with an experienced tutor who may create a customized study program designed to suit their needs. In addition, private lessons also give your child the opportunity to learn actively, and they may be able to work with their tutor to solve problems and learn new concepts.
A professional elementary math tutor in Jacksonville may help your child take the steps necessary to succeed in their course. Since your child's needs are the tutor's top priority, they may be dedicated to ensuring your child gets the assistance needed to understand elementary mathematics. Their tutor may be able to create worksheets and activities that are fun and engaging, but also help teach your child the fundamentals of elementary mathematics.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
At the beginning, the student struggled the most with understanding fractions on a number line and measuring angles with a protractor. Since he was very attentive and motivated to learn, he quickly began to understand these complex concepts as we talked through them and practiced them. A lot of words would confuse him, so what worked best was when I would visually demonstrate on the whiteboard, on my laptop or on paper, step-by-step, in basic terms, how to solve problems within these concepts. After demonstrating step-by-step and providing him with mnemonic devices to aid his memory (ex: Imagine the angle is within a circle/pie), he was excited and prepared to practice problems within these concepts himself. He would work at it, communicating his thought process with me the entire time, until he fully understood what he was doing and could solve problems within these concepts without much thought. He even began to think of his own mnemonic devices. At the conclusion of our session, he told me the different concepts that he would like to go over in our next session and he seemed a little concerned about the small amount of time his teacher was able to spend on concepts that he thought he may need to understand much more for the exam. I told him to bring completed, graded worksheets to our next session so that we can review anything he may be struggling with, and prepare for the exam. I did not receive any resistance, unwillingness or lack of effort to anything that we spoke about or covered during our session. The student was more knowledgeable than he thought (Ex: "Wow, I didn't even know I could do that!") and he was motivated and confident, which was the greatest win from the session."
Student A - He had completed his homework prior to my arrival and did not bring it home for me to check so we focused on new material. We used a 5th grade workbook. This involved practice with long division and multiplication, adding and subtracting mixed fractions, and more. I used this opportunity to teach Angus how to complete long division to arrive at decimals instead of remainders. Angus did very and picked up quickly on the steps to divide to arrive at a quotient with decimals in the value.
Student B - He worked on Wednesday's work and I checked it for accuracy. We used the 5th grade section of their workbook. This involved practice with long division and multiplication, adding and subtracting mixed fractions, and more. Again, I used this opportunity to teach Student B how to complete long division to arrive at decimals instead of remainders. He learned this quickly and had no problems repeating the steps with additional practice problems I gave him.
Student C - We used the 6th grade section of their workbook to practice and learn new math concepts. This involved practice with calculating volume, adding and subtracting mixed fractions, and more. We also some worksheets to practice additional concepts, such as recognizing the places of values in whole numbers and decimal numbers. We also practiced inequalities.
All of the children are doing relatively well with reading word problems and understanding how to set them up as well as how to compute them. I believe Students A and C could benefit from spending some time memorizing the multiplication table as I've noticed they tend to make minor multiplication errors (e.g., 7 x 8 = 54, 9 x 7 = 72) that then affects their results on long division and multiplication problems."
For reading we reviewed the student's homework for the week and read out loud to check student fluency rate. We reviewed a few skills she can use in the classroom to practice comprehension."
