How can a 10th Grade Math tutor help your child?

Although every stage of education is important for your child's success in mathematics, the early years of high school are particularly crucial in preparing him or her for future challenges. From simple advancement into eleventh grade math, to college entrance exams, to a plethora of jobs and careers, the skills learned in algebra and geometry are used more frequently than you may realize. The math courses that your child takes in ninth through eleventh grade will be the ones most proximate to taking the SAT or ACT. These math courses, therefore, will be the classes that prepare your student for these important standardized tests.

Tenth grade math is often the only exposure students get to the complex field of geometry, a skill set needed for careers in construction, engineering, science, and architecture. Falling behind during this critical course can leave a lasting impact. You child simply needs to know how to work with angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, and coordinate planes. The operations with triangles and circles may seem like oddities at first, but are the building blocks for bigger things to come. They'll be working with two-dimensional shapes and then move on to three-dimensional figures, learning their parts, cross sections, and how to make accurate measurements.

If you are concerned that your child's confusion about mathematical concepts could present an obstacle to doing well in his or her 10th grade math class, math tutoring can help your child brush up on the concepts that confuse him or her the most. That's why you should consider finding a 10th grade math tutor to supplement the instruction your child is receiving in school. A tutor can help fill in any gaps in the intricacies of calculating area and perimeter, or surface area or volume. From symmetry and similarity to probability and vectors, each lesson is leading to something else. Trigonometry enters the picture in 10th grade. It is a perfect example of cumulative mathematics; one must understand the angles and parts of triangles and be able to calculate ratios and sines, cosines, and tangents.

Personal tutoring can help even the strongest of students improve their mathematics skills. Given the stakes of this period of your child's education, there can be little arguing against providing him or her with as much help as possible. At this point in a student's math education, the course material is becoming difficult enough that every student has his or her own specific strengths and struggles. A private math tutor for your tenth grader can help target just those topics that he or she needs to address, setting your child on the way to mathematics success in as little time as necessary.

Regardless of their progress, your child will need to be ready in time for the SAT. The 54 math questions include 44 multiple-choice questions. There is a limited amount of time, so the pressure is on, which can further exacerbate the issue if the student is not familiar with the topics. Basic calculators are permitted, but these can only do so much. A math tutor will help a student prepare well in advance of the test.

Whether your child needs a tutor to help pass a math class, or if he or she needs extra support to prepare for the upcoming rigors of college entrance exams, Varsity Tutors can help you select the perfect tutor to meet your child's needs. Tutors will hold sessions wherever and whenever it is best for your schedule, whether that is in the branch of your local library, at a local coffee shop, in your home, or even online.

Math tutors can help you lay the foundation for your student's success in high school math and future academic endeavors. Contact us today and let a private tutor provide your tenth grader with exceptional math tutoring!

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"Today, the student and I continued to go over review problems, for her geometry final test. This covered many topics, including using congruency to solve figures, finding the area of various figures, and find arc lengths given other related geometric values. She did very well in solving problems, including problems where she initially did not know how to solve the problem, and was given a small hint, in order to solve it. There were some problems, related to memorization of formulas, that she could not solve. As such, she will review and memorize these equations. She understood explanations for complex problems very well. We will meet again at least once more before her final."

★★★★

"The student had just started a new unit on trigonometric functions, so we went over her worksheets and also worked through some homework problems. We sketched a lot of graphs and triangles, and in the end, it seemed as though she had a good grasp on the subject matter. She seemed comfortable with all the problems, and was able to work without much assistance."

★★★★★

"We went through his review for his final. It was 51 questions form the beginning of the semester to the end. We covered polynomials, different kind of divisions, factoring, simplifying, logarithm, exponents, word problems and graph of exponential, rational and conics as well. He is doing well and just needs to review them once more. "

★★★★★

"For this lesson, we looked at perimeter and area and worked on understanding area formulas. The student got a very good grip on this after repeated tries. It is good that we got to touch on special right triangles, as he seemed to pick those up quickly."

★★★★

"We reviewed more of a past geometry test dealing with some of the more difficult problem solving techniques. The student is well prepared for his final math test at this point. His fundamentals and recall of relevant basic formulas and mathematical methods (Pythagorean Theorem, algebraic methods, basic trigonometric functions, 30-60-90 triangle identities, etc.) will allow him to solve a majority of problems quickly and correctly. We also began an advanced geometric problem relating the ratios of areas of generic solid bodies, while asking for the resulting ratio of their volumes. While this problem will most likely not appear on the test, we found it would require a similar process to elimination and substitution methods of solving two equations with two variables."

★★★★★

"The student and I worked two hours today in preparation for his final, and worked one hour last week, which is included in today's session. We covered some word problems and review material from his algebra class."

★★★★★

"The student and I got organized for the coming week of finals and end-of-semester assignments. We made a detailed, day-by-day checklist, which he showed to his mother. As long as he follows the plan step-by-step, I think he'll be ok. He may just need some prodding from Mom and Dad to make sure he's keeping up with the work."

★★★★★

"We worked on review problems for the assessment test. We focused on imaginary numbers. We did powers of I simplifications, with different coefficients and addition and multiplication. We also did simplifying to a+bi form. We worked on identifying the point on an imaginary vs real graph, and then calculating the value of two points added or multiplied."

★★★★★

"The student's class has moved into review so we worked on 2 review packets that her teacher gave her. She also told me that she did well on her probability test; she earned and 89, and was very pleased. "

★★★★

"We continued our work today in Chapter 11 in the student's book, which deals with circles. We went over a handful of theorems having to do with chords, tangent lines, and perpendicular bisectors. We did several practice problems to work on the application of these theorems. It became evident that the student could use a small bit of algebra review, so I gave him a few exercises to practice the FOIL method. I am seeing him again on Wednesday."

★★★★★

"We reviewed for his Chapter 12 test, and outlined what we would do to study for his final. He would review all of the odds for each chapter, and once he had done that and determined if the answers were correct or not, we would go through together and work on the problems he had concerns with. I"

★★★★

"The student has a final coming up. Today we spent the entire session going over a practice test that is due on Monday. The student did a decent job remembering what we have been going over the last month or so. Next session for this upcoming Tuesday."
