How can Math tutoring help you?

From the time we learn to count, we are exposed to mathematical concepts every day. If your child is in elementary school, they may be learning about addition, multiplication, and fractions. Your junior high school student may start working with decimals and pre-algebra concepts. Your high-school-age child may be taking geometry, trigonometry, or calculus.

As the concepts to which your child is exposed change and evolve, your student may find that these new classes are not as easy as their previous ones. If you see this in your child, you could consider connecting with a personal tutor. If you are seeking math tutors near Albany, NY, Varsity Tutors may help you connect with a tutor who may meet your needs. These tutors may interview your child, learn where they need the most help, and come up with a lesson plan that suits their needs.

Varsity Tutors connects students at all levels with tutors who have extensive teaching experience at those levels. Since many of these teachers have years of classroom experience at their disposal, they are uniquely qualified to identify problem areas. They may then apply their classroom skills on an individual level to your student. In addition to building their math skills, an expert math tutor may also boost your student's confidence in their abilities.

Let us connect you with a talented math tutor in Albany, NY, who is truly excited about math and teaching it to others. The typical classroom surroundings may often be a less than effective learning environment. Teachers must present the same lesson, in the same way, to dozens of students at the same time. An individual tutor may instruct your child in ways that work for them, rather than for everyone else.

A major source of poor math grades comes from "test anxiety." Students may place tremendous pressures on themselves during exams, especially state-mandated exams like the Regents, or college admissions tests like the ACT and SAT. A skilled math tutor may also teach your child some vital test-taking strategies and remove much of the stress of exam day.

Our educational directors may help you find a professional math tutor in Albany who may cater to your child's every need. Your child may meet with a tutor after school or on weekends. Tutoring sessions are also available through our online live interactive learning platform, which lets your student communicate with their tutor through a real-time video conference.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"For this session, we went through factoring and using FOIL for trinomials. The student seemed to have an issue with the strategies initially, but after the session she was able to factor and do FOIL without any assistance. "

★★★★★

"We started by going through some things that the student had trouble with in the past, including word problems relating to areas. Then we covered the use and identification of if-then moves to solve equations. We finished with some practice on the relationship between distance, rate, and time."

★★★★

"The student and I continued to work on Algebra review for his upcoming credit exam. We finished chapter 7 today, and he should finish the Chapter 6 test, Chapter 1-6 cumulative review, and Chapter 7 test by the upcoming Sunday. During his spring break, he should be focusing on reviewing for Algebra 1 as well as previewing Algebra 2."

★★★★

"The student and I worked on what his teacher is calling direct relations. y=kx. I think the class is going to try and move to generalize the idea of ratios and linear equations. I tried to do so graphically with him. He seems to be on point with the material. I also found out that he got a 97 on the last test. This is really reaffirming. "

★★★★

"Today we reviewed for her upcoming test. The test will cover simplifying expressions, FOIL, finding the zeros of an equation, etc. She had a very good understanding of the material. We also reviewed some terminology that might be on the test. She didn't struggle with anything. "

★★★★

"The student and I went over finding slope, midpoint, and distance. We also went over simplifying radicals. The student currently has an 83 in the class. I wrote down the perfect squares for her and had her write down the formulas a few times to ensure that she had those down correctly."

★★★★★

"The student and I continued our review of conic sections, this time focusing on hyperbolas. We went through several example problems that involved finding the characteristics of hyperbolic functions and graphing those functions using those characteristics. The student's biggest struggle was in remembering the equations needed to find those characteristics. However, after creating a cheat sheet for him to use as a guide, he was able to solve most problems on his own."

★★★★★

"Today, the student worked on algebra (completing the square) and also world history. She is currently learning about Southeast Asia in world history and is working on learning unfamiliar terms. Great job today."

★★★★

"In the last session with the student, we covered scientific notations. After a little bit of a refresher, she was able to work through most of the questions. She independently took the evaluation at the end of the session and scored 100%. She can easily tackle most of the problems but will need a quick refresher through most of the topics."

★★★★★

"The student had a project for school that I helped him with and we went over his homework, which was multiplying binomials, and he had absolutely no problem with it. He had a test and he got it back. I made a suggestion with his mom that maybe every other week, or times when we have a little time after doing homework, I could put together five questions or so from his book or from his previous learning targets, and I'll have him take them in a "test-like" manner. She thought it was a good idea, so we are going to try that out and see if it helps."

★★★★

"The student and I went over a new chapter they were covering in class that had to do with sequences. He and I worked through book problems in order to practice for a quiz he had coming up in the class. I was able to help him understand mathematical sequences by the end of the session. Everything went well."

★★★★★

"The student and I met to discuss a make-up test that she is preparing to take tomorrow. It's on special forms of integration. She displayed significant gaps in understanding the first time she took the test earning a 30, so I focused my session on how to study calculus when teachers are going to continually revisit content on tests. We discussed how math is like a language where the trigonometric functions have a distinct grammar that needs to be treated on its own."
