Elementary School Math Tutoring FAQ

Math is a subject that introduces new concepts based on the foundation of what students have already studied. Elementary School Math provides the baseline that all subsequent math courses build upon, making it an essential subject for students to master. If your child may be falling behind their peers in mathematics, Varsity Tutors can set you up with an experienced Elementary School Math tutor who can help them work toward their academic goals.

Here are some of the most important skills that Elementary School Mathematics tutoring can help students learn:

Addition/Subtraction

Multiplication/Division

Word Problems

Counting Money

Reading Clocks/Calendars

Fractions

Decimals

The best way to teach these concepts depends on your child's learning style. If they are a visual learner, a number line and/or counting cubes may prove to be helpful visual aids to illustrate what a math problem is asking them to do. Alternatively, an auditory learner may benefit more from listening to the Schoolhouse Rock songs about counting by threes and fives. While a classroom teacher is often unable to cater instruction to an individual student's needs like this, elementary school tutoring sessions may be adapted specifically to your child.

Elementary School Mathematics tutoring also allows a student to work at their preferred pace. Some students get bored because new material is not introduced quickly enough to hold their attention. In this scenario, a tutor can aggressively increase the pacing to keep their student engaged. Of course, it can be scaled back down if a student starts to feel overwhelmed.

Likewise, Grammar School math tutoring can backtrack and review older material that a student needs to complete current assignments. For instance, word problems demand some reading comprehension skills, but reading comprehension is generally not taught in math class. A math tutor can still review it though, setting a student up for success when they return to word problems.

An Elementary School Math tutor can take the time to forge a personal relationship with your child, allowing them to incorporate aspects of their daily life into every session. For example, pizza night can illustrate fractions by examining how much pizza everybody ate. If the student is interested in a new toy, the item's price may be displayed in various arrangements of coins to show how different configurations can add up to the same amount. This can be a great way to make study sessions more fun for a young child!
