Private Math Tutoring in Cambridge

Receive personally tailored Math lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with the best tutor for your particular needs while offering flexible scheduling to fit your busy life.

Math is one of the most valuable subjects your child can learn throughout their time in school and beyond. We all use math every day. It is used in a variety of different subjects and has a wide range of practical uses, such as measurement, division, multiplication, percentages, and telling time. Without these skills, your child is likely to have trouble in their classes and in life. If your child is currently having a tough time with math, it may be a good decision to connect them with a private math tutor. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors are happy to try to help you and your child find an independent, professional math tutor in Cambridge.

Our educational directors will connect your child with a math tutor in Cambridge, MA, after considering all of their specific goals and needs. This represents a major benefit over learning math in a traditional classroom setting, because your child's math teacher probably doesn't have enough time to work with individual students. This is not a problem for your child's private tutor though, because their tutor is completely focused on them. Their tutor can identify their strengths and weaknesses, which allows the tutor to devise a study plan that will assist them in getting the most out of their study sessions. Whether your child is having difficulty with statistics, algebraic concepts, fractions, or geometry, their math tutor can create a study plan specifically designed to help them try to do well with their course. Additionally, your child's math tutor is able to assist them in preparing for standardized tests such as the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS).

An expert tutor in Cambridge, MA, can plan engaging study sessions with your child's interests in mind so they can enjoy learning about math. This is often a problem when teaching students math because many of them dislike the subject. Your child's private math tutor is able to offer math games and activities that could help them stay engaged. If they are engaged with the subject, they are much more likely to actually put in the time and effort needed to perform well in their math class.

Your child's tutor is available to meet them at any time and location that is most convenient for you and your child. So whether your child wants to study at your house, at cafe Luna, at the Cambridge Public Library, or at North Point Park, their tutor can meet them there. Their tutor is also able to meet them either in person or face-to-face online. Let a skilled professional tutor in Cambridge teach your child all about math.

Recent Cambridge Math Tutoring Session Notes

Math Tutoring review by Linda in Cambridge
The student and I reviewed adding mixed and improper fractions from our previous lesson. We then moved on to multiplying fractions that required several steps in order to find the final answer. ( Ex 4 1/8 x 4 2/8) first, we had to change the fraction to an improper fraction, multiply it, divide, and then changing it back to a mixed fraction. The problems were much tougher but she did a good job executing the problem and working independently.

Math Tutoring review by Anna in Cambridge
The student had a very hard time remembering skills she's already mastered, but she pushed through it. The perseverance she showed was incredible, and I would say our session was the best one yet.

Math Tutoring review by Rebecca in Cambridge
Today we went through the Common Core for 6th and 7th together, discussing what we have covered, what she already knew, and what she both needed to learn or practice more. Then we jumped in with using a protractor, measuring angles, drawing angles. Then we reviewed a compass, how to find area and circumference of a circle. We worked on ratios, setting them up, simplifying, determining if correct, and filling in a variable. We also worked on area and perimeter of irregular polygons, and more.

Math Tutoring review by Jennifer in Cambridge
The student did poorly on a math pop quiz involving adding and subtracting mixed numbers, so we spent some time looking at what he did wrong. His mom had him re-do all of the questions that he got wrong on the quiz prior to my arrival. It looks like he was not simplifying his final answer correctly. When he had a mixed number that he needed to reduce to lowest terms, he simplified not only the fraction, but the whole number as well. We identified this problem and corrected it. We did many new problems to correct this method, and try to get the wrong method out of his head. The student impressed me with his knowledge of how to subtract mixed numbers, when the second number was bigger than the first. It involves borrowing from the first mixed number and making it into an improper fraction. He knew how to do this, and was quite good at it. We practiced some of these questions anyway. He will bring me the actual quiz that he did poorly on the next time I see him, so that I can identify where he went wrong with this. His teacher said that he will now work on multiplying and dividing fractions for the rest of the week. I showed him two different ways to divide fractions, and let him choose the method he prefers, which is cross multiplication. He has an excellent grasp of this concept. We practiced some of these, but he could use more practice because he is still attempting to put the denominator on the top of the fraction when using cross multiplication. This is a common error, which can only be corrected with a lot of practice. The final topic that the student will do in school involves multiplication and division of decimals. We will work on these in the future.
