Chicago Math Tutoring FAQ

If you have a student who you think could benefit from study help in math, or you are currently taking high school or college-level courses and are seeking assistance, contact Varsity Tutors to be connected with first-rate Chicago math tutors. Math is a foundational subject, and a lot of other disciplines rely on math to one extent or another, especially in the sciences. That means that doing well in math, or doing poorly, can have a cascading effect on a student's performance in other subjects. We can help students get the help they need so they can feel confident when approaching mathematical concepts, whether in their math classes or in any of their other subjects.

How is Chicago math tutoring different from classroom learning?

A teacher in a classroom has a lot of ground to cover, and a limited time to cover it. To get through everything, they often rely on a somewhat rigid curriculum and can move at a pretty steady pace. That can mean that there isn't always enough time to address every student's individual concerns. If a student is struggling with the material, they can feel like they are being left behind. With Chicago math tutoring, the student can be more than just a face in the crowd. The individualized attention provided by private instruction means that the student's concerns can be addressed when they come up. That kind of targeted instruction means that they get the help they need with the specific topics they are struggling with.

At the start of Chicago math tutoring sessions, tutors can begin by assessing a student's learning preferences and determining which kinds of teaching methods they are going to respond best to. From there, they can tailor their study plans a curriculum to best match the student's preferences. For example, let's say you have a grade-schooler who responds well to visual learning techniques. Their tutor might employ flashcards or other visual aids in helping them as they learn about rewriting fractions. Or, maybe you are taking a college algebra class, and you typically respond well to verbal back-and-forth. Your instructor might take a more Socratic approach, discussing with you the theories behind things like polynomials and radical expressions. When you learn according to your preferred style, you can engage with the material more readily, and understand it on a more fundamental level.

When a student is working with Chicago math tutors, they are able to set the pace. When topics come up that the student is already familiar with, they can skim through those quickly, or even skip them entirely, if that is appropriate. When they encounter topics they are less confident about, their instructor can slow down, and give those topics added attention. When the student has a say in what gets covered, their needs can be more effectively addressed.

What are the benefits of studying with Chicago math tutors near me?

The individualized instruction that focuses on your specific needs is probably the greatest benefit that comes out of studying with Chicago math tutors. It's important to know that, because of the one-on-one attention you get from your tutor, their instruction can also be responsive. It can adapt to your needs should they change over the course of your sessions. You might start out thinking that you need to be focusing your energy on studying limits and continuity. But after a few sessions, you and your tutor recognize that you are making great strides in this area. In that case, you can move quickly onto something that you find a little more challenging, like parametric equations, or vector-valued functions.

When a student works closely with Chicago math tutors, they can develop a rapport with their tutor over time. Working closely together means that the student can become comfortable in the learning environment, and sometimes this is key to gaining a similar level of comfort with the material. When a student is struggling, that can sour the whole learning experience, but when they work with someone they get to know and trust, that can have a lasting impact on their attitude towards the material.

With Chicago math tutoring, you can have your questions answered immediately. Whether you have a student who is beginning their journey, or you have a middle schooler grappling with some higher-order concepts, or whether you are a high schooler or college student embarking on your math sequence, it is important to remember that concepts in math are often cumulative. Working one-on-one with an experienced tutor means that little misconceptions can be caught early and addressed before they become a bigger learning obstacle further down the road.

For parents of younger students, the benefits of Chicago math tutoring aren't going to be limited to students. Your student's instructor can help you with tips for assisting them when they are working at home. They might show you how to use various colored highlighters, for example, to distinguish between different mathematical concepts.

How can I fit Chicago math tutoring into my busy schedule?

With everything going on in your life, it can be hard to find an open slot in your schedule for study help. That's why Varsity Tutors does everything we can to make it easy to connect with the best Chicago math tutors for your needs. You can choose between online and in-person sessions, with the same level of quality instruction no matter which way you decide.

The online option utilizes our Live Learning Platform. The platform gives you more freedom to decide where you will log in from. It also features a number of exciting learning tools like video chat, a shared document editor, and a virtual whiteboard which can enhance the quality of the sessions.

The video chat function allows for face-to-face interaction between student and tutor, which means that questions can be addressed in real-time, as they come up. With the shared document editor, your student can work through challenging concepts with their tutor, like three-step problems, or combining like terms. A tutor might use the virtual whiteboard to illustrate geometric topics like planes, angles, and quadrilaterals. Plus, sessions with Chicago math tutors are recorded, and those recordings can be accessed any time if a student ever wants to go over something again in their own.

Thanks to the Live Learning Platform, students can attend sessions from just about anywhere, so long as they have access to a reliable internet connection and a compatible device. You don't have to worry about a commute, or finding some out-of-the-way place. If it's most convenient for your family for your student to work from the kitchen table, they can do that. Or maybe sometimes your house is a little chaotic and you want to go someplace a little more tranquil, you can just log in from a local library, like the Newberry Library.
