How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you prepare for Competition Math?
Math competitions can be very rewarding experiences. Not only is there the possibility of prizes and honors just for pursuing your interest in math, a high score in a math competition can look great on a college application, help you get a scholarship, and even help you get a job. However, math competitions are inherently challenging. Because math competitions are meant to help you identify your interests and talents, as well as inspire you to learn more about math on your own, they often cover material that’s not included in the regular textbook for your grade. Additionally, each math competition is different, with its own approach and set of priorities, so a ‘general review’ of math often isn’t the best way to prepare.
A Competition Math tutor from Varsity Tutors can help you focus your contest preparation efforts so that you have a better chance of achieving a high score, while also enjoying the competition preparation process. Whether you’re preparing for a local math contest or a national competition (such as the AMC), a Varsity Tutors Competition Math tutor can serve as a knowledgeable guide through the entire preparation process--answering your questions, directing you to the best resources, and keeping track of your progress along the way. Your personalized tutoring will begin with an analysis of the test itself and continue with an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses in each relevant area. With the help of your tutor, you’ll develop a study program which covers all the areas of the test, addresses each of your trouble areas, and makes you aware of special test-taking strategies for each section of the test. In the end, tutoring with a Varsity Tutors Competition Math tutor will not only make you more likely to achieve a better score in the competition, it will also eliminate wasted time, reduce your stress, and possibly even increase your enjoyment of math.

1) Write "Area of a triangle= .5bh" at the top of your test.
2) Check your easy math (to guard against silly mistakes like 4x5=21).
3) Make sure your answer makes sense. (Such as, you can't buy 4.2 pickles. Or, if you're converting meters to kilometers, your answer has to be smaller than the number you started with.)
4) Do the whole test over again on a new sheet of paper. And again. And again."
