How can Math tutoring help you?

If your child is struggling in their math classes, then it may be all too easy as a parent to begin fearing that their struggle in the subject area may keep them from achieving their full potential in school and even life. You likely know that high schools require all students to earn at least a few credits in math to graduate, and that scoring well on the mathematics sections of college entrance exams might help your child get into a great college. Don't fear the worst, because whether your child is struggling with basic arithmetic, having trouble in that algebra class, or in the midst of any other math class they are not thriving in, a good tutor may help them finally understand math, and even begin to excel in it. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors may connect you with brilliant math tutors in and around Memphis.

Your child's classroom teacher likely has good teaching skills, but when faced with the challenge of teaching a math course to a large group of students, he or she has very little time to spend helping each individual student. Unfortunately, this often leads to a classroom teacher having to move on to the next lesson in their plans when they know that every single child in the class hasn't fully understood the last lesson. One-on-one math tutoring in Memphis, TN, may help your child in many ways that their classroom teacher may not. Your child's tutor may be dedicated only to their success during each session, and may spend as much time as needed to make sure he or she understands a math lesson before moving onto the next. Your tutor may also use the teaching style that works best for your child; for example, if your child learns best with interactive learning materials, like mathematics-based games or building blocks, then they may be worked into the lessons.

We finished up the student's practice test problems early, and I generated some new ones discussing exponential growth/decay and the logistic function family solving y' = A y (L - y). One initial problem faced by the student was related to interconversion; given y' = a y (L - y) there is a corresponding solution [which I'd write as y = L/2 * (1 + tanh((x - x0)*a*L/2)) for some x0, but they prefer y = L / (1 + C * exp(a*L*x/2)) for some C]. The core idea is that these express the exact same thing -- that if you take a derivative of the one form you get the other form, and if you integrate the one you get the other. So we did a couple of examples until he phrased that in his own words as "flipping back and forth", and seemed to have a better handle on it. I showed him how to speed up test questions involving half-lives or doubling times -- by using 2^x or 0.5^x as the base rather than e. When we ran out of problems I tried to show the student a bit more of the geometric interpretations of calculus and even some of the discrete calculus which shows differentiation to be a subtraction and integration to be an addition, so that the fundamental theorem is just "plus undoes minus; minus undoes plus." I think those will help him as he begins preparing for the stuff after this test, which is reviewing for the AP Calc exam.

The student and I went over material for his upcoming test on systems of equations and inequalities. The test also covers linear programming, so we went over that as well.

The student's teacher decided to give the class another quiz on sequences and series. She received a 40/50 on her previous quiz. We reviewed the 2 problems she got wrong - both were related to arithmetic sequences. One of the few challenges the student has faced in this section is the confusion of the symbols 'a-subscript-n' and 'n-subscript-#'. The former denotes the value for a sequence term located at position n and the latter denotes the number of terms in the sequence. Often she will place the number of terms in the sequence in an equation instead of the VALUE of that term. This is what occurred on one of the quiz problems, and we went over it so that she understood her error. The second error was that she used the formula for geometric mean rather than arithmetic mean to find the missing term. Once we reviewed that problem, she understood the mistake. The student completed a series of problems I compiled from her text for the remainder of the session. These problems covered arithmetic and geometric means, writing an arithmetic series in summation notation, calculating the sum of a converging geometric series, and finding the value of the final term in a series given its sum and first term. She did much better on the mean problems and has a good grasp of all of the formulas. Her challenge remains attention to detail, but on average the number of minor errors are going down. This shows in her improvement in quiz scores this semester versus last. She works very hard during our sessions, and she strives to understand the material even though she finds it challenging.
