Quantitative Reasoning Tutoring FAQ

From grade school and high school to college and the workplace, strong quantitative reasoning skills are necessary for success. Even if you plan on pursuing a major or a career that appears to have little to do with overt mathematics, the ability to interpret quantitative data shows up in numerous ways in daily life. Websites and newspapers present information in the forms of graphs, tables, or charts. Working out the numbers and sticking to a personal budget requires strong basic math skills, and if you're to understand the weather report, you need to be able to work with percentages and different temperature scales. Quantitative skills are also tested on numerous standardized tests including, but not limited to, the ACT, the SAT, the GRE, the MCAT, and the GMAT. Beyond standardized evaluation, the math and science classes that help students develop these skills also form large parts of traditional curricula. Quantitative reasoning tutoring, therefore, can help you in school and in many facets of life.

Whether you need help brushing up on your quantitative reasoning skills in preparation for a specific test, in order to understand material being presented in one of your classes, or to prepare for a specific career, a quantitative reasoning tutor can help you work toward achieving your particular goals. They understand the ways in which you are looking to apply your quantitative reasoning knowledge are unique, so your instructor can make your tutoring equally unique by adapting it to meet your particular needs. Just about anyone can learn these skills. It just takes a little more effort for some than others, and the help of a personal instructor who can explain it in the way you understand, rather than relying on generalizations to get through a classroom lesson. Your tutor has time devoted just to help you personally understand the fundamental concepts in question.

Varsity Tutors begins by helping you to connect with an independent quantitative reasoning tutor whose skill set, experience, and knowledge base best equip them to help you with your specific goals. Your tutor can then design a custom-tailored learning plan aimed at helping you bolster your quantitative reasoning knowledge in the areas you find most difficult, while avoiding unnecessary review of concepts that you already understand. They will also test your knowledge and skills as you go with assignments, quizzes, and homework, to measure your progress and fine tune the lessons along the way. No study group or impersonal online resource offers help so adapted to your particular needs, along with the personal attention of a subject expert.

Each of your quantitative reasoning tutoring sessions is one-on-one, so you can have your tutor's full attention during each of your sessions, work at your own pace, and receive feedback and answers to questions that come up as needed. Your instructor will also meet wherever is most convenient, at a library, coffee shop, or in your own home, and they will even hold sessions online when that is possible. They can be as flexible as needed to adjust to your changing schedule, so school, work, and other activities do not have to get in the way.

While quantitative reasoning skills are crucial for being prepared for college and for the workplace, students struggle with different aspects of this broad field in different ways. No matter what aspect of the field you find challenging, Varsity Tutors can help you to connect with a quantitative reasoning tutor to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to excel.

We did some good work on quite a few word problems, as well as fractions and time. The biggest issue has been getting the student to figure out what the word problem is asking him to solve for. With some coaching he is able to see how to arrive at the answers, so it will just take some practice.

Today the student and I worked on equivalent fractions, long division, place value, rounding, word problems, and conversions. This session went well but I am curious to see what is remembered between now and next Monday because that is a lot of time to remember. We still have a lot to do on word problems and especially on ones having to do with elapsed time. I can absolutely see the progress that she has made and am happy about this. I am hoping that confidence is also growing.

The student and I began reviewing for her Math Placement Test. We reviewed rounding numbers, multiplying negative numbers with other negative numbers or positive numbers. We also reviewed order of operation and exponents, taking both positive and negative numbers to the different powers.

During our session, the student and I worked on long division (ex. 7630/46). The student took awhile to get started and needed some support. As she was working on the problem, I was also doing the same. the student will need to master her multiplication facts so that when she does division problems, she will be able to do them quicker. She is making simple errors (forgetting to bring the next number down, incorrect subtraction, etc.). Her homework for next week is to practice more division facts on page 65 in her journal.

Focused on long division. Learned how to divide 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers and how to express the remainder as a fraction. Started two-digit multiplication and completed a 1 minute multiplication drill in which the student did very well.

Today I worked with two students. Student 1 and I worked mainly on his summer workbook, which has a variety of subjects on each page. I think this worked well for him. Student 2 and I worked on his summer workbook and also his current reading assignment. His penmanship has gotten a little worse since the last time we worked together and will be something I work on with him in the future.
