How can a tutor assist you in conquering Elementary Math?

Elementary math revolves around five basic building blocks: numbers, place value system, whole number operations, fractions and decimals, and problem solving. Everything about elementary mathematics is precise, clear-cut, and without any hidden rules. Rational thinking is the glue that holds the arithmetic concepts together. If your child is experiencing difficulty comprehending any of these building blocks or concepts, you might want to work with a professional tutor. Varsity Tutors will match you with the best elementary math tutor in Suffolk, VA, who might help your child meet his or her academic and test score goals.

Let us find you a tutor in Suffolk who will strive to ensure your child understands elementary math by keeping him or her actively engaged in the educational process. It is important to find a tutor that is suited to your child's personality so they work well together. You want the tutor to know how to create a study plan that caters specifically to your child's needs and keeps him or her excited to continue learning. Addition, subtraction, decimals, fractions, and a wide variety of math skills can seem boring to some students.

Doing well academically in elementary school is one of the main building blocks to a long and successful career as a student. A professional tutor is able to work with your child to identify problem areas in the subject, and find the right study solution to help him or her improve scores on homework assignments, quizzes, tests, and the overall quarterly or semester grade. The tutor could teach your child tips on how to study for tests and stay focused on test days. Homework assignments are a big part of effectively learning mathematics concepts. Your child's tutor can work with him or her to strive to ensure that the day's lesson is fully comprehended so that new information can be retained the next day. Getting behind on understanding course work such as patterns, data analysis, plane figures, or word problems can keep your child from excelling in class.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"The student worked on using all of her spelling words in sentences. She did a great job using adjectives in her writing. We then practiced her multiplication facts with a math game called "Who Has." She did great figuring out the facts she doesn't have memorized."

★★★★★

"The student had an awesome attitude on Monday! He had great focus and a lot of energy. He is responding well to the positive reinforcement. He is quick to say, "I don't know?" when he doesn't know the answer right away. I would overturn that objection by saying, "No way dude, you totally know! Let's figure it out together. You're so smart, and I know you can do this!" When he doesn't know the answer--and to keep him from haphazard guessing--we start with what he knows for sure. For example, if the math problem is 9x6, and he doesn't know right away that it's 54, we start with 9x2 (numbers he is certain of) and work from there. I hope this will encourage him to recognize that it's okay to not know right away, but we have to be able to figure out how to find the answer. Hopefully this is slowly building his confidence and puts a stop to the "I don't know," because he does know, he just needs to practice! We were able to complete a lot more than in the weeks prior!"

★★★★★

"We worked on the student's math assignments this session. She was beginning to do borrowing across zeros. We had touched on this topic prior, and she was very familiar with the concepts. She did a great job of estimating and finding the differences with the borrowing technique. In addition, we talked about writing a short story and will be working on that next session."

★★★★★

"We covered test prep review questions that contained two-by-two-digit multiplication and one-/ two-by-three division problems. The student had a good understanding of the concepts covered. I noticed last session that he was struggling with his times tables so we set aside time at the end of the session to do times tables drills. He did increasingly better with each round of times tables. I will continue to work on times tables in future sessions to make sure he has a solid foundation of this concept, as he needs it as he continues in math."

★★★★★

"The student and I worked on helping her know her multiplication facts automatically. To do this, we made flashcards for each multiplication fact and then I had her solve for the answer of each by using her arrays. This allowed her to understand not only what the answer is, but how we get the answer. She and I also practiced a few division problems. She just started long division at school so she practiced a few of the strategies that her teacher has been working on with them."

★★★★★

"In this session, we discussed the relationship between multiplication and division. The student understands the concept but will continue to work on it with practice problems so that she will be more confident. Additionally, we reviewed multiplication story problems. This area needs further discussion, and I would like her to focus on her multiplication tables moving forward. This will make learning division much easier for her. Finally, we discussed inverse operations (which she has mastered) and identifying number sentences, checking answers. "
