### Why Choose Varsity Tutors for Math Tutoring

### Dedicated Private Math Tutoring Online

If you feel that you or your student could benefit from online math tutoring, we will set you up with an instructor who suits your academic and scheduling needs. Tutoring is more flexible than you may realize, and we can arrange your choice of one-on-one support or group tutoring depending on your needs.

Either way, here are some of the benefits you can expect from private instruction:

- Quick, reliable feedback on all completed assignments
- Individualized support and attention
- The freedom to progress at your pace, whether that's faster or slower than the typical classroom
- Standardized test prep resources developed by experts
- An environment conducive to the learning process

### Proven Math Help For All Levels

If your young student is struggling with the basics of addition and subtraction, their math tutor can use counting cubes to make it easier for them to visualize what's happening. If your student is a little bit older, their instructor can try to incorporate their interests outside of the classroom to make lessons more engaging.

For example, a hockey or basketball player's shooting percentage can be great fodder for problems about decimals and percents. Math tutors can also administer practice problems to help high school students memorize algebraic principles and deepen their understanding of exponential functions. If you're in college, you can work on the foundational skills required for subjects such as calculus and Boolean algebra.

### Improve Grades and Test Scores In Math

Math is one of the most important academic subjects, and federal Common Core standards call for standardized mathematics assessments beginning in Grade 3. If you or your student tense up during important exams, your math tutor can provide practice tests to help you feel more comfortable with a test's content and formatting.

You can also review test-taking tips to boost your self-confidence. For example, showing your work can get a lot of points on some examinations even if your final answer is wrong. Likewise, it is often possible to deduce the correct answer to a multiple-choice question by eliminating incorrect responses. Your instructor can show you how to do so if you like.

### How much does a math tutor cost?

The price of online math tutoring depends on several factors, including the material to be reviewed and how often sessions take place. For example, a student who regularly meets their instructor on Wednesday nights will pay a different rate than a student who wants to cram for an exam at the last minute.

If you're looking to save money, you can explore group tutoring options or enroll in a Varsity Tutors math class as well. Reach out to one of our amicable Educational Directors if you have any questions regarding the options available to you.

### How does online math tutoring work?

You will meet your expert math tutor on our Live Learning Platform: a virtual classroom equipped with a myriad of powerful features to improve your study experience. Our platform includes integrated practice problems and a virtual whiteboard that can make it feel like you're in the same room as your instructor.

Video chat functionality also allows you to see and hear your instructor, so any questions asked about multiplication tables or trigonometry can be addressed in a timely fashion. Best of all, our platform records every session so you can build up a lesson library over time.

### Are math tutors worth it?

Working with a private tutor can offer many benefits, including more confidence in the classroom, improved study skills, and even a passion for numbers that didn't exist before. Research also suggests that formal mathematics tutoring can improve test scores by 4-6 percent.

Math tutors help students focus on working through areas they're having difficulty with by providing one-on-one attention. If you're trying to help your child find the right person and searched for "math tutor near me," it's likely you want to help encourage their ability to succeed in school but might not know where to get started. Rather than continue the search for "math tutors near me" you can help your child get set up with a private tutor of their own. Learn more about how these professionals can create a helpful learning plan that encourages your child to grow as a student.

## Why work with a math tutor?

When you get your child started with math tutoring, you can help them find someone who will start the process of teaching basic math techniques and can help improve their test-taking skills. Math tutors can help create a useful environment for studying and model these behaviors for your child so they know what to do when it's time to study on their own. This can help your child learn about how to manage their time and what to do when it comes to learning on their own.

See a list of online math tutorsChoosing to work with private math tutors means it is possible to create a flexible schedule for your child. This allows the tutor to work around your child's needs, such as studying when your child is most alert, or around activities, they are involved in. This helps your child find the right math tutor for their needs without sacrificing their time or anything else that is important to them.

Math is one of the most important subjects that your child will learn in school. With a need for math in almost every profession and even in one's daily life, it is important to see why math is necessary. Math often starts out easy but can progress in levels of difficulty as your child goes through school. Getting hung up in one of these areas makes it difficult to continue down the path of learning. Everything from understanding simple multiplication and addition to multiplying of fractions and moving on to geometry can pose a problem when the student doesn't have a solid grasp of what they're learning.

In all, tutoring is an excellent supplement to your student's classroom education. You can get them started with math tutors by reaching out to us today. You can also keep reading to get more information on how math tutors can help your student pursue their academic goals.

An Overview of Math

Math is one of the core subjects that students will learn throughout their entire academic career. Math instruction begins at the very beginning of a student's education and progresses in difficulty as the student moves from grade to grade. Math can be a challenging topic for some students. One of the reasons for this is that math instruction builds upon itself from school year to school year. For example, if your student didn't quite understand all of their lessons on basic math topics like addition and subtraction, then they will have a harder time advancing into working with multiplication and division.

As students get closer to finishing their education, they'll move into advanced math topics like algebra, geometry, and calculus. These subjects require a strong understanding of a number of math topics that students would've learned earlier in their education. For example, if your student had a hard time with lessons in pre-algebra, then they may struggle to understand algebra at a high level.

Working with a private math tutor is a great way for your child to fill in any educational gaps they may have from earlier on in their math education. Your child's instructor can assess where they're at with their understanding of math and compare that to where educational standards say they should be. Then, they can work with them to identify the roots of their issues and address them through a series of customized lessons. This type of mathematical assistance is available for students of all grade levels.

For example, students in elementary school can get help with basic math concepts like addition and subtraction. Or, if your student is a little older, a math tutor can help them with more challenging concepts like algebra and geometry. Whatever grade your student is in, their instructor can spend time with them helping them to overcome their difficulties in the field of math. This can help them raise their understanding of the subject area to meet the Common Core Standards for their grade level.

As an example, keep reading for a look at the Common Core Standards for 4th-grade students in the United States. Students at this grade level should know things like the four basic math operations and factors and multiples. They should also know how to perform multi-digit arithmetic and how to solve problems that include decimals and fractions. Students at this grade level should also have an introductory understanding of core principles in geometry. This includes things like lines, angles, and the properties of shapes. If you have a student in or near the 4th grade who doesn't understand all of these math topics, then signing them up for math tutoring could be a good option to help them make academic improvements.

Math and Testing

As one of the core academic subjects, math is something that is often tested. Your student will take math exams in their classes and also when taking standardized exams. If your student is a bit older, then they may be getting ready to take a college admissions test like the SAT or the ACT. These exams also cover a number of math topics. Performing well on the ACT or the ACT is important because doing so can help your student get into the college of their choice. A good score on one of these exams can also help them earn more scholarship offers. However, in order to do well on one of these exams, your student will need to have a solid understanding of core math topics.

For example, the PSAT is an exam that many high school students take as a means of preparing for the SAT. Accordingly, the PSAT covers many of the math topics that students will need to know when taking the SAT. This is a list that includes things like polynomial and nonlinear expressions, trigonometric ratios, the Pythagorean theorem, variables and constants in expressions for linear functions, linear equations, and much more.

If your student is preparing for one of these exams or for a classroom math test, then math tutors can help them get ready. Their math tutoring sessions can focus on the specific topics that they need to know for their upcoming exam. Your student can spend as much or as little time as they need to on each topic. This creates an efficient learning experience that may help your student feel prepared for their exam faster than would be possible if they were studying alone for it.

Additionally, your student's instructor can spend some time helping them to develop their general test-taking skills. For instance, your student's educator can show them what an ideal test preparation process looks like so that they know what to replicate when preparing for exams in the future. They can also show them things like how to manage their time more effectively while taking tests with restrictive time limits. If your student has experienced test anxiety in the past, then their tutor can even show them some relaxation techniques that they can use to overcome that anxiety in the future. These are skills that can help your student with their upcoming math exam as well as with exams that they take in the future.

How Does Math Tutoring Work?

When you sign up to work with a private math tutor, we'll start by connecting you with an experienced educator who can start working with your student quickly. We'll make every effort to connect you with someone who is able to work around both your and your student's schedules. This makes it easy to get your child the help that they need with their math studies without having to make too many sacrifices from the other important parts of your lives.

After your student is connected with their instructor, they can start meeting with them for one-on-one study sessions. This intimate academic environment enables your child's tutor to set them up with a customized lesson plan that is based entirely on their needs. They'll be able to work through each math topic that they're struggling with under the guidance of an expert. Your student can stop to get extra guidance whenever they need it and can breeze through the topics that they already understand at a high level.

For instance, if your student is preparing to take the SAT, then they may only need help with some of the math topics that are covered on the exam. Private instruction is unique from other test preparation options because it provides the opportunity to focus on the specific math topics that are tested on the SAT that your student still needs help learning. Normal test preparation classes would ask your student to sit through a series of lectures on the topics that they already understand before they can even get to the topics that they really want help with. This is just one of the reasons why private math tutoring can be such a great addition to your student's education.

In all, private math instruction is a unique learning experience that can help your child make the academic growth that they've been working towards in a more efficient way. This type of personalized instruction is hard to find through other academic avenues like the traditional classroom setting. That's because even the best teachers simply don't have enough time to offer each of their students personalized assistance to the same level that a tutor is capable of.
