How Math Tutors Strengthen Learning Skills

math-tutor-strengthen-skills

A strong mathematical foundation can help your child understand important concepts in school and gain confidence outside of it. Unfortunately, only slightly more than 25% of American children had proficient levels in mathematics. We know that personalized tutoring plans can close the gap and make kids feel confident in their abilities. That’s why Swan Learning Center offers a warm, compassionate environment to increase your child’s math computation skills, comprehension of math concepts and applications, and overall performance in class.

Tutors Engage Your Child One-On-One

In an ideal world, we could teach our children everything they needed to know, and their teachers could keep pace with their individual learning experience. Unfortunately, even if you have all of the time, patience, and knowledge in the world, your child sees you as a parent. You’re not their teacher, and they may have trouble accepting you in both roles. Teachers, on the other hand, are extremely limited in their time and need to keep pace with the class.

A math tutor is neither a teacher nor a parent. They’re someone who can engage your child, work through difficult concepts at their pace, and motivate them to succeed. All three individuals provide a necessary role that will help your child excel and be the best student they can be.

Tutors Build Confidence

Without a doubt, the most rewarding benefit of math tutoring is seeing your child conquer concepts they had previously struggled with. The pressure to succeed in school can be overwhelming, and even one bad test score can lower confidence and make your child question their abilities. The personalized instruction at Swan Learning Center is designed to build understanding in a compassionate environment. As confidence grows, skill gaps decrease. We continue to build upon your child’s confidence, aiming toward advanced concepts and higher grades.

Tutors Raise Test Scores

Speaking of grades, we know just how important they can be to both educational institutions and your child’s confidence. A low test score usually indicates that a child isn’t motivated to study or they lack an understanding of important concepts. Our math tutors tackle both issues by building mathematical fluency through a solid foundation of the basics in a one-on-one setting.  Our personalized instruction starts building a strong understanding of critical concepts and sets its sights toward higher levels. We want to boost your child’s level of understanding, not just grades.

At the high school level, we focus on mastering Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Calculus. We know just how critical high school exit exams and standardized college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT are. That’s why we customize our programs in conjunction with your student’s curriculum to boost your teenager toward success at an advanced level.

Tutors Can Help During Summer Break and Transition Periods

As much as we love summer vacation, it takes a toll on your child’s math skills. A tutor can keep difficult concepts at the forefront of your child’s mind while they enjoy their break. When school starts back up, they’ll be ahead of the curriculum.

A tutor can also ease a move to a new school. It’s easy to get lost in the chaos that is moving to a new town. A tutor can help with concepts that their old school may not have addressed and maintain focus during a stressful time.
