If you’re currently investigating options for math tutoring for your child, you’re not alone; many students who struggle with math need help and support beyond what is available in the classroom.
Many 8th grade students find math frustrating, confusing, or just plain hard. If your child is one of the many students who struggle to keep up with the pace of the math curriculum, mastering new material can seem like an impossible task. And since new concepts introduced in math build upon previously mastered material, falling behind even just a little bit early on can lead to recurring issues down the road.
Perhaps this explains why qualified, dynamic, caring math tutors are some of the most sought after education professionals when it comes to beyond-the-classroom support. A private tutor creates a safe space in which your child can learn new math concepts at his or her own pace. Math tutoring allows your child to explore concepts, to ask questions, and to receive positive reinforcement. Ultimately, working with an expert tutor enables your child to gain not only mastery of math but also confidence, self-respect, and a sense of personal accomplishment as his or her grades improve.
Our 8th grade math tutoring focuses on two key areas. First, we look to fill any gaps so your child has a strong foundation on which to build. Second, we work to help your child learn and master the new concepts that arise each week. The goal is to ensure that your child has mastered the material, and is prepared for important tests, quizzes, and other assignments.
If your child could benefit from working with an experienced math tutor, I invite you to keep reading below to learn more about our math tutoring programs and how they can help your child succeed.
CEO & Co-Founder
In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your math tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.
Our focus is your child's schoolwork, and a key responsibility of our tutors is to help your child prepare for and succeed on important tests and quizzes. This involves reviewing homework, discussing concepts, and completing practice problems.
Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade in math class, but equally important, our math tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent math student.
Our experienced math tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.
They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.
Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.
To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:
Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.
Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.
Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a report card grade worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is the math grade on his or her report card, and that is how we measure our success with clients.
Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that accompany a strong report card.
Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our math tutoring.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."
"I just wanted to share the happy news with you. [Our daughter] got a 30 on her ACT. We could all not be any happier. I knew from the minute she started working with you she was going to improve. Whatever you did was magic and just what she needed."
"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."
"Our tutor was wonderful. He was very flexible in scheduling, he was calm and encouraging to our son. And, he really had great advice on the whole process. He is a credit to your organization."
