Math is a subject that introduces new concepts based on the foundation of what students have already studied. Elementary School Math provides the baseline that all subsequent math courses build upon, making it an essential subject for students to master. If your child may be falling behind their peers in mathematics, Varsity Tutors can set you up with an experienced Elementary School Math tutor who can help them work toward their academic goals.
Here are some of the most important skills that Elementary School Mathematics tutoring can help students learn:
- Word Problems
- Counting Money
- Reading Clocks/Calendars
The best way to teach these concepts depends on your child's learning style. If they are a visual learner, a number line and/or counting cubes may prove to be helpful visual aids to illustrate what a math problem is asking them to do. Alternatively, an auditory learner may benefit more from listening to the Schoolhouse Rock songs about counting by threes and fives. While a classroom teacher is often unable to cater instruction to an individual student's needs like this, elementary school tutoring sessions may be adapted specifically to your child.
