I know how vital learning math is in elementary school—it forms the foundation for all your child’s future math studies. To make it understandable, I take an orderly, logical approach to teaching it to your child.
I begin with computation and problem solving using whole numbers, and then move on to computation and problem solving with rational numbers—fractions, decimals, percents, and negative numbers. (Interesting fact: In math, the word “rational” comes from the mathematical term “ratio.” It has nothing to do with being reasonable.)
This foundation I give them is essential for pre-algebra and algebra, which they will encounter in middle school.
Elementary school students work one to onewith me in a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written exercises. These do more than just meet state math standards, they surpass the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards.
Beyond teaching students all-important math concepts and skills, Myprogram helps them build number sense by showing them just how numbers work. As it progresses, students get more and more comfortable with numbers. I call this numerical fluency—the ability for elementary school kids to effortlessly recall addition and subtraction facts—a valuable asset when they face upcoming challenges in math.
I create a custom program designed to help closeeducational gaps they may have and make it easier for them to jump ahead when they’re ready for advanced math challenges.
Additionally, I help children understand their school homework as part of each session, as well as help them prepare for school tests, standardized tests, and various school entrance exams.
