If your child or teenager has been receiving low grades in math or been struggling, scheduling them to work with one of the best math tutors NYC offers can help. Our teachers go much farther than helping with homework assignments – they have the knowledge and skills to reteach any math concepts your child may have missed in class. Mathematics is an intimidating subject for some people, and once difficulties occur, they lead to anxiety and blocks to future learning. The most effective tutoring in math skills can turn things around for your child and instill a new sense of confidence and momentum.

# Math Tutors for All Grade Levels Pre-K-12

At Teachers Who Tutor, we provide an exceptional math tutoring service for students in grades Pre-K through 12. Our math tutors are experienced math teachers with the knowledge and teaching skills to demystify mathematics for your child or teen. Everyone on our team holds a Master’s degree and teaches at a respected independent, charter, or public school in NYC. The students we work with attend elementary, middle, or high school. So, if you’ve been searching for math tutors near me, you’re in the right place, and we’re ready to assist. We provide excellent math learning support to improve understanding and progress.

### Story Problems in Math | How to Get Them Right

- Re-read the problem, focusing on what information is known and what is needed. If you have difficulty keeping track of numerous moving parts, it’s often helpful to read the problem twice. Your first reading should help you get the gist of the problem and the second reading, more slowly, is about determining the information that is known and what is needed.
- Make a list. Even when you have a sense of how to approach the problem, you might still forget a final step. For example, jot down a brief list of ordered steps to ensure that you complete each one. If you’re tackling a problem involving order of operations, you can make a visual list of the steps or make up something to help yourself remember. An example is PEMDAS (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally): Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction.
- Do a series of examples on your own. There’s a big difference between being walked through the steps of a problem and sitting alone and doing the work.

### Pre-K Through 3rd Grade Math

Our math teachers use the number line and manipulatives to introduce the concepts of number sense, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, calendars, and measurement. The math learning support we provide is in conjunction with our students’ schools to ensure that sessions are aligned with the goals and pedagogy of each course. We know how difficult math can be without the foundations in place, so we work from an inside-out model of making sure the basics are there before moving onto the problem of the day.

### 4th Through 6th Grade Math

Have your child work one-on-one with an experienced math teacher to review and improve their understanding of mathematics fundamentals — addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division – before moving on to more challenging work in applying these concepts to fractions and decimals. We explain to students how to perform the algorithm and why, for example, dividing fractions requires flipping the second one and then multiplying. When math concepts and operations are better understood, success at solving problems will improve.

### Pre-Algebra and Algebra

First, we tutor students in the fundamentals of constants and variables. We then apply them to various types of problems, including work problems; distance, rate, and time; absolute value; inequalities; factors and multiples; prime numbers; prime factorization; least common multiples; greatest common factors; and exponents, radicals, and scientific notation. With these skills, students are ready to approach multi-variable equations and beginning thinking about basic cartesian or coordinate plane algebra-based geometry, which leads to systems of equations and polynomials.

### Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus

Math classes become more complex in high school, combining algebra, statistics, and geometry as students build up to pre-calc and calculus. At Teachers Who Tutor, our math learning support makes sure the fundamentals are in place before moving on to more complex topics. We have experts in both proof and non-proof-cased geometry. Additionally, we pride ourselves in our ability to slow down and address each step of precalculus,including series, composite fractions, vectors, conic sections, complex numbers, and matrices – our teaching experience makes all the difference.

### Word Problems in Math

The proper learning support can turn things around for students who dislike math word problems. But there’s no reason to let them be intimidating. Our highly qualified math tutors have the skills to help kids understand these require the additional step of translating the words into numbers. Even for some students with excellent reading comprehension, looking at word problems can feel overwhelming, like many words swimming around the page with little meaning. Re-reading the problem is often the key to better processing the information.

### Assessments and Tests

Our math tutors teach study skills to middle and high schoolers who do poorly on tests. There is no doubt exams can be intimidating, but with a more organized approach to test prep, they can be much less daunting. The key is actively engaging with the material for practice and to improve computational and problem-solving speed and accuracy. Anyone who only flips through their class notes and thinks they’re all set will probably do poorly. The best method for doing well involves practicing effective preparation techniques.

### Our Math Tutoring Includes Study Skills

Nothing replaces a learning by doing approach, and our math tutoring brings it to the forefront. We emphasize with students that redoing problems is the best way to study. It’s common for teachers to assign practice problems in the days before a test, while at other times, students can review material with a textbook’s chapter test or from class notes. It’s crucial to do the problems with a pencil and paper, rather than passively reading over problems from the week before. Students need to redo sample math problems from class, homework assignments, or a textbook to study effectively. It’s often overlooked and a skill that we teach every student who we tutor.

If your child or teen is doing poorly in math or feels intimidated by it, let us provide needed learning support that helps bring improvements. Because we are thorough and organized in our approach, our tutoring sessions are organized and goal-oriented. Our mathematics tutoring at all levels goes far beyond help with homework and is focused entirely on making your child into a better math student with the ability to succeed.
