Have you thought about getting a math tutor for your child in the past, but didn’t know when the right time would be? It’s very common to feel like you might be in over your head… don’t panic. If your child gets a poor grade on an assignment, or if they tell you they just don’t understand what their teacher says, it might be a good time to consider taking your child to a learning center such as Mathnasium to see a math tutor. Keep in mind that it’s always good to start early so they don’t fall too far behind.
Benefits of Sending Your Child to a Math Tutor
What Will You Learn?
If you send your child to a math tutor/learning center, you will learn how to guide your kids through assignments even if they’re doing something too complex for you. And you will also learn how tutors break down the assignments their students do. This will help you give your child as much help as possible at home. And remember… you cannot fix everything, but you can do better than simply telling your child that you do not understand the assignment.
What Will Your Child Learn?
Your child might have to work backwards to learn all the things they need to know to progress in class. Your child might be able to go back and redo work to possibly raise their grades. Putting your child through tutoring will help your child catch up with the class. It will also help give them the confidence they need to test well and get better grades in the future.
How Long Should Your Child See the Tutor?
Your child should see the tutor every week so that he/she has some consistency. You might find that your child is improving their grade so the visits could become less and less frequent. You need to know how your child is doing. Don’t be afraid to ask the tutor/learning center to show you what they’ve done to help your kids. Always ask for progress reports on your child. You may even learn things to say to your kids for encouragement and learn how to prepare for the upcoming years.
