Students can start to fall behind in math as early as elementary school. In many cases, the problem usually comes down to the traditional classroom environment, which is full of distractions and doesn't offer students the chance to ask questions or work at their own pace. With Learner, your child can get one-on-one instruction in key math subjects.

This subject covers all the basics of algebra: expressions, inequalities, systems of equations, unit conversion, and quadratic functions. These topics are the foundation of all upper-level math classes and have countless real-world applications.

Expands on the topics from algebra 1 and adds exponents, logarithms, polynomials, complex numbers, and radicals. This course prepares students for trigonometry and pre-calculus.

Discusses theory and problem-solving methods for integrals, differential equations, derivatives, and limits. Calculus principles have applications in physics, engineering, economics, computer science, and the aerospace industry.

Usually taken between algebra 1 and 2, geometry covers the properties of two-dimensional shapes (e.g., triangles) and three-dimensional shapes (e.g., spheres) along with mathematical proofs. These concepts appear again in upper-level math and science classes and have applications in construction, architecture, engineering, and robotics.

Focuses on data collection, organization, and analysis, especially in terms of probability theory. Students use graphs and other display methods to view data and make predictions, skills necessary for economics, meteorology, computer science, sales, and political science.

Focuses on trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, and tangent) along with right and non-right triangles. Students learn to graph, manipulate, and use these functions to model data and prepare for upper-level math courses such as calculus.

**Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a ****full ride to Duke University.**

“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”

"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."

"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."

One-on-one instruction is the key to success for many students. With Learner, your child has the chance to ask questions, get different explanations of complicated topics, and practice their problem-solving techniques with an expert. Most students see better test scores and homework grades in a few weeks.

Learner tutors don't just repeat textbook examples and explanations. They make math fun to help students really engage with the material. This level of knowledge gives students more confidence in their abilities, improving academic performance in all classes.

The state of New York adopted the Common Core Standards for Mathematics in January of 2011. In 2015, the state initiated a review of the standards with the goal of revising them as necessary. The result was the New York State Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards, adopted in 2017. These standards include revisions, clarifications, and additions to the original Common Core standards.

The overall goals of the state's current mathematics standards are coherence, focus, and rigor. The idea is to ensure that students at each grade level spend their time and energy on the essential math topics, gaining a deep understanding of the theory and proficiency in solving related problems. Ideally, students should be ready for the next math level by the end of the current math level they are studying.

Under the current plan, elementary and middle school students study essential math basics, such as functions, equations, and arithmetic. They start learning about algebraic thinking to prepare for high school, where they take two algebra courses and a geometry class.

Like most cities across the US, Brooklyn saw a sharp drop in test scores correlating with the COVID-19 pandemic. School closures and challenges with remote learning delayed progress for many students, as reflected in the test scores of recent years. As a result of the pandemic, New York made the 2020-2021 academic year assessment exams optional. Only 20.5% of students in 3rd through 8th grades tool the math assessment in 2021. The test results show that only 51.5% of test-takers were proficient in math.

In New York public high schools, all students in 11th grade take the SAT exam. The most recent test scores available are those from 2019. In that year, only 30.5% of students scored high enough to meet the "college-ready" cut in the math portion of the exam. Although some colleges are moving toward a test-optional admissions policy that doesn't require applicants to submit SAT or ACT scores, many schools, especially elite universities, consider test scores when evaluating applications.

Many math tutors are available to students who live in Brooklyn, NY, but not all of them offer the same level of expertise. A college student who tutors part-time may be a good option for an elementary school student who needs a little help to catch up, but middle school and high school math students often need to work with an expert.

When you're choosing a tutor for your child, look for someone knowledgeable about education planning and math. A good tutor makes complex math concepts accessible through exciting and straightforward explanations.
