Math topics build upon one another. Sometimes, when a student fails to grasp a concept, they can quickly fall behind. That’s why it’s so beneficial to seek out a tutor as soon as you begin struggling—so you can build on those foundational concepts together and get right back on track.

Covering equation systems, quadratics, inequalities, graphs, and exponents, algebra 1 teaches the basics of algebraic thinking—a foundational subject for upper-level math classes.

This subject adds to algebra 1 concepts such as logarithms, polynomials, complex numbers, and radicals, preparing students for trigonometry and pre-calculus.

Calculus includes concepts like using integrals, derivatives, differential equations, and limits. These principles are instrumental in several industries, such as economics, engineering, physics, and aerospace.

This math subject teaches the properties of two- and three-dimensional shapes, as well as mathematical proofs.

Teaching students how to collect, organize, and analyze data to make predictions, statistics has significant applications in economics, political science, meteorology, and marketing.

With a focus on trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, and tangent) as well as properties of triangles, this subject prepares students for advanced math like 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."

For many Detroit students, one-on-one tutoring can be key to academic progress. Your Learner math tutor will tailor their teaching to each individual’s learning style. And after each session, you’ll get tutor feedback on your child’s current strengths and weaknesses so you can see their progress.

Without the distractions a classroom can sometimes offer, your one-on-one tutor can give your child full attention and build their math confidence.

When you work with Learner, you’ll learn foundational math skills that apply to your future career and life. Our tutors know math isn’t just about memorizing answers – it’s about really internalizing problem-solving processes. So when it’s time for your next math class or big college entrance exam, you’ll be ready.

In 2010, the state of Michigan began to implement the Common Core State Standards, aligning them with its curricula. The goal of these Common Core State Standards is not to tell teachers what or how to teach, as that is a state decision. Rather, the goal of the CCSS is to clearly define what students need to know—expectations for what they need to master in each level of math to be ready for the next level.

But each state gets to decide how to implement that through curriculum development. And for Michigan’s State Board of Education, that also meant adopting their Michigan K-12 Standards for Mathematics in 2010. These were inspired by the renewal of the 2001 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), often referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

These standards include Grade Level Content Expectations (GLCE) and High School Content Expectations (HSCE) to give educators a reference point to guide their teaching. With a focus on encouraging rigor, relevance, and relationship in the math classroom, the state’s academic K-12 standards help guide curriculum development and test creation. Michigan continues to revise these standards as needed, collaborating with other states to refine them.

According to Bridge Michigan, 55% of Detroit’s children live in poverty, which is correlated with lower test scores in school. Test scores for Detroit students consistently rank last among other large cities throughout the country. They also fall below the average scores for the overall state of Michigan. These scores reveal that very few students have been proficient in math.

However, in 2019, a ray of hope shed light on the situation. When a new superintendent took over the Detroit Public Schools Community District in 2017, the district began implementing intense educational reforms. Two years later, students in the district improved their average math and reading test scores across all grades. Though those scores still fell below the state averages, the improvements were a sure sign that the district was moving in the right direction.

Unfortunately, beginning in 2020, these scores have begun to drop again—as they have in many regions throughout the country—due to the school closures and remote learning associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Choosing to find a math tutor online instead of locally opens up your options. Rather than having to search for a math expert that happens to be in your area, you can have your pick of the best math tutors in the country. Not to mention the flexibility that comes with remote learning.

When finding a tutor for your child, consider their experience, areas of expertise, and teaching style to help you find the right fit. Thankfully, your first Learner tutoring session is commitment-free, giving you the opportunity to assess whether the tutor is a good match for your student. If it doesn’t work out - you get your money back for the session.
