Many Las Vegas, NV, students of all ages find math class challenging, but private tutoring is an excellent solution. With a tutor, students have the chance to ask questions, make mistakes, and get personalized lessons in a safe environment. Here are some of the most popular math subjects Learner tutors teach.

Algebra is the foundation of all upper-level math classes and many STEM courses. In algebra 1, students learn the basics: equations, expressions, inequalities, irrational numbers, and quadratics.

Algebra 2 prepares students for trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and physics. This course gives students details on real-world polynomials applications, transformations of functions, mathematical models, logarithms, and exponents.

Calculus is all about limits, derivatives, integrals, and differential equations. These concepts are essential in many college courses and professional fields: aerospace, engineering, physics, medical research, and architecture.

Geometry bridges the gap between algebra 1 and 2 and prepares students for advanced math courses such as trigonometry and calculus. This course covers mathematical proofs and properties of circles, triangles, conic sections, and other shapes.

From political science to computer science to medical research to economics, professional fields use statistical analysis to identify trends and make predictions. Students in this class learn about probability theory and data collection, organization, and research.

Trigonometry is all about angles, graphs, and triangles. Students learn about right and non-right triangles and sine, cosine, and tangent. These functions and their properties are fundamental to calculus, physics, and other upper-level courses.

**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."

Las Vegas public schools adhere to the Nevada Mathematics Standards established by the state's Department of Education. These standards are to give educators a clear understanding of what their students should know, including basic math facts, graphs, numerical relationships, geometry measurements, and mathematical tools (e.g., calculators).

The Nevada Mathematics Standards are divided into 5 sections: Numbers, Number Sense, and Computation; Spatial Relationships and Geometry; Patterns, Functions, and Algebra; Measurement; and Data Analysis. There is a content standard for each section that correlates to each (relevant) grade, from kindergarten through 12th.

For example, kindergarten students should be able to use concrete objects to model essential addition and subtraction. By 4th grade, students should be able to recite multiplication and division facts for numbers from 1 through 12.

When it comes to Mathematical Reasoning, elementary school students should be able to explain how to solve problems by manipulating physical models. Middle school math students must be able to present solutions without physical models. High school math students should be able to construct and defend real-world mathematical conclusions using logical arguments.

In Nevada, students in grades 3 through 8 take the Smarter Balanced assessments in mathematics. Assessment results from 2021 show that only 22.1% of elementary students, 20.5% of middle school students, and 21.3% of high school students were proficient in math.

Like many places in the country, Nevada saw a significant drop in standardized test scores in 2021, which correlated with the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID protocols affected school attendance, and issues with remote learning translated to poor academic performance.

Las Vegas high school students generally take college entrance exams: the ACT and/or the SAT. An estimated 100% of Nevada graduating seniors in 2019 took the ACT, and the average composite score was 17.9, which is lower than the national average of 20.7. The average score on the math portion of the test was 18.0.

Only about 4% of the Nevada graduating class of 2021 took the SAT assessment. The average score on the math portion was 598 (out of 800).
