At Learner, we offer math tutoring to Los Angeles students of all ages, from elementary school to college. Our private tutors have also worked with nontraditional adult students and high schoolers preparing for the SAT and ACT. Here are some of the most popular math subjects we offer.

This course usually covers the basic foundations of algebraic thinking: equations, sequences, functions, graphs, exponents, and quadratics. It prepares students to solve real-world problems and succeed in upper-level math and science classes.

Covering more advanced topics, algebra 2 includes complex numbers, polynomials, transformations of functions, logarithms, and mathematical modeling. It is the foundation of pre-calculus, trigonometry, and college algebra.

Engineering, physics, economics, medicine, aerospace, and countless other fields rely on calculus concepts. This overview course usually covers continuity, limits, integrals, derivatives, and their applications.

Most students take geometry after algebra 1 and before algebra 2, but it also prepares students for engineering, surveying, architecture, and computer science courses. This course features mathematical proofs and teaches students to analyze the properties of shapes: circles, conic sections, triangles, and three-dimensional solids.

Statistical analysis applies to numerous industries, from finance and marketing to physics and engineering. This course introduces probability theory and how to use it to analyze data, identify trends, and make predictions.

Trigonometry is essential for calculus, physics, engineering, and many other advanced classes. Important topics include the main trigonometric functions, sine, cosine, tangent, the unit circle, and properties of triangles.

**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."

Most Learner students see improvements in their self-confidence, homework, and quiz grades within a few weeks. But these aren’t the only progress markers. Your child’s tutor will give detailed feedback after every session so you and your child can see where they’re improving and which areas still need work.

Many Los Angeles classrooms are crowded and full of distractions, making it difficult for students to ask questions or pay attention to examples. At Learner, your student will meet with their tutor in our virtual classroom, which is designed to be a safe and distraction-free learning environment.

A good understanding of math isn’t just essential to graduating high school or getting a good standardized test score. Math concepts show up in everyday life and have applications in every industry. Our tutors offer relatable examples and word problems to help students understand the importance of key math concepts.

California adopted the Common Core Standards for Mathematics in 2010, and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has spent several years implementing those standards. The school district’s Mathematics Branch manages the math instructional programs, and one of its goals is to ensure coherent math instruction throughout the district. Additionally, the LAUSD hopes to provide instruction and support for teachers so that every student becomes proficient in algebra and more advanced math courses.

K-5 students in Los Angeles learn math topics that include arithmetic, mental math strategies, number sense, computational fluency, fractions, and problem-solving techniques. Middle school students focus on ratios, multi-digit arithmetic, basic geometry, algebraic equations, and word problems.

High school students in Los Angeles take algebra 1, geometry, and algebra 2. They may also take honors advanced mathematics and a financial algebra course. The high school math curriculum also covers the basics of statistics and probability, and pre-calculus.

According to data from 2019, only 39.7% of students in 3rd through 8th grade in California met the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress math standards. That percentage dropped to 33.8% in the 2020-2021 school year, a change that correlates to the educational challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Los Angeles County, only 31% of students met the math standard in 2021.

In California’s 2019 graduating class (the most recent year for which data is available), an estimated 23% of students took the ACT test. The average composite score was 22.6, slightly higher than the national average composite score of 20.7. The average math score of the 2019 California graduating class was 22.3.

Of the California graduating class of 2021, 24% took the SAT during high school. The average score in the math section was 530 (out of 800).
