Math is a challenging subject for many students. Without a strong foundation in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, students often have difficulty in high school and college math. At Learner, we offer private tutoring in a wide range of math subjects for students of all ages.

Algebra is the foundation of all upper-level math and science courses. This initial overview covers expressions, variables, functions, units, quadratic equations, inequalities, and their applications in real-world scenarios.

It builds on the foundation of algebra 1 to include multi-step word problems, polynomials, radicals, exponents, and the basics of trigonometry. These topics prepare students for calculus, college algebra, physics, and success in STEM careers.

Calculus has physics, engineering, computer science, economics, and medical applications. Standard topics in this class include limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, and differential equations.

Geometry expands on several algebra 1 topics and prepares students for algebra 2, trigonometry, and calculus. This class focuses on triangles, circles, conic sections, other shapes, and their properties.

It covers probability theory as it applies to data sets and teaches students to display and analyze data to discover trends and make predictions. Statistics has applications in countless fields, from medicine and chemistry to political science, economics, and engineering.

This practice covers sine, cosine, and tangent - the main trigonometric functions. Students learn to graph, identify, and manipulate these functions and see their applications in calculus, physics, engineering, and other industries.

**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."

Many studies show how beneficial one-on-one tutoring is for students of all ages. At Learner, we see the evidence all the time. Our tutors help students understand math theory and improve their problem-solving skills to see better grades and test scores quickly.

Many New York City students have trouble focusing in crowded classrooms. Our online platform gives students a safe, comfortable learning environment to ask questions and get the detailed answers needed to truly understand the material.

A good math tutor does more than help students overcome their challenges with a particular math class or topic. They enable students to understand all the practical applications of math. At Learner, we help students build a strong foundation in math, so they’re ready to meet their academic and career goals.

The current mathematics standards for the state of New York come from Common Core Math Standards. The state adopted the original Common Core Standards for Mathematics in 2011. In 2017, New York adopted its current standards: New York State Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards. This updated document results from 2 years of research on ways to improve the Common Core foundation. After working with education experts, New York revised and clarified the original standards to create the Next Generation Standards that are in place today.

Under current New York State guidelines, middle school and elementary school math classes focus on math basics, including numbers, arithmetic, functions, and algebraic thinking. High school mathematics students generally take geometry along with algebra 1 and 2, and there are several optional upper-level math classes.

The state’s Next Generation Math Standards encourage teachers to focus their efforts on helping students master key math topics that are most relevant in upper-level math classes and real-life applications. Textbooks and materials should be coherent from one year to the next, and they should be rigorous enough to fully prepare students to advance to the next math class.

New York uses standardized tests to evaluate students in the state’s schools. Students take these exams every year from 3rd grade through 8th grade. The most recent round of testing (the 2020-2021 academic year) showed a sharp drop in test attendance and test scores, which experts attribute to the school disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, only 20.5% of eligible New York students took the state assessment. Over half (51.5%) of those test-takers scored high enough to be considered proficient in math.

All New York City public school juniors have the opportunity to take the SAT exam for free on the designated school day. The most recent test scores available are those from 2019 before many universities dropped their SAT/ACT admissions requirements due to the challenge of testing during the pandemic. In 2019, SAT scores from New York students showed that only 20.5% of students scored well enough in math to be considered “college-ready.”

New York City students can find local math tutors with diverse qualifications and rates. However, online tutoring is a better option for many students, especially those with busy schedules. Students don’t have to travel across the city to meet with a tutor in person with an online tutor. They can log on from home and attend their session online.

With Learner, your student has access to the best tutors in the world. We match each student with the perfect tutor: a math expert with a compatible teaching style and personality.
