Is your student feeling lost or overwhelmed in math class? It’s a common problem for students, and it can start as early as elementary school. Sometimes dry textbooks and traditional classroom lectures aren’t enough to help students catch up. At Learner, we offer private math tutoring with expert instructors.
When you hire a math tutor for your child, you invest in their entire academic future. With a strong understanding of key math concepts, your student is ready to succeed in high school, college, and their chosen career. With Learner, your child gets personalized help from a highly qualified expert.
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."
Countless studies prove that private tutoring is beneficial for students. Most Learner students see improvements in their math homework and quiz grades within a few weeks. Our tutors can help students prepare for Arizona’s standardized tests and college entrance exams such as the ACT.
Many of the textbooks used in Phoenix schools focus on rote memorization of math facts and problem-solving strategies. While this knowledge is essential, our tutors help students understand the basis of those math facts and why those strategies work so they are ready for future math classes.
Our Phoenix students get the chance to ask as many questions as they need to understand the material truly. They can work on their homework problems with their tutor’s guidance, gaining confidence in themselves and building vital skills for standardized tests and the college math classes.

The Arizona Department of Education adopted the state’s Mathematics Standards in 2016. These standards continually allow students to progress in math between kindergarten and 12th grade. Additionally, the standards prepare students to use their math skills in college and the workforce.
Under the state’s math standards, middle school math students must show proficiency in several areas, including computation, pictorial representations, verbal or written reasoning, and real-world applications. High school students take algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and a fourth math class, such as trigonometry or pre-calculus.
Under current state law, students must pass an algebra 2 class to graduate. However, legislators are considering removing this requirement in favor of creating an alternative graduation pathway that allows students to take an advanced math course of their choosing after completing basic algebra and geometry. Critics of this measure worry that students won’t be college-ready without algebra 2, especially since completing this course is an admission requirement at Arizona State University and all of the state’s other public colleges.
Math test scores for students in Phoenix and Arizona have fallen in recent years. This drop correlates with COVID-related school closures and transitions to remote learning, which affected students throughout the country.
In the spring of 2021, only 31% of Arizona students passed the math portion of the state’s standardized tests, given to students in 3rd through 8th grades and in 10th grade. Math scores in 2021 were 11 percentage points lower than in 2019. Educators fear this downward trend will continue as students take their standardized tests in the spring of 2022.
Many colleges, including the University of Arizona, are moving to a test-optional admissions process that doesn’t require applicants to submit SAT or ACT scores. However, some Arizona test-prep tutoring services have seen a significant increase in enrollment, indicating that standardized test scores are still an important concern for students and their parents.
If you’ve decided to invest in your child’s math education by hiring a math tutor in Phoenix, choosing someone whose teaching skills are just as impressive as their math knowledge is essential. If your child is preparing for the SAT or ACT, you might consider looking for a test prep expert.
With Learner, your student can work with a tutor entirely online, so you don’t need to worry about driving all over Phoenix to meet in person. You can choose the very best instructor regardless of their geographical location.
