**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."

The textbooks and classroom materials used in Sacramento schools are often geared toward standardized tests, which can prevent students from truly understanding the underlying logic of math. Learner tutors allow students to ask questions and work at their own pace so they can develop a firm grasp of essential math concepts.

In a standard Sacramento classroom, the teacher must develop math lessons for the group, which can leave individual students feeling frustrated and disconnected. At Learner, your child will work one-on-one with their private tutor, who will customize each lesson, so it has the perfect level, focus, and pace.

Our tutors take a fresh approach to algebra, geometry, and other math classes that many students find boring. They present intriguing examples and discuss real-world applications of key concepts so students feel prepared to use their problem-solving skills in college and in their careers.

When you hire a Learner math tutor for your child, you can feel confident you are giving them an outstanding education and the support they need to succeed in school. Every one of our instructors has a proven history of helping students gain confidence and make real academic progress.

The Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) maintains the mathematics standards for schools in the local area. These local Sacramento standards align with California's Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CA CCSSM), which were adopted in 2010 and modified in 2013.

Under CA CCSSM, math curricula should incorporate coherence and rigor to prepare students for college and their careers and provide them with “the knowledge and skills necessary to fully participate in the twenty-first-century global economy.”

In Sacramento City schools, math lessons in Grade 2 focus on units of measure, base-ten notation, and shapes. Students also continue building their addition and subtraction skills. By Grade 8, curricula feature lessons on functions and quantitative relationships, two- and three-dimensional space, and linear equations. Students also learn to apply the Pythagorean Theorem.

California's Common Core Math standards offer two options for high school students: a traditional pathway and an integrated pathway. SCUSD schools follow the integrated pathway and offer high school students Math 1, 2, and 3. In Math 1, students deepen their understanding of linear relationships and geometric properties, and theorems. The main topics in Math 3 are probability and statistics, triangle trigonometry, and various functions: polynomial, radical, and rational.

Students in California public schools take the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress in Grades 3-8 and in Grade 11. Test results from the 2020-2021 academic year show that only 7.7% of Grade 4 students met or exceeded the standard for math. Additionally, 46.1% of students scored in the "Standard Nearly Met" range.

It's important to note that factors relating to the COVID-19 pandemic affected testing conditions during the 2020-2021 academic year. The California Department of Education states that "care should be used when interpreting results" of data from that year.

Test results from the 2018-2019 school year show that 32.5% of Grade 4 students met or exceeded the mathematics standard, and nearly 26.0% fell into the Standard Nearly Met category. In that same year, 25.4% of high school juniors met or exceeded the math standard, and 24.6% nearly met it.

According to data supplied by College Board, only 24% of students in California's 2021 graduating class took the SAT during high school. Of those test-takers, 48% hit the college-readiness benchmark.

There are several vital factors to consider before you hire an online math tutor. Experience, knowledge, and cost are all necessary, but choosing someone whose personality will help your child feel comfortable and encouraged is also essential. Sessions should be held in a location that's safe and conducive to learning.

At Learner, we match every student with a math tutor who has the best experience, teaching style, and personality for their unique needs. Sessions are held in our virtual classroom so that students can learn from home, and each one is recorded and available for review at any time.
