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 students feel frustrated, angry, or ashamed when they have trouble in math classes. Our tutors understand those feelings and offer compassionate, patient support. In this safe, positive environment, students can regain their confidence and enjoyment of math, so they're ready to succeed in all their current and future courses.
Learner students meet with their instructors via our innovative online platform, which is compatible with most devices and features a virtual whiteboard and video chat functionality. Each session is recorded so students can replay lessons when they're doing math homework or studying for a test.
At Learner, we believe education is about more than just passing standardized tests or memorizing formulas and algorithms. Our math tutors create intriguing lessons that incorporate real-world applications and logic puzzles to help students gain a deep understanding of the material and hone accurate problem-solving skills.

The Salt Lake City School District oversees local public schools to ensure they provide students with the best mathematics education possible. The school district's math standards align with the Utah Mathematics Core State Standards.
Grade 1 math focuses on several fundamentals:
By Grade 5, students should be mastering the addition and subtraction of fractions, learning about volume and decimals, and practicing multiplication and division (including division with two-digit divisors). Grade 8 math is designed to prepare students for high school and includes several topics: systems of linear equations, functions, two- and three-dimensional space, and the Pythagorean Theorem.
To graduate, high school students in Utah must complete three mathematics credits, but there are various pathways to do so. The standard path includes Secondary Math I, II, and III, but there are also extended versions of each course, which can prepare students for high school calculus. The state considers any student who completes calculus to have met the graduation requirements regardless of the number of math credits earned.
The Utah State Board of Education tracks the results of state assessments. Students in Grades 3-8 take the RISE Assessment, and first- and second-year high school students take the Utah Aspire Plus assessment.
In the 2018-2019 school year, 46.1% of Salt Lake District kindergarten through Grade 8 students "demonstrated mastery of grade-level standards" in math, slightly lower than the state average of 47%. The achievement percentage for high school students in the same year was 38.5%, equal to the state average.
In the 2020-2021 academic year, 32.4% of Salt Lake District students in kindergarten through Grade 8 met state math standards. This percentage is lower than the state average of 42%. High school assessment results from the same year show only 28.7% of students demonstrated mastery, which is again lower than the state average of 33%.
However, test results from the 2020-2021 academic year reflected continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Utah Board of Education does not advise comparisons between 2020-2021 scores and those from previous years.
Before you hire an online math tutor, there are several factors to consider. It's vital to ensure the instructor has the right qualifications and experience and that their rate fits your budget.
It's also essential to think about the online meeting space. Will your child be able to watch their tutor solve example problems? Will they be able to show their own work for help and critique? Are lessons recorded for later review?
With Learner, the answer to all these questions is a resounding yes. Our online platform offers students a safe, distraction-free learning environment.
