Support your child’s preparation for high school math

Most 8th grade math textbooks focus on getting students comfortable with the concepts and problem-solving skills that they’ll need in high school algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus classes. However, 8th grade topics such as systems of equations, word problems, and functions can be confusing, especially for students who don’t have the opportunity – or the confidence – to ask questions in class.

With private 8th grade math tutoring from Learner, your child can ask all the questions they want and work at their own pace. The one-on-one environment ensures that every student has the support they need to truly understand the material so that they’re ready to succeed in high school math.

Learner’s 8th grade math tutoring program offers unique benefits to students and parents

Engaging material

Many 8th graders complain about math homework and wonder when they’ll ever need to graph a function or use the Pythagorean theorem in “real life.” To keep students interested and engaged, Learner tutors develop compelling lessons that focus on the real-world applications of math whenever possible. This type of instruction helps students relate to the material for better long-term retention.

Supportive learning environment

Many middle school students fall behind in math class because they get distracted by their peers or they are too embarrassed to speak up when they don’t understand the material. Our online platform was designed to be the optimal learning environment: free from distractions and full of useful features to encourage discussion and collaborative problem-solving.

Thoughtful, forward-thinking lessons

Our tutors understand that 8th graders are preparing for high school and beginning to look ahead to college entrance exams. In tutoring sessions, they will always emphasize the most important math concepts and skills that students need to master for good grades and test scores in middle school and beyond.

Why students love Learner.

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."
