Serving McLean Virginia
For many students, the mere mention of the word “math” can produce immediate and noticeable anxiety. This can result from a variety of factors. For younger students, for example, the challenge may stem from trouble understanding concepts like fractions, decimals, or multi-step word problems. For middle school and high school students, the way the material is being taught in the traditional classroom may be the issue. Others may experience difficulty recalling facts or comprehending the logical relationship between numbers.
No matter what aspect of math is causing your child to struggle – and whether it is with elementary math or a college-level course – our top-credentialed tutors have the experience, compassion, and energy to make learning math a fun, rewarding, and success-producing process. In fact, one hour with an Educational Connections tutor delivers twice the value of an hour with other services.
One reason for this success is the variety of research-proven strategies our tutors rely on to deliver results, including:
- the use of manipulatives and multi-sensory approaches to engage students
- the introduction of rhymes and games for younger students
- recall strategies, such as work from known facts, finger tricks, and recognizing patterns
In addition, our tutors do not deliver strategies in a cookie-cutter fashion like many other tutoring services. Rather, a program is customized to meet the unique needs of your child’s specific learning style. This approach not only enables us to offer superior tutoring and test prep that fosters success, but also an enjoyable, stress-reducing experience for both students and their parents.
