Overcome The Feeling That Math is Hard
If you’ve heard your child say math is hard, or if you’ve observed they avoid working on math problems, they are probably having difficulty because they have a weak understanding in one or more topics. They would likely benefit from private tutoring, where they can ask any question and be confident no one will make them feel embarrassed.
In math, if you haven’t mastered a topic, understanding the next topic that must be learned is difficult. If they don’t understand one or two related topics, it’s like trying to climb a ladder with one or two rungs missing. This can lead to a feeling of hopelessness and math becomes the dreaded and “hated” subject.
Remove The Thought “I just don’t get it”
David knows the feeling of discouragement that can result from a weak understanding of several math topics. He has experienced “just not getting it”.
A weak understanding of past math concepts leads to difficulty with the current math topics. It’s critically important that a student discover the missing pieces of the math puzzle and gain a correct understanding.

Special Summertime Math Tutoring and Review
During the summer months we provide a thorough review of what was covered in the previous school year. A summer review prevents the significant loss of skills during summer vacation.
In addition, for many students a summer review provides a clarification of misunderstood topics. This makes the next year’s math courses much easier!
