Tutoring can Help Deal with Frequent Math Struggles

Doing well in math is very important for academic growth and success but math can seem like a tricky subject. While some children are naturals and tend to understand and absorb every math concept very easily, others, continuously struggle and become frustrated by the idea of any math term. Math class doesn't have to be hard, and at the Tutoring Center in Colleyville, we want to ensure that students can thrive and enjoy math without facing frustration.

Factors that Affect How Well a Student Does in Math

  • Curriculum. The curriculum that is used to teach math makes a great difference in how well a child is able to understand and fully comprehend the subjects. The way that some curricular activities and lessons are designed can help certain children understand but not all. Many classes are designed for more auditive or visual learners and this can leave behind children who do not learn best through those methods. Another problem is that most curriculum is structured in a very particular way, and switching from one type of curriculum to another can greatly confuse or disorient a child. This happens when a child changes schools or is transferred to another class or level.
  • Attention Span. Math is not like other subjects, it requires you to have a very basic previous knowledge and that you master that basic knowledge before moving on to the next level. For example, it is crucial that you know the numbers in order to learn to add and subtract. It is then important that you know this lesson before learning to multiply and divide, and on and on until you reach higher levels of algebra and geometry etc. When a student lacks a good foundation of the basic terms and knowledge they can struggle continuously and not be able to learn the next and more advanced math concepts. One of the major problems of not being able to learn the basic concepts is a poor attention span. Usually, these basic math concepts are taught at an elementary level, where students are younger and more prone to the lack of focus and attention. Using engaging methods and constant review is a great way to get students to thoroughly understand all the essential aspects of each math lesson before they are faced with more complicated and intricate math levels.
  • Memory. Good memory ability is also important in regards to math, but all students can learn to have a better memory through proper skill training. As mentioned previously, math requires that the basic knowledge is remembered and recalled in order to comprehend the next levels of math. This means that what was previously learned needs to be well guarded in the student´s memory in order to recall that information as needed.
  • Vocabulary. Different terms and vocabulary are used in math. They can sometimes become complicated and it can be hard to remember which term refers to what formula or what concept they represent. Going over the new terms and math vocabulary that is learned is important so that this does not create further confusion or misunderstandings in regards to the next math lesson. In some cases building a strong vocabulary foundation of the math terms can be all it takes for a student to quickly start improving and actually enjoying math. It can take only a few minutes every day to go over common math terms that need to be used often to truly make a positive impact.
