Math Tutoring For Children Ages 3-5:
At an early age, children begin to develop a sense of mathematics. Even infants can understand the concept of one more or one less. As children grow and develop, so does their understanding of numbers, or number sense. Good number sense is at the heart of a healthy mathematics education. This is where Anna will start when providing tutoring services to your child. By making math fun and applicable through games and hands on manipulatives, Anna will work with your young child to build their number sense which will provide a solid foundation to prepare them for elementary school.
Math Tutoring For Children Ages 6-12:
When children enter school age the math requirements and difficulty levels increase. Children may have shown no issues the year before, but as the curriculum gets harder they may start to show areas of weakness. This weakness could be in number sense or in critical thinking skills. It is important at this time to intervene early so that they do not become discouraged or get behind. Sometimes just a little 1:1 review and attention is all that it takes. The earlier students receive help, the quicker they catch up and the less they are affected in school.
