Our Approach to Math Tutoring

At Emergent Education, we take a different approach to math tutoring. 

Instead of focusing on rote memorization and logarithmic learning, we work on developing creative problem-solving techniques and leveraging what you already know to work through math problems.

Using a growth mindset approach, we go beyond textbook problem-solving and help students gain confidence in their academic abilities.

We know that self-confidence plays a huge role in learning. In math tutoring sessions, we start by getting a sense of the student’s prior experience with math. There may be a specific concept, class, teacher, or experience that has damaged or caused strain on the student’s relationship with math. 

Our tutors work to meet students where they’re at and build up from there. We ensure that the student not only understands the content but that they feel like they can succeed.

Common Math Struggles We See

Math is one of those subjects that typically has the most negativity around it. Students tend to doubt their math abilities and problem-solving skills.

So often, the biggest thing hindering students from succeeding in math subjects is their mindset. 

This is especially true of younger students.

For higher-level math classes, what students need is pretty straightforward. Stuck on a tricky concept? Need help working through a complicated problem? Our tutors are prepared to offer content-specific support for those students.

Portland Math Tutors Can Help

Math tutoring is an excellent option for students who need academic assistance and those already displaying advanced knowledge of the subject.

Tutoring builds confidence and also eliminates potential boredom in the classroom.

The individual attention given by tutors can help a child struggling to keep up or even those who aren’t feeling challenged enough. Or perhaps you want to give your child a boost during school breaks to keep them on track or help them get ahead in the subject.

What to Expect

First, we talk about where you are, where you want to be, and what it will take to get there. Together, we’ll design a plan for your learning, setting goals and timeline targets. At each meeting, we will begin by evaluating your understanding, reviewing goals and making adjustments as needed. Then we work on what you have prepared for our session, usually the most challenging problems or assignments that you could not complete alone.

One-on-One VS. Small Group?

Traditional one-on-one tutoring allows for the most individualized support. Small group tutoring balances that support with more peer-to-peer engagement. Students can teach each other a lot about a subject when given the space and tools to do so. Reach out today to learn more.
