Frequently Asked Questions

Contact your local Mathnasium Learning Center with any questions you may have about elementary math school tutoring. Here are some of the more common ones we get:

  • What is considered below grade level?

    Generally, when a student is performing below grade level in math, that means they require additional elementary school math help beyond what is normally provided to other students in their class.

    When a child is below grade level, they fall behind in developing knowledge and skills, and the gap between their abilities and those of their peers widens.

  • How do I know if my child needs help in math?

    When a child needs help in math, they have difficulty applying math concepts to real-world issues. They get anxious if they need math homework help. If their grade in math is lower than in other subjects, or if they make negative comments about math, they may be struggling.

    Elementary school math tutoring can ease a child’s stress while they develop the confidence to grow and hone their newfound skills.

  • How can I make math practice fun at home?

    Making math practice fun is critical to supporting the efforts that elementary math tutors put forth to help your child. One of the easiest things to do is to use quirky, goofy, or unexpected examples of things.

    You can also incorporate age-appropriate games and use plenty of visual aids and technology while taking a hands-on approach to supporting your child. This approach encourages the child to interact with objects, keeping them engaged longer and facilitating learning.

  • How can I make sure my 5th-grader is ready for 6th-grade math?

    Every child is unique, as is every elementary school’s learning path. However, you can use some general guidelines to gauge if your child is ready for 6th-grade math or if they need elementary school math tutoring first.

    A few of these guidelines include solving word problems and showing them on graphs, comparing two decimal numbers, and solving problems involving fractions and mixed numbers. They should generally be able to understand ratios, rates, negative numbers, and percentages, among other concepts

  • How can I prepare my child for middle school math?

    Perhaps the most important thing you can do to prepare your child for middle school math is to get them interested in it on an organic level. This includes making the home a “math-positive” environment.

    Make math a part of everyday life using interactive math games and tutorials. In other words, gamify math. Additionally, get them the right kind of elementary school math tutoring with Mathnasium. Our elementary math tutors will help your child prepare for middle school math and gain the confidence to advance their knowledge.

  • Are there math tutors for elementary school children?

    Yes! Mathnasium elementary math tutors are specially trained to provide one-on-one instruction on fractions, addition and subtraction, percents, decimals, multiplication, and division. They can also provide math homework help at all levels.

    When children work with our math tutors, more than their grades improve. Their confidence in their abilities improves, and so do their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which they will apply to life outside of elementary school.

  • Are there ways to prepare my child for kindergarten math?

    One of the main things you can do to prepare your child for kindergarten is to make math a positive, everyday influence in their life at home. When you do, you’ll support and reinforce the benefits your child receives from elementary math tutoring in the future.

    Don’t just teach them to count; represent quantities with objects. Use games, cards, and a hands-on approach to making learning fun and keep them engaged.

  • What happens during the initial assessment at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we understand that assessments can sometimes feel stressful for students. That’s why we take a personalized and engaging approach to each assessment. We start by building rapport with your child, giving them a short center tour, and setting expectations.

    We conduct both a verbal and written assessment to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as to gain a true understanding of how each student approaches and thinks about math. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we use interactive methods to ensure your child feels comfortable and confident.

  • What happens after an assessment?

    After an assessment, we review the results with care to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement, as well as any learning gaps. Our expert team then creates a customized learning plan that focuses on your child’s individual needs and goals.

    We also provide ongoing feedback and support to help your child improve their understanding and confidence in math. We will continue to revisit their goals and adjust the learning plan as needed to ensure your child is making progress towards their objectives.
