In Mathnasium of Hixson’s middle school math tutoring program, students master computation and problem solving with rational numbers, i.e., fractions, decimals, and percent, as part of the process to successfully achieve Algebra readiness -- preparing for first-year Algebra (Algebra I). This creates a solid mathematical foundation for future subjects, including Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.

Our Approach

Middle school students receiving tutoring and math instruction at Mathnasium of Hixson engage with our team of instructors in a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written exercises. These do more than just meet State of TCAP TCAP math and End of Course (EOC) standards, they surpass the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Common Core standards.

Basic math concepts and skills blend to create our program which is designed to help students build number sense. Mathnasium’s program educates children on both “the how and why” the useful number rules they’re learning work and how they can be applied to interesting areas such as computer science, biology, and psychology.

Customized Learning Plan

Students are evaluated with a written and verbal assessment unique to Mathnasium. Based on the results, we develop a customized learning plan designed to close educational gaps they may have and make it easier for kids to jump ahead when students are ready for advanced math challenges. 

Middle school math builds upon elementary math’s foundation and focuses on explaining why mathematical rules work in order for children to learn and understand the rules, not just memorize them.

Additionally, we help students with their homework as part of each session and prepare them for school tests, Tennessee standardized tests, and End of Course (EOC) exams.

Helping Kids Catch Up in Middle School Math

Many students start middle school with gaps in their mathematical foundation. At Mathnasium of Hixson, our experienced math tutors work with kids to fill in those gaps while still addressing their current needs.

Helping Kids Keep Up and Get Ahead in Middle School Math

Middle school is also where many students will start Algebra and Geometry. At Mathnasium of Hixson, our math instructors work with middle school kids to forge ahead in math classes. Students are given a “preview” of math concepts and lessons that they will encounter in future classes to help prepare them for high school, college, and beyond.
