Math Educational Program

Growing Scholars offers tutoring programs in math that focus on Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. In each program a variety of teaching techniques and manipulatives are used to introduce concepts. Our math programs are structured around scaffold and paced lessons based on the child’s diagnostic assessment. Each of our programs provides students with the skills needed to be successful in math.

Elementary Math
Elementary Math is designed to help students understand and master basic mathematics. A scaffold approach will be taken to teach students step-by-step explanations for solving problems. Our tutors will provide a wealth of activities for students to build fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Our math program will also teach students the skills needed for problem solving and critical thinking. Elementary Math also teaches number operations, fractions, decimals, percentages, measurement, estimating, ratios, probability and statistics, graphing and other elementary concepts. Our Elementary Math program takes a comprehensive approach in preparing students with confidence for an advanced math class.

Pre-Algebra
