There comes a time in every child’s life when they are going to need homework help, especially when it comes to math. And when that moment comes, you want to have a good tutor on stand-by ready to help –– which is where BriteMinds comes in. Our team of dedicated tutors is experienced working with kids of all ages and across most school subjects, including math. Let us tell you about everything we have to offer.
What we offer
Math is one of the most wide-ranging subjects taught in school. From pre-Algebra to Calculus and beyond, there is a lot to cover. Here at BriteMinds we offer help for almost any level, including the following:
- Basic math concepts taught from pre-K to 3rd grade
- Fractions, decimals, and measurements
- Word problems
- Measurement & geometry
- Algebra I and Algebra II
- Mathematical analysis
How we do it
There is no denying that math is one of the most challenging subjects, especially once your student gets to high school. Our approach is to not only help your child with their homework and other school assignments, but to teach them core skills they can practice for the rest of their lives. Below are some of thinking skills we inculcate in our lessons:
- Comprehension and interpretation of statistics
- Seeking and identifying strategies and reasoning
- Flexibility of thinking
- Using and understanding appropriate mathematical vocabulary and terminology
- Identifying the sequence of complex operations
- Showing evidence for validity and self-correcting if necessary
Aside from math skills, we also teach our students other general skills applicable in multiple parts of their lives.
One of them is time management, where we teach students how to use their time efficiently so that they can accomplish more while spending less time. As you probably already know, sometimes kids struggle with homework not because it is difficult but because they don’t manage their time well –– maybe they play too many video games, or maybe they take study breaks that last too long. Once we teach them how to budget their time better, most of our students report still having plenty of leisure time.
We also emphasize persistent focus, which is exactly what it sounds like. One way we teach students how to keep better focus is by having them use a planner –– either electronic or in paper form –– so that they stay up to date with important deadlines and assignments.
Our commitment to students of all ages is hopefully clear by now, We care about ensuring our students excel academically and are positioned at the top of their class. When they come to BriteMinds, we will teach them skills that will help them for the rest of their lives. Give us a call today: (310) 541-2005.
