Grade 1 Math Tutor

Grade 1 Math Tutoring

The first grade is essential in creating a strong foundation for future success. With one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your home, your child will not only be able to grasp the most fundamentally important concepts, they will also form a positive attitude towards math.

We work with the local curriculum which not only imparts mathematical concepts, but also requires your child to learn the following academic skills:

  • Problem solving.
  • Reasoning skills including pattern recognition, classification and the investigation of conjectures through discussion.
  • Reflecting and monitoring their thinking i.e. by explaining to others why they think their solution is correct.
  • Ability to use a variety of concrete, visual, and electronic learning tools and appropriate computational strategies to solve problems.
  • To relate mathematical ideas and procedures to everyday contexts.
  • Make basic representations of simple mathematical ideas.
  • Communicate mathematical concepts orally, visually, and in writing.
