Grade 3 Math Tutor
Third grade math is seminal in providing students with essential building blocks and basic mathematical concepts. It’s on these building blocks that the higher grades depend which is why it is so essential that students not only develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, but also develop a positive attitude towards math. Providing in-home personalized math tutoring in the safe and comfortable environment of your home will help to promote healthy attitudes and essential math building blocks.
Our one-on-one tutors work with the local curriculum. In the third grade, students must master not only important mathematical concepts, but also 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.
