Grade 4 Math Tutor

Grade 4 Math Tutoring

In the fourth grade, math gets more conceptual and students will have to deal with fractions and decimals. It is very common for students to have trouble grasping the underlying principles of math as they move from the physical to the conceptual. If you notice your child is struggling, or you want to give them a boost to get ahead, this is a great time to get some additional in-home math tuition.

Our one-on-one tutors work with the local curriculum. In the fourth 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.
