Math Tutoring

Math is taught and tested in a wide variety of methods.  Consequently, math tutoring requires a differentiating approach uniquely tailored to achieve the desired results.  If a student is interested in performing on an upcoming exam, then sessions will concentrate wholly on the material and test taking strategies for that particular exam.  If the objective is to build a strong foundation that will support mathematical proficiency in the current class and future course loads, however, sessions will focus on teaching the homework as per the curriculum of the class.

Of all the subjects in academia, math is the most cumulative.  It is easy for an otherwise distinguished student who misses a class or is not properly taught a mathematical concept to fall behind.  Because of the aggregate nature of the subject matter a number of ideas can be hinged on a single point that, if not fully understood, will present a cognitive barrier to comprehending dependent ideas.

TESTIMONIALS

Larisa F.
(tutored regularly from September ’05 to June ’08 in Math and Chemistry)
"I walk into a session not even knowing how to start a type of problem, and I leave able to solve any version of it."
Dan B.
(a Writing client in January’09)
"He’s just so good at it… he’s like a machine, you give him a writing prompt and out comes an A paper."
Ben T.
(tutored regularly from August ’06 to June ’07 in Math and then College Admissions Essay Writing)
"[W. S. Emara] was involved and interested in my success. While other tutors I’ve had were impersonal time-watchers, my Emara Academic Solutions sessions wouldn’t even start until after some time talking with the family."
Ina R.
(mother of two students tutored in English in ’07)
“Besides the immediate results of higher English grades, the more striking results were long-term. Both of my children became more engaged students that take pride in their work raising scores in more than just English class.”
