Getting A Much Needed Math Tutor

Finding a math tutor can be difficult because of the range of studies in math from algebra to trigonometry to calculus. All of these fields of math require certain skills which all tutors might not possess. A tutor good in calculus is not always good in trigonometry. This is where searching for a tutor online really comes in handy. By searching for a tutor online, one can confirm that the tutor is qualified to teach what they are tutoring. You can either send the tutor a message and ask about their skills in the particular math subject or you can read the other user’s reviews of them in that subject. Typically there are so many tutors available for a given city that you don’t need to be picky. You can find the best for your math needs and improve your math grades in no time.

In college, I struggled with math. Math is a building subject in that you learn something and then the next section typically takes the basic skills of math and puts them to test further. I will give an example. Trigonometry uses formulas like Pythagoras’ theory to find the missing side of a triangle. It uses basic algebra to solve for the missing side. If you are particularly skilled in algebra, solving for the missing side of a triangle can be difficult. This was my problem in college. I was required to take several upper level calculus classes. So I did what most people would do-I first took the introduction to calculus class. I did pass the class but just barely. This was only a problem when I moved onto the upper level classes and had no clue what I was doing. You can see why getting a math tutor sooner than later is so important. If you wait too long there is too much catching up to do and one can feel completely lost.

The best solution to my problem was getting a local math tutor to help me. My particular learning style was different from most in that I needed to just understand the concepts to be able to do the math problems. Unlike most people who can just memorize how to do something and then perform it over and over. My math tutor luckily picked up on this and was able to teach me the basics conceptually and once I understood that, it was like a light bulb going off in my head. I could move on to the more advanced sections that relied on the basic understanding that my math tutor had helped me understand.

I can’t stress enough how much my math tutor helped me understand the basic concepts of math and calculus before be moved onto advanced math. Without the help of my tutor, I might still be in college struggling with back math concepts. Thank you math tutor.
