In order to be a successful math student, it is important to keep track of assignments, test-dates, and study tasks.  If you find yourself struggling, you can ask yourself, ” have I been correcting my assignments either during class or at home?”  Next, ask yourself, “do I make flashcards for the problems that I miss, with the question on one side, and a detailed solution on the other?”  If the answer is no, it’s a good place to start.

However, nothing beats a Newport math tutor that can help you with your step-by-step problem solving process and keep you accountable every step of the way.  Someone that has tutored the students in your same class last year is going to know what comes next, and where students struggle.  Moreover, you’re going to get help with custom practice quizzes, future concepts, and you can even repair missing gaps from previous years’ math classes.

Fundamentals are a huge part of helping students.  Having a Newport math tutor by your side from an early age has its advantages.  We work with students of all ages.  We tailor to every student during our one hour customized lessons.  If you’re looking for a local place, with helpful and friendly staff, you’ve come to the right place.   Study Hut Tutoring is located on West Coast Hwy in Newport Beach.  Please fill out a contact form on this page and we will call you back to schedule you with a top-tier Newport math tutor here at the Hut.  We are a close-knit team and we love what we do.


Applied Concepts: Common Core in Real Life

March 3rd, 2016

It is post- finals here in Newport Beach and you know what that means: time for a fresh start! New chapters, new lessons, and a ton of new material in our various courses. As we dive in here at Study Hut Newport Beach, our students start to wonder WHY all of this information is relevant. “After the test I’m not going to need to remember this,” they say. “Where will I find Common Core in real life?”

Common Core in Real Life

Well, the past couple weeks of tutoring sessions have been all about relating our school concepts to those of daily life. Applying concepts like Common Core Math, Chemistry, Biology– you name it!–can be tough. Our tutoring sessions relate these subjects to a better understanding of the world around us.

In Chemistry, Newport students have been working on papers and powerpoints exposing each of the Elements of the Periodic Table. Students found that Hydrogen contributes to plant fertilizers in gardens, while Nitrogen plays a part in cleaning supplies.

In Common Core Math, high school students are struggling with graphing piece- wise equations, but find it helpful to conceptualize these sporadic values with examples such as, test grades, or job wages. Common Core in real life is not only present, but extremely relevant.

In Biology, students are not simply memorizing cell terminology on notecards, but more importantly they are putting vocabulary into their own words. For example DNA is “the instruction manual of the human body.”

All in all, we have been working hard the past few weeks to make sense of the material their teachers are throwing at us. Not only does it help on quizzes and tests for students to understand these topics in their own manner, but it also reminds them that what they are learning now will help them down the road.

Common Core Tutoring in Newport Beach

November 1st, 2015

It was only a year ago that our phones were ringing off the hook here at the Newport Beach Study Hut with concerned parents, some of whom were asking about current Study Hut students, and others that were new or prospective clients, and they all had questions about the same thing: Common Core tutoring in Newport Beach.  Parents wanted to know what the Common Core math curriculum was going to change, what it would look like in English classrooms, and how we were assisting our students with Common Core tutoring now that we had begun the school year and were working with the content first-hand.

Many websites do contain plenty of helpful information that can demystify the curriculum and break down the process, such as this official California Department of Education site: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/ma/im/ and while information like this can be helpful, sometimes it is just too confusing for the average mom or dad trying to rush one kid to piano lessons and another to soccer practice.

After having gone through all grade levels of the Common Core curriculum last year, we here at Study Hut can officially say that we have got you covered.  We know where students are most likely to get stuck, and we know how to help them get back up and truly understand the critical foundational material involved in each of the building lessons.  Whether you love Common Core’s arrival in Newport Beach or just plain can’t stand it, we can all agree that the lessons and levels build upon each other.  So when your student gets caught on a few concepts, please do not just accept it as a bad grade and move on.  These deficiencies or areas of missing conceptual understanding will come back to bite students later in the year, and in most cases with math and English, the same concepts will come back up year after year.  That is just all the more reason to make sure to get a solid base for your son or daughter as early as possible, and be sure to seek help with Common Core tutoring if you feel like your kiddo needs a little bit of extra support in order to get caught up or stay ahead in his or her classes at Newport Harbor High School or Corona del Mar High School.
