The Best Palos Verdes Algebra Tutor

November 15th, 2017

Are you looking for a top-tier Palos Verdes algebra tutor?  If you are, you’ve come to the right place. The following article will give both students and parents a firsthand breakdown, top to bottom, regarding the important elements that a Palos Verdes algebra tutor will need in order to equip students.

Palos Verdes Algebra tutor

First of all, we need to have our basics down. It’s a lot less painful to practice math when we aren’t stumbling over the little steps that are present in every topic. We’re talking about order of operations (PEMDAS)—mastering it to understand how to simplify expressions and manipulate equations with confidence—as well as how positive and negative numbers interact under different situations. This second area—knowing how negative numbers add and multiply— provides a necessary foundation for mental math and logic.

The struggles that, we, as a collective Palos Verdes algebra tutor see most commonly with algebra students arise when adding/subtracting integers (as well as multiplying/dividing them), combining terms, and factoring goes awry. These struggles happen all across the student spectrum: we see them in students who are struggling in their classes, and with students who are doing amazingly well. If math is difficult for you, I really recommend you call Study Hut Tutoring, just down the hill in the Redondo Riviera to pair up with a top tier Palos Verdes algebra tutor.  Take time to go over the basics as you encounter them again in your current material and repair those long-forgotten errors. Review whenever you feel yourself struggling with anything you have done in the past; the more recently you originally learned it, the easier it will be cement it. If you’re a student who does well in math, make sure to be careful with the small things: as you move on from one step to the next, be cautious of small mistakes.

Most of the issues that algebra students tend to have, though, stem from a larger mistake: not showing all of their work. Forgot to add a like term or distribute a negative somewhere? Neglecting to properly write out each step was likely a cause. Made a calculation error somewhere along the line? Locating the mistake is going to be a lot easier if you’ve shown all your work. The reasons that students refrain from showing certain steps vary, as do the errors that tend to plague them as a result of it. But whether it stems from students’ overconfidence in their abilities with mental math or simply a lack of diligence in writing everything out, the result is always the same: red marks on tests and quizzes that could likely have been avoided had all of the work just been written out.

Math Tutoring in El Segundo

Why is Math considered to be the hardest subject out of the sciences?

Of course, it is hard when you don’t understand what’s going on.
Math is all logic, and thus requires logical thinking. Unfortunately, that’s something that many people seem to lack nowadays.

Why are Gundo’s Math tutors better than all the other math tutors?

We are not just here to show your student how to solve the problem like the teacher often does in class. We won’t let your student leave the Hut by just doing the homework. We are here to make sure your student fully understand the materials and walk out the door with confidence in Math.

How do we assure about that?

First, we do a small analysis of your student’s behavior and personality, so that we get to know his or her styles of learning Math. As we all come from different backgrounds, there are students who prefer learning Math in many different ways: visual; you prefer using pictures and images, examples; you prefer learning by doing similar problems, and real life examples; you prefer knowing how to transform Math into real life situation. Our Gundo Math tutors are highly well-experienced and they all come from diverse background. Our goal is to clear the pathway of any obstacles in the way of mastering Math.

No worries! If your student doesn’t like doing Math; most likely they don’t understand what’s going on.

The Twelve Days of Mathmas: Twelve Ways to Improve Your Math Grade

December 6th, 2015

At Study Hut, our local experts will help you improve your grades as well as your study habits. Here are tips from a El Segundo Math Tutor to improve your math grade.

  1. Do the homework carefully
    Homework is an excuse to get really good at the work before you’re tested on it. If you rush through it, you’re wasting your time! Work through each problem carefully and check the answers to make sure you know what’s what.
  2. Do extra problems
    If you’re only assigned the odds, do the evens! This will save you from cramming and/or bombing the test.
  3. Write down the ‘warm up’ or ‘practice’ problems your teacher puts on the board
    If you’re teacher takes the time to go through it, this problem or something like it will probably appear on the test!
  4. Write out the steps to a problem: “Teach the Alien” Style
    This means you should explain each step in excruciating detail-as if you were teaching an creature from another planet who has never heard of geometry.
  5. Teach your mom how to do a particularly tough problem
    It is scientifically proven that the best way to learn something is to teach it. This is called the protégé effect. 
  6. Color code your notes
    For example, highlight the change in each step!
  7. Make a cheat sheet-and COLOR CODE it (even if you don’t get to use it on the test)
    This is a great way to review and identify the key concepts.
  8. Complete the study guide at least two days before the test
    This way if you’re confused, you have time to figure it out!
  9. Keep those cheat sheets and study guides
    They will be your main study material for the final!
  10. Study your old quizzes and tests
    Do this both for the practice problems and to figure out what type of questions your teacher uses: are they straight from the book? are they from the homework? were they done in class?
  11. Ask for help
    If you aren’t sure how to do it or only kind of understand, go to your teacher before or after school (added bonus: the face time shows that you’re putting in extra effort, which never hurts.)
  12. Come to Study Hut!
    Our college-educated tutors are well versed in all levels of math, from Pre-Algebra to AP Calculus. If you’re having trouble, a one-on-one session tailored to your needs with an attentive tutor could be the key to improve your math grade.
