Newport Math Tutor

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.

 

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.

Finals prep at West High confirmed!

May 9th, 2011

Mark your calendars! Study Hut Tutoring and West Torrance High School will once again be partnering to offer FREE tutoring to all students prior to Final exams. The sessions will be coordinated again by West High Librarian Ms. Mary Lou Cordaro, and with the blessing of Principal Egan.

Finals prep tutoring will be provided in small group format based on the subject area of need. Translation: If your student is struggling in geometry class, he or she will be asked to work in an area with other students whom are similarly struggling with geometry, and with a tutor who is very knowledgeable and strong with geometry.

Both Finals preparation sessions will be held in the school library, and students MUST sign up in advance at the library with Ms. Cordaro. Space is extremely limited, and spots will be offered on a first come, first served basis. We had over 100 students each day during first semester Finals in January. The dates and times of the Finals prep sessions are as follows:

Friday, June 10th: 3-5 p.m.
Saturday, June 11th: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

For those of you who are not familiar with Study Hut Tutoring, we are a team of young, local tutors, fresh out of college. We have offices in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and El Segundo, and we have served families and students throughout the South Bay for over five years.

Palos verdes Geometry tutor

June 2nd, 2009

At the Study Hut we are happy to offer tutoring in Geometry, a subject that many students struggle with. Geometry courses in the Palos Verdes School District teach students to develop an understanding of the concept of proof in geometric contexts and construct formal logical arguments. Furthermore, Algebraic techniques are applied in the solution of problems involving geometric figures in two- and three-dimensions. The most difficult aspect of Geometry seems to be the proof, which requires knowledge (and the ability to instantly recall) numerous theorems. Proofs are also challenging for students because they require students to problem solve in a novel way. Its a type of logic and mathematical problem that has thus far, never been encountered by most students. Therefore, the combination of a new method of problem solving along with the required knowledge of many theorems, make the proof one of the biggest challenges in Geometry.
