Grade 1-7 Tutoring in Vancouver
Grade 1-7 math tutoring sessions are an opportunity for elementary students to enjoy the process of learning mathematics. Students often feel that assessments = tests = grades = judgement. This association causes many students to give up trying because they do not want to risk another failure. Starting in their elementary school years, it is important to build confidence and help young students to understand how assessments help them learn. We offer grade 1-7 math tutoring as well as reading and writing lessons.
About Math Tutoring : Grades 1-7
For grade 1-7 math tutoring we use JUMP Math for remedial work and Singapore Math once the student is more confident in math. JUMP Math is great for students who are struggling and have low confidence in their math skills, whereas Singapore Math challenges students to reach new heights in solving math problems.
Our math tutoring classes take place in the comfort of your home in Vancouver, at a time convenient for you. As part of our guaranteed quality and accountability, you will closely work with the company director, Mehrnaz Bassiri, to ensure your complete satisfaction with our tutoring services.
About Reading and Writing Tutoring : Grades 1-7
Most students do not write enough to learn to do it well. Writing is a core skill in life, not just for school. Our in-home tutors help students become better readers of their own writing and teach them to be self-critical. To improve reading and writing skills, we approach the tutoring lessons in the following three ways. Firstly, tutors hold students to a high standard while giving them support and encouragement. We believe that a simple English paper can become an opportunity to hone students’ creativity and communication skills if we hold students accountable for creating quality work. Secondly, we show students what good writing looks like. When students hold models of great writing in their hands, they pay close attention to structure. They notice tone and voice and how these are incorporated to make the writing come to life. We give students feedback on the key points and explain why integrating these points create better writing. And finally, we engage students in active discussions to ensure they are using their creativity and critical thinking in developing responses.
