How can students learn about math?
How to ask a math question?
How do you get an answer?
With a teacher?
What if the answer isn’t there?
With tutors, the answers are more likely to be available.
But some students can’t get the help they need with their teachers.
The National Center for Educational Statistics has been tracking students who are underperforming at school and using them as test takers.
The Center found that at least half of the students who were enrolled in math classes in the 2012-2013 school year were underperforming in their classwork.
The math tutoring program was designed to provide students with access to tutors and help them learn.
“They’re the ones who are having the hardest time.
And they’re the students most at risk of being left behind in school,” said Julie Peeples, the center’s research and policy director.
Peeples says students who receive math tutor help often come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
She said it is also important for schools to have tutors because they offer additional opportunities to learn and can offer a pathway for those who are already on track to graduate.
Peeses also said it’s important for students to be able to learn from the tutors they get.
“It’s important to be involved.
It’s important that you understand that there are some great things that are happening,” she said.
Students can receive tutoring in grades 3 through 8.
The program is funded by the state, but it can also be done through private donations.
But in order to receive help, the student must complete a four-hour tutoring class in the district, as well as be eligible for tutoring from a private teacher.
“You have to have an outstanding score in math,” Peebles said.
The program has been successful.
A recent study found that nearly half of students who received math tutorship reported having higher achievement in the second quarter of the school year.
The average achievement of the math tutored students was about 8 points higher than the average for the non-teacher tutored group.PEEPSES said the goal of the program is to be sure the tutoring is providing a fair opportunity for all students.
She wants to see more students receiving tutoring.
“We know there are children who are just out of math,” she added.
“We want to make sure that it’s accessible to them, but we also want to see those who need it get it.”
