High School Math Tutoring
High School math courses can be challenging and even intimidating for students. Some students even question if they are necessary for their future. However, these courses are an essential prerequisite for higher-level math courses at the college level. According to a research study, (http://www.act.org/research/policymakers/pdf/crisis_report.pdf) by the educational nonprofit ACT, students who take Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and one additional higher-level math course are much more likely to do well in math at the college level.
On the other hand, algebra and other high school math courses are not only for the college bound. The ACT also found that even high school graduates headed straight for the work force need the same math skills as college freshman. This research study (http://www.act.org/research/policymakers/reports/workready.html) looked at occupations that do not require a college degree but pay wages high enough to support a family of four. Researchers found that math and reading skills required to work as an electrician, plumber, or upholsterer were comparable to those needed to succeed in college.
With this in mind, taking on the challenges of high school math can be a daunting process, especially for those students who do not have a strong aptitude in math. This is where the value of effective tutoring comes in. At MySuperTutor, we specialize in helping students who may not be strong in math or may be missing some key concepts.
