2022 Virtual Math Tutoring

The purpose of our Math programming is to improve students’ confidence and skills in foundational math concepts while still in elementary and middle school.  Studies tell us if the foundational math concepts are not learned, the skill gap continues to grow as students get older, therefore making advanced mathematical concepts harder to learn. If basic math concepts are not mastered the path to taking more advanced classes in mathematics is reduced in high school and STEM careers become less of an option in college.
