Elementary & Middle School Math Tutors in NYC - Ivy Tutors Network

Elementary & Middle School Math

Success with math starts early. Our Ivy League tutors have been providing an excellent foundation to students for almost 20 years. We know that math can seem really hard and overwhelming at times. But it can also be fascinating, exciting, and even fun. Our brilliant and caring tutors are here to bridge the gap.

Math fundamentals are the blocks upon which the rest of a math education is built. What’s more, we find it’s important to teach students that having a “growth mindset” is key to success in math. Working hard at a problem is something to be proud of and saying “I’m not good at math” must be reframed into “I’m still learning to be great at math.” After all, no one is born knowing algebra. As Albert Einstein famously said: “It’s not that I am so smart. It’s that I sit with the problem longer.” Our brilliant and caring tutors help students enjoy sitting with the problem and figuring it out. The sooner this skill is learned, the better. We love working with younger students to ensure they feel confident in the basics they will need to be successful in and stay curious about math for their whole lives.
