3 Essential Qualities to Look for in Your Child’s Math Tutor, New York, New York

Tutoring is a demanding job, and it requires a lot more than a thorough understanding of a particular subject to do it well. If your child is struggling in school—or you want to give them an academic boost—but you’re not sure where to find an exceptional math tutor who knows how to make learning fun, turn to FasTracKids in New York. Below, they share just a few qualities that everyone on their friendly and knowledgeable team possesses.

3 Traits to Look for in a Math Tutor

1. Creativity

You might not associate adding and subtracting with the creative process, but an effective tutor must be able to explain basic mathematical concepts in new and engaging ways. Regardless if your child is working on long division or calculus, his or her math tutor needs to be able to contextualize the formulas and essentially bring them to life. Memorizing the multiplication table is one thing, but actually comprehending why five times five equals 25 is the key to academic success.

2. Adaptabilitymath tutor

Good tutors must be flexible when it comes to lesson plans because every student is different. Some kids pick up specific concepts right away and are ready to apply them immediately, whereas others needs a little extra time on certain chapters. An effective tutor will tailor each lesson to the student and adapt the approach as needed if questions arise.

3. Enthusiasm

If the tutor does not find the material engaging, how can the student? Teaching is as much about enthusiasm and motivation as it is about the material in question. The younger a student is, the more motivation they will likely need from outside sources in order to complete various problem sets.
