### Common Difficulties

Students in Math 4 to 7 often have difficulty grasping the concepts of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers without using their fingers. Once they get the tips and tricks, they will usually master it. Students often make mistakes in solving equations involving orders of operations. Interpreting and solving word problems poses another challenge.

### How Math Tutor Network can help?

Our fully-trained tutors realize the common difficulties students encounter and adjust the pace of teaching to the student. Depending on the student, more visual structures may be used to help students understand math concepts. Word problems will be given to students whenever appropriate to build their problem solving skills for the future.

Instead of giving answers away, tutors will ask a lot of questions to lead students to the answer. They will provide additional examples and exercises where necessary to help students refine their understanding.

### Our Recommendations

Math Tutor Network recommends Math 4 to 7 students do math everyday. Set aside 30 minutes a day and have your child practice the math concepts taught or the homework assigned during the lesson. By practicing everyday, the math your child learn will be retained in their long term memory.

### Tutoring Lessons

Math Tutor Network recommends a 1-hour lesson once or twice a week for elementary school students.
