The Importance of Quality Math Tutoring
Good math tutoring should be focused on much more than achieving a good grade on one test or in one class. Your grades and scores do not exist by themselves on islands. Instead, they are stepping stones toward your future, allowing you to increase your chances of getting accepted into college and having a brighter future. If you seek out the help of a subject-matter expert, you may gain a deeper level of understanding about the underlying concepts involved with your math courses, which can help to set you on a path to gaining more academic successes in your other classes. A great tutor can help you to catch up if you have fallen behind and can propel you forward if you are already a good student but want to accelerate and deepen your math learning.
How Math Can Affect Your College Admissions Process
According to the College Board, a majority of colleges require that students take at least three years of math in high school, and the most selective colleges look for rigorous classes and want to see that you’ve taken four years of math classes. The classes that colleges look for include algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and statistics. While you won’t necessarily be expected to take all of these courses, your target college will want to see that you have taken at least three or four years of them.
Selective institutions such as those in the Ivy League will also look at whether you took more rigorous classes in your math subject areas such as advanced placement or international baccalaureate options. If you haven’t taken enough math classes or have taken the easiest ones that you have available to you, you may risk a denial of your application to your top-choice university. Your grades in your math classes are also very important to admissions committees, making quality tutoring vital for your ultimate success.
How a Solid Foundation in Math Impacts Your Standardized Tests and Future
Getting a strong foundation in math can help you on your standardized tests in more ways than simply helping you to score higher on the math sections. This is because the other sections of the standardized tests require you to use strong critical thinking and analytical reasoning to solve the problems. Keith Devlin, the executive director of the Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research Institute at Stanford University, says that mathematical thinking involves creatively solving problems. When you develop a strong foundation in math concepts and subjects, it should thus help you to improve your scores on all of your SAT and ACT sections because of the improved ability to analyze what you are being asked and identify the correct approach to reaching solutions.
The Center for Public Education has found that students who take math courses through pre-calculus or calculus are 10 to 20 percent likelier to stay on track during college as they work toward graduation. A strong math foundation can also affect you throughout your life beyond college. In addition to helping increase your likelihood of attending college, graduating from college and earning a better income, a strong foundation in math may help you with problem-solving skills in a variety of everyday tasks.
