If the qualifications check out, and your child is happy with their tutor, then it just comes down to how well theyre actually doing in the subject. If you arent really all that proficient in your own math, so as to test them yourself, then it may pay to schedule a meeting with the math teacher at school, and see if they have noticed any significant improvements in your childs grades. So, if you want to make sure that your child is going to have a better shot at getting the job that they want in the future, nows the time to take action. It isnt a hard task at all and in a short moment starting from now, you can employing your very own math tutor.
Another way of getting help for 6th grade math, as well as going a little extra homework, is to find a tutor or get access to an online learning system. There are many of these places available now a days and you can often get free access for few days to test drive a program, to see whether their method of teaching is a good fit for the way that your child learns subjects and takes in information. Make sure you find a system that encompasses the level and breadth of subjects that your child is learning. A lot of math students find equations, probability and algebra difficult to grasp. With probability for example, students find it bewildering taking in the concepts of probability and chance, as well as statistical inference and analysis. Imagine a child not fully understanding this topic in the class setting and then being given 6th grade math probability homework sheets. They would be completely overwhelmed.
So lets look at the other side. Is it possible for people to learn math in everyday life; running their business or household, doing projects, etc.? Is this possible? I believe it is and it is already happening without anyone being aware of it. My daughter professed to hate math, yet she is doing math everyday on Neopets. When I asked her about it, she said that it wasnt real math. So what kind of math was it? I think she meant that it wasnt school math. I met an airline pilot who went into great details about the calculations she did in her head in order to fly the plane. Later she professed that she hated math in school. She wasnt good at it. She wasnt even capable of balancing her own checkbook. When I pointed out that the calculation she did to fly the plane was math, she was adamant that it wasnt because she wasnt any good at math in school. She said "Its just a formula that I plug numbers into." Marilyn Burn relates a similar story about an interior decorator who could price out the cost for a complete room, but also felt that she wasnt any good at math. These are people who couldnt do school math but are doing the math that their everyday lives demand of them. They probably learned this math on the job; hence they dont relate it to school math.
I have a friend who is an architect. Its a good career for him. He is skillful at what he does, he enjoys the work, and he cant see himself in another field. His degrees are all from Ivy League institutions and in almost every way, hes the sort of person that gets held up as a role model for students, especially students who dont like math and need a reason to study the subject. The irony is that he doesnt particularly like math, doesnt consider himself to be good at the subject, and almost didnt follow through on his dream of becoming an architect because he was alarmed by the frequent declarations of math teachers that architecture is a profession that uses a lot of math.
The next step is a conversation about why boys/girls act the way they do, followed by lots of questions about crushes, flirting and relationships. Theres also some discussion about parents and why they seem to be so annoying, but at this point the kids are much more interested in themselves and their classmates. We have one more day together. I ask each gender separately how they would like to frame our last day together. Unanimously the kids tell me they would like to ask each other some questions to gain understanding into why boys/girls act the way they do. I give them an opportunity to write down their questions anonymously and end with an "anxiety check". Everyone is feeling pretty comfortable.
Every parent wants to get the best for our kids, and if that means getting a math tutor to improve their below averaged grades, then so be it. Then, in what ways you can choose a good 4th-6th grade math tutor? You may already know that it is hard to find a job nowadays and just imagine what the world will be like after your kid grows up and reached the age where they need to work and look after themselves? Im sure you can; that child of yours is going to have to have a degree, minimum, to even be competitive with the other candidates; so doesnt it make sense to strengthen up those weak subjects as early as possible in their academic career? To start with, when looking for a 6th grade math tutor, you have to work out whether your child responds best to a male or a female teacher; it could make all the difference when it comes to them actually paying attention, and learning what they need to. How do you know which they respond to best?
