Looking to reinforce math skills? The Math Intensive Program is a tailored approach to help you sharpen your math skills during the summer months!
For over a decade, Marks Education has put together targeted summer math tutoring programs for students who feel they need to “catch up” because they will be jumping from a regular to honors level math class, and for those who are simply looking to get ahead a bit and hit the ground running in the fall. We understand that, from school to school and class to class, math curricula vary quite a lot.
This year, due to unexpected school closures, the degree to which teachers were able to finish their intended course syllabi will probably vary just as much. We are, therefore, offering the Summer Math Intensive to tailor our tutoring to the unique needs and challenges that students are encountering this year. The summer program will be tailored to an individual student whether he or she is entering Algebra I, Advanced Placement BC Calculus, or anything in between. Tutors can also work with students in elementary or middle school who would benefit from a structured math program.
The Summer Math Intensive begins when we help match the student with an experienced and caring tutor who specializes in the area of math that will be most helpful. A parent will then schedule a free 30-minute consultation with the tutor to set a plan of action for 15 sessions aimed at bolstering the past year’s instruction, introducing next year’s topics, or both. We will also try to assess the student’s chief interests in order to relate the sometimes-abstract mathematical concepts to what the student most enjoys thinking about. We recommend that the 15 sessions be completed over six weeks. However, because all work is one-on-one, sessions can be scheduled according to student and tutor availability.
Sessions must be completed by August 25, 2020, and students are expected to complete 1-2 hours of homework between sessions.
