Find a Math Tutor in Halifax

If you're struggling with understanding mathematical concepts, you’re not alone! Many elementary, high school and university students (even those who choose to continue to pursue the study of math) find themselves lost with their math homework. If numbers aren’t your strong suit, and you’re finding yourself panicking through practice problems, it's time to look into getting yourself a math tutor in Halifax.  

 

Right now in Halifax, you have access to tons of experienced and highly-rated math tutors right at your fingertips with Superprof! Available either in-person or online, a tutor can give you one-on-one guidance on all your math problems and questions. With the help of a dedicated tutor to walk you through your math homework at your own pace, your math course doesn’t have to ruin your GPA–or frankly your life. 

How can I make math easier? 

  1. Connect it to the real world: When you can tangibly see just how useful math is in our daily lives, learning mathematical concepts becomes more practical and real. Here are some daily tasks for which math is important:
  • Managing money
  • Balancing the checkbook
  • Figuring out distance, time, and cost for travel
  • Understanding loans for cars, trucks, homes, schooling, or other purposes
  • Understanding sports (being a player and team statistics)

Remove the abstractness from learning math and make it relevant to your daily life to boost motivation. The next time you're at a restaurant and need to calculate the tip, don’t pull out your phone – rather rely on your math skills.

  1. Make it fun: Take math to a lower-stress setting with some math games! Games like Monopoly, Settlers of Catan, Sheriff of Nottingham, Ticket to Ride are great board games that incorporate some math. There are also several apps and video games made to develop math skills including Math Jumps, Mathmeter, Wuzzit Trouble, or King of Math, available on most phones and tablets. Online video games, especially ones that have currency and require puzzle-solving skills are also great. 

 

  1. Focus on understanding math, not memorizing it. How do you know 3 x 5 = 15? It is something you just have memorized, or do you think about the why behind it – that 3 groups of 5 (5 plus 5 plus 5 equals 15) or 5 groups of 3 (3 plus 3 plus 3 plus 3 plus 3 equals 15). When learning math, it's important to always think about the why behind problems and solutions and avoid rote memorization. If you’re struggling with understanding math, memorization can often be a useful coverup to get you by on a test. But because mathematical concepts build on one another, that’s not going to work in the long term. 

How can I improve my mathematical thinking? 

 

  1. Solve extra problems: Practice makes perfect, especially with math. And while textbook theory is a great supplementary resource, the only way to really improve at and understand math is to get in there and practice on real problems.  
  2. Use mental math whenever you can: Don’t get lazy and lose your math basics with a calculator. Whenever you can, practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in your head. If you’re worried about your mental maths skills, you can always double-check your answer on your phone or computer. This way, you’ll better remember key concepts, gain confidence, and get faster with math. 
  3. Teach math problems or concepts to someone else: The ultimate way to improve math (or any skill for that matter) – is to try teaching it to someone else. Only someone who truly understands what they are talking about (can communicate succinctly, answer any questions, get to the root of the issue) can teach it to another. Ask a friend or family if they’ll let you explain what you’re working on and how you’re doing it. 

How do you build confidence in problem-solving? 

  1. Face your weaknesses: Often, people get stuck on a certain aspect of a problem. While it’s tempting to try to just move on or skip the question, dig into what trips you up. Ask a teacher, friend, or tutor to walk you through that part and practice more questions of the same nature.
  2. Review every mistake. While there’s nothing more tempting than just never looking at a bad test again, every wrong answer presents a learning opportunity. It might be painful, but it’s essential to avoid repeating it in the future. After the teacher takes up problems in class or you get back a test, be courageous and take the time to figure out the thinking behind your mistakes and how you can do it correctly next time.
  3. Work in advance of class at your own pace. There’s nothing scarier than having to go up in class and solve a problem in front of the whole class. To help boost your confidence levels, you have to prepare and practice way ahead of time. Remove the pressure and practice at your own pace so you’re not put on the spot.

Does tutoring help with math? 

Yes! Whether you just need a few sessions leading up to a midterm or you’re looking for more consistent support throughout the semester, working with a tutor can be one of the best ways to finally understand and improve in math.  

 

With an online math tutor, you’ll get: 

 

  1. One-On-One Learning: In a typical school class, it’s often scary to put your hand up and ask questions. But if you don’t ask questions when you don’t understand, you run the risk of falling behind. Plus, it’s an unfortunate reality that teachers just don’t have enough time to ensure that every single one of their students understands each concept. With a private tutor, you get a more personalized teaching experience where you can walk through problems at your own independent pace. You only move onto the next problem once you completely understand. 
  2. Sessions Catered to You: Are you a visual learner? Auditory learner? Whatever your preferred learning style, a private tutor can cater their lessons to your unique needs where a teacher teaching a classroom of students cannot. Superprof tutors have experience working closely with many students over the years and can truly find the best way to help you learn. 

Support & Accountability: Having another human to hold you accountable is huge. If you just don’t feel like doing your homework, you’ll be a lot less likely to cancel if you already have a lesson with your private tutor scheduled.

What makes a great math tutor?

  1. Math Expertise & Knowledge - When you are looking for a math tutor, it is, of course, important to find a tutor who is an expert in math! Depending on what grade or skill level your student is, you want to be sure that the tutor you find is knowledgeable in that specific math area. At Superprof, you can read through the profile of each tutor to find their qualifications and experiences. 
  2. A Good Reputation - When you’ve found an online math tutor to work with, you want to be sure that they have a good reputation both online in general and as a tutor specifically. At Superprof, you can check out the reviews from past students and their education to vet each tutor. 
  3. Availability – Online tutoring provides an additional expectation of direct, and sometimes immediate, accessibility to your tutor, whether it’s time for a tutoring session or not. At Superprof, sessions are available both in-person in Halifax or online – whichever you prefer. Plus, our math tutors usually respond in under 3 hours. 

 

When you're trying to get better at math on your own and just can't grasp it, getting help will make a world of difference. And since math concepts build on one another, it’s essential to make sure you understand things at the beginning or it will only get worse.
