Students struggle in math and have gaps in their learning for a variety of reasons: lack of self-efficacy, challenges with focus and staying on task, mindset, problems processing information at the same rate as their peers, and inadequate practice to master concepts and skills. To succeed in math in higher grades, it is critical that students master lower-level math skills. At Evoke, our math programs give students the extra time to learn these important skills and concepts and address their learning deficits, bridging the gap for students who are behind in math and ensuring that the learning gap doesn’t widen.
Our math remediation program focuses on identifying and remediating academic gaps in math for students in Grades 3 through 12, promoting the development of mathematical reasoning, fostering understanding with less memorization, and helping students develop efficient strategies for solving problems.
The program begins with a diagnostic assessment. This assessment allows us to pinpoint the specific concepts and curriculum expectations with which the student is struggling. The information also helps to guide our tutors so that they may effectively and efficiently bring the student up to grade level. Math is like a hierarchy, and having a solid understanding of current grade concepts will assist the student in navigating the curriculum in their next grade. The tutor will focus on re-teaching the most critical concepts.
For students struggling to understand current grade-level mathematical concepts, Evoke’s tutoring program identifies knowledge gaps and re-teaches skills and material that the student may have missed, in addition to supporting them in their current grade level. We assist students with the completion of math assignments, and prepare them for upcoming tests and exams.
