The jump between 5th grade math and middle school math can be challenging for many 6th graders.
Starting online math tutoring program for 6th graders helps reinforce math concepts they will need to keep up throughout middle and high school.
6th graders are building on their elementary math skills, tackling more complex problem-solving and harder word problems.
One-on-one online math tutoring sessions provide extra opportunities for sixth grade students struggling to keep up with the pace of the middle school math curriculum.
Often, 6th grade math students benefit from different teaching styles but differentiating instruction for a whole math class can be challenging.
Each student works one-on-one with a private tutor who adapts instructions and math curriculum content in real-time according to the student’s needs.
All math lesson plans are created by a team of math teachers and cover the 6th grade math curriculum for every US state and Common Core.

How can I help my 6th grader with math?
To help your 6th grader with math, practice the four operations with fractions, decimals, percentages, order of operations as well as basic algebraic concepts. Utilize interactive tools and show more real-life examples to help support your 6th grader in developing problem-solving strategies for more complex equations and word problems.
What math is typically taught in 6th grade?
In 6th grade, math typically focuses on deepening understanding of fractions, decimals, and percentages, introducing ratios and proportions, basic algebraic concepts such as expressions and equations and geometry including area, surface area, and volume. Additionally, students work on enhancing their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills to more complex mathematical scenarios.
What math level should a 6th grader be?
By the end of 6th grade, students should be comfortable with arithmetic operations including fractions, decimals, and percentages, have an understanding of algebraic expressions and simple equations and be familiar with basic geometry concepts like area, volume, and surface area. They should also be able to apply these skills to solve real-world problems and understand the basics of data representation and analysis ahead of 7th grade math.
