EIGHTH GRADE MATH TUTORING
8th grade math concepts and equations become even more advanced and if students don’t master them, they will struggle in high school.
In every math class, some students struggle to keep up without additional opportunities to practice and learn math skills.
Give these students the support they need to succeed in grade-level math and beyond with a regular one-on-one math tutoring program built and delivered by math specialists.
Third Space Learning provides one to one for a good value price. Students enjoy working with their private tutors – they describe them as lovely, friendly and helpful. The math topics are appropriate and fits with our curriculum.

Before 8th graders start high school, it’s essential to ensure they are confident with grade-level math concepts and math skills so they do not fall behind.
Enroling 8th graders in a math tutoring program provides the math help target students need to accelerate progress before the achievement gap widens in high school.
8th graders need to develop their problem solving skills and understanding of more complex word problems ahead of state test prep.
An online 8th grade math tutor provides extra math opportunities for 8th graders struggling to keep up with difficult math tests and math concepts.
Often, eighth grade students benefit from different teaching styles but differentiating instruction for a whole class can be challenging.
Each student works one-on-one with a private tutor at their own pace and tutoring sessions are adapted in real-time according to the student’s needs.
A team of expert math teachers creates all math lessons covering the 8th grade standards for every US state and Common Core.

How can I help my 8th grader with math?
To help your 8th grader achieve better grades in math, focus on their understanding of algebraic concepts, geometry and functions. Engage them with practical applications, reasoning and problem-solving exercises. Consider using online resources or an expert tutor to help with math homework and provide additional practice and guidance.
What math class should 8th graders be in?
Eighth graders are typically enrolled in pre-algebra ahead of algebra 1 or algebra 2 in high school, focusing on algebraic concepts, problem-solving skills and introducing more advanced topics like linear equations, functions, and basic geometry. The exact math class may vary based on the school’s curriculum and the student’s proficiency, but all classes should aim to prepare them for high school mathematics.
What are kids learning in 8th grade math?
In 8th grade math, students learn key algebraic concepts such as solving linear equations and inequalities, exploring functions and their graphs, and understanding the properties of exponents. They also study geometry, covering topics like the Pythagorean theorem, volume, and surface area of geometric figures and begin to explore concepts of statistics and probability to analyze data. This school year should prepare students for high school math courses.
