Math Talk

Learning to talk math

Understanding mathematical vocabulary can be very similar to learning a second language for some students and additional support may be necessary.

Through one-on-one tutoring, students are exposed to extra mathematical language practice with STEM specialist tutors.

Welcoming math language through math talk

When students discuss their mathematical thinking, they are more likely to learn. But students lacking confidence can be reluctant to use math language.

Working one-on-one with the same STEM specialist tutor each week builds students’ confidence and provides a safe environment to articulate ideas and develop mathematical understanding.

Developing math fluency through discussion

Students need frequent exposure to math language to become both fluent and proficient in math.

Customized tutoring schedules, with options for low or high dosage math tutoring, accelerate students’ math progress through personalized one-on-one math talk sessions.

Promoting critical thinking

Math goes beyond finding the right answer — students must explain their reasoning, process and methodology to demonstrate understanding.

Regular one-on-one math tutoring provides students with ample time to cultivate their reasoning and critical thinking skills, guided by tutors who know how to pose the right questions.
