A student may struggle in math for a number of reasons, including the inability to:
- understand math concepts
- move from the concrete to the abstract
- remember basic math facts
- apply sequential steps
- keep up with the pace of classroom instruction
How We Teach Math at Syllables Learning Center
At Syllables Learning Center, we use the Orton-Gillingham multisensory cognitive approach to teaching math for grades K-5. Our hands-on techniques enable students to build their knowledge of abstract math functions. During one-on-one math tutoring, students use manipulatives to help them see, hear, and feel the way a problem needs to be solved. If the student struggles with number sense, we will start them with the most basic of concepts in order to provide a strong foundation. Our games and activities make math fun while building math fact accuracy and speed. The program proceeds in a structured, sequential way to fill in skill gaps while establishing mastery. The result: an independent, successful math student!
