Every once in a while we will be doing a student spotlight! This is where we ask one of our students some questions about themselves and their experience at Math Corner. This week our student spotlight is on Gillian!
Gillian is a senior at Northwest Career and Technical Academy. She has been coming to Math Corner for 1 year now. She first heard about the center from her friend Kristen. She is currently taking College Prep math. The thing Gillian loves the most about Math Corner is that she feels very confident on all her tests and quizzes. Gillian’s favorite subject in school is sports medicine, her favorite color is pink,and her favorite food is a cheeseburger. Gillian plans on attending University of Nevada, Reno in the Fall.
We hope you all have a wonderful Presidents’ Day weekend! We will be closed Sunday and Monday so our tutors have a chance to enjoy the holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday with our normal hours, 1:00 pm-8:30 pm.
Math Corner is a locally owned and operated tutoring center that was designed specifically to meet the needs of students in our area. We’re not a franchise with strict rigid rules, so we can tailor and adapt as students and standards change. Nevada is going through a complete overhaul of curriculum and testing and we will be ahead of the competition in adapting since we’re the closest to the action.
We give personalized attention to each student and develop a plan to achieve the individual student’s mathematical goals. Underperforming students often have several reasons and circumstances for mathematical deficiencies. Some of which cannot be discovered through a mere assessment and categorization. At Math Corner, we discover the needs of the student through math interaction. Questioning if a student can explain concepts or adequately follow a course of action to solve a problem are just a few ways the tutor can see where the student needs certain adjustment and offer supplemental practice.
We offer multiple services which were designed specifically to help with the issues Nevada students face in math. Some students just need a little clarification to tie up their understanding of specific topics. Other students continue to make errors on previous years material because they didn’t receive adequate practice when they learned it. We have designed specific sessions just for these students.
