Social distancing guidelines have had a major impact on different levels of education whether that’s high school math, middle school, or elementary math.
First, schools are closed, or open, or closed but open two days a week, or open but ready to close within 24 hours.
It’s unclear in some states whether it’s for a few weeks or the rest of the school year. ( Bill Gates shared that it’s likely not until fall 2021 that Americans “can be completely safe” from COVID-19). And switching to distance learning likely hasn’t been the easiest change for your family!
Second, learning centers and in-person tutors are no longer an option.
To have both these options unavailable right now for your child might feel overwhelming,
(Hey, we get it! Switching to distance learning/schooling from home isn’t easy. In math class, in particular, problem-solving methods and strategies are totally different compared to how you learned them back in the day. You might not even be equipped to help your student. Plus, your child might not respond too well to you being their new teacher!)
School and tutoring center closures don’t mean that the learning needs to stop! Your child shouldn’t struggle with math or let their math skills slide.
An online math tutor is actually the perfect option and resource for your family. Not just during social distancing, but even all year round!
Use Instacart or Grubhub.
Need a movie to watch with the kids?
Use Netflix or other streaming apps.
Need a tutor?
Well, just grab the computer or a tablet!
Online companies and tools have completely transformed the way that we receive services and goods.
And online math tutoring is a growing and increasingly popular service too.
Because your child gets to connect with a tutor and get a tutoring session right from the comfort of home.
This is one of the reasons parents come to Thinkster Math – convenience ! They want a high-quality, affordable, and credible math tutor, without having to leave the house. And without losing money for planned sessions you couldn’t physically be present for due to other activities.
Plus, you can determine the day and time that works best for your child to connect with their tutor.
And now, during social distancing, online math tutoring truly is the perfect opportunity for your child to still get math support.
(That is, math support from someone other than yourself!) Your student’s math teacher will welcome the extra help.
Online math tutoring programs are highly convenient and the perfect option during social distancing.

How has your child been settling into distance learning or learning from home?
For many kids and families, it’s not a smooth or easy transition.
If you find yourself pulling your hair out, don’t worry! This is totally normal!
Kids are used to the routine and structure that their school teachers and classrooms provide.
But moving to distance learning at home? The learning experience and routine is completely different and a big change.
Your child needs to adopt a disciplined approach to learning to help bring a little more normalcy to their routine.
Our Thinkster private tutoring can provide more structure and organization to your child’s learning.
In fact, organization skills are something that our tutors consistently work on building in all of their students! These are critical life skills that will benefit your student for the rest of their lives.
They do so by setting expectations with student learning plans. They also help improve time management and prioritization skills. It helps your child compartmentalize so that they work smartly and efficiently. Imagine your child going off to college with these skills already in place.

A disciplined approach to learning helps your child establish a clear routine and segment their days and time carefully.
Now that they are schooling from home, this is incredibly important to help provide stability.
