When will mathease reopen its physical location?
We are following the state and the CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We expect to reopen our doors at the same time or shortly after students return to school.
My student and I live out of state, will i be able to continue learning with mathease when in-person sessions restart?
Of course. We have always offered virtual sessions to our students who couldn't make it in-person. We've helped students nationwide and in countries as far away as Austria and Greece. Your sessions can continue no matter where you are.
My student's school is closed and they don't have any homework, do they really still need tutoring?
For the vast majority of students, the answer is yes. The purpose of an education is not just to receive good grades, it is to learn. With the uncertainty presented by the coronavirus, there is a good chance schools will not reopen in time to finish the full class curriculum. Students would then be half a year behind in their education and possibly even further behind because students forget many things during a long break. To stay on track, students should continue learning this year's material as much as possible. Additionally, this is an excellent time for students who are struggling or behind to get caught up and even ahead at their own pace. We here at Mathease are in a unique situation to help our students as we have a vast archive of material to draw upon that matches what they would be doing at school and our tutors know how to actually teach it. This allows students to progress as much or more than they would in school.
My student's school is continuing virtually, how do I share their school material with their tutor?
We can do it several ways depending on the platform your student's school is using. If your are comfortable sharing the login information, the tutors can access it the same way you would. If that is not an option, you and your student can send PDFs or images to the tutor before or during your session. Tutors can upload problems to a virtual whiteboard where both student and tutor can write, take notes, and generally work on the problems collaboratively. The screen sharing option on Skype also works very well for our online learners with unique platforms.
I am concerned that my student won't learn as well as they do in person. What does mathease do to preserve the in-person experience during virtual sessions?
The Mathease style is above all interactive. We have always discussed material with the student, leading the student through questioning, not lecturing. This allows our tutors to more effortlessly transfer to a digital space where talking at students is the biggest faux pas an educator can make. With the combination of video calling and a two sided real-time whiteboard, tutors are able to explain and engage students like they would in-person. They are also able to collaboratively work with students on problems and assign practice that they can watch students attempt allowing them to help student immediately when they err. There are really very few differences between an in-person session and a virtual one, except the occasional guest appearance of the family cat!
Our Custom 1-on-1 Sessions are designed to meet the needs of each individual student. We teach students so they actually understand the material, reinforce foundational concepts, and build confidence.
