Inspiring Independence One Lesson at a Time

By the 2nd grade, your child is being asked to be more independent in math problem solving, including calculating with larger numbers. This is a big transition, so you’re right to want to give your child an extra hand. Our 2nd grade math tutors use fun, interactive lessons and adapt to your child’s math skills and pace — so your child stays challenged, not frustrated. We want to inspire a love of learning in your 2nd grader, so we make sure math tutoring stays fun.
