## Making Fractions Practical and Fun

Fractions seem easy to explain ... until they’re not! Fractions begin in the practical world, where they’re fun (and delicious) to describe using pizza slice analogies. But once factors and multiples begin, explaining how to add and subtract mixed numbers can become a challenge.

Our math tutors pick up where you leave off, making sure your child feels confident with fractions in and out of the classroom. Through our fractions tutoring program, we combine personal attention with great digital tools (such as iPads® and a virtual rewards system), so learning fractions is engaging and fun.
