## Math Tutoring Programs

While we have experts on our team that can help with almost any K-12 math course, some of our most commonly requested courses are described below. We also regularly work with families to create math enrichment programs for students that are ahead of their classmates and “catch up” programs for students that have gaps from earlier math courses. Our math enrichment programs often focus on a combination of advanced math topics and real world applications. For example, previous math enrichment programs have included a focus on currency exchange rates for a student moving to Europe, managing a professional basketball team for a sports fan, and creating a horse training business for a horseback riding enthusiast.

### Elementary School Math Tutoring

Denver Test Prep tutors provide students in all elementary grade levels with math concept support and instruction. This includes concepts taught in younger grade levels such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and factoring. Our elementary math tutors also help students to tackle more advanced topics such as decimals, percents, basic algebra, and geometry.

## Why do I need to learn math?

Math is a critical skill and focus of study for many college majors. Students who master mathematics concepts in high school and score well in math sections on standardized exams are more likely to be accepted into their university of choice and be successful in certain majors and courses of study.

College graduates with advanced math skills also have higher paying job opportunities available to them. For example, professionals in careers that require higher education math skills include pilots, engineers (aerospace, chemical, electrical, marine, mechanical, nuclear, etc), medical physicians, surgeons, pharmacists, economists, programmers, federal judges, attorneys, stockbrokers, and senior corporate executives.

Not interested in these careers? Math skills are still essential in everyday life. For example, people use math to calculate appropriate tips at restaurants and to determine the economics of buying versus leasing a vehicle. People with strong math skills typically do better financially throughout their lives because they tend to make stronger investment and savings decisions. Math skills are also critical when buying a home and determining mortgage rate and down payment options, as well as inflation history and risks.
