Kids in 4th grade should be working on mastering mental math. They should have a solid foundation on working with whole numbers. This is also the year when students work on creating equations from multiple paragraph word problems.
our Elementary math program
Elementary school math is a time when students are building fundamental skills. It’s important that kiddos start to develop their mental math skills. We want them to have a good grasp of multiplication tables, whole numbers, and dividing.
We think, though, that one of the most important lessons that elementary school math teachers & tutors can instill in kids is that math is about more than number and multiplying—math is a beautifully creative field that is based in concepts and creative thinking. It is so important to think about the deep concepts in mathematics and how they relate to the real world.
It’s never too early
At Math Tutor Denver, we are always so grateful to see parents reaching out to us for advice when their kiddos are so young. Starting early is the best time!
When you hire a math tutor early on, your kid is going to learn to love math from an early age. They will understand it. Math will make sense to them and it will be more fun. Usually, starting early also means that kids are more likely to develop a sense of math as an interesting and creative field, where deep thought and reflection matters.
Starting early also helps to build a strong relationship between the tutor and student—one that they can hopefully keep for many years to come. And even if they stop tutoring, your kiddo might be able to email the tutor and ask questions.

set the foundation
Hiring a math tutor for your elementary school student will help set the foundation for future success. Our co-founder, Eric M Earle, fell behind really early on in math. He never developed an interest in math or an appreciation of the conceptual side.
By the time he was in middle school, his only hope was copying off his friend’s work. This set him further and further behind—as other students gained valuable skills and knowledge, Eric merely treaded water. Eric eventually mastered mathematics, with the help of a great tutor, when he was 25 years old! But, he realizes now what a dramatic difference a thoughtful tutor could have had on him back in elementary school. It would have changed the entire course of his life!
