Written debrief and next steps
Meet a few of our 6th grade Math Tutors
"I absolutely love 6th grade because I always see so much growth from these students! 6th graders always seem ready to attack math in a way that allows them to think more deeply than ever before."
"It is awesome to see 6th graders light up when they realize math is just a game and once we understand the rules, they can do anything with numbers!"
"I love teaching 6th grade math because it is a year of diving deeper into the meaning of fractions and decimals and how they are used in real life scenarios."
"I love introducing expressions and simple equations to students in 6th grade. Equations are my favorite thing to teach and solve with my middle school students!"
Parents love online Math Tutoring
"We signed up for the free information session and got to meet one of the coaches, Tyler. Our son got to do a short session to see what it was like, and he immediately wanted more."
"We plan to continue with Prodigy coaching, for as long as our daughter continues to succeed with it. Who knows where it will take her! Our daughter said last week, 'I actually like math now! Prodigy has really changed my math-itude.'"
"The boys have developed a great rapport with their tutor and love the sessions. He even creates problems based on video game points! I am so grateful for our Prodigy tutor and the new joy my children have found in math."
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you tutor a 6th grader in math?
Your online Math Tutor will put together a personalized Learning Plan for your child that incorporates their learning style, data on their Prodigy Math Game progress and your feedback. Then, they'll guide your child through the skills within the 6th grade curriculum in an online interactive classroom, using the pace and learning method that matches their needs.
What curriculum do you cover for 6th grade students?
We cover the same 6th grade math material your child would see in school, adapted for their ability level and current progress on the topic.
What are your Tutors' certifications and backgrounds?
Prodigy Math Tutors are experienced math educators with classroom experience teaching multiple grade levels from 1st grade through to high school.
As a parent should I sit with my child for their sessions?
For the free session we would like to talk to parents and children together. For regular sessions your child is welcome to work on their own, with their Math Tutor. We recommend that parents or responsible adults are on-hand to set up the session and to help if required but you do not need to be with your child for the entire session.
How does your Prodigy game fit into this?
This is a learning experience offered by Prodigy Education that is informed by your child’s progress in our game. We leverage insights from the questions they’ve answered to prepare a personalized learning plan for your child to be used in tutoring sessions
What technical requirements are there for a session?
Prodigy Math Tutoring uses Zoom conferencing to facilitate our sessions. In order to have the best experience, you will need a stable connection to the internet. You can follow Zoom's hardware and software guidelines to help you set up your environment. We recommend a laptop, desktop or tablet for the best experience.
We ask that you please download and install the Zoom app before your session. We will provide you with links and instructions on how to do this.
Is your Tutoring platform safe and secure?
Do you offer multiple-session discounts?
Yes, if you decide to purchase 3 or more sessions we will extend a 20% discount. Regular sessions cost $30 USD and with this discount they are $24 USD. Speak to your tutor to learn more!
What are your late, refund or cancellation policies?
If you are late, the Math Tutor will wait for you in the online session for 15 minutes. If you do join late, please be aware that the session will still conclude at the scheduled time.
We are committed to providing the best tutoring for all students. When a customer cancels or misses a session without giving enough notice, it prevents us from working with another student. As such, we require 24-hour notice for any cancellations or changes to a session. Customers who provide less than 24-hour notice or miss their session will be charged in full for their scheduled session.
If you need to rebook your session please reschedule online or contact our customer support team. For free sessions, if you miss more than 2 sessions without providing 24 hours advance notice we will not be able to provide you with a free session in the future.
If you are not satisfied with your Prodigy Math Tutoring session, please reach out to our support team here.
