eTutorIcon's well-balanced Mathematics Online tutoring program for all students

An effective Mathematics Online Tutoring program balances three important components of mathematics conceptual understanding (making sense of mathematics), procedural proficiency (skills, facts, and procedures),and problem solving and mathematical processes (using mathematics to reason, think, and apply mathematical knowledge).These standards make clear the importance of all three of these components, purposefully interwoven to support students development as increasingly sophisticated mathematical thinkers. The standards of eTutorIcon's Mathematics Online Tutoring programs are to support the development of students so that they know and understand mathematics.

Mathematics and statistics tutors are available 24/7.
