For any child.
5th and 6th graders want more online math challenge and enrichment, or are bored with grade level curriculum that is moving an entire class at once. Or maybe the child wants to work with math that has them thinking more critically and develop skills that are more practical for life. Often times this request comes from the parents, which is completely understandable.
As parents, we know what our children will encounter as they get older, and the skills and habits they will need to be able to choose any career path that matches their passion and drive.
Hoffkids Online Math Tutoring Enrichment is a math program that I created and have refined through thousands of hours, and used very successfully for the last 7 years with my 6th graders in the classroom, as well as those I have tutored online. The program has helped multiple students get into accelerated (advanced) math for their next year, and is never short on fun and challenge.
that I developed surrounds your child with math problems which are non-routine situations requiring higher order thinking skills. To work successfully, the student should be (or working towards becoming) self-motivated and enjoys meaningful problem-solving as opposed to just learning a skill and applying it to similar questions like most math work in class.
I teach the needed problem solving strategies, and the child’s results will include building confidence and independence, risk taking not commonly found in regular classrooms, and all while being challenging without frustration.
The hand selected math problems
differ from our normal 6th grade math curriculum in that the questions and work they put in help develop 5 major thinking areas.
5 major thinking areas
combined with bonus life skills
is worth either $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, or $4,000 to represent the level of difficulty. $1,000 is easiest, while $4,000 questions are much more challenging and reward the student with more “money.”
In many cases, a running total dollar amount earned from the student takes place, and certain special “achievement levels” are set. With these accomplishments come possible rewards and the student may be working towards some meaningful prize/reward.
All math problems are in digital format and hw between sessions can easily be assigned for additional brain burn and learning.
