Kindergarten and elementary school years (grades 1-7) are significant times during a child’s educational development. Children are naturally curious and want to make sense of things around them. It is important for children to acquire a strong foundation in math, reading and writing to properly prepare them for high school. At BASIRI Tutoring, we place a significant emphasis on children’s mental math skills as well as basic reading and writing skills. Our tutors routinely assess their students’ academic abilities to ensure content knowledge has been learned. We approach grade 1-7 lessons without the use of calculators and autocorrect spell checks, and encourage students to learn through routing practice, repetition and critical thinking.
For math tutorials, BASIRI tutors teach using resources, such as Jump Math, Singapore Math or worksheets. Through an inquiry based and test-based tutoring approach, BASIRI tutors help their students gain a strong foundation in the following topics:
