Why get a Toronto math tutor?
Well, math is one of those subjects that many kids find hard. The truth is, it’s not so much that it’s hard, but that it’s not as ‘free form’ as subjects like English, where creativity and imagination rule.
With mathematics, controlled logic and reason start small, and then snowball into complex formulas. This requires attention, and tough thinking skills. It’s not a ‘do whatever you think is best’ or a ‘nice try’ kind of subject. The answers are predictable, and a student has to learn how to get to that answer, using controlled sequences.
Believe it or not, this type of thinking is needed in many careers. But it’s not always something that ‘comes naturally’ to a child. And in-class explanations can only go so far. That’s why getting a math tutor can help.

A math tutor can help if your child wants more career options:
When your child was little and perhaps said they wanted to be an astronaut, or a pilot or doctor, they may not have realized that those would be subjects requiring a thorough understanding of math concepts, even if they don’t require math degrees. While not everyone wants to invent some new way of calculating the universe, math is still an essential subject for the following types of careers:
- Health sciences (being a doctor, veterinarian, nurse, dentist, physical therapist all need math to understand the science at hand).
- Engineering (from civil engineering, biochemical engineering, mechanical engineering and more – good math skills are essential).
- Architecture (buildings are symmetrical and carefully calculated, and that has to do with learning math!).
- Computing (working on the next iPhone, programming code for Google, and many other ‘cool tech’ jobs are out of the question without math).
- Commerce and business (from accounting and finance, to understanding insurance rates and real estate markets, math is used daily in this career path).
- Music (all those notes and sounds are based on fractions and patterns, you know!).
- Construction and trades (the people who use geometry and fractions to make beautiful structures are excellent at math, because they have to be – many trade skills would not be possible without math).
- Design (from symmetry to the Golden spiral, math is essential to things looking ‘beautiful,’ and all good designers know this, whether designing rooms, furniture, brochures or websites).
The above career choices are hard to make your way into without having good grades in math at an earlier age.
Good grades in high school math are needed for Ontario university applications: a math tutor can help
Taking a look at some sample university requirements that Toronto students will face when applying for undergraduate studies can demonstrate this.
You can check, for instance, that the University of Waterloo, University of Guelph and Carleton University require not just math for many bachelor programs, but advanced mathematical subjects like calculus and vectors, or advanced functions. These are subjects that require foundations in basic mathematics in early grades in order to be successful later on.
Getting low scores on these high school courses can also reflect how well a student does on a university application. Ryerson University, for example, has undergraduate programs that are based on grades alone. Dalhousie University lists many programs that require math, mentioning that at least 70% is required in these subject to enter the university.
If your child is falling behind in math, it’s not wise to wait until grade 11 or 12 to hire a math tutor in Toronto. By then, math concepts will be too tough to absorb. This is because math builds on prior foundations. You can’t just ‘jump into it’ late in the game. It’s the same way you can’t read novels without knowing your A-B-Cs first.
Math skills are essential to everyday life, even if your career doesn’t require it
Without knowing it, as adults, we use mathematical logic and vocabulary every day. It’s a skill we have to use to complete basic tasks like grocery shopping, navigating around the ‘block,’ noticing patterns or understanding time. It even helps you make good decisions, as this Huffington Post article explains.
This is a great article that explains how math is not just a subject that teaches you how to think. It’s essential to all humans functioning in this world. Math is also what allows us to understand ideas. For example, it helps understand the concept of things that may not even exist, like a vacuum. Or something that is less than zero, creating a negative, or a void. How can that be? If we can understand it with math, we can understand it in life.
In short, it is human to know mathematics. If your child is struggling with math, a math tutor is a good idea, even if they know they want to be an artist (which still requires math, by the way).
