Only 36% of American high schoolers about to enter college are prepared for the level of mathematics that they’ll find at a university, and these difficulties with math often begin at a young age. Because math is a subject which builds heavily on itself from one level to the next, children who fall behind in fundamental mathematics will only have a more difficult time with the subject moving forward.

For this reason, it’s critical for parents to be on the lookout for signs that their child is struggling with math. Your child may benefit from getting some extra help from a Math Tutor if you notice any of the following.

Plummeting grades

Math requires consistent mastery in new skills prior to proceeding to more difficult content, so falling behind can lead to a quick decrease in performance. If you notice a drop in your child’s grades, act sooner rather than later to help them get back up to speed.

Lack of enthusiasm

Math enthusiasm can be difficult to muster, even in students who are doing well—the abstract nature of math and the need for repetitive practice makes some kids dread the subject. 

However, this lack of enthusiasm may be telling you more than your child’s academic preferences. Children who can’t find it in them to care about math are usually the ones who are struggling the most or who will encounter problems with math later on.

Lost interest

It’s easy to lose interest in a subject that’s difficult, so a reluctance to complete math homework or lost desire to attend school at all maybe your child’s subtle way of saying, “This is too hard, so I don’t even want to try.” Often, children may not even recognize that their lack of interest is related to their academic difficulties, so it’s important for parents to keep an eye out and step in when necessary.

Struggles with numbers

If you notice your child struggling with basic calculations, or if the presence of numbers confuses and frustrates them, they’ll likely benefit from working with an Online Math Tutor.
