    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.
  • Avatar Nicole May ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    I am going into my second year as a Themba tutor. I have met so many great individuals while working for this company. Craig and the rest of the Themba team do such an excellent job picking and choosing Themba tutors that suit each client's … More individual needs! I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Avatar Susan Wong ★★★★★ a year ago
    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible. Giulia put a ton of effort into preparing for each session and really helped our son with test preparation and projects. We are grateful that she was able … More to help, especially since our son did not receive any live teaching during COVID. We are happy that she was referred to us!
  • Avatar Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • Avatar Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Avatar Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

  • Avatar Fara Jones ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning. As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!
  • Avatar Frances Simpson ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    The tutors at Themba are fantastic! Caitlyn McNeill helped our son academically, but also with getting organized in every subject, which he so desperately needed.

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

5th-Grade Math Tutoring 

So what exactly do students learn in 5th-grade math? We broke down 5th-grade math into the following problems and topics, like breaking down a language into parts.

If you need checklists for a breakdown of 5th grade math, we highly recommend Khan Academy and IXL for Common Core Fifth-Grade Math Standards for fifth-grade standards . We also thank Embarc for breaking down 5th grade math into the following standards:

Module 1: Place Value and Decimal Fractions

Topic A: Multiplication and Division Patterns on the Place Value Chart

https://youtu.be/NA3al1U5mjg

When we multiply a decimal fraction by a power of  10, the result will be bigger than the original number, so we move to the left on the place value chart. How many times we move to the left depends on how big 10 is. When we multiply by 10, we move to the left by one. When we multiply by 100, we move two spots to the left. When we multiply by 1,000, we move three spots to the left, and so on.

Example: Record the digits of the first factor on the top row of the place value chart. Draw arrows to show how the value of each digit changes when you multiply or divide. Record the product on the second row of the place value chart.

a. 3.452 x 10 = 34.52 (34.52 is 10 times greater than 3.452)

5th grade math tutor

When a decimal fraction is divided by a power of 10, the result will be less than the original number. This means that we move to the right on the place value chart. The power of 10 tells us how often we move to the right. If we divide by 10, we move to the right by one place. When dividing by 100, we move two places to the right. When dividing by 1,000, we move three places to the right, and so on.

b. 345 ÷ 100 = 3.45 (3.45 is  times as large as 345.)

5th grade math tutor
Words to Know:

Thousandths – one of 1,000 equal parts; thousandth’s place (in decimal notation) the position of the third digit to the right of the decimal point

Hundredths – one of 100 equal parts; hundredth’s place (in decimal notation) the position of the second digit to the right of the decimal point

Tenths – one of 10 equal parts; tenth’s place (in decimal notation) is the position of the first digit to the right of the decimal point Place Value – the value of the place of a digit (0-9) in a number

Decimal Fraction – a fractional number with a denominator of 10 or a power of 10 (10, 100, 1,000). It can be written with a decimal point. Exponent – tells the number of times the base is multiplied by itself Example: 10- the 4 is the exponent and tells us the 10 (base) is multiplied 4 times (10 x 10 x 10 x 10)

Equation – statement that two mathematical expressions have the same value

Different Ways of Naming a Decimal Fraction

5th grade math tutor

Comparing Decimal Fractions
67.223 < 67.232

Strategy 1: Use a place value chart to compare the decimal fractions. A 5th grade math tutor can guide a student in comparing the decimal fractions.

The place value chart shows that 67.223 is less than 67.232 because the number 2 in the hundredth place of 67.223 is less than the number 3 in the hundredth place of 67.232.

5th grade math tutor

Strategy 2: Use the unit form to compare decimal fractions.
67.223 = 67 ones 223 thousandths
67.232 = 67 ones 232 thousandths
67 ones are the same, but 223 thousandths is less than 232 thousandths.

Things to Remember!

Decimal Fraction – A fractional number with a denominator of 10 or a power of 10 (10, 100, 1,000) that can be written with a decimal point.

Standard form – A number written with one digit for each place value. Example: 52.64 or 52

Expanded form – A way to write numbers that shows the place value of each digit.

Example: 52.64 = 5 x 10 + 2 x 1 + 6 x 0.1 + 4 x 0.01 or  5 x 10 + 2 x 1 + 6 x (1/10) + 4 x (1/100)

Unit form – A way to show how many of each size unit is in the number. 52.64 = 5 tens 2 ones 6 tenths 4 hundredths 52 ones 64 hundredths

Greater than symbol (>)

Less than symbol (<)

Rounding 1.57 to the nearest tenth

Step 1: Decompose 1.57 to show as many ones, tenths, and hundredths.

5th grade math tutor

Step 2: 

Draw a vertical number line. Since we are going to round to the nearest tenth,  we need to decide between which two-tenths  1.57 lies and indicate that on the vertical number line.

5th grade math tutor

Step 3: Determine the halfway point or midpoint between 15-tenths and 16-tenths.

5th grade math tutorStep 4: Locate 1.57 on the number line. We can see that 1.57 is past the midpoint, so 1.57 rounds to 16 tenths or 1.6.

Sample Problem:
For an open international competition, the throwing circle in the men’s shot put must have a diameter of 2.135 meters. Round this number to the nearest hundredth to estimate the diameter. Use a number line to show your work.

Topic D: Adding and Subtracting Decimals

When adding and subtracting decimals students can use place value charts to assist them with regrouping. When adding, students begin by representing each digit in the numbers by drawing a dot in the correct area on the place value chart. Next, they will regroup when there are 10 or more dots in one place.

Example: Represent the digits of the first and second addends on the place value chart. Regroup when there are ten or more in one place. Record the sum.

a. 18 tenths + 13 tenths = 31 tenths (Unit Form)
1.8 + 1.3 = _______

5th grade math tutor

b. 3.64 + 1.47 = ______

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

When subtracting students will represent the digits in the minuend on their place value chart. Next the student will subtract the subtrahend by crossing out the numbers in the chart. Students will need to regroup if necessary.

Example: 
83 tenths(minuend) –
64 tenths(subtrahend) = _____
8.3 – 6.4 = _____

Problem Solving:

Meyer has 0.64 GB of space remaining on his iPod. He wants to download a pedometer app (0.24 GB), a photo app (0.403 GB), and a math app (0.3 GB). Which combinations of apps can he download? Explain your thinking.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Meyer can’t download all three apps because he needs 0.943 GB of space and only has 0.64 GB of space. He can download the photo app alone, but he can’t combine it with anything. He does have enough space to download the pedometer and the math app together.

Words to Know:

Thousandths – one of 1,000 equal parts; thousandths place (in decimal notation) the position of the third digit to the right of the decimal point

Hundredths – one of 100 equal parts; hundredths place (in decimal notation) the position of the second digit to the right of the decimal point

Tenths – one of 10 equal parts; tenths place (in decimal notation) the position of the first digit to the right of the decimal point

Unit form – shows how many of each size unit are in the number. 52.64 = 5 tens 2 ones 6 tenths 4 hundredths = 52 ones 64 hundredth

Decimal Fraction – a fractional number with a denominator of 10 or a power of 10 (10, 100, 1,000). It can be written with a decimal point.

Addend – any number being added

Sum – answer to an addition problem

Difference – answer to a subtraction problem

Place value understanding of whole number multiplication using place value charts and area models, help students make a connection between whole number products and products of a one-digit whole number and the decimal fraction.

Problem: 0.423 x 4

Using Place Value Chart: Students know that 423 times 4 means 4 groups of 423; therefore, 0.423 times 4 means 4 groups of 0.423.


In the place value chart, we represent 0.423 four times since we need 4 groups of this decimal fraction. We will regroup when there are ten or more in one place.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Using Area Model: The unit form of each digit of the decimal fraction is written above the model, and the other number or factor is written along the side. Multiply the unit form of each digit along the top by the number on the side. Add each of the partial products to find the product.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Using Estimation

Estimation can be used to confirm that the decimal has the correct placement as well as determine the reasonableness of the product. Students usually want to work on the problem and then round the answer. That is an incorrect procedure to follow when estimating. We round first to give us an idea of the exact answer.5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

From the choices given below, which could be the exact product for the problem 2.5 x 5?

a.25 b.              b.125              c. 12.5

The answer would be the letter ‘c.’ 12.5 is close to 15, and it consists of a two-digit whole number.

Topic F:  Dividing Decimals

When dividing decimals students will use a place value chart to assist them.

Problem: 6.72 ÷ 3

Step 1: Draw a place value chart and  separate the bottom part into 3 groups  since we are taking the whole (6.72) and dividing it into 3 equal parts.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Step 2: Show 6.72 in the place value chart.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Step 3: Begin with the larger units, which in this problem is the one’s place. We can share 6 ones equally with 3 groups. There will be 2 ones in each group. Now we move to the tenths. We can share 7-tenths with 3 groups by giving each group 2-tenths, and then there will be 1-tenth left. The 1-tenth will be renamed as 10 hundredths. Now there are a total of 12 hundredths which can be shared with 3 groups by giving each group 4 hundredths.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors

Decimals can also be divided by breaking apart the dividend into unit forms. These parts can then be divided by the divisor and added together to find the quotient.

5th Grade Math Tutor - NYC Top Tutors
Words to Know:

Quotient – the answer to a division problem

Dividend (whole) – a quantity to be separated into the number of equal groups or into the amount in each group

Divisor – tells the size of the group or the number of groups the whole is being separated into
