Math and science tutoring for your children is the best investment you’ll ever make. Why? Because the world is moving faster and faster towards jobs that require a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education. Perhaps in the future, the majority of well-paying jobs available will be reserved for those students who understand math, science, and technology.
Your kids are your most important asset. You invest (over the course of their lifetimes) millions of dollars in your children.
Math and Science Tutoring Can Help Your Child Earn $20,000 – $30,000 More in Salary after College
The NY Times reports that Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics bachelors degrees earn an average of $55,000 to $65,000 starting salary after college. Social sciences earn an average of $45,000.
Some reports showed that the average starting salary for engineering was $73,700. This is compared to a humanities degree which earns $43,100.
The bottom line is that humanities and social sciences are no longer the most valued degrees. The world has a shortage of STEM graduates. And if you want your child to be on the cutting edge, they need to know mathematics and science.
Math and Science Tutoring Teaches Your Child Transferable Skills
Having strong technical skills is a benefit at most any job. When you know how to code, or you have the mathematical capability to analyze a balance sheet, you are going to earn the position over the candidate sitting beside you.
STEM education prepares you to be a doctor, or a scientist. These are meaningful jobs that will provide your family with status and security.
Math and Science Tutoring Prepares your Child for a Job
Every year 3.2 million jobs in STEM aren’t filled. We simply don’t have enough qualified people to work these positions. The great thing about having a STEM education is that you have options. You can decide whether you want to be a doctor, scientist, computer scientist, or you can even become a writer, or lawyer, or teacher.
That’s why at Tutor Portland we are so proud to focus on math and science tutoring for high school students. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your child’s education.
