Adare B. says, ""I could write a lot more about how much we appreciate his work with Riley, but I'm trying to be succinct. Adare has been such a great tutor for our high school student. He takes the time to find where academic support is most needed, and is both professional and friendly in his interactions.

  • They are excelling in school and need more challenging tasks
  • You are no longer able to provide help with homework or learning
  • They have a learning disability

How many math tutoring sessions are needed?

Sometimes, a few tutoring sessions can help students get back on track and regain confidence. If the student struggles in two or more classes, more sessions are recommended. On average, students take 9 to 50 sessions.

What do private math tutors do?

Math tutors are responsible for helping students with homework, teaching various mathematical concepts, motivating and boosting confidence, and teaching skills like note-taking, studying, and test-taking.
