Hi! I am a biochemistry major at the University of Arkansas! Math was always my favorite subject, so I began early and took college math classes before graduating from high school! I am here to help YOU! I believe there is no right way to teach math. It is only the way that is the easiest for you! Together, we'll be able to get through any hard problem that comes our way!

I have a knack for explaining things in a way that is maybe not as technical. I also can explain concepts in a variety of ways using any method the helps the student.
I love seeing the light bulb go off when a student finally gets a skill mastered. I love to teach how math is not always perfect and learning happens when we actually make mistakes and figure out how to find and correct the mistake. I love using unorthodoxed methods like writing on windows and using iPads with a digital notebook to work out math problems. But most of all I LOVE when a student starts to finally BELIEVE in themselvs and realize they CAN do math....

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

A math tutor costs **$25 to $80 per hour** when teaching privately and **$25 to $50 per hour** when tutoring online. SAT math tutoring costs **$45 to $100 per hour **on average. Math tutoring centers charge **$100 to $200 per month** for weekly tutoring sessions.

Your child may need a math tutor if:

- Their grades or test scores are declining
- They get confused or frustrated with homework
- They are having difficulty or lacking confidence with numbers
- 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

Tutors suggest a minimum of **one tutoring session per week** until students build confidence, understand the subject, and improve grades. 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**.

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. Math tutors also show how to perform calculations, processes, and computations to complete their assignments.

Look for the following qualities in a math tutor:

- Expertise and knowledge on the subject

Hiring a math tutor helps struggling children keep up and advances those students who aren't challenged enough. A tutor helps improve any student's knowledge, learning skills, and confidence.

Tutoring is worth the money because:

- Tutoring improves grades and tutored students outperform their peers on examinations.
- Students develop positive attitudes toward the subject after tutoring.

I could not say enough about Ganesh Susarla. Besides being a wonderful mathematician, he is a truly gifted tutor. Some people know their subjects, but not everyone can teach. Like other tutors we have met through Tutorfly, Ganesh is really a very good teacher. His kind, compassionate, patient, and thorough approach to his subject has given my son the confidence in his math class that he needs to know that he is in control. He now sees himself a a math guy, which is a wonderful turn of events. Another point I'd like to make about Ganesh is that he is so polite and friendly- very easy to talk to and comfortable in his own skin. Our whole family enjoys talking to Ganesh when he's at our house. What a great guy!
