Hello! My name is Caitlin Bussey, and I am a current college student. I have a completed Math minor, and have been tutoring students from Elementary-High School in Math for the past 5 years. My strengths are in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. My goal is to help students go past the plug and chug method to really understand the "how" of math, especially since assesments are leaning towards word problems that require practical applications of the techniques learned in class.

How do I know if my child needs a math tutor?

Your child may need a math tutor if:

  • 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?

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.

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.

Mrs. Johnson is the MOST AMAZING tutor for my 10-year old son. She not only taught him how to write in cursive (which they don't teach in schools much), but she worked with him on a variety of school subjects. His proficiency and comprehension improved, as did his grades. Mrs. Johnson is competent, patient, caring, innovative, creative, and structured. I give her my highest recommendation - and I know that my son does as well.
