I don’t have a business; however, it has always my dream to teach math and broke most kids mentality “but I hate math, I don’t understand it!.” I wanted to be a HS Calculous Math teacher, but I had unexpectedly had to move out of state. I only had 40 credits to finish too! But we have to be afable and roll with a buntch whatever our day bring us. That said, my goal is to not only tutor math but most importantly, your kid is going to at least have some kind of love for math without math I don't think the world would runs.

Hello to all! I have been a private tutor for over 33 years and tutor most general education subjects including three foreign languages (i.e., Spanish, Japanese, and Tagalog), but my forte is mathematics. With the many years of experiences that I have, I also have experience in working with students with varying disabilities. And the grade levels that I tutor in range from kindergarten through 12th as well as college, returning adults, and some graduate level tutoring (e.g., GRE prep).

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

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

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

What qualities make a good math tutor?

Look for the following qualities in a math tutor:

  • Expertise and knowledge on the subject
  • A good communicator and motivator

Mike showed me his support for the whole school year. There aren't many amazing tutors like him! I appreciate him having all the patience in the world for myself and all my questions! He's the best!

My daughter was nervous about tutoring, but Mr. G was fun and easy going - he definitely knows how to work with high schoolers. Throughout the year, he helped her understand some tricky Algebra 2 concepts, giving her the know-how and the confidence to do well in the class. He's personable, knowledgeable, and affordable - we'd give him 6 stars if we could!

Diego showed his skills as a tutor explaining a math theory to my son that he hardly understood before. Diego is so experienced, knowing that not everyone learns the same way, and he knew right away how to teach complex concepts so my son got them!

Lynn has been tutoring my son in geometry since the beginning of November 2020. He is in the 8th grade. My son was initially hesitant about working with a math tutor, since he never had one before, but after a couple of meetings, he grew comfortable with and enjoys working with Lynn. He says that she understands the material very well, but more importantly knows how to teach it so that he understands it as well. Prior to working with Lynn, he was very inconsistent on his exams, but since working with Lynn, he has been scoring As and Bs. Sometimes he and Lynn can cover material ahead of his class, so he feels less stress during class.
