I am Genevieve Gravesande who is a license grade 7 - 12 mathematics teacher by the state of New York with 20+ years teachingexperience. I am enthusiastic to be your math mate. I am eager and love to teach mathematics to young scholars. The scholars in my target group are grades 5 to 9. When I teach scholars I am student-centered because I need the scholars to understand and apply their learning in a variety of ways. In my tutorials I encourage scholar discussion and provide hands-on examples. I provide feedback to parents and scholars frequently to ensure their goal are achieved.

I work at building strong, positive relationships. This is key to my students and I having a shared understanding of each other's teaching/learning style, and to adapting when or wherever necessary. I enjoy seeing the results - students' mastery of the content, academic success, and their personal appreciation.

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

Reviews for Stamford math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Stamford area.
Michael R.
TutorsPro is a life savor! There are so many positives! First, their tutors are very flexible with their time. There are numerous occasions where I need more time to work with my tutor or I have a conflict with a session, but the tutors always work with my schedule to make sure I never feel behind in class. They are willing to sacrifice extra time out of their life to make room for students to make sure they feel comfortable in any subject. Additionally, they are very easy to communicate with. I have never had a problem where we are not on the same page with session times. They are very happy to communicate with us and they always make sure there is room for a session. Lastly, most importantly, they always teach in a way where all students can understand. My grades would significantly be lower without a tutor in TutorsPro. I highly recommend TutorsPro if students want to be successful in a specific class.

Lissy is such an amazing tutor, she has helped both my sister and myself improve our math grades. She is always willing to go above and beyond for us. She gives various methods to use in the subject you are having trouble with. She is very sweet, helpful and a patient tutor that focuses hard on improving your poor area. We have been working with Lissy for 5 years and don’t know what we would have done without her.
