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?

Reviews for Gaithersburg math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Gaithersburg area.
Lynne L.
Maureen is an excellent tutor. We were fortunate that she was able to tutor all three of our kids - over a span of 8 years on both the SSAT and SAT. After working with Maureen, each of our children did significantly better on the standardized tests. A very experienced tutor, Maureen is smart, organized, creative and really seems to love working with kids - and they love working with her. She created a comfortable and supportive learning environment for each of our kids. By teaching them techniques and strategies in such a clear and effective way, Maureen helped them to stay focused and not overwhelmed. She boosted their confidence and, subsequently, helped them boost their test scores. Over the years, we have been so grateful for Maureen's kindness, patience, encouragement and enthusiasm as she helped our children navigate the standardized tests. Needless to say, you really can't get a better tutor than Maureen. I absolutely recommend her!
