About

I am a passionate, enthusiastic, and empathetic tutor with experience working with students from all backgrounds. As a former high school teacher, I am intimately familiar with the challenges presented by math and science classes, and I am determined to help others overcome these challenges. My tutoring style is instructive but entertaining, as my students will testify.

I love nothing more than seeing my students succeed, both in and out of school. My goal is to aid my students in achieving their educational and personal potential. And, of course, I wouldn't be a STEM tutor without a deep (and nerdy) love of mathematics.

    Caleb made math not only clear but fun! I’ve never had a math teacher like Caleb before and he made Algebra I very enjoyable and was great at answering my questions. My favorite year of math was learning it with him.

    He was one of the best teachers I have ever had! He made every day a fun experience and a great lesson! I have never understood math easier than I did when I was in his class. He’s also one of the nicest and friendliest teachers I have ever had! Can’t highly recommend enough!!!

    Our daughter took chemistry and physics classes with Caleb. He has proven himself to be an engaging communicator with a deep knowledge of the subject matter. Caleb made these subjects so accessible, interesting and enjoyable for our daughter that she would enthusiastically recount the things she learned and all the innovative ways in which Caleb explained challenging concepts. I highly recommend Caleb for anyone looking for instructional excellence.

    Caleb Shomaker taught me 11th-grade Chemistry and 12th-grade Physics. He was endlessly creative in lesson plans and always had a second explanation if the concept wasnt sitting right. Besides being one of the smartest people Ive met, he is a kind and patient teacher (even laughed at my dumbest puns!). He is well rounded, unique, dedicated, and I cannot recommend him enough!

    Frequently asked questions

    Tutoring is, more than anything, about the relationship between the tutor and the student. Therefore, I always begin with a new student by learning about their interests, experiences, challenges, and goals. The more I know, the better equipped I am to tailor my instruction to the individual needs of each student.

    I've studied, tutored, and taught mathematics (and science) for nearly ten years. I graduated with honors from New York University, with a 4.0 in mathematics, and afterward tutored SAT prep with private clients and classes. Additionally, I worked as a mathematics and physics teacher at the prestigious Fusion Academy for several years, where I continued to receive training as an educator and mentor.

    For in-person tutoring, I charge $50/hr for "standard" classes and $60/hr for AP or college-level classes. For remote, or virtual tutoring, I charge $40/hr for "standard" classes and $50/hr for AP or college-level classes. However, I fully understand that the needs, both educational and financial, of every student are different, and I am happy to discuss alternate rates if you feel they are warranted.

    I've enjoyed helping others learn since I was a teenager, but I never thought of myself as a teacher until college. As a theater student, I learned the importance of clear speech and mindful listening, which I discovered were the key characteristics of excellent teaching. My experiences as a performer, together with my passion for all things math and science, prepared me for an easy transition into the world of education and tutoring.

    First and foremost, know your own goals. What are you hoping to accomplish through tutoring? Do you want help completing homework? Prepping for a test? Achieving an A+? Or a combination of all three? It is helpful to define your goals as specifically as possible. And second, think about how a tutor can help you achieve that goal. Do you want a tutor who works through numerous examples with you or one who helps correct your work after the fact? Do you prefer visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learning? The more you know about your own needs, the more empowered you are.
