Hello! I’m currently a college student at the University of Albany pursuing a degree in Pure Mathematics. I am able to teach comfortably up to Calculus thanks to years of tutoring experience. I also can help prepare for the math sections of the SAT or ACT! Any K-12 mathematics help, I can surely provide! I'm passionate about teaching the fundamentals and giving insight into the reasons mathematics is the way it is. I aim to not only improve grades and get work done, but provide a deeper understanding of the subject. I can help provide insight not only into the current upcoming year of math, but what future levels will have in store. I offer

Anonymous says, " I highly recommend vasudha! She was instrumental in my son's learning with algebra. She was very attentive to his needs, and the flexibility she offered within her schedule was really great for our family. She was great and we'd recommend her to anyone looking for tutoring services! Vasudha was great with my daughter and teaching her 7th grade math. My daughter struggles with attention deficit so Vasudha's strategies to help were amazing. She was great in all regards and was so friendly and easy to work with." Read more

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

Sahana was an amazing tutor! She helped my daughter get on the honor roll every quarter this year, and we saw immediate improvements in her grades since she started. Cannot recommend All Around Tutoring enough!!

I started taking Spanish lessons one year ago with Silvia Aguilar at LanguageConvo. I take a half hour lesson every Tuesday morning. after 52 half hour lessons (26 total hours) at a ridiculously low cost, I now am about 50 - 60% fluent, and I look forward to every Tuesday morning. Silvia is not only an excellent teacher... she is funny and lovely. We speak only Spanish about all things happening in our respective lives, cultures and even some politics. I would highly recommend LanguageConvo to anyone interested in learning a new language. Mucho gusta!

I really liked how hands on the tutor was. She was very attentive to my child and his needs. Her price was very reasonable and she always put in a lot of effort during the class and outside in prep work. I highly recommend her to anyone!
