I'm Savannah, by the way! Fun fact about me: Send me a TikTok and we can be great buddies, just so you know! Educating students is my favorite job. When a student "clicks" with a new topic, it makes tutoring that much more satisfying for me since their enthusiasm is contagious. It is an honor to be able to assist them in getting to that point. I am a nice, patient, and amiable sort of person, to put it more personally. I partner with SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring company, I work one-on-one with students to prepare for the SAT and ACT. I am a Vanderbilt University alumnus who earned a degree in computer science, performed at the top of my class o

Kangsoo Y. says, "We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them" Read more

Shamith S. says, "Miss. Mei has been working with us for some weeks now, and Im already seeing big positive changes in my child and I requested her if I could leave her a review. Miss. Mei’s way of interacting with kids, her preparations for every class, her ongoing discussions with parents and her background being an experienced DOE teacher were some of the things that I really liked. She has great strategies. We work together as a team. My child loves her classes and always looks forward to it. Ms. Mei is very encouraging and has a positive outlook. She is sensitive to the overall needs of a child and plans her lessons accordingly. She even took the initiative of collaborating with the school teachers for maximal outcome. I’m very glad that I got in touch with Ms. Mei. I was looking for tutors online and feel very lucky to have found her. A Right teacher at the right time. My best wishes to Miss. Mei." Read more

Your Math Tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

How much does a math tutor cost near me?

A math tutor costs $25 to $80 per hour when teaching privately and $25 to $50 per hour when tutoring online. SAT math tutoring costs $45 to $100 per hour on average. Math tutoring centers charge $100 to $200 per month for weekly tutoring sessions.

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
  • A passionate and enthusiastic teacher
  • Ability to quickly identify the student's needs
  • Teaches to the student's strengths and minimizes their weaknesses
  • Personalizes each session and incorporates connections to the student's interests
  • Listens and communicates often with parents and teachers

Do math tutors help?

Hiring a math tutor helps struggling children keep up and advances those students who aren't challenged enough. A tutor helps improve any student's knowledge, learning skills, and confidence.

Is math tutoring worth it?

Tutoring is worth the money because:

  • Tutoring strengthens subject comprehension, boosts confidence, and builds important learning skills that a crowded classroom can't offer.
  • Tutoring improves grades and tutored students outperform their peers on examinations.
  • Students develop positive attitudes toward the subject after tutoring.

How to find a math tutor in my area?

Reviews for Yonkers math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Yonkers area.
Chloe T.
Kourosh has been an absolute game-changer for my daughter's middle school math journey. Initially, I was hesitant about online tutoring, especially considering my daughter's learning challenges, but Kourosh proved me wrong from the get-go. Despite my daughter's struggles with dyslexia, Kourosh tailored his teaching approach to suit her unique needs flawlessly. He engages her in one-on-one sessions, leveraging her preferred learning methodt of reading aloud. This individualized attention would have been nearly impossible in a traditional classroom setting. Kourosh not only teaches the material effectively but also ensures that my daughter retains and comprehends it thoroughly. His method of initiating note-taking reinforces key concepts and helps solidifies her understanding. In just one hour with Kourosh, my daughter learns more than she did in an entire month of class. I highly recommend Lila Tutoring. Kourosh gets 5 stars.

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.

My son’s sessions with SoFlo are excellent and efficient. The tutor quickly developed a good rapport with my son and got a lot of work done in one hour. I have been using them for 3 months and plan to use SoFlo for the whole school year

Gifted Genius Prep is an amazing company I highly recommend! My children have been tutoring with this company starting the beginning of the school year and I see them flourishing in learning a new language. They are professional and provide stellar learning experience for children. Again, I highly recommend using their services for language or test preparation. Thank you Mei for providing excellent educational services especially during these stressful situations. Gifted Genius Prep is one of the best learning companies because it’s fueled with people who care about children and learning. I promise you will receive an excellent virtual or in person experience with Gifted Genius.
