What are your rates?

My tutoring program is set up as a monthly subscription of  $300 per month. 

We will work once a week, so most months will have four lessons, some months will have five lessons. 

My credentials and experience have shown that this is a reasonable rate to charge. 

To be fully transparent, I retired from the factory-like system of a high school, but still love helping teens feel accomplished and empowered. 

Because of the amount of time I will spend preparing high quality, individualized lessons for your child, I only work with a few students at a time

The subscription will be set up on auto pay for convenience.  When your teen is ready to work on their own without me (which is always my goal as a teacher), just stop the subscription in the parent portal online.

Because I am also a bodybuilder and an online coach, I approach math tutoring a little differently – I am a personal trainer for mathematics!  

A less experienced tutor (or less experienced teacher) can tell someone the steps for how they would do a problem, but they may not be able to do it more than one way, may not be able to understand why your child doesn’t “get it”, and the tutor may become frustrated because they don’t have many tools in their teaching toolbox.  

A less experienced tutor will not be able to help a teen develop a growth mindset about what they are capable of doing.  Building confidence is crucial with someone who hasn’t had the same level of success in math that they have had in other areas.

While I will do homework support, parents work with me because they want more than that for their teen.

I’m a private, professional teacher that specializes in finding and closing learning gaps.

  • Decades of classroom experience
  • Years of continuing formal education
  • Evolved my practice based on current research about…
    •  learning styles
    • alternative teaching strategies
    • mathematical mindsets
  • Experience teaching all levels of math and working with all ability levels of students

 You need someone who can assess strengths, close learning gaps, and adapt to your student’s unique learning style

And you need that to happen with someone who is patient, kind, empathetic, and has a sense of humor.  (Not many adults choose to spend their lives teaching math to teenagers – it’s a niche.)

It’s important that we meet first and decide if I’m the right tutor for your teen.   After you complete this application, I’ll be in touch to set up a visit with you and your teen.  If I don’t have a spot open at that time, I’ll let you know. 

 

My calculus students used to called me their “Math Coach”.
