General Pricing

  • $35.00 an hour if I come to your location
  • $30.00 an hour if student comes to my home

I accept cash or check, but I prefer to receive payment online via my business PayPal account. You do not need your own PayPal account to pay me online.

Tutoring agencies and online tutoring sites advice parents to expect to pay up to $75 per hour for a certified teacher with experience. I determined my rate in order to remain affordable while still receiving adequate compensation of my time. 

*Note: My prices are subject to change; however, once you sign a contract, you are locked into the rate listed in your contract, and you will be unaffected by any increase in my listed pay rate.

Tutoring Sessions

I guide students in 6th/7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I, helping them navigate their way to a brighter future. 

Steps:

  1. Schedule an initial meet and greet meeting. (If the student is a child, the meet and greet is with both the parent and the child.)
  2. If we determine to move forward, I will email my contract, payment policy, and student information sheet. The client must fill out all three documents before I begin tutoring sessions. The policies page on this website goes over the contract content.
  3. I will hold tutoring sessions 1–3 times a week, depending on the needs of the client until my services are no longer required.

Meet and Greet: The meet and greet, a free informal meeting, allows me to sit down with the potential client and discuss goals, my policies, payment plan, and my approach. I also will walk the student through a quick math task. If the student is a child, the parent must be at this meeting. At the end of this meeting, we will decide together whether I am the right tutor for you.

Sessions: During tutoring sessions, the student should come prepared either with a homework assignment to work on or notes/concepts learned in class that week. You must take notes in class, so I can easily determine the concept/skill you are working on. I will focus my tutoring to align with the class curriculum. Together at each session, we will work through a math concept you struggle with. If you have homework, we will work on it; if not, I will create sample problems to help you understand the notes/concepts taught that week.

My Approach

While I will use your homework and notes as our guide, I focus on skill-building and not just completing homework. So if you struggle with a certain skill, I will continue working on that skill even when your homework now addresses a new concept. 

Yes, we will work on your homework, but ultimately true success comes from building your skills. Together, we will work on the concept in one set of class notes or unit until you have mastered it. The goal here is mastery.
