Math Tutoring is an opportunity for students to receive concentrated help with specific math concepts. How this time is used is completely driven by student feedback. My philosophy is that I am here for the student, the student is not here for me. Please understand the more information the student can provide about the problems they are having, the more efficient our tutoring time will be spent.
Students may either have one to one tutoring time or may be tutored in small groups based on availability and student preference.
Fee: $15 per 30 minute period. Please contact the director to schedule.
