Do you do any online or virtual tutoring?
Yes! We provide online tutoring using Zoom as our primary platform. This has proven to be a very popular option during and post-covid. Dr. Math can support your student remotely using a variety of online tools and visual aids including online graphing calculators, Desmos, Delta Math, and his popular iPad writing pad. Here he delivers written information in real time as he discusses the problems with his students.
Dr. Math's assistant tutors have similar setups that allow for interactive virtual tutoring sessions as well. Tyler handles both math and science tutoring, Josh specializes in AP Calculus, Lisa works with middle and high school math students, and Nikki is the English, Reading, and Writing expert on staff.
Do you do group sessions?
Yes! If you and a friend want to tag-team one of our tutors for a 2-on-1 session, we can do that. It saves each of you a few dollars while you still receive the personalized instruction and help you need.
Do you work with homeschool families or groups?
Yes! We can work with one student or with groups of students who are taking the same course. Dr. Math can supplement what students are learning online or by DVD, or Dr. Math Tutoring can tailor a complete course to meet the needs of the group. Rates vary depending on the type of assistance needed, so contact Dr. Math for further information. Additional information is also provided on our Home Schooling page.
Do you offer financial aid?
Yes! We work with local schools to provide complementary tutoring for students who may not be able to afford private tutoring. A percentage of our tutoring hours are set aside to help students who would benefit from Dr. Math tutoring. Teacher recommendations are required.
