3.  What kind of Care do I need?

Control Care
Is this You? I’m happy with my current grade and basically understand the material, but some sections are harder than others. I want help to maintain my grade and fine tune my math skills.

How does this Work? We’ll work together once a week.

Critical Care
Is this You? I need additional help to improve my math skills and grades.

How does this Work? We’ll work together 2 times a week.

Intensive Care
Is this You? Oh, my gosh, I need HELP! I’m way behind, because I’ve missed class for a family emergency, sickness, or something else. Or my teacher’s style doesn’t match my learning style. Or I haven’t had a math class in years. Or I barely passed my previous math class. I am lost.

How does this Work? We’ll work together 3 times a week.

Singles Care
Is this You? You want help here and there. Or you can only commit to one week at a time.

How does this Work? You schedule sessions as you go.

4.  What is your regular rate?

$60 per hour

5.  What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellation Policies

If, a student contacts me with more than 24 hours notice, we will reschedule your session.

If, a student cancels with less than 24 hours notice, then the fee of the missed session is due. If, the student reschedules with less than 24 hours notice, then $60 is still due for the missed session.

6.  Do you offer group tutoring?

Yes. I offer tutoring for up to two people per session. This works well if they are in the same class.

I take turns helping each student. As one student works on what we discussed, then I will help the other. Also, each student can learn from listening to me discuss math problems with the other student.

There will be extra fees for this, please contact me for this information.

7.   I’m going to take a standardized test.  Can you help me with the math portion of the test? If, yes, then what are your fees?

Yes, I can definitely help you.

$60 per hour

8.   Do you accept checks? Credit Cards?

Yes.  I accept cash, checks, credit cards, or PayPal. Please note, if, you want to use a credit card or PayPal, then that must be pre-paid prior to our session.


top

9.  Can we work longer than our scheduled appointment?

If, I have the next hour free, then yes we can.

The fee for an additional 30 minutes is $30 or an extra full hour for $60.

10.  What age group do you tutor?

I’ve tutored students from 7th grade to students in their 60s. The range of math classes are between Algebra to Calculus 2 and Statistics. This would include nursing students and graduate students that have classes with a math or statistics as a component within this range.

11.  My teacher gave me a Review Sheet for next week’s test. Will I be able to learn everything I need to know in an hour session?

If, you understand the majority of the material on the Review Sheet and just need help with some problems, then it’s possible. If, most of the Review Sheet is really hard, then one hour won’t be long enough.

Our brains can only absorb so much new material at one time. In general, students need time to do plenty of examples and give their brains time to absorb the material.  If, we cover too much “new” material at one time, then it will be next to impossible to retain it for the test.

12.  Math came easily to me before this class and I really don’t know what to do. Can you help me?

Yes. I can help you.

Often, when math has come easily to students, they haven’t needed to learn how to study for math. When the time to study comes, I can help a student learn how to study for math in a way that fits their learning style.

13.  I don’t have much time to study math. Can you help me to just know it?

Math takes time studying. There is no easy pill to take and then we get it. I can help you understand concepts and even show you different ways to do the problems that might make more sense to you. Also, I can help you with  study techniques and math anxiety.

14.  Can you just do the homework for me? I’ll watch, so I’ll learn as you do the homework problems.

I can do problems similar to your homework. And I often will do similar problems to help you understand the process. I can not do a student’s homework.

Math needs a hands-on learning process to really get it. Having correct homework that someone else has done will not help a student learn the material nor will it help them to pass the test. Also, this falls under academic dishonesty.


top

15.  How does tutoring work? or Will you look at my homework/Review Sheet and tell me if it is correct?

Usually, I will have students explain their process to me. We can go problem by problem. If, there is a mistake with the problem, I will ask questions to help you figure out the answer. And, if needed, then I will do sample problems.

Sometimes, students will have the correct answer, but they really aren’t sure. As students explain their work step-by-step, with me occasionally asking questions, students grow more confident and sure of themselves and their math knowledge. When students are still stuck, we can work on similar questions until they feel comfortable with it.
