Math is all about thinking and skills. Skills alone don't make the cut.

Math is not only about using your logic and rational thinking. It is also not just about using techniques and skills to bring these thoughts to life. It is also about reading comprehension and being able to express your thoughts in writing (in a language we can call “Mathish”). My objective is to leverage your strengths and put them to good use in your exploration of the math world.

First Session $75 (60 minutes of tutoring and an additional ~15 to discuss preliminary findings and answer your questions).

First session for all plans is $75 (and takes approx. 75 minutes).

I will work with you, either using my materials, your homework, or the book you have been assigned. These ~60 min will allow me to have a glimpse into the way you approach math related tasks, some insight as to your technical level, and a first look at most of the major math issues you face.

Based on our work together and initial impression I’ll outline an initial recommended plan to address your needs. Typically I’ll spend an additional ~15 minutes to discuss my recommendations and explain why I made them. I will also point out, depending on your circumstances, resources you may want to use and harness to your advantage.

Tutoring Rates as low as $50 per session or $60 per hour

Following the first session, once you decide I’m a good fit to address your needs – you should choose an option that works best for you.

The rates below refer to at-will engagement – you are not committed in any way and can stop/continue when it fits you. However, the more sessions you purchase/commit to up-front the better the rate I can offer you. If you know you’ll need several sessions, I suggest you’ll consider purchasing several sessions worth – then we can discuss a rate that will fit your budget and reflect my appreciation of your business, commitment, and trust. This change can be made at any time so if you are not sure you can revisit this option later on.

Tutoring sessions range from 30 minutes up to 2 hours.
Sessions can be extended if needed, based on availability.
I do not recommend sessions over an hour to students in high school and certainly not for younger students. The sessions that are over an hour are recommended only for adult learners and students that are preparing for one of the standardized tests (SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT etc.).

Students should schedule sessions in advance (based on availability). This is especially important in case their schedule prevents them from having sessions on regular days and times (see terms of service in the policy section). Late cancellation may carry a cancellation fee and frequent cancellations/last minute rescheduling may cause unilateral termination of sessions. Please try to choose a plan that is right for you.

Payment arrangements can and should be discussed (and can be revisited given your circumstances).

1. Basic Tutoring Plan – $50 / 30 minutes tutoring.

The basic tutoring plan is designed for students who require help in a specific topic or a quick review of the material before a quiz or test. If you are not sure you really need a tutor throughout the semester and consider your problems as minor,  this might best fit your needs. We’ll discuss during our first sessions ways to maximize the benefits from such a format of a short session.

2. Standard Tutoring Plan – [ @ $75/hr]
This plan will fit the needs of the typical student who seeks ongoing math help. Meet 1-2 times per week, for sixty minutes at a time. This can be for a few sessions or continue over the course of several months, to ensure all math concepts are learned and retained. This is a very attractive option for high school students looking for help during the fall or spring semester. It is also for students preparing for an upcoming standardized test, who need an in-depth review of the material  and are not yet at a level where they’ll benefit from longer sessions (e.g. SAT, ACT, GRE, etc.).

3. Intense tutoring Plan – $130 / 120 minutes (2 hours).

The intense tutoring plan is designed for students who need to cover a lot of material in a short time frame. Typically adult learners who are taking their first math course in several years or high school students taking the redesigned SAT / ACT / GRE who need to practice through long periods of intense concentration and focus. If you either take one of these standardized test or are an adult learner this might best fit your needs.

You can switch plans in accordance with your needs and schedule – however, advance notice of several weeks will be appreciated.

I travel to a location o your choice (usually up to 15 miles) at no additional cost (see details below) or conduct sessions at my home (Parking, cold/hot drinks and WiFi provided). Most students prefer to conduct sessions at their home where they are in a familiar and supporting environment. Other students like to reserve a study room in one of the local libraries. I have conducted sessions in Starbucks, Panera, and alike – although those are less preferable.

Generally, the majority of my students reside within the Rockville, Bethesda, Gaithersburg, Kensington, Silver Spring, Potomac, North Potomac, and near-by communities in Montgomery County, MD. Some come from northern Virginia and DC.

Open Google maps, enter your address and set zip code 20852 as your destination – if it’s +/- 15 miles or less no additional charge will apply. If you are outside the described zone you can either travel to a location within the 15 mile radius, have sessions at my place, or add  $1/mile to the tutoring fees.

I accept check or cash payments. Please discuss payments plan with me when you are ready to commit.

Lastly, if you are willing to make long term commitments (~10 sessions and above) I’ll  be more than open to discuss a discounted rate.
