First Session length is 75 minutes. 60 minutes of tutoring and an additional ~15 to discuss what I’ve noticed and answer your questions.

I will work with you, using your homework and assigned book (preferred), or my resources. The idea is to observe how you approach a problem, what you know how to do, what you do understand, and what you don’t. 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 this hour of actual tutoring I’ll outline an initial recommended plan to address your needs. Typically I’ll spend the additional ~15 minutes to discuss my recommendations and explain what I’ve seen. I will also point out, depending on your circumstances, resources you may want to use and harness to your advantage (approaching the teacher for extra help, school clubs and honor societies, etc.). This is  a good time for you to ask additional questions that I’ll gladly answer.

Tutoring Rates range between $50 per session to $130 per session.

Rate Depends on two factors: the length of the session (Session can range between 30 minutes to 2 hours) and your level of commitment as manifested by pre-purchasing of sessions.

Shorter sessions are more expensive per hour because of the time I spend on the road to and from the session. The longer the session the lower the cost per hour. For most students their exact location will not affect the rate (see below).

Paying in advance for a certain number of sessions (5, 10, 20 etc.) will result in additional discount to the rate per session.

My recommendation is to agree on the format (length and number of sessions payed in advance) after our first or second session. This allows you the most flexibility. Assuming you are interested in more than at-will commitment I will reimburse you for the difference between the first and second sessions and the rate we agree upon – to assure you have enough time to decide.

I travel to a location of 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 due to distractions and noise.

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 student live in northern Virginia while others reside in DC. To figure out if you are within the normal service zoon 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 cash or check payments. Please discuss payments options with me when you are ready to commit. I’m aware some families experience financial difficulties and am willing to work with you towards terms that you can afford.
