Tutoring — High School and College Mathematics

Question: Why should you pay $50 to $60 or more per hour of tutoring with a commercial tutoring service when you can get the same qualified and certified tutor for significantly less? Since the typical overhead of commercial services is from 30% to 50%, should your money go to people who are not directly tutoring you or your child?

I am an experienced tutor, having successfully tutored many high school and college students in all math subjects from Algebra 1 to Calculus 3. I have several hundred hours of tutoring experience.

My specialities are Calculus 1/2/3 and Precalculus (including trigonometry) — few math tutors are fully proficient and competent in calculus. I am able to challenge even the brightest of math students who want to learn the deeper, more rigorous concepts of calculus and analysis. ε-δ anyone? This is why I am referred to as “Dr. Calculus”. Yet, I am able to make mathematics down-to-earth and understandable for everyone!

High School Math Tutoring Subjects:
Besides Calculus (including AP Calculus AB/BC preparation) and Precalculus/Trigonometry, I will sometimes tutor high school Algebra 1/2, Geometry, and Statistics/Probability — I also tutor the related Math 1 to 4 courses still taught in some Georgia public high schools
College Math Tutoring Subjects:
Calculus 1/2/3, Precalculus, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Ordinary Differential Equations, and Numerical Analysis


My tutoring fees:

My tutoring rate is very competitive with commercial tutoring services and independent tutors at $38/hour, with discounts available for longer-term or certain pay arrangements. No contract required (unlike some commercial tutoring services which require a contract.)

As mentioned in the mini-bio on my home page, I am a certified tutor for two well-known and highly regarded commercial tutoring services — you get the same exemplary tutoring at a much lower cost!

I am willing to tutor up to 50 miles away from Acworth/Kennesaw (a few miles northwest of Marietta), with no mileage charge for the first 30 roundtrip miles. However, I do charge $0.75/mile (negotiable of course!) for every mile over 30 roundtrip miles.

Minimum 1 hour per session; however, I prefer at least 1.5 hour sessions, particularly for round trip travel distances in excess of 10 miles. (I find that students tend to learn a lot more in a 1.5 or 2 hour session than in a 1 hour session.)

I accept payment via Paypal, allowing you to pay by credit card!

Skype video tutoring at slightly discounted rates with Paypal arrangement. (Available worldwide, of course!)

Tutoring location:

I can tutor at your house, or at a convenient public location such as a coffee shop, library, etc.
