Marwa has been very patient and engaging with my seventh grader who is challenged with math primarily due to dyslexia. So far, it seems to be a great student/tutor match and I’m eager to see how this propels my daughter forward towards a successful year. Thank you Marwa for your dedication and excellent work!
Laura Gatto
Marwa helped my son on very short notice understand material from his advanced 8th grade algebra class. He felt such relief after spending time with her and gaining a better grasp of the material. We will definitely be booking Marwa again!

I have been helping others learn math for seven years and I enjoy watching it click for others just as much as I enjoyed it when math first began to make sense to me. From experience, I know that mathematics can be very easy, or seemingly impossible to learn depending on how the information and concepts are presented. Whether you need help with fractions, factoring polynomials, trigonometric identities, solving triple integrals or anything in between, I can break everything down to first principles, and help you attain that deep understanding of the concepts that will get you that A on your next test.

I am taking a doctoral statistics class where the assignments are all theory and understanding of research versus specific math equations. Colin is great at helping me understand the material. I appreciate his tutoring skills. I will be using him again when I take my intermediate statistics and research class.

Private Math Teacher

I love math. With over 2500 hours of math tutoring experience, I've helped countless elementary school, middle school and high school students get better grades, strengthen their math skills, and build a bridge over a subject that will help them their entire lives. College and university students who've worked with me, as well as working adults, have succeeded in their classes and moved forward toward their futures, feeling more confident and better prepared for using math in real life application. Test prep is another area where I can help with math, using concept review, strategy and time management to help students maximize scores in math sections.

About Natalie

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

Pu S.
My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.
Lynne
My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

Private Math Teacher

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science, and I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus for 5 years. I have received perfect scores on both SAT Math, ACT Math, and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test). I have taken AP Calculus BC while in high school, and I have taken Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT, and I actively participated in many math competitions through elementary, middle, and high schools.

Before the lessons, I like to talk with parents, students, and/or teachers to fully gauge what they have been struggling with and how to best help them. Then I identify the student's gap in knowledge while helping them complete their homework and give them additional drilling problems as needed to help them fully master the materials and do well on their tests. I always carry around books containing extra problems depending on the students' levels and goals.

Since geometry questions, especially proofs, are not very obvious, I often ...

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer

"Julia is not only a great math teacher, who can explain challenging concepts to the kids, but also a wonderful and caring person. My son has been taking private math lessons with her. She makes the lessons challenging enough so the kid is not bored, but not so challenging that he doesn't feel discouraged. He is in third grade and they've been covering 4th grade material which allows him to get ahead of the curve."

Private Math Lessons Near You

Math has a bad reputation. Many believe it to be a challenging, dry subject that requires lots of hard work and effort to understand. While succeeding and even excelling in math class might take some serious study time, learning it is well worth the effort. If you've ever sat in math class, wondering if you'll ever use what you're learning in the real world, the answer is emphatically, "Yes!"

Some level of math is important and applicable to almost everyone. Math couldn't be more important to our daily lives — from baking a pie, making a household budget, and understanding how interest accrues on a credit card or home loan to designing bridges, building powerful engines, and coding the algorithms responsible for the machine learning that improves Google searches, online dating ma

...

tches, and more.

Studying mathematics will set you up for success in any industry that interests you. Having a strong mathematics background is essential for anyone interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. 

Why Seek Math Help?

Does your homework take longer than normal (and not due to more assignments) or do you need more assistance than your math teacher or other usual resources can provide? Have you suddenly noticed that you enjoy math class less than you used to or feel like your grades and test scores don't reflect your hard work? If you're experiencing any of these issues or finding it difficult to focus on math like you used to, then you could benefit greatly from working with a private math tutor.

With private tutoring, you can ease the transition between schools or grade levels, prepare for an important standardized test, work through concepts that you've had a difficult time grasping, or stay motivated by learning new, challenging topics. Whether you want to learn math for your own interest, to gain confidence in class, to improve your grades and test scores, or to start working toward a career in a STEM industry, then studying with a private tutor can help you achieve your goals. 

How a Math Tutor Can Help Your Online Studies

As more schools and families move to remote learning and as more classes become available in online formats, you may find you or your children in need of additional tutoring. Not only are many teachers new to providing online instruction, but it’s also a new experience for students, too. Because of this, it’s no wonder you may find yourself falling behind or trying to keep up, especially when it comes to understanding and learning challenging math concepts. Therefore, for those already taking online math courses, a private math tutor might be just what you need to stay on track.

An online math tutor for adults and children alike provides students with the extra help and guidance they need. At TakeLessons, our online math tutors assess their students’ needs and determine the right course of action to help get them up to speed. Because every math tutor offers one-on-one private instruction, you can focus on the areas that are the most troubling for you. Need help understanding formulas or looking to challenge your math skill set? Allow our tutors to help. Every instructor is patient and dedicated to helping their students succeed in the world of math. Whether you want to make learning fractions fun for your kids or you need help acing your first calculus test, a private math tutor is the way to go.

The Benefits of An Online Math Tutor

If you’re already taking online classes, why not add an online tutor to the mix? When you sign up for private tutoring, you can begin receiving one-on-one instruction from the comfort of your home or wherever is most convenient for you. There is no need to get in the car and drive to a classroom setting or meet with your tutor in person. Your math tutor will create a virtual classroom experience that takes place entirely online. As long as you have internet access, you can sign on using your computer and web camera or on your smartphone. What’s more, your math tutor will work with your schedule, allowing you to receive instruction where and when works best for you. Prefer to learn on the weekends? Or after work? No problem. Our online tutors offer an affordable and hassle-free way of receiving the extra attention you need.

The Best Way to Learn Math and What You'll Study with Your Math Tutor

Although it's easy to find free math lessons and study guides online, the best way to learn is with a private teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention, immediate feedback, and personalized instruction that's not available online or in a larger classroom setting. You can spend as much or as little time as you need on a specific topic to learn at the pace that's right for you.

Plus, every private lesson is different. For example, math lessons for kids differ in terms of teaching methods and course content from math classes for adults. You'll stay motivated, interested, and make the most of your study time, while learning with a private math teacher.

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Math

Beginner math tutoring is generally intended for students who are at a grade school level of mathematics. This can range anywhere from learning the absolute basics of numbers, counting, and simple arithmetic to introductory algebra and geometry. Your teacher will customize lessons to your current learning level. You might study the following topics:

  • Counting and place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication and division
  • Solving basic word problems

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Math

Intermediate mathematics is typically considered high school level math. Most intermediate math students have a solid grasp of concepts and math tools which are taught up through the point of learning how to use the quadratic equation. You'll build on the basics and begin tackling more complex topics, functions, and concepts. Your intermediate teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Trigonometry
  • Precalculus
  • Introduction to calculus

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Math

Advanced mathematics typically include university level of mathematics study. The subjects covered in advanced mathematics depend on each student's interests, goals, and needs. Your teacher might cover the following:

  • Calculus
  • Dynamical systems and differential equations
  • Statistics and probability
  • Mathematical physics
  • Game theory
