Private Math Teacher

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

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

Looking for rapid improvement in mathematic skills? I have been tutoring professionally for ten years, working with some of the top tutoring agencies in New York. I currently teach students attending Dalton, Collegiate, Riverdale, Horace Mann, and Chapin, among other schools.

I am a teacher first--not just a mathematician. I teach according to YOUR specific needs, strengths, and challenges. My priority is to help you build confidence and comfort alongside mastery of the material.

I teach ISEE, SSAT, and ACT math in addition to Common Core and regular coursework.

About Jesse

My priority is to help you grow. And everyone learns differently. That's why all of my tutoring is 100% individualized. I teach according to your goals, your learning style, and your challenges. My students get results because their learning is tailored to their needs. I'm a professional teacher

Jesse is exactly what you would want in a tutor. He is extremely knowledgeable and has excellent intuition on how to present information in an understandable way. His lesson plans are extremely flexible to how you are learning the information. Highly recommended if you are looking for a Spanish language tutor.
Theo
I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being.
Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.

"Colin is amazing. I was preparing to take the AFOQTS and my first score was 70... I scheduled lessons with Colin and 2 weeks later I scored a 98 on the actual test! Colin was extremely good at communicating with me, being flexible in our lessons and adopting what he was teaching to exactly what I needed. Like me he had to "relearn" math as an adult and because of that he is able to explain things so that they make sense logically rather than give formulas to memorize like my horrible public school teachers.

I really cannot recommend him enough, thank you for all your help Colin!"

She allowed us to be the ones to decide if we wanted to spend the money on tutoring after having this knowledge. We did continue, and she was really great with him. His grade was raised before we knew it! We then found out she gave guitar lessons and hired her to teach my daughter. She was incredibly patient and made the lessons fun.

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

How to Find a Private Math Teacher Near You

Before selecting a tutor, we recommend reading through several profiles and reviews from other math students.

You'll find that investing in private math tutoring pays off fast, as you start to readily understand concepts that once seemed too difficult to grasp. With your private tutor, you'll improve your grades and open up opportunities in a variety of STEM career fields. Ready to start your math journey?
