Introduction: I offer virtual tutoring in practically all math subjects from basic math through calculus. All you need is a computer (or tablet, but preferably a computer) with Skype and a microphone (which all laptops have built in). Having taught math for 17 years in public school at all levels from algebra through calculus, and now with 3 years of experience as a full time tutor, I know why students "don't get" certain topics. My familiarity with the obstacles enables me to better help students overcome them. Rather than show students gimmicks to help remember, I focus on helping students understand. Understanding is, after all, what learning is all about, and it is the key to long term success in math. My slogan is, "If you don't why, why know?" I am so confident that you will be pleased with my service that if you are not satisfied with the first session, I will not charge you! Plus, unlike most tutoring agencies, my service would not require a subscription. You can pay as you go, via PayPal, Google Wallet, Venmo, or Zelle. For more details, please visit my website. The "aha" moment is my favorite part of what I do. Math is supposed to be understood, not memorized and regurgitated. My three favorite words are "That makes sense!"

Math Tutoring

Hi Folks, Let me make this straight to the point. This is the BEST math tutor out there. If you don't learn your material with him, then you won't learn it with anyone. Seriously, look no further. His style, patience, and set up are second to none. You will get all notes regarding the material that you both covered which is awesome to come back and review with.

Algebra Tutoring

Initially I was skeptical about trying thumbtack so glad I did. Lee “Mathedmaven” is the absolute best! He accommodated my schedule and helped me with the exact area/problems of college Algebra I requested. He is extremely knowledgeable and the way he breaks down the problems and his explanations are priceless. He is the reason why I passed. He's patient and really knows how to get you involved in math. The price a little high but fair and well worth it. Easy payment process. Tutoring online extremely convenient. So if you're hesitant like I was just go for it you won't regret it. Thanks for making math so easy for me, Lee!

College-level Math Tutoring

MathEdMaven Tutoring is AMAZING! I've used him since he began 2 1/2 years ago, and have now hired him to teach me Calculus I, II, and III! He ALWAYS come prepared with problems and materials if given the material ahead of time, but is just as confident with doing math on the fly! The online platform makes it easy to work on the go. I can even review for a test during lunch at school! He has moved his schedule around on a moments notice to accommodate me. Thank you for all of your help!

Lee is a wonderful tutor. We hired him to be our son's math tutor for a complete academic year. He makes sure he understands the concepts in math before simply memorizing how to execute a problem. My son thinks Lee is awesome and has helped him quite a bit. I highly recommend him!

When my son started working with Lee, he was terrified of math class, math homework, and math tests. He had failed so often he really didn't think he could succeed. He has dyslexia, and so typical approaches weren't working for him. Lee researched my son's challenges, tried different techniques, and even took a class to understand how to help him. Lee quickly developed expertise in Multisensory Math techniques, which are great for any kid but particularly necessary for many with learning differences. The fact that he tutors over Skype was incredibly helpful for motivation, as my son didn't have to get in the car and go anywhere at the end of a long school day. After a string of good grades in math and the thumbs up from his teacher, my son decided he was ready to try going tutor-free for a semester, knowing that he can always call Lee if the going gets tough. My son and I highly recommend him!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The first hour each week is $54. Anytime after that during the same week is $48 per hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I ask the student if they know specifically what (s)he needs help with. If (s)he cannot tell me, I probe to see what (s)he understands and doesn't understand. I make it clear that my goal is to help with UNDERSTANDING, not just help to get an assignment completed. If a first time customer is not satisfied with my service, I do not charge anything. I have only had to implement this a few times, because most people are very pleased, as is evident from my reviews.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    20 years experience teaching in HS classroom 10+ years experience in one-on-one tutoring
