We are the math and science tutoring gurus. The President of the company, a scientist and math expert himself, personally tests all of his tutors by asking the applicants to give him a mock tutoring session in a math or science topic. This enables him to evaluate whether the interviewee is not only an expert in math and science but can also convey the material effectively. Applicants are also subjected to a written test along with general tutoring questions to allow him to judge the applicant’s demeanor. Because of our stringent hiring requirements, we only hire a fraction of tutors who apply to MathSmart Tutoring.
MathSmart Tutoring performed a 5-year statistical study using our tutors and students ranging from elementary through high school levels. We collected data from all students in their first semester with us, who started with a grade of “B” or lower, rarely cancelled tutoring sessions, and regularly did their homework in school. Our study found that our students improved their test scores by an average of two full letter grades by the end of their math and science courses. Most MathSmart students received an “A” in their second semester with us as their final letter grade.

Born in NYC, went to Woodward High School in Rockville, MD, BA University of Chicago M.S.Ed. Johns Hopkins.
I have tutored mathematics, in grades one through college calculus, and math SAT and GRE test preparation for twenty years. I have a BA in Geophysical Sciences from the University of Chicago, a BS in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Maryland, and a MS degree in education from Johns Hopkins University. I am the Editor and Co-author of Math SAT 800: How to Master the Toughest Problems, Editor and Co-author of SAT Math 800: Challenge Yourself to the Perfect Score, Editor and Co-Author of Praxis I Math: My Private Tutor, Editor of SAT Vocabulary Lightning and Editor of How to Master GRE Vocabulary. In my spare time, I like to write comedy screenplays and invent board games.
I believe that all students are capable of doing well in school. No educator should give up on a student. Students need encouragement and emotional support from their parents, teachers, and fellow students as they progress in school. I also believe that much should be expected from children. It is the shared responsibility of the student, the tutor and/or teacher, and the parent to improve the student’s grades. Doing homework every day is essential to the student’s progress and is sometimes more important than the tutoring itself.
“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication to my daughter during the past several months. Without your kind and patient attention, she would have fallen to the bottom of the barrel in algebra very quickly, and would never have been able to recover. She worked very well with you, and while I know there were some rough spots, you kept her on task and – most importantly – feeling good about herself that she was able to do those things she never thought she could do. Math is very difficult for her, as you know, and yet I heard you two talking and laughing during your work together and I knew you had the magic touch needed to make her care. I will be delighted to provide references for you for years to come, and I again thank you for being such a gentle and warm person who can work with a 15 year old and not intimidate her, and even gain her confidence. I don’t know what she would have done without you!”
In addition to general homework help, preparation for quizzes and tests, and math enrichment,
we provide in-home private tutoring for the following subjects.
