My Math Tutor
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you work ?
I work out of a private office, across from Southridge School - which is in the Rosemary
Heights / Morgan Creek /Grandview Heights neighbourhood in South Surrey, British Columbia.
What are your hours ?
I work Monday through Friday, afternoons and evenings and on weekends, Saturday and
Sunday during the day. Please contact me for current openings and availability.
How long do sessions last ?
A standard session is 45 minutes . If needed we can schedule longer sessions,
in 15 minute increments, up to 2 hours.
How often should my child get tutoring?
Depending on the student's specific needs and goals, we can meet regularly or on an
"as-needed" basis. In general, if a student is struggling due to gaps in learning, or has
fallen behind and needs to catch up, 2 sessions per week are recommended for best results.
Then, as the student progresses, the frequency of sessions can be adjusted to once a
week sessions or on an "as-needed" basis.
Do you teach during the summer holidays?
Yes. During the summer, I provide support for Summer School courses,
On-Line Courses ... as well as personalized "jump-start" programs (Math 4- 12)
to help students get a head-start and be better prepared for the upcoming school year.
How and when do I pay? What is the session rate?
Payment can be made at the beginning or end of each session. For convenience,
advance payments for several pre-scheduled sessions can also be made
(e.g. per month or per 10 sessions). Cash or cheques are fine; I do not take credit cards.
What does my child need to bring to a tutoring session?
Please bring paper, pencil, eraser, calculator and all class materials: textbook, course outline,
class notes, homework, assignment sheets, and any tests or quizzes.
How do I get started?
Contact me to schedule an initial complementary/free
consultation session to see if we are a good teacher-student fit.
After that, we can set-up appointments on an on-going basis.
