Frequently Asked Questions

Maya’s Tutoring offers personalized tutoring for students from elementary school to college. We specialize in math, with a focus on building strong foundational skills and progressing to more complex concepts as students advance.

We begin with an initial assessment to understand the student’s current proficiency level. Our tutors then regularly monitor progress, providing detailed feedback to students and parents. This approach helps in adapting teaching methods to the student’s evolving needs.

Our tutors are selected for their expertise in mathematics and their passion for teaching. They have strong educational backgrounds in relevant fields, including education, math, engineering, and physics, and have experience in tutoring or teaching.

Absolutely. While we take great care in matching students with suitable tutors, we understand the importance of a good student-tutor relationship. If you or the tutor feels the match is not optimal, we will find a more suitable tutor to fit their needs

Online sessions are conducted using zoom with an interactive white board that both the student and tutor write on. Students will need a computer with a webcam and microphone. A touch screen laptop or tablet is preferred.

No, we do not require a long-term commitment or a minimum number of sessions. Payments are processed after each session.

The safety and comfort of our students and tutors is paramount. Every one of our tutors pass a background check. For in-home sessions, we ask that they work in an open space like the living room with a parent nearby. For neutral locations like libraries, we choose well-lit, public areas. We also comply with all local health and safety guidelines.

Our tutors are skilled in building rapport and making learning engaging. We work to understand the root of the resistance, whether it’s lack of confidence, interest, or other challenges, and adapt our approach to make the student more comfortable and open to learning.

Absolutely! We encourage parent involvement. Regular updates will be provided, and we welcome any insights or concerns you may have about your child’s progress. We believe that collaboration between tutors, students, and parents is key to successful learning.

We understand that plans can change. We request that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule a session. This allows us to adjust our tutors’ schedules accordingly. Please note that cancellations made without 24 hours’ notice will incur a $30 fee.

Improvement timelines vary based on individual students. Some may show progress within a few weeks, while others might take longer. Consistent tutoring and practice are key. Tutoring is a marathon, not a sprint. Strong understanding in math takes time but the proper way of thinking will last a lifetime.

Hiring a private tutor offers personalized one-on-one attention, tailored lesson plans, and the flexibility to focus on specific areas of improvement, ensuring faster progress

To begin tutoring, simply reach out to us through email, phone, or schedule a time for us to reach out to you. We’ll discuss your goals, assess the student’s areas for improvement, and match you with a suitable tutor to kickstart the learning journey!

We generally suggest 1-3 sessions per week, lasting 1-2 hours each. This balanced approach promotes steady progress without overwhelming the student. The specific schedule can be tailored to your child’s learning pace and goals.
