Susan P. Brooklyn NY.
I'm great at analyzing what you do and don't understand!
I have been a math teacher and English teacher since 1995, focusing on math. I have tutored students individually throughout that time. I believe each person constructs meaning out of the world and individual discussion helps people make sense of what they see and experience. I decided to focus on teaching math because I have also struggled with math in the past and so understand what kinds of trouble other people might experience, and because it is so essential in our modern world to unde...

How a Brooklyn Tutor Can Help
The most obvious answer to this question is to help students improve their grades. This can be by going over testing skills and working through any fears and anxieties around exams or by strengthening a student’s overall understanding of a particular subject through practice. But, there are other valuable skills that students can learn from a professional tutor that is not directly related to their GPA.
When students have consistent difficulty with a subject or a particular concept in class, they may feel embarrassed enough to stop themselves from asking for help from their teacher or peers. Tutoring sessions are not only a safe environment for students to ask questions they feel are “silly” or “easy,” but are spaces for students to build confidence in their ability to learn.
Private tutors are also an excellent resource to learn and practice study techniques so students can learn how to process the information presented in class on their own or with a group.
Finally, tutors can be an excellent resource for parents not equipped with the knowledge, training, or skills to assist the student in need with their work, especially if they are not educators or are familiar with the subject.
How Does Brooklyn Tutoring Work?
First things first, figure out what you need from your tutor. If you have a middle school student needing help staying on track, hiring someone specializing in high school math may not be helpful.
Next, you have to discuss and arrange with your tutor whether or not your student will be attending sessions in-person or online and what the rules are for either option. Some tutors might require that remote students have a quiet and secluded area for students to work or have unique requests for pick-up and drop-off procedures for in-person students.
As for the specifics of what will happen during the tutoring session, ask your tutor. Each tutor has their method of teaching, and they would be more than happy to explain how each session will be structured and the goals for the student moving forward.
This is an insightful conversation to have before the first session, as you may discover more requirements that your tutor needs to meet.
Benefits of Working with a Brooklyn Tutor
As we mentioned earlier, improving grades is a widespread reason students and their families seek out the help of tutors. This is a very generous benefit when considering opportunities to join specific academic organizations and apply for college and scholarships. But, let’s get into some of the particular benefits you can expect your student to experience besides a higher GPA.
Preparing Them for College
Watching your students struggle with their course materials can be challenging, but working through these obstacles can be helpful if they decide to pursue higher education. Collegiate work is much more complex than your student’s exposure to in their secondary education. Learning to recognize when they’re struggling and work through those issues will save them from learning these lessons during college when there is more at stake.
Positive and Individualistic Work Environment
Having a private tutor allows the student to have a one-on-one learning experience that they may not be able to get from their instructor at school to ask as many questions as they need. In addition to this individualized approach, our tutors create a positive environment so the student can get comfortable and get the most out of each session.
Optimistic Attitude towards School and Learning
Struggling with schoolwork can make students feel bad about themselves, envious of their peers, and foster negative feelings about school and learning if they do not have the proper academic support. Having a private tutor to give them the skills, like test prep, to overcome these academic obstacles can give them the confidence to see challenges as an opportunity for growth.
How Much Does a Brooklyn Tutor Cost?
Cost can be a significant deciding factor for families considering hiring a tutor for a student, and you should consider your budget as you look through our list of tutors. An experienced tutor will charge more for their time, so keep an eye out for that.
Families do not have to sign up for a subscription to access our directory of tutors, and there is no universal cost for all of our tutors. Each tutor has their rate, and you will only be required to pay for the hours your student uses.
Our tutors also have set a certain number of hours or days before the next scheduled tutoring session can be canceled. Remember when scheduling sessions, as it could affect your payments.
How Do I Choose a Brooklyn Tutor?
Following our guide to narrow your search for the best tutor for you will give you a quality list of matches, but you’ll still have to pick one from the set you’ll be shown.
To choose a Brooklyn tutor that would be a good fit, you must assess what qualities are important to you.
You may want a tutor with years of experience with an overwhelming amount of positive reviews, or you may decide that you want someone with a master’s or doctorate in a particular subject rather than just a bachelor’s. All this information is available on our tutors’ profiles to help you make your final decision.

Tutoring centers can be a great place to find tutors, local research tutors in the area, or find a fantastic tutor through recommendations from local schools in Brooklyn or further research.

Are online Brooklyn tutors available?
Yes, we have online tutors in Brooklyn who will be available to work with students. Online tutors can be private or public tutors but also excel in tutoring students to help them excel in their academic potential.
How is online tutoring different from in-person tutoring?
Both online and in-person tutoring services have advantages and disadvantages, and understanding what they are can help you pick the best tutoring method for your student.
Online tutoring services are excellent for students who need a remote tutor but can feel a little impersonal since they’ll be talking to you through a screen. Correcting mistakes while practicing may be difficult unless you have a tech-savvy tutor.
In-person tutoring services are excellent for students who benefit from the social interaction across the table but can be difficult if they don’t live near their tutor.
Is Working with a Brooklyn Tutor tax deductible?
For the average student, hiring a tutor is not tax deductible. However, there are specific situations that may allow for a tax deduction. Keep yourself updated with your state and federal tax codes to see if you qualify, or stay aware of any changes that are made in the future.
