I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research).

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

First lesson. Too soon to tell. Not what I was expecting, but I had nothing on which to base any expectation. I will trust the process.

Are you ready to improve your grade in Math? I'd love to help you understand the math course you're taking and have fun with it.

My only goal is for you to succeed!

Mary Lou is a loving teacher and truly concerned with my daughter’s success. She is very flexible. Sometimes my daughter needs help with her homework, Mary Lou will change her schedule to accommodate her. She always has a smile on her face that makes my introverted daughter comfortable. My daughter and I are always talking about how kind and polite she is. My daughter’s understanding of Algebra has shown remarkable improvement. Whatever my daughter does not understand at school, Mary Lou helps her to understand. I cannot write enough about her. Thank you Mary Lou.

I am a passionate and enthusiastic STEM educator with over 5 years of experience working with students of all ages, including students attending Ivy League universities and students with learning differences.

I specialize in teaching the science and math components of STEM. These subjects are often the most challenging subjects students encounter; they are also deeply intertwined with one another. Thus, it can be very beneficial to have a single tutor who is well-versed in a variety of subjects. I strive to break down the barriers between individual topics and help my students understand these subjects on a deeper level. Ultimately, I aim to not only help my students overcome academic challenges, but also to lead them to becoming autonomous, independent learners. I strive to empower my students and instill them with intrinsic motivation to learn so they can reach their full potential.

I believe education is not one-size-fits all. Every student is unique. What works or makes sense ...

Super beneficial for my SAT prep - Mehika really helped me not only learn but fully understand the algebra/calculus I needed for both class and the SAT. She breaks down the material into easy to understand sections and fully ensures each topic is understood before moving on. She made me feel comfortable when I had questions and never made lessons feel like she was rushed.
Rachel
Mehika is an incredible tutor. Her background in math and computer sciences is highly advanced, but she was able to help make incredibly complex concepts seem super simple. I understood more in our sessions than I did watching hours of online lecture material. I recommend Mehika's services for anyone at any point of their math journey.

"Janis first tutored our son in math. I was impressed with her admission to me that our son was smart enough to do the math on his own, but needed only motivation. She allowed us to be the ones to decide if we wanted to spend the money on tutoring after having this knowledge. We did continue, and she was really great with him. His grade was raised before we knew it! We then found out she gave guitar lessons and hired her to teach my daughter. She was incredibly patient and made the lessons fun. Both my son and daughter developed a strong relationship with her. I highly recommend her to teach anything!"
