Group Math Tutoring

Group math tutoring can work for you. You might want math tutoring, yet might feel a little overwhelmed by the process. Perhaps you feel a little bit shy. Or, you might be a little uncomfortable with asking questions. You might just need the dynamic energy of another student. Or, might feel burdened by asking all the questions. You might even feel a little price-conscious. And that’s okay.

If so, group math tutoring is a good fit for you. You can enjoy the personal attention of private tutoring at a reduced cost. Rather than paying full price for tutoring (time), you can split the price with another student.


You’ll each have a private Ziteboard along with a group Ziteboard.

You can enjoy the benefits of private tutoring along with the synergy of a fellow classmate. Quite quickly you’ll realize that most of the questions you have are shared by your classmates.

No longer need you be alone in your fear and confusion. With group math tutoring, you’ll have help from both your tutor and your classmate.

DETAILS about Group Math Tutoring

You will want to pair up with a fellow student. Your colleague/co-sonspirator needn’t be in the same class period, but is is best to have the same teacher. Here are the situations that would work, from best to not ideal:

Basically, same class, same school, same teacher is ideal. Even if you don’t have the same teacher, if you’re taking the same class at the same school (eg: HBHS), you should be fine. Most schools – and even districts – set up the textbooks and syllabus to be consistent throughout classes within the district.

It’s when your compatriot is taking the same class at a different school, but same textbook, that could also work. We’ll just want to make sure that the syllabus, textbook, topics, and pacing are similar throughout. That way, you both benefit from group math tutoring.

In short, the more you can match up the class, teacher, textbook, and syllabus, the greater the benefit for you both.

A Hybrid Approach

Some students who have had group tutoring have also had private tutoring. Typically, they’ll use group math tutoring for most of their needs. Once in a while, they’ll schedule individual sessions.

You might find yourself in a similar position. Group math tutoring sessions might be enough to help you most of the time. Only intermittently, will you have to schedule individual sessions. In that case, the flexibility of scheduling will allow you to set sessions on an as-needed basis. The convenience of the online scheduler is that you can set a session for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. And you can ecscdheule them when you need them.

You Choose Group Math Tutoring That Works For You

You can decide on your own about group tutoring. Most of my students are from Orange County, with the majority of those from wtihin Huntington Beach Union High School District. So, if you attend HBHS, FVHS, Edision, Marina, or Westminster, you have a good sqcheance of knowing someone who has worked with me.

Be sure to set up your intro session now. It’s better to have the first session when there’s no pressure. Once school starts, the schedule fills up and there’s more stress involved in setting up group tutoring.

Good luck! May you do well in your academic endeavors.
