FAQ

Why are you no longer tutoring?

I’m chronically ill with ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) and unable to work. It’s estimated that 1-2.5 million Americans have ME/CFS, although the majority are undiagnosed. You can learn more about ME/CFS and donate to much-needed research here.

I’m a student or parent. Can you recommend a tutor?

Sure! I have a list of online tutors that I recommend here. I keep this list up to date as I’m able to, and I welcome student feedback.

I want to tutor. Can you help me?

I am not able to help you personally right now, but I’ve written some advice on how to get started tutoring in these two posts: How to Tutor Online and The Top 5 Online Math Tutor Tools. You may also want to check out the recommended tutors I list for inspiration on how to set up your website and business.

I’m a tutor. Can I be added to your recommended tutors list?

Maybe! Send me a message. I only recommend tutors who I know personally or who have public reviews on an independent platform (like google, facebook, a tutoring platform like Wyzant, etc.).

How does online tutoring work?

Students and tutors a computer and high-speed internet. During the session, the student and tutor typically use Skype or Zoom to hear and see each other, and an online whiteboard that they both can write on using a mouse or tablet. They can also upload any images or worksheets onto the whiteboard. Sometimes they may watch videos or use online tools like desmos, Khan Academy, or IXL. It’s very interactive and surprisingly easy!
