About the Math Center

The Math Center offers private one-on-one math classes for students across a variety of different math subjects and needs. Our philosophy is to help students build the confidence and knowledge necessary to become better life-long math learners as they are faced with increasingly challenging math problems in their schooling and careers to come. To that end, in all of our programs, we seek to help students achieve their learning/test-taking goals by identifying gaps in knowledge and building a stronger mathematical and problem-solving foundation. Students are given guidance on how to approach problems with the end goal being for them to discover the solution themselves. We are here to help your student today, but nothing would give us more pride than to see them grow into no longer needing us tomorrow.
