Private Math Tutoring
Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in all levels of math, from elementary/middle school math to Algebra, AP Calculus, and AP Statistics. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional private math tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you'll receive a detailed progress report to track your child's improvement (view a real recap from one of our Calculus tutoring sessions).
What Parents Say about Our Math Tutors
The parent of an eighth grader from John Witherspoon Middle School contacted us to help her son with Algebra 2. He had been diagnosed with moderate to severe auditory processing disorder and had been working with a specialist. Additionally, he was struggling with math. He understood some concepts but not others. The student said that he could follow the math teacher at school but would forget the material by the time he came home and did homework in the evenings. He experienced similar issues when taking tests and was easily confused. Another underlying issue may have been motivation. Our goals were to increase his conceptual understanding of the subject matter, while also increasing his motivation.
We matched the son with Reuben, an East Asian studies major and jazz trumpeter at Princeton University who is also very talented in math and physics. Here are two messages we received from our client regarding her son:
“Hi Reuben, I wanted to let you know that C’s grade for math this past quarter is a B. First quarter he had a D. He has made tremendous improvement since working with you! C is thrilled and so are my husband and I. Thank you!”
“Greg, C really enjoyed working with Reuben. He did an amazing job with C. C started the year with an F in math. Within a few weeks of working with Reuben his grade went up to an A where it has remained... I’m wondering if you have others who tutor in English. If so we would be interested in an English tutor for C in addition to a math tutor.”

The Most Effective Matching Process – No need for you to scroll through dozens of potentially unqualified tutor profiles. Our experienced staff will match you with the tutor who will be the perfect fit for your child’s unique needs.

Satisfaction Guaranteed – We have an impressive track record of increased grades and confidence, and many of our clients are returning customers or referrals. This is why we can offer the best guarantee in the industry.
What further differentiates us from the competition is our genuine desire to help your child succeed. Both Kevin and I started tutoring in high school and continued throughout our college years at Princeton and beyond. We chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something we truly enjoyed.
Princeton Tutoring was born out of the early successes of our former clients and our desire to provide high-quality tutoring to other families. We understand better than most what parents are looking for, what children need, and which qualities make the best tutors.
Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.
Why Do Students Struggle with Math?
Our math students come to us for a variety of reasons. Some are failing their geometry class, some are doing okay but recently bombed an algebra test, some are doing well but want to work ahead of their class or prepare for math competitions.
Our students who struggle do so for a variety of reasons. For some, math simply is not their strong suit. The subject material just doesn’t click. For others, math used to be a strength, but for some reason, it has become difficult or is no longer interesting to them.
The specific teacher your student has can have a huge impact on his or her attitude towards the subject. Great teachers can make your child love math; the opposite can happen if the teacher cannot connect with your child. Many of our students just need additional motivation and private tutoring can go a long way in improving their confidence and belief in themselves.
Another scenario we commonly encounter are students who have done exceedingly well in middle school, but are now having trouble in high school. In high school, the amount of material increases and is covered at a faster pace, with more homework. Multiply this across all subjects, add in the transition to a new school, and a child who once was able to breeze through his classes may now struggle. In addition to helping with the actual subject matter, these students also benefit significantly from the study, organizational, and test-taking skills that our tutors incorporate in each lesson.
Not all of our students are struggling, though. We’ve worked with several students to prepare for math competitions. We’ve also taught entire courses to students. For example, one of our clients was moving to Israel and requested that we help her twins cover custom curricula (including concepts from algebra, geometry, and trigonometry) in order to prepare for the more demanding math program abroad.
