Math Tutors for Hire
Tutors on this list are self-employed and normally charge $25-35 per hour. The individual hiring the tutor pays the tutor directly; Southern Oregon University is not responsible for any charges incurred under these arrangements. The SOU Mathematics Department monitors and supplies this list as a service to the community at large, but cannot guarantee the quality of service. If you would like to provide feedback on one or more of these tutors or if you'd like to be considered for addition to this list, please contact Dr. Sherry Ettlich, Chair of the Mathematics Department, at 552-6576 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact Jon Jennings, math tutoring coordinator, at 552-6818, email@example.com.

I majored in philosophy (B.A.) and later psychology (M.A.) but have taught math at a private school for two years, and have tutored math (mostly middle and high school levels) for over ten years, out of my love of mathematics. My teaching of chess for almost seven years furthered my understanding of problem solving. My focus is not on advanced mathematics but on basic understanding of beginning and elementary mathematics, to make it doable and enjoyable as a game, logic puzzle, or mind training.

Algebra with an A. I earned a B.S. Mathematics, Secondary Education, and a Minor in Psychology. I have been teaching and tutoring for over 26 years, elementary to College level, basic math through Calculus. I've taught in the classroom, homeschool groups, and one-on-one in person and successfully over the phone. I'm also founder and tutor coordinator of Top of the Line Tutors - professional tutors for all subjects and all ages.

James Curry (All Levels)
I have an MA in Mathematics, and I can tutor at all levels. More specifically, I often tutor Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Real Analysis, and Probability and Statistics. I also have often tutored High school students. I I have more than 10 years experience teaching and tutoring.
If you write to me I will write back or call back promptly.
I like to not just help students out of the pit they are in, but to teach them to understand for themselves, so that they can do well without my help ultimately.

I am a retired RCC math instructor. I would be available to tutor students during the academic year. I have been charging students $28 per hour for instruction. Thanks for your consideration.
Lorrin Williams 60, 65, 95, 105, 111, 112, 158.
Groups from same class get discount. In my tutoring I have found that it is the hidden/implied knowledge along with the language that is keeping people from understanding. Give me a chance and in 3 hours you will begin to see how easy Math/Algebra really is. Blessings to you.
