As the pandemic continues, many students find that their education has been disrupted. Some struggle with classroom math, and others desire to enrich their studies. Here at Bard College, our undergraduates have transitioned well into online learning and back. They are ready and eager to work with younger students and guide them in math.

We have organized online math tutoring to connect our amazing undergraduate math tutors with K–12 students. We aim to provide top quality math (and CS, Physics and more) tutoring at the affordable rate of $25 per one hour online session. Please request financial aid, if needed. We are grateful for your support of this venture.

Hi, I am Tony Nguyen (he/him/his), a freshman at Bard College. I am trying to be major in Math and Computer Science for my undergraduate. I have some experience with teaching students in high schools and middle schools such as Algebra or Precalculus since I was in middle school. My hobbies are learning new things and solving coding problems. I would like to have a new experience with teaching Math online on the whiteboard too with the Math Circle.

Hello! My name is El Capone and I am a sophomore at Bard College, majoring in Environmental and Urban Studies, and Human Rights. In high school I took all the math classes I could, right through AP Calc, and worked plenty with younger kids through camp counseling, and personalized childcare. Math was never something that came naturally to me, it's something I had to work hard at and develop strategies so that I could succeed and take the classes I knew I could challenge myself with. Now that I have completed high school, I'd love to share the tips and tricks I learned along the way and develop together with anyone who wants to learn!

Hi, My name is Nafis. I use him, his pronouns. I am a freshman at Bard College. I am studying Maths and Physics at Bard. I have lots of experience in teaching especially with children. I believe in a hands-on learning experience for any kind of science. My objective is to make math fun and approachable for all students. My hobbies are doing physics projects, coding, robotics, photography and traveling.

Hello, my name is Josef and I'm a sophomore studying math and computer science. I currently tutor calculus I and II at Bard, but my experiences also include working at children's museums and teaching first graders as a teachers assistant at my synagogue's Sunday school.

Hi! My name is Javed Zahidi and I am a sophomore at Bard College. I am an international student from Afghanistan and my acceptance of the Afghan refugee scholarship has led me to Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. I am planning to be a computer science and Math Major. I have background work in tutoring children of all ages, from those who just started school to those who are about to graduate high school. I have also remained a math tutor in my previous institution, the American University of Afghanistan. Some of the math classes I would list are pre-algebra, calculus, geometry, trignometry. My favorite hobbies are writing, playing soccer, painting, solving math problems and working on data sets. I want to make math more fun and applicable to students.

Hey, I am Nasif Hossain (he/him/his), a student at Bard College. I am from Bangladesh and hoping to major in Math and Computer Science. I have been teaching maths to my classmates and kids during most of my high school years. I took maths in my A levels which is basically AP Calc and other AP math classes combined. My favorites are Algebra and Calculus. I am delighted to have the opportunity to communicate with my students to help them learn cool tricks to solve complicated problems easily, while having a complete understanding of the theory behind it. I look forward to meeting you!

Understanding the world around is an integral part of understanding who we are ourselves, and that is the core desire all of us share. Mathematics, being the language of nature, is something we cannot avoid. Why would we want to avoid this beautiful tool anyway? I, being a math enthusiast, would try to impart my realization of the beauty of mathematics through thinking about mathematical concepts and problems together. Life is beautiful, and so is mathematics. Let's dive deep into it!

Hi, I'm David (he/him). I'm a first-year planning to major in math. I tutored math throughout high school, and I love doing math for fun. I also love listening to music and I think economics is really interesting.

Hi, my name is Freddy Coronel, I'm sophomore studying math and physics and following a pre-medical path at Bard College. I have experience with teaching and have been a camp counselor since my freshman year of high school. I have two younger brothers who I have tutored in all subjects. I hope to make math fun and interesting like how I find it!

Hi! I am Prottoy Samir and I am sophomore at Bard, as of 2022, intending to major in Physics and Mathematics. During my high-school days, I found myself fascinated in participating in many math competitions and Physics Olympiads. A large part of my critical thinking skills have developed through these experiences. So I took myself to spreading my knowledge to others by being a tutor myself. I have taught middle-school and high-school students and I also run a side project where I am aiming to create a YouTube channel containing video-lectures on Physics topics in simple and understandable language. Check it out at Physix Daily.

Skye is a junior math major who recently published in the field of combinatorial representation theory and has massive passion for geometry. You can also find Skye eating a bagel, dancing, making origami, playing violin, or reading chinese literature.
