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.

Hello! My name is N'Kira Hailey (she/her/hers) and I am a first-year student at Bard College. I am from Atlanta, Georgia, but my acceptance of the Posse Foundation Scholarship has led me to Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. I am planning to be a Psychology and Film Production Major but have great experiences and interests in mathematics. 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. The last math class that I took was BC Calculus, but I prefer to teach and learn Algebra and Geometry. I do plan to learn computer science in college to maintain my knowledge of math and also to learn something new. My favorite hobbies are eating, writing, watching cartoons, and learning new things or people.

Hi! I'm Gabe (he/him) and I'm a junior majoring in economics with a particular interest in math. I'm back at Bard after taking a couple of years off to work, so I'm used to being relied upon to fulfill my responsibilities thoroughly and with integrity. I was fortunate enough to have some fantastic math teachers growing up from whom I learned the importance of presenting material in different ways and guiding students through challenges. I want to make math accessible and (hopefully!) fun for everyone.

Hi! My name is Annie Moulene (she/her/hers). I am a sophomore studying Chemistry. In high school, I loved doing math especially statistics. I was always one of the students that other students would come to for help since I could help breakdown the question and show them the steps needed to solve it. I love trying to connect problems in a way that it become applicable to the real world since that helped me understand and appreciate math more. Some of my hobbies include writing, baking and reading. I look forward to helping you solve those challenging problems and helping inspire a new love for math.

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!
