With schools closed, many students find themselves in need of math help. And here at Bard College, many undergraduates, especially international and work-study students, suddenly find that their campus employment has vanished.
We have organized online math tutoring to connect our amazing undergraduate tutors with K–12 students. We aim to provide top quality math (and CS, Physics and more) tutoring without regard for ability to pay (even at no cost). If you are able, we request a donation of $20 per one hour online session, so that we can provide employment to these talented undergraduates. We are grateful for your support of this new 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.
My name is Tina (she/her/hers) and I’m from Tbilisi, Georgia. I’m a freshman at Bard and my majors are mathematics and computer science.

My name is Abby (she/her/hers), and I am currently a freshman at Bard College studying Chemistry and Computer Science. I have previously tutored for Breakthrough Tutoring where I worked with middle and high school students in a variety of subjects -- particularly math and science. I received training through this organization on the basics of successful tutoring and goal-setting strategies for students.
Personally, as someone who was not always such a math wiz, I have had to develop strategies for myself to break down concepts into bite-sized pieces and find new and evolving ways to explain challenging topics. I think this skill has especially aided me in my ability to teach and explain new concepts to others and I would happily apply this skill to help a student who was looking to improve their math skills.

My name is Dante Cardenas (he/him/his) and I'm currently attending Bard College for the MAT graduate program to achieve teacher certification to teach mathematics for 7th-12th graders. I have extensive experience working in Texas with middle and high school students as a substitute teacher, permanent teacher, and tutor in Mathematics, including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. I have an affinity for the Arts, which influenced me to integrate creativity in Mathematics and endorse mathematical language fluency. My hobbies include playing and writing music, enjoying cups of coffee while listening to music, and writing poetry. I am also bilingual with Spanish being my second language.
My name is Rachel (she/her), and I am a creative writing major in my final year at Bard College. I have tutored incarcerated adults as a math tutor with the Bard Prison Initiative for three semesters (advanced algebra and pre-calculus), and have had lots of experience with kids as a babysitter and nanny. Yes, you read correctly––I am a math tutor who also writes fiction and poetry. I have always loved the critical thinking that goes into solving a math problem, and I am a strong believer that the right/left brain divide is a myth. I want to assure students who may feel shut out from math subjects that, with practice, it is impossible not to improve. Math is challenging; it is also inspiring! I look forward to working with you.
My name is Mehreen Kabir. I am a graduate of Bard College. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics with a concentration in Science and Technology. I am working towards my Masters of Art in Teaching Mathematics. I love listening to and learning from my students. In my experience teaching, I notice that students enjoy working hands-on rather than listening to lectures. I am a visual learner so I will draw images to help students see the big picture. When I'm not proving solutions, I do yoga, ride bikes, and bake chocolate chip cookies.
