Parents love our courses

Passed this along to several friends

Father of a fourth grader

My son really enjoyed it and he usually hates math. Ted, the instructor was great. My son is looking forward to their next session on Friday and we signed him up for a session on Fractions as well. I've also passed this along to several friends who are interested. Much appreciated especially now. This is a great resource/service.

Teacher helps her understand concepts

Mother of a third grader

Thank you for emailing. So far, it has worked out well for us and our daughter. She says she really likes her teacher, despite the concepts being brand new to her. She feels challenged by some of the work, but I think that is the point and the teacher helps her understand the concepts.

Super patient teachers

Mother of a second grader

Kendra was wonderful. She was super patient with my son and he just took his milestone test on fractions at school and said "it was SO easy!" Kendra really helped get him up-to-speed on fractions.

Helping my son stay focused

Mother of a 3rd Grader

Thank you so much. My son has ADHD so keeping focus can be challenging for him. We really appreciate your support. I feel like he is really making strides.

Difficulty level was spot on

Parent of a 5th Grader

My daughter enjoyed the class. The level of difficulty was spot on. No complaints!

Meet the Teachers

Tamara Thovtrup

Originally from California, and after a few moves around the country, I am now living just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. I am a mom of two children and the wife of an airline pilot. I have been teaching online for the past 3 years and have even traveled to meet my students. I have loved math since middle school and I would love to help your child find a love for math as well.

Theodore Korolyshun

I was born and raised in Connecticut in a small city called Derby, before attending the University of Notre Dame and moving to Chicago for two years after graduation. It was here where I began teaching, and especially enjoyed helping students (and some teachers!) with math.

Kaia Buhl

I'm an energetic teacher. I enjoy seeing the "I got it" moment of every student through their personal achievements. I adapt to different learning styles and have learned to quickly come up with a new example so that the student is able to understand the concept being learned at the moment.

Requirements for the class

  • A working device (laptop, tablet or mobile) with working mic and speakers

  • High-quality internet bandwidth to support video calling

  • 45 minutes per class apart from the assignments

Have questions?

  • Who will be my math tutor?

    Our math teachers are certified educators with years of teaching experience. Each of them has been hand-picked for their innovative teaching styles, the ability to tailor their lessons according to different learning needs and their main superpower - making math fun.

  • Will math tutor help my child with their homework?

    The classes will be conducted on the specific topics independently of the progress in school. Math tutor will therefore not be able to assist your child with their homework.

  • Do I need to accompany my child for the class?

    You can accompany your child in the 1st class to build comfort. You can also accompany the child in the subsequent classes in case you have any specific input regarding your child.

  • Do I need to be ready with anything for this class?

    Yes you should have a working device with webcam, mic and speakers. You can keep blank sheets and pen (or whiteboard and a marker) handy for practice during the class.

  • How do I know whether its safe for my child to talk to math tutor?

    Your child's safety and privacy is our primary concern. We design the courses to ensure that we are not collecting any personal information from your child. We also do a background verification for all the tutors to ensure that your child is talking to a reliable person.

  • Is the live video recorded?

    Yes the videos will be recorded and will be shared with you after the class so that you can refer to any concept being taught in the class later on as well.

  • Will math tutor share the video after the class so that we can refer to it again if required?

    Yes the link to the recorded class will be sent to you in a mail after the class is over.

  • How do I know that the recorded video is not being misused?

    The recorded video will be used by the child for reference after the class is over. We also use the video to ensure that the class was conducted as per our guidelines and standards. We delete the video after 6 months from our servers.

  • Will I get my money back if my kid doesn't benefit from the class?

    There is a free trial available for the 1st class. You can cancel within 24 hours after the 1st class and no money will be deducted. If you cancel after the your 1st during the course, we will deduct the amount for the courses attended and will refund the remaining amount.

  • How can I cancel the class?

    You will get an email after every class to provide the feedback. If you don't like the class or course, you can tell us to cancel the class in the same email. Please ensure that the classes are canceled at least 24 hours in advance.

  • What if the math tutor is not able to complete the topic within a class?

    In case the curriculum is not covered the class might run a few minutes longer.

  • What if Math tutor is not able to finish in the stipulated classes? Do I pay more for next classes?

    We have designed the courses in a manner that they will get completed within the number of classes mentioned for every course. If in case of any unforeseen scenario, the classes get extend beyond the original schedule, Math tutor will conduct the remaining classes as well. There will not be any additional fee for any extra class. Parents will be informed via email about such events.

  • How long will be the class?

    Each class will run for almost 45 minutes. In case the curriculum is not covered the class might run a few minutes longer.

  • How do I schedule a class with Math Tutor?

    Its quite simple. You just have to select the course and enrol in it. SplashLearn will then match you with the tutor who is running the course.

  • Can I reschedule the class?

    You will not be able to reschedule the class since it will be a group class consisting of a batch of 2-5 students.

  • Can I choose a math tutor?

    You have to enrol in a course and you will automatically be matched with the best tutor who is taking that course. You will not be able to choose a tutor at this moment.

  • Is there a math tutor who has expertise in teaching special kids?

    We are in process of building a separate set of courses for special kids. You can help us by letting us know your specific needs which can give a direction to our team building and content designing teams. Please send an email to tutor-feedback@splashlearn.com
