Frequently Asked Questions Math Tutoring by Ken Marciel
Do you provide in-home tutoring?
Unfortunately, I am not able to provide in-home tutoring. The number of students that I serve at my place of business precludes tutoring at more than one location.
Where are you located?
All of my tutoring is provided at Sahara West Library, 9600 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89117. During holidays, all of my tutoring is provided at Barnes & Noble, 8915 W Charleston Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89117.
How much do you charge?
$75 for 90 minutes or $60 for 60 minutes. Purchase 10 sessions in advance for a 10% discount. Needs vary, but most students meet with me for 90 minutes, once or twice per week.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Most parents and students pay by cash or check. Payments can also be made using PayPal, VenMo, or Square. Payment is due at the end of each session. Purchase 10 sessions in advance for a 10% discount.
What should the student bring to each tutoring session?
Students should bring the same materials that they carry between their math class and home. This could include current assignments, graded tests, calculator, and textbook.
Do you work for a tutoring company?
No. My math tutoring business has been 100% independent since 2010 and I'm proud to keep it that way. I believe strongly in supporting independent local tutors. While third party services might be beneficial to new tutors, it is not optimal for experienced tutors to give away part of their compensation in the form of commission to middleman companies.
What qualifies you to be an educator in mathematics?
During my senior year in high school, at age 17, I passed the AP Calculus BC exam (administered by The College Board) despite only being in an AP Calculus AB class--the highest math level offered at my alma mater. During my first quarter (11 weeks) as an undergraduate student, at age 18, I passed the third semester of Calculus with a grade of B.
