Seeking math tutor for bright 4th grader

We’re looking for a tutor who can come over 1-3 times a week, for about an hour each lesson, and help her both learn math concepts in general (hopefully this can be made fun, interesting, or at least engaging) and help her do her homework (might be less fun!).


She’s in live in-person school two days a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) at Coram Deo Academy and we are especially looking for someone who might be able to come over Tuesday afternoons and ideally at some point during the day on Wednesdays.


We’re looking to pay about $20-25 per hour.
