The value of online tutoring
I’ve been working with students online since 2015. Students love the independence it gives them, and parents love the freedom it provides! A typical online session includes appropriately leveled practice and we ALWAYS save time for fun games and activities at the end!
Specializing in math tutoring
Some of the students I work with excel in math already and enjoy the extra challenge that math tutoring offers, while others need help filling in gaps and building their basic skill levels in order to be successful with their current (and future) grade-level math curriculum. I’m happy to not only provide math homework help and test prep, but I also have plenty of supplemental materials to help strengthen students’ skills in math.
- Elementary: 2nd – 5th
- Middle: 6th – 8th
- High: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, & Algebra 2
Sometimes my students need a little support in other areas besides math. As a former elementary teacher (2nd & 3rd grades) I provide homework help and support to many of my elementary and middle school students for any core subjects:
- Social Studies
Reasons to Hire a Tutor
No more stress from homework help
A vast majority of my clients seek out a tutor because they are tired of struggling every night with homework help or test prep. Let me take that weight off of your shoulders! I specialize in teaching students various methods for solving math problems (including common core or “new math”) to find the method that works best for them! In fact, I have a YouTube channel devoted to just that! Check it out below!
Fill in learning gaps & build confidence
When I first meet my students, most of them tell me that math is their worst subject and that they are “bad at math.” This is almost always due to low self-confidence and a lack of understanding of the foundational skills needed to be successful with their current curriculum. It’s my goal to meet them where they are with appropriately leveled practice, which helps them build confidence, and eventually LOVE math! So many of my students tell me that math is their favorite subject after working together for just a few months.
Provide an extra challenge
Some students just aren’t challenged enough at school! As a former teacher, I know firsthand what can happen when students are bored at school. Tutoring can provide an opportunity to learn things that they might not have exposure to at school. Because 1-to-1 tutoring can be tailored to fit your child’s needs, we can work on more advanced topics.
Experience & Background
Meet Beth Geoffroy, Your Tutoring Bee
Former teacher, now full-time tutor
I began offering 1-to-1 tutoring to students in 2006 as a 2nd job while I was teaching 2nd and 3rd grades. In 2012, I left the school system, and began my own full-time tutoring business, working with students and families locally. In 2015, I began online tutoring and was able to reach students around the globe! I have truly found my calling and my passion for helping students regain their self-confidence, and helping parents feel at ease knowing their children are receiving tailored support that WORKS!
Methods and practices
With each new student, I start off with an assessment so that I can better understand what skills they know and what skills need more practice. From there, I build a custom curriculum that fits their needs. This is the beauty of online 1-to-1 tutoring! We will work together to make each session tailored to your student’s needs. We can balance the time between homework help and extra practice to fill in any learning gaps. If there is a skill that your child is struggling with, I have tons of resources to pull from for extra practice. My goal is always to meet your student where they are, and work to build confidence and understanding!
I’m proud to have a 100% success rate in helping students improve their math scores. Every student that I’ve worked with has reported better grades, higher test scores, but most of all, higher confidence in themselves! Read below to find out what past and current clients are saying.

Here you can see exactly how a homework help session with me works, using tools like Google Classroom. Students really take the lead as they navigate screen sharing, discussions, and assignments.
This lesson uses both Zoom and BitPaper, an online collaborative whiteboard, so your child can work right along with me. The power of technology + tutoring!
