Private Tutoring by Columbia Mathematics Graduate Students

Some mathematics PhD graduate students may offer tutoring services on a private, one-on-one basis. They tend to have significant tutoring experiences, with tutees ranging from middle school students to undergraduate students, to graduate students in other disciplines. The hourly fees vary from student to student, depending on the number of hours needed and the topics to be covered.

To contact the graduate students who offer such tutoring services, send an email to

In order to find an appropriate tutor, please include in your email a description of your situation, topics to be covered, hours per week, days available, etc. Typically you will receive a response within a few days. However, note that if no graduate students can meet your criteria, or are not accepting new tutees, you may not receive a response.

Columbia Mathematics department graduate students who wish to be contacted through this mailing list should contact Peter Woit to have their names added to the list.
