Math Tutoring, Grades 6-10

by George Gadanidis, PhD – Western University – Email:

A research project that provides free online tutoring for students in grades 6-10, using Western University’s Zoom account.


Tutoring sessions are scheduled only when the student needs help, through an email sent by the parent to George Gadanidis at

  • During the school year: usually at 4 or 5 pm on weekdays and 9-2 on Saturdays.
  • Summer: schedule is flexible

Parents are welcome to observe and participate in the sessions but not required.

I can accommodate about 10 students.


I start by asking students what topics they may need help with. I then offer tutoring and enrichment (during 50-minute sessions via Western’s Zoom account) based on the curriculum students are learning (“content”), adding conceptual connections to more sophisticated mathematics (“context”). Where appropriate, I incorporate computer programming activities, to dynamically model and bring mathematics concepts and relationships to life.

Data is collected using notes I make in the online tutoring sessions, annotated with photo images of student work (we do not photograph students). In the sessions, I may ask such questions as: What are you working on? What have you learned? How do you know this is correct? Do you have any questions? Did anything surprise you? In what way? What else would you like to know?

Zoom sessions are not recorded.


I will contact you once you complete these forms. Thank you!
