A tutor is using his experience to give private lessons to small groups of students in Brooklyn.
Many families are looking for ways to make sure their children are getting the best education possible, in spite of the limitations from the pandemic.
Jeffrey Hahn, a retired math teacher, is offering tutoring to groups of children in learning pods.
"Kids learn a lot more when they're with each other, asking questions, instead of being alone working in front of their computers," he says. "The group are people who know each other. Parents who get together."
The pods are made up of up to five children. Hahn's fee varies— typically for $200 per student, he will travel to them and offer four hours a week of in-person math tutoring.
"Parents, I think they're very excited, they're ready to go," he says. "It also alleviates their time, because the parents need their own time, a lot of them are working at home."
Hahn says some kids may need extra help catching up because of how abruptly school ended in the spring due to the pandemic.
"We might wind up going back and learning the math they should have been learning in the spring," he says.
Hahn assures that he and the students will be taking precautions to make sure everyone stays healthy while learning.
