My name is Kempton Smith. I'm a retired math teacher with advanced degrees in mathematics and statistics. I know math and how to teach it so that students can understand it. I tutor high school math at a public location in Wake Forest, NC. Many of my students report raising their math grades from D's and F's to A's and B's after several months of tutoring.


I tutor all high school math subjects, including pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, (Math I, II, III), advanced functions and modelling, pre-calculus, and AP Calculus. I also help students review for GED math, standardized admission tests such as the Compass test, SAT math, and ACT math. My tutoring focus is to help students with their current work and at the same to build up their confidence and proficiency in basic math skills.


I tutor primarily at the Wake Forest Target store cafeteria. This is on the other side of the store entrance as the Starbucks coffee shop inside the Target store. I am willing to tutor at a student's home in Wake Forest, Rolesville, Wakefield, North Raleigh and Youngsville. There may be an additional travel fee for tutoring in these areas.


My rate for tutoring at the Wake Forest target store is $50 per hour, payable in cash or check at the beginning of each tutoring session. I also accept Paypal - see below. I do offer discounts for students who pre-pay for multiple tutoring sessions in advance. Please contact me for details.


If a scheduled tutoring session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, a cancellation fee of $50 will be due at the beginning of the next scheduled session.


My qualifications include an advanced degree in Mathematics (the equivalent of a Master's degree) from Carleton University in Canada. I also have a Ph.D. in Mathematical Statistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I taught middle school and hish school mathematics in Florida. I also taught mathematics and statistics at the college and university levels in North Carolina. I have been tutoring high school mathematics since retiring from teaching in 2002.
