Founded by Professor Kathy Noble, Noble Tutoring and Prep is dedicated to helping kids find their inner-math talents thereby giving them confidence to succeed and excel in math classes of any level. Studies show that consistent reinforcement and practice of math concepts that are taught in the classroom results in higher grades and test scores. Through our proven small-group tutoring sessions, students will work through homework problems and relate math problems to their own experiences - teaching them the "what" and "why" behind an answer and not just the "how."
