Bee Schlotz has been workng with my 5th grader for the past year and she's great. My son was missing some important concepts and experiencing math anxiety before he started meeting with Bee. She specializes in working with neurodiverse kids and is extremely patient and calm. My son says "she just knows how to explain it so it makes sense!" She's based in the Oakland but offers Zoom as well.

I also would like to recommend Bee. My kid has dyscalculia and has developed a pretty severe math anxiety. Bee has helped my kid build confidence and to enjoy math. Bee knows how to explain things in such a way that it really clicks. My kid now is happy to work on math homework and feels much better about the subject overall.
I am writing to give a high recommendation Bee Schlotz as a tutor for Math. My child has dyscalculia, and worked with Bee in test preparation for a high school test (HSPT). Bee is extremely patient and skilled at figuring out what the student is understanding, and where the gaps in knowledge are. For us, this was essential, as my child can often seem as if they understand, but then will fail tests. Bee went over concepts carefully, and consistently, and my child's confidence grew. Now a 10th grader, my child is attending their first choice high school. I highly recommend Bee Schlotz and Absolute Values Educational Services!
