    The name of the discipline is 'mathematics' so a tutor of that subject would be called 'a mathematics tutor'.

    Re: Mathematics

    I guess our dear Bhai could shed some light on this:

    Jasum, you also could say:

    Math(s) teacher.

    I am not sure, I guess 'Math' is used mostly in AmE.
