Faith is tutoring my child in 6th grade math. He communication is impeccable and she is prompt and on time. She came in with multiple tools and resources to help aide in the process. She is very personable with my child, always asking her things about her school life in general, not just the subjects they are working on.

Ayushe S. tutored my son Cory for the ACT and for biology, chemistry, and pre-calculus. He suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and has a great deal of trouble with social interaction. We had such trouble finding an appropriate tutor fit with him, but then we thankfully found Ayushe. She was patient, warm, and incredibly kind. Moreover, she was able to completely circumvent the symptoms of his syndrome and truly treat him as a person--this was unique to me, because everyone else just gets hung on on how he is different and often end up treating him very strange as a result. Ayushe did wonders with Cory because she was able to pinpoint and emphasize his learning style, manipulating common subject material into a form that was more digestable to him. He did great on all his tests and assignments for the high school science and math, and even raised his ACT score by 8 points! The best part of the ACT tutoring was that I didn't have to buy anything at all: Ayushe had practice tests, formula sheets, and basically everything Cory could have needed to raise his score. We actually tried All Pencils Down before we met her and he didn't really see much of a change. I think that is because most test prep companies tend to focus on teaching "test-taking strategies" that may or may not work for everyone in the class. Also, Cory has trouble speaking up when he is confused so even a small class of 15 people is too much for him when it comes to raising his hand and speaking up. So, tutoring was definitely the way to go. We tried a few different tutors before we found Ayushe. The other tutors were more like a resource for questions, which was a difficult approach for us since we weren't familiar with the test and didn't know exactly what questions to ask. These tutors were best for people who have test prep books, practice tests, etc., and just need explanations for math or science questions that are confusing to them. Ayushe worked better for us because she provided us with everything Cory needed and actually made a personalized timeline tailored to Cory's weaknesses and strengths on the ACT. So, the $40/hour for ACT tutoring was well worth it in the end--especially after all the dead-ends we met with! All in all, I'm very glad that Ayushe was recommended to us. Even though Cory will be finished with high school soon, I am confident Ayushe will keep up with him and maybe even help him when he gets to college if he decides to go with UAB! I am very happy with everything she has helped Cory with and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor!

I recently needed a math tutor to help prepare me for a test to get into Graduate School. Finding Debbie was 'The Best' thing that happened to me! She was extremely flexible and professional and had such a peaceful/clear way of explaining problems to me. I had several 'light bulb' moments and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great math tutor!

About

I tutor 7th- to 10th-grade students in math. I also train students who are serious and dedicated basketball players.

About

I approach math from a more visual perspective as opposed to some math teachers/tutors who will just do algebra for students and expect them to replicate it. I show them the concepts and help them to understand and work through problems with them (if they can't do them on their own after my explanation).

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good math tutor?

Math home tutors are available for any age student, from elementary school to postgraduate studies. Rates will vary based on the tutor’s background, education and experience. To find a good math tutor, first determine your learning goals. Do you need help understanding and completing homework assignments? Are you preparing for the math portion of a standardized test? Next, read reviews from current and former students. Find someone with proven success helping students achieve their goals. If you want help on an ongoing basis, decide what your budget is and identify the tutors who fall within your range. Ask if there are additional fees for travel, as some home math tutors include travel costs in their rates and others charge extra. Ask about session length and the tutor’s teaching style, and whether they also offer online sessions or group sessions. Finally, schedule a single session with each of the math tutors you think are best to see who is the best fit.

How much do math tutors cost?

Math is a subject that’s challenging for many students. Fortunately, home math tutors can help students excel in math by working with them in focused one-on-one tutoring sessions. The cost for math tutors varies based on the type of math, the expertise and experience of the tutor, and geographic location. Pricing may range between $40 and $100 per hour, depending on the math subject. As a rule, the more complex the subject matter, the more the math tutor will charge for the lessons. The cost reflects the math tutor’s advanced studies and the work required for them to be able to teach on the subject. Frequency can also affect costs. Students can buy packages of lessons for a lower cost per session than buying individually. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a geometry home tutor is $50-$60. The national average rate for an algebra home tutor is $40-$50 per hour. For generalized math tutors, the national average ranges between $40 and $50 per hour. More intensive standardized test prep studies and math tutoring average $70-$100 per hour.

How much does home tutoring cost?

Investing in home tutoring is an investment in your child’s future. Home tutors work one on one with your child to address their challenge areas and provide room for intellectual growth that may not happen in a busy classroom. The cost of home tutors depends on multiple factors including where you live, the tutor’s background and education, the subject matter, and how often the tutor comes. Test prep home tutoring is typically more expensive than single-subject tutoring. Here are some examples of average tutoring costs:

  • National average cost for an algebra home tutor: $40-$50 per hour.
  • National average cost for a French home tutor: $30-$50 per hour.
  • National average cost for a geometry home tutor: $50-$60 per hour.
  • National average cost for a math home tutor: $40-$50 per hour.
  • National average cost for reading and writing home tutor: $40-$60 per hour.
  • National average cost for an SAT home tutor: $70 per hour.
  • National average cost for an ACT home tutor: $70-$100 per hour.
