Dea Gad been tutoring my son in Math for a few months now. He had improved his grade and has made good progress. She’s very punctual and responsible. She’s knowledgeable in the subject matter and will accommodate changing her schedule when he has tests. I would highly recommend her. FYI my son is a junior in high school and that’s the math she’s helping him with.

We found Andrea through another site and initially only signed up one of your kids with her. She convinced our other three kids to switch to Andrea. After talking with our kid's teacher, we agreed that Andrea was a better choice for English than our usual tutors. Because we were adding three more kids, Andrea offered ways to save us time and money. She doesn't give discounts, but she is always thinking about ways to meet our needs better for the same money or less. She also offered to set up a custom course for our 4 kids, including our recent grad, to improve their essay writing skills. We were even able to add three cousins, but I had to be the adult contact to make it practical. Our teens are looking forward to taking this course together, and Andrea is designing activities for them to do between sessions so they can get even more out of the course. Because it takes a lot of Andrea's time outside of teaching hours, the pricing is different than with tutoring. For a highly customized program, it's a great deal. One of the surprises we got when we started working with Andrea is that she trained her genius son from childhood to tutor. He's amazing and now works with every one of our kids in math, science, and test prep. He works with college students too, and so we're going to have our recent grad work with him in the first year of college tp get off to a good start. At first, I was surprised at how little I had to do once Andrea and Lander were working with my kids. I almost felt as though something was wrong because I was used to having to do so much to make sure everyone was on track. For this, she does almost everything directly with the students rather than going through the parents. She has them show parents plans and give input and approve, but she does it in a way that takes very little parent time. Simply put, she doesn't need parents' help because she's a real teacher and like other real teachers she works directly with her students. So be prepared to let go and let her do her job. She won't even let you do what students are supposed to do in her system. I've noticed that as I've let our kids work with Andrea and Lander, our kids have taken ownership of their programs and communicate better with teachers. They keep better track of their own schedules and seem more mature. We sought out Andrea because we had a student who hated working with their current tutor. We found a one stop solution for 90% of our tutoring needs. By working with Lander and Andrea via Google Hangout, we have saved untold hours in traffic, money that would have been spent on gas, parking, and eating out, and energy. My kids are more rested, happier, and more confident about school. They are also thrilled with their improved grades, as are we. While I was reluctant to review Andrea for fear they would not have hours for us, she explained that the less time she spent reaching out to new customers when her students graduated, the more time she'd have for us. She also gives existing customers first dibs on available hours. You do have to pay in advance to get times reserved, which is fair. We made a choice to sell one of our vehicles to schedule our kids through the end of the year. I was arid to do that in case anyone got sick, but when I looked the rapid progress my kids have made, I realized that it was a false economy to go with a lower quality tutor. Andrea says that she's only had one student in two years miss due to illness and due to the nature of that chose to make accommodations. She pointed out that the way she works, missing a session is not really an issue and I agree for many reasons I won't list here. We are very happy with how this is turning out, and we're noticeably all les stressed out about school than we were before. Having two fulltime, highly experienced teachers for our kids to work with on a guaranteed schedule is beyond what we'd ever thought we could find. If Andrea accepts your kids into her program, nurture that relationship so it's easy for her to keep them on. This is her fulltime job and Lander's fulltime job, so they tend to hand pick their clients. She'll always treat you well, but to keep her you have to treat her well too. All you have to do is be considerate by respecting the written agreement so that she can focus on your kids and not on you. That takes getting used to, but it's the way it should be. For example, she wouldn't take my brother's kids because my sister-in-law insisted on doing things in a way that wouldn't be realistic for Andrea without her charging a lot more. But, when I offered to be the adult contact, she took them. Right now, they are just coming off a waiting list since their seniors are graduating. So, they probably have at least some availability for summer and maybe some for fall. Grab what you can.

Three years ago, my granddaughter's special education testing report stated that she was significantly behind her peers in most academic areas. We met Carleen with Skills for Success Learning through our homeschooling charter school. Carleen has provided Cogmed Working Memory Training and literacy tutoring. Last month, I received the latest special education testing report from the charter granddaughter's academic skills showed amazing growth. She is now at or near grade grade level with most of her academic skills. The charter school's Educational Specialist was very surprised and impressed with my granddaughter's progress! I can’t say enough about how wonderful Carleen is. She not only is helping Devin with her academic skills but also has helped her with her social skills.

Probably the best math tutor in the inland empire. Experienced and professional, he was able to diagnose my deficiencies in math and immediately start towards correcting them. I worked with Kevin for about eight months and my SAT national ranking went from 71st percentile to 99th percentile. He has bookshelves and folders full of materials on integrated math, algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, trigonometry -- he's proven to be thoroughly familiar with effectively every math subject taught in high school and knows how to teach all of them. Would recommend.

Zoia has been my one-on-one Russian language teacher for nearly a year. At first we tried to connect by SKYPE but we had to downgrade to telephone, average about 4 hours per month. I am very happy with her instruction; Russian pronunciation is not easy and she drills me relentlessly; never allowing a mispronunciation to slip by. She makes the language come alive with anecdotes and grammatical explanations. She knows a lot about art and literature, far more than I do. I always look forward to our lesson. Usually I terminate the lesson after about 1 1/2 hours because I am tired; Zoia's energy seems endless. I also use her You Tube Russian lessons - she has a great deal of material on You Tube (Zoiacalifornia).

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.
