If your looking for a tutor who not only gets results, but is also someone who generally cares for their students, than let me introduce you to Carl. My son is currently having difficulties in geometry. I had used thumbtack in the past for other projects and tried to see if I could find a math tutor on their site. Sure enough, we found Carl. In the short time that Carl has been working with my son, I have seen a marked improvement not only in my sons grades, but also in my sons work ethic. Carl has brought an enthusiasm and fresh approach to teaching my son math. Carl is flexible with regards to scheduling and if necessary, always spends more time with my son than just the allotted hour. He truly doesn’t want to leave until he’s sure my son understand whatever concept they happen to be going over. He really does go the extra mile for his students. I sincerely can’t recommend Carl’s services more. If there is a subject that you or someone you know needs help with, Carl is someone who will take the time and get you where you want to be.

Mike is so very patient with my son and takes the time to explain things in a way he can comprehend. Mike also gives him tips to use in class that will help him remember formulas etc. that are very helpful. I'd recommend him as a math tutor hands down.

Daniel was very professional and went above and beyond to give the tutoring help I needed in a somewhat obscure math topic, which included him spending time researching and working through the problems before the tutoring session to ensure that he could answer all of my questions. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a quality math tutor who invests himself in your success. Thanks again for all the help Daniel!!

I had never been able to keep with my math teachers. Luckily, my friend recommended Mrs. Toutoungy to me. She was a very nice teacher that always made sure I understood the material, even if that meant explaining it to me multiple times in different ways She never gave up on me and her help ultimately ended up raising my grade!

It was a simple job. Six grade math. Most tutors either gave us the runaround or just didn't call us back. Eric at elite made sure we were satisfied from the first free trial to the session before my daughters test. Very well done

Im a student from Los Angeles Valley College who has been getting help from this company with Math and I couldn't be happier. I been working closely with Reza now for months for my Math 115 and 125 classes. This man is truly amazing and incompatible at what he does to say the least. He's one of the most patient, understanding and flexible tutors I have ever came across. He has the ability to teach Math like most can't and to motivate you to get through your biggest struggle which in this case Math happened to be mine. If it wasn't for Reza's positive attitude and constant push I would never get through my classes. If you are in anyway struggling and Math is challenging for you I would recommend for you to reach out to this man and I promise you would see unremarkable results. Beyond being and amazing Math tutor he is an amazing person. Thank your Reza for all that your help and for always believing in me.

Rachel is the most incredible math tutor! With her help, I was able to bring my grade up from an F to a B. As a college student who still struggles with math, I was extremely frustrated until I began working with Rachel. She helped me gain a better understanding of mathematics overall. I am extremely grateful for her ability to teach me something I thought was impossible for me to learn.

Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.

I was having a very rough time with calculus. It was the third time I took the class. I contacted Arbor Tutors and they provided me with a wonderful calculus tutor who is able to explain everything very patiently and fill in the gaps that I had. Excellent service. I wish every company was run this well.

I always struggled in math. This professor is amazing! His exams were very difficult but, his way of teaching is amazing. If you are not good at math take him ! He will prepare you for the next math level. I took math 125 with with another professor I ended up getting an A in the class because I used his concepts and applied it.

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.
