Juliet worked with all three of our children on writing, reading comprehension, and speaking. She also helped our oldest with college essays and the application process. Partly because of her, our son was accepted into several private universities. He's now at Dartmouth! She's very creative, intelligent, and takes the time communicate with parents about student progress and needs.

Lynne is great! I was unsure about trying yet another Spanish tutor, but it was necessary as my girls were not doing well with the never ending train of substitute teachers the school was giving them for their class. Lynne brought it all together so that it made sense and my girls could finally get some continuity. I don't know what we would have done with out her. In just a couple of weeks they were on track and their grades were back up where they should have been. Lynne didn't even need to know what the class was doing, she spoke with my girls and started to build on what they knew. It worked and we are very happy.

My daughter is a 9th grader at Point Loma High School. She transferred from a private Catholic school and has never seen the Integrated Math that they now offer in the public schools system. She has always battled math anxiety and I was very worried with the new math being offered. I was referred to Nina from a mutual friend right before school started and my daughter instantly bonded with her. She felt so at ease with Nina and she explained things in a way that she could easily understand. Nina even went so far as to attain a copy of her math book and reached out to her teacher. I am so very happy to say my daughter received an A her first semester and is maintaining an A in her second semester. I have recommended Nina to other students who are having a positive result as well. If you are looking for a math tutor - Nina is the best!

My stepdaughter was struggling in geometry so I looked into tutors online and went with the Elite Home Tutoring because they had the best reviews and prices. They are very professional, very responsive to e-mails, and accomodating when it comes to scheduling conflicts. They were also very honest and helpful when I asked how many hours a week my stepdaughter should be seeing a tutor. I am extremely pleased with their services!

Miss Jenny is an exceptional teacher! We are very grateful to have found Miss Jenny to tutor our children; age 9 and 11 year old. Both of them have received tutoring from Miss Jenny since 3 years ago and their grades / test scores have improved tremendously right from the beginning. Miss Jenny always display enthusiasm for the subjects she teaches. She knows how to modify the teaching strategies according to the students' levels of comprehension. She is always so encouraging and motivating! Our children love her very much and they enjoy each of their tutoring sessions with Miss Jenny. We highly recommend Miss Jenny as a tutor / teacher to any children from Elementary to High School. Mike & Shirley Morris (Parents of Sebastian & Mia)

I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of Elite Home Tutoring tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points. After hearing this story, I called to cancel my Kaplan class & signed up with Elite Home Tutoring, with a special request to work with John. During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Eric at Elite Home Tutoring and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend Elite Home Tutoring. I have no complaints!

My daughter's ACT English and ACT Math tutors provided frequent updates about what has been covered in each session. It’s nice to be updated with my daughter’s learning progress.

Veronika was called on to perform nothing short of a miracle in getting our son to understand and test well in geometry. We'd tried mutiple other tutors and services before I found Veronika. His first session was just before a quiz. Shockingly, he got an A on that quiz! I hoped it wasn't a fluke and we kept seeing before quizzes or tests. He has done significantly better (A's on almost every exam) with Veronika's help! She has given him test taking tips and skills. She follows up with him via email when she challenges him with a problem for the road. She follows up with me regarding how she felt he did during their sessions and recommends more time if she feels it's necessary. I feel that she always has his best interest in mind and wants him to succeed and he feels it too! He just got his midterm back and got a 100% plus an extra credit question correct! We are thrilled with the progress! I can not say enough great things about Veronika! If you are considering having her help your child, consider no more...just do it! You'll never be sorry! Thank you Veronika!!

Baeleigh (our daughter to whom James is tutoring) says, "I love that instead of James just telling me how to do something, he uses visuals and is very interactive in explaining something to me. There is nothing that he can do better, I am happy that he is my tutor." As parents, we like that he is so good at finding how Baeleigh learns best so that he can teach her in a way she understands. He is patient and has been good at keeping in touch with her teachers and also with us.

My 12 year old son was hesitant about using a tutor. Lauri was so accepting and interested in talking with him. After our first meeting, he told me, "She is cool!" After working with him for 3 months this Spring and Summer, he is confident and ready to start the new school year. If he starts to falter, she will be our first call!

She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!

Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!

Wendy was an amazing fit with our son. He needed someone who would be there to teach when necessary and to pull him along when he was capable, but not motivated to do the work. I would whole heatedly recommend Wendy to anyone needing assistance. I assure you it will be time well spent. My son had less than a 2.0 before working with her as a sophomore and his final semester of his senior year was a 3.8. We tried many tutors before and around Wendy, because I wanted my son to have a tutor 4 nights a week and in the end only Wendy connected with him and made a difference on just 2 nights a week, instead of 4. I have given Wendy permission to give my number to interested parties, if they wish to speak to me directly for feedback.

I was asked to remain at a local elementary school even after the teacher I was subbing for returned. With district H R approval, I was asked to take over that class while the teacher on extended leave was asked to do assessment testing for multiple grades upon her return..This was a huge compliment to me and my abilities to create "a sense of community" for the students who had multiple subs and loss of continuity and progress.

    About

    I am a college Math/Music major from Haverford College and I tutor from elementary to high school. Tutoring Subjects: • All basic Math, pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, pre-Calculus and Calculus. For students who want to get ahead, I can help them learn concepts beyond what the classes teach. • Reading, grammar and writing fundamentals. • Biology, Chemistry and any history class from Greek history to AP US History. Music Lessons: • Beginning through advanced instruction in: ~Trumpet ~ Clarinet ~ French Horn • Music theory basics and ear training. • As a multi-instrumentalist, I can help your child find the instrument about which they are most passionate. I've had nearly a decade of experience playing clarinet, french horn and trumpet (as well as most other brass and woodwind instruments) in jazz bands and orchestras. I've coached students and been a private teacher for the past five years. I believe strongly in establishing a strong understanding in music theory but incorporate aspects that keep the student interested in their instrument. I additionally give lessons in film production, photo editing and computer/software use.

    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.
