My son needed help with Spanish and Algebra. I thought Chemistry might become an issue later on. Eric found him a tutor able to do all 3! Allyssa has been great helping with everything. It was great not having to find separate tutors. Allyssa has been so patient and kind helping my son get back on schedule after his surgery. We love her!

My 13 year old son loved studying with John for SSAT. SSAT is a tricky and challenging test; we've worked with a number of tutors before, but John's pace, accessibility and sense of humor clicked perfectly with my son's needs and taste. John goes through a material quickly, but thoroughly, which helps covering a lot of ground in a reasonable time and makes every session very effective. It takes a number of qualities to make a good test tutor, and John has them all. My son's score improved after just a few sessions with John, but these sessions were also enriching and fun. We recommend him highly. Victoria

Laurel is a fantastic tutor – she is patient, precise and punctual. As an ESL student (my first language is Chinese), learning a new language can be very frustrating. However, Laurel knows exactly what to do and makes the learning process fun. We meet at the Glen Park Library weekly where we read and discuss a variety of materials. She definitely helps me reflect on the reading and become a better thinker. And she is always on time. There is nothing more I can ask for from Laurel. She is the best English tutor I have ever worked with!

Dr. K was not only punctual but also very knowledgeable about the subjects ( calculus and statistic). I was able to pass these classes this summer because of his awesome way to tutor me. I have had tutors in the past but Dr. K is the best among all. I will recommend him to my peers or anyone else.

John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.

Nando is the best spanish teacher ever. He can teach you in so many different ways ! It is really fun. He instantly adapts to your way of learning. I have had several tutors and i am not saying the others were bad, but Nando is definitely my FAVOURITE ! You could definitely pay him more than he is asking for since the quality you get from his lessons is superior to any other private courses in language schools.

Dr. Oh is an outstanding tutor and person who is dedicated to helping others and will go the distance for them. Dr. Oh agreed to tutor our 11th grader for two evenings before his exam, and although it took Dr. Oh 1.5 hours to get there the first evening, Dr. Oh made the long trek to help him the second evening as well, true to his word and to ensure that he fully understood the materials. We greatly appreciate Dr. Oh's dedication, passion and integrity in preparing our 11th grader for his precalculus exam, and helping him understand the concepts behind the equations!! Thank you, Dr. Oh!!!! You are truly a gem!!

I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. The tutor my daughter had was very sweet and very patient with geometry. You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We chose to do the online tutoring. Five stars all the way.

Kathleen has made a tremendous difference in our son's Spanish skills. He's had a difficult teacher in school this year and Kathleen has helped to build this knowledge, understanding and confidence with both written and verbal work. Our son has said that Kathleen has been a tremendous help to him. She is reliable and I've felt she genuinely wants her students to succeed.

Yevgeny tutored my son in Calculus and we are very happy with the results. My son didn't even like the idea of getting tutored; After I convinced him that he needs to get some help, he tried a couple of other tutors; Yevgeny was the first one he was happy with; Yevgeny is a no-nonsense type of person; He is knowledgeable and focused on getting the student to understand the concepts; I would highly recommend him.

Anish is an excellent GRE tutor. He offered to tutor me one-on-one in order to accommodate for my busy school schedule. He is very good at explaining challenging reading comprehension questions in simple yet clear ways and always stop to make sure I understand everything. Also, he asks what I would like to focus on before each session to make sure he covers all aspects that I want to improve upon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with GRE.

Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!

Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.

Viktor is an excellent math tutor. I came to him having not seen any math for eight years, and having not actually learned much of the math I had taken in high school. He started at the beginning and patiently made his way through all of the material I had to cover. Even though I started my tutoring really late in the game for the my test date, he made a big effort to meet with me as often as I needed to and tried to teach me as much as possible in time for my test date. He is really patient and very encouraging, and does an excellent job of explaining concepts that are confusing to people. I have had a lot of math tutors over the years, and Viktor is by far the best one. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Bill helped our daughter in gaining confidence in Math. She is a very good student, however she struggled in accelerated Math class in the 10th grade. Her test scores were in low B, and she started disliking the class. When she started getting help from Bill, she received grade A in all of the subsequent tests, and a 90% on the comprehensive final test. She also received a 90% on the test which half of the class failed. Bill helped boost her confidence in the class and subject immensely. Bill is punctual, considerate and possess good knowledge on the subject. We recommend Bill.

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.
