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!

This educator is top notch!! Extremely professional, very intelligent] going, comfortable to be around and patient. My son lost confidence due to the actions of his current Math Teacher. It was heartbreaking to see, since he loves Math so much! When we decided to invest in the tutelage of Jenny,we could see that his love for math was returning, this happened within just one month!!! We have renewed out contract with her and looking foward to a continued partnership with her! Bridges Family

A friend recommended Dario to me as an engaging and capable math tutor. I needed extra instruction for my son in pre-algebra/ Algebra over the summer. Dario taught my son for 8 sessions in areas where he especially needed help. My son has personally expressed that Dario is very good at explaining and walking him through these areas of weakness in a way he could understand. Dario teaches in clear, relaxed and confident manner that makes for an ideal learning environment for students. I recommend him wholeheartedly!

I love how you can split your hours between different tutors. I was able to use some hours for chemistry, some hours for math and some hours for English.

Travis tutored me for about two years in my latter half of high school. He provided me all the necessary tools so score extremely high on the SAT and subject tests. He cares so much about his students and their success and goals in life. I'm currently at the college of my dreams, University of Southern California, and without Travis' constant mentoring I am unsure if I would have been given this opportunity. I cannot think of someone more highly recommended in my community to not only tutor kids but also guide them through the trials of growing up than Travis.

We’ve really enjoyed having Lauri work with our daughter in order to prep her for 3rd grade. She’s falling behind in common core math and Lauri is helping prep her to be where she needs to be. Her patience, professionalism and 30 years of knowledge should be able to obtain the results that we hope to see and are unable to provide on our own!

If you are struggling with math, Doug can definitely help you! I was failing my college algebra class and after a few sessions with Doug my grade improved. Even my professor noticed the difference in my work. Doug knows math and knows how to teach it!

My daughter has been working with Diane since about October last year. I have seen such an improvement in her math skills. Math no longer intimidates her and she is confidant enough to do homework on her own. Thanks Diane!!

Matt Klemsz is a great tutor. He's easy to talk to which is great for tutoring and any questions I have on homework he is a great help and helps me learn the material. He has given me great advice on how too shorten my steps in math problems too make it easier too understand and so that it is less complicated.

I hired Gene last summer to help my son get a better grasp on math prior to going back to school. I was not disappointed at all. I had Gene come over twice a week for about 6 weeks or so. By the end my son was ready for 6th grade! The tutoring really helped my son's attitude and confidence going back to school. I asked my son recently if he would like Gene to prep him in July/Aug for 7th grade math and english. He actually said Yes! Gene must be something special if a kid is willing to give up a few of hours each week of his summer vacation for tutoring. Gene is real personable with kids and they definitely like learning from Him.

Brooklyn helped my son with general middle school math and English tutoring over the past year and she has been a pleasure to work with. She is always prepared and has a multi-faceted approach to tutoring, so when one technique for learning didn't work for my son she was able to teach it another way until he understood it. I would be comfortable with her tutoring him in any subject, as his grades have gone up and she has been a great mentor helping him to refocus on school and reach his full potential. Brooklyn also helped him prepare to take the PSAT and he received recognition for his scores from the Duke TIP talent search program. We have loved working with her and it has been worth every penny!

I was looking to get some help with my child and I came across this great tutor. Ashley was very attentive and my daughter really enjoyed it. Her methods were very fun and effective. She was able to incorporate learning into things my child loves to do and teach her new ways of learning to . My child is a great speller now and she is learning new words daily.

Very quick at responding and getting back to me. Although I didn't get to meet with him for a tutoring session, since I ended up having to drop my math class, he was willing to work with me and meet me where ever was most convenient which I thought was very accommodating.

Joshua Fuller is an incredibly talented tutor with a wide breadth of knowledge. He is great with kids and truly understands how to teach others. Compassionate, flexible, and intelligent - I could never speak highly enough of him! If you have previously been unsure about tutoring, go ahead and try a session with Joshua. I can promise that you will be happy with your decision. By far my favorite tutor!

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.
