I loved working with Kara. She was very professional, Responsive, punctual and her was of great quality. Kara seemed to value her work and take pride in what she does. When you enjoy what you do your better at it, and Kara really seems to love writing. I was very impressed with the outcome of my writing project and would definitely use her again. Kara is a very sweet and friendly lady, easy to talk to and she knows her stuff. Thank you Tutor Pros for hiring such excellent staff,.

The tutor is excellent with my child. She keeps the attention of my child and they do fun assignments that the tutor has created in order to keep my child engaged in reading and in wanting to read more and on her own. The tutor will also speak to the teacher and attend school meetings so that they can have a better understanding on what is being taught at school. They also want to get the feedback from the teacher so that they can better assist the student. I have already referred my child's tutor to 2 people at her school. I would highly recommend for anyone to use their tutoring services.

I have really enjoyed having Troy tutor my 2 kids. My 16 yr old son needed a positive role model to help motivate him and keep him accountable and Troy was able to connect and make that happen. My 11 yr old daughter needed her foundation skills enhanced and Troy was able to jump right in and make her feel comfortable. From Day 1 I saw a huge improvement in just their basic understanding of math and was highly impressed. Definitely someone to hire!

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.

My daughter does not enjoy math. This year, as a freshman, she was given an unusual math class (Algebra) where the lesson is to be learned at home via YouTube videos and the homework would be done in class. In theory it sounds like a great idea, however, if you’re partially through a lesson plan and you have a question or if you are confused it’s very hard to continue. Especially in math. Lisa has been my daughters tutor for most of this school year and some of the last school year. She is wonderful!! She connects with the kids so well, she is patient and explains things in a way my child understands. My daughter truly enjoys working with her and it’s nice having her come to our house. As a parent, I appreciate her competitive prices and her flexibility. We’ve tried other places – Lisa is far away the best. My daughter was really struggling. Lisa was the missing link in getting her and keeping her up to speed. I would recommend Lisa to any parent looking for a math tutor for their child.

Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.

    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.
