I would highly suggest Michael Davidson as a tutor. I am 43 years old and had been out of school for quite a while, but because of the tutoring I got from Michael, I passed my math GED test with flying colors! He is very knowledgeable, helps you to figure out which areas that you need to focus on the most and explained different ways of how to handle the math problems. He also provided positive inspiration to help me get through the toughest of math problems and cheered me on to the end! Thank you again for everything, Michael!

Déa is such a great tutor and I’m so happy I found her. I’m taking a college algebra course and she really helps so much to the point I prefer her ways of doing the work than my professor. She’s very smart, patient, affordable and is really well with working with your schedule. Hire her! She’s better than the tutors at my college!

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

I worked with other tutors in the past. Blas by far has more experience. His teaching and training methods are very detailed. My grades have definitely improved since working with Blas. I can highly recommend anyone in need of his services.

Jonathan is approachable and patience. My daughter is 11 years old and is currently preparing to take the ISEE (Independent Schools Entrance Exam) in December 2016. This is her first experience with getting one-on-one tutorial help for the language art portion of the test. After just a few tutoring session, she has so much more confidence in approaching the essay portion of the test. Jonathan's methodology teaches her how to systematically approach each essay prompt as well as how to capture the reader's attention quickly. As for the reading comprehension portion of the test, he is helping her to find a pattern of where the test questions would likely be derived from the reading passages. Currently, her reading test practice score improves tremendously. She is able to read the passages and potentially predict the potential areas of importance. In addition, Jonathan also reviews the strategies of how to take standardized test. My daughter looks forward to every tutorial lesson because she knows that she can improve her ISEE test score.

My daughter had a “D” in AP Calculus when she started to work with Ahmed. He had to reteach foundational concepts and within 2 1/2 months she has a chance to earn an “A” for the semester. Ahmed is a patient, highly knowledgeable, effective teacher. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a tutor. We were so impressed with his results, we have him tutoring my younger daughter as well!

I cannot tell you how much Lola helped my 7th grade daughter prepare for her final exam in math. My dughter was really struggling and felt that she was very behind in her math class. Lola is very professional, she was always on time, she has a great attitude towards both her students and their parents, you can truly tell how much she values education. We will definitely be working with Lola over the summer to help prepare my daughter for 8th grade math. I will also be recommending her to other parents who are looking to hire a tutor to work with their child. Thank you for everything Lola!!!

We were fortunate to find Bonnie for our son who was struggling with his math in middle school. My son has a very busy schedule with sports, and it's hard to find tutors who are as flexible as Bonnie was. But Bonnie had no problem accommodating us. She came to our home on-time with a smile and prepared to meet our son. It takes a special tutor to be able to feel comfortable with a new student, and Bonnie was that tutor. My son liked her from the beginning and more importantly, made the work he was doing make sense finally. Bonnie is a wonderful person, always on-time and gets the job done. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great math tutor.

Three years ago, my granddaughter's special education testing report stated that she was significantly behind her peers in most academic areas. We met Carleen with Skills for Success Learning through our homeschooling charter school. Carleen has provided Cogmed Working Memory Training and literacy tutoring. Last month, I received the latest special education testing report from the charter school...my granddaughter's academic skills showed amazing growth. She is now at or near grade grade level with most of her academic skills. The charter school's Educational Specialist was very surprised and impressed with my granddaughter's progress! I can’t say enough about how wonderful Carleen is. She not only is helping Devin with her academic skills but also has helped her with her social skills.

I've been very bad at math my entire life. I flunked algebra three times before I called Arbor Tutors. The tutor was very understanding and nonjudgmental. I can highly recommend Arbor Tutors.

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 am currently enrolled in Math 5 at Riverside Community College, and the level of math is business calculus. It has been almost two years since the last time I practiced math and did not feel confident in my skills going into this semester in order to pass the class on my own. So I started looking for help and found many tutors but none like Mr. turner he is very helpful, resonably priced, goes at your own pace and if you need help after tutoring sessions he can help you via text message. After a couple tutoring sessions with Mr. Turner it became much easier to understand the material. I took my first exam and did well. I’m looking forward to continuing to do well this semester.

Really well put together company. Lisa was very attentive to my needs and found me the perfect tutor! The pricing is also very reasonable, which my parents appreciated. My tutor had the best attitude each day and was so positive. It made it much easier for me to pay attention since my tutor didn't sound bored like my past tutors have. Heard about this company through a friend and I will definitely be recommending it to my other friends.

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.
