Carl tutors both my 4th and 7th grade son in English. He comes prepared and excited about what he does. He is very animated in the way he teaches. He is good at keeping the kids' focus when they are tired after school and not always in the mood to learn. He is an all around nice guy, and I would gladly recommend him.

I really learned a lot from Daniel. He clearly knows a lot about the topics he tutors in, and knows how to explain it in a way that's easy to understand. His demeanor was calm and is very easy to talk to!

Lois is a very professional and considerate tutor. She is helping my writing skill and accent. In addition, she has a producer background and share her knowledge and expertise. She teaches me the entertainment business cultures and how to be a strong female producer in US. She is not just an English teacher. She loves to motivate and inspire her students. I highly recommend her.

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!

I am a professor of mathematics and the supervisor of the Math Tutoring Lab at Los Angeles Valley College. Reza is one of the best tutors I have met on any campus I have taught at including University of Utah, Cal State Los Angeles, and numerous community colleges. Reza has tutored at LA Valley College for the past 9 years. Overall he has tutored for 18 years. He is commonly the tutor I hear praised most often by my students. They tell me that not only is his mathematics excellent but he is very clear in his explanation and very supportive with his attitude. He makes my students want to do more math because he makes it very comprehensible for them. Reza tutors Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics. He is the standard I hold up my other tutors to. He shows up on time, teaches very intuitively and my students walk away from each session with him feeling better about themselves. As a person, I find Reza to be a wonderful role model who volunteers many hours each week at the tutoring lab, teaching math to many students on campus.

I believe that working with a quality tutor is the best way to improve your French (unless you can be immersed in a French-speaking environment, that is!). I started with Stephanie in November 2016 and continued until I had my baby in April 2017. She is a great teacher. Lessons are enjoyable and varied, but she doesn't let you get away with poor pronunciation or mistakes! She clearly takes time to prepare for each class and tailors content to your needs and preferences. This way, you can see real progress. I was quite overwhelmed at first but gradually things begin to click and it's a great feeling. Thank you, Stef, I look forward to continuing soon!

She's wonderful! I haven't needed Math tutoring for any of my previous degrees (I have a B.A., Ed.M, and Ed.D), I'm an educator by training, and I have taught math before. So I wasn't sure what to expect, all I knew was I needed help brushing up on my math in anticipation of the new MBA program I'm going to be starting in the Fall. Finding the right tutor is critical so I interviewed/worked with a number of them before I finally decided to go with her. She was an excellent tutor. I felt like I learned a lot in our very first session and her approach to the material made it easy for me to understand. I understand that there have been some comments about language - I don't think that is an issue. She knows her stuff and if you listen to what she says your math will definitely improve. As a math teacher, educator, and now student I fully endorse her.

She's great! She structures the lesson around you and your interest so it makes it easier to catch on to. She's very encouraging and will break down things that are alittle harder to understand. Glad that I have Roxanne as my tutor!

Amy has been tutoring my 10th grade son in Geometry for a year. Amy is not only a lovely person, but is a fantastic teacher and tutor. She goes above and beyond in her commitment to her students, putting so much time and care into her weekly lessons. Her talent for teaching was apparent from the first session and her ease with teenagers is absolutely amazing. She is a no-nonsense tutor and can get my distracted son straight to work, but she also has a great sense of humor which makes the time more relaxed and enjoyable for him. When I hear them laughing during the sessions, it warms my heart. My son told me that Amy explains the problems better than his teacher and he actually understands the material when she goes over it with him. He is enrolled in Algebra 2 in the Fall and I am definitely hiring Amy for the summer to get a head-start on the school year!!

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.

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

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 do Spanish tutors charge?

Nationally, the average cost for a Spanish tutor ranges from $30 to $40 per hour. The cost for a Spanish tutor can vary depending on whether you choose private instruction or group lessons. Geographic location can affect cost; tutors in expensive cities and pricier regions command higher rates than in rural areas and small towns. The experience and education of the Spanish tutor will also affect their rates. For adult education, many people learning Spanish choose to join a Spanish school with tutors who teach group classes and also offer private tutoring for students. Typically these schools charge a monthly tuition that gives students access to a set number of classes per week, with private tutoring available at an additional cost. One example of an average cost is a monthly tuition of $200, which includes five 90-minute group lessons per month. Monthly tuition can vary depending on the school and the teachers. Short-term workshops are also a way to learn Spanish. Students may work with a Spanish tutor and group of other students at their skill level for a short period of time. One example of an average price is $100 for an eight-week course, with one 60-minute group class per week.

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.
