Working with Lisa-Beth was such a pleasure! Very kind, very professional, and such a diligent worker. I really felt like she cared about what I wanted as a customer. We both live on different sides of the city and she was very accommodating with meeting me at a midway point that would be convenient for the both of us. I'm a college student and even though I have not yet graduated, I really wanted to have a professional resume that I could 'wow' future employers and networking opportunities with. Upon our interaction Lisa-Beth listened intently and really got a feel of how I wanted to portray myself as a professional, and she translated that perfectly onto my resume. I couldn't be happier with the finished product! One thing that I really liked was the fact that Lisa-Beth kept in contact throughout our whole transaction, be it through email, phone, or text, she was always reachable and made sure to keep me updated. I'm very thrilled to have stumbled on to Maverick Consulting and I will definitely be using Lisa-Beth and her amazing talent in the future!

Carl was referred to us by a very happy, satisfied student. He has been tutoring my Junior daughter in Algebra 2. She has always been challenged in Math and saves all homework till last. Carl has been a "spark" in getting her to not "hate" it so much. He comes prepared, energetic and dedicated to gaining a clear understanding of the topic, while interjecting humor into this very dry subject. Carl has been instrumental in my daughters improved Algebra 2 grade! Hurray!

Lois is the most helpful teacher/mentor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She is flexible about times and has helped me with many different writing and speaking projects. Lois has vast experience in many areas and knows how to make projects and learning enjoyable. She is willing to share her knowledge and insight. I am so glad that I hired her and will continue to go to her for all my speaking, writing, acting, film and academic needs. You will get custom help for a reasonable price- she is an amazing tutor.

I was struggling with calculus 1 at SMC and felt very intimidated before Daniel came along. He helped me understand what calculus was all about and always explained new concepts clearly. Daniel went above and beyond his duties and was always on time. I ended up with an A and would highly recommend Daniel to any student with math needs.

CRAZY AMAZING!! Very patient, outstanding and incredible when it comes to explain it to the student. Love the way Addy does 1 on 1's and also the way she encourages us as students to do it ourselves. She's abosulutely someone you want to tutor you or your child. Trust me you will not regret it. I've seen her a few times and I'm a few assignments away to finishing my class so I can graduate soon!

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.

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!

Cindy Chanin understands the testing and admission process like no other. She has an extensive professional background and helped us navigate the high school admission process for our daughter, like a Ninja! Cindy invested her time and energy into our daughter and took it upon herself to get to know her. She was able to decipher what kind of learner she was and which of her tutors would be a good fit for her. For the weeks that we worked with Rainbow EDU, Cindy called everyday. She wanted feedback about the tutoring sessions and wanted our daughter to feel confident and empowered. Cindy is a student advocate and coach. Much, much more than a tutor. This is a full service operation...the real deal. Cindy Chanin...Rainbow EDU...I just lucked out...hope you do too!

I hired Ahmed for Math tutoring for my son who is taking the PSAT and SAT this coming fall. He had rave reviews about Ahmed. Ahmed was patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and able to explain the concepts to my son in an absorbable manner. I will continue using him for the rest of my son's high school math needs. Highly recommended.

    I am very happy with the tutoring we received. They have thousands of Tutors all over the country.  They can come to your house or offer online services. We tried both and I prefer online. Both are excellent choices.

      “Paulina is truly an exceptional tutor! This could end up being a very lengthy review...She worked with my daughter during her last year year of middle school and hopefully will continue to assist her in high school if tutoring is needed. Paulina tutored her mostly in mathematics and science ,but also assisted her with other challenging subject matter as well.  Paulina is very bright indeed but is also kind, warm hearted, and naturally intuitive. She was able to tune-in to what my daughter needed consistently. Whether study breaks were needed, emotional guidance if frustration levels were high with the subject matter, or simply a change in venue...Paulina knew how to tackle the specific challenge.  Paulina is a true gift to the teaching profession. My daughter and I feel so blessed that Paulina has been there through the challenges of a highly academic middle school.”

      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.
