Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.

Met with John once or twice a week over the course of several months during my GMAT preparation. I started out with a 13th percentile quantitative score. After working with him I was able score in the 73rd percentile on my first official GMAT, exceeded my initial goal by scoring ABOVE a 700. I had no formal quantitative training or experience prior to studying; the last math class I took was as a sophomore in high school (a decade ago). Each time I met with John, he was able to go beyond simply correcting my mistakes. He clearly explained the overarching reasoning, strategy and logic behind a certain problem. This is something the video explanations in GMAT curriculum do not do as thoroughly as John. If you're looking for someone to discuss GMAT concepts with in a clear and intelligent way, I highly recommend him. I also studied using curriculum like Target Test Prep, but John helped me tremendously by working through the problems I struggled with step by step and identifying any weak spots in my quant skills. He understands the GMAT and is able to identify the kinds of questions that likely would or would not appear on the exam. Finally, John served as a strong source of moral support throughout a challenging three months of study atop a full time job. When I wanted to try a new curriculum or ask him about tricky questions via email, he would always offer thoughtful feedback in response. His responses were especially helpful when I scored low on practice exams; John's feedback always helped me put things in perspective and helped me get back up and try again. He was very flexible and willing to work with my schedule and make time when needed, often on short notice. In short, I couldn't have done it without him!

It is very difficult to find an AP calculus tutor who knows what here she is talking about. Then I had heard of Arbor Tutors through a friend and called them. The tutor met me at the library every Saturday for 12 weeks and completely turned around my grades. I went from a C average to a high B+ and now I'm starting to get A's. Yay for Arbor Tutors!

Dylan has been a great tutor and has gone the extra mile to develop new innovative techniques/language to help our son blossom. Specifically he has helped overcome challenges with math, word problems, handwriting and multi-step problems. Dylan also communicates regularly with our son's school teacher which is invaluable. Finally as a family with two working parents who travel a great deal he is totally reliable, a great communicator and flexible.

Karen is a really wonderful mentor and tutor. She has been working with my kids for the past six years and she has a great way of setting high expectations while being supportive at the same time. I've seen her work with a variety of different styles of learners, and she seems to really "get" kids, and be willing to meet them where they are. What I most appreciate about Karen is her commitment to working with their strengths and building up the areas where they need improvement. Karen genuinely likes kids - and she enjoys working with them. It has been a huge blessing to have worked with Karen.

Bill helped our daughter in gaining confidence in Math. She is a very good student, however she struggled in accelerated Math class in the 10th grade. Her test scores were in low B, and she started disliking the class. When she started getting help from Bill, she received grade A in all of the subsequent tests, and a 90% on the comprehensive final test. She also received a 90% on the test which half of the class failed. Bill helped boost her confidence in the class and subject immensely. Bill is punctual, considerate and possess good knowledge on the subject. We recommend Bill.

      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.
