If your looking for a tutor who not only gets results, but is also someone who generally cares for their students, than let me introduce you to Carl. My son is currently having difficulties in geometry. I had used thumbtack in the past for other projects and tried to see if I could find a math tutor on their site. Sure enough, we found Carl. In the short time that Carl has been working with my son, I have seen a marked improvement not only in my sons grades, but also in my sons work ethic. Carl has brought an enthusiasm and fresh approach to teaching my son math. Carl is flexible with regards to scheduling and if necessary, always spends more time with my son than just the allotted hour. He truly doesn’t want to leave until he’s sure my son understand whatever concept they happen to be going over. He really does go the extra mile for his students. I sincerely can’t recommend Carl’s services more. If there is a subject that you or someone you know needs help with, Carl is someone who will take the time and get you where you want to be.

Michael was really patient and kind with our son. We will definitely contact him again for any future math tutoring. He spent a lot of time explaining concepts. He even helped with test taking strategies. We were very grateful for his help!

Clear communication from Joyee and his math tutor. They made the process easy and were helpful about scheduling tutoring times and dates. I'd also recommend them for college and scholarship planning.

Daniel has tutored me through 2 years of college math including, calculus 2, calculus 3, linear algebra, and differential equations. He helped me on a weekly basis with homework assignments and preparing for tests. The way he taught cleared up all of my questions from lecture and changed my approach to math for the better. Thanks to Daniel's methods and thorough explanations, I earned A's in all my classes. If you seek a solid understanding of math and a professional tutor, I highly recommend Daniel.

I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!

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

Reza was my math tutor for several months and my experience with him was very positive! I consider myself very weak in math and Reza was able to explain college math to me so well that I got my first ever A from math in the following course! I have never had anything better than C from math, so this speaks for itself. I recommend Reza highly to anyone who is looking for a good and caring tutor or teacher.

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 is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.

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 a Junior in highschool and catherine has been helping me with math for years now. She is very patient and fun to work with. To be honest math is not my favorite subject, however working with Catherine Brittingham made math fun for me. She made me a more confident math student due to her many hours of practise with me. We did my homework and extra problems she assigned that helped me fully understand whatever topic i was learning. I would highly recommend her tutoring to anyone willing to work hard to get the grade of their dreams in math, because with catherine that A that seems to be out of your reach can easily be achieved, and it doesnt need to be a painful proccess.

    After a couple less-than-stellar tutoring experiences via Thumbtack, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Sol. My tutoring needs were somewhat unusual: after a 10-year hiatus, I needed to reacquaint myself with high school math in order to pass a placement test into a college-level calculus I course. Far easier said than done. Sol was up for the challenge, and knew just how to tackle it. After I had diligently dug out of my old textbooks from my parents' garage, Sol offered an anecdote about his dear friend and and former Cal-Tech college roommate when he was confronted with modern-day high school math. (Sol, you see, is not only an incredibly savvy tutoring professional, but also a retired JPL scientist--and a thoroughly interesting, thoughtful and personable man to boot.) As Sol's anecdote helped to illustrate, the scope of high school math has evolved in recent years, in ways even the former president of Hughes Aerospace, in a moment of complacency, would fail to appreciate. Pre-Calculus theses days focuses much more on the interpretation of graphs, and introduces concepts such as solving and plotting the inverse of linear and fractional equations, which wasn't even taught when I took the course circa 2000. At Sol's request, we set aside my old textbooks in favor of modern coursework that he provided. It was a few months later, at our last lesson, that I was able to truly appreciate how much Sol cares about his students. In his office, I happened to glance at a computer window where Sol had a folder with my name and files charting 'Goals', 'Progress' and 'Notes'. Sol's hard work and investment in my success paid off: on my placement test I scored a 98%--surpassing the score I had needed for calculus I and placing me into calculus II! As Sol predicted, the test had focused quite extensively on those more modern facets of pre-calculus that he had taught me. Now in calculus II, I feel utterly prepared, and only have Sol to thank. *Highly* recommended.

    I always struggled in math. This professor is amazing! His exams were very difficult but, his way of teaching is amazing. If you are not good at math take him ! He will prepare you for the next math level. I took math 125 with with another professor I ended up getting an A in the class because I used his concepts and applied it.

    Khoa is an excellent tutor for any age range. I'm 36 years and a returning student. Years after finishing my degree I decided to go back to tackle Math courses that I shied away from because my degree course work didn't require the higher level math. Khoa specifically tutored me on College Algebra and I was able to get a great algebra refresher to continue on the path of achieving my goals. He is an excellent tutor. He has the experience and the patience coupled with the knowledge. I recommend his tutoring service for all age ranges!

    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.
