I have had the priviledge of having several tutoring sessions from MATHMAN and what a great experience it's been. I can't tell you how much I've learned from him and the amount of understanding I've gained from our sessions! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him as a tutor and teacher!

My son has been struggling with his reading comprehension and writing. Kara has been tutoring my son for about 4 months and he has improved so much in class. Kara was really patient with him and professional. Thanks Kara

Marylee has been great with my daughter. She is kind, patient, and focused. She targets the skill areas that need work and develops a specific plan to help each student. I look forward to her continued tutoring this school year.

The tutor is excellent with my child. She keeps the attention of my child and they do fun assignments that the tutor has created in order to keep my child engaged in reading and in wanting to read more and on her own. The tutor will also speak to the teacher and attend school meetings so that they can have a better understanding on what is being taught at school. They also want to get the feedback from the teacher so that they can better assist the student. I have already referred my child's tutor to 2 people at her school. I would highly recommend for anyone to use their tutoring services.

Prior to taking on Troy as tutor, my son was lost in all things Math. In the short while that Troy has been working with him, we've seen a stark turnaround in both my son's confidence and knowledge of basic math principles. Thanks to Troy's tutelage my son feels far more confident going into a new school year in what was previously his weakest subject by far.

Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.

My daughter does not enjoy math. This year, as a freshman, she was given an unusual math class (Algebra) where the lesson is to be learned at home via YouTube videos and the homework would be done in class. In theory it sounds like a great idea, however, if you’re partially through a lesson plan and you have a question or if you are confused it’s very hard to continue. Especially in math. Lisa has been my daughters tutor for most of this school year and some of the last school year. She is wonderful!! She connects with the kids so well, she is patient and explains things in a way my child understands. My daughter truly enjoys working with her and it’s nice having her come to our house. As a parent, I appreciate her competitive prices and her flexibility. We’ve tried other places – Lisa is far away the best. My daughter was really struggling. Lisa was the missing link in getting her and keeping her up to speed. I would recommend Lisa to any parent looking for a math tutor for their child.

Carole has been tutoring my dyslexic boys for a couple years now and they have made amazing progress. They are reading close to grade level which is a huge deal! She is patient, kind, and very engaging with the boys. They don't dread going to "tutoring time" like they have with other tutors. We give Carole 5 Stars!!

    About

    I have a long track history of writing interesting, focused, and persuasive papers for academic and college settings. Over the years, I have developed a keen eye for spotting, defining, and repairing many types of common and special errors typical of student papers, from developing the bare bones of a thesis and layout of a paper to refining tone, word choice, transition of ideas, and more, along with having a good practical use of all the structures associated with writing good, clean academic papers (grammar, spelling, formatting standards, etc.). Throughout my high school and college years, I found I had a good knack for sighting and suggesting improvements for my peers' papers, and each time, the paper got a higher grade. Now I hope to bring these skills to help you. In my past tutoring and editing experience, I have mostly worked with high school and college students, but I am more than willing to work with any skill level provided the individual client is mature, motivated, and prepared to improve their work, even if it means facing some hard facts about some of their writing habits. Each client I have worked with has taught me something new both about being a tutor and being a shrewd freelancer, and I only want my experience in this field to continue to grow. I am more than willing to adjust to your needs, provided they are reasonable ones, and look forward to seeing more clients succeed at their academic goals.

    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.
