Nicolas worked with my son on his high school math. My son was having a terrible time in his classes, and Nicolas acted as a guide and tutor though the years. He was very patient and understanding, and always arrived on time for the tutoring sessions. In the end, my son wound up with A's and B's in the classes, and was accepted to his first-choice college. Thanks, Nicolas!

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.

Marc tutored my son in French for several years while he was studying for the Brevet and the Baccalauréat at the Lycée Français La Pérouse in San Francisco. I doubt that my son could have passed these exams without Marc's help. Besides being a native speaker of French, Marc's training is in language and translation, and so he also knows the mechanics and methods of teaching. He also always strove to make the lessons interesting by introducing different topics and trying various teaching methods. I would recommend Marc unreservedly to anyone looking for a French tutor.

    I am a student at UC Davis, majoring in Spanish. Andry has been an amazing tutor. During our sessions, she helps me with my essay compositions and projects. She is also very responsive and will go out of her way to correct your papers on her own time. Thanks to Andry, I feel confident in the work I submit and I have been able to stay on track with all of my assignments. Thanks Andry, you are the best!

    Jacques responded to an ad I placed on Thumbtack for a math tutor for my 7th grade daughter. My daughter wanted to advance in math over the summer. Her goal was to do Algebra 1 math in 8th grade. It was very apparent in our first meeting with Jacques that he was going to be exactly what she needed to excel. During our initial phone conversation, Jacques asked a lot of questions in an effort to get to know what my daughter was trying to achieve. Our first session was free of charge, which I really appreciated. It was a "lets get to know each other" meeting to make sure that their personalities matched. They worked 3 times a week during the summer and my daughter LOVED IT. Jacques is a natural teacher. He has a magical way of explaining complex concepts. He gave her concrete examples of how the math she was learning applied to the real world. His positive and encouraging manner made it easy for my daughter to get excited about what she was learning. Jacques is one in a million. If you are lucky enough to have him respond to your ad, look no further. You won't find anyone better. I can't speak highly enough about him. He is a lovely man and you won't find a better math tutor. He's the best. Oh, and thanks to Jacques, my daughter made it into the Algebra 1 class. Yay!

        Dave helped supplement my calculus 3 course and he is very knowledgeable in this advanced subject. I have had four tutoring sessions with him so far and will continue to have them with him till the end of the semester. What went well is that he is very clear in his descriptions of the subject matter that we are describing, and as we go over examples he clearly sees mistakes that I make.

        Triton tutoring specializes in one-on-one, in-home math tutoring. Unlike most "tutoring" services, our career tutors do things the right way: Our tutors will tailor lessons to the students' learning style and individual needs, utilizing proven techniques to facilitate deep understanding of the concepts required. Students turn to tutoring because they can't understand math in the context of a lecture format, where the instructor attempts to impart knowledge through memorization. Our tutors focus on math SKILLS and avoid memorization all together! Students excel at learning when they DO the math, through structured trial and error, instead of just HEARING IT!

        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.
