Juliet is fabulous! She tutors both my children, son (15) and daughter (13). One for SAT prep and the other for basic writing skills. The child that requires the "basics" has been identified with an Individual Education Plan (IEP). The children have completely different personalities and learning styles yet she is able to adapt and personalize the curriculum for their needs. She is very personable, dependable and extremely professional. My children absolutely love her. My daughter says, "she should get a million stars - she is exquisite". I highly recommend her services.

Lynne is great! I was unsure about trying yet another Spanish tutor, but it was necessary as my girls were not doing well with the never ending train of substitute teachers the school was giving them for their class. Lynne brought it all together so that it made sense and my girls could finally get some continuity. I don't know what we would have done with out her. In just a couple of weeks they were on track and their grades were back up where they should have been. Lynne didn't even need to know what the class was doing, she spoke with my girls and started to build on what they knew. It worked and we are very happy.

Miss Jenny is an exceptional teacher! We are very grateful to have found Miss Jenny to tutor our children; age 9 and 11 year old. Both of them have received tutoring from Miss Jenny since 3 years ago and their grades / test scores have improved tremendously right from the beginning. Miss Jenny always display enthusiasm for the subjects she teaches. She knows how to modify the teaching strategies according to the students' levels of comprehension. She is always so encouraging and motivating! Our children love her very much and they enjoy each of their tutoring sessions with Miss Jenny. We highly recommend Miss Jenny as a tutor / teacher to any children from Elementary to High School. Mike & Shirley Morris (Parents of Sebastian & Mia)

I'm so happy I came to Elite Tutoring for my families needs. They were a little reserved and uneasy about getting the xtra education and help they required. Eric or Mr. B as the kids call him, has done an exceptional job, at helping my cousins exceed in school and make them feel confident about learning again and that's it's ok to get the extra help needed. Thanks again Mr.B!

I started spanish in a class-group environment and the pace wasn’t just working for me. I then started private lesson with Laura and immediately improved my conversational skills. Laura is very patient and dedicated, flexible in her educational approach so she tailored the lessons to my goal (an upcoming trip to Mexico). Laura is also very personable so the lessons, most of the times, turned into very pleasant conversations in spanish which allowed me to progress quicker. Overall Laura is a fantastic teacher and I highly recommend her.

Tan is an amazing math tutor/teacher. My son has learning disabilities and for him to be successful not only takes clear and precise instruction, it takes a great deal of patience. What makes Tan so wonderful is that he's able to offer both. I would highly recommend Tan - give him one hour and you'll see why. Thank you Tan for everything you've done for us and we look forward this coming year and moving on from Algebra 1 to Geometry!

Mrs. Konie is fantastic!!! My six year old has ADHD and has struggled in preschool and kindergarten as a result. His reading and writing abilities were well below the level required for a student of his age. For three moths, he worked with Mrs. Konie, twice a week, to improve these critical skills. To my surprise, my son now reads and writes. Most importantly, he enjoys the challenges of both. Thank you, Mrs. Konie.

"I found Gene by referral from my aunt. I am a practicing nurse going back to further my education for advancement. Gene recently edited a scholarship letter for me. I was amazed at his ability to manipulate text. He changed every word and the way the letter read and never lost one inference from my original letter. I strongly recommend him." Selam

Lauri has been tutoring my daughter Naomi now for almost two months. Naomi responds very well to her as she taylors the work around things she thinks Naomi would like and would be interested in. She got to know Naomi’s best way of learning and tailored her teaching around that aspect. Naomi is very shy and takes a while to warm up, but Lauri made it easy for her to get comfortable. Her reading has gotten better since, with Lauris constant encouragement and praise for good work Naomi had become more confident.

    I am completing my undergraduate degree (marketing/management) but needed extra support passing the tougher classes like finance and supply chain management. Working full time it was important for me to find a tutor that could help me grasp "the big picture" quickly (after a long day at work) so I could complete weekly assignments on time & Maria has NEVER let me down! If you're looking for a tutor that's knowledgeable, takes the necessary time to ensure you understand the core concepts of the course, and truly supports you EVERY STEP of the way - do not hesitate and hire her immediately. I ended up keeping her as a tutor for other classes because she brings the lessons to life with her knowledge & unique insight. I graduate this Fall & have no gray hair & "peace of mind" because of this amazing lady! She's your personal "educational champion" for when times get tough (and they do for all students) - she's a tutor but I consider her a friend & would recommend her to students at all levels. Kent Every class I've had her help in have resulted in A's & I'm actually using finance concepts all the time now! I look

    About

    What makes me such an effective tutor/educator is that I can relate to students on their level. If they don't understand important material, I am patient in further educating them until they fully comprehend. I have a BA in English literature from a university on the East Coast. I was an editor for over a year and a half reading student papers and dissertations. I am familiar speaking to people with accents as I volunteered at a school for international students learning English. I do my best to make learning a fun and enjoyable experience. My stepbrother was from Russia, and I helped teach him how to read. He is now an avid English communicator who no longer even has an accent. Please contact me for more information on how I can meet all your expectations of me and more!

    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.
