John Linneball helped me with SAT tutoring, especially in the math sections. The sessions took place at my house every week, but if ever there was a problem, communication was made easy through email. He really helped me and we clocked in many hours of math exercises. Not to mention, he gave me suggestions on what I should work on during my alone time.

John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.

I am super thrilled that Mr. Young is tutoring our son. In this technology induced Math learning environment I felt that my son was learning how to use the gadgets to get the answers right. I am glad to see that with Mr. Young's assistance we are now focusing on learning the subject and more importantly laying the right foundation!

Anish was extremely professional and really worked with my learning style. He motivated me to stay on top of my GRE study, and reviewed my practice exams to pinpoint what we needed to review together. On top of that, he even helped me polish my personal statement! I would strongly recommend him to anyone for private tutoring!

Yevgeny tutored my son for about 6 month to prepare him for SAT Subject test Math 2 and the Math portion of SAT. My son liked his style of teaching - giving small hints to guide him to find the right answer. In addition Yevgeny was able to explain complicated mathematical concepts in simple words. I strongly recommend Yevgeny as Math tutor.

Neal was an amazing tutor. I had a 72% in my summer school stats class at week 3 when I enlisted his help. He worked around my crazy schedule and even came to my house. With his help both from tutoring and with his guidance for my final project, I was able to finish the class with an 89.14% at week 6. My teacher even emailed me to tell me he was impressed with my hard work and rounded my grade up to an A! Neal is a humorous guy, so he made my statistics tutoring both fun and informative which I really appreciated during a very stressful class. I would absolutely recommend Neal as a tutor! Perhaps my only "negative" comment would be that he is ridiculously smart and at times I had a hard time following along with his explanations. But for the most part, he "dumbed" down the confusing material and really helped me bring up my C to an A. Thanks Neal!!!!!!

I had not taken high school physics so when I took calculus based physics at my 4 year institution, I was feeling lost and confused in a class that was graded on a curve and filled with engineering majors. Aaron's physics tutoring made all the difference in the world. He helped me understand concepts I was having trouble with and gave me guidance on my homework when I got stuck. I worked with him before each exam and he greatly improved my performance in the class. I couldn't give a stronger recommendation for someone to work with for physics tutoring.

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.
