We are just beginning private tutoring with Jeremy but our experience so far has been excellent. He was very responsive and informative during our initial communications. Now that we have hired him, he has developed a tailored, step-wise plan to prepare our daughter for ACT. We appreciate that he cares very much about the "whole student."

Amazing. From tutoring and teaching a helpless senior succeed by getting a great score on her SATs and finally gaining her diploma. I couldn't have asked for a better more dedicated and committed person to help me get through my senior year.

He was great for me especially the English speaking. He was my first tutor for the English speaking class, so he was trying to speak slowly for me. The pronunciation is also good.

Laura was so great. Our 9th grader needed last minute help prepping for a Geometry midterm. Laura was super-responsive and engaged, and made time for us the day after we posted our Thumbtack ad. She was able to work through all of the prep packet in a way that made it MUCH clearer than our daughter's teacher had. We are so grateful.

Ms. G is a wonderful math tutor. My daughter in 7th grade was struggling with pre-algebra. Ms. G tutored her throughout the year and she went for failing to a B+. My daughter enjoyed the sessions and felt well prepared after they met. She also helped to boost confidence which has helped in all of her classes. Truly a delight!

In May of 2012, I obtained my M.A. in Secondary English Education, prior to that I earned a B.A. in Political Science, both from Quinnipiac University. Furthermore, I currently possess Connecticut’s Initial Educator Certificate, endorsement code 015 (English, grades 7-12). My tenure as an educator thus far, in particular my full-time position at Danbury High, has allowed me direct interaction with diverse populations of students. This has helped to broaden my horizons, fostering skills both in and out of the classroom, and, furthermore, has helped me actualize my strengths as a teacher. I excel in formulating rapport with my students, consequently motivating them to strive for excellence within, and beyond, the classroom walls. As an individual with ADHD, I empathize with special needs students, and I have become particularly adept at designing curriculum, syllabi, and daily lessons that are meticulous in terms of differentiated instruction. Technology is a particularly useful modality in the modification of lessons for vast and varied needs of pupils. Being of a generation weaned on computers, I am technologically savvy. I frequently incorporate multimedia within my classroom; the result of which is creative lessons that excite and engage students. Inarguably, technology is one of my most powerful tools for conveying ELA content knowledge, but it is not the only one in my arsenal. My undergraduate studies in Political Science provided me with a strong civics background. This, when fused with my passion for the English language, allows me to cross the traditional “subject” borders. My myriad of content knowledge is an asset, for it aids me in the creation of unique interdisciplinary units. ID teaching, in today’s society, is pragmatic because it prepares students for life after school; there, you can’t leave one subject behind in order to work on another. Being a teacher is about getting students ready for the rest of their lives, and in “the real world”, everything is connected. Understanding this, I work tirelessly to ensure that each and every one of my students succeeds, and matures into the best person he or she can possibly be.


I can tutor in English, social studies, science and math on lower levels. I also babysit and have my CPR license.


I offer reliable Math tutoring and possess a master's level in Mathematics from CCSU Math Tutoring. I am specializing in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Statistics, and Physics.


I am a recently retired teacher, who has worked for 20 years, at a private school in CT after retiring. I realized that I did not want to stop teaching. Private tutoring is a way in which I can still practice my teaching passion.


I do private tutoring for students from pre-K through 3rd grade. I'm a Connecticut certified educator who uses a variety of games, books, and manipulatives to make learning fun. I am experienced with reading, writing, math, and fine motor skills. I look forward to meeting your child and getting them on the road to success!

My name is Svetlana. I have a PhD in linguistics and a certificate in teaching Russian as a foreign language from the Pushkin Institute. I have over 30 years of experience teaching linguistic disciplines to Russian and international students. I have taught such courses as speech development, Russian grammar and an intensive course of the Russian language to American, German, Austrian, Chinese, Czech and Korean students. I worked with students from the beginning to advanced level. I also authored a number of textbooks on how to speak Russian properly for foreign students. My approach to teaching is to provide a fun and interactive environment where a student can master speaking the language from the very first class. I could also introduce you to some cultural specifics of using the language in various everyday situations.


I have a Bachelor's in Mathematics and a Masters in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research. I have extensive tutoring/teaching experience, from helping struggling middle school students develop core math concepts to teaching computer science and advanced mathematics to college students. I currently work as a data scientist at IBM, where I have continued teaching by organizing workshops with my team to expand our knowledge.

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.
