Jen has been helping me with tutoring for the GMAT. She's one of the best tutors I've ever had! She broke down the test for me and I'm seriously seeing major improvements when I study and in my test taking abilities. She sincerely cares about the wellbeing of her students and only wants the best and for us to succeed. She's helped me with my confidence, verbal/math skills, and over all knowledge of things I don't think I will need but turns out, I do! She seriously knows what she's doing here people! If anyone ever needs a recommendation for a tutor, I would send them to Jen in a heartbeat!

Dr. Fikar tutored my son in preparation for his SAT's. My son was very happy with Dr. Fikar's knowledge, tutoring style, and subject content. My son was a very motivated student, raising his SAT scores by 130 points in about six weeks (we wish we had started tutoring sooner). With his increased scores and high GPA, my son received very large scholarships to three schools, but decided to attend the University of Southern California. Thank you, Dr. Fikar, for your part in helping my son reach his dreams.

Dr. Hilt (Carolyn) was and still is a motivating force in my life as far back as 1983 when at 13 years of age mine and my families lives were in dire need of a Godly and academic education. Her values and priorities to provide not only a safe but effective and esteemed outcome in my learning experience. She has impacted dozens if not hundreds of young men and women's lives as I believe she continues to do because of her love for life long learning or learners. Anyone who chooses to engage with her or the programs she promotes and teaches will be excited and motivated early on and throughout.

I hired Dahee to help my son with Math and testing. He struggled for a complete year with tutoring from another well-known company and hated every minute of it. Dahee not only assisted him in understanding processes and improving his test taking but also made learning fun for him. Now his overall Math score is higher than his scores in most of his other subjects. He has improved in taking tests and enjoys working ahead. I highly recommend Dahee to anyone seeking a Math tutor!

A year ago we made the decision to hire a tutor for our daughter, who was heading into the 3rd grade and was still reading at a Kindergarten level. Even though she was getting one-on-one attention and was on an IEP at her school, we did not seem to be making any improvements in reading. When Meg started working with us, she went back to basics, with letter sounds and combinations and essentially started over with the reading process. Our daughter has worked with her consistently twice a week and the difference in this one year has been amazing. She is now reading Level 2 reading books, sounding out words and beginning to write sentences with the words she has learned. Mid-way through tutoring we moved to online tutoring, which I was a little leery of, but our daughter loves it. Adding the computer into the mix seems to contribute an element of fun to the whole experience. We will continue to use Meg to support our daughter's learning experience and I can't recommend her enough if your child is struggling and you feel like they are falling further and further behind at school.

Mr. Phelps tutored both of my children at various times during their schooling. One he tutored for Algebra I and the other child was assisted in Calculus. He was always laid-back in his approach and motivating to both of my kids. I recommend Mr. Phelps, without hesitation, to anyone needing math tutoring services. He was professional in his interactions, flexible with scheduling and most of all, most beneficial in helping my children acquire needed math skills and gain confidence with those skills.

*** A Life Saver *** Long story short; my Previous Tutor cancelled on us at the last min and I needed a Tutor for the ACT College Exam for my son and Fast. I sent out a desperate plea for help on Thumbtack and I was not interested in " Online Tutors", as they were the only ones available since the ACT & SAT test were a few weeks away. Marlene responded to my Request within a hour and said she would be more than happy to help my son. She was able to squeeze him into her schedule and help. I was so relieved and thankful. After talking to her on the phone we manage to arrange a schedule that would work for both of us. Marlene specializes in ACT/SAT college entrance exams and met us at our local library . After a brief in person interview, she started promptly working with my son. Marlene knew exactly how to work with him; he is a 12th grader and will be applying to college this school year. After their session, we discussed what he learned. It was the first time I have ever seen him so excited about Math before. He told me how Marlene showed him shortcuts, and other tricks to find the answers to the questions on the test. I was impressed by his enthusiasm and would highly recommend Marlene as a tutor. She is very pleasant, well prepared, smart, and knows how to motivate a child. Thanks again Marlene !! Ken B

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.
