Professor Lunsford was my Statistics teacher at the University of South Florida. I also went to him for private tutoring. He explained concepts to me in way that was easy for me to understand. Dr. Lunsford is very knowledgeable and an outstanding educator. He made learning a lot of fun and showed genuine concern for his students. He always was passionate about his career and it showed. I wish all professors and tutors were more like him! I graduated in 2011 and live in Washington State. Even on the opposite side of the country he has been a wonderful mentor!

Mr. Perry was very helpful. He took the time to call me and explain all information he felt I needed to know before I had even decided to hire him as my daughter's tutor. He has been very patient with me in setting up everything to prepare for online tutoring. He is very qualified to help my daughter and seems to genuinely cares about the students he helps. I am very pleased with who I chose and am confident that my daughter will get the help she needs.

I got Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. The tutoring manager walked me through the whole process and set me up with TWO tutors. They also said I could change tutors at any time, but I didn't need to. I was accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke). I used the application services also (they reviewed my essays).

Whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Carolyn Hilt as an excellent teacher/tutor. Very patient. kind, and understanding as she imparts not only knowledge but also builds self-confidence of each and every student. My granddaughter attended and graduated from Son Haven, the Hilt's homeschooling school where each child is taught as an individual with individual learning needs. Wonderful person as well as great teacher!

Cheryl tutored me in College Algebra and I went through many tutors before her and never really understood it but she helped me really get to the core of why I was struggling. She is very dependable and extremely flexible. She is willing to work around your schedule to make sure you understand the subject you need help in. Overall she is an awesome tutor and I highly recommend her for any of your needs.

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.

My son had fell behind in third grade and we were seeking a tutor that would help catch him up and prepare him for the fourth grade. Hiring Kati from Bullseye Learning was a God sent. Not only has my son excelled in fourth grade courses, he has also gained confidence and skills sets, I feel he would not have gained in a normative classroom. So we decided to hire her full-time. I am both relieved that my son is learning by leaps and bounds and grateful for the commitment that Kate at Bullseye Learning has displayed in her efforts in educating of my son. Thanks-Bullseye

John is thorough and prompt. He works hard in advance to be prepared for the lesson. My son enjoys working with him. Once when he wasn't available, he still cared enough to help us via the telephone with the math problems.

Hello, My name is Lakeesha and I am a ELA teacher that is transitioning out of the classroom. I enjoy teaching, but would prefer to do so in a less traditional setting. I love to help learners achieve their academic goals. I have school aged children, so I understand how hard it is for parents to sit down and help their scholars with this crazy common core work. I understand what the state is looking for when it comes to standardized testing as well as experiencing the FUN of learning. I hope I can be of assistance to you in the area of academics.


I am a high school student who tutors anyone in math or science! My goal is to help you improve your grades, and I am very patient.

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.
