I can't say enough about Michael. He has been tutoring my son for two years. Michael is encouraging and does not allow my kid to give up. He knows how to explain difficult math concepts and keeps my distracted, overwhelmed son on track. I would recommend Michael to anyone who needs solid math tutoring.

Nick was professional, prompt and did a great job tutoring my 13-year-old son, who dreads the idea of being tutored. My son actually had a smile on his face when Nick left (which never happens with tutoring), and said Nick helped him understand his work much better. He’s looking forward to their next session and so am I!

I really enjoyed my tutoring from the Marquettes. They are very friendly people and fun to be around. They're also good at assessing where you are and what you know then using that information to build a thorough study plan.

When my son didn’t finish all the questions the first time he took the SAT, I knew we needed help. After I met Ralston, I chose Strive Academics for tutoring. I entered some information on the Strive website, a tutor contacted me and we set up a time. She came to our home and worked with my son for an hour, giving him strategies for pacing and testing. She also gave him test practice assignments that he could squeeze in daily to his busy schedule. My son felt more confident and comfortable with the math questions and had a better sense of timing the questions. The upshot is he finished the exam this time. Still waiting on scores, but I’m confident they’ll be improved! Strive Academics is reasonably priced, convenient to arrange and the tutor was excellent. I highly recommend Strive Academics!

Arlene is tutoring my 7 years old nephew in ESOL. She is very attentive and kind to the boy. He previously had problems in school with the language and home assignments, had been very reluctant to even go to school and have any social contacts due to his inability to express himself. Arlene helped him a lot, he became more self-confident and eager to learn. She is not only teaching him the words and grammar, she is making sure that he is getting rid of his foreign accent. And it helps a lot with the bulling problem in school. Thank you, Arlene, for the life-changing experience.

After the first session with Dan 2 months ago, my 16 year old son said, "He is the best tutor I have ever had." Enough said. He makes a complicated subject understandable and a little less intimidating. He communicates well with me and is willing to work with us on scheduling when occasionally sports and demanding homework in other subjects interferes with tutoring. I would HIGHLY recommend Coach Dan!!!!

Charles Justus Garard, Jr. PhD I have known Dr. Garard for approximately 28 years and worked with him as a colleague, teaching at the college level from 1989 until 2003. During my association with Dr. Garard, I have observed his expertise not only in teaching and mentoring but also in his writing skills. He was exceptional at proofreading several of my documents and manuscripts, as well as offering other colleagues writing and literary assistance. In addition to his regular college teaching duties, he taught English as a second language on weekends to students in several minority communities in Atlanta. He traveled to China as a professor in English language, literature, and writing, where he served for seven (7) years. Dr. Garard has demonstrated an outstanding talent with the English language and is an invaluable asset to both writers and editors. Please feel free to contact me if I can offer further insight into Dr. Garard’s gifted abilities. Donald W. Blair 404-375-1435

Ms. Janet is excellent at what she does. My daughter was struggling in school and failing. Through tutoring, she pulled her grades up and her confidence rose as well. No matter the task, Janet was qualified. Her commitment to my daughter made all the difference. She studies the AKS, communicates with the teachers, keeps us well informed of session progress, and ensures success by teaching on an individual level. We are very impressed with her work and excited to see further development in our girl. She's the best thing to happen to our daughter's education.

Ms. Judy has been Aaravs tutor for a year now and our experience has been great. Aarav has challenges with writing and comprehension specifically and asked Ms. Judy to focus more on that and I feel he got a bit better at that. She kept it interesting with some current affairs articles that she asked him to work on. Thanks a bunch for the extra help! Appreciate it.

Cassidy is fabulous! Very professional, breaks things down so that the information is understandable. My daughter is in a very tough AP Stats course, thank goodness for the tutoring Cassidy is providing. Cassidy is helping her in ways her teacher cannot. We will continue to work with Cassidy through the remainder of her class. Thank you Cassidy!

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.
