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 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.

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.

Reviews for Johns Creek tutors

Our teenage twins were struggling with keeping up in Geometry, according to them every week the teachers were introducing a new concept. We signed them up for after school tutorial with the school, which helped but nightly they were both going to bed stressed out. Today, while my daughter was preparing breakfast she started crying. I sat them down and told them I didn’t want to see them stressing and at this point I will settle for them passing the class with a C this semester just to take their stress levels down and asked if they wanted outside tutoring. They both jumped at the opportunity, long story short. After reading reviews of several tutors Miguel was very responsive and ready to work with them on the spot. We jumped at the opportunity and they completed 2 hours of tutorial with him. According to the kids...it was worth it!! We have already scheduled another session and we intend to continue working with Miguel. Thank you Miguel!! Update to our initial review 12.20.19: Our twins passed their end of semester Geometry finals with 82 and 80...keep in mind they were struggling. We still continue to tutor with Miguel weekly, we on on break for Christmas and will continue to use his services. I sent a screenshot of their GPA to their dad and he said Awesome job done by us and the tutor.

Cassidy was really great! She’s 10/10 recommended. She makes sure that you actually understand what you’re learning before moving on. I was instantly comfortable with her which made it easier for me to focus on math. I would definitely recommend her and plan to continue tutoring with her.

It has been a pleasure to work with Mark to schedule tutoring appointments for my son. Even better is that my son enjoys/appreciates working with Mark. He has helped him work through the pieces he needs help with and in turn his test amd quiz grades reflect the extra help. Thanks Mark!

Julia has been a God send, my daughter truly loves working with her! Highly recommend!

Mr. Patel has been an excellent find for my daughter to help her in her Algebra studies. My daughter loves working with him and prefers him over others she previously worked with and enjoyed. Patel’s responsiveness and knowledge has provided my daughter the confidence and improved grades she desires. Even if you have a current tutor, I highly recommend giving Jatin Patel a try!
