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.

After my initial request to find a tutor for Spanish, Billy contacted me quickly with a quote. Within that same week he matched me with a tutor within his organization and we began our sessions. It was quick and easy and now I have a great tutor.

Larry is an excellent math tutor. My son was not interested in having a tutor but now he asks when can they get together again. The confidence levels are slowly rising in my household, there's nothing better than that! We feel very fortunate to have found Larry Wynder on Thumbtack!

Jose is awesome. I'm not sure where he finds the patience, but I'm glad he does. I feel like I'm quickly learning Spanish and improving my ability to have a conversation. His class is everything I was looking for in a tutor.

Erika is a very unique English tutor. By saying unique, I definitely meant in a good way. Erika is not that kind of tutor who only cares about getting things done and being extremely pushy. She is the type of person who's very patient, professional, knowledgeable, empathetic, and really cares about the studying progress. She always tries to understand where a student comes from and incorporate the best teaching method based on the situation of each one. I've been learning English with Erika for three months, during this process, I not only learned how to improve my English but also got better understandings of some confusion I had with the American culture. Thank you so much, Erika. Appreciate it. ♥️

Above Grade responded to my request quickly. Our tutor for Spanish (Lina) has been a joy to work with. When asked if she could reach out to my daughters teacher she did so without hesitation. This has helped with her understanding my daughters strengths & weaknesses. I appreciate her level of commitment to my daughters success.

I took Calculus 2 over summer at GPC. I received an A in Calc 1, but Calc 2 was a little too much for me to handle. George was very professional, clear, and straight to the point when he was tutoring me. I recommend George for any students that need to catch up on materials and even students who has a good foundation because he explain in a very easy way to understand.

I truly enjoyed working with Jocelyn and Laura! Jocelyn was extremely responsive and timely in her responses to my emails. When I had my initial conversation with Jocelyn, it felt like I was talking to a close friend. She got a feel for my personality to match me with the best tutor, Laura! Laura is extremely sweet, patient, and knowledgeable. Although she is a native Spanish speaker, she is still able to explain and break down various grammar rules/terms, which has helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the language. I would definitely recommend working with Laura to improve your Spanish speaking skills :)

Sophia is an amazing math instructor. She understands the needs of students who is struggling therefore, she goes far and beyond her duties to make sure the students needs are being met. She has provided amazing service to my 12th grade son. My son struggled in math causing him to fail his math class and possibly preventing him from graduating from high school soon. After having a conversation with Sophia she assured me that he will pass his math class and graduate on time with his classmates. After Sophia several tutorial session my son no longer struggles in math. She works hard in making sure the child understands how to solve the math problems. She goes step by step with the child until they understands.I can say that my son is now passing his math class and is about to graduate from high school soon. Sophia stepped in at the right time. She truly has taken stress off me and now I know that my son has a bright future ahead. Sophia is the reason why my son is about to graduate from high school. I can not thank her enough. I thank God I found her and I’m truly impressed with her service. She’s the best tutor on here. I promise you. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED.
