    When working with Alex, she is always willing to slow things down and take apart the problem to explain it in a way that makes sense to you. She tailors each session to benefit the student most and focuses on trying to identify this disconnect between the student and content. Something that was especially helpful to me was when she would have me do the problem on my own and verbalize each step out loud which helped me to catch my own mistakes. Along with that, she is able to break down complex problems for you and help you to learn how to attack them in the most efficient way. And she does it all in a super encouraging way!

    Maggie is an excellent tutor! She goes above and beyond to make sure she's prepared to help, and thinks outside of the box to come up with ways to help with comprehension. She really helps get to the root of the problem, rather than just explaining individual concepts. Overall, I definitely came away with not only better grades, but a better understanding of the material overall.

    If you want help understanding high school or college level math, look no further than Mathical Enterprises. We have provided top notch tutoring services for students in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus 1, 2, and 3. We also teach lower level Accounting and Finance. While our company does enjoy meeting math clients face-to-face, our professionals prefer to use a more technologically integrated approach to learning. We use free software to teach remotely, saving us time and saving you the costs of travel. Our method is a little unorthodox, but we believe you will enjoy it.

    Hi! I am Gangadhar, and I am providing online/offline tutoring in Math for XI , XII, and their competitive exams, like IIT, EAMCET, AIEEE, BITSAT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, DAT, etc. for graduate students. I have 11+ yrs. of tutoring experience, and I've been tutoring online for around two years. I am working as a lecturer in a private college. I provide online tutoring via Skype or Yahoo Messenger or voice chat and by using a digital whiteboard. All my sessions are highly interactive and personalized one-one sessions. I have started this to help students who really need help in Math. My tutoring pedagogy involves teaching the fundamentals, and I believe in the principle of: "Learning fundamentals ensures success". I have also written books for SAT, EAMCET, AIEEE, Math, etc. Many of my students have scored very good grades and won scholarships, etc. If you are interested, send me an email. Skype ID: freedhar Thanks and regards.


    Recently, I moved here at Des Moines, Iowa, this year, from one of the Micronesian islands where I worked for two and a half years as a math tutor for both high school and college students. Assisting students had increased my knowledge in these following math areas: * Pre-Algebra * Algebra I * Algebra II * Trigonometric * First-Level Statistics As always, I aim to motivate students to strive to succeed in their math classes by closely conducting one-to-one or by group tutoring.

    My name is Kelly Best, and I love tutoring. I'm 18 and have many references and tutoring experience. I'm going to go to school for psychology but enjoy many school subjects! I prefer 10th grade and under, so I can be 100% confident in my tutoring. I won't take on the student if I didn't think that I could make a large educational impact.


    I am a senior in mechanical engineering. I am very good with math (at all levels), physics, and chemistry. I am available after 1PM most weekdays and weekends for lessons.

    I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Voice and Music Education from Simpson College. I am also a licensed teacher with the State of Iowa with endorsements in Music, Elementary Education, and English as a Second Language. Too, I've completed graduate work in Education and Theater at the University of Northern Iowa. I have over 25 years' experience teaching in schools, theaters, community education programs, and private studios. I have equal years' experience as a performer in choral, musical theater, opera, and play productions. I currently own and operate a private studio where I teach piano, voice, guitar, and stage dialects. Music students learn how to perform with their instrument, study music history and theory, as well as taking advantage of performing opportunities in the metro area. One of the best rates in town. Studio slots are filling up quickly-please contact me soon. Please be aware that the system won't let me enter my tuition fee for a 45-minute lesson. My fee is $15.00 for a half-hour lesson. Thus, 45 mins. would be $22.50 and an hour $30.00. I look forward to hearing from you! I am indeed open to taking adult students. As well, I am indeed interested in working with toddlers. Peggy

    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.
