Ms. Sandy has been doing an awesome job at tutoring my 6 year-old son. Before he met her, my son was struggling with reading a book.(because we only speaks Korean at home) Now his reading skills are much improved and he is able to read! His grade get higher since Ms. Sandy starts to teach him. She is warm, patient and very sweet. We really want to have her to teach him more. We also recommended her to my Korean colleague, who has a 5 year-old daughter. - NamSuk Oh & KyongHwa Jung (in Chicago)

Wendi was very helpful in prepping me for the ACT. I enjoyed that I got one-on-one help because I feel like I got more out of it that way. I liked the way Wendi approached each of the 4 sections on the ACT test. We worked on both strategies and how to do certain problems, so I got a wide range of information that I need to succeed on the test.

In the Fall of 2017, I reached out to Greg, as I was in the process of applying for a PhD at the University of Chicago, and needed to take the GRE before the spring. Greg immediately was willing to add me to his busy roster of students, and accommodate my, somewhat turbulent, teaching schedule. Greg held a high level of professionalism when it came to understanding busy schedules, and would offer to add extra sessions, accommodate changes in my schedule, and tell me far in advance if there were any changes in his own. I'm a high school social studies teacher and, not by accident, math has never been an area where I have excelled. I had attended a tutor in high school, and was a regular attendee of the Math Resource Center in undergrad. I had reservations about going to a tutor for the mathematics portion of the GRE, but working with Greg was very different from my previous experiences. He is able to break down the concepts, rules, and strategies in a way that made the content clear. I have felt in the past that my tutors became frustrated when I didn't master the material well, I never felt this way when working with Greg. He is an excellent "re-teacher." What I mean by this, is when one approach to the material is still not clicking, he doesn't continue down that same path, he employs new methods until the concepts are understood. As a person, Greg is kind, patient, very enjoyable to be around. His genuine interest in your success as his student is apparent at each session, and beyond. I highly recommend Greg as a tutor to anyone who is looking to improve their mastery of mathematics. As a high school teacher, I strongly recommend Greg to this level of student, because his demeanor and approach are fantastic for this age group. - Mary Kettering

Sergey S. My name is Sergey. My company hired Marina for online classes in conversation English. We are IT specialists and did not have much of a real-life conversation in English before classes with Marina. The classes were great, we had a lot of fun and improved a lot. We had no problem talking to customers in English at the technical exhibition afterwards.

Our first meeting was great. He is a conscientious tutor. He prepared some practices for me to learn about my skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. And then he will customize a plan for me, according to my performance in our first meeting.

Suzanne has been my daughter's tutor for the past ten years. She very quickly tapped into her strengths and interests to provide fun ways to improve her language arts skills. Suzanne's special education background, in addition to her patient and kind personality have made her an excellent teacher. My daughter has absolutely loved going to "tutoring" all these years!

We are still using Guy for a few more weeks but we couldn't be happier. His tutoring style is very patient and thorough with repetition. Especially with the Math subjects this is extremely important to students who struggle to be able to learn at a comfortable pace and not feel so overwhelmed. Since hiring Guy my daughter has been getting better grades on her homework and quizzes. We still have the final to go but I am confident that the results we were hoping for will be attained. She just needs to finish the class with a C or better in order for it to count as transfer credits and hopefully this will be the last math class she will ever have to take, if not we will be hiring Guy again.

We've been working with Cristobal for 2 weeks now and we're very pleased. We're very grateful to have the luxury of such a dedicated tutor for such a nominal fee. At the pace he has set for us I'm confident we will speak fluently soon enough. Gracias, Professor!

After deciding to return to school, and complete my degree, the last class I had to take was a Technical Math class. Being years later, this class was no longer offered - I had to take it as an independent student, meaning I had no instructor, or class to show up to, only a syllabus and a Math book. A Math assistance area was available to students, and there I met the tutor I write of here. Of the 6 to 8 tutors available, I signed up with Dave as much as possible. The class I was taking dealt with Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry as well as an introduction to Calculus. I could barely remember how to factor a problem, but working with Dave, he spent the time to help me get through the basics, and had the patience to answer many of my off the wall questions, and many that I thought were unrelated. The first test I took before I asked for any assistance, I had totally bombed. A 47... I knew I'd need help and after working with Dave for a week and a half, the retake test I took got me an 88. Dave helped me gain the confidence I needed to figure out problems on my own, and showed me how I could apply other concepts and equations from other chapters and solve new problems in a variety of ways. I am on my last exam now, and I still choose to wait in line to work with this excellent tutor, when there are another 5 available at any time. If you are in need of assistance with Math, and are looking for someone to help you either from the very basics to intermediate and advanced topics, I would highly recommend Dave as he is an outstanding tutor, with loads of patience and knowledge, as well as being incomparable to other tutors in his willingness to help and assist you as much as you need. Thanks Dave!

I could have never passed math class without this wonderful educator by my side. There's no question that I'm not the best student and I'm a struggle to work with. Maureen never gave up on me and motivated me to never give up on myself. Her teaching style and process made it so much easier for me to understand the content, where other teachers and tutors had failed again and again. Mo sets the standard that every educator should aspire to live up to. She is the absolute best!

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.
