William was very helpful in getting my GRE score up to where I needed it to be. I got my verbal score up by 10 points in my official score after a month and a half of tutoring sessions. He was available every week and willing to work around my schedule. Definitely recommend!

Mr. Mougy Ahmed has done wonders as a math tutor for our sophomore son! He has a very agreeable, non-threatening tutoring style, and our son enjoyed working with him right away. Our son was getting D's and C's in Algebra II , even with the assistance of a previous math tutor. Mougy came to our house and immediately recognized where our son was misunderstanding foundational concepts in Algebra II, and worked with him to build up that knowledge base and apply those skills correctly. He has been highly responsive in setting up tutoring sessions, sending additional lessons/exercises via email, and even holding extra sessions in advance of math tests/quizzes. As a direct result of Mougy's tutoring, our son earned a B+ and an A on his last two math tests. We highly recommend him to any student or parent who is searching for tutoring assistance.

Having Bill Pow work with my daughter was one of the best choices I've made for her. On there first meeting he was able to zero in on what were the areas they should work on and what strategies she should developed. My daughter, who really didn't want tutoring, especially during summer vacation, was very thankful she was able to work with Bill. She says she feels far better prepared for her ACT retake. Bill was so flexible and responsive when scheduling appointments. He always came prepared and each session was very productive.

Prior to tutoring, two things were holding my daughter back on the SAT- the math section and her confidence. Alex was the perfect tutor to improve both of those areas. He provided clear teaching in math that honed in on the areas where she needed the most help. He was consistently positive and encouraging, helping her believe in herself. This led to her math score jumping 180 points.

My highest recommendation to Get French. Samina is unfailingly patient and enjoyable to work with while still being professional and an excellent teacher. I find her instructional methods engaging, relevant, and very effective. In addition, her primary clientele are professionals in the international arena, so her instruction isn't just academic or "book" French. Also, she understands the need for desired focus areas of study and necessary schedule changes (within reason). All in all, provides exceptional value for money in addition to excellent French language instruction.

Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.

Barbara tutored my twin girls over the summer to prepare them for the SAT. They had tried the test before without personalized tutoring and did not do well. Barbara was great. She traveled out to my home and was very punctual. She was able to engage my girls at each session which was no easy feat as the last thing they wanted to do in the summer was math. I am happy to report that both girls saw a score increase of over 130 points in math. And not only that, they both are earning A's this year in AP stat. I believe that is a direct result of their work with Barbara. I highly recommend her.

I started with her tutoring my 6 year old son in reading/writing he excelled after one report card quarter and was on grade level in no time! So I decided to face her tutor my 10 year old in Math even though he needed extra attention and modified work due to his learning disability ms P never gave up and remained professional always communicating with his teacher as well as myself and husband. He is now on grade level. Both of my boys have been tutoring with ms p for over a year! I like her style of teaching and her consistency. She really pushes my boys just enough!

Andrew Sun To whomever this concerns, Before I signed up with this tutoring program, I was not very good academically. In fact, I was the worst in the toolshed. Knowing that I have no time to lose and my bleak future is upon me, I did what many people think it's best; To join the military. I didn't know what to expect of the navy to be honest, so I was unaware of the test you need to take called the asvab. My heart sank a little. I began searching on the Internet, looking for a tutor (especially on math) until I found out about Theo. Theo is the CEO for student circle and unlike other tutors; he is the only one that stood out. He is understanding, ambitious, and kind, but most importantly he can relate to you, creating a special bond which prompts you to succeed. So I explained to him my situation and he set me up with another tutor by the name of Xin. Right off the bat both of us got along and he helped me through two grueling months. There were times when I wanted to give up, but he was there for me. The funny thing is, he is going through an exam as well during my time with him, so he is the hardest working tutor I have ever came across. I swear, these two do actually care about me because when I took the asvab, I scored high enough to achieve some of the most coveted jobs the navy has to offer! These two will forever be part of my family. Student circle has the best sessions as well as memories. Thank you. Andrew

Mr. Bromley has been very helpful and provided the support we needed when we’re searching for an online tutoring service. The A+ Club helped coordinating our schedules and we are able to find qualified tutor that is reasonably priced and also give us the homework help that we're looking for. Yes, I would recommend their service to others.

After studying French through Arlington County Adult Education for two sessions over the past few months, my understanding of grammar was fairly good but my pronunciation and ability to speak were horrible, so I decided to pursue a tutor. After an initial session where she evaluated my learning goals and needs, Zahra developed a plan to improve my French speaking in time for a trip this coming summer. Zahra introduced me to important pronunciation rules that were not covered by the class I attended, and she immediately began helping me learn some basic and intermediate conversation phrases and topics that I will be able to use on my trip. Her approach is very practical and tailored to my specific needs. I plan to continue learning from Zahra after my trip to improve even more. Zahra is an excellent teacher whom I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn French at any level. She provides great handouts to make learning fun and easy, and she gives just the right amount and right type of homework to reinforce the concepts from the tutoring sessions. Zahra is the best!

I am pleased to highly recommend Nick Pino, who is my tutor for Spanish. Having needed to enter an intermediate Spanish course after several years away from the language, the completion of which is a graduation requirement for a top-10 international relations program, Nick is working with me to not only meet this requirement, but also to identify and hone the areas necessary to mastering proficiency. From our very first session, he immediately made it a priority to take the time to understand my unique, individual needs. Not surprisingly, I've found that my confidence with Spanish grows every time Nick and I meet, whether over coffee or in a more formal setting, and studying under him has been the best investment I've made in my personalized, life-long learning path -- to include the (traditional) classroom/institutional settings, which cost far more! Ultimately, when it comes to learning Spanish, Nick is the consummate language professional. He works with you to improve your knowledge, sharpen your language skills and transform you into a Spanish-speaker. Nick Pino is the real deal! - Ry

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.
