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.
  • National average cost for an SAT home tutor: $70 per hour.
  • National average cost for an ACT home tutor: $70-$100 per hour.

My daughter loves her virtual tutoring sessions with Dean. He’s an expert in math but most importantly he uses positive reinforcement to help her find her path. She has always disliked math but says that she really enjoys her tutoring sessions! Such a relief to find her support as she enters accelerated classes that she really enjoys. I highly recommend!!

Chuck is a great tutor! He is kind and patient. Our daughter worked with him for the second half of the year mostly on math. Her grade improved a full letter, and more importantly, she reports that her understanding of the concepts are what gained the most improvement. I would highly recommend Chuck for tutoring, and plan to hire him next year when our daughter enters high school.

I had my first session today for my calculus class and it was better than I could have imagined! It’s always a little scary asking for help, but Tom was so patient with me! He explains the math problem while showing step by step, which in calculus is definitely needed! If you are in need of a tutor I highly recommend Tom!

Chuck worked with my raising 5th grader to review the past year and work on upcoming skills. He was great with her. Very patient and made it fun for her. She didn't hate tutoring the way she thought she would. He explained everything on her level and really helped her gain confidence in her math skills. We hope to continue with Chuck during the school year.

This is an amazing business. Chris listens carefully to both parents and the students, taking extra care to understand learning styles, family dynamics, and student challenges. He spent so much time making sure we will were comfortable with him during the consultation and the matched us with a dynamite, energized, gifted tutor. I also appreciate how insightful Chris' about the best studying environments for students. Our daughter's confidence and ease with math is definitely trending upward. Thank you Chris and Kevin!
