Michelle is a wonderful math tutor. My daughter had to retake a geometry exam for 9th grade. She only had three weeks to prepare. Michelle worked really hard with my daughter and she passed the exam. In those 3 weeks my daughter said she learned more than she did all year with her math teacher. We will continue to use her throughout the school year for algebra. Thank you Michelle!

Oliver tutored me for my Statistics exam among other Math related courses. I struggled with math all of my academic life and Oliver was well aware of my fears and weaknesses with math in general. He was able to accommodate his teaching style to my needs. I would not have passed otherwise. Oliver is very kind, hard working, smart and reliable. I owe him a lot of credit for helping me get through my courses in math!

The online tutoring works really well. At first I was hesitent, but my daughter took to it immediately. We had a traditional math tutor for her in middle school who would visit twice a week. Online is much more convenient. Professor Holton is a fabulous instructor. We couldn't be more pleased

Some tutors are very knowledgeable. Some have a lot of experience. Heather is a rare combination of off-the-charts smarts, tons of experience, highly credentialed AND super warm, personable, patient and intuitive. She's been a great source of help and support for my son over the past couple of months as he prepared to take the SSAT. They worked hard and they had a lot of laughs together. He took a diagnostic test in September. After preparing with Heather he sat for the real SSAT in November and his score doubled. (I am not exaggerating.) If you hire her you will be more than satisfied.

Martin helped me study for my math MTEL. Math is far from my strong suit and he was very patient in explaining the problems and coming up with helpful tricks when appropriate. He was very punctual and easy to get in contact with. Highly recommend!

I decided to work with Karoline after I received a 60% on a homework assignment that the Professor assigned for review. On top of this failing grade, I was struggling to understand new material because there were certain basic concepts that I did not have previous knowledge of. Although I have never been very comfortable with math, this failing grade made it clear that there were large gaps in my math abilities and that I was already at a disadvantage as compared to my peers. I started looking for a math tutor, and after trying a few, I am so lucky I found Karoline! Whether it is the simplest concepts (for example, I have a hard time with inequality notation) or something complicated and theoretical, Karoline explains math with clarity, grace, and real-world relevance. She goes above and beyond for her students. She is always on time, responds to phone calls/texts immediately, and works hard to accommodate busy schedules. Recently, I was not aware that a teacher moved our exam to an earlier date and I started to get nervous. Karoline changed her schedule around to meet with me three days in a row. She also prepared a sheet of practice problems for me to work on after our tutoring sessions. I also want to note that she is very helpful in terms of study skills and organization techniques. I am fairly messy and so have always been prone to silly mistakes in math. Karoline recognized that this was an obstacle for me and so she helped me devise a special system to organize my math problems into a step-by-step chart so that I could more effectively check my work. I am entering my final exam with an A in the course and truly have Karoline to thank for this. I promise that if you are looking for a math tutor, look no further. You will not regret it!

Clare has been my math tutor for a year. She has given me the confidence to not be afraid that I will fail at my tests and also help me understand my homework. Plus we have fun! She gives me other web sites that I use to practice math. I like that we can Skype because she can answer my calls whenever I need her help.

Marina has been working with my son on a regular basis to strengthen gaps in his knowledge. She is always warm, patient, understanding and encouraging. She quickly discovered and has helped fill the gaps in my son's knowledge base and after just one session he brought his grade up on a midterm exam from an average C- to a high B. My son is developing study skills and good habits of learning that he has never had since working with Marina and the combination of all of the above is greatly increasing his confidence. Marina is Innovative and flexible and tutors my son online. She provides focused support through Skype sessions, email, and text messages and coaches students to use Khan Academy and other resources effectively. In short, Marina is a dream tutor and my son has decided to follow his long standing dream of studying computer science which he had given up when he began to struggle in math. Marina is a life changer!!!! Can't say enough good things about her.

About

I have no idea what other tutors do --- I know, from feedback from students and parents, that I do an excellent job --- first, I know my subject matter (math, physics) --- second, I like helping people --- third, I am very patient --- fourth, I ask leading questions of the student, so as to guide that student into discovering for himself/herself, as much as possible, what is involved in understanding, and then solving, the problem at hand

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.
