Sibyl is YOUR teacher! I have been trying to learn Spanish on and off over several years, and finally wanted to get serious. I have taken 3 classes so far with Sibyl and she's a great teacher who quickly adjusts to her students needs. Sibyl works with every level, I'm an advanced beginner and 90% of our class time is already in Spanish! If you want to improve or learn Spanish quickly( or slowly), meet with Sibyl for her affordable one on one classes, and great personality.

I did the online GMAT tutoring with Steve. I mostly needed help with Quant but a little Verbal as well. I went from 520 to 730 with a lot of hard work. Fantastic tutoring.

Thumbtack provides a sophisticated, efficient, and effective framework for tutoring. For us, this was a much better option than the large impersonal prep companies that are not flexible about crafting approaches for different kinds of students. I would recommend Bootstrap very highly and will continue to use them throughout the coming months. A great discovery!

The job was tutoring university statistics very late in the game (4 weeks prior to exam, if that). The tutor, Ken, was outstanding, giving as much time as was needed (a lot of time was needed) and beyond that bolstering spirits and showing belief in the student - which was invaluable. The student passed the course, which at no time seemed certain. Quantum Prep was upfront about the possibility of not passing, which was appreciated, and actually gave more incentive to go "full steam ahead" with intensive hours to achieve the goal. The Quantum Prep team was responsive to issues which cropped up, such as problems with the online textbook, and scheduling snafus as well. They gave periodic updates which were enormously appreciated. They will be my first call for all tutoring in the future.

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

John has tremendous knowledge and experience teaching algebra. His passion is remarkable and infectious. He has a structured approach to breaking down all of the concepts and teaching them one-by-one. In 5 meetings he has covered nearly a whole year of course work. His follow-up after meetings is fantastic and he always arrives on time, enthusiastic to get started. My son and I couldn't be happier!

Before UMB, I have never taken a class on a different language due to the fact that I went to a technical trade high school. As a Transfer Student entering UMASS Boston, it is a requirement that the student must take 2 semesters (101 and 201) of a language. I chose Spanish because I thought it was the second most spoken language next to English. After the first few weeks of trying to learn spanish with the course and a couple iphone apps, my professor recommended that I go to the UMB tutoring center to better understand this Spanish language. It was at this scheduling session where I was matched up with Arlete as my tutor. We would meet once a week to go over the weekly material and she would give me pointers on how to study and clarify the words that I was unfamiliar with along the way. After a few weeks into the semester, I knew that if I had any chance of passing the class that it would be with the tutoring assistance from Arlete that I could achieve my goal. I ended up passing SPAN101 in the Fall Semester. As the Spring Semester rolled around, I was put into the SPAN201 where I knew I was going back to the tutoring center to find further assistance to help me pass this course as well. While the process for establishing a tutor took longer due to the snow days, I had one session with a different tutor until I made it clear with Arlete that I would like her to tutor me for another semester of this Spanish. We went over the coursework as we did in the SPAN101 but this time it was a bit more advanced. After all was said and done, I passed the class and I couldn't have done it without 2 semesters of help from Arlete. She made it clear that we would meet one day a week at a time acceptable for both of us and we would go over my assignments. It wasn't until small talk that I begin to notice that she was taking time out of her own classes that she could've used extra help to help me instead. I was very appreciative and thankful because I don't think I could've passed the class without meeting with her. I believe she would be a great asset to anybody who needs help with Spanish. She has quite the knowledge on the subject and knows how to relay the information.

Ihab is quite possibly the best math tutor I have ever had. He is enthusiastic, encouraging, and sharp. He is able to adjust his teaching style to fit the learning style of the student. His years of experience allow him to teach his students material in a way most tutors are unable to. 5 stars.

We hired Micheline after my daughter took her initial SAT and ACT test as we felt she could do better with the input of an expert. After two months of consistent tutoring, my daughter again took the tests and her scores improved dramatically. She liked Micheline, and we were happy with her professionalism. Micheline is also very patient. When my son needed help with Spanish, we called Micheline. My son enjoyed & looked forward to his lessons, learned to love Spanish, and made a lot of progress. We would highly recommend her!

Dr James is a great teacher! He is very passionate about what he does and is extremely knowledgeable. He was my undergraduate astrophysics professor and I assist him with stellar evolution research. I highly recommend him for teaching/tutoring as he keeps your attention, makes complex subjects awesome to learn, teaches neat French phrases and what not to say because it actually means something else, and is quick to respond to questions.

I hired Darien to tutor my 14 year old son in geometry. Before meeting with my son, Darien took the time to discuss the chapter topics with me and was quickly able to prioritize the concepts that my son needed to be taught. Darien is an experienced teacher who has an in-depth knowledge of math so I felt very comfortable that all time spent would be valuable. Darien assessed my son’s ability and by reviewing his prework she was quickly able to direct her attention to areas that needed attention. I would recommend Darien as a math tutor because she has great experience with teaching and has a firm grasp of the concepts. Darien has spent years developing creative and new ways to teach math concepts and her passion for math and teaching are a huge asset for anyone who works with her.

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!

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 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.

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.
