Mike was very helpful and willing to jump in and provide some last minute SAT Test prep and tutoring for my daughter's second time taking the test. Mike helped her with her weak points (Math) as well as general test taking strategies. Her confidence was higher going into the second test after Mike's help. He was thorough and knowledgeable.

My sister and I had Mrs.Griswold for ACT English and Reading tutoring. She met with us every Saturday at my our home for hourlong sessions. From my time with her I have learned many things, Mrs.Griswold is an excellent teacher. I felt that learning with her was not a hassle or struggle, and that she allowed me to progress naturally and comfortably. She has a very kind and light-hearted personality and is very easy to work with. I would recommend Mrs.Griswold to anyone who is looking to understand the material, recognize patterns, and score highly on the test without all of the stress usually associated.

Bennett is awesome! Bennett was recommended by a friend for ACT tutoring in Math and Science. He helped my son go from a 31 in Math to a perfect score of 36, and from a 26 in Science to a 34. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing help with math or looking to improve their ACT score.

Marchella is an excellent and encouraging math tutor. She first started tutoring me in 6th grade and, over the course of a few years, tutored me in both algebra and geometry. Not only is she an amazing tutor but she is also a great role model and anyone would be lucky to have her!

Karissa providing tutoring services to our son Mark in English for at least 18 months to get him through elementary school and then middle school. No easy task due to his defiance. He is now a freshman in high school and has not had any problems in English. During the sommer holidays, Karissa taught all 3 kids typing. Diana is still fully proficient in typing with 10 fingers. Mark is much better than the 1 finger method and Benny may need another course, because he was too young. Karissa is well prepared, takes the job very seriously. Also, she is very flexible. Best of all, she is affordable. We are glad to have had Karissa as our tutor and will hire her again, if the need arises.

I love reviewing my math with Mrs. Raj. I always go the day before I have a test and we go over everything I need to know. She makes you do problems until she knows that you understand. I always feel very prepared when for my next test when I walk out of her house. I would really recommend her to people because I have had other math tutors before and they just do not compare to Mrs. Raj.

We were so pleased with the individual tutoring that Brad gave our son, Tyler. He was so accommodating to Tyler’s busy sports and work schedule, was always on time, and professional. Brad’s positive and patient way quickly helped to establish a good rapport. Brad took the time in the beginning to assess Tyler’s strengths and weaknesses, so that they could make the most of their tutoring time. He knew exactly what to focus on to help Tyler meet his goal. Brad’s expertise regarding the SAT was exceptional. He shared with Tyler the techniques and tips that would make him successful. Tyler went from a 1320 on the PSAT to a 1460 on the SAT due to Brad’s outstanding guidance! It was money well spent! Thanks again! Cathy and Lee S.

I'm a native Spanish speaker from Málaga, Spain, who had the chance to share a very enriching and invaluable experience with Callen in the US and Spain for several months a few years ago. Not only did he enormously help me with my English skills, but I also realised how capable he is of working with Spanish. Both his communication and teaching skills will be extremely helpful for his students.

I cannot say enough about Ms. Rangel's tutoring of my daughter, Cristina. After explaining to Natasha about the problems Cristina had with reading & comprehension, Natasha has really engaged my unfocused child with her hands on approach and variety of teaching methods which holds Cristina's interest. I see a huge improvement in Cristina's reading, as well as her enthusiasm for reading!

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.
