Kate has been providing math tutoring to our ten-year-old who has missed quite a bit of math instruction at school due to various issues. Kate seems to be very good at figuring out what our daughter does and doesn't know, and helps her understand in a way that is calm and respectful with a little fun added in. Best of all, after the first session our daughter said "I like Kate because she showed me I DO understand a lot of math"--and we have had no complaints from her about adding an hour of math tutoring to her schedule. Kate also knows how to separate what procedures and vocabulary she needs to teach/explain in sessions versus what material our daughter needs to spend time practicing on her own.

Heather has been an excellent tutor for both my kids. My daughter was tutored in reading and now is one of the strongest readers in her class. She loves to read and carries a book wherever she goes. Heather tutors my son in reading and he has made significant strides from where he started. He really enjoys working with Heather and retains what he learns from her and uses it at school. He is now starting to tutor with Heather in math. We are very happy with how much Heather has helped our kids! Highly recommend.

Shaylin did a really good job of providing multiple example problems. Those problems helped me develop familiarity and confidence. Also, she does a very good job of asking how I would think of approaching a problem and lead me in the direction to solve it. Overall, great math tutor!

    Yelena was an excellent tutor for my son who needed help preparing for high school Algebra. She able to teach him what he needed to learn to be prepared for high school math. She also was able to assess his current skill level and adapt her lessons to fit his needs. She is very professional and able to adjust her teaching style to make sure my son learned everything at his own pace. All her previous teaching experience was very evident and helpful during the tutoring sessions. I'm recommending her to everyone I know who might need math tutoring!

      Mary was my daughter's private tutor for many years. Her experience as a special education teacher was evident when working with my daughter. Mary was always prepared, patient and kind. My daughter's improved reading, math, and money skills are a testament to Mary's exceptional talent as a fine educator.

      About

      I have been teaching math courses at the community college level for 12 years. I have also been performing private tutoring in math classes up to Calculus for middle, high school, and college students for 4 years.

      About

      I have been a private math tutor for nearly 10 years. I approach math from a different viewpoint than most teachers. I learned math because I wanted to understand how it applies to be an engineer. Though my current career has taken me into another direction, I still enjoy sharing my knowledge and love of math with students who want to learn. Normally, I am able to explain most concepts in multiple ways in case a student is not able to understand one way or another. My best range of math is from Algebra I through Pre-Calculus, though I do work with students in courses before or after. I am a coach at a local high school, so I have a background check run on me every year. As for meeting, I usually meet at the client's home, provided there are little to no distractions. If there will be too many distractions, I recommend meeting at a local library. For home schooled students, I am also available earlier in the day.

      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.
