About

My services include the following: * More than 500 documented tutoring hours at WyzAnt with several hundred undocumented hours at elementary, middle school, high school, college, graduate and professional levels. My first tutoring experience was in junior high school, and I have continued to tutor in various subjects all my life. * Specialty areas - language arts, preschool through middle school math (middle school math education minor requirements completed at Winona State University), test prep including TOEFL, ESL/ELL from elementary school through professional adult and test prep of all kinds * My students describe me as patient, kind, dedicated to teaching, highly prepared with individualized lessons and knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects. I seek deeply to understand individual student learning styles and adapt to their needs. * Tutoring is my primary activity in life at this stage of my career. To that end, I have resumed my education in the field of teacher training. In addition to my previous education and experience, I have completed formal education coursework in elementary school reading and math, elementary and middle school pedagogy, middle school math education and learning developmental theory. I have completed with flying colors eight qualification exams from the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examination (MTLE) (basics skills - reading, writing and math), language arts grades five to eight, language arts grades eight to 12, middle school math grades five to eight, elementary pedagogy (two separate exams required for licensure). * Tutoring is what I do! All of my recent education has been for the purpose of becoming an excellent tutor. This is the niche in education where I am happiest and most importantly, the most effective. I love the one-on-contact and the joy of participating in a student's experience of understanding and mastering their subjects and tasks. One of my favorite comments that I have heard is "I wish my teacher had explained it that way!" I always explain that teachers are highly trained and do an excellent job, but that my students always have a unique style and questions that are best addressed with the personalized, compassionate and attentive focus that only a tutor can offer. I also emphasize that using a tutor does not mean that they are deficient in anyway whatsoever, but rather, they have been smart to seek out a forum where their personal questions can be answered * I have taken many standardized tests (PSAT, SAT, ASCP and GRE) and in order to enhance my tutoring, I have taken practice exams for LSAT, TOEFL, ACT, ASVAB and CAAP. While some of these tests were taken some time ago as part of my own personal education path, I can affirm that I have scored in the 95% range on all of them. * I am available to tutor up to 15 hours per week between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., every day throughout the year.

About

I am from South Korea and have been studying in America for 4 years. For 4 years, I was struggling to learn English and studying hard to follow my classes. As a result, I learned the efficient way of studying English (useful for people who are from other countries). I taught Korean students who needed English help and American students who needed math help (especially for ACT math). I got 29 ACT overall score and 33 ACT math and 28 English ACT. Studying at St. Olaf College, I explored the joy of teaching. As a native Korean speaker, I taught American friends who are interested in Korean culture and Korean. During my freshman year at St.Olaf, I maintained an A- grade. I enjoy teaching in general and understand the struggle of learning, especially that math is a definitely challenging subject and sometimes makes us frustrated. But, I think that the struggle is the beauty of the learning process. I am still learning, too and teaching other people also helps me to learn. I would like to join your journey of learning and help you through the process.

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.
