Todd was very professional and very helpful with assigning me in better understanding algebra. Todd price was very reasonable compared to other tutors. He was really made sure I understood the subject matter and I would not hesitate to have him assist me again.

Shawn is like actually the best. He’s super nice and friendly and I don’t feel intimidated or stupid like I have with other tutors. He makes sure you understand everything and always answers my texts when I don’t understand problems after. You can tell he genuinely cares about your success and wants to be there for you. I would definitely recommend him and I have to many of my friends. He’s helped me throughout all of my high school math classes and thank god, because I seriously needed help. If you need a tutor, Shawn is the best. 10/10

Cathan is an amazing teacher and individual. She has the remarkable gift of being able to teach both the beginner and the highly advanced student. Between our three children and involvement in the music world, we have had exposure to many piano teachers. Cathan is singular in her ability to teach the basics of music and playing piano AND musical expression, beautifully interpreting a piece. She is also very good at selecting just the right music that pushes a student forward at the right pace. We came to Cathan after a negative experience with highly-acclaimed piano teacher in the area who just didn't give proper attention to our son. After four years, he simply wasn't progressing, and it didn't seem like it was his fault. We gave him the choice to quit piano or to take lessons from another teacher. To our surprise, he wanted to try another teacher. Once we switched to Cathan, we rapidly saw significant improvement in his playing. Now it is several years later, and even though our son is a young man on the brink of adulthood, he still chooses to take piano from Cathan and practices regularly without ever being prodded. It is a joy to have this music fill our house. We highly recommend Ms. Kabrelian's studio to anyone considering music lessons. It has been a life-changer for us.

    Carlos is a very sincere, intelligent, thoughtful, and endearing person. Anyone lucky enough to have him in their life through work or otherwise are a better person for knowing him. I've learned many wonderful things from my friend Carlos. From Spanish, to life lessons, to knowing when to apply yourself and dig in with a little elbow grease, or even when to simply keep your mouth shut. He is an amazing friend and would, at the drop of a hat, help anyone out who may be struggling, in a tight spot, have a question, or just in need of a great conversation. I would score him 100 stars if it were possible!

    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 do you study for the SAT?

    Your SAT prep strategy can mean the difference between a great score and a mediocre score, as well as the difference between being accepted to or rejected by your school of choice. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that measures a student’s knowledge and understanding of what they have learned up to this point in school and what they need to succeed in college. In addition to arming students with the knowledge they need to excel in the math, reading and writing components of the test, SAT prep can help improve scores by teaching students crucial strategies for taking the test itself. Professional SAT prep tutors can work with students one-on-one or in group sessions. Typically, tutors recommend that students who are comfortable and caught up with their regular schooling begin SAT prep at least three months before the test. If you’re targeting an elite school, six months before the test is a good time to begin. Students who are behind in school are advised to start early to ensure they’re caught up and feeling confident in all the relevant subjects. Suggestions for long-term SAT prep include taking challenging high school courses, completing all homework assignments, preparing for class tests and quizzes, and participating in class by asking and answering questions. There are free SAT prep training tools online; for those who’d like a one-on-one tutor to take them to the next level, the national average rate is $70 per hour.

    How do I prepare for the GMAT?

    If you’re thinking of enrolling in graduate school to earn your MBA, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Working with a GMAT tutor is for many people a wise investment to help you strengthen the academic areas you may be weak in and improving your overall test score. A GMAT prep tutor should teach you not only the kind of information you need to know for the test, but the best test-taking strategies. The GMAT tests you on four categories: quantitative, verbal, integrated reasoning, and an analytical writing assessment. Cramming is probably not going to give you good results for this standardized test; give yourself between two and six months to prepare, focusing on your most challenging areas first. Successful GMAT prep means planning ahead and studying thoroughly. Those students who reported studying under 75 hours were more likely to score 400 or lower on the test, while students who studied 121 hours or more were more likely to score 700 or higher on the test. Hiring a GMAT prep tutor can range in price from under $50 to over $200 per hour.

    What is ACT test prep?

    The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

    • English
    • Science understanding and reasoning
    • Math
    • Reading
    • Writing essay (optional)

    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.
