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.

Todd has worked with my daughter for the past 2 years. In two years of tutoring Todd was always on time and he is extremely reliable. He also stays late if needed. Todd is very familiar with my daughter 5th grade math curriculum. He is very patient and great with kids. I am highly recommending Todd if you are looking for a math tutor.

I searched for a tutor on behalf of my niece who is failing math. Mr. Morgan responded to the request and from what I understand he has been relentless in his tutoring of my niece. Mr. Morgan is patient and does not rush through the session. My niece called very excited and advised me that her grade will go from a F to a C. And under Mr. Morgan's continued tutelage, I'm sure that grade will be an A.

My daughter has been working with Todd for about 2 years now. At first I was a little skeptical due to different cultures and backgrounds with our family, I did not know if my daughter would take to Tood, But she did immediately he was able to connect with her. Todd was very accommodating from the start. I was looking for a Math tutor that could definitely be very patient and get through to my introvert daughter. Todd was all I expected and more. Todd not only is patient with my daughter but he uses different tools and materials to assist in the tutoring. He also uses stories to help my daughter relate to real life circumstances. He even goes even further by showing special interest in her personally and her social activities and school. He is just so amazing his natural ability to reach her is remarkable. He has been so thoughtful to bring her special gifts that are associated to her special interest and he also brings her writing and math gifts as well...It is endless. Todd also communicates with me very well in making sure to involve me in the tutoring process by giving me a recap on what was learned and how she did and what she needs to work on. He has been very flexible with meeting our schedule needs and always communicates very effective prior to and after each session...It is just very rare to find a tutor that can be so good and consistent. The first year my daughter started working with Todd she went from falling behind in school to ending on the Principles Honors Roll. Carla Very Happy Parent I
