We have been using Todd for the past 2 years for our son that has ADHD. Our son is going to be a senior this year and he has helped him so much. He has helped our son with Geometry and Algebra 1 & 2. He scored proficient on his end of course exams which is required for the A+ program. Our son used to have test anxiety really bad. Todd has helped him so much with that and built his confidence. He really cares about his students. We will never use anyone else. He also have had the pleasure of getting to know Todd personally. He always prepares for the lessons before the tutoring session so he is always ready to go.

David was an excellent ACT tutor for my daughter. His lessons and practice material helped my daughter to raise her score by 7 points. David provided us with an update on her progress after every session. My daughter said that she learned more from David than she did from her high school prep class. I have highly recommend David to other parents. We could not be happier with the results. Grant E.

Allen is an excellent Spanish tutor. He is always on time for lessons and gives various ways for me to practice my Spanish. During and after our lessons, he often provides links to helpful websites, podcasts, or videos to supplement our Spanish conversations.

My son Finnegan has been taking lessons for almost two years now. He has progressed steadily and really enjoys the lessons he has with Cathan Kabrelian. He really looks forward to the two recitals she holds every year. Her prices are very reasonable and she is very caring and attentive during lessons.

Danielle Stanton is no doubt one of the most talented teachers of anything I've met in my entire life . . . and I'm a seventy-year-old educator and grandmother. She's incredibly bright and knowledgeable about math; but--far more important to me--she knows how to "read" kids and to adapt what and how she teaches to the individual. My ten-year-old grandson has made remarkable progress with Danielle's help in just a few weeks, and he describes every session as being just plain fun--according to him, in fact, "better than a play date!" I became alarmed when he seemed unable to learn his multiplication tables by the middle of fourth grade. That same "reluctant" learner has now made it through memorizing his 7s in less than a month. I spent thousands of dollars dragging him to boring, after-school, semi-private "math-enrichment" lessons at a branded local math franchise several days each week, including summers, for over two years. My grandson hated those sessions because he hated learning math from dull, impersonal worksheets--the same system that was failing him at his private Montessori school. As I suspected, "practice, practice, practice" isn't always the answer!! This same child is now up at the white board beside Danielle, actively engaged, laughing with her, at her, and at himself, jumping around on his toes in excitement, and spouting the multiplication tables both quickly and accurately. Learning the basics, however, is just the starting point. Danielle takes him well beyond the basics during every tutoring session and shows him how applied mathematics underpins most of the things in which he has a much deeper interest--design, engineering, construction, motors, airplanes, etc. She moves quickly, talks quickly, reasons quickly, and manages to teach math basics quickly without focusing exclusively on them. As a result, Danielle is able to engage my grandson's full attention and to ignite a willingness to learn what before he found simply boring. Side benefits? His self-esteem and self-confidence are soaring!

Mrs. Warwick is hands down the best teacher I've ever had. I first had Mrs. Warwick as a teacher the first quarter of my freshman year of high school through her entrepreneurship class. She exposed me to the endless opportunities that a business education provides. From that one class, I took all of Mrs. Warwick's classes throughout high school. Mrs. Warwick became a mentor, advisor, and a role model to me. She genuinely cares about the success of all of her students, and will stop at no ends to make sure her students reaches success. She is able to relate to any student from any background and find what makes them think and tick. Any student that she works with she makes sure they are prepared to perform both academically and professionally. Mrs. Warwick hands down is the best teacher. It is because of Mrs. Warwick that I am now a first-generation senior studying Finance about to begin my career in New York City after graduation.

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.
