Howard have been tutoring my two daughters so that they could increase there SAT/ACT scores. He slso tutors me in Pre-Cal Math and English Literature. He is an excellent tutor that knows the material he is teaching. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He makes sure we understands the material. I was surprised when after just 3 weeks working with my daughter, she was able to raise her SAT scores by 90 points. My daughter has an A in Math now all because of Howard. Myself was failing Math in College. I had a D in the class and now I have a B. My first test I got 46%, and after working with Howard within two weeks I got a 94% on my next test. I don’t know how he know these stuff. It just comes naturally to him. If you want your child or even you has an adult going back to colkege like myself; Howard his the guy you need. My daughters are not the easiest kids to teach, but everytime Howard leaves my home they have more confidence in themselves and they grades have increase. So I know he’s doing a grest job.I recommend him with a 110%.

Ms Lion is an incredible tutor! So professional, prepared, organized, but so kind and sweet and understanding and works so well with our son with special needs. We have worked with her for three years now and she works amazingly well with our son. We have tried multiple tutors before her and none of them were the right fit. She can accomplish so much with our son in an hour its incredible. She is able to keep him on task, complete his work, while making it an enjoyable experience for him. He is always happy and excited to go and work with her! She is truly a gem! We have also used her as an invaluable resource for IEP meetings! Words can't express how wonderful she is!

Frank has been an exceptional tutor for my daughter in 8th grade. This year has been particularly difficult for her and I've recently learned , the majority of the class due to a less than stellar teacher unfortunately and Frank is keeping her on track and ready to move to 9th grade math. For students that struggle witht he subject, he is patient and explains things in their "language" making it easier to learn. I will continue to partner with Frank for my daughter's math education into the summer and I am sure she will meet the 9th grade curriculum with the foundation and confidence required to excel. Thanks Frank!

I’m not even sure where to really start as this was my first experience looking for a tutor and it seems that everything fell in perfect place. Alicia was professional, responded each time I reached out to change a date or time right away. Alicia was always on time, price was in my budget and my son loved her! He was so confident after his first session with her and said she taught him something that his math teacher didn’t want to teach this year. I felt comfortable leaving him with her and he asked if she could help him again next year. I highly recommend Alicia Batista.

    Wonderful young lady who knows here stuff!! She took her time and help my son with his math work from the 6th grade he has passed all of his quiz's and test this school year he went from a being a 'D' student to an "A-B" student. My son's schedule days with her was Wednesday's and Friday's. My son became excited about math again. So I am confident that he will pass his EOG's to move on into the 7th grade and I have already put my son on this young lady schedule. I highly recommend this young lady to tutor your young person!! Super smart! It's not a wonder that she graduated High School a year early.

    About

    Forty years ago, I began teaching engineering students physics. I developed a reputation for conveying technical information in layman terms using examples and drawings which further enhanced my student's comprehension. My students learn the importance of recording solutions in their own voice, when I am not there, they can understand and apply the steps to solve similar problems. Tutoring is a joy. When I encounter a student who desperately seeks help and I manage to connect with them and the student with the comprehension of how problems are solved, I feel like I have made a difference in their lives.

I love to see the look on a person's face when they really understand something or see the patterns in math. It's really cool to help a child learn to like and respect math.

    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.
