I used Arbor Tutors for math and English tutoring for both the GMAT and the GRE (I didn't know what I wanted to do for grad school). I ended up in the top 10% for the GRE and 720 on the GMAT. My tutor was amazing!!! I was so happy my boyfriend hired Arbor for Spanish tutoring. Super happy!

Gloria was asked to provide Spanish tutoring for two high school boys using the Vista Higher Learning Descubre curriculum. She has done a great job, both boys have gained confidence and feel much more prepared and familiar with the material.

James was the perfect fit for our teenager, for both ACT tutoring and college application/essay coaching. Not only did the ACT scores in question jump 5 points to a high score, but he had a pragmatic and helpful approach to the college process that was very well received. He had a positive outlook and cultivated confidence in our son, who had been a little nervous about the application process. James came to our house and was always polite, professional and on time. So far we've had all positive decisions from colleges and are so grateful!

Needed math strategy tips, study planning advice, as well as general supplementary algebra 2 tutoring to get my algebra on the college level necessary to pass the CLEP exam. Aron was extremely helpful in both directing me to areas that needed improvement and in helping me improve them. Definitely recommended. 5 stars!

Ainna has been tutoring me in french 1-on-1 for the past 2 years and I truly look forward to her lessons. She spends time preparing for my individual needs before each lesson so our time together is very productive. In addition to the subject of the lesson I find I am always learning about other idiosyncrasies of the french language just through her casual comments. Her appreciation for the subtleties of French is impressive. Her lessons are very reasonably priced. She is not someone who sits and counts the seconds and is always lively and pleasant to be with. My progress was evident to me recently on a visit to France. I highly recommend her!!

My daughter is Tutoring with RKS for HS Honors Bio and the experience has been fantastic, from the inception telephone call to date! Highly professional, efficient and responsive, taking the time to assess my daughter’s individual needs (including acquiring her specific textbook!) and offering the flexibility to meet her busy schedule. Also incredibly kind, compassionate and infinitely patient. Cannot recommend more highly.

My daughter just had one tutoring session and she was very excited afterwards. She fell behind in school due to a severe concussion she suffered last year. This prevented her from taking the SAT & ACT. Math is her toughest subject and she needs help! We went to one of the big brand tutoring places and although she liked it, she likes Manny much better! She said she loved how he shows her time strategies and (like another reviewer mentioned), more than one way to solve the problem. She also said he’s pretty funny and I’m sure that helps :) For the parents, Manny has great communication. Even when I wasnt responding in a timely manner he made sure we connected in a very professional manner.

My daughter is a student at the University of Arizona. This summer she had to take Chemistry 2, a semester class crammed into 3 1/2 weeks. The first few weeks she was really struggling and in jeopardy of failing the class. I decided to look for a tutor online, and found Howard. I emailed him and he immediately got back to me. He began tutoring her the very next day and everyday until the end of the class. He was incredible and helped to turn my daughters grade around. He is fiercely intelligent, compassionate, punctual, patient and a FANTASTIC teacher. I definitely recommend.

I've been a student of Mr. Frost's since I took his Chinese class in middle school. After the class, I reached out to him to help me become a better trumpet player. I have not just become a better trumpet player, but also a better musician. He showed me how to explore dynamic range, develop my tone, and read behind the notes of a musical composition. Most importantly, he gave me the tools to work on becoming a better musician on my own. Now I play for the MIT Concert Band and in the pit for the school's musicals. Thanks Mr. Frost for being the best teacher one could ask for!

Erik has a way of evaluating what needs to be accomplished and has the knowledge and skill in order to execute it. He has terrific interpersonal skill making me feel as though I am helpless after 24 years of not doing any algebra whatsoever. I give Erik 5 stars, if you need a tutor, he's the man!

I’ve had one session with Cheryl so far and she’s exceeded my expectations. She was so prepared for our session, and so easy to talk to that I knew I was going to set up future sessions even before our first session was over. I definitely have a renewed focus for my GRE studying thanks to Cheryl. Overall great tutor!

I hired Jon and his staff for Sat preparation for my daughter who was in 11th grade and they were exceptional. Not only did they raise my daughter's score by a whopping 630 points but helped with the entire college application process landing a 35 thousand dollar scholarship to NYU. I cannot praise them enough.

    Glyn tutored my daughter for the SAT. She was able to improve her score by over 200 points! I couldn’t be happier. There is no doubt in my mind that her SAT score played a big role in her getting a partial scholarship to RIT. I would definitely recommend Glyn as an SAT tutor.

    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.
    • National average cost for an SAT home tutor: $70 per hour.
    • National average cost for an ACT home tutor: $70-$100 per hour.
