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!

Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.

I am a literature student who hadn't studied math in several years. Aron helped me to prepare for the GRE. He is an outstanding tutor who made each of the exam's mathematical components accessible to me. He is punctual, considerate, knowledgeable, and willing to adapt the tutoring based on the student's needs. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ethan helped me raise my score for the SAT in two weeks. Based on my past SATs and practice tests, he developed a work plan that showed me which areas I needed to work on. His organization and practice materials helped me successfully raise my score. He is very kind and really helped relieve stress about the SAT as well as the entire college application process. His rates are also very reasonable when you take into consideration the amount of time he spends formulating a study plan, correcting homework and answering questions by email outside of the tutoring time. I very much recommend Ethan!

I would definitely recommend Odyssey Test Prep for anyone preparing for the LSAT! I booked a handful of private tutoring sessions in the 6 weeks leading up to my exam to fine-tune my methods and it was a huge help. My tutor Sandy was extremely helpful and worked me through the barriers I was trying to break as I got closer to test day.

Helped my son accomplish just what we hoped for! Manny worked with my son to help improve his SAT math score - he is reliable and very knowledgeable, his rapport was excellent and most importantly, effective -- my son's SAT math score went from 590 to a 680 - and with just a few pointers referring to the critical reading section, he went from a 590 to a 650. Manny's one on one tutoring was just what we were looking for. Thank you Manny! Mona (Jamie)

I first contacted Charles after sitting for my GMAT exam and being disappointed with my score. I thought I could do much better and after reading reviews of his tutoring work, I decided he would be best to help me improve my score. I was hoping Charles could show me where I was struggling because I felt I had a good handle on the material before each exam before. I purchased multiple GMAT tools from all the top courses, but apparently, I kept missing something. During my first session with Charles, he immediately knew how to solve each question efficiently, showing me multiple ways to arrive at the same answer. He also taught me mental math skills that saved me precious time in the difficult quant section. Charles was sincere in letting me know the amount of time and effort needed to score above 700. He planned out our sessions accordingly, making sure I mastered each topic before moving on. I appreciated how Charles set up our classes with short drill sets to test the concepts he taught me and if I continued to struggle with them, we would review until my understanding was concrete. After working with Charles three times a week for two months, I saw a 150 point increase in my official GMAT score. I would recommend Charles to anyone who plans on taking the GMAT or any other standardized exam.

Howard Siegerman tutored both my daughters in Algebra and Geometry. He is very patient and kind. He also has a great way of asking the student a question to get them thinking about the answer themselves - he does not just do problems with them. He fully explains the process and then works to reinforce the new skill with additional examples. I would highly recommend his tutoring services.

Thomas Meli has been tutoring my son for the SAT for months, both on line and in person. He keeps my son engaged and wanting to do better. Tom is patient, easy going and yet very positive and motivating all at the same time. My son continues to enjoy the whole experience. Tom’s approach is based on comprehension and he teaches his students study techniques they can apply for the SAT and beyond. He has helped my son bring his SAT grade up by 160 points and he is currently working at doing even better!

The job was to tutor my daughter in Math who at the time was struggling. She was failing all her test and her teacher tried as did I. When Horace came in he was so patient and understanding, they fell into a very nice rhythm. When she didn't understand the way he was explaining he would find other ways until she got it and he never gave up or got frustrated. She started to pass her class exams and the best was passing her Math and ELA exams . Horace was amazing and I started recommending him to any and everyone. He made such a difference and it helped with my daughters confidence . I highly recommend him for your company

    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.

    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.

    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 do you prepare for the ACT?

    The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

    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.
