Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.

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.

I would like to highly recommend Dr. Howard Siegerman as a tutor of both math and chemistry. He tutored by son Tom when he was taking a difficult series of math courses in middle school and high school. With his encouragement and patience he was able to rebuild Tom's confidence. With this renewed confidence and additional practice, Tom's grades improved dramatically. Dr. Siegerman also mentored Tom in chemistry, providing real life experience to theoretical questions. Tom in now at New York University pursuing a degree in biochemistry.

SAT is NO joke! Katya is a laser-focused tutor and helped me get a HIGH score. She actually takes SAT and ACT tests herself and always scores in the 99th percentile. I don’t know any other tutors that do that. She is very smart, but also very cool. We saw each other twice a week for about 5 months before my test. It made a difference of almost 300 points! Use her!!!

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

Akeel has been an amazing mentor for me. He is very good at math and has helped me work through the problems I had in school. He is very persistent and thorough with the problems and their solutions. He will not just teach you a solution to the problem, he will make sure that you KNOW and UNDERSTAND the concept and how to solve similar questions. When I said I wanted to start a new topic, he handwrote bunch of problems and examples to make it simple and understandable for beginners. He also always motivated me to go on brilliant.org (a math problems related website for practice) and enhance my mathematical skills. He is always challenging his students and himself to do better. I will attach a few images of his work to show how much effort he puts into his teaching.

Janet has been doing a wonderful job, and my sister has improved significantly in math! She never thought she'd improve but thanks to Janet, it's happened! She's very friendly and understanding and after about 3 lessons there was already obvious improvement. Thank you so much, Janet, and we look forward for your lessons in the future!

Charles was a great Math tutor. He has a great level of understanding in various areas of of the subject and is able to teach in a way that can help anyone understand. He has helped me as well as many of the students I serve in Algebra, Statistics, and Calculus. He has even been able to help one of my students with special learning needs. In addition, I was able refer Charles to friend who was completing doctorate work and he helped her with her data analysis. Great job!

Ben was an excellent math tutor- attentive, supportive and patient. I worked with Ben to help get myself ready for the GMAT Quant section and I eventually scored a 710 on the test. During every tutoring session he was always able to clearly explain the concepts behind the (very!) complex problems and suggest the best way to tackle the problem (ie. applying a formula, picking numbers, plugging in answers, etc). The most valuable help he provided was teaching me how to "think like a GMAT test maker." He explained that the GMAT test has many logical "traps" where the language in the question tries to complicate or obfuscate the information. He was also great at helping me to understand the abstract reasoning needed for more theoretical Quant problems. Ben gave me the skills to identify and defuse these tricky Quant questions, a skill to which I would attribute my success. He was always able to explain the problems that had me stumped and gave me the confidence to fully conquer the GMAT.

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.
