Very easy to sign up for this service. A little pricy so we chose the basic level which gives you a tutor who is a college student. We anticipate this will be fine for our needs. Really liked that once we purchase hours we can let our other children use them as well.

By the time I found Dan on Thumbtack, I had been working on the GMAT for 1.5 years. I had taken a prep course and used a tutor from the prep course and couldn't improve my practice or official scores beyond the 600-640 range. Further I felt like I had wasted money and time learning "how to approach" the exam instead of learning the content needed to be proficient and able to beat it. Dan was extraordinarily patient and understanding of my frustrations and desire to achieve a 700+ score. From the start, we went back to the basics and corrected several bad habits and dug into content gaps I had in both the quant and verbal sections. Dan was incredibly flexible with hours and locations and made himself available on short notice when I had a few scheduling conflicts and urgent questions. Most importantly, Dan took a personalized approach to our tutoring sessions. He commiserated with me in moments of discouragement and cheered me on when I felt like quitting. I unequivocally recommend Dan to anyone who has tried and failed at the GMAT and is looking at a final short or attempt. He is worth his rate and adds value in more ways than I could have ever received from the prep course and their tutors.

Namzi is professional, punctual and positive. He tutors our 12 year old in algebra and so far the results are very positive. He keeps on schedule and seems to adapt to each students individual need.

Kamil is an incredible tutor!! I could not have tackled the beast that is the LSAT without him. This was my second time taking the law school exam, and Kamil opened my eyes to creative, one-of-a-kind, and effective techniques that I had not learned previously from other tutors and prep classes. He helped me substantially improve my speed and tailored his teaching unique to my specific learning style. Kamil is extremely knowledgable and well-versed in all of the LSAT sections. He is accommodating, professional, kind, patient, trustworthy, and greatly passionte about seeing his students succeed. Kamil was an integal part of my exam preparation, and I could not have come this far without his guidance and support. Since I was taking the exam for a second time, I looked for a tutor who could help me break my old patterns and teach me new approaches. Kamil did just that! He was great at quickly recognizing the way that I learn and very effectively carried out his lessons. I would greatly recommend Kamil to students looking to see successful and quick results. Thank you, Kamil!!

My oldest of three children is 22 years old so I have been through my fair share of tutors. Lenore is the best tutor I have encountered. She really cares for her students and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lenore.

Samantha is one of the best tutors I have ever worked with!!!! I made instant progress just after 1 session. Being pressed for time i only had about 4 sessions, but those 4 sessions helped boost my s.a.t reading and writing score to new limits. I am so thankful for the value I received and 1000000% reccomend Samantha to any 1 in search of a tutor!!

I came to Apex with a 45th percentile in the Quant and a tight deadline for improvement imposed by INSEAD. In just 8 days of preparation Apex helped me increase my Quant score all the way to the 70th percentile! I contacted many tutors but Apex stood out with its tailored, bigger picture approach towards the GMAT. Not only did I score what I needed to for INSEAD and LBS, but I feel more confident in myself and my abilities. They might cost more, but Apex is really worth the money!

My son took the SAT twice, in April and June of this year. He went from an 1170 to an 1130! He needed help, so luckily we got Mr. Goldstein. After 6-7 hrs. of tutoring, my son got his ticket to a better college....1260. It was worth it!

My son has had multiple sessions with Martin over the past couple months preparing for the June ACT, as well as A.P. U.S History and the SAT IIs. He has always come prepared for the lessons, whether in person or via Skype, and was able to assess what my son needed to focus on. Martin has particularly strong History skills, and has generally great advice for standardized exams. Importantly, he also gets on well with my son, and knows how to talk to him about his interests so he feels comfortable. Martin has detailed his Ivy-track application process to us (he was accepted to all of them!) and we will also be working with him when its college time.

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!

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.

How do I prepare for the GMAT?

If you’re thinking of enrolling in graduate school to earn your MBA, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Working with a GMAT tutor is for many people a wise investment to help you strengthen the academic areas you may be weak in and improving your overall test score. A GMAT prep tutor should teach you not only the kind of information you need to know for the test, but the best test-taking strategies. The GMAT tests you on four categories: quantitative, verbal, integrated reasoning, and an analytical writing assessment. Cramming is probably not going to give you good results for this standardized test; give yourself between two and six months to prepare, focusing on your most challenging areas first. Successful GMAT prep means planning ahead and studying thoroughly. Those students who reported studying under 75 hours were more likely to score 400 or lower on the test, while students who studied 121 hours or more were more likely to score 700 or higher on the test. Hiring a GMAT prep tutor can range in price from under $50 to over $200 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 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.
