I signed up for GRE tutoring and Arbor helped me raise my score to a 330. I was accepted into several Ivy League graduate programs. I'm very happy with the results.

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.

I hired Jeremy to tutor me in the ACT. I contacted him planning for to get at least a 30 on the ACT. I am now aiming for a 34 on my next ACT due to Jeremy's tutoring. He has been exceeding my expectations in the way he deconstructs the test and makes doing well on it so much easier. In addition, he serves as my college adviser, and I have finally been given some good direction in the complex college process. Right now, I am looking into high level schools like multiple Ivy League schools, WashU in St. Louis, Vanderbilt, Tufts, and Bucknell. Also, he is very flexible with scheduling and very personal with students and family. Highly recommended!

Terrific Tutor! Sasha is very patient and always willing to explain things in multiple times, using many different examples. My understanding of college level Physics improved within a few sessions. I have been with Sasha for over a year now at the collegiate level, and I would not look for another tutor.

Aron was preparing me for SAT and helping me in my college Algebra class. Thanks to him I did well on both tests. He is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who is capable to teach math on any level. He is much better than any tutors I had in the past. Definitely would recommend him.

Dr Fikar has been an invaluable resource for our family of five children. Four out of five have already utilized his services, with tremendous success. Each of our kids are unique in their level of ability and Dr Fikar was able to have an impact on each one. We started out using a free Class offered by the school, and then gradually upgraded to tutors who, while very smart and nice, were unable to give us the dramatic score increases we needed. Until we began working with Dr Fikar, we didn't realize how much potential our children had. The money we have spent on tutoring for our children has been one of the best investments of time and money we have ever made, as his services have allowed our children to gain admission into some of the most elite universities in the country, and we are now confident that their financial futures will be secure. We cannot wait to begin sending our fifth child to him.

I struggle with applications of mathematics in the sciences. Physics and chemistry to be specific. So I knew I needed a tutor for my intermediate chemistry course. Aaron made chemistry make sense! He is patient and knowledgeable and has an ability to explain mathematical concepts in a way that really helped me LEARN the material, not just memorize things. For me, having Aaron as a tutor made the difference that I needed as he fundamentally understands chemistry and can explain it in ways that I am capable or understanding. He helped with some of my lab work and helped me understand how what was written on the paper correlated to our procedures. I would absolutely recommend Aaron as a tutor to anyone experiencing similar problems, or even just to anyone that wants a tutor that explains things at YOUR level, because he is very capable of doing that. He has a very positive attitude and a charming personality which made the learning process so much easier! He is one of my new favorite people!

Odyssey Test Prep was by far the best decision I made for getting ready for the LSAT. The tutors this company has on staff are top notch and know what their doing. I came to Odyssey with a 150 LSAT score and my score increased 20 points to a 170 within the time that I worked with them which is something that I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. So if you're looking to increase you're LSAT score go with Odyssey it will be the best move you can make.

You know it’s a nightmare out there, looking for the right fit for your kids when you are searching for test prep tutors. I have twins going into the SATs and there are just so many bad teachers out there. I really had to ask Chelsea International a lot of questions when I came across them. I have to say, they blew me away. Not just with their professional nature, but also with their level of expertise, care, and true understanding of what it takes to bring out your child’s fullest potential. I would recommend this tutoring service to anyone. The kids have been working with them now for the last few months, and the difference in their work is amazing. I am really looking forward to seeing their scores after their SAT tests.

I highly recommend Horace, he is an amazing tutor! Horace helped me improve my score from a 570 to a 710 after just a couple of weeks of tutoring sessions! He is very patient and strategic in his approach. He made sure to understand my testing strengths and weaknesses and tailored his approach to meet my needs. He was also very accessible and invested in my success - he spent several hours sitting through practice exams with me (via virtual sessions) so he could get a real sense of where I needed to improve and spent several hours reviewing both incorrect answers as well as correct answers that I could be answering more quickly or more efficiently. I can honestly say I would not have scored a 700+ score without Horace in my corner.

Ben has been tutoring our 4 year old daughter for about 4 months now. She LOVES "Mr. Ben" and always looks forward to her time with him. He's incredibly flexible and is able to adjust so effortlessly, incorporating whatever distraction or request she has into the session in a productive way. He's able to make everything so much fun for her. Highly recommend!!

Sandy is a great tutor. The moment I walked into her working space we felt (my family & I) welcomed by Sandy with a great warm smile. I automatically felt comfortable with her, as she seemed very caring and eager to help. I told her that my son needed a lot of help with reading and she told me not worry and that he will have a great learning experience. She has been very understanding of my son needs. She even reach out to his teacher in school to be on track with his needs. Sandy has also manage to fit his classes at convenient times and is always reachable by phone. I strongly recommend Sandy, she truly care about transforming my son into a confident and fluent reader. I am very happy and can thanks her enough.

My daughter enjoyed the sessions and felt well prepared after they met. She also helped to boost confidence which has helped in all of her classes. Truly a delight!

I cooincidentally met Dr.Luke and it was the best thing to ever happen to me. At the time I was starting my post baccalaureate to go to PA school, after being out of school for four years. As someone who has had many tutors before, I have to say hands down Dr.Luke is the best I've ever had. He is incredibily knowledgeable (I often called him a genius), but besides that he is a natural teacher. As someone who was completely illiterate in chemistry, he found ways to relate the science to me so that I could understand the concepts. Aside from his teaching and knowledge, Dr.Luke had a unique ability to calm my constant anxiety every time I saw him. When I would get frustrated with myself (which was pretty often), Dr.Luke maintained his compassion and reinstalled his confidence in me, which is rare to find in a tutor. He always checked up on me to see how I was doing and truly cared about my progress. Because of Dr.Luke, I was able to do very well in my post bacc and pursue my goals. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!!

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.
