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.

Dan is a great tutor. He looked at what I was having trouble with and came up with a plan to bring my score up. He taught at my level (starting with basic algebra), sent me homework to review, and had the patience of a saint. He's also a nice guy — after our first session at Starbucks, I felt 100% comfortable having our second appointment at my kitchen counter. Ten sessions with Dan were far more helpful than the eight-week course I begun working with him. I'd highly recommend him to anyone seeking a great math tutor, for the GMAT or anything else.

Jeremy is very knowledgable, professional education coach who has mastered his field of child tutoring. Aside from being a fine math tutor, he is also helping our child with organization skills. Even though he is new to us, I can say that he is dedicated and dependable. There are no screaming matches in the house regarding her math work and she has started enjoying math which is a big plus. I would highly recommend Jeremy without any reservations. Regarding his fees; you may find a range of tuition fees on thumbtack but essentially you get what you pay for. Having a professional business myself I can tell you that he is certainly worth your child's education and self esteem Dr. K

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!!

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!

I came to Dr Fikar as a senior, for help with my ACT. Having already worked with a few different tutors, and having only gone up by a couple of points, I was not optimistic that Dr Fikar would have anything new to add to what had already been done. We worked all of the Fall semester, and I took the ACT two more times. My final score was high enough to get me into one of my dream schools, Duke!! Dr Fikar took my ACT up a total of 8 points higher than what I had when we started. I'm so glad my parents made the investment, because it made all the difference for me. Thank you, Dr Fikar!

Mr. Parez was my tutor in high school for about a year to help me prepare for the SAT exam. The tutoring sessions were very convenient because they were done over Skype. Having the tutoring sessions done over Skype cut out time/money that would have been put into travel. Mr. Parez was always accommodating when it came to scheduling my tutoring sessions around my busy schedule. Mr. Parez had me take a preliminary SAT exam to see the areas of the exam I excelled in and which areas I struggled with. He helped me improve significantly in the areas I struggled in through various personalized lessons and homework assignments. Mr. Parez helped me to raise my score significantly. I believe that achieving a higher score on the SAT exam made me a stronger College applicant and helped me to get into 7 out of 7 Colleges that I applied to, including my top choice, of which I am now in attendance. I highly recommend Mr. Parez for any of you tutoring needs.

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!

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!

Mrs. Nolan is an excellent teacher as well as a tutor. She prepared my sister and myself better than we could have imagined for the SAT/ACT. She is prompt and efficient. Mrs. Nolan also tutored me in preparation for the AP Language exam and I earned a score of 4 (out of 5) thanks to her dedication. The following year she continued to make herself available to me by helping with the final touches on my college essay and supplemental college writings. We are both grateful for her commitment and enthusiasm while tutoring us both. Anyone that will have Mrs. Nolan as a tutor should consider it a privilege!

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.
