I've been out of school for a couple years and needed to prepare again to take GMAT. Couldn't be happier when I found Arbor Tutors. Superb support with excellent tutors. I can't recommend them enough!

My son is an honor student whose sights are on college. We took an extended trip out of the country last term that was a once in a lifetime opportunity we couldn’t pass up. All grades re-bounded but the Math grade got hit hard. With VERY little time to raise his now failing grade back to his A, we found Aron. We’re so happy we did! He was EXTREMELY willing to work with my son’s busy extra curricular schedule, and made himself available for extended lessons; as there was so much to go over in a short amount of time. Thanks to Aron, my son was able to recover an A-. That’s pretty remarkable! He’s knowledgeable, flexible, professional, and the best tutor we’ve found to date! We’d highly recommend him! Couldn’t be happier.

Aaron was adaptable to scheduling and was there when we needed his help. I liked the feedback from Aaron from the lessons and would recommend him to any high level high school student, college, and working career professional.

One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.

John is a very good teacher - he helped me gain confidence behind the wheel and on the road. I learned a lot in the few lessons that I've had with him, things that go beyond the license test. He is very patient, concise and attentive!

Manny has taught me the basics of some mathematical concepts that I have lost since I have stopped attending school. With this basic knowledge he has informed me is the best way to build my way to practice GRE quality problems to prepare myself for the exam. I like Manny's patience and teachable attitude. He is a pleasure to work with. Hans

Robert is enthusiastic and insightful. He is direct and uses well every minute of the lesson. He is positive and encouraging as I read out loud, answer questions and do exercises. His enthusiasm is motivating and his specific comments aid in my understanding of how the language works. His professionalism is complimented by a friendly personality. I look forward to my lessons each week and highly recommend him to other individuals who want to learn to speak and to read Italian.

Student Information: • Current senior in high school. • Received tutoring in Calculus (currently taking AP Calculus BC). Tutor was very thorough. He made sure I had a strong pre-calc/calc foundation established before he moved onto more difficult topics. He continually reinforced previous lessons and connected them to new lessons. He not only taught lessons but also gave problem-solving strategies for problems in past AP tests. In my opinion, Mr. Siegerman is a very experienced and intelligent tutor.

I really like working with Bina because she customizes her approach and lesson plans based on my need and my weakness. Bina provides materials and homework prior to each class, which is great because it forces me to study more! I also have a crazy schedule, and Bina has been very kind, accommodating my ever-changing schedule.

I like my ESL lessons with Marion. She taught me not only the language but also the American culture, which I'm very interested in. Besides that, she is such a nice person that talking with her is always enjoyable.

This is not your regular tutoring! This is brain science wrapped in an ACT lesson! I had my younger brother work with Katya for 6 months and she helped him make a huge improvement in his ACT Score. I have never seen my brother so happy with his results.

Stacy was AMAZING when she worked with my daughter, Clementine, when we were worried about her reading ( and writing ). We came to Stacy when my daughter was in 2nd grade, and I am so HAPPY with the results!!!!!!! Clementine LOVES to read. She became a kid who could not put down a book! And she became an incredible test taker, with top scores, I don't mean to brag, it is just here is a kid who we were WORRIED about... I must say, Stacy gives a lot of homework, that focuses in on the mechanics of reading, and we had our daughter do it. And, I think that really helped. Clementine progressed so quickly, with Stacy. I am VERY Pro---the Orton Gillingham technique. Long ago, when I was a kid, in the 70's, I did not know how to read, and unfortunately I fell through the cracks with methods that did not work for me. But, finally in 4th grade, I got an Orton Gillingham tutor, and I did miraculously, with this technique . I was a struggling kid, academically, who then went on to do really well in high school, and went to a really great college (Oberlin), and then Graduate School (NYU). I don't mean to brag, but my point is, I believe in this technique, and Stacy is FANTASTIC !!! She is the best....worth every penny, but have your kid do the homework.

Ridhi has given three Algebra lessons to my ninth grader so far. From my observation, Ridhi has the knowledge and the right skills in this area. I am waiting for the school test scores to see the actual results.

Danny is really great. I am working with Danny to take the CLEP exam in Algebra and it has been many, many years since I have been in school, so I remember very little about the subject. Danny is very knowledgeable and warm and immediately puts me at ease. He is dependable and calm and always manages to lift my spirits when I get discouraged. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I found Ben through a tutoring company. My son needed a "homework helper" when he was in Middle School after being diagnosed with a learning disability. Ben showed great patience and helped him to stay focus and organized. We liked him so much that when my younger son was in elementary school and had some reading issues we went right back to Ben. Noticing my young son's lisp he incorporated music and auditory things into the mix which totally worked in helping him through this awkward stage. Fast forward to the present and my son with learning disabilities is a Junior at Hamilton College and my young son is at the Dalton School and is doing very well. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Ben. He connects to people, especially young people and he really cares about helping them. It's great we don't need him anymore but sad at the same time.

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.

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!

Ben has been my go-to math tutor for two years now. He is simply the best! I have worked with Ben on GMAT help (algebra, geometry, word problems, ect.) and Graduate-level school work (mainly statistics). Ben makes himself available all days of the week for tutor sessions. He is willing to meet in person or Skype with you. I do several sessions with Ben via Skype now because we live on separate sides of the coast. The reason I have continued to keep Ben as my tutor even after I relocated from NYC is because of how great of a math tutor he is and how well we get along. He has a very simple and relaxed way of breaking down problems and approaching them differently if you are struggling to understand the information. He can also help with a wide variety of mathematical subjects. My overall math grades and test scores have significantly improved thanks to Ben! He truly is a 5 star math tutor! Michelle

Went above and beyond. Child had been enrolled in both recreation group lessons and multiple private instructors. Still deathly afraid of the water. Working with Ali over that season, she not only stopped clutching the wall for dear life, she gained a passive confidence in the water and trust in herself. Was amazing the first time she tried a little back-float. She was ecstatic! After that wall was leveled, we finished the school year with her getting into her freestyle and backstroke. Totally different girl in the water.

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.
