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.

Sasha tutored my Daughter this summer for a college level math course. My daughter has difficulty with math. Sasha was able to keep her interested and make her feel like passing the course was possible if she worked at it. Sasha instilled confidence in my daughter. She was an excellent tutor. My daughter passed the class and felt positive about the experience.

Alysha was an excellent tutor for my middle school daughter. My daughter has a good math mind but wasn't taking studying seriously. The weekly sessions with Alysha really kept my daughter on track and helped improve her math comprehension. Alysha's a very kind and understanding tutor and she and my daughter got along great. If our schedules work out, we'd love to work with Alysha in the fall again!

Couldn't be happier or ask for a better experience. Our daughter, who was always a sort of middling math student and really starting to hate it, was completely transformed by working with Elizabeth. We were sort of shocked (and our daughter very proud) when she ended up with a 100% and an A for her semester grade in geometry. This was up from a struggling C last year. But apart from the grade, I think she really looked up to Elizabeth as a role model and mentor who is not only very smart and good at math, but also working hard in college while doing tutoring as well. All our dealings have been extremely pleasant, professional, and understanding. She is very savvy with teenagers and is actually the first tutor who has ever worked out for us since our daughter tends to be a little headstrong and tends to view tutoring as an imposition on her free time. We never heard one complaint about having to do math, and whereas I am pretty sure she is not going to go on to be a math major, at least she will be able to face required college math courses with a strong foundation, experience with a successful study plan, and no anxieties. Really fabulous all-around.

I gave Alysha the difficult assignment of tutoring my teenage daughter who is very good at math but not too excited by it. Alysha has tapped into her own knowledge and interests to find fun but challenging material, which my daughter is enjoying learning. On top of that Alysha is friendly and easy to communicate with. We're grateful we found her and are looking forward to further sessions.

Danny is a GREAT tutor and it's been a blessing to work with him! He was able to identify the challenges my student had on algebra and used different tools and content resources to make it clear. He always cares about what feedback student has and constantly checks if he has any further questions. He's also very patient when the student is struggle with some topics. I believe Danny can help any student to achieve his/her math goal!
