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.

I wish we would've started with Arbor Tutors in the beginning. I've been very bad at math my entire life. Arbor went above and beyond of what I needed.

Ralph has been incredibly patient with me. He has helped me not only reach my goals in my class, but he has also helped me feel more comfortable with math in general. Ralph is a wonderful tutor!

Angela has been focused, patient, and clear in every session I had with her. She takes the appropriate time to explain each concept and tailors her curriculum to the student. She worked with me to prepare me for a math placement exam. I had limited time to learn a good many concepts and she did a wonderful job addressing each one in a timely manner. I highly recommend Angela for your math tutor!

Ralph and I started sessions a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with him. I have really noticed a confidence boost in my math skills and I understand the materiel. I told Ralph at first that my predicament involved not being able to grasp and fully understand the concepts I was being assigned. Ralph gave me the tools to understand these concepts and helped me break down problems. Ralph really helps me understand Math at its core and actually teaches me the basics in understanding the most complicated of problems. Ralph also responded to all of my messages very quickly and has been easy to communicate with. Id recommend Ralph to anybody looking for a tutor who adapts to your skill level and needs.
