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.

My son had a great experience with his tutor. He did a great job of making math accessible to a typically math-averse student.

Dawnella has done a great job of bringing our son up to speed in Algebra. He has gained confidence in the areas where he was struggling before and enjoys math more now that he has a better understanding of the subject. We highly recommend Dawnella as a tutor!

Andrew was a fantastic tutor. As someone who’s always struggled in math it was nice to have someone who didn’t make me feel judged for not understanding the subject as well as he does. Andrew was able to help me with math that I had forgotten years ago and completely refresh my memory along with giving me the necessary tools to be able to go home and re-create problems to work on and practice on before my big test. Five gold stars ⭐️

Stefanie is fantastic! She is working with my son this summer to get him up to speed in math. He really likes her and we appreciate her laid-back approach. No stress. She even offers him water and a snack every week. I recommend Stefanie Foster and Brain Sparks Tutoring.

Eric has been a lifesaver. My son (sophomore in high school) was despairing about his ability to understand math and totally discouraged. Eric has completely turned things around for him. My son is always so relieved after a tutoring session because things suddenly make sense to him. Eric has also been extremely accommodating and flexible with complex, ever-changing schedules.
