Bob is excellent! He helped my daughter get over a "slump" in algebra, and now she is doing really well. He is punctual, professional, and kind. I love that he also shared stories of his own learning experiences, teaching, and family life with my daughter. Highly recommended!

Dane is a wonderful, funny, straight forward educator, with the best sense of humor. He has a fantastic approach with kids by showing them respect. He is able to build up their practical skills, all while encouraging them to reach and stretch their goals. I highly recommend Dane for any tutoring need you have. He has helped my sons Algebra 2 grade improve from almost failing to top in the class. He also has mentored him in his approach with teachers and coaches. He has shown him that accountability goes a long way and that you can succeed with hard work.

Mr. Miller has been working with my daughter with her reading disability for over a year now and she just had her best report card ever. He often discussed with me and my daughter what she is doing in school to make sure they are on the same page. She enjoys going to tutoring, as much as a 12 year old can!. He's friendly, easy to talk to, easy to schedule sessions with. I am so glad we made the decision to use him as her tutor and will continue to use him as long as she needs additional help.

    John is great as a tutor. He is able to break down complicated concepts so that any level student can understand them. He was great for helping both me and my younger sister in statistics, chemistry, algebra, geometry and whatever else we needed.

    Ms. Musick has been working with my 9th grade daughter in Algebra II. I can't not say enough about how this tutoring has change my daughters math experience — she has gone from struggling with homework and tests to a consistent understanding of the math process. Additionally, she has gone up 2 full grades in the time that Nancy has been working with her. Nancy is a caring and patient teacher who has more then once adjusted her schedule to work with my daughter for tests and midterms. I highly recommend her services and greatly appreciate her professionalism.

    Our son was failing Algebra miserably when we found Dr. Dave. After a few weekly meetings Dr. Dave, we saw slight increases in his average and by the end of the quarter, our son went from an F to a C+! But equally important his confidence grew too! Our son was always enthusiastic to work with Dr.Dave and frequently came home with some new idea or tip he learned on how to work a problem. Now, we won't say that our son has fallen in love with Math but surely Dr. Dave has shown him that Math is not something to fear - you just gotta figure out the best way to tackle it. Thank you Dr. Dave! We're going to need you for the Fall semester too! - The Traores'

    Marc helped me get from a 1250 to a 1330 on only 4 weeks. He’s a great guy and truly knows and understands what he’s talking about. He doesn’t make the lessons feel like lessons at all, they are very easy to learn from and sit through.

    My 7th grade year in Algebra I Honors, I started to face adversity when it came to critical thinking and analyzing my materials for exams. I contacted Dianne Le and ever since the first session I have changed my work ethic and have become a better individual. Although the rigor tried to take over and frustrate/limit my abilities, Dianne knew how to teach me to limit my stress and make outlines instead of burning out. Whenever my normal teachers approach on a problem did not 'click' Dianne would go out of her way to make me understand it in another way through her artistic abilities. Thanks to Dianne, I managed to raise my grade from a C to an A; later allowing me to apply to a scholarship program and get in. Later on in 8th grade whenever I needed help for my program she would always be available and often made the commute to my town regardless of her tight schedule. Right now Im in 9th grade and Dianne still reaches out and helps me out whenever I am in need. She even took her time to send me a list of service learning opportunities 2 years later!! She is no longer just my math tutor, but she has become a role model and some may even say my mentor. Kudos to her

    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.
