Anne is terrific! She has been tutoring my 13-year-old daughter in Spanish since June. Over the summer, she helped fill in the gaps in her knowledge of 7th grade Spanish, including the preterite tense. Now, Anne is helping to ensure that she stays on top of the material in 8th grade. I highly recommend her!

My son was preparing to study on his own for the SAT and didn’t score very well on practice exams. I decided to get him some tutoring help him on the test. My neighbor used Arbor Tutors for their daughter and recommended them to me. It’s been 4 months since he began his tutoring and the results are noticeable. He now has effective study habits that will surely help him get a great score on the test.

    My son has been attending Omega for a few months now. He just started 3rd grade. We recently moved to the area and he was going to be starting a new school so I wanted to make sure he was 100% ready for 3rd grade. Not only is he ready, he's doing amazing! I have never heard so many positive comments from a teacher about my son before! Homework time isn't a fight anymore, he looks forward to school, and is always excited to go to omega. He loves his teacher there ( yes it is a REAL teacher) and they have really helped by adapting to his learning styles. I also love how I receive daily emails about his progress. It's nice because if he's struggling with a concept I can talk to his teacher and we can work together to get him to understand. He also loves the prize shelf! He's always so excited when I pick him up from omega and he actually wants to tell me what they did and what he learned. Omega has been a blessing to my family and I highly recommend their tutoring services to anyone!

    About

    If your son or daughter is struggling in school, it might be time to consider getting them extra help. Often times, elementary concepts do not hit home, and the proper foundation for many different reasons does not lay: because of this, children will struggle later on due to this foundation not being solidified. I can offer your child assistance in Mathematics, reading, language, phonics, test prep, study skills, etc. I am married and father of five children, ages 6-20. I have a wealth of experience. From one parent to another, our days are so much easier when our kids do not struggle with school and homework. Let me help you! I will travel a reasonable distance to your home, and hourly tutoring charge of $25.00 to $30.00.

    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 do you study for the SAT?

    Your SAT prep strategy can mean the difference between a great score and a mediocre score, as well as the difference between being accepted to or rejected by your school of choice. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that measures a student’s knowledge and understanding of what they have learned up to this point in school and what they need to succeed in college. In addition to arming students with the knowledge they need to excel in the math, reading and writing components of the test, SAT prep can help improve scores by teaching students crucial strategies for taking the test itself. Professional SAT prep tutors can work with students one-on-one or in group sessions. Typically, tutors recommend that students who are comfortable and caught up with their regular schooling begin SAT prep at least three months before the test. If you’re targeting an elite school, six months before the test is a good time to begin. Students who are behind in school are advised to start early to ensure they’re caught up and feeling confident in all the relevant subjects. Suggestions for long-term SAT prep include taking challenging high school courses, completing all homework assignments, preparing for class tests and quizzes, and participating in class by asking and answering questions. There are free SAT prep training tools online; for those who’d like a one-on-one tutor to take them to the next level, the national average rate is $70 per hour.

    What is ACT test prep?

    The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

    • English
    • Science understanding and reasoning
    • Math
    • Reading
    • Writing essay (optional)

    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 do you prepare for the ACT?

    The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.
