Michelle is a wonderful math tutor. My daughter had to retake a geometry exam for 9th grade. She only had three weeks to prepare. Michelle worked really hard with my daughter and she passed the exam. In those 3 weeks my daughter said she learned more than she did all year with her math teacher. We will continue to use her throughout the school year for algebra. Thank you Michelle!

Oliver tutored me for my Statistics exam among other Math related courses. I struggled with math all of my academic life and Oliver was well aware of my fears and weaknesses with math in general. He was able to accommodate his teaching style to my needs. I would not have passed otherwise. Oliver is very kind, hard working, smart and reliable. I owe him a lot of credit for helping me get through my courses in math!

My daughter was failing math. After just a few sessions shes not only getting A's but shes learning math at a higher grade level. He is really good at evaluating what it is the student is not understanding and presenting it to the student in a way that they do understand. Great tutor.

The online tutoring works really well. At first I was hesitent, but my daughter took to it immediately. We had a traditional math tutor for her in middle school who would visit twice a week. Online is much more convenient. Professor Holton is a fabulous instructor. We couldn't be more pleased

Mike Donn was an effective and valuable volunteer tutor in the Workforce Readiness program at United South End Settlements for a little over two years. Mr. Donn assisted both Pre-GED and GED level students in math. He bonded well with studeents and held them accountable. Students were eager to work with him and showed marked improvement in conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and the ability to apply what they had learned. Perhaps most important was his ability to boost students' confidence in their skills and in themselves. In addition, Mr. Donn also delivered several well received Financial Literacy workshops for students, and one summer he lead a tutorial drop-in for our lowest level students. During his time volunteering at USES, I considered Mr. Donn to be a valuable asset. David Lowe Math Teacher United South End Settlements

Elisha is a very qualified tutor. She not only knew the subject material well, she was very patient and made sure I understood everything well. She helped me prepare for my SAT. Before I sought tutoring, my math score was 440 and after studying with Elisha, my math score went up to 690. I can’t recommend her enough.

Ms. Tolu is an outstanding tutor. My son was having difficulties in his math class. With her help, he was able to gain a better understanding of the algebra concepts and to improve his overall performance in his class. Highly recommended her!

Working with Peter has been very helpful. I am a sophomore in high school, and am in an intense honors math class. Peter has helped me significantly with algebra, pre calculus, and geometry. I strongly recommend him to anyone who struggles with math from the middle school to the high school level.

Marina has been working with my son on a regular basis to strengthen gaps in his knowledge. She is always warm, patient, understanding and encouraging. She quickly discovered and has helped fill the gaps in my son's knowledge base and after just one session he brought his grade up on a midterm exam from an average C- to a high B. My son is developing study skills and good habits of learning that he has never had since working with Marina and the combination of all of the above is greatly increasing his confidence. Marina is Innovative and flexible and tutors my son online. She provides focused support through Skype sessions, email, and text messages and coaches students to use Khan Academy and other resources effectively. In short, Marina is a dream tutor and my son has decided to follow his long standing dream of studying computer science which he had given up when he began to struggle in math. Marina is a life changer!!!! Can't say enough good things about her.


I am offering tutoring in the following areas: math (pre-algebra, algebra I and geometry); science (high school biology, chemistry and conceptual physics); SAT math preparation. Morning, afternoon and evening hours are available.  I have 10 years of teaching middle school and high school science and math. I earned my PhD in geochemistry and I have experience working as an environmental geochemist. I have developed curriculum for schools and after-school science clubs, and taught both.  I try to create a warm and engaging learning environment that supports their executive functioning needs and works with all types of learners. I find learning fun and hope to make it that for my students. Lastly, I see math and science in the world all around us and try to infuse an understanding and appreciation of these in our daily lives.


Tutoring in Math and French, minimum time 4 hours a week. My business name is "Tte Tte". I am very experienced in MCAS/MATH preparation.


Hi, my name is Stephanie, and I am excited to help your son/daughter achieve the confidence he/she needs in order to be successful in mathematics. I have had two previous math tutoring jobs. One of my tutoring jobs focused on a third grader's need to become successful in her multiplication facts. I came to each session with a fun game to help her practice her facts or with different tricks that helped her remember the tables. We practiced timed tests, and this allowed her the confidence she needed to succeed. My other tutoring job was for a seventh grader. I helped him work on homework weekly and showed him important study strategies for math. I think a lot of students don't know how to study for math, so that was key for his success.


I have no idea what other tutors do --- I know, from feedback from students and parents, that I do an excellent job --- first, I know my subject matter (math, physics) --- second, I like helping people --- third, I am very patient --- fourth, I ask leading questions of the student, so as to guide that student into discovering for himself/herself, as much as possible, what is involved in understanding, and then solving, the problem at hand


I have been a high school math teacher since 2007. I have experience teaching the following subjects: * Algebra I * Algebra II * Statistics * Geometry I also have tutored in SAT math preparation.


I am a pharmaceutical chemistry student at MCPHS University. I have a extremely strong foundation in math (all types) and science. Therefore, I want to tutor in math and science, SAT subjects, SAT and some AP subjects for K1-K12 students and college freshmen. I guarantee the best result.


I work with students to ensure they understand the challenging concepts that present themselves in math and science courses. I focus on giving students the intellectual tools to further their own learning in an independent setting. I provide my students with custom-made resources and tools to guide them without my explicit help.


We offer computer, guitar, and math lessons for beginner to intermediate levels. Our lessons are stress-free and at your own pace. Try it out!

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.
