I could not ask for more in a Spanish tutor! In a short time, Joanne has already helped me tremendously with my conversation and grammer. She is professional, friendly, and very knowledgable. I look forward to classes with her.

Our tutor, Michael did a fantastic job raising my daughter's score by 3 points. He was very dependable and thorough going through the sessions. Victory Step sent us a detailed report after each session which was also very helpful. Their director, Varun helped us find the right fit. We had a bit of a hiccup in the beginning since their original tutor had to leave town, but Varun matched us with a new tutor the same day. We will be using this company for our next 2 childs.

Michael is an excellent tutor who really makes sure you're understanding the material he's assisting you with. He really makes you think in the process and suggests you say what think without fear of being wrong, because he's truly there to help. He is really flexible and works around your schedule, which for me is a awesome because I work full time and I go to college a couple times a week. I 100% recommend using his tutoring service because he is extremely knowledgeable and a great person. Thank you Michael for helping me with Math.

"A patient, intuitive and smart tutor who really connects with me" Sandeep is an expert. He exceeded my expectations. If you want the best and if you want the best results, go with Sandeep. Sandeep is an excellent tutor. He was extremely thorough and quickly found my weaknesses. he was extremely valuable when he focused on my weak points and we worked together to improve them. He also helped me write, edit and proofread my college applications, essays, resume and cover letter. I had a wonderful experience with Sandeep. I really enjoyed my sessions with him. He is brilliant and he connected with and engaged me and truly made SAT prep fun and positive for me. I was also looking for someone to help me write my personal statement for my college apps and to polish up my cover letter and resume. I was looking for someone with excellent writing skills. Sandeep knows how to how to present my strengths in my essays and applications. I also worked with Sandeep remotely for a while (phone, emails & fax) and that saved a lot of time. Since Sandeep's rate is on the higher side, I did not work with him initially, but after working with him, I know he's totally worth it. Having worked with other tutors in the past, I can say that Sandeep is the tutor and writer you need if you are looking for the best. Don't wait.

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.

I personally enjoy Christine Poquet's style of teaching/tutoring. I like how she doesn't consistently translate, which forces me to think in French. I also appreciate the fact that she's French and she's always inviting us to repeat sentences so we can improve our pronounciation of the French language.

Dr. Lee gave me a great foundation for my college physics class. I was not very good at physics in high school, so I wanted to make sure I did well in my college physics course. I took his tutoring starting in the summer and got an A in Physics I in the fall. I was very impressed and came back for more tutoring in preparation for Physics II. He is a very patient tutor, who answers questions very thoroughly. He was flexible on time with me as well, which I appreciated since I had work and other activities going on. I came out of his sessions having learned alot and I am very happy with the results. Dr. Lee is a kind and knowledgeable person and I will always appreciate how much he has helped me in my college career, on my path towards earning an MD.

I had my first Mandarin tutoring session today with Lotus Languages. My tutor, Sarah, did a great job in teaching me ways to pronounce and remember Chinese words. Learning with her was both challenging and fun. I especially liked that she spent time in Chengdu, were my wife is from, so I can incorporate her dialect. I look forward to our future sessions.

It was great having Mr. Johnson as my sons tutor. He communicated and connected well with my son. He also built his confidence in Algebra. He was struggling until we hired Mr. Johnson. We will be using him again.

I would have never made it through GT Pre-Calculus without Ashley. I have always been a strong student with exceptional grades in Algebra and Geometry, but Pre-Cal overwhelmed me. She made the concepts make sense to me and was very patient when I asked her to re-explain things. She was an excellent tutor.

Ms. Sweat is our new summer reading tutor. Our student struggles in reading, just getting by in 4th grade with in-school tutoring. Going into 5th Grade is going to be a big change; more classes, more teachers, more books and a middle school locker in addition to sports and band! We want to make sure he is ready for the new year and starts off strong. We have met with Ms. Sweat twice so far and plan to meet twice a week over the summer. She is kind and knowledgeable and our student is working well with 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.

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

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.

How much do Spanish tutors charge?

Nationally, the average cost for a Spanish tutor ranges from $30 to $40 per hour. The cost for a Spanish tutor can vary depending on whether you choose private instruction or group lessons. Geographic location can affect cost; tutors in expensive cities and pricier regions command higher rates than in rural areas and small towns. The experience and education of the Spanish tutor will also affect their rates. For adult education, many people learning Spanish choose to join a Spanish school with tutors who teach group classes and also offer private tutoring for students. Typically these schools charge a monthly tuition that gives students access to a set number of classes per week, with private tutoring available at an additional cost. One example of an average cost is a monthly tuition of $200, which includes five 90-minute group lessons per month. Monthly tuition can vary depending on the school and the teachers. Short-term workshops are also a way to learn Spanish. Students may work with a Spanish tutor and group of other students at their skill level for a short period of time. One example of an average price is $100 for an eight-week course, with one 60-minute group class per week.

    I know a decent amount of words but I cant put them together well, like in sentence structure. I can spell words I hear very well and write them but I dont necessarily know what they mean, so pronunciation is decent. I took Spanish in Highschool, retained a little bit.
