Alfonso is the BEST!!! Not only is he fantastic at tutoring, but he is also very respectful and super nice. This was the first time I have ever hired a tutor, and was a bit hesitant at first...all I can say is I'm SO happy I chose him. (Tutoring was for MATH 1350-Lone Star College)

I highly recommend Armin and his company, Ace Tutoring Services. Armin has been tutoring my high-school senior son in physics and precalculus two to four times a week for over six weeks now. Armin is a gifted tutor. He has a magnificent grasp of the material. He knows how to relay the information to my son in a way that my son understands the material. He engages my son in the work and doesn't just "talk at him" like so many tutors do. He explains the basic concepts and then has my son work the problems. He has my son explain back to him why he is working the problems the way he is and the reasoning behind the steps he is taking. I can't say enough about how impressed I am with Armin's skill as a tutor and his personal skills. My son is typically a reluctant student and usually dislikes his tutors. In the past with other tutors, my son has has not been engaged and has just watched the clock, counting down the minutes until the sessions were over. However, my son likes Armin, sees the value in working with him, and generally remains engaged throughout the entire session. Again, I highly recommend Armin and Ace Tutoring.

Oludare provided me with an excellent calculus 1 tutoring service during my calculus 1 recitation. Every time I had a question regarding a specific problem or step, he would answer it right away. He was fast at answering questions and knew his stuff really well. Before tests, he would go over and review the chapters beforehand as sort of a refresher and by the time the test came around I was ready than ever. Other than that, he would also put time aside for us if we ever needed some extra help outside of class. I passed calculus 1 with an A thanks to Oludare's services; an excellent tutor.

I have been unsure about a personal tutor, and Mike and his team made it so easy that I wish I would have hired one sooner!! He has worked with the unexpected changes from dates/times to changes in the subject matter of each session. Cody (our tutor) is always on time and prepared. Even after a month, we saw a noticeable improvement with his school work.

Thomas helped me study for Calculus and Physics. He was knowledgeable and always professional. He helped me to find new ways to learn the material when the ones my professor used didn't work for me. I'd highly recommend Thomas for anyone who needs tutoring help and I'll continue using him whenever I need the extra help.

    I was a little skeptical at first because of how young he was. But he does indeed know his stuff and is an excellent tutor. I'm not exactly great at Math after a 1 session but I learnt a lot of tips and tricks that have made Math problems more easier for me to solve.

    About

    I have been successful in tutoring 2nd to 8th graders from fractions to algebra. I am patient and kind. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in accounting. I make math fun. Students enjoy math more when they realize they "get it". I can help turn that light bulb on. I am firm in the belief that every child can do math even if it's his/her least favorite subject. Let me help. I am also good with college algebra especially for older students returning to college. I can get you out of remedial math so that you can move on to other courses.

    About

    I tutor in both Math and Physics. I am willing to travel in order to teach students in need of additional help.

    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 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.

    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.
