Vincent has been tutoring my son for the past few months. He is patient, thoughtful, and always comes with positive attitude. He is able to lower the stress level and anxiety of preparing for school tests and assignments. He also teaches life skills and techniques of how to prepare for hard tasks at school. I recommend Vincent and am very thankful that he is able to help our family.

Chuck worked with my raising 5th grader to review the past year and work on upcoming skills. He was great with her. Very patient and made it fun for her. She didn't hate tutoring the way she thought she would. He explained everything on her level and really helped her gain confidence in her math skills. We hope to continue with Chuck during the school year.

Planting Seeds Tutoring is awesome! From their professionalism all the way down to the quality of tutors. I have two children who have struggled with math & reading and their confidence was very low. It's been 2 months and my children have improved their confidence & understanding of the subject. Also, they can't wait for the next tutoring session because they use a unique approach that best fits my children. I would highly recommend their services.

The company replied in a timely manner and arranged for SAT tutors to connect with my student right away. We were given an opportunity to select which type of tutors my daughter would listen to...authoritative or patient. We also liked the fact that there were many tutors to choose from.

Chris himself is very nice to work with but some of his tutors not so much. As a concerned parent I'd highly recommend to re-evaluate the tutors.

Claire has had a great improvement in her algebra course as a freshman with Ms. Vecera. She is punctual, understanding, calm and to the point with her skills. It took Claire a good 4 lessons to know that we were with the right person. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a true up to date math tutor.

Our son is smart but lacked confidence when it comes to math. Add to that a doctor in physics filling in as the calculus teacher and it was a bad mix. Eric helped Josh not only pass his senior year math class with room to spare, but even helped him to dislike math a little less and feel more confident. Eric was also fabulous with scheduling. Josh was a two-sport athlete and had a job. Eric was willing and able to work around Josh's crazy schedule. We couldn't have made it through senior year without Eric.

I attended classes at Southwest Institute of technology where Mr. Cochrane is a teacher and tutor. He explains each piece of a process in detail. He is also very good at explaining why a process is done. When it came to me not understanding a problem or wanting to touch up my grade, he offered excellent after class tutoring. My grades significantly improved when I attended his tutoring session. He is an Outstanding Teacher and Tutor.

    About

    I was in an Americorps program that specialized in tutoring students for two years, and I have my certification for teaching elementary. For me, seeing the small successes of a student gaining confidence in their abilities is the most rewarding part of my job.

    About

    I love teaching and helping students realize their own potential as their grades and test scores improve. As a former military officer and associate professor of naval science, I have had the privilege of sharing my passion for teaching with students of all ages and backgrounds. My educational background consists of a BS degree in Computer Engineering Technology, MS degree in Organizational Leadership and Management, and Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) certifications in Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word. I have also taught college algebra for two years, home schooled grades 2-12, tutored students in elementary school and college, and served as a Bible school teacher for more than 20 years in several local churches. I tutor because it allows me to work with students one-on-one, to give each person the individual time and attention needed so that they understand difficult concepts and learn how to work more efficiently and effectively. I specialize in General Math, Algebra, Conversational English, and basic computer courses (Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint). I can also assist students in other subjects such as Reading, English and Science. My approach to tutoring varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. It is my goal during each session to help students learn to solve problems, but more importantly, I want to encourage and inspire them to enjoy learning! I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence grows. I use questions and real-world examples to check understanding throughout the sessions. When assisting with homework, I will provide similar examples but will not do the students’ homework for them! To ensure that students have a comfortable study space, I am happy to travel to your home or to a location of your choosing. Although I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I’m very flexible with time and will work with you to schedule make-up sessions. Feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule a session. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

    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 I prepare for the GMAT?

    If you’re thinking of enrolling in graduate school to earn your MBA, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Working with a GMAT tutor is for many people a wise investment to help you strengthen the academic areas you may be weak in and improving your overall test score. A GMAT prep tutor should teach you not only the kind of information you need to know for the test, but the best test-taking strategies. The GMAT tests you on four categories: quantitative, verbal, integrated reasoning, and an analytical writing assessment. Cramming is probably not going to give you good results for this standardized test; give yourself between two and six months to prepare, focusing on your most challenging areas first. Successful GMAT prep means planning ahead and studying thoroughly. Those students who reported studying under 75 hours were more likely to score 400 or lower on the test, while students who studied 121 hours or more were more likely to score 700 or higher on the test. Hiring a GMAT prep tutor can range in price from under $50 to over $200 per hour.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
