Can't say enough good things about Gary and his program! My son had taken the ACT test multiple times with no real change in his score. We decided kind of last minute to try Socrates tutoring. After only 3 weeks of tutoring, my son raised his score by 5 points! A true testament to this program! Thank you, Gary and Pam!

I am the mother of an (now graduated) SMU student. I live in Fort Worth and my daughter attended SMU in Dallas, so Rebecca and I have never met. My girl needed expert help passing Spanish, and I found and contracted with Rebecca for tutoring sight unseen. She met with my daughter regularly and improved her skills and my girl DID pass the class. We owe Rebecca a debt of gratitude and I recommend her without hesitation.

Let me preface this all by saying my goal for learning a language is to attain mastery such that I can communicate in all aspects of reading, writing, speaking, listening to a level that is comparable of a native speaker (with reasonable exceptions of course). Previously I had attended several in person learning institutions like a community college, a university, and private in-person tutoring to help me get to an intermediate level. So, in researching other alternatives I was hesitant to pursue telecommuted lessons as I was worried there would be aspects that are not adequately or as easily achieved via in-person teaching. Fluency Corp is a fantastic organization that has ameliorated all of these concerns and done so in an exceptional fashion! The teacher I was paired with is incredibly intelligent, very facilitating, and creates graded work that is at my specific learning level. Additionally any issues we encounter in learning is emphasized in future lessons so that I can hammer out the issues I was experiencing. I purchased 100 hours of education and have been thoroughly please with the experience. So much so that I'm actively looking to see if I can help my spouse participate in this process. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend or family member, and even strangers. The only negative concern I have is that "Fluency Corp" sounds like an evil corporation from a movie. It absolutely is not evil, and is a fantastic organization, however the name just has that kind of feeling to me :)

The quality of the tutoring was top notch that is why we bought a few too many tutoring sessions but they immediately refunded us a couple of hours promptly, with no questions asked. I was very impressed with the service I received. I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors to all of my friends and family.

We started the search for tutoring at the last minute, when I had a deadline for my college application to the military academy. Our tutor Brian showed up to our house and gave us so much information that we later found helpful regarding the SAT and ACT. Brian showed me everything I needed to know about doing well on the math, as well as boosting my confidence and allaying my fears of failure. We found Victory Step indispensable and totally recommend them to anyone looking for quality tutoring that produces tangible, measurable results on the standardized tests.

Mr. Keith is a very good math instructor because he helps me easily understand difficult math topics. He has a more engaging and fun tone than other teachers that makes me want to learn math and works through the problems at our own pace. He also has methods that are simple to remember but really help us solve a problem quick and easy without and hesitation. I would very much recommend Mr. Keith as a math tutor.

Daughter was very hesitant about getting tutoring help, but Michael is pretty laid back and is really helping her understand her geometry homework. Very good at getting her to figure it out with just some prompts if going the wrong direction. Highly recommend him.

Amos tutored me for several weeks leading up to taking the GRE. He was always punctual and very flexible if I had to reschedule due to work conflicts. He's a very patient teacher and really takes the time to break down the concept, slowly building your knowledge until you're able to do the problems. I recommend hiring Amos for GRE tutoring!

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.

We were so happy to find Steve to tutor my son in Math. He was exactly what we were looking for. A person to help my son with his homework each week. He has many years of HS teaching experience and he help my son get through Geometry with an A in the class. His rate is in line with tutoring costs. Which is much less than going to these Tutoring places that require you do build your skills through their own programs vs just helping you with your homework. Those places costs thousands of dollars! We will definitely look up Steve next year when my son takes Algebra 2.

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.

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.

    My son has ADHD and struggles in math. The school only shows the students one way to do things and my son just wasn't getting it. He was frustrated and felt inadequate. Enter Micah. He showed my son many different ways to do things until he found one that clicked for my son. He had so much patience with my son and I could not be happier! My son now has confidence in what he is doing and is ready for what 6th grade is going to bring him this upcoming school year. I am so glad that my son feels prepared for school, and I didn't have to spend a fortune getting him tutoring! Money well spent.

    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.
