I could not seem to score well on the ACT. I ended up with Arbor Tutors and had a tutor who met me every week for 8 weeks and when I took the test and got an excellent score (33). Worth every cent.

Nema really really helped me a lot. I ended up passing the course with the grade I wanted (B). He was able to identify my weakness (algebra) and we worked to improve it, he would give me problems related to my weakness so that I would do good on the main problems which were calc related. Nema was very patient with me, knowing that my mother tongue is not english, he would find easy ways to explain the word problems which were one of my main difficulties too. He also taught me shortcuts to solve some problems such as U substitution. He really knows how to teach/tutor and he cares about the student, Nema made sure I understood the topics during our sessions and if not he would give homework so I could practice more. His availability is 5 stars, he was available to help during texts and calls whenever he could. There would be breaks during our sessions which help me to get more focused, Nema has good sense of humor and knows how to keep a person calm and confident, I've got into many situations where I was very nervous or insecure about an exam/quiz and he got me very calm, secure and confident about myself in math. I don't know how to thank him about his help but if I need help in another math related course I'll definitely ask him for help.

Kevin is a dynamic and effective educator. The indepth feedback that he provided to my son on his writing assignments this past school year is what I've been looking for from his private school teachers since grade school. Kevin has exceptional technical knowledge of grammar which is another area he is focusing on with my son as well as helping him to prepare for the PSAT. We started working with Kevin during the last two months of the 9th grade school year. It was awesome to see the pride my son felt in getting a 98% on his last paper of the year and reading his teacher's glowing comments. I am looking forward to seeing my son finally start the new school year ahead of the curve with getting the extra support that he needs. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with Kevin's services. As an educator I know that tutors like Kevin are hard to find.

Mr. Mougy Ahmed has done wonders as a math tutor for our sophomore son! He has a very agreeable, non-threatening tutoring style, and our son enjoyed working with him right away. Our son was getting D's and C's in Algebra II , even with the assistance of a previous math tutor. Mougy came to our house and immediately recognized where our son was misunderstanding foundational concepts in Algebra II, and worked with him to build up that knowledge base and apply those skills correctly. He has been highly responsive in setting up tutoring sessions, sending additional lessons/exercises via email, and even holding extra sessions in advance of math tests/quizzes. As a direct result of Mougy's tutoring, our son earned a B+ and an A on his last two math tests. We highly recommend him to any student or parent who is searching for tutoring assistance.

My son's tutor has worked with him for more than a year transitioning from elementary school to middle school. The tutor showed great flexibility in subject areas and was able to help in virtually any school subject including English, science, math, world studies, and French. My son's improvement and added self confidence has been fantastic!

I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. I was a bit skeptical at first because you never know. It was money very well spent.

I started with her tutoring my 6 year old son in reading/writing he excelled after one report card quarter and was on grade level in no time! So I decided to face her tutor my 10 year old in Math even though he needed extra attention and modified work due to his learning disability ms P never gave up and remained professional always communicating with his teacher as well as myself and husband. He is now on grade level. Both of my boys have been tutoring with ms p for over a year! I like her style of teaching and her consistency. She really pushes my boys just enough!

My daughter is in college with some special learning needs. She is preparing to take organic chem in the fall and Safiya agreed to tutor her several times a week over a month to help prepare her. My daughter really enjoyed working with her and got a great deal out of her sessions with Safiya. If you have a need for an organic chem tutor, you can't go wrong with Sofiya! Highly recommended!

About

I love working with kids and young adults. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Mathematics with the goal of teaching at a high school and/or grade school level. My journey in life led to becoming a Ballroom dance teacher. While my career has me work with a typical age range of 25-60, I went to school to inspire, motivate, and help grade school through high school age children. It has never been a goal of mine to simply teach a subject, whether it is math or ballroom dancing. I am dedicated to making a positive change in people's lives and showing them that they can get through anything if they are willing to do the work. I enjoy working with people from all different backgrounds and walks of life. While I may teach the same material almost daily, I have to constantly find new angles to reach the person and make them feel progress. There is no one way to learn or teach something, so I constantly pull from my experience and other's experience to further my own understanding. I have seen my students make drastic changes in their lives, because I'm passionate about the results and I believe in what I do! Everyday brings new challenges and I'm willing to adapt and change my outlook and process as needed.

Alexa is a gift. I was fortunate enough to have seen an advertisement in our neighborhood circular. I have a 10-year-old who has difficulty with writing. He is a bright kiddo who had been so discouraged with his writing. The process was so hard for him. We had a great tutor before Alexa but, needed convenience. TO MY SURPRISE SHE WAS AN EVEN BETTER FIT FOR MY SON. He has made so much progress in just 4 months. She really pushes him forward but, in a way that has made him feel more confident vs defeated and exhausted. He has gotten his very first "A" in a writing assignment! this is a huge deal for us. He started using much more descriptive sentences, staying on topic, and began building better summaries. The "A" was just the icing on the cake. Alexa is very communicative. She provides great support outside of tutoring. She requests opportunities to speak with his language teachers. She listens to my concerns and has made specific suggestions - like the 10 min fun writing task we do at home a few times a week as a supplement. My kiddo sometimes does not realize we are doing work at all. We started with Alexa as a way to prevent the summer slump and have decided to continue through the school year because we are both incredibly satisfied with the quality of tutoring she provides.

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.
