As the tag lines says, "Bill Knows Math"! We hired him for SAT math prep and we purchased the book he recommended, which he knows backwards and forwards. He leads very energetic tutoring sessions revealing his passion for helping kids learn the content. My daughter was more engaged than I've normally seen her with math. His help provided her the confidence she needed for the SAT.

My daughter has come across many tutors, but non like Nema. Simply put – Nema is passionate about learning; an essential characteristic of any tutor. He empowers you to master the art of math in a way I have not seen before. I’ve observed his method of story-telling and repetition to help my daughter learn math concepts. In a matter of three visits, she has learned trigonometry and then some. What I also value is the reinforcement work that Nema leaves her with after each visit. I am utterly pleased with Nema’s performance and his price range, which many families can work with.

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.

Ms. Niki was a great tutor who was in constant contact with me throughout the course of my college calculus class. She went above and beyond to help me understand the material as well as sending additional study materials after the tutoring hours. Highly Recommend!

Having Jessica as my son's reading tutor was short-lived due my him receiving a free tutor through his aftercare program right after we hired her. However, the 2 sessions he had with her were productive. He really liked and responded well to her. If necessary, we would enlist her services again.

Neza has been awesome. She's helped re-build my son's confidence in his pre-calc skills. She's also been personable, friendly, and very easy to work with. She's diligent and always prepared each week to work with my son on his particular needs. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone in search of a math tutor.

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!

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.

We have worked with her over two sessions and plan to continue. She does real well keeping the student on task and talking out what is necessary to build comprehension and understanding.

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.
