I am a senior at American University and first contacted Bill to help me prep for the math portion of the GRE. I experienced a jump of over 10 points on my math portion after working with Bill! Bill is an awesome tutor. He is flexible and quick to respond to changes in my busy schedule. He is also high energy and makes the process exciting! It was apparent during our first lesson that Bill really has a passion for teaching mathematics.

Nema was a kind and extremely knowledgeable tutor. He helped to break down complex concepts for my college-level trigonometry/pre-calculus courses and was able to make the lessons easier to understand. He also has a unique ability to connect nebulous theories to real-world scenarios, which really helps for someone who is a hands-on learner, like myself. After working with him, I received high marks in the class, and went on to complete a degree in international affairs and global health. I now work in international development finance. More than 4 years later, I still remember his humor, skill, humility, patience and mentorship. I would highly recommend him to anyone at any level looking to develop a better understanding and appreciation for math and statistics.

My son is a junior in high school and we desperately needed a tutor to help him in AP Calculus. Michael has been a huge help with matching us up with a tutor. Michael listens and fully understands the needs of a student and family struggling in a subject. He took the time and effort to select a tutor that best fit our son's needs and personality. He scheduled an initial "get to know you" session with my son so that they could learn more about my son and to understand his current study and classroom habits, etc. The tutor follows up after each session with feedback on what was covered, what needs more attention and how things are going. So far, so good...and I, as a parent, feel like we are in great hands. I appreciate Michael's attentiveness to our situation. I look forward to seeing my son succeed in this class! I highly recommend A+ Club for Student Success.

With so many options for ACT and SAT preparation, it can be frustrating for parents trying to choose the best option for their children. We didn't have particularly high expectations at the beginning, which is why we were so pleasantly surprised when our son went up 380 points after only about 6 lessons. Based on our experience, Arbor Tutors is a premium service that delivers above and beyond what you pay. We were immediately impressed by their extensive knowledge of the testing process. Worth every penny.

My roommate and I contacted Julia to teach us basic Russian for our travels to Ukraine and Moldova this summer. To date, Julia has provided us with proper instruction, lesson plans, and homework. She has become our mentor and very reliable resource as we prepare for our journey. Julia is very professional and can present her material on all levels, which I can attest to since she teaches the two of us at the same time. She is a kind and genuine person who is always upbeat. It is with great privilege to recommend Julia’s services to anyone who is looking to explore or further their understanding of the Russian language.

Mr. Glass connects well with middle school students. He is patient, funny and has many different ways of teaching the math concepts so that the students truly grasp the information. Our child was not motivated in math before Mr. Glass taught her/tutored her, and now she is very enthusiastic about it. We highly recommend him!

My older daughter struggled in kindergarten with learning sight words and was losing confidence in herself as her classmates were passing her by. So, midway through the school year I started sending her to see Rachelle. By the end of the school year, my daughter completed all the sight word list that were assigned and was confidently reading more complex words and sentences. She started reading at her grade level by the next school year and has been a passionate independent reader ever since. After seeing the wonderful results, I preemptively enrolled my younger daughter to have reading lessons with Rachelle before kindergarten started. When the first day of school began, she was easily reading small books and eager for more challenging assignments. Rachelle's reading program works! My only regret is not using her sooner.

I met Lauren while she worked as an elementary school teacher at my children's parochial school in southern California. She is an excellent teacher in the classroom, providing sound instruction on the school's curriculum, as well as positive feedback to her students. My middle daughter struggled in elementary school. After having Lauren as her teacher, I hired her to tutor my daughter's during the years of 5th-7th grade. My daughter struggled in several areas including: math, reading comprehension, study skills and writing. Lauren met with my daughter in our home on a weekly basis. She used the curriculum that the parochial school provided, as well as, she incorporated different learning modalities, which assisted my daughter in the understanding the various concepts. Today, my daughter is a senior at a university back east, majoring in kinesiology and will graduate in May 2016. I believe Lauren gave my daughter the skills and the confidence she needed to be successful in school. Thank you again Lauren!!! T.S Garden Grove, CA

    Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.

    I am so happy to get to share how wonderful Krista Price has been for my daughter and her writing! Krista has been teaching my daughter writing and grammar for the past three years. She has a kind, dedicated, and effective way of teaching that has drawn out the best in my daughter. I see her love of writing and teaching and concern for her students, and she is readily available to answer questions and follow up with lessons. My daughter has gained confidence and practical ability in her writing as she has learned the skills that allow her to write all types of papers, plus she loves writing! With Krista's teaching, I know my daughter will be prepared for writing when she gets to high school and college.

    My daughter was recently tutored by Sam for a college pre-cal/trig summer school course. The pace was fast and by the time we called Sam, she was in the fifth of her sixth week. By week 5 her grades were taking a downward spiral as the material was getting more complex. She was teetering on the precipice with a C-. After one intense week of working with Sam she finished with a B. He worked magic. He was patient and and an excellent teacher .I initially worried that he would be "too qualified" to tutor the course, but he was able to explain math to my rising sophomore college daughter, who has always struggled with the subject. He was the best math tutor my daughter has ever had. And a very nice man.

      Michelle volunteers with my organization by tutoring an elementary school student in reading. She is always on time, easy to communicate with, delivers lessons with accuracy, and has built a strong relationship with her student. I would especially recommend her for elementary age children -- she is patient and great at gentle redirection.

        In Class Solutions was the solution to my children's homework problems. My tutor, Pamela Mitchell. is super professional, super fast at finding out what my kids were missing academically, and got them exactly what they needed. She also did SSAT prep with my oldest daughter to prepare her for the private middle school admissions process. Overall, I cannot recommend In Class Solutions enough! They were thorough in their assessment of my kids, and continue to be my childrens' secret weapon for getting straight A's in school year after year.

        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.
