Mr. Frampton has been tutoring me in Math (Algebra and Geometry)for a few years and I can say that he's definitely the best Math tutor I've ever had. When I first started working with him, I was terrible in math and didn't have any confidence in my abilities but he was patient with me and cared about making sure I succeeded. He's very knowledgeable and explains everything step by step in a way that I was able to understand. With his help, I've passed tests and received A's in my college courses in math. I've never failed with him and any time I need help in math, he's my go to person. His tutoring has given me the ability to believe that I can be successful in a subject that once wasn't one of my strong suits. Not only is he an excellent tutor, he's a nice person and has a great sense of humor. During our sessions, I would be stressed out but he always knows how to make me laugh and that would help to ease my mind. I would recommend him to anyone who is having difficulty in math.

We came to Tutor A team when our 16 year old son was failing math analysis. Jim was so helpful! He came to our home and met with us and our son. He spoke with our son to get a feel for which if his tutors would work well with him. He hit the nail on the head! Jacob was a perfect fit! Our main goal was to have our son pass his class for the year, which he did. Our only regret was we should have started earlier!

I had the pleasure of working with Bruce as he helped me improve my college algebra grade from a D to a B. Bruce was always on time and frequently stayed extra, always making sure that I understood whatever principle I needed to complete my assignment(s). He was able to explain concepts in a way that I could understand. Bottom line Bruce is an awesome tutor and I would not hesitate to work with him in the future

      I have a passion for children and I believe that education is very important. I have been in the business for 12 years and wouldn't trade it for the world.


      I'm a college graduate who specialize in various tutoring services such as math, reading, spelling, computer skills, video editing and basketball/track training. The kids are our future, so why not instill knowledge into them and show them that learning can be fun! Miss Jasmine's Wiz Kidz are the best and children can make the big bucks as adults.


      I became a personal tutor to help people improve on their learning skills. It is difficult to find the time to motivate without a tutor.


      I am a college student studying mechanical engineering technology. I can teach up to Calculus 1. I just need to know what material is needed to be taught.


      I provide one-on-one tutoring in math and computer science. I am willing to travel to you, or you can come to me.


      I provide one-on-one in-depth assistance with homework, test preparation, and reading comprehension. I am well versed in anatomy and ethics as well.


      We provide educational technology consultant and online tutoring services. We provide K-12 and higher education services for the improvement of teaching and learning.


      Math sucks. You either get it, or you don't. When people don't get it, they come to me, and step by step, I use their learning styles to help them understand the material.


      I work to make sure everyone I am helping succeeds. Whether I am instructing a child, organizing and cleaning a home, or executing a week of meals for a family--I want to make people happy and successful.


      I am a teacher, and I have taught for 15 years in both middle and high school and can teach both economics and mathematics very well. I can make students who hate math to like it since I always start from the known to the unknown concepts. I also enjoy teaching kids that is why I take my time in doing that.


      I tutor students from ages pre-K through college level courses in various subjects: - English: up to 400 levels of college courses - Math: up to pre-algebra - Social studies: all areas - Science: includes chemistry and biology (no physics) - Test-taking strategies, including elimination, critical thinking, study skills, note taking, etc.

      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.
