My daughter, a high school senior, has been working with her outstanding LOM Tutor weekly since October when she started feeling overwhelmed by the higher-level concepts in her challenging Precalculus course. Several months later, she has earned an "A" for 1st semester! Last year, she struggled to make a "B-" in Algebra II, so her rising grade is quite an improvement. More importantly, her confidence and understanding of complex higher-level math concepts have also vastly improved. Although she has an excellent math teacher at the alternative high school program she attends, meeting with her weekly tutor has been invaluable because her tutor explains difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand manner in a nonthreatening environment of digital learning where my math-anxious perfectionist daughter does not feel intimidated. She has told me many times that having a private tutor has been the single most helpful thing she has ever experienced in her entire academic math career! I am very thankful for LOM for making exceptionally high-quality private tutoring affordable. As a parent with over 10 years of homeschooling experience, I am very satisfied with LOM products and programs, and I am looking forward to continuing to use LOM services and products with my son, who is now an 8th-grader. I discovered LOM tutoring because my son is using a LOM Pre-Algebra video course. I was going to sign up my daughter with a local private math tutor, but the cost was prohibitive; also, we live in a rural area, and we would have had to drive 45 minutes to find a tutor who was qualified to teach Precalculus. Digital learning is within our budget and much more convenient, since the tutor literally comes to my daughter for live interactive sessions via our computer. Although the tutoring sessions are not recorded for future review, this has not been a problem since my daughter takes notes and the tutor sends a written summary of each session to us immediately after each session. I researched extensively before choosing LOM tutoring services, and I do not believe there is a better option in this price range. Many of the other online tutoring services were impersonal, used a different tutor each week, and/or used international tutors (who are speaking English as a second-language and may not be familiar with math as it is taught in the United States, which I think should be avoided below the college level). Signing up for tutoring services was fast and very easy. I emailed LOM and the owner of the company (!) responded within a few minutes and offered my daughter a free sample tutoring session immediately; this was such a relief for my daughter, who had literally been crying in her room for an hour for fear that she was going to get a bad grade in math and, "...ruin my chances for getting into my favorite colleges." She loved the trial session, so we then set up regular weekly sessions with her own private tutor. Although they usually meet at the same day and time each week, the tutor has been flexible and encouraged my daughter to change the weekly session so it coordinates with her in-class tests. We cannot say enough about her phenomenal tutor! Oh, and by the way, my daughter was accepted at her first choice college, Willamette University, and at all the other private liberal arts colleges to which she applied early decision (Lewis and Clark, Linfield, and Pacific Lutheran University--she is waiting to hear from Whitman and University of Puget Sound). I could not more highly recommend the LOM tutoring service.

      Our Granddaughter has been working with Jo for about three years now. She had difficulty staying up with her classmates and Jo has made an indrecible difference in helping our Granddaughter understand her school work. She creates a positive learning environent that keeps our Granddaughter focused and engaged. Her grades have improved and she now enjoys reading just for fun. We originally tried a national chain of "learning centers." Save your money and call Jo. We could not be happier with our results, and I think you will too.

      I retired in 2012 after 32 years in public education as a special education teacher working with students with deafness/hearing impairments, learning disabilities, cognitive delays and multiple disabilities. I also spent several years tutoring at-home students due to medical conditions or high risk for failure. In addition, I have taught general education English to high school students which included mechanics, grammar, spelling, creative writing and literature. I am now looking for a part-time work because I miss working with kids and their minds; assisting them through their challenges and helping them realize their potential.

      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 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.

      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.
