Tom Helinski is actually very easy to communicate with: returning emails very quickly. He was able to answer and explain my son's calculus questions easily, and his price per hour is manageable. My only complaint is that PSU is a pain to get to and from during rush hour traffic and the hall that they conduct the tutoring in is very noisy.

We have been so pleased with our tutoring. My daughter has become more confident. I like how the tutoring can be changed to a different way of explaining so my daughter can understand a difficult concept.

Akissi is extremely professional and experienced. She quickly identified patterns in my speaking (French) which helped me correct myself when she wasn't there. She is focused, intelligent, detailed and knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. Her non-judgmental approach helped me feel comfortable so I could concentrate on learning. She likes to cater her classes to her students' interests, so it's helpful to have specific goals. Do not hesitate to contact Akissi when looking for a French teacher or consultant!

Elissa is excellent with my 14-year-old granddaughter who had become discouraged with her online high school French class. Elissa is encouraging, tells interesting stories, is very attentive, is firm and helps move along with the lessons. I see the excitement in my granddaughter, she looks forward to going to the tutoring sessions.

I reached out to Student Circle to get help on my statement of purpose. Student circle was able to help me beyond just correcting grammatical errors; they helped me improve the substance and style of the essay. Despite working under the deadline, they were able to contribute a lot to refining and finalizing my statement of purpose. I'd highly recommend Student Circle to anyone seeking academic help.

    My 9 year old looks forward to his tutoring sessions with Tyler. He has been helping him with his math and is more than willing to work with my son’s teacher to ensure that my son is getting the support he needs for his school work. Not only has my son been improving on his skills, but Tyler has also helped him become more confident in his abilities.

      I am a consistent "A" student and I can help you or your child with a plethora of subjects. I have a lot of experience tutoring and mentoring kids and youth and I've also taught English, Math, and Biology to adults. I have an associate's degree and I am working towards my bachelor's degree, with medical school as the eventual goal. I have a spirit of helping inside me and nothing makes me happier than when someone struggling gains the confidence to succeed.

      About

      I’m a certified secondary math teacher and K-12 district math coach. I’m also a former varsity basketball coach. I love working with students of all ages, and I can bring innovative, hands-on or technology-focused math instruction and 1-on-1 or small group tutoring sessions. Every student can learn math, but not every student can learn in the same way. It is my belief that it is the tutor's job to find that way.

      About

      Most tutoring companies look at a student's grade level, and tutor according to where they should be in that grade. We look at students on an individual basis, seeing what areas they have already mastered, and what basic, foundational skills in which they may have gaps. This allows us to create a plan of progress that is specifically designed for your child-- not just for any kid who happens to be the same age. The creativity and engagement that is in every lesson is the best part of working with Mobile Minds Tutoring! Most of us have seen our curiosity lessen or die within a traditional classroom, and students who struggle in certain subjects disengage from them so that they are further unmotivated to gain success in areas of concern. Our tutors create engaging lessons for each student so that there is interaction, play, and logic towards reaching every new mastery in each concept.

      About

      I strongly believe that every individual, when given the right tools, can be victorious. I am a creative teacher and work hard to find the methods. I enjoy hearing about my students success and their excitement about learning.

      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.
