With me, you actually get it. That's because I make each step super simple. And that's because I've tutored more than 10,000 hours helping 300 students over 16 years. I've helped students raise their GMAT quantitative scores by 8-12 points, GRE quant scores by 13-16 points, SAT scores by 300-400 points, ACT scores by 4-7 points, and get admitted to their top choices including the Yale School of Management, Columbia, NYU and Vanderbilt. I take pics of each problem we do and email them at the end of each session. I have extensive experience working with students with varying levels of ADD or dyslexia and students attending rigorous private scho...

I have a Ph. D. in Physics from M.I.T. and do theoretical physics research at Stanford. I have been tutoring high school and college students for about 15 years in all Math (geometry, algebra, precalculus, trigonometry, statistics etc.) and Physics (mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, heat and thermodynamics, modern physics etc.) subjects. I always follow the student's textbook. Usually, I teach the material in many different ways and do examples until I am sure the student understands the subject. Due my years of experience this is always successful. Over the years I had more than 200 students who have been very satisfied with my t...

Hello, My name is Dr Yves Boiteux. I teach/ tutor Math and Physics (and French) at all levels from Elementary School to College. I explain what is important in the School curriculum, and where the material will be applied in Real life, since I am, by trade, an Engineer, then a Scientist, then a Business man, and finally a born teacher. I help students with homework and all Test preparations. I hold a PhD from UC Berkeley in Engineering with minors in Math and Physics, but I keep the theory to a minimum. I teach with a good sense of humor, and I am patient with all my students, flexible on rescheduling when needed, and can even give full...

Also I have had experience with different people and different ages so I really know how to adapt to pretty much any type of person daddy is having the lessons What I enjoy the most while teaching is how interesting is the way people learn, because every different person has their own way o...

Work online via Zoom with an outstanding and funny explainer. When the session is done, you'll get a PDF of all the notes we took and a link to a free recording of the session that you can download and keep. I've been helping students understand math and science for nineteen years now. So many students don't know that the math they're learning is useful and is supposed to make sense. If they ask "Why are we learning this stuff?" the answer is always something like, "You'll need it next year when you study the next level (Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, etc.)" Math seems to them like a bunch of arbitrary nonsense put together by ...

Your math tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.
A math tutor costs $25 to $80 per hour when teaching privately and $25 to $50 per hour when tutoring online. SAT math tutoring costs $45 to $100 per hour on average. Math tutoring centers charge $100 to $200 per month for weekly tutoring sessions.

Your child may need a math tutor if:

  • Their grades or test scores are declining
  • They get confused or frustrated with homework
  • They are having difficulty or lacking confidence with numbers
  • They are excelling in school and need more challenging tasks
  • You are no longer able to provide help with homework or learning
  • They have a learning disability
Tutors suggest a minimum of one tutoring session per week until students build confidence, understand the subject, and improve grades. Sometimes, a few tutoring sessions can help students get back on track and regain confidence. If the student struggles in two or more classes, more sessions are recommended.
Math tutors are responsible for helping students with homework, teaching various mathematical concepts, motivating and boosting confidence, and teaching skills like note-taking, studying, and test-taking. Math tutors also show how to perform calculations, processes, and computations to complete their assignments.

Look for the following qualities in a math tutor:

  • Expertise and knowledge on the subject
  • A good communicator and motivator
  • A passionate and enthusiastic teacher
  • Ability to quickly identify the student's needs
  • Teaches to the student's strengths and minimizes their weaknesses
  • Personalizes each session and incorporates connections to the student's interests
  • Listens and communicates often with parents and teachers
  • Is inquisitive and asks the student good, open-ended questions
  • Is persistent but always demonstrates patience and empathy
  • Adaptable and able to explain material in multiple ways
  • Shows positivity and encouragement
  • Has a reputation of professionalism and reliability
  • Has resourcefulness and is tech-savvy
Hiring a math tutor helps struggling children keep up and advances those students who aren't challenged enough. A tutor helps improve any student's knowledge, learning skills, and confidence.

Tutoring is worth the money because:

  • Tutoring strengthens subject comprehension, boosts confidence, and builds important learning skills that a crowded classroom can't offer.
  • Tutoring improves grades and tutored students outperform their peers on examinations.
  • Students develop positive attitudes toward the subject after tutoring.

Home math tutors are available for children in elementary school all the way to students in high school and college. Start by searching our list of private math tutors near you. Then:

  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Interview and compare at least three tutors.
  • Check their references and verify their credentials.
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on Tutors.com and Google.
  • Discuss fees, locations, scheduling, and cancellation policies.
  • Ask what payment methods are accepted and if payment is expected after each session.
  • Consider hiring the tutor on a trial basis to see if they are a good fit.

When looking to hire a good math tutor, ask the following questions:

  • What's your level of education or academic training in math?
  • What are your qualifications, certifications, or credentials?
  • How long have you been tutoring, and how many students have you tutored?
  • What ages and learning styles do you tutor?
  • How will you evaluate my child's needs?
  • What is your tutoring process, methodology, and teaching philosophy?
  • Do you have a curriculum, or do you create personalized content for my child?
  • How do you measure and track progress?
  • What results should I expect to see, and what happens if my child doesn't make any progress?
  • How often will you communicate with me and my child's teachers?
  • Will the tutoring sessions take place in-home, at a public location, or online?
  • How many students will be tutored at a time?
  • How much do you charge, and how long is each session?
  • How long and when are you available to tutor?
  • What's your policy for cancellations and make-up sessions?
  • Can you provide me with a list of references?
  • Are you willing to undergo a background check?
  • What makes you an outstanding math tutor?
