Johanna C. says, "My grandson has been working with Marie for over six months. During that time, we have noticed a marked improvement in his reading skills and comprehension. This is a kid who used to “hate” reading but has recently begun picking up books on his own and reading “for fun". This would have never happened prior to her tutelage. My grandson can get overwhelmed by new concepts and ideas. But, with Marie’s patience and lesson plans based on his interests, he is not only learning to read better, but gaining an appreciation for it. I highly recommend her." Read more

I offer great tutoring at a reasonable price. I have experience with the SAT, SSAT, ISEE, LSAT, and other tests, and not only understand how to take the tests, but how to teach the material to students in a way they can understand. I can answer questions that relate to test prep and academic subjects that only a person with "real world" experience can give - such as "Why do I need to know this stuff, anyway?" Finally, I have a sense of humor, and can engage and entertain while teaching, without being a complete goofball or pushover who doesn't get the job done. This may sound clichéd and cheesy, but it's true. I enjoy reaching young minds an...

Shila A. says, "Rayva is very thorough, professional & enthusiastic. She arrived on time and motivated my daughter for an extended class from 1hr to 1.5hr. My daughter really enjoyed her class, since Rayva fully covered her questions and her class was super productive by teaching her fun and simple ways of approaching math problems. I highly recommend Rayva, since she is not only very knowledgeable, but also is able to motivate teen students to stay focus and improve their skills!" Read more

I am an energetic, passionate recent college graduate with four years of teaching and tutoring experience with elementary through college aged students, including in AP Chemistry, AP US History, organic chemistry, writing, reading, college admissions, essay writing, research, and more. I love to teach and learn! Witnessing the academic progress of my students is truly a privilege - and opening their eyes to new worlds of possibility is even more meaningful.

Your English Tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

English tutors charge $25 to $80 per hour on average, depending on their experience, education level, location, and availability. Expect to pay $15 to $40 per hour when hiring a high school aged English tutor and $30 to $100 per hour for a certified English teacher with a degree.

English tutors help students with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, phonics, and speaking skills. English tutors assist students by reviewing and critiquing essays, increasing their reading comprehension, or improving their writing skills. English tutors also work with students in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.

ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors help students who speak different primary languages learn formal English speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. ESL teachers overcome language barriers to help students communicate clearly in English.

Start by searching our list of private ESL, reading, and writing tutors. Then follow these tips:

  • Contact and consult with at least three tutors before hiring.
  • Read their reviews, ask for references, and verify their education.
  • Discuss where the lessons will take place, the cost, and cancellation policies.
  • Ask what payment methods are accepted and when payment is due.
  • Ask about discounts for booking a package of lessons.
  • Hire the tutor on a trail basis to make sure they are a good fit.

I like Ryan because he is relatable. He is a good teacher but switches things up because he is still a young adult. I think hes able to teach me because hes still in touch with modern games and music. I find it fun even to learn from because its nice to be able to relate to a teaching figure. --- Kieran

Michaela was supportive, kind, and helpful during my college application process. She worked with me to develop my own ideas, providing specific guidance with editing my writing, and more broad assistance with structuring and developing my thoughts. She helped me strengthen my own writing while ensuring that my voice remained at the forefront. She cares deeply about her students and is incredibly knowledgeable about the college application and essay writing process. I would definitely recommend her and her services!
