David H. says, "I recently worked with Alex and had a fantastic experience. The tutor was incredibly knowledgeable and patient, and was able to explain complex math concepts in a way that was easy for me to understand. They provided lots of practice problems and constructive feedback, which helped me to improve my skills and gain more confidence in my abilities. Overall, I highly recommend this math tutor to anyone looking to improve their math skills!
However, one minor negative point I noticed was that the tutor was occasionally difficult to schedule with. They had a busy schedule and it could be a bit challenging to find a time that worked for both of us." Read more

I am a senior at SJSU, 1 year away from graduating with my teaching credential. I have 1 year experience co-teaching in a 2nd grade classroom. My primary job was to work one on one with students struggling with reading, writing, and math. I love working with kids, no child is too difficult.

Hi, my name is Sylvia. I love working with students! Fun fact: I can recite every line of the movie The Princess Bride. For me, the most rewarding part of tutoring is when a new concept “clicks” with a student - their excitement is contagious, and it’s a privilege to be able to help them reach that point! On a more personal level, I am a friendly, outdoorsy, athletic, and talkative type of person!
I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency. I studied Economics at the University of St. Andrews and have been tutoring for 2 years. At SoFlo, we raise grades, strengthen understanding,

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...

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.

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. On average, students take **9 to 50 sessions**.

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.

- Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
- Interview and compare at least three tutors.
- Check their references and verify their credentials.

- Discuss fees, locations, scheduling, and cancellation policies.
- Ask what payment methods are accepted and if payment is expected after each session.

As a struggling Calculus BC student, Yves broke down seemingly difficult concepts in a way that was extremely easy to understand. His positive and determined attitude was very engaging, and I found myself learning and retaining much more information than before. Greatly in part to his tutoring, I was able to raise my grade to a solid A, and I got a 5 on the AP Test!

We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them
