## Math tutor cost

Math tutoring is accessible for all ages and all levels of math study—elementary, high school, and college students. From learning the foundational principles of multiplication to understanding calculus, gaining an understanding of the reasoning behind math can turn a student’s math grades from F’s to A’s. Math spans many different levels and pricing models, so tutoring is priced as follows:

## Private math tutoring

High school and college math teachers tend to charge more per hour than math students or college graduates. They also base their prices on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons usually last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.

## Package discounts

Many tutors or learning centers will give a discount if a group of five to ten lessons is booked and paid for up front. Some will offer a complimentary consultation before signing up for lessons. Others offer a monthly price, and some offer after school group skill practice programs or homework help at a group price.

## Standalone specialties

Some tutors prefer to teach only one category of math, despite having the qualifications to teach many categories, because they feel they can give students a greater understanding of that particular math skill than others. For example, the tutor below, Sarah K., mostly teaches hearing impaired students, while the second tutor, Myles, enjoys helping students do well in the SAT or ACT exams.

• Sarah K. Math, Miami, FL | Specialty is Algebra 1

• SAT/ACT Math Tutor, Fort Lauderdale, FL | Specialty is SAT and ACT prep

## Reputation

Math scores and degrees are a good indicator of how well a tutor knows the subject matter, and some teachers have helped entire classes pass their grade-level math. Some teachers are a better fit for a certain personality than others.

## Locations

Tutors are often willing to come to the home or meet at a local library or coffee shop. The price of travel will either be additional or included in the cost of the hourly rate. Most tutors are flexible on your choice of hours and preferred days of the week for sessions.
