My tutoring helps students by encouraging & empowering them. I correct students when they make mistakes and explain to them fully why the answer they chose wrong answer and why it was not the best choice. I try to teach all of my students to fully evaluate all answer choices before selecting one. I enjoy working with my students, and I enjoy when you can see that they are gaining confidence in what they do. I enjoy when my students work hard and bring up their grades. I may have helped some, but whatever they accomplished is 100% their own....

I have been tutoring professionally since 2010, when I started both tutoring and preemptively teaching mathematics to students ages 8-20, as well as chemistry, biology, English, and SAT/ACT/AP Exam prep. I graduated from Washington University in St Louis. Teaching is one of the most important things a person can do. We all remember the teachers who formed us, made us the people we are today. They inspire, they inform, and they incite us to learn. The curiosity we all have is stoked by teachers, who keep us thinking and keep our brains fit and full. I have worked for several professional groups, and my track record speaks for itself - in the ...

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?
