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

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 improves grades and tutored students outperform their peers on examinations.
- Students develop positive attitudes toward the subject after tutoring.
