I have lots of experience in these topics of English. I am a freshman in college and have been taking advanced writing and English courses, so it's all fresh. I got As in all of my classes and spent lots of time and put effort into those subjects. English and Writing is definitely a strength I have, and I'd love to help others as best as I can! I enjoy seeing the outcome of my help! I feel that the students gain so many skills when they feel they know enough to continue on their own....

Chris L. says, "I studied SAT with David for summer and winter break when I was a junior in HS. I was sick of the other schools and tutors who would just make me do practice questions and go over it, because not only that it was repetitive but also I saw no improvement. David was different, because he actually made me realize that I learnt my english totally wrong even though I went through the whole K-12 in the US, because I didn't know that there were so many structures to grammar and easy tricks to solving SAT questions. He really is a great teacher. I was able to make it to UCLA thanks to him. Really highly recommend, my best teacher for life." Read more

Jennifer D. says, "I purchased a learning kit from Born To Lead (Vannetta Thompson) for my grandson, at the time that I purchased the learning kit for him, he was in the first grade but on a second-grade reading and math level, so I purchased a third-grade kit for him, my grandson is now in the second grade and is reading and doing math at a third-grade level. I also want to mention the fact that he loved working in his workbooks, he was overly excited every time he got his hands on one, especially when he would finish one and start on a new one. These learning kits are really amazing for every child on any reading and math level to have, it also makes learning fun and easy. I advise all parents/grandparents to purchase one of these learning kits, I can promise you that won't regret it, buying this kit was one of the best decisions I ever made... " Read more

Fun fact: I can recite every line of the movie The Princess Bride. Hi, my name is Sylvia. I find that tutoring is most rewarding 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 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.

Kangsoo Y. says, "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" Read more

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. 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.

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?What questions should I ask a math tutor before hiring?

We’ve known Ms Reid for a year now, we started when our daughter struggled as a freshman in high school, after a confusing period with hybrid classes during Covid. She started with a positive attitude, a calm demeanor and strong skills, assessed the situation and built the best strategy to work with my daughter . I’ve noticed that my kid’s confidence was boosted right away and her grades started going up steadily . We are very grateful to Mrs Peg for her dedication, talent, patience and knowledge. She’s the best teacher and we highly recommend her !

If your child needs help learning I highly recommend BornToLead. I’m So happy I met Vannetta. My niece's Custom learning kit is so helpful. Vannetta is so patient and professional. I have never seen my niece so excited about education. Presentation is everything and I was highly satisfied with what we received. Extremely organized. Plus she explained to me some of the best ways to utilize the kit. Vannetta reached out to see if she can better assist days later too for an update which was amazing. When you love what you do it shows. If you’re looking for a tutor or just looking for guidance you’re in the right spot. she went above and beyond to make sure my niece's learning kit had everything she need. I will definitely be back for another customized kit.

My daughter had to write a pre-algebra test in a few days and I was concerned she was struggling. I contacted SoFlo online, expressed my concern and in spite of the tight schedule they moved things around to accommodate my daughter. I witnessed the session and it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I love the teaching method, and that my daughter was offered multiple methods to solve the same problem. I recommend SoFlo highly!
