I am a recent graduate from Duke University with a double major in Statistics and Computer Science. I was a Teaching Assistant for an introductory statistics course for 2 years, and have served as a mentor to peers since high school. I am comfortable tutoring students in high school or college and for any level. I am nice, but will not coddle my students. I am patient, yet firm. I strongly believe that everyone has the ability to master any topic through sufficient time, effort, and attention from both the student and the teacher, and my tutoring style is reflective of that.

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 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?

  • 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?
