Hello! I am excited to get to know your student and help them reach their full potential. My experience includes working as an 8th grade math teacher, teaching Math 101 at the University of Kansas, and managing a math learning center. I am skilled at working with students of all ages and ability levels. As a tutor, I will start by quickly assessing your student's fundamental skills so that we can address the root of the problem while supporting homework and test preparation at the same time. I understand that all students learn differently and to meet your student's unique needs, I must first get to know them and find their learning sty...

I love to tutor math. I love to see the student get beyond "I hate math" or "I'm not any good in math" or "I'm scared to death of math" and so on. You know the story. I take pride in the fact that I have a gift or talent or the ability, whatever you want to call it, of being able to break the material down to the level of the student. I have taught junior high and high school for many years as well as junior college. So I know the hard spots that a student encounters and what they need as background to insure success. I love it. It is not a job. Currently I still do some subbing at JCCC and private tutoring. I also do the web site and...

While my knowledge and education focus on high school and undergraduate science and math topics, my greatest assets come from my history of tutoring professionally at my local community college, giving me a broad range of experience working with students from a variety of backgrounds and needs. This has taught me that the first thing I need is buy-in, so I focus first on relationship, which builds motivation and helps me to identify each student’s strengths and challenges, and from there develop their skills and confidence. What I enjoy most is seeing a student grow in confidence over time! Helping a student to restore their own sense of comp...

I have over 15 years of experience teaching 5th, 2nd and 3rd grades. I have a Master’s in English as a Second Language. I enjoy the relationships that are built with students. People don’t learn from those they don’t like. I also enjoy developing number sense in children that struggle with math, much like I did. This was because I didn’t understand how numbers worked. I have developed a system over the years to teach students how to become a fluent mathematician and confident when it comes to math. I also enjoy teaching students how to read for meaning which in turns develops a love of reading for those who may struggle. The key is to focus ...

I am currently a student at the University of Missouri Kansas City studying Mathematics. I have a passion for math. I have loved it since I was small. I understand not everyone has my passion and liking of math. I understand that it is not something that everyone likes to do. My job is not to make you enjoy math, although I hope I do. My job is to help you understand it and be more confident in yourself. I am currently able to tutor up to Algebra 2 but I have taken classes up through Calculus 1 and am reteaching myself Calculus so I can soon help with that as well. I tutored all of my friends in high school and was the teacher's assistant my ...

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?
