I've had a passion for math since third grade, some of my favorite sub-fields being calculus and real analysis. This early passion led me to tutor for Mathnasium for a year and a half as well as majoring in mathematics at Tufts University. I gain great satisfaction from reaching that "ah-ha" moment when learning a new concept, especially when I can help someone else achieve that moment. Not only am I driven to help students understand material, but overall I'm driven by the goal of making students excited about what their learning. My top goal in any tutroing session is to build a student's confidence in their knowledge, abilities, and themse...

As a young engineer, scientist and entrepreneur, I see the world in a way many people take decades to arrive at. I value education and relationships more than anything else and have a vast set of experiences and accomplishments across humanitarian and educational avenues. I'm kind and respectful and have patience and determination in loads. I enjoy teaching others because it's something I've learned I'm quite good at. I'm patient, I invest my time in energy to understand the individual I'm teaching, and there's nothing more fulfilling than seeing the joy someone feels when they finally learn or understand something. I feel energized by the th...

Hi! I'm a researcher at IST Austria and Harvard grad with a degree in Math and a minor in Computer Science. I've tutored during high school (writing) and college (math), and really enjoy learning how students think and finding explanations that make sense to them. I'm open to tutoring students in college level mathematics (linear algebra, calculus 1-3, topology) computer science (basic programming, algorithms and data structures) and basic statistics/probability (including random algorithms). At a high school level, I'm open to tutoring physics, math, and writing (I tutored writing in highschool, and took english courses at Harvard too!).

I have significant experience in tutoring high school and undergraduate students of the top tier schools in the United States and in India. I have received recognition from my students and from my tutoring administrators (i.e., one who assigns students for tutoring in college/university) for my teaching capabilities in Math and Science. I have been told that I am able to clearly explain the concepts in layman terms with proper examples and real world references which makes it super easy to relate to and feel the topic. I am also able to teach my students how to double check their answer to the questions in their assignments, classes, and exam...

On this platform and on wyzant.com I am on of the top rated tutors in Boston, and it’s not an accident - I love what I do, and I get results The following story tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she got an 'A'. Another student recently texted me "that was the most productive hour of math in my life" This is my goal for all my students - to enjoy thems...

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?
