Hi there! My name is Sophie and I am currently on a gap year from college and working at Athleta in Natick. I have 4 years of experience as an environmental science camp counselor with children 11-15 years old. I love working with kids and and making lessons a fun experience rather than a boring lecture. I enjoy making the lessons a bit more interactive since it keeps the students more engaged and focused. As a student from 5th grade up until 8th grade, I struggled with understanding certain ideas and concepts so I understand how frustrating it can be. I never wanted a tutor due to the fact that many of them were older and would tend to teach

Hey I’m Mishmath. A Math focused tutoring company. I’m been in the tutoring biz for 5+ years. Test prep is my bread and butter. The SAT, the ACT and the GRE (Standardized Tests) are my favorite things to teach. I have a Bachelors Degree and a Masters degree in Computer Science. I gave up a 6 figure paycheck and a comfortable 9-5 software engineer job to be a tutor full time. That’s how much I love it! Tutoring for me is not just about memorizing the material. It’s about actually learning it and having fun with it.

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.
