We used her for the final two weeks before taking the SATs (mainly math) and wished we had hired her from the start instead of the Princeton Review. Live and learn :)" Read more

I have the ability to communicate well with people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of education. I have a Master's degree in Social Work, a profession in which communication is essential.
Helping others to learn new things, when a student has the "aha" moment and suddenly all the pieces seem to fit and the subject suddenly makes sense to the learner - a very satisfying feeling.

As the name suggests every child is unique and there are different methods of teaching a child. UnicornTutor knows this and is willing to teach your child at an affordable cost.

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

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 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.
