Samantha H. says, "Math has always been a huge struggle for me. I was plagued by a college algebra class that left me feeling worried I would fail. Making the decision to work with Mahmut every week for the semester made passing the class with a B so much easier! He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and is able to help simplify the information that seems so confusing and he teaches helpful tricks along the way. It became obvious that Mahmut knows the ins and outs of the material he teaches which makes him a great fit for anyone. I can’t thank him enough for all of his help. Highly recommend him. " Read more

Hi everyone! My name is Ashlyn, and I am here because I have a strong passion for math. I am currently a Junior in college, and still withhold the same love for math that I have had since the 2nd grade. I graduated 3rd in my class in High School, and I tested so high on my math entrance exam for college that I was only required to take one math course to get a Bachelor's degree. I am willing to tutor online, over the phone or in person. I will be flexible with how your student learns best....

I am a Hajim School of Engineering student at the University of Rochester. I achieved a 29 on my ACT for both Math and Science. I taught myself Calculus because my school didn't offer it. I specialize in learning how to think, starting at "Square One". I spend time with students one-on-one, approaching problems from several angles until something sticks. Once the student understands the concept, we switch roles and solidify the understanding by having them explain what they have learned to me. I think that teaching is the best way to learn. My greatest reward is seeing that my student truly understands what we are doing and why....

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. 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
  • 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.
