Kangsoo Y. says, "We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them" Read more

Sam E. says, "I procrastinated too long to study for my math ged test, I had about 10 days till test day. Charles took me on board and made himself as available as possible. I had no prior algebra knowledge and even most fraction or decimal multiplication had long left my brain. I have adhd and staying focused is hard, which is also a reason why I procrastinated. Charles had his eye on the price and wouldn’t let me chit chat too much. Which was insanely helpful. I can’t recommend Charles enough, without him I wouldn’t have been able to pass the math ged, let alone feel comfortable to take it in the first place. Worth his weight in gold, this tutor is."

Serves Iselin, NJ
Barbara H. says, "After failing two math classes he needed to graduate from college, I decided to get my son a tutor. Obviously, the two paid online math help sites did not assist him to the point of his mastering the courses. After scouring three sites, I settled on and was fortunate to select Cynthia Smarook based on her proximity to where I lived. She was a wonderful fit for my son, who had been diagnosed with a developmental delay which resulted in him having an Individualized Education Plan. I was impressed that she not only recognized this but asked to peruse his IEPs. This, I am sure, helped her tailor how to work with my son to ensure he understood the mathematical concepts of which he had previously struggled. Throughout the semester, I began to notice my son’s approach to math was not as foreboding and apprehensive, and he seemed more relaxed. Needless to say, he got an “A” in the course which fulfilled his last prerequisite for graduation. I wholeheartedly recommend Cynthia Smarook as a tutor. Her love of math and enthusiasm for the subject is certainly evident. Cynthia is not just a tutor, she is “The” tutor. " Read more

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

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.

Steven H is a highly qualified Mathematics teacher with years of experience teaching High school/undergraduate students. Because of this experience, Steven can tailor his teaching methods to suit the personality and the inclination of individual students. My daughter started Math lessons with him from her sophomore year and within a few sessions developed a much better handle of the course. Her confidence increased and his pragmatic approach helped her overcome her anxiety to deal with difficult problems. I would strongly recommend him as a Math teacher for any high school student.
