I start with a free session with students or parents to assess their needs. I work with students to find the best way they learn. I have 20+ years of teaching in college. I started by teaching my daughter who ended up with a Master's degree in pure math. I love teaching and enjoy working with students. I enjoy seeing the results of my work in my customers' satisfaction as students well as in their grade improvement. I'm never satisfied until my students are. I'm against memorization and make sure that my students fully understand each topic....

InfinityEd caters to the client's individual needs. We offer standardized test prep, individual tutoring, workshops, courses, camps, after school programs, etc. ... This company was founded over a 10 year period of tutoring mathematics across NJ, NY, CT, and MA. It was as a result of seeing how much the individual student needed convenient and consistent academic support. Some districts couldn't offer specialized services and that's where we come in. After traveling wide and far, I decided to hone in on just one region (Western Mass) to maximize visibility and to work with school districts and parents closely. My team and I are hoping to hel...

I am a math professor at SUNY Albany. I have a Ph.D. in math and an M.S. in statistics from the University of California, Berkeley, I graduated from a math high school in Bulgaria, where I also participated in and won a number of math competitions and olympiads. I have been taching and tutoring math ever since finishing high school and have worked with high school students through numerous other math venues. As a university professor I feel frustrated with the disservice the high school math education here does to the students. I am often invited to give talks to high school math teachers in this country on how they should be teaching mat...

I run summer math programs for high school students in the Eastern European tradition of problem solving. I would also happily run such programs during the school year if there is interest. After years of teaching at the uniersity level here I have seen how much more poorly prepared the students who have gone to high school in this country are than their peers from other countries. I have realized that thi is due to the fact that certain math topics and skills which are standard to the curricula in other countries are simply never taught here and these are the topics and the skills that I teach in my programs, so that the students educated...

I believe that inspiration is the most important ingredient to active learning. My first priority is to find real-world examples that students feel inspired by, then I enable them to follow that inspiration, building curiosity and enabling my students to direct their own learning. My favorite feeling is when a student really "gets" a concept. After working on a challenging topic for a while, there's usually a "lightbulb" moment when the students eyes light up and you can see a mixture of surprise, pride, and joy wash over them as they finally understand what we are working on. That is what motivates me as a tutor: the pride and joy I get in ...

I teach my students using a lot interaction and asking them small questions along the way, which keeps them engaged about the material. However, I still create an environment where they are comfortable interrumping to ask anything that they didn't understand along the way, because asking questions is okay! I enjoy watching my students understand more and more concepts throughout time, as well as watching their smiley and happy face when they finally understand something....

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?
