With over 20 years of instructional experience, both in the classroom and over the internet, Rebekah Andrews knows how to help unlock the potential every student has. Rebekah has experience working with neurodivergent students as well. I really struggled with math in school but had a teacher who just changed my entire perspective in the subject. I want to share that experience with other kids who are struggling. Math makes sense, we just need to know how to present it....

I taught 3rd grade and more recently 4th grade for 11 years in a Dual Immersion Public School, so I have experience working with students who are not native English speakers. I have also worked at the Middle School level and feel comfortable working with students through 8th grade. My specialties are Language Arts: History, Literature, Reading and Writing. My background is in Fine Arts, so I bring a fresh, creative approach to learning with a focus on visual aids. I have enjoyed a lifetime love of learning, and utilize these traits and skills on a daily basis: curiosity, inquiry, collaboration, expression, notation, organization, fruition. I...

I've been passionate about teaching for as long as I can remember, leading a lesson for the first time to my 5th grade classroom. Since then, I've had the opportunity to engage in meaningful work in German and English and have taught in a variety of settings. My extensive experience in German and English tutoring allows me to work with students from all backgrounds and at varying levels. Cumulatively, I've acted as a tutor for 2+ years, but as an educator for the entirety of my time in college, helping teach classes to young children and college students. This dynamic range is what makes my tutoring fun and successful from day one! Experience...

We are privately owned and we hire disabled tutors who need work and wouldn’t otherwise be able to work due to bias in the Tutor world. Our staff are intelligent people ready to help you learn whatever you need help with. I love teaching kids but what I love more is when you look at their face and you see that they finally got it. It’s rewarding in itself.

My background: My wife and I have a combined 40+ years experience teaching EFL, specifically catering to Korean elementary and middle school students. Until very recently my wife and I lived in Ilsan where, as a team, we ran a popular private tutoring business out of our home (a.k.a. gongbubang in the Korean language) in Ilsan. Over the 16 years we spent working from that home, we built a reputation as teachers who focused on communication rather than the typical rote memorization of vocab and grammar rules. That said, in Korea, we had to cater to those needs as well, and having an excellent knowldge of English grammar (far better than most...

Your english tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.
English tutors charge $25 to $80 per hour on average, depending on their experience, education level, location, and availability. Expect to pay $15 to $40 per hour when hiring a high school aged English tutor and $30 to $100 per hour for a certified English teacher with a degree.
English tutors help students with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, phonics, and speaking skills. English tutors assist students by reviewing and critiquing essays, increasing their reading comprehension, or improving their writing skills. English tutors also work with students in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.
ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors help students who speak different primary languages learn formal English speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. ESL teachers overcome language barriers to help students communicate clearly in English.

Start by searching our list of private ESL, reading, and writing tutors. Then follow these tips:

  • Contact and consult with at least three tutors before hiring.
  • Read their reviews, ask for references, and verify their education.
  • Discuss where the lessons will take place, the cost, and cancellation policies.
  • Ask what payment methods are accepted and when payment is due.
  • Ask about discounts for booking a package of lessons.
  • Hire the tutor on a trail basis to make sure they are a good fit.
