Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

For students looking to hone their skills with algebra, trigonometry, or calculus, a math tutor can be a good option to consider. There are tutors available for all ages and math levels, and good ones know how to tailor their services to the needs of their students. Whether you're hiring services for a grade-school student, or need help with your own college courses, finding the right math tutor is key.

To make the best decision and find a math tutor who speaks to your needs, it's important to take all of the most important factors into consideration. Take a look at some of the most commonly asked math tutoring questions and answers below.

How much does a math tutor cost?

On average, you can expect to pay a math tutor around $40 per hour. However, this price can vary depending on the skill and experience of the tutor, and the specific subject matter. Some tutors can charge as much as double this rate.

What should you expect when you hire a math tutor?

While there are many kinds of math tutors available, you should expect yours to be polite, professional, and skilled in the subject area they're teaching. A college degree in a math or science-related field is a good standard to expect.

How to find the best math tutor for your child?

A good place to start when seeking a math tutor is your local library, where you may find offers of tutor services pinned on a bulletin board, or offered by the library itself. There are also online tutoring services where you can choose an in-person or remote tutor to work with.

What are some chain math tutoring services?

There are a variety of math tutoring services online that can connect you with a tutor who has the exact skill set you're looking for. Some of the most popular are:

  • Skooli

  • Learn To Be
  • Tutor.com

  • Chegg Study

  • Pearson's Smarthinking

  • Mathnasium

What do math tutors do when tutoring?

Math tutors use many of the same techniques as school teachers, except they focus their attention on a single student's needs. They'll start by identifying the areas that need the most attention, and then assign work and review concepts that help strengthen these areas.

What makes an outstanding math tutor?

Beyond outstanding math knowledge, a good math tutor should be able to form a meaningful connection with their student. By understanding a student's specific needs, a tutor can identify problems areas and create a work plan designed to improve their skills.

Do math tutors really help?

Math tutors can help build a student's skills in math by improving their understanding of the underlying concepts. While classroom teachers often don't have the time to tailor their lessons to each student, a tutor can ensure their student grasps a given concept before moving on to the next one.

What qualifications do math tutors need?

A math tutor needs more than just a basic understanding of the subject matter they plan to teach, and they should ideally have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, or a tutoring certification. This will let them take a broad and deep approach to each lesson they bring to their student.

What are some math tutoring best practices?

There are a number of strategies that can be employed when tutoring math. Here are a few to keep in mind:

  • Use visuals and images
  • Ask students to explain their thought process
  • Make real-world connections
  • Choose a quiet place to teach
  • Find different ways to make a lesson hands-on

Where do tutoring sessions take place once you hire a tutor?

Tutoring sessions most often take place either in the home of the client or at a quiet public place such as a library. Some large-scale tutoring businesses may have their own space where their students can come for one-on-one lessons.

What qualifies a tutor to tutor students for advanced placement standardized tests? 

Since Advanced Placement tests often demand a greater understanding of more advanced math concepts, a qualified tutor should hold a degree in a math-related field and demonstrate a deep understanding of the subject matter.

How do tutors measure your child\'s progress?

A good math tutor stays in constant communication with your child, ensuring that each concept is fully understood before moving on to the next one. They measure progress by having a student find correct answers on their own, and then explain the thought processes that led them there.

Do math tutors regularly communicate with your child’s teachers?

Unless the tutor has a professional connection with your child's school, contacting their teacher would be difficult. However, putting teachers in contact with a tutor can be a good way to ensure effective learning is happening both in and outside of the classroom.

How can you reinforce your child’s learning during tutoring?

The best way to reinforce tutoring sessions is to provide a quiet environment where the tutoring can take place, such as a study room at the library, or a room of your home. Over the long term, it can also help to track grades and check in with your child regularly.

How do you know if your child needs a math tutor?

Low grades in math are often the first clue that a child needs a math tutor, but what's more important is the reason behind them. If your child is putting forward a consistent effort, completing all their homework, paying attention in class, and yet still struggling, it may be time for a tutor.

What are some things that a tutor can help with?

The best part about hiring a math tutor is that they can help with just about any learning-related issue. Here are a few examples:

  • Completing homework on time
  • Preparing for an exam
  • Improving problem-solving speed
  • Understanding abstract concepts

When should you hire a math tutor for best test results?

Ideally, it's always best to hire a math tutor earlier rather than later. By building the groundwork and assisting their student every step of the way, a tutor can help improve test scores over time. In contrast, hiring a tutor the week or day before a test won't be as effective.
