Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a full ride to Duke University.
“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”
"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."
"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."

A poor understanding of math and mathematical theories affects test scores and prevents students from enjoying math and understanding how to use it in everyday life. A private tutor can spend the time and effort it takes to help a student understand mathematical methods as well as the reasoning behind them. When students can grasp these, then they can use those critical-thinking, problem-solving, and logical skills in many aspects of life, not just math class.
Even the very best math teachers are limited by how many students are in their classrooms. In most classrooms, it’s simply not possible for a teacher to give each student the attention and care that they need, especially if they’re struggling with math.
A tutor can focus entirely on one student. The student doesn’t have to worry about being embarrassed about others hearing their “silly” questions and can learn at their own pace.
Even when students are only tutored in one or a few subjects, the study skills that they gain in those sessions can be applied to other areas of their studies.
The learning methods and memorization tips that students learn in tutoring can improve study skill and give a student better results, boosting their confidence. These new skills and increased confidence can lead to a sustained improvement in academic performance.
There are many different ways to grasp the same concepts. Standard methods of learning don’t always work for students, but tutoring allows students to find teachers and teaching styles that suit them and their unique learning needs.
Customized instruction also helps with a student’s self-awareness as it helps them to learn and realize more about the unique way in which they function.
One-on-one tutoring means that students cannot rely on anyone else to help them out when the going gets tough. They can’t pretend that they don’t understand so that someone else is called to answer a question and there are no friends to whisper the answer.
Instead, they have to ask questions when they need to and be honest when they need help. This teaches students to do everything that they can in order to perform well in their tutoring sessions because they can’t rely on anyone else.
Some students require repetition and multiple explanations of processes, theories, and reasonings. A tutor must have the patience to give this to their students. Students can get frustrated when they don’t understand a subject, haven’t slept enough, or are bored/under-stimulated. A patient tutor will be able to handle such situations with grace.
It is critical that our tutors are in it for the right reasons and are dedicated to the long-term success of Learner students. This helps to ensure that every session with students is a productive, effective, and excellent one.
Additionally, a motivated tutor will be able to energize, direct, and sustain positive behavior and a positive environment over the course of the tutoring period.
Every student is different and learns differently. Therefore, our tutors must be able to adjust their approach based on the student’s needs, not only as they differ from person to person, but even when it comes to the same person as they progress.
Tutors must have the enthusiasm to inspire students and help them develop a love of learning. People of all ages, even children, are very perceptive and can tell whether the person teaching them is really excited. A good tutor brings this energy no matter what is happening in their lives. This enthusiasm must extend even (in fact, especially) to when things aren’t going great in class.
A good tutor will demonstrate strong communication skills including active listening, speaking clearly, engaging students, and visualization. This helps to build relationships by allowing genuine connections and understanding to take place. Additionally, good communication means that things like instructions and comments don’t get lost along the way.
It’s important that tutors see each of their students as individuals. They must understand their students have unique needs and challenges. They must be able to build rapport and ensure the student feels comfortable and valued on their specific terms and in their specific ways.
Sometimes the tutor will have to acknowledge they don’t know the answer and work with the student to help them understand the concept(s) better. Tutors must be able to see their own shortcomings honestly so that they can appreciate and implement feedback. This way, they can improve continuously.
Tutors should possess a passion for learning, supporting, and teaching students. While extremely rewarding, tutoring can also be difficult. Having ambition means that tutors possess the drive to succeed and won’t give up on their students. They will be constantly working towards their goals, completing them, and then setting new ones.
Online tutoring takes place in a virtual classroom instead of in the same physical space. An online math tutoring service gives you flexible scheduling and access to a broad pool of math experts who don’t need to live in your area.
Learner has a very selective hiring process. We require tutors to have at least a bachelor’s degree and several years of experience as an online math tutor with a proven history of helping students master algebra.

A Learner algebra tutor teaches fundamental algebra topics, like how to divide fractions and what to do with quadratic functions, in a clear and interesting way. Your child’s tutor will adjust their instruction style and progression according to your child’s needs and learning speed.
Our goal is to match each elementary and high school student with the best tutor for them. If your first tutor match isn’t a good fit for your child, you can switch to a different tutor. The first session is completely free and is a perfect opportunity to gauge compatibility between your child and the tutor.
You can schedule your first session in a few days! After you fill out one online questionnaire, you can complete a consultation with our Academic Advisor to find the right tutor. Once your child is matched with an algebra tutor, you can schedule the first session at a convenient time.
Your child will work one-on-one with their tutor in our online platform, which is compatible with most devices. The tutor may incorporate math class elements like lectures, practice questions, and homework assistance into each session, depending on your child’s needs.
Our tutors have helped many students improve their Algebra 1 grades and increase their college entrance exam scores. By teaching essential algebraic concepts like linear equations and radical expressions, our tutors prepare students for success in Algebra 1I and any college algebra course.
A well-qualified tutor usually costs between $60 and $80 per hour. Sometimes rates change depending on how many hours of tutoring you pay for.
If you want to become an algebra tutor with Learner, you must have a degree from a four-year university and several years of tutoring experience online. We only hire tutors who can prove their success in helping their students improve their academic performance.
Generally, no. A private tutor is usually considered a personal expense not eligible for deduction. However, tutoring fees may be considered a medical expense for a special needs student.
If you are unsatisfied with your child’s Learner tutor, we offer the chance to switch to another tutor free of charge. The first tutoring session is completely free.
