# Available online tutors?

My daughter is looking for a Math tutor. We checked out Sylvan and Kuman and were impressed with what they offer, though the price seemed high. I’d like to be able to hire a tutor directly not hire a big company, if I can figure out how. What’s the best way to find a qualified tutor?

Thanks

Jon.

A real world tutor will be a whole lot more efficient and better able to judge and interact with the student than an online tutor (I've done both and speak from experience). If you've got a university in your town you will be able to find grad students in the math and physics departments that will tutor your daughter for a fee of about $20/hour (varies a lot from place to place; can be as low as$10/hour or as high as \$50/hour). The person to approach is the graduate secretary of the relevant department.

Try Tutorswithoutlimits.com and Tutorsteach.com. Both sites allow you to hire the tutor you think would work best for your daughter directly. My son and my daughter both work with a tutor we found through the twl site. The scheduling is much more flexible when you work directly with the tutor. Most of my kid’s sessions are after 8pm because that’s when they are doing their homework and need the help.
