Tutors are more popular now than ever before. Attempting to teach a child at home today can be a real challenge when our lingo and approach seems to be a foreign language to them.

The methods used to teach our children are far different than how we learned several years ago. However, a qualified tutor can both explain a subject in current terms, and provide the teaching patience that many families are looking for. So how do parents go about finding the best tutor for their child?


WyzAnt is the expert in education and training. Their easy-to-use database of qualified tutors is both free and wide-ranging. Qualified tutors are available across the nation to teach just about any subject to students of all ages. When looking for a tutor, your search should start with WyzAnt.

For high school and college-age students who need help with school, Chegg is a convenient option. Tutors can help students at any time of day or night, and pricing plans can be chosen on a weekly, monthly, or as-needed basis. Customers should keep a close eye on their billing, however; many users report being overcharged for help or having difficulties with getting subscription plans cancelled.

Mathnasium offers onsite learning centers for those struggling with match. We appreciated that Mathnasium measures students success by how well they improve in school. For those challenged in other subjects, they will need to look elsewhere for a tutor.

Despite some confusing lingo, School Tutoring Academy only offers tutoring via online. For those unable to find a tutor in their local area, this might be an only option but we were concerned with the effectiveness for many children trying to learn via a web cam.

Sylvan misses the mark with undisclosed pricing and expensive evaluation fees. We found numerous complaints of Sylvan's customers that had paid thousands of dollars in tutoring fees and were unhappy as a result. For more affordable, and convenient tutoring options we recommend you choose a higher ranked company.

A number of tutor services exist today that match qualified personal tutors, trained in one or several subjects, with the student in need. However, these services and respective tutors can vary greatly in price and the subjects they teach.

Before you hire a tutor for your child, you should consider the following:

  • Focus. Which age groups and learning subjects does the company provide tutoring for?
  • Location. Will the tutoring occur at your home, at a separate location, or online?
  • Cost. What is the cost of the tutoring service?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Tutor Services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right tutor for your child's needs!
