Mathhelp was founded by Mike Maggart who was a high school math teacher at one of the top private schools in the United States. Maggart became frustrated by the inefficiency and exclusiveness of private tutoring. He felt that all students should have access to tutoring, not just the wealthiest students. Maggart found away to replicate the entire private tutoring experience so that many more students could have access to the help they needed. Mathhelp offers math tutoring for students from fifth grade to college. They also provide test prep for some of the major exams.
All Mathhelp tutors are current or former math teachers. Mathhelp selects the finest teachers in the country to design, write, and present their lessons. Their educational team consists of middle school, high school, and college math teachers who have all spent years in the classroom. The lessons provided were originally designed by Mike Maggart. He is currently ranked the thirteenth "Smartest" private high school teacher in the country by Business Insider.
Mathhelp provides students with many math courses to choose from. These math courses range in difficulty and subject matter. Some of the math classes available include pre algebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and college algebra.
Mathhelp also offers test prep classes to help students study for large tests. These large exams often are a factor as to which colleges students will be able to attend. It is important for students to prepare for these tests with test preparation classes. Some of these test prep classes include ACT, GMAT, GRE, SAT, and PSAT. These prep classes cover the math portion of these tests that are taken by high school and college students.
Mathhelp is exclusive to math tutoring. For clients who are looking for a more comprehensive tutoring experience will have to look elsewhere for their tutoring needs. While we like companies who offer more subjects and courses, there are benefits to the exclusivity of offering tutoring with one topic. They not only offer all types of math tutoring, but test prep as well.
Mathhelp has a limited grade level that they will tutor. They currently only offer tutoring for fifth grade up to college. While this seems expansive, it really isn't when you consider that children begin learning math in kindergarten. Often times multiplication and division are taught in third grade, which can be very difficult topics for children. Other tutoring services offer math tutoring for grades as low as pre-k. Because Mathhelp is specialized in math, we would like to see them expand their grade levels to include all grades. Younger students could greatly benefit from experience math tutors as they learn early math facts, multiplication, and division.
Mathhelp offers no online tools for the tutoring process. Online tools are a great benefit to the students, and makes the tutoring sessions more effective. The tools we look for include chat, video, whiteboard, file sharing, and equation tools. The chat tool allows for students to text and talk to their tutors. This allows students to ask any questions, get clarification, or receive further explanations on difficult topics. This could be very beneficial in math topics, as some children struggle with math more than any other topic. The whiteboard tool allows both the student and the tutor to draw out problems and examples. File sharing allows students and tutors to swap files with ease. The equation tool allows students to enter in math equations. We feel that Mathhelp should provide some if not all of these tools to their services.
The explanations for the NYSTCE were thorough and understandable. The study plan was laid out very easily and you could skip around and focus on what you needed to.

Loved the GED videos with step-by-step work.
Made me feel confident in going back to school :) Was well worth the money and they will see me as a returning customer!!
I am not one to leave reviews ever. But I felt the need to leave a review for Mathhelp.com so other people can know how good this website is! I was skeptical at first having to pay for a PERT study course but I am so glad I did. I hadn't done any math since high school which was 7 years ago for me and I didn't remember anything at all. But I followed this course for 2 weeks and in that time I learned more than I had at years of school. I scored a perfect 150 on my PERT and because of it I got to take the Accuplacer and scored well on that too which placed me in Pre Calc and Trig! It saved me from taking over a year worth of lower level maths and thousands of dollars. For $50 it was definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to take any math placement test or just wants a refresher in math. I only wish all my math courses used mathhelp.com it is by far much superior to Pearsons mymathlab which pails in comparison. The structure of this course was by far the most efficient way I have ever been taught math. The clear explanations in the short videos and practice questions afterwards makes learning the material so easy! I just want to say thank you!
My CBEST Mathematics exam went great. I passed the exam with the help of the Mathhelp lessons. I found everything helpful. From the teacher videos giving instructions to the practice tests. One of the most helpful elements was being able to see the "work" whenever I answered a question wrong so that I could learn what step I missed or what I did wrong. I appreciated everything the website had to offer.
this course helped a lot! i went from a 340 to a 356!!!
Please DO NOT spend your money here. Complete waste of time and my money. I spent $49.99 initially on their service for a month and they did not help me increase my score whatsoever and covered unnecessary topics like PEMDAS but didn't cover calculus. In addition, after understanding that this was a complete waste of my time and a scam, I stopped using this service. However, they charged ANOTHER 49.99 without any prior notice to my bank account. Now I have wasted my time, $100, and they refuse to provide me a refund.
So incredibly helpful! I got a 71 on my Aleks placement thanks to Mathhelp!
The ALEKS exam went great! I got a result of 63. However, I will be retaking the exam because I aim to get over 75. Mathhelp has helped me a lot and all elements were helpful.
The program was very helpful! It helped me pass my ALEKS test.
My son has been using Mathhelp.com to review previous math from years ago. You know the saying, use it or lose it. He does just two sections a day and it takes less than 15 minutes. Great to get ready for the ACT exam. Mathhelp.com has a number of organized sequences for a number of important tests. Don't let your child be held back because math held them back. As far as the 7 day return policy, forget it. The program works, just use it!
This was WORTH IT! Excellent program. So helpful! I was very well prepared. The videos are concise and to the point which makes the information digestible! The pacing, subject breakdowns and interactive quizzes and practices really made the difference. Math was my worse subject but I was able to test in Pre-Calculus and beyond because of Math Help. I surpassed the required score for both Accuplacer QAS and AAFI wish I could take them along side my classes now!! Pay the money if you’re shooting for a test.. you will pass!
This ALEKS program really helped me brush up on some much needed fundamental lessons. Thank you so much MATHhelp!
I was very happy with the what Mathhelp.com helped me achieve. I used the Aleks course to study and prepare to test into my universities trigonometry class. I needed at least a 51 and ended up scoring a 60! The instructors in all the videos do such a great job at breaking the content into easy to understand concepts.
I passed the Accuplacer test thank you. I was very happy with the course.
My son only has the final exam left to go in Algebra 2. He is thrilled to be almost finished, and he has learned so much this year. The video format of having a teacher to show him how to work problems has been so helpful for him, with extremely clear explanations. Thank you for a great math program. It is broken into small, manageable chunks that make it achievable. The organization of topics and progression of the course is in such a nice, logical order. I thought this was a great course and well worth my investment in it. I also appreciated your quick responses to questions that I submitted. Thank you for all the time and effort that went into creating this course. God bless!
The ALEKS went well. I really appreciated your lessons. I will recommend it to others.
Amazing and detail classes that would make you feel that math is simple and child's play.
The key with your TSI math help is when you take the prep, there is “How to get to the answer” and the videos as well…Outstanding. Also, it starts off very slowly, and builds up to the end. The final exam was excellent. You can take a child that only knows adding, subtracting, multiplication and division, and have the child pass TSI math exam...That is amazing. My son, at age 13 will attend full time college for his BSEE degree. Thanks to Mathhelp!
Mathhelp provided an organized and clear approach to the material. The instructional videos are short and effective in teaching the concepts. There is no unnecessary information. The programs are great for anyone looking to increase their abilities. Thank you.
I took Mathhelp's ALEKS program review to place into a transfer program and I was impressed! I nearly placed a class higher than I needed to (75) after going through the course, and I am 3 years out of high school and wasn't ever very good at the subject. They have comprehensive material and it was reviewed very thoroughly in ever video and subsequent videos. I wish I had this available to me in high school! It would have saved me a lot of frustration. If you're a parent reading this, it is worth the subscription if your kid needs a little help in math, you need a little refresher to help your kid, or some combination of the two. I'd bet it's a great resource for homeschooling kids too.
I think the test went well. My son said that he felt well prepared. We liked the course. My son is only 11 so he will be taking the PSAT many more times so we may be back for more in the future!
Thank you so much. The ACT went well. All the lessons were helpful.
I passed my CASA exam. I found the lessons to be very easy to understand and appreciated how it was broken down step by step. The review tests are very helpful too. MathHelp was overall worth it to me.
It was very helpful! Due to this course, I was able to pass my ALEKS exam. Thank you!
DO NOT DO IT! Once I paid the $50 I was unable to log in. I have sent multiple emails and have not received a response. I am looking to cancel but how can I do that if I can't log in? This is so frustrating... I am probably going to get in touch with my bank and see if there is something they can do.
ITS A SCAM, I paid $49.99 and used it all day and suddenly couldn't log in anymore. No response to emails and I checked my email and notice they didn't even send me a verification email for the account. Had to call my bank to file a claim to get my money back!!
Stay away from this web site! It's a scam! I've red a few similar comments about this company but still decided to try due to a few positive comments. 7 day money back offer is a scam! They will not reply to my emails, I've tried a few times already. I've lost $50 and barely even used the app. Scambags...
My ALEKS went great and this course was a huge help. I needed to get a 39 to get into business. I got a 79 and that was majorly due to the effect of this course. Thank you for the platform you provided.
DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY. The company has no active phone number, does not hold to their 7-day money back promise and will not respond to emails. FRAUD ALERT does not give this company any information regarding your bank you will not get it back and they will not respond to your requests.
My account worked for ONLY 1 day then I was unable log in although i subscribed a one month membership, I tried to contacted them several times by phone, e-mail, they NEVER answered me. They didn't even send me a confirmation mail after the subscription. This site is shame and people have to know. If you want to lose money and your time, mathelp is here for you.

I passed the CASA on my first attempt after reviewing with mathhelp.com. I found your program to be very helpful in that it reviewed thoroughly concepts that I had long forgotten. Slope intercept and graphing reviews were very good. I wish I had found this resource when I was in high school or earlier in my college years. Overall I credit my success at passing the casa on my first attempt with my diligence in studying mathhelp.com’s CASA course. Thank you so much for your help!
We read reviews that said MathHelp does not reply to emails, so when we sent a request for help, we were not sure if MathHelp would get back to us. They replied the next day and they are very helpful. Their program and teachers are very good. We have 5 kids and many online learning programs. MathHelp is one of the best, just like having a credentialed teacher in your home teaching. They teach lessons for many textbooks, including the exact one my son has for Algebra. We purchased MathHelp through Homeschool Buyers Co Op.
I cannot say enough good things about this curriculum. The lessons are short, straight to the point, and easy to understand. My daughter, who hates math, is now asking to do the lessons everyday. Mathhelp.com has helped us more than I could ever begin to describe here. It’s worth every penny. Thank you!
I would give it zero stars if I could. We purchased the annual subscription for $199. All was fine and then one day my daughter could not log in...we tried for several days and site kept saying the password was incorrect. They don't respond to emails, there is no phone number and theres a glitch in their "tech support". They just take your money and don't offer services. TERRIBLE. Do not use them
I've been a member of Mathhelp for nearly 4 years. It's definitely not a scam as others have suggested. We've used this with all 3 of our kiddos starting with Pre Algebra through Algebra 2. They do bill on a monthly schedule if you sign up that way. We knew from the start we were going to stick with them for the long term so we do a yearly subscription. It's a little expensive but I see now they've changed their pricing so it's more affordable. We have had some technical problems throughout the years but have always found their customer service to be friendly and responsive. I've recommended them to several other friends that home school and I've never heard any negative comments. As with anything like this you just have to try it and if it works for you then go for it.
I signed up for Mathhelp.com but never received a username or email confirming my purchase. I have sent multiple emails, all which have went unanswered. We are unable to use this site with a username. This is a complete scam. I am contacting my credit card. BEWARE!!! Mathhelp.com is a SCAM!!!!

Although we signed up for a single one month program, the company continues to bill. No phone number to contact and they don't answer their emails. Fortunately the credit card company took care of the problem.
