If you are looking for a math tutor, for example for Precalculus, you need to ensure to all that the prospective tutor you have a curriculum for the course in his fingertips. You can also search online if your child need a math teacher.
Facilitate teachers with good communication skills. This is because too often a math tutor does not know exactly what course expectation is, or what will be in the upcoming test, or whatever. Often students are not clear communicators of this information.

How to find one? The best way is through a recommendation from someone you trust, preferably a math teacher you trust.
The more anonymous sources, such as the recommendation of someone who does not know anything about math instruction, or newspaper ads, the more you are depending on luck.
And if you believe your child needs a tutor? It is recommended that find a tutor who capable to deliver the solutions to every math problem which your child is having.
If your child just needs a little reinforcement or repetitive explanations, classroom teachers may be provided for this, or parents can do it.
This kind of assistance is part of a teacher's job, and it can also be the task of a healthy family. If your child just needs to hold hands to do his homework, he might need to be guided to do its work independently.
Perhaps in such cases is to allow the tutor children with a lack of independent work habits, rather than help.
