5th Grade Tutoring FAQ

Private Tutoring For Your 5th Grader

Varsity Tutors will find a 5th grade tutor for your student who has been thoroughly screened. You can be confident they have the right knowledge, experience, and skills to help your student work through 5th grade material.

Only the best tutors are chosen for the Varsity Tutors platform and your student can benefit from this. Their instructor can help increase your student's motivation by helping them set and achieve small goals throughout each session and show them how these small goals add up to big achievements over the course of the school year. There's no reason your 5th grader should have to go it alone.

Experienced Help In Math, Reading, and Writing

Your student will have greater advantages with 5th grade tutoring than trying to learn their lessons on their own, with a guidebook, or using educational software. Having someone focused on their particular learning strengths and challenges as they move through algebraic thinking or literary terms can help them discover their preferred learning process.

Improve Your 5th Grader's Levels With A Tutor

Your student's 5th grade tutor can help them in all areas of their curriculum. They can show them how to write an opinion piece that supports their views with evidence that's organized in a clear and concise manner.

A tutor can guide your student as they determine the use of language in metaphors and similes in a variety of texts. In math, your student's private instructor can help them understand volume and how mathematical operations represent the measurement of volume. Through one-on-one attention in customized lessons, your student's tutor can teach them the academic skills they need to think on their own and process information in a more mature way than they have thus far.

How much does a tutor for a 5th grader cost?

The amount you pay for 5th grade tutoring depends on various factors. Your student's specific needs are always taken into account.

If your student needs tutoring once a week throughout the school year, you can probably expect to pay a different rate than if they need instruction multiple days per week for the year or if they need extra tutoring help over the summer months. You can help mitigate the cost of tutoring sessions by having your student study with friends or classmates with the same tutor or join an online Varsity Tutors class. To get specific pricing information, contact us online or by phone for a quote based on your child's unique needs.

How can I homeschool my 5th grader?

There are many options for homeschooling your student. You can choose from private tutoring, group tutoring, or larger online class solutions, depending on what fits your student's needs.

Varsity Tutors has a variety of packages that can be arranged into a personalized plan when you speak with an Educational Director. This type of help can make it easier for you to adjust to working from home and balancing all the aspects of life that you're now responsible for in new ways. Many of the things your 5th grader learn are a bit different than how you learned them, and this gives them a positive, effective learning experience while you can focus on the big picture.

Is a tutor worth it for a 5th grader?

In so many ways, a 5th grade tutor is worth it for your student. This is a critical year for your student--the last before they head to middle school.

It's a good time to learn important study skills, basic foundations for the kind of math they'll be doing in middle and high school, and a time when they can secure a love for learning. A compatible tutor can enhance all these things for your student in addition to helping them learn the curriculum. Providing your 5th grade student with a grade-level tutor may be the best thing you do for them this year.

Recent 5th Grade Tutoring Session Notes

Online 5th Grade Tutoring review by Elena
We learned how to multiply and divide with decimals. Then she used today's lesson and our previous session to find the discounted prices of items in a store (page in her workbook that worked perfectly with our session!). She is making great progress. She really worked hard in this session, and took deep breaths whenever frustrated. I'm very proud of her hard work. For Monday, she needs to complete the book summary and the two pages of practice work with decimals.

Online 5th Grade Tutoring review by Emily
Today was very productive. I brought over a book that introduced fifth grade material to see if it was something the student would be interested in working on. After flipping through the book, we both agreed that it would be best if we focused primarily on 5th grade math. Starting our next session, we will be working out of the 5th grade math workbooks. I also brought over a game that I thought she would benefit from, seeing as she is more responsive to learning by playing games. It seemed to work out very well. She was motivated to answer the questions and seemed more and more interested as she kept answering the cards correctly.

Online 5th Grade Tutoring review by Jeremiah
The student and I went over reading and math. For the reading sections, he read passages on octopi and cats in Egypt. He answered nearly all of the questions correctly. After this, we focused on math. I had him do addition, subtraction, and multiplication problems. He did very well with it all. I didn't leave him with extra practice.

Online 5th Grade Tutoring review by Carrie
The student showed me his personal narrative draft: mini-lessons on making a web as a pre-write, using 5 sense details/similes, and hooking your reader with a lead. He completed a multiplication table (7 min 30 sec). We reviewed area model strategy for 2 and 3 digit factor multiplication, and worked on single-step multiplication word problems. HW: Rewrite draft with hook and 5 sense details. 6 single-step word problems. Practice multiplication facts/multiplication table.

Online 5th Grade Tutoring review by Sierra
During this session, the student and I reviewed a skills packet based on the material we have discussed this far. After he finished ten of the problems, the student and I would review the answers, as well as his reasoning for his answer choices. For next week's session, he and I will focus on visualizing fractions and graphing.
