Mr. D. was able to keep my daughter engaged and interested the entire session. He made her feel confident with reading. She stated that he was the "best teacher in the world". She gave him two thumbs up and a heart. I'm very pleased with my investment towards my child's education using Varsity Tutors.

We've helped thousands of learners of all ages improve their reading and English skills including teaching English as a second language.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

ACT Reading Tutoring review by Phoebe in San Rafael, CA
The student is taking the SSAT in December. He just took it in October and didn't get the score he wanted. Today, we discussed Verbal and Reading Comp - the 2 areas he is most concerned with. I modeled processes and then he did some drills. Homework has been sent.

ACT Reading Tutoring review by Sara in San Rafael, CA
This is a wonderful student to work with! We were able to hit all the areas she wanted to focus on in our 2 hours. While some areas it seemed she had her technique down well, others I was able to assist in clearing up issues or providing guidance. In the future, we will focus on giving her harder questions in sentence completions, sentence improvements, spotting errors and paragraph improvement. In inferences (passage reading) I would like to focus more on basics to ensure her analytical skills are solid before increasing the difficulty. Overall a very bright student with great potential to improve.

ACT Reading Tutoring review by Laura in San Rafael, CA
The student and I discussed strategies from remembering vocabulary words. We also practiced questions that she frequently misses (questions with vocab words she doesn't know, tone questions, inference questions, etc.). I have asked her to review frequent Greek and Latin roots, study vocab, and complete a practice test we will review Sunday to ensure that we are accomplishing an increased score outcome.

ACT Reading Tutoring review by Abigail in San Rafael, CA
Student A and I went over areas he needs to focus on for his next round of SSAT testing in December. His November test went reasonably well, but he scored much lower than he has been on the tests he has done around me and the areas we've gone over. We outlined a plan that he is intent on initiating, which is good and motivating. Student B and I went over the essays she is working on for a couple of universities. Both look great and the latter is basically there, I told her. I think she should finalize it and do a read over with her mom/dad to make sure she's dotted the i's and crossed the t's, etc.

ACT Reading Tutoring review by Micah in San Rafael, CA
We worked on critical reading again, and came up with some definite strategies. The student tends to do a lot of work in his head, and we went over methods of lightening his cognitive load by writing checks and X next to right and wrong answers, respectively. We also talked about functional analysis of passages including the importance of determining the overall message and key points of each passage. We talked about using shorthand notes to remind him of the passage's arguments, especially in sections where he is asked to contrast two passages. We also talked about using visual mnemonics for vocabulary.

ACT Reading Tutoring review by David in San Rafael, CA
Since this was the student's last session before the SAT, I didn't want to burn him out too much. We went through timed sections of writing and reading comprehension sections, which were his two biggest concerns. He's shown a lot of progress, and seems much more comfortable than when we started. We also worked on essays, where he has made noticeable strides. However, he still has a tendency to rush a little bit and forget basic punctuation and syntax from time to time. Finally, we went over the basic testing strategies, and I encouraged him to get a good night's sleep and relax when he finally sits down for the test.
