If you want the best possible STAAR test prep to help your student pursue their educational goals, Varsity Tutors offers private STAAR classes you may wish to look into. The STAAR (or State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) exams are used by the Texas Board of Education to determine whether a student has progressed enough academically to advance to the next grade level. If you feel that your student could benefit from formal STAAR preparation, we can connect you with one-on-one STAAR tutoring services today!

One of the most important components of STAAR prep is identifying the format of all of the exams your student is studying for. Consider the STAAR Grade 5 Science Exam in the table below:

STAAR Grade 5 Science Section # Questions
Matter and Energy 6
Force, Motion, and Energy 8
Earth and Space 10
Organisms and Environments 12

As you can see, Organisms and Environments constitute the plurality of questions on the exam, so traditional STAAR prep solutions emphasize it. However, your student might be comfortable with that topic and benefit more from reviewing Matter and Energy. A private STAAR course can concentrate on your student's unique areas of opportunity to improve study efficiency.

Since students in Grades 3-12 take some kind of STAAR at the end of the year, the benefits of private STAAR test preparation last for the duration of a student's educational career. Here are the topics on the Grade 8 Social Studies Exam:

STAAR Grade 8 Social Studies Section # Questions
History 17
Geography and Culture 10
Government and Citizenship 10
Economics, Science, Technology, and Society 7

History constitutes the plurality of the questions here, but it's also the primary emphasis of most social studies classes. Your student may get more out of reviewing geography, government, and economics during their STAAR test prep to better supplement their classroom instruction.

Private STAAR tutors may also be able to build STAAR classes around your student's individual learning style. For instance, a visual learner might benefit from using flashcards to study the significance of proper nouns for a History STAAR, while a hands-on learner might perform an experiment with their instructor to illustrate the concepts on a Science test. Private instruction also virtually ensures that your student's work receives immediate feedback, allowing any mistakes to be corrected in a timely fashion.

If your students sometimes feels apprehensive about standardized exams, they may be able to take practice tests as part of their STAAR prep and calm their nerves. Taking practice exams can help a student identify their academic strengths and any areas of opportunity that could use further work. Likewise, students can develop a familiarity with the time available to them on test day. Most importantly, taking practice exams during a STAAR class can help a student understand exactly what's expected of them, taking the unknown out of STAAR test prep.

Varsity Tutors also tries to make STAAR test prep as convenient as possible. Our exclusive Live Learning Platform facilitates digital study sessions, providing all of the benefits of face-to-face tutoring without the associated hassle. Similarly, we try to refer every student to an instructor who meets their scheduling needs to mitigate any potential scheduling conflicts.
