Why Choose Varsity Tutors for Summer Tutoring

Dedicated Private Summer Tutoring Online

If you're concerned that your student may lose the academic gains they made during the school year over summer vacation, a summer tutor may be the right option for you. Working with a summer tutor allows your student to practice their academic skills, keeping their minds sharp and ready for the resumption of classes in the fall.

Varsity Tutors will connect you with a great summer tutor in as little as 24 hours, helping your family enjoy some fun in the sun without worrying about finding a great instructor. Please continue reading to learn more about the benefits of private tutoring.

The Most Certified Summer Tutors Available

Varsity Tutors maintains an extensive database filled with independent instructors, allowing our experts to leverage advanced tutor-matching tools to locate a qualified instructor for any student's scheduling and academic needs. We vet every instructor in our network, so you can trust that all of the information your student receives during summer tutoring sessions is accurate and up-to-date.

We also look for instructors who understand how to identify why a student may be struggling with long division or Shakespeare, allowing them to address the root cause of the issue instead of its effects. Since every student learns differently, we also look for instructors who can craft customized study plans designed around a specific pupil's needs to enhance their efficiency.

How much does a summer tutor cost?

The cost of private summer tutoring depends on the specific services you're looking for and how often study sessions take place. For example, parents who opt for our Instant Tutoring service to connect with an instructor right away may pay a different price than someone who arranges regular study sessions on Sunday evenings for the duration of the summer.

If you're looking for something more affordable than one-on-one instruction, we will set your student up with group tutoring or even a summer tutoring class where they can study with other students. Contact us using the "Get Started" tab above or by phone to learn about all of the different options available to you.

How does online summer tutoring work?

When you let us find you an instructor, your student will meet their summer tutor on our exclusive Live Learning Platform. Our Live Learning Platform is a virtual classroom your student can access on a variety of mobile devices, so you don't have to worry about driving them anyplace.

If you're concerned about the quality of online instruction, don't be. Our platform leverages great features such as integrated practice problems and video chat capabilities to facilitate a collaborative learning environment. Our platform also records every study session automatically, allowing your student to go back for a refresher at their leisure. You can also watch sessions back and monitor your student's progress.

Are summer tutors worth it?

If you're still on the fence about private tutoring, you should know that working with a live instructor can improve test scores by 35 percent more than software-based alternatives. A live tutor can establish a personal rapport with your student and design study sessions around their interests.

For instance, a baseball team's batting averages can be a fun way for students to explore decimals, while reading about something exciting like space or dinosaurs can be much more engaging than the typical reading textbook. In contrast, software-based learning may always feel like homework your student is unlikely to be interested in.

We would be delighted to answer any questions you have about private tutoring or the services we provide, so reach out for more information. We look forward to playing our part in your student's pursuit of academic excellence!

How can a tutor help you with summer tutoring?

Are you looking to get more help in a subject you find particularly challenging before the next school year starts? Are the summer months the only possible time for you to devote your full time and attention to studying for an important exam? Summer does not need to just be about leisure and relaxation. It can be an excellent opportunity to continue your education.

The average American student loses one to two months of academic progress during the summer. In a society that increasingly tests your skill set quantitatively through admissions tests such as the LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT, along with many others, this regression can be highly problematic at all levels of education. Summer tutoring can help you stay sharp, even when classes aren't in session. Don't let all the hard work you put in over the course of the school year go to waste and fade away during the summer months.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online Summer Tutoring review by Taylor
The student and I met up for his digital hardware design lab. There we presented some of his prior work to the teacher. Afterward we worked on Verilog modules for a 4-bit flip flop, and a 1-bit 4-cycle shift register, talking somewhat about clock edges, the "always" keyword, flip flop types, and the concept of wires as variables. We demonstrated the modules for the instructor and then chatted about requirements for the final project, specifically the concept of left- and right-shift operators.

The student and I spent the first half of our session focusing on reviewing for her math assessment. We then did a variety of writing exercises, including how to use descriptive words, using exact verbs, etc. Good session!

Online Summer Tutoring review by Wesley
The student and I worked mostly on Algebra for his quiz that he had the next day. After working for about an hour in that subject area, we bounced to a vocabulary test that was a take home. He should have a hundred on that test! We talked about what he had going on for the two days left this week and next Monday. He seems to be making progress in organization and his understanding of Algebra.

Online Summer Tutoring review by Laura
We worked on line memorization and character development for the play she is doing in her drama class. We also created an outline of goals she is working to achieve by the end of the semester, and we brainstormed ideas for how she could reach them.

Online Summer Tutoring review by Neil
Today was my first meeting with the student. We covered a large portion of Utilitarianism, as well as some general guidelines for approaching philosophy and the reading of philosophical works. I covered the importance of working through the complex material slowly and with purpose--analysis of arguments and a comprehension of the main conclusions that the author draws. We covered a significant number of the concepts covered by the student in his essay, primarily focusing on the strange relationship between virtue and happiness that he attempts to demonstrate, as well as his responses to a number of objections to his position.

Online Summer Tutoring review by Adam
The student and I studied for an upcoming test today. We started by going over the notes her professor had sent her from the last assignment. I then taught her every concept from chapters 1-5, focusing on the interpretation and meaning of various statistical measures and tests. We also learned how to perform all these statistics in the software. The student is making good progress in learning the material.
