Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

Accomplished Detroit tutors meet our exacting qualification requirements, pass a multi-step interview process, and undergo background screening. One of Varsity Tutors’ expert directors helps to pair you with a qualified tutor to ensure the best possible match – it’s even backed up with a money-back guarantee.

Each tutor skillfully differentiates instruction to meet his or her students' needs. Tutors provide one-on-one sessions when and where you feel most comfortable.

How much does a private tutor in Detroit cost?

The price of meeting with a tutor in Detroit depends on several different factors, including what level of material you or your student are reviewing, how often your study sessions take place, your location, and so on. For instance, tutoring for a student focusing on handwriting at Robert Trombly Elementary School carries a different price tag than tutoring for an English major working on their master's thesis.

Similarly, you may pay a different price for a regular study schedule than you would for periodic emergency sessions. The size of your study group can also influence your bill. Many tutors offer both 1:1 sessions and group sessions where peers can study together, and each arrangement offers a variety of benefits. Varsity Tutors can also enroll you in a small group class if you're looking for an additional cost-effective supplement to private instruction. Some people believe that private instruction is only for students who are struggling, but that's a misconception. While a tutor in Detroit can certainly help students who are falling behind, they can also provide high-achievers with a more stimulating study experience than they are receiving in the classroom. If you have any additional questions regarding what a tutor can do or how much it might cost, please contact us online or by phone to discuss your circumstances in further detail.

How do I find a private tutor in Detroit?

Finding a great tutor in Detroit can be more challenging than you might expect, especially if you aren't sure how to verify that a promising candidate actually possesses the academic knowledge and teaching experience they claim to. If you've ever tried to schedule a meeting, you also know that it can be tough to figure out the logistics of a meetup.

Thankfully, Varsity Tutors maintains a database of thousands of certified tutors, allowing us to connect students with private instructors who suit their scheduling and academic needs in as little as 24 hours.

If your child lacks the motivation to pay attention in class, we'll find you a goal-oriented tutor who can help your student set achievable targets to maintain their interest. If you could retain more of the information from your textbooks, we'll refer you to a tutor who can share active reading tips that can help you boost your retention rate. Just tell us what you're looking for in a private tutor and let our expert Educational Directors take care of the rest.

We will even find you a Detroit tutor you can study alongside without ever leaving the house. Our mobile-friendly Live Learning Platform allows you to study anywhere with a good internet connection, including your bedroom or the library at Cass Technical High School. It also leverages powerful features like integrated practice problems to deliver the face-to-face study experience students expect.

What types of tutoring are offered in Detroit?

At Varsity Tutors, we take pride in our ability to find a qualified tutor for everything from the cell cycle to the use of alliteration in Walt Whitman's poetry. If your student needs help differentiating between mitosis and meiosis, their instructor can provide a Venn diagram highlighting the differences.

Alternatively, your instructor can provide a list of literary devices you can reference when analyzing works of fiction. You are always in control of what you study with a tutor in Detroit, helping you make the most of your sessions.

A private teacher in Detroit can also assist students with their standardized test prep. If you are nervous about taking the ACT, SAT, DAT, Praxis, or another exam, we'll find you a coach who can share mindfulness techniques you can use to mitigate your test anxiety. You can also take practice tests under realistic test-taking conditions to develop a better idea of the concepts you should be concentrating on. Our network even includes experts on hundreds of different professional certifications if you want to add an extra dimension to your resume.

Furthermore, a private tutor can help you homeschool the student in your life. Designing a lesson plan seems really easy until you try to do it, at which point you'll appreciate all of the expert assistance you can get. A tutor can also teach any concepts you don't feel qualified to present on your own. The Learning Lab provides parents with a host of educational resources as well, including weekly progress reports and assessments designed to objectively measure your student's performance. Please reach out to one of our knowledgeable Educational Directors if you have any further questions about how a tutor can help your homeschooling efforts.

How qualified are tutors in Detroit?

While anybody can refer to themselves as a Detroit tutor, Varsity Tutors uses a comprehensive screening process to weed out many candidates. As a result, you can trust that the instructor who we refer to you will have the academic expertise and excellent teaching skills you're looking for from a private tutor.

Of course, we don't only look at a prospective tutor's academic credentials. We also search for instructors who possess the intangible qualities that separate great tutors from the merely average ones. For instance, we look for passionate instructors who are excited to help students because these instructors are motivated to go the extra mile for their students. We also verify that each instructor is comfortable using a variety of teaching methodologies, enabling them to teach to each pupil's preferred learning style instead of shoehorning them into a generic approach. This personalized attention is a huge benefit for students of all ages and ability levels.

A private tutor can be a powerful addition to any study plan. Whether your student is studying logarithms at Renaissance High School or you're taking a course on international relations at a local educational institution such as Wayne State University, a private teacher in Detroit can provide the support you need to reach for your educational goals. Contact Varsity Tutors today for more information on how easy it can be to start working with a qualified tutor.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Samuel in Detroit, MI
Worked with the student on writing, how best to structure sentences; he's worried about returning to his A levels and is finally taking personal responsibility for improving the grammar. Worked with the student on preparing an assignment for English as well. Good session.

Tutoring review by Christine in Detroit, MI
Today, we focused on the English section of the ACT. I am focusing on timing him to perform sections because he is pretty accurate in his answers when given the time. My primary goal is to work towards making him comfortable with the time restraints so that he can keep his good performance and answer the questions in a timely manner. His timing is already starting to improve and I hope that improvement continues.

Tutoring review by Rebekah in Detroit, MI
I reviewed the student's rough draft of his paper. After we discussed structural and grammatical changes that could be made, we continued our review of grammar for his final English test. We worked on correcting sentence fragments and run-on sentences.

Tutoring review by Ashok in Detroit, MI
The student and I continued discussing Heat, including the 3 laws of thermodynamics, and solved some practice questions.  This concludes our discussion of heat.  He seems capable of doing most of the SAT II problems on this subject.

Tutoring review by Adam in Detroit, MI
The student and I reviewed expected values using a z-score table, and binomial distributions and probability. This session went very well. She is getting much better at understanding the reasoning behind the calculations and I've adapted my teaching to her learning style. Her confidence is also improving slightly. She did a little better on the last quiz she got back, and should do even better on the last one she took.
