Memphis Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Memphis?

The price you might pay to work with a private instructor could vary depending on your tutoring needs. As an example, your 10th grader attending White Station High School could want to get the jump on their ACT preparations by meeting several times with a private instructor.

This scenario could result in you paying a different rate than if you have your 1st grader meet with an educator to go over their math assignments. Let's say you want to meet numerous times over the course of an entire term go over what to expect on the LSAT. You could pay less per session than if you only connect with your educator a few times.

The Memphis School System

Memphis, Tennessee, is in the southwestern corner of the state along the banks of the Mississippi River. It is the economic and cultural center of the region, and at about 315 square miles, it is also one of the most sprawling cities in the nation. The population of Memphis is about 650,000, though due to the size of the city, many areas feel much less crowded than similarly populous urban areas. All the schools in the city are under the direction of the Shelby County Schools district, which operates about 200 schools serving approximately 147,000 students. It is currently the largest school system in the state and one of the largest in the nation.

If you have begun to feel like your child isn’t thriving in their academic setting, a personal tutor may be able to help.

The student and I worked heavily on the "two vowels go walking" rule today. He had a hard time, but I think he finally got it.

Tutoring review by Melvin in Memphis, TN
This session was mostly focused on PreCalc. We looked at questions dealing with functions, determining domain range, zeros, y-intercepts, max and mins, etc. we also looked at a quiz the student had. Overall this session went well. We looked briefly through her notes on anatomy and physiology, and I gave her some advice on how to go about studying for it.

Tutoring review by Peter in Memphis, TN
First, we went over the Passage-Based Reading homework and the student did quite well with that; only missing 2 questions per each long passage. Then we covered topics in the Algebra packet like properties of exponents, translating words and phrases into algebraic equations, direct and inverse proportionality, inequalities, and solving equations. Finally, I asked her to do all the unfinished problems from the Algebra packet as well as a Writing section from her practice PSAT for next time.

Tutoring review by Alexandra in Memphis, TN
The student did a full length SAT Critical Reading practice section, and we reviewed the questions she answered incorrectly and strategies for answering those types of questions generally. The student was realistic about how much work/practice we could do in the time remaining for the test and fully engaged in our session. She was forthcoming in sharing her thinking about why she answered questions the way she did.

Tutoring review by Jordan in Memphis, TN
The student did great today. We went over tangent lines, the midpoint formula, and the distance formula. If she pays close attention to her calculations and practices, she should be in great shape for her test.

Tutoring review by Asma in Memphis, TN
During this session, we reviewed different topics. Among those were: solving quadratic equations, quadratic equation word problems, and evaluating quadratic equations given three points or a point and a vertex. We also reviewed some concepts such as how to simplify algebraic expressions and radicals. The student's skills in Algebra are good, but he needs to practice more problems. I'm emailing his mom extra problems. For next time, he will email me the chapters he wants to cover, along with the textbook title, so I can assign more problems to practice.
