Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

We require the most rigorous qualifications of Milwaukee tutors, in addition to a background check. Only a tiny fraction of those candidates who apply ultimately make it through our demanding interview process. From this elite group, an expert director will help you find the best tutor to meet your individual needs – and we stand behind your satisfaction with our money-back guarantee.

Personalized lessons help you learn best in an environment where you're comfortable, on your own schedule, both in-home or online.

What is the cost of studying with a private tutor in Milwaukee?

The price of meeting with a qualified Milwaukee tutor depends on several different variables, including what you'd like to review, how often you want to meet your instructor, your physical location, and so on. For instance, a student focusing on Wisconsin state history at a grammar school such as Swanson Elementary School may pay a different rate for tutoring than an undergrad reviewing Japanese history at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.

Similarly, you may be charged differently if you set up a regular schedule with your instructor than if you did not.

Who you study alongside can also influence the price you pay. Many instructors offer students a choice of one-on-one sessions where they can concentrate on their unique areas of opportunity and group sessions where students can study with friends and classmates. Both arrangements are proven educational tools, and Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a small group class as an affordable supplement to either one.

Tutoring is also beneficial regardless of a student's performance in the classroom. If you or your student are falling behind your peers, your Milwaukee tutor can slow things down and help you catch up. If you're doing well in class, your instructor can introduce you to more challenging concepts to keep you engaged in your education. If you have any further questions regarding private instruction or what it may cost, please contact one of our friendly Educational Directors for more info.

Are there resources that can help me locate a private tutor in Milwaukee?

If you attempted to locate a tutor in Milwaukee by yourself, you would be solely responsible for verifying that every prospective candidate could offer the knowledge base, teaching skills, and scheduling flexibility you're on the hunt for. Why take on all of that work when Varsity Tutors will refer you to a great instructor in as little as 24 hours?

Our network includes more than 40,000 independent tutors, enabling us to quickly find a strong fit for students of all ages.

If you have rarely needed to sit down and study in the past, we'll find you a tutor who can help you improve your study skills. If you aren't sure why you are struggling with a particular concept, we'll match you with a tutor in Milwaukee who can help you identify the root cause of your learning obstacles.

We will even connect you with a tutor who you can review alongside from the comfort of home. Our exclusive Live Learning Platform is a mobile-friendly virtual classroom accessible on most computers and internet-enabled devices, allowing you to choose your own learning environment. If you've never studied remotely before, our platform offers a multitude of features to improve your experience. For example, your instructor can use the included virtual whiteboard to make it easier for you to take notes on the causes of the American Revolution or how to find the hypotenuse of a right triangle. Every session is also recorded automatically for your convenience.

Are there different kinds of tutoring available in Milwaukee?

Our network of private tutors includes experts in more than 3,000 different fields, so we will be able to set you up with a tutor in Milwaukee who meets your expectations. If you are studying rational expressions at West High School, your instructor can point out real-world use cases to help you understand why you're studying them.

If you have questions about a physics lab you performed in class, your tutor can answer them before an error becomes a significant learning obstacle.

A private tutor can also help you prepare for any important examinations you have coming up. If you are finishing up at a local school such as Marquette University High School, your instructor can help you decide between the ACT and SAT and then administer sample questions to help you understand which concepts to focus on. We will also find you professional support for the LSAT, MCAT, GRE, GMAT, and hundreds of professional cert exams. If you want to study it, we will find you a knowledgeable tutor to help you do so.

A private teacher in Milwaukee can even help you homeschool your children. A tutor can show you how to grade assignments objectively so your student can learn from any mistakes. Signing up today also grants you access to our Learning Lab, a collection of resources such as instructional videos and computer-based assessments to help you monitor your student's progress. Why would you want to homeschool on your own when a private tutor can make it both easier and more effective?

Are the tutors in Milwaukee subject to an assessment process?

Some of our competitors aren't that vigilant about who they will call a tutor in Milwaukee, so you don't know exactly what you're getting. In contrast, Varsity Tutors uses an extensive vetting process to ensure that we only match students like you with top-notch instructors capable of meeting your needs.

We start by verifying each candidate's academic credentials, so you can trust that all of the information you're receiving is accurate and up-to-date. We also verify each candidate's availability, so you don't have to think twice about scheduling each session. We even look at a variety of intangible qualities that differentiate good tutoring experiences from fantastic ones. For example, we look for instructors who are knowledgeable of a variety of teaching techniques, helping them adjust their approach to each student's individual needs. After all, an auditory learner could get a lot out of a lecture on Keynesian economics, but a visual learner could get much more out of infographics illustrating what it all means.

Our Educational Directors are standing by to find you a great private teacher in Milwaukee, but it's up to you to get the process started. Contact us online or by phone to learn more about how private tutoring could help you or your student pursue academic excellence! You'll be glad you did.

The Milwaukee School System

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the largest city in the state and one of the biggest in the Midwest with a population of about 595,000. It is the main economic and cultural center of the larger metropolitan area, which has a population of more than 2 million. The nearly 90,000 students attend one of 300 schools that are part of the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) district.

In large school districts, it can be challenging for parents to know where to turn for help when their child faces academic struggles. Varsity Tutors works with parents to help them connect with highly qualified personal tutors with expertise in a wide range of subject areas. No matter what your child’s age or learning needs, a Milwaukee tutor is waiting to help your child reach their learning potential. Here's a breakdown of assessment scores in some of the top schools in Milwaukee. How does your student compare?

Milwaukee Test Scores

Milwaukee high school students are expected to prepare for nationally recognized exams such as the ACT or SAT. However, they are also required to achieve a passing score on a variety of other assessments throughout their academic careers as part of the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS). This comprehensive system includes the Wisconsin Forward Exam and Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) programs and tests on language arts, mathematics, science and social studies intermittently between grades three and eleven.

Many parents initially seek the services of a personal tutor when high stakes standardized exams are looming on the horizon. However, private tutors can be utilized long before and after these exams. Experienced tutors can help your child improve their grades throughout their academic career, and they can also help fuel interest in subject areas that may not be accessible in most public schools. Perhaps your child is doing well in math and science but would like to learn more about applying those skills to robotics or astronomy. With the help of a personal tutor, your child’s interest and imagination are the only limits to their learning potential.

Unfortunately, even the most highly ranked high schools in Milwaukee are not part of the top 50 for the state of Wisconsin. In the chart below, you can see which Milwaukee high schools are leading the city and how they compare to other high schools in the state.

Milwaukee High School Rankings

High School Milwaukee Ranking State Ranking AP Pass Rate
Rufus King International School 1 61 N/A

MacDowell Montessori School 7 N/A N/A
Milwaukee High School of the Arts 8 N/A 41%
Riverside High School 9 N/A 19%
Carmen High School of Science & Technology 10 N/A 17%

Even for a large school district, some of the student-to-teacher ratios for the largest schools are on the high side. Fortunately, many of these schools still have classes with fewer than twenty students. Below you can see the results of the ten largest high schools in the area.

Milwaukee Student-to-Teacher Ratios

Hamilton High School has a 19 1 student-teacher ratio.

Riverside High School has a 19 1 student-teacher ratio.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Rudy in Milwaukee, WI
In today's session, the student and I focused on physics. We continued the chapter on resistors and semiconductors.  We reviewed how circuits were modeled and how they were manipulated. The student said that his teacher might give a test on Friday, so we also reviewed the formulas that we covered in the chapter.

Tutoring review by Ramya in Milwaukee, WI
The student and I reviewed the Activity Series of Elements and applied them to Single Replacement reactions. We practiced multiple problems.  He seemed to have a pretty good understanding of the material after completing the problems.

Tutoring review by Kevin in Milwaukee, WI
The student and I discussed how to tell if two triangles were congruent. After I explained the rules for determining this, we worked through some of his geometry homework problems together.  Once we were finished with his geometry, we started to work on some algebra concepts. The algebra we focused on included writing the equation of a line in different forms.

Tutoring review by Gabrielle in Milwaukee, WI
The student had done work on English and Reading on her own.  Her English score, from what she had worked on by herself, was at about a 26, so we decided that she should continue individual study on that.  For her Reading, she completed two sections.  For the first, I had her time herself just to see how long a passage would take and then decrease her time by a minute for each passage.  For the second, she tried to get it all done in time.  Her score has gone up and is hovering in the 20-23 range.  With more practice and timing she should be able to solidly earn at least a 21 every time.  We spent time covering Science. She has a lot of Science to cover on her own before we meet again.  With Math, I am giving her problems specific to the concepts we have covered rather than general problems in hopes that she will at least be able to solidly learn those concepts.

Tutoring review by Carolyn in Milwaukee, WI
We went through her homework on combinations, then did several practice problems.  She was struggling with how to set up the problems, but we went over it until she felt more comfortable.  We also talked about strategies for using the calculator.

Tutoring review by Noor in Milwaukee, WI
Worked with the student on bettering his writing through reviewing his past mistakes and having him correct them. I also had him summarize a few chapters of a book he is reading. Overall, I believe he is improving quite a bit in his writing, as is evident from his grades in school.
