Phoenix Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Phoenix?

The price of tutoring for students in Phoenix relies on a variety of factors. The complexity of the subject matter, for example, may require a different level of experience in the paired tutor.

Of greater influence is the number of sessions you require, as a larger overall number of sessions may yield a lower rate per session. For instance, a parent seeking a semester's worth of ACT test prep for their Paradise Valley High School might pay a lower price per session than a college student needing a couple of weeks' worth of cramming for an advanced biomedical engineering course final exam. Our Educational Directors can provide more clarification.

Which tutoring subjects does Varsity Tutors offer for students in Phoenix?

Finding a tutor for students in Phoenix that can provide excellent guidance on the subjects most relevant to you doesn't need to be a challenge. We will connect you with experts on everything from preparing for the LSAT to basic math and science skills.

But tutoring isn't just for those who are in school. Maybe you're seeking your PMP. Maybe you're hoping to improve your writing skills in a foreign language for an upcoming job relocation. However you might be trying to improve yourself, we will set you up with a highly qualified tutor who can guide you on your educational journey using teaching techniques that best support your learning style.

Why choose Varsity Tutors for tutoring in Phoenix?

Tutoring for students in Phoenix offers a number of benefits. One such advantage is that it provides 1-on-1 time with a subject matter expert for things like reading and science classes, affording the opportunity to ask as many detailed questions as you need to from someone who knows the topic inside and out.

That sort of support isn't always an option working with a teacher in a classroom setting. This can also offer a valuable learning opportunity as the tutor works with the student on individual assignments. With a math lesson, for instance, the tutor can go through problems step-by-step, reinforcing correct approaches and correcting mistakes midstream, ultimately preventing missteps from becoming bad habits over time.

We understand that finding the right resources to help you or your student with your efforts to improve your understanding of a topic can be a challenge. There are a great many options out there, and sifting through them can be daunting. Between study guides, preparation classes, and any number of online resources, the headaches can pile up fast.

That's where we come in. Our Educational Directors will take the time to better understand your needs and concerns. From there, they will work to match you with the right tutor for you, addressing any questions you might have along the way.

There's no reason to wait! Contact Varsity Tutors online today to get started with a tutor for students in Phoenix.

The Phoenix School System

Phoenix has more than 300 public schools in 30 school districts, along with nearly 200 private and charter schools. The way the schools are designated and organized is a bit more complicated in the Phoenix area than in most other school districts. It is the legacy of rapid city expansion into other incorporated areas. Many of the existing schools were already in place before they became part of Phoenix. Because of this, some school districts only serve grades K-8 while others only serve grades 9-12, and still others have schools in grades K-12. It can be challenging for parents to discern which school their child will be directed to as he or she advances through the system, and even more difficult to determine what placement would be most beneficial.

No matter which school your child is in, online or in-home tutoring could help him or her maximize academic potential. Private tutors in the Phoenix area can assist students in grades K-12 with any coursework they find challenging and can also help with preparation for exams such as the ISEE, ACT, SAT, AzMERIT, and AIMS Science.

Here's a breakdown of AzMerit proficiency rates in the city. How does your student measure up?

Phoenix Test Scores

The AzMERIT is the statewide achievement test for students in Arizona schools. It assesses reading, writing, and mathematical skills for students in the third grade and above each spring. While students are not required to pass an AzMERIT for graduation, they are required to pass a civics exam prior to graduation. The AIMS Science exam is given to students in grades 4, 8, and in high school in order to ensure students meet federal requirements for science educational gains.

Varsity Tutors can help you find a Phoenix tutor who explains course and exam content to students, while also helping them refine their test-taking skills. If you have a student who is eager to attend one of the best schools in the city, you may want to consider one of the following options:

An experienced private tutor can work with a student to get prepared for entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT. A tutor can also help students hone their writing skills so they make the best impressions with their admissions essays. Tutors work with students in a one-on-one environment, as opposed to busy classrooms where students may not get the attention they need. Look at these student-teacher ratios for Phoenix schools:

Recent Phoenix Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Joe in Phoenix, AZ
The student was intelligent, but he tends to make simple mistakes in some areas where he should be stronger. For instance, he would often answer correctly without much effort, but then I'd look at the answer he put previously and notice that he either guessed incorrectly or settled upon an answer that was good but not good enough (typical in reading comprehension questions). I suspect this is because he has only recently begun to work on these tests. As he practices more, he'll be able to work through 120 questions without getting burned out. Also, I gave him strategies to help to make it less cumbersome.

Tutoring review by Mathew in Phoenix, AZ
During the student's last session, we went through four test sections -- two reading, one math, and one writing -- and then concluded by recapping some of the strategies we have worked on throughout our two months of lessons. The student stands well-situated on his upcoming SAT(s). His math is very close to perfect and little work remains to be done there. Reading and Writing are also very, very strong.

Tutoring review by Isabella in Phoenix, AZ
The student and I talked about food, cooking, and restaurant culture in New York. We also talked some more about his various professions of interest. During the last half hour, we translated into Spanish a poem that he wrote recently, and discussed the different choices of words we had in translating.

Tutoring review by Elizabeth in Phoenix, AZ
The student and I talked through her strengths and weaknesses on the assessment test and what work she'd already done. She is very bright and motivated, and already in very strong shape for the test. We will focus on reading comprehension and scrambled paragraphs next.

Tutoring review by Melanie in Phoenix, AZ
We began our session by reviewing the science portion of the test about data representation. The student practiced on two items (a botany example and mortality rates) graphs and tables. He did quite well on both. He then took the mathematics (timed) portion of the test. We finished with a brief online practice of grammar. Great session and great student!!

Tutoring review by Damian in Phoenix, AZ
Covered a math section from the review book, including three different advanced geometry problems, one involving trig (but allowing for shortcut special right triangles) on a map. The special right triangles is not something we've gone over, so this was very productive. We moved on to an English section, only one rhetorical skills question wrong, the rest were miscellaneous grammar questions, mostly commas. Very impressed with student's progress on English. Finished up with an essay, which went very well.
