Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

All Pittsburgh tutors possess the highest qualifications. In addition to completing a rigorous interview process, tutors in Pittsburgh, PA must pass a background check and have academic credentials verified. An expert director will help you find the best tutor from this elite group; we stand behind these matches and even offer 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.

Is meeting with a private tutor in Plano affordable?

The cost of meeting with a private tutor in Plano is variable according to your or your student's specific needs, but it may be more affordable than you expect. For instance, tutoring for a student learning how to read at Beverly Elementary School would be a different price than tutoring for a Liberty High School student preparing for their STAAR in Biology I.

Similarly, you may be charged a different rate if you set up a regular meeting schedule with your instructor as opposed to reviewing on an as-needed basis. Some of the other factors that can affect what you pay include where you live, the size of your study group, and so on.

Many instructors offer students a choice between private and group tutoring sessions. Private meetings allow you to focus exclusively on your unique areas of opportunity, while group sessions allow you to consider the tips and tricks shared by your peers as well as your Plano tutor. Both are proven study aids, and Varsity Tutors provides small group courses as a cost-effective supplement to any tutoring plan.

While it's self-explanatory how a tutor can help students who are falling behind their peers, high-achievers can also get a lot out of private instruction. For example, your instructor can introduce fresh concepts more rapidly to keep you engaged in the learning process. Please contact Varsity Tutors directly to learn more about private tutoring, including pricing information for the services you are interested in.

Can I get help finding a private tutor in Plano?

If you tried to find a qualified tutor in Plano without our support, you would be solely responsible for verifying that your instructor possessed an extensive knowledge base, excellent communication skills, and scheduling flexibility. It's a lot of work that many busy people simply lack the free time to take on.

Thankfully, the expert Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors will find you a great instructor who suits your scheduling and academic needs in as little as 24 hours.

Our secret is a network consisting of over 40,000 certified tutors, allowing us to accommodate any special requests you have with ease. If your child hesitates to ask for help in front of their friends, we'll refer you to a tutor who can encourage questions. If your notebook explodes with loose papers every time you open it, we'll find you a tutor who can help you organize your materials. Simply tell us what you're looking for and we'll turn it into a reality.

We will even find you a private teacher in Plano who you can study alongside without ever leaving the comfort of home. Our Live Learning Platform is a virtual classroom accessible on most computers and mobile devices, so you can meet your instructor anywhere with a stable internet connection. It also includes powerful features like video chat capabilities and a shared document editor to facilitate the same type of collaborative learning environment you could get in a traditional classroom. Most importantly, every session is recorded automatically so you can go back for a refresher on exponents or another topic at your leisure. Who knew that tutoring could be so convenient?

What are the options for tutoring offered in Plano?

Our database includes experts in over 3,000 subject areas, so we will be able to find you a tutor in Plano for virtually any topic imaginable. If you are struggling with trigonometry at Jasper High School, we'll connect you with a tutor who can provide an in-depth tutorial on how to manipulate your graphing calculator.

If you're learning about microeconomics at a local educational institution such as Southern Methodist University, we'll match you with an instructor who can use your personal budget to illustrate economic theories.

Furthermore, we will find you a Plano tutor who can help you with your standardized test prep. If you are taking a popular exam such as the SAT, GRE, GMAT, or MCAT, your instructor can administer practice tests under realistic conditions to help you identify your strengths and areas of opportunity. We will also find you a tutor for professional certification tests such as the SIE or PMP, so you shouldn't assume that we can only find you support for the most popular assessments.

We will even find you a tutor who can help you homeschool your children. You may not think you need a professional instructor's help with that endeavor, but a tutor can provide invaluable support. For example, your instructor can review your lesson plans and offer helpful feedback before you head into the classroom. Signing up today also grants you access to our Learning Lab: a collection of self-study resources such as adaptive assessments and informational videos to help you and your student make the most of homeschooling. You could try to homeschool alone, but wouldn't you prefer to have an expert's guidance every step of the way?

How are the tutors in Plano chosen?

Varsity Tutors leverages one of the most extensive screening processes in the industry, so you can trust that the tutor in Plano we find for you will be among the best in the area. We begin by authenticating each candidate's expertise in every subject they're interested in tutoring, so you can trust all of the information you receive.

We also double-check every candidate's availability to ensure that there are no unwelcome surprises when students try to schedule a session.

After that, we start considering intangible qualities that you probably wouldn't even realize you need. For instance, we look for instructors who have a knack for identifying the root cause of any learning obstacles so that they can design lesson plans to address it. We also search for instructors who feel comfortable using more than one teaching methodology, enabling them to teach to their pupil's preferred learning style. Most importantly, we value passion throughout our entire vetting process because there is no substitute for a tutor who is truly committed to helping students pursue their educational goals.

If you are ready to see how a private teacher in Plano could help you or your student, contact our friendly Educational Directors today! Varsity Tutors would be happy to answer any lingering questions you may have.

Tutoring review by Rhodes in Pittsburgh, PA
Today, we went over what the student was working on for the past week, including the homework that I issued him. We touched on the unit circle, continuity, differentiability, what he got wrong on the last quiz, and special rules for limits. We will meet again on Wednesday.

Tutoring review by Anthony in Pittsburgh, PA
The student is gaining a good stride in solving problems now, he can readily solve medium level questions without much aid.  Today we went over all of chapter 5, covering gas dynamics, gas laws and their applications, kinetic molecular gas theory and paying special attention to circumstances where their postulates collapse. We also began chapter 6 of thermochemistry. We covered endothermic and exothermic reactions, and general systematic energy questions involving heat and work.  Redox reactions were a concern for him but he seems to know the material well, so he should do fine on a test.

Tutoring review by Bethany in Pittsburgh, PA
First, we checked over his retake homework packet.  He had to complete this to retake his test grade in math.  Most questions needed to be solved using multi-step.  We discussed some strategies that could help with those types of problems.  Additionally, we worked on a difficult math problem that is used at the end of every test.  Then, we prepared for his English quiz.  They are diagraming sentences.   I gave him a few examples and we worked through how to diagram each one.

Tutoring review by Michaela in Pittsburgh, PA
The student is really impressed me with her progress. For the most part, she's remembering the concepts well, but once in a while she still forgets or gets bogged down in the simple algebra. She's significantly improved with the reading, however, after a few slight adjustments with the way she approaches the passages. Her grammar is also stellar. We'll continue to focus on math for the next session, with a broad review for the final.
