San Jose is one of the largest cities in California, and was the second city incorporated in the state. This means that the almost 180-square-mile city is packed with historic buildings that not only have rich history behind them, but are great displays of the variety of architectural designs used throughout the centuries since it was settled. Most notable is its Spanish architecture, due to the city being founded and inhabited by the Spanish.

The large city is served by a large number of public school districts, including the San Jose Unified District, the Santa Clara Unified District, the Morgan Hill Unified District, and the Milpitas Unified District, to name just a few. A few of the prestigious high schools in the city include University Preparatory Academy Charter, KIPP San Jose Collegiate, and Lynbrook High. One way to potentially improve on that important exam is by connecting with a private San Jose, CA, tutor who has both in-home and online tutoring experience in instruction for test prep. There are 10 private high schools in the city, many with strict admissions exams.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Jeremy in San Jose, CA
Today, the student did 60 minutes of math work (a homework page plus review problems from her old quizzes).  For the last 30 minutes, we worked on the final needs of her state project--the Triorama!  We identified missing pieces of information that she wanted to print later that night.  I hope she did well during the presentation--she was excited!

Tutoring review by Rebecca in San Jose, CA
The student and I did review of both Algebra and Latin, working on specific questions/problems she had.  We got through all of her questions, and she seemed confident and prepared with the rest of material. It was really good that she had specific issues ready for me so we were able to spend enough time on each question to make sure she understood each specific problem as well as the more general concepts.

Tutoring review by Hallie in San Jose, CA
The student and I met today for the first time and reviewed Geometry, specifically the SAS, SSS, and ASA theorems.  We also began an outline for her history material.  This session only lasted an hour.  She is very smart and a pleasure to work with.

Tutoring review by Aasiya in San Jose, CA
We reviewed probability, doing problems involving replacing and not replacing objects; we did probability problems in her math book and worked on thinking about the probability of landing on the lines on a spinner (these would have a very small probability because of their narrowness). We discussed the dimensions of shapes: points (0), lines (1), flat shapes (2), objects (3).

Tutoring review by Rebekah in San Jose, CA
We reviewed the general concepts and strategies for test-taking during the first half of our session. We then focused on math, as this is where she indicated her greatest uncertainties lay. We worked primarily on balancing equations and grouping together like terms. She struggled a bit at first with the order of operations in an equation, but with practice she was able to follow the method precisely. Division involving negative numbers was confusing to her at first, but with repetition she also gained confidence in this area. Overall, it was a very successful first session. I enjoyed meeting and working with the student.

Tutoring review by Vina in San Jose, CA
Discussed and reviewed a practice test I had provided to the student in our last lesson, covering various mathematical concepts, ranging from geometry to algebra to word/text problems. Additional time was spent on discussing and aiding my student with areas that she is still struggling with, such as complex fractions and finding LCDs, LCMs and mastering the rules of operations and mathematical signs
