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

The price of meeting with a private teacher in Tampa depends on several variables, including how often you intend to meet your instructor, what you would like to study, where you live, and more. For instance, tutoring for a student learning about photosynthesis at Plant High School would be a different price than tutoring for a student studying the metric system at MacFarlane Park Magnet School.

Similarly, you may pay a different rate if you maintain a set schedule with your instructor than if you do not.

Who you study with may also affect what you pay. Reviewing in a 1-on-1 learning environment allows your instructor to concentrate on your unique areas of opportunity to enhance your study efficacy. Alternatively, working with some of your classmates can be a great way to expose yourself to new ideas and perspectives. Varsity Tutors also provides live group classes as an affordable supplement to any tutoring plan.

Furthermore, studying with a Tampa tutor can benefit students of all ages and ability levels. If you or your student are falling behind your peers, your instructor can help you identify why you're struggling and come up with a plan to address it. If you're doing great in school, your tutor can introduce more advanced concepts to keep learning stimulating. Contact Varsity Tutors today to learn more about private instruction including current rates in your area.

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

Finding a tutor in Tampa means making sure that your instructor is knowledgeable of everything you wish to review, understands how to design lesson plans, and can meet when you are available. It can be tough to find an instructor who offers all three qualities, so why not take a break while the Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors take care of all of the heavy lifting?

We will even find you an academic coach you can study alongside without ever leaving the comfort of home. Our Live Learning Platform is accessible on the vast majority of computers and mobile devices, allowing you to meet your instructor wherever you like.

A tutor can also help you homeschool your kids. If that sounds like a bit much, you should consider all of the help an instructor can provide.

For example, our adaptive assessments can help you measure your student's progress toward the next grade level. We're confident that you will be pleased by the value a tutor can add to the homeschooling equation.

Are the tutors in Tampa subject to an assessment process?

Varsity Tutors uses one of the most comprehensive assessment processes in the industry to make sure that the tutor in Tampa we refer to you is among the best in the area. We begin by verifying each candidate's core attributes, like their academic expertise and communication skills.

We also verify every prospective instructor's availability so there are no surprises when you go to schedule a session. We look for patient instructors who know that students may not grasp difficult concepts right away. If you need your instructor to present material differently before it clicks, that's absolutely fine. We also search for instructors who have great personalities. If you can forge a meaningful rapport with your instructor, you may find their lessons more effective than you would otherwise. Most importantly, we value enthusiastic instructors who can spread their love of learning to students like you.

Tutoring provides tremendous value to all students, and there is no better way to find an instructor than Varsity Tutors. If you are ready to find out how a private teacher in Tampa could help you reach for your or your student's educational goals, reach out to our Educational Directors by phone or online to get started. We can't wait to hear from you!

The Syracuse School System

The Syracuse City School District serves about 22,000 students in 34 different public schools, and the nearby universities are an excellent source of inspiration to local students. No matter the size of the school district, or the resources it has to offer, some students will need a little extra help. For some, this means extra time with a tutor to catch up with their lessons when they begin struggling with new concepts. For others, it means finding a private tutor who can offer more challenging and customized curriculum to help keep a gifted student engaged in the learning process. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor to help meet your child’s academic needs.

Syracuse Test Scores

A professional tutor can help your child reach their academic goals by helping them study for their upcoming exams. In addition to nationally available exams such as the ACT and SAT, New York students face several other standardized exams throughout their academic career. In grades three through eight, students are given grade-level specific exams to gauge their competency in math and language arts. In grades four and eight, students take an exam in science, and in grades five and eight, they take social studies exams.

Once students move on to high school, they must face Regents exams, which are among the most challenging in the nation. Are you curious about how well students in Syracuse high schools are doing? Below you can get an idea of how the top schools in Syracuse rank in New York.

One of the most significant problems facing public education is the number of students in each class. Even class sizes that are deemed to be small still have a dozen or more students. Class sizes make it difficult for individualized instruction to occur. One of the primary benefits of private tutoring is the opportunity for your child to work with someone who has the time to truly get to know them, their learning style, and their academic strengths and weaknesses.

We have compiled the teacher to student ratios of the largest schools in the Syracuse area to give you an idea of how crowded your child’s classrooms may be.

Syracuse Student-to-Teacher Ratios

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Jonathan in Syracuse, NY
Today we covered mostly SAT factoring problems. We spent a good deal of time talking about testing strategy. The student is fast enough that he can check his answers with his extra time. So in addition to practice problems, we talked about how he can confirm his answers with his extra time. Also, we spoke about very difficult problems which may be saved until the end, or skipped completely if he finds uncovering errors is a better use of his time to maximize his score. I stressed to him the importance of practice tests and mimicking the actual test as much as possible. By doing even small sections, we should start to identify patterns that will help us evaluate the best strategies and where to concentrate our efforts to help him get the best score come test day. In the next lesson we will work on some probability, some compounding interest, a bit more factoring review, and exponents and radicals.

Tutoring review by Laura in Syracuse, NY
We discussed some strategies for grammar and writing sections and he did a test essay. We then graded his essay and talked about ways to improve (giving more specific and detailed examples, being a bit more careful with watching spelling and grammar). For homework the student is going to complete a whole test that I will send him by this evening. I do not require that he completes a whole test at once but he can take sections over the week. He understands that he will probably take 2 to 3 sections every day and that will result in him only having to work on the test for about three or four days of the week. I will send him a reminder on Sunday to work on these sections. Finally, all sections of the test should be timed as if he were taking the test on the day. He will grade them and then make a list of concepts we need to cover in the next meeting.

Tutoring review by Daniel in Syracuse, NY
The student's homework focused on solving equations that use absolute values. I was a little concerned because he didn't know how absolute values work. I was able to show him a method for solving absolute values, but he probably still needs more time to really understand the concept of absolute values and how they work. I was very encouraged that he is getting better at solving basic equations on his own. After getting warmed up he was able to solve many of the equations on his own. Each week he seems to be more confident, and quicker at solving equations, and he makes fewer mistakes.

The student worked on completing homework. She then spent the rest of the session writing a personal narrative using an organizational tool to brainstorm her ideas. She worked on adding details and transitional words at the beginning of the sentences.
