The decision to enlist outside help when it comes to your student’s education is not one to be taken lightly. We understand the reservations you may have about spending your time and money on outside educational resources you are unfamiliar with, but that is exactly why Varsity Tutors was founded: to create a trustworthy, reliable, high-quality private tutoring service option to help New York City students and their families achieve academic success.

The One-on-One Approach

We know every individual student learns differently, which is why we stay away from the common “one size fits all” tactic used by many group prep courses. Our NY educational directors work with you from the very beginning to identify what kind of learner your student is, where their academic strengths and weaknesses lie, what kind of instructor they learn best from, and so on. We believe that paying attention to these kinds of details is precisely what sets private tutoring apart from the multitude of other test prep options out there. At Varsity Tutors, your student is personally paired with one of our brilliant tutors in the New York City area – a private tutor specifically chosen by our directors who they know will be a great fit for your student. This hand-picked tutor will develop a customized curriculum for your child based on the specific end goals at hand. Unlike in a classroom setting, your child’s lesson plan will not move ahead until he or she fully understands the preceding material. Our individualized approach ensures your student is getting the attention they deserve as they work to meet their learning goals.

Tutors With Equally Impressive Grades and Personalities

From our perspective, it is not enough for our tutors to simply hold remarkable test scores – tutors must be personable and highly effective at communicating material in an easy-to-understand manner. We have turned away tutor applicants with perfect test scores because they were not extraordinary teachers. When our directors search for the perfect New York City tutor to work with your student, you can be assured that they are choosing from a pool of exceptional instructors who have been thoroughly screened. We believe it is equally important for a tutor to serve as a mentor to the student, as well as a teacher. Our students not only receive educational support from their tutor to ensure they are making progress in their learning, they also receive emotional support to keep them motivated and encouraged throughout the process. It can be easy for students to lose determination and feel the need to give up when faced with academic frustration; that is why we are so careful about the tutors we select in order to ensure they are the right types of people capable of keeping your student on track.
