Experienced Help In Math, Reading, and Writing

First grade is often the first experience children have with formal classroom learning, and for some kids, learning in a classroom environment can be challenging. Others thrive in a busy classroom.

Either way, working with a 1st grade tutor allows your student the opportunity to learn in a one-on-one setting from someone with proven expertise in elementary-age education. Varsity Tutors focuses on finding your student a tutor with the right experience for your student's needs, whether they need to increase their number skills in math or want to delve into reading more advanced books.

Improve Your 1st Grader's Levels With A Tutor

Tutoring is an effective way to boost your student's academic growth. In fact, 8 out of 10 students who are tutored show an increase in grades and scores.

Receiving undivided attention from a dedicated educator can help your student with the skills they need to know, from math to reading and writing. If, for example, your child struggles to write the alphabet legibly, their 1st grade tutoring sessions can focus on handwriting skills. Strong students benefit from tutoring too. If you're looking for 1st grade tutoring to move your math whiz ahead of the class, we will find you a private instructor with the ability to teach your student in a way that meshes with their learning style.

How much does a tutor for a 1st grader cost?

The cost for 1st grade tutoring depends on a variety of factors, like how often your child meets with their tutor and the material to be covered. For instance, comprehensive weekly sessions with a private instructor all year long as opposed to meeting once a month to work through a few sticky math topics would be charged differently.

You could also choose to get a group of kids together for tutoring, which helps to reduce the price. The best way to get an accurate idea of what you might pay is to click "Get Started" or give us a call.

How can I homeschool my 1st grader?

While you could choose to homeschool on your own, 1st grade is a critical stage in your child's academic career. Teaching the basics might seem simple - after all, it's elementary! - but giving your student the opportunity to work with a 1st grade tutor can help them lay a solid foundation.

Varsity Tutors will find you a private tutor who knows how to assess your child's academic strengths and weaknesses in order to build customized lesson plans. Through creative, modern techniques, a tutor can provide or enhance your student's homeschooling experience.

Is a tutor worth it for a 1st grader?

Children of all ages can benefit from tutoring, but it's especially helpful for elementary-age students. It's essential for 1st graders to get a solid grasp on the basics they'll learn during the school year.

Working with a tutor helps students gain proficiency in the foundational skills they'll need to move forward successfully. Plus, our Live Learning Platform makes scheduling sessions a cinch, and you and your student can return to review recordings of previous sessions at any time. Get in touch with Varsity Tutors today by phone or by clicking "Get Started."

How can a 1st Grade tutor help your child?

The recent transition in academia toward an achievement-based system of evaluation, as well as its emphasis on the rapid development and mastery of skills, can impose unnecessary pressures on students during their early years of schooling. If your child is struggling to legibly write the alphabet on a piece of paper, master the conceptual basis of increasing and decreasing numerical values, phonetically sound out the words in a short story, or if he or she is simply frustrated with the goal-oriented and impersonal structure of the classroom environment, he or she may benefit from the one-on-one assistance of a private tutor.

First-grade tutoring is designed to enhance and supplement your child's academic skill set, while also fostering an appreciation and enjoyment for academia that can help propel him or her to higher learning. A skilled and experienced tutor can help devise ways to help your child learn to love learning. Teaching your child to love learning at an early age sets them up with a foundation that will serve them well in the future.

Online 1st Grade Tutoring review by Tanya
The student and I practiced reading and writing. She has a high level of comprehension. Her writing is good when she is focused and takes her time. I have her practice reading aloud. I also read aloud so I can stop and ask low and high level questions (Bloom's Taxonomy). She works very hard. We will practice time and money next week as requested by her mom.

Today did a game of concentration with yesterday's sight words and him was able to focus well for 20 minutes!! We then worked on the "F" letter writing page in his work book. He then did a really good job of being engaged with eye contact with me talking about his camp and Pokemon.

Today we worked on reading and identifying sight words. We also worked on recognizing time and counting by 5's using an analog clock. More than anything, we are building our rapport so that we can work well together during future sessions!
