Private Tutoring For Your 6th Grader

Now is the perfect time to get your student started with a 6th grade tutor. A private instructor can help them make more efficient progress towards their academic potential.

Tutoring is available for subjects like math, reading, writing, science, and virtually all others your student may be learning about in school. 6th grade tutoring can bridge the gap between the instruction your student is getting in the classroom and the instruction they need. Their educator can provide them with targeted guidance and feedback exactly where they need it most. Keep reading to learn more.

Experienced Help In All Subjects For 6th Graders

Finding a skilled tutor on your own can be challenging. Instead, let Varsity Tutors do the hard work for you.

We've already taken the time to identify the top instructors across the country. When you contact us, we'll provide you with an individualized list of tutoring options that are an excellent fit for your student's unique needs. We look for instructors who have proven subject matter expertise and experience teaching students at the 6th grade level. This creates an excellent learning opportunity for your student to help them great ready for an important exam, develop their general skills and knowledge, or complete a challenging assignment.

Improve Your 6th Grader's Levels With A Tutor

Students are often assigned levels in math and reading that correspond to the grade-level equivalent of their knowledge. If your student is operating below their grade level, a 6th grade tutor can help them solve the issue.

Your student's instructor can identify the specific challenges they've been having with the relevant material. Then, they can address those problem areas through targeted lessons. This can provide your student with the support they need to meet and even exceed their grade-level thresholds. It's another example of how beneficial it can be for them to work with a tutor.

How much does a tutor for a 6th grader cost?

The cost of 6th grade tutoring can vary based on the specific options you select. For example, if your student has an important exam approaching, you may want them to meet with their instructor more often.

Similarly, your charges could be influenced by whether you prefer group learning or one-on-one tutoring opportunities for your student. Varsity Tutors works hard to make tutoring a realistic academic supplement for parents of all budgets. Reach out to us directly to receive more specific pricing information. We'll tell you more about your options and will work to find you one that meets your needs.

How can I homeschool my 6th grader?

Tutoring can be an excellent addition to homeschooling. It's an especially valuable academic supplement for subjects that your student would benefit from studying with an expert.

It also exposes your student to new teaching methods, ideas, and challenges that can enhance their overall academic experience. Another excellent option for homeschooled students is our group classes. These provide a simulated classroom learning experience, which your student can enjoy from the comfort of home. We have many different plans to choose from. We'll tell you about which we think would be best for your student when you contact us.

Is a tutor worth it for a 6th grader?

Signing your student up to meet with a 6th grade tutor is absolutely worth it. 6th grade is when your student solidifies what they've learned throughout elementary school.

It's also when they prepare themselves to take on the increased responsibilities of middle school. Tutoring can support your student as they work towards these goals. Their instructor can create a customized lesson plan for them that's specifically targeted with their growth in mind. This kind of one-on-one academic assistance could be just what your student needs to unlock more of their potential. Reach out to Varsity Tutors to get them started.

How can 6th Grade tutoring help your child?

For many students, sixth grade marks the transition from elementary school to middle school. This shift may also be the first time your child has changed schools, making the process difficult both academically and developmentally. New classrooms, teachers, peers, and expectations can quickly generate the perception of a foreign atmosphere. Resources and assistance that may have been readily available in elementary classes may be reduced or absent in the new, challenging middle school environment. The new schedule in middle school may require that your student shift between teachers for different subjects and periods, giving him or her little sense of the homeroom connection central to elementary education. If your child is struggling with the jump in academic intensity and simultaneous developmental shifts occurring during this year, a sixth-grade tutor may be able to help.

The introduction of multiple teachers and classrooms can also lead to difficulties due to a lack of organizational skills. Being organized may not have been much of an issue in elementary school, but the complexity of new classes, schedules, and teachers make organization extremely important. A private tutor can give your child helpful tips on how to get and stay organized, which is a skill that will help them throughout their academic career and beyond.

The student and I worked on studying for an upcoming science exam (earth science). And we completed her math homework on statistics and graphing. She will begin reading the book "Number the Stars" to catch up on the work she missed while being absent from school.

The student and I worked on math and decided to focus on word problems, since he has some trouble converting language into equations. Second hour with his little sister was also math, since she's working through a math book her teacher recommended.

The student is finishing up school and had summer math problems to review. She did well on the majority of questions. We will be practicing these more over the summer. We also reviewed her summer science experiment project and social studies/ELA project; I explained some scientific definitions and we organized how she can structure her writing responses.

Online 6th Grade Tutoring review by John
We did math and reading comprehension problems from the SSAT review book in order to diagnose and teach the student. I gave him a copy of the test we used so he could work some problems during the week before our next session if he so desired. He basically understands factoring, multiplication, division, and basic geometry. His reading comprehension is good.

Online 6th Grade Tutoring review by Jessica
I worked with the first student on force, motion, and energy. We spent most of the time talking about potential and kinetic energy as well as balanced and unbalanced forces on an object. He has a good understanding of how motion and energy work. During our math review, we worked on arithmetic with decimals. He did very well on addition, subtraction, and multiplication but struggled a little with division as he had not learned it yet. The second student and I also talked about force, motion, and energy. She was able to list all of the types of energy and to talk about examples of each. We mainly talked about mechanical energy and the details of what happens when an object is in motion. For math, we worked with decimals doing addition, subtraction, and multiplication. She was very good at all of it but needed some guidance with multiplication. She did excellent with estimating.
