What year in?

I want to thank VT for connecting me with my English tutor. I'm a 49 yr old that enrolled back in college to complete my degree and I was having the most difficult time meeting the demands of my writing assignments. But fortunately, I was matched with an educator that has made what seemed hopeless in my efforts to write academic papers effectively a piece of cake.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

Houston English Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors can connect you with experienced Houston English tutors if your child needs extra help with their English lessons. Different students learn differently and at different rates, but if you think your student is lagging behind in class, perhaps they just need some targeted attention from a mentor that could focus on their learning needs.

English includes a variety of topics and skills that can be challenging not just for young learners but also for middle school and high school students. Some of the common struggles students might encounter include issues with spelling, grammar, verb tenses, difficulty with reading fluently, and trouble remembering new or more complex vocabulary.

There can also be situations when a student has uneven skill development in the language —they may excel in certain areas like writing but don't perform well in other skills like speaking. Whether your student needs to improve specific English skills or just needs to have extra hours of study to push their current level, working with Houston English tutoring instructors can be an excellent way to provide them the support they need to improve their skills.

How is Houston English tutoring different from classroom learning?

When they work with private instructors, your child gets to study in a one-on-one academic setting where they have the full attention of their mentor. Unlike in a standard classroom, where the teacher has to accommodate a lot of students, private instructors only need to focus on your child's learning needs; thus, it's easier for them to provide quality, detailed coaching throughout the lessons.

Houston English tutors can spend as much time as necessary to help your child have a deeper understanding of a topic they're trying to learn. They can work on exercises slowly but surely and even repeat them if your child needs more practice. One of the most challenging topics to master in English is the different verb tenses. If your student is struggling to remember the different grammar rules for using verb tenses, their instructor can provide detailed explanations and your student can ask questions without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed.

Studying with an expert Houston English tutoring mentor who can provide instant feedback is another major difference between private instruction and classroom learning. Instant feedback is crucial especially if you want to instill new knowledge on a student and correct any misunderstandings they might have about a topic. If your child makes a spelling error, for example, their instructor can correct them instantly and monitor their performance in succeeding exercises. If your student gets corrected late, they might continue making the same mistakes until it's harder for them to correct themselves in the future. This instant feedback is something that can be difficult to find in a classroom setting.

Another great thing about private lessons is that your student can avoid common classroom-related distractions such as misbehaving classmates, people talking and passing by the hallways, and other noises and activities that might break their attention in class. During one-on-one lessons, your child can focus better on the task at hand and accomplish their exercises faster and with better results.

What are the benefits of having my student study with Houston English tutors near me?

Studying with Houston English tutors has several advantages that can help your child increase their English skills more effectively. They can have a customized study plan that is flexible and adjusts based on their learning style, skill level, and interests. For example, if your child is quick to learn how to determine the meaning of words from suffixes or prefixes, their instructor can wrap up the lesson and move on to a new topic.

When it comes to your child's natural learning style, Houston English tutoring instructors can also take that into consideration when planning exercises for your student. It can be easier for students to learn new knowledge and skills if the information is presented in a format that matches the way they naturally learn things. For example, if your child is a visual learner, their instructor can use colored tables or illustrations when teaching different verb conjugations. If your student is a kinesthetic learner, their mentor might ask your student to draw images that represent vocabulary words they're trying to learn.

Houston English tutoring can also be a way for your student to pick up on effective study methods they can use not just for English studies but also throughout their student life. Tutors can train your child on how to be better at note-taking, summarizing, highlighting important details when reading a textbook, etc. Sessions with private instructors can have life-long benefits!

It's not just your student who can experience the benefits of private lessons. Parents like you can also learn different teaching techniques that can make it easier to continue providing support to your child outside of tutoring. Their instructor can recommend reading materials or tools designed to help young learners increase their English proficiency. They can also share tips like reading out loud with your child a few minutes each day and asking them questions to check their reading comprehension.

Houston English tutors often provide homework support to students. This means parents can free up a few hours in their day when it comes to helping their child with schoolwork. When you have more time on your hands, you can attend to other personal obligations while staying confident that your child is learning from knowledgeable and caring tutors.

How can I fit Houston English tutoring into my student's schedule?

We recognize that your family already has a hectic schedule and traditional private lessons that require your child to travel to a physical location might not be the most attractive and convenient option. With this in mind, we created a user-friendly and robust Live Learning Platform that makes it possible for your student to work with the best Houston English tutors. Let us know your child's preferred schedule and we will do the hard work of finding expert English mentors who are able to meet your student for the lessons.

Online lessons on our Live Learning Platform take away the need for an extra commute. Your child can attend their lessons in the comfort of your home or online at locations such as the Central Library or the Lanier Theological Library. As long as there's a reliable internet connection, your student can meet their instructor via video chat and start learning.

Our platform has several features such as a shared document editor and a virtual whiteboard to help your student have a smooth online learning experience. If they need to work on an assignment with their instructor, they can upload the document using the document editor. If their instructor wants to write down an important grammar rule, the spelling of a particular word, or pointers about transitive and intransitive verbs, they can do so using the digital whiteboard. The platform is also capable of recording your student's sessions with Houston English tutors, so it's easy to go back to any past lesson if your child needs to review a topic they discussed with their instructor.
