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.

What prompted you to seek tutoring?

I'm very grateful to have found VT. They made the difference between a pass and fail grade for my son. English was one of his most challenging classes and with Varsity Tutors he passed the course. I'm forever grateful.

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!!

If you're looking for the best Los Angeles English tutors for either yourself or the student in your life, Varsity Tutors can set you up with a great instructor in as little as 24 hours. English is a student's constant companion throughout their educational career, beginning with the alphabet as soon as they start school and extending to the university level and beyond. The topics covered can vary dramatically by level, but students of all ages can potentially benefit from working with Los Angeles English tutors. If you'd like to learn more about how private instruction might be a good choice for you, keep reading for more info.

Why is working with Los Angeles English tutors near me a better option than relying exclusively on classroom instruction?

Most English classes have a set curriculum and a limited school year to cover it all, making it hard for the average teacher to provide the personalized support some students may need to keep up with their peers. Los Angeles English tutors can provide the individualized attention classroom teachers are generally unable to, allowing you or your student to reach for your full academic potential.

For example, Los Angeles English tutoring sessions take place in a private learning environment free of many commonplace classroom distractions. Since you or your student are the only people your instructor is working with, any questions you ask can be answered before you start to become discouraged. Likewise, younger students may find it easier to ask for help in a one-on-one learning environment as opposed to a crowded classroom.

A private instructor also has fewer papers to grade than their classroom counterparts, allowing you or your student to receive prompt feedback you can use to learn from your mistakes. Los Angeles English tutors can even introduce new concepts as their charges are ready to receive them, allowing students to study at a comfortable, yet engaging pace. If you already understand how to properly cite your sources, your instructor can concentrate on other things to improve your study efficiency. If your child is having a hard time differentiating between vowels and consonants, their instructor can keep explaining it until it clicks.

Private instructors can also design Los Angeles English tutoring sessions around your natural learning style to improve your study efficiency. For instance, a visual learner could use flashcards and other visual aids to expand their vocabulary, while an auditory learner might prefer to hear new words used in a sentence. There is no "proper" way to study, so why not choose a methodology that you or your student are comfortable about?

What topics can my student or I discuss during Los Angeles English tutoring sessions?

What gets covered during Los Angeles English tutoring sessions depends on how old a student is. If your child is attending elementary school, their sessions can center around concepts such as phonics, sight words, sentence structure, and subject vs. predicate. Younger students often work best in an environment that doesn't feel like work, so your child's instructor may play educational games with them to reinforce key concepts.

Middle school English includes topics such as Latin prefixes and suffixes, basic reading comprehension, and grammatical rules concerning punctuation and verb tenses. If your child doesn't seem to be interested in reading, allowing them to choose the material they practice with may make learning more fun. Los Angeles English tutors can also share fun mnemonics to make grammar rules easier to remember. For example, a song listing prepositions can make it easier to remember what they are and the role they serve in a sentence.

At the high school level, students begin organizing essays and composing arguments backed by solid evidence. If you or your student could more effectively articulate your thoughts in essays, you can practice outlining during Los Angeles English tutoring sessions to make it easier to convey your ideas. You or your student can also review literary devices such as allegory and personification to develop a deeper understanding of the prose and poetry you read in class.

If you're looking for help with college-level coursework, your Los Angeles English tutoring sessions can focus on anything you need help with. If you've enrolled in a Writing course, you can review how to edit your own work to ensure that all of your arguments are sound. If you're studying Literature, you can discuss works with your instructor in order to benefit from a second perspective about them.

Private instructors can also help you refine your broader academic skills. If your student's notebooks are an incomprehensible mess, they can review organization strategies to make it easier to locate the notes they need. If you or your student have a big test coming up, your instructor can share test-taking techniques such as meditation and how to take an educated guess to improve your self-confidence.

Are you sure formal Los Angeles English tutoring can work with my jam-packed lifestyle?

Between school, work, hobbies, and social engagements, we understand how busy you or your student are. Therefore, we try to make working with Los Angeles English tutors as easy as possible. We do all of the research that goes into finding a great instructor, allowing you to trust that you're working with somebody good without ensuring so yourself. We also try to match every client with an instructor capable of meeting their scheduling needs, so study sessions don't take over your life. We can even arrange your choice of online or in-person sessions for an extra layer of convenience.

If you choose online study sessions, you or your student will meet your instructor on our mobile-friendly Live Learning Platform and take the logistical headache out of private instruction. You can access our platform anywhere with a stable internet connection, making it just as easy to study at home as a more traditional location such as the Memorial Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. Why go out of your way when a great study experience is at your fingertips?

There's also no need to worry about the quality of online study sessions. Our platform includes video chat capabilities, so you can see and hear your instructor as though you were in the same room. Integrated practice problems and a shared document editor also allow your instructor to watch you as you work, making it easy to pinpoint the underlying cause of any mistakes. Best of all, every session is recorded for future reference. This is great if you want to go back and review something, and it's also useful for keeping tabs on a younger student's progress. Who knew private instruction could be so easy?
