Varsity Tutors offers LSW courses for individuals who want to prepare for their social work license as an LSW. The Licensed Social Worker has achieved licensure requirements so they can help clients who have mental health issues. If you think that taking an LSW class can help you better prepare for getting licensed as a social worker, contact Varsity Tutors today.
The first step to becoming an LSW is to earn your degree from a CSWE-accredited program. You'll need to apply for a license and take the national ASWB exam. Working with a qualified tutor in LSW classes can help you build your study skills. You can work in a private one-on-one environment that is distraction-free to hone your focus. With our LSW course, you'll benefit from personalized attention from your private tutor. There is no syllabus to follow. The tutor creates a customized tutoring program so your LSW prep classes are optimized to your needs.
During the initial LSW class, the tutor can assess your skill set in the material covered on the licensing exam. The tutor can ascertain areas that you need more assistance with so the LSW prep course can be tailored to meet your specific learning needs. If you are concerned with taking the exam itself, the tutor can provide practice tests during the LSW prep class. Taking practice tests can help you get more familiar with the format of the exam and possible content that may be tested.
There are a variety of steps involved in becoming an LSW, ranging from earning your degree to completing the required work hours under supervision. The steps are listed below.
Steps to becoming an LSW

Another benefit of personalized tutoring in LSW prep courses is that you'll have time to ask your tutor any questions and receive timely answers. Your time won't be wasted by reviewing material you are already familiar with and you won't have to compete with other students for attention from the instructor. If you are a visual learner, the tutor can create customized sessions with graphical representations. If you are an auditory learner, you may benefit more from a Q&A discussion format.
We know you may have a busy schedule and we can try to match you with an instructor who can adapt to scheduling sessions as needed. If you need to complete online tutoring, we have a Live Learning Platform available. You get the same personalized face-to-face tutoring online as you would in person. A stable internet connection is necessary when you complete an LSW class online on our platform.
