Achieve The Score You Want With MAP Tutoring

Dedicated Private MAP Tutoring Online

If your student could benefit from online MAP tutoring, Varsity Tutors is the only educational resource you need to know about. Our exclusive Live Learning Platform facilitates face-to-face instruction online, allowing your student to study for the MAP in a computer-based setting comparable to where they will actually take the test.

If you're concerned about the quality of instruction your student can receive online, there's no reason to be. Here are some of our Live Learning Platform's innovative features:

  • Video chat functionality
  • Shared document editor
  • Integrated practice problems
  • Virtual whiteboard
  • Automatic session recording

Boost Your MAP Score

The Measure of Academic Progress (or MAP) exams are adaptive assessments designed to measure a K-12 student's achievement and growth in reading, language usage, mathematics, and science. The whole point is to identify a student's areas of opportunity, so you don't want your student to get tripped up by the exam's formatting and test below their actual proficiency.

A private MAP tutor can administer practice assessments to help your student feel more comfortable with the interface they will be working with. They can also review mindfulness strategies so they don't get too worked up over the adaptive nature of the test. Adaptive exams serve easier test items when a student answers incorrectly, potentially affecting self-confidence.

Best Ways To Prep For the MAP

If you asked your student to study on their own, they may become so overwhelmed by the sheer volume of material that they make no progress. A MAP tutor can break complex ideas into more digestible bits so test prep feels less overwhelming.

Similarly, every student has unique academic needs. Software-based study aids offer no flexibility to adjust to a student's strengths and weaknesses, rendering them less efficient than a private instructor who can design a comprehensive study plan around your student's specific needs and goals.

How much does a MAP tutor cost?

The price of professional MAP tutoring depends on several different factors, including what your student needs to review and how often study sessions take place. For example, you are likely to pay a different rate for a brief look at the Scientific Method than a more in-depth review of trigonometry.

We can also set you up with a couple of cheaper options, including group tutoring that lets you split the cost of an instructor and a live MAP class provided by Varsity Tutors. Contact one of our friendly Educational Directors online or by phone for more information on these options.

How do I choose a MAP tutor?

Finding an instructor who has outstanding teaching skills and a familiarity with MAP exams can be more challenging than you might think, so why not let our experts handle the legwork? Our network includes a variety of thoroughly-vetted instructors, enabling us to connect you and your student with a knowledgeable MAP tutor in as little as 24 hours. We actively look for tutors who have a results-driven approach to education, so you can trust that the tutor who we refer to you will know how to use MAP assessments as the educational tool they are.

We are also happy to find you another instructor if our first recommendation isn't a good fit.

Are MAP tutors worth it?

Working with a private tutor may help the student in your life develop academic skills they can use for the rest of their student careers. For instance, writing down what you're reading as you go can be a great way to internalize the information.

Similarly, transcribing your notes can help the information sink in. If your student doesn't already do these things, their tutor can show them how to do so. There are many other benefits associated with private instruction as well. Please contact Varsity Tutors online or by phone to learn more today!

How can a tutor help you master the MAP?

The MAP Growth series of exams are intended to measure where a student is relative to where they should be considering their grade level. They are designed by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) as a measuring tool to make a student's academic growth as easily measurable as their height on a growth chart. If you would like your student to perform better on their next exam, Varsity Tutors can connect you with a MAP test tutor to help them reach their academic potential.

MAP test tutoring sessions are currently available for the following content areas:

  • Math
  • Reading
  • Language Usage (grammar)
  • Science
  • Spanish

These tests have no time limit, but are designed to last approximately 45 minutes per subject. They are also administered on a computer using special adaptive testing technology, meaning that the system selects the next question from a pool based on a student's previous responses. For example, the third-grade math test begins with third-grade mathematics questions but will shift to fourth, fifth, etc. if a student continues to get them right. Likewise, incorrect responses will bring about second or first grade-level questions until a student starts getting some correct. The test ends when a student has answered roughly half of all questions asked correctly, regardless of grade level.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online MAP Tutoring review by Ginger
The student and I discussed her previous scores. She had done very well overall, and she had missed the most questions in critical reading. I took a more detailed approach with her this time, asking her to carefully reword the question and to come up with her own answer, in addition to categorizing questions and looking for key words. She did very well.

Online MAP Tutoring review by Alexander
We spent most of the session working through a set of problems based on sample questions that the student has had trouble with in the past. The student is doing much better on the questions that deal with setting up and solving systems of equations in two variables. She's also gotten very good at solving the sort of counting and probability problems that show up on the SAT. We looked at, we still need to work on percentages and sequences (the latter mostly because grasping the generality of the "nth" term in a sequence is a big and difficult step up from more concrete math).

Online MAP Tutoring review by Tarana
We covered circles, solids, polygons, and some introductory algebra II concepts with exponents and radicals. While some of it feels familiar to him, I think it will be very helpful for him to continue going through this math book. The student is keeping up with a new book I recommended for him where he studies strategies and tips for the ACT Reading section for a few minutes each day for seven weeks.

Online MAP Tutoring review by Michael
During the first part of this session, the student and I worked on some of the question-types from the reading section of the SAT. After that, we continued our review of Math concepts from the previous session. We went over some vocabulary words at the end.

Online MAP Tutoring review by Jaclyn
The student had only missed three questions from the two reading passages she had done for homework, and all were instances of overthinking. There were few math questions she had missed on previous tests as well, so we spent most of the time on English. Her foundation of grammar rules and her ear for proper English are solid, so a few broader strategy tweaks were all she needed. The student is right on the cusp of big score jumps, so I'm looking forward to seeing how she does on her homework.

Online MAP Tutoring review by Jennifer
We went over the student's vocabulary lists and the flash cards he wrote up, and reviewed the vocabulary-building resources available to him through his laptop. Then we discussed how to approach verbal analogy problems on the SSAT and worked through sample problems, discussing how to analyze each analogy.
