Mr. D. was able to keep my daughter engaged and interested the entire session. He made her feel confident with reading. She stated that he was the "best teacher in the world". She gave him two thumbs up and a heart. I'm very pleased with my investment towards my child's education using Varsity Tutors.

We've helped thousands of learners of all ages improve their reading and English skills including teaching English as a second language.

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!!

How can a SAT Reading tutor help you?

The SATs have recently changed to be less vocabulary intense and more straightforward, testing you on what you have previously learned rather than gauging your ability to learn. Because of this fact, the SAT Reading portion of the test shouldn't seem so daunting. However, many students fear failure more so now that the test has been redesigned, perhaps because they are unsure of what's to come. If you find yourself apprehensive about studying alone, consider contacting Varsity Tutors. Our educational directors are experts at assisting students in finding personal SAT Reading tutors in Chicago, IL, who can go over the key elements that will be found on the exam.

The SAT Reading section contains 52 questions and takes 65 minutes to complete and will cover passages from literary, scientific, or historical documents. You will be asked to use the context to define the meaning of a word, examine the hypothesis, interpret the data contained, and consider the implications of the text. Your personal tutor will work with you to determine what areas cause you the most stress and then devise a study plan to practice those skills, whether it's using context clues to identify meanings, analyzing word choice as it relates to style, or identifying tone. Varsity Tutors can find you an expert tutor in Chicago who can streamline studying to help you prepare for the reading portion of the SAT exam.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by Kimberly in Chicago, IL
The student and I worked on the reading section of the test. He expressed that he is feeling frustrated by the time pressure and tends to get overwhelmed by negative thoughts. We practiced some passages together, while staying focused on finding the main idea.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by Lauren in Chicago, IL
I had the student finish the SAT Reading diagnostic test for homework, and we went over the results together. He did extremely well, and only got three questions wrong. I had him take a diagnostic test for the SAT Verbal section during our session, and we went over those results as well. We went over the questions together. We also discussed some general strategies for answering the questions on the Verbal section. For our next session, he is going to try to take another diagnostic Verbal test.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by Cecilia in Chicago, IL
Our first meeting went very well! We went over the student's goals, past history with the SAT, and biggest strengths and weaknesses with regards to test-taking and strategy. Then, we spent time working through the three English sections of the SAT (essay, CR, writing), discussing overall points of strategy, and also what the graders are looking for overall. For the essay, we looked at her essay from the last test, and talked about improvements in argument and structure. For CR, we worked through a whole prompt question-by-question, introducing a new framework for eliminating answers that may all seem correct. Finally, we looked at writing, which I would say is her best section at this point. In our next sessions, we'll use the time to deep-dive into each section. I asked her to take an additional English practice test over the weekend, and to pay special attention to which types of questions trip her up, so we can zoom in on a personalized approach.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by Brian in Chicago, IL
We continued SAT Reading review, specifically the prediction strategy. The student found it easier to determine which multiple choice options to select if he ignored the choices and focused on the question. He managed to come up with good answers on his own and still find the correct multiple choice option.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by Rita in Chicago, IL
We focused on the reading section on the SAT, working on passages from the practice tests 5 and 6. The student said he misses questions mostly from the literature passage when there is old-fashioned written dialogue, and the sections with two rhetorical passages to compare. However, he found the four passages we worked on fairly easy and didn't miss any questions. I asked him to look for at least four sections with passages he finds harder in terms of comprehension for the next session on the reading section and for personal practice. We will focus on the essay section next time.

SAT Reading Tutoring review by John in Chicago, IL
We practiced more SAT verbal sections and discussed strategies for them. The student has had more difficulty with verbal than with writing and language in the practice test she took this week. We also reviewed two SAT essay prompts and discussed the important parts of the passages. I assigned the student more verbal practice and two essays for the next session.
