Albuquerque Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Albuquerque?

The amount that you can expect to pay for tutoring for students in Albuquerque will depend on a few factors. For example, a prospective law student who is studying for the LSAT can expect to pay a different rate than a student at La Cueva High School who only needs to review for an upcoming science exam.

The amount of tutoring you or your student will need might also affect the cost per session. An elementary school student who plans to engage in several reading and writing tutoring sessions may pay a lower price per session than someone who only needs one study session to prepare for the MCAT.

The Albuquerque School System

Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the most populous city in the state, with a population of about 559,000. The Albuquerque greater metropolitan area has a population of nearly 910,000. The Albuquerque Public School (APS) district is one of the largest in the nation, providing educational services to nearly 100,000 students. In addition to the public and charter schools in the area, there are also many private and religious schools.

It can be challenging for parents to navigate such an extensive school system, especially if their child has unique learning needs or is struggling with their studies. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with highly qualified Albuquerque tutors who can help children reach their academic potential.

Albuquerque students need to prepare for the ACT or SAT during their high school years, but they have several other standardized exams to prepare for throughout their academic careers. The New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) is a statewide program with assessments given in reading, writing, social studies, math and science beginning in third grade. Exams are given each year through eighth grade. In high school, students take the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) and the New Mexico High School Competency Exam (NMHSCE). Students must pass the NMHSCE to graduate from high school.

Even students who attend the best schools may find themselves unsure of core academic concepts. A personal tutor can help your child fill any knowledge gaps and gain greater academic confidence.

As one of the largest school districts in the country, it is not surprising that many of the schools would be among the most highly ranked in the entire state. In fact, the top two schools in the state are in Albuquerque. To see how the best schools in the city compare to New Mexico’s overall averages, please review the table below.

A professional tutor can help your child prepare for one of the many standardized exams required by the state of New Mexico, but parents may not realize that private tutoring can also be beneficial for other learning needs. If your child is struggling with a concept or seems bored with their regular instruction, they may find it easier to work with a tutor in a one-on-one setting.

With such a large student body, parents may be surprised that the student-to-teacher ratio in Albuquerque schools remain reasonable. Many classes have fewer than twenty students even in the largest schools. Regardless, teachers can give only so much attention to one student. Tutoring allows your student to get the individualized attention they deserve. Below you can see how the largest Albuquerque high schools compare in class size.

While there are many options for parents of students in Albuquerque’s public school system, there are far fewer options when it comes to choosing a nearby university.

Recent Albuquerque Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Maria in Albuquerque, NM
The student needs to increase her attention span. After a half an hour she gets restless and her performance suffers. Today we reviewed the part of the assessment from last week that she finished modeling strategies for her to use to comprehend better. She then practiced them on her own to finish the test. She was able to perform the task with 80% accuracy.

Tutoring review by Penelope in Albuquerque, NM
The student wrote all his spelling test words and we discussed them together. Then he wrote the two sentences for his homework and worked on his handwriting.

Tutoring review by Chantal in Albuquerque, NM
The student worked on word problems that involved ratios, time, adding and subtracting with decimals, given an equation she had to correct the error, exponents and positive or negative outcomes, and order of operations. We also worked on science and the scientific methods, defining the components of experiments, and writing the observations. Excellent session.

Tutoring review by Belinda in Albuquerque, NM
This was my last day with the student, and we focused on math, specifically the speed subtraction tests. After looking over his tests, I saw that subtracting 9 from any number was usually left blank. I taught him the pattern where if you want to subtract 9 from any number first subtract 10 (which is easy to do in your head), and then just add 1. He was very successful with this strategy.

Tutoring review by Melvin in Albuquerque, NM
This session was mostly dedicated to precalculus. We looked at questions that asked about symmetry over the x axis, y axis, and the origin. We also looked at interpreting slopes with respect to real life situations. We then looked at questions in physics on vectors and how to determine resultants as well as breaking a vector into components. Overall, this session went well.

Tutoring review by Jonathan in Albuquerque, NM
Today, I went over atomic number, mass number, and atomic mass and what they are. I did many problems with the student, and he understood how to do the problems. Next, I covered ions and how to tell which element takes on what charge. I did many problems on that, and he understood how to do the problems. Lastly, I had him name ionic compounds and molecular compounds, and he was able to do the problems easily.
