How much will it cost to meet with a private tutor in Ann Arbor?

Finding a skilled tutor in Ann Arbor for you or your student is easy when you contact Varsity Tutors. We will find a private instructor who can focus on whatever skills or knowledge is most important.

Whether you are working on a graduate degree or your student attends a local school like Burns Park Elementary School or Slauson Middle School, we evaluate the needs of each student when connecting them to an Ann Arbor tutor.

There are a handful of factors that can come into play when talking about the price of sessions: the subject matter being studied, the experience level of the mentor, and the frequency of sessions are all elements that can affect the cost of working with a mentor. For example, sessions in which a high school student covers AP Calculus in the weeks before the exam could have a different price than sessions in which an elementary student works on sight words weekly. Taking part in tutoring is worth the cost and time for students of all ages and ability levels. Depending on your needs, you might find that private instruction is more affordable than anticipated. The best way to get a clear picture of what you can expect to pay is to contact us directly. Our Educational Directors can learn about your needs and give you a quote based on your situation.

What's the easiest way to find a private tutor in Ann Arbor?

Finding a tutor in Ann Arbor on your own can seem overwhelming. In addition to juggling the other elements of your life, finding a mentor involves searching for candidates, evaluating references and qualifications, and interviewing.

Rather than go through that work all by yourself, let us do it for you. We can find tutors for over 3,000 subjects. Every instructor in our network of more than 40,000 mentors has been extensively vetted. Our Educational Directors will take the time to learn your needs and set you up with an Ann Arbor tutor who is a good fit. We do more than simply ask about your schedule. We investigate your learning style, experience, and preferences as well to make sure that your sessions take place in as supportive and effective an environment as possible.

It is easy to imagine that these sessions are only for students who are doing poorly in their classes. However, even if you are doing well at an institution like the University of Michigan, you still might have questions. Many students who are doing well want to explore topics in greater depth or look into areas of a subject that are only briefly discussed in class. Of course, if you do feel that you are falling behind, a great mentor can design sessions that help you catch up with your classmates in a methodical, systematic fashion.

What kinds of tutoring are offered in Ann Arbor?

Because our network of mentors is so vast, we will find a tutor in Ann Arbor who can help you with whatever subject, and in whatever ways, are most pertinent to your goals. If you would learn best from a private teacher in Ann Arbor, we will find someone who fits your schedule.

One-on-one instruction is an opportunity for you to learn in a setting where your needs are the sole focus. They can move through the material at whatever pace is best for you and use methods that fit how you prefer to learn. Also, if your student wants to include other members of their class in sessions, small group tutoring is available to supplement their work with a mentor.

For homeschool students, tutoring can be a great way for your student to receive additional support. They can augment the instruction you are doing, and they are also able to provide in-depth guidance for challenging subject areas. These sessions can be integrated with learning pods. Whether your student is homeschooled full- or part-time, an excellent mentor can help them make the most of their opportunities. You can work with an instructor without having to leave the home. Our Live Learning Platform is a virtual classroom with tools like a shared document editor to facilitate meaningful interactions between you and your mentor. Through our Learning Lab, you can take assessments and tests to measure progress and suggest potential areas of focus. In addition to providing help with common subjects such as math, science, or reading, a mentor can help you prepare for standardized exams from AP Tests to the MCAT.

How does Varsity Tutors select tutors in Ann Arbor?

You or your student can experience learning with a tutor in Ann Arbor who is highly qualified. When we find a private teacher in Ann Arbor, we make sure to carefully vet them for key skills and competencies.

For starters, we look for those with excellent knowledge in their area of expertise. However, content knowledge itself is not enough. We make sure that mentors have the teaching skills and experience to present information in accessible and engaging ways. It is essential that instructors be able to modify sessions to accommodate pacing and learning needs for different students. Our rigorous selection process means that we turn away many applicants, leaving only the best mentors to work with you. Our high standards are a result of the belief that every student should have access to instruction that is centered around them. We believe students do their best when they are able to explore the material in whatever way is best for them.

If you attend a school like Pioneer High School or your student is entering kindergarten, we will find a great mentor. The assistance of a private teacher can help you reach for your full potential in a focused setting. You can contact us online or over the phone to ask any questions you might have. Our Educational Directors would love to help you get started, so reach out today.

The Ann Arbor School System

Ann Arbor, Michigan, is one of the smaller cities in the state with a population of only about 113,000. All the schools in the city are part of the Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) district. The district is noteworthy for having one of the nation’s leading music programs. The school district serves around 17,000 students in about 35 schools.

When you live in a smaller community, it often feels like all your child’s educational needs can be addressed sufficiently. However, even students in the smallest schools sometimes need a little extra help. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with professional Ann Arbor tutors who can give children the support they need to pursue academic goals.

Ann Arbor Test Scores

Students throughout the nation begin preparing for their ACT or SAT exam when they enter high school. Ann Arbor students must also prepare for the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) exams in grades 3-8 and the Michigan Merit Exam (MME) in grade eleven. Students in grades K-2 take the Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments. All these exams test students’ language arts and mathematics skills, with some also testing history and science. A personal tutor can help your child prepare for any of their upcoming assessments.

Because Ann Arbor is such a small school district, there are only a handful of high school choices for parents. Here are recent assessment scores at these schools.

Having a child work with a personal tutor is a logical step for many parents when a standardized exam is inching closer. However, students can benefit from personalized instruction throughout the school year and during summer vacations. Private tutoring can be especially helpful for students who are in classrooms with many other students. In busy classrooms, it can be difficult for the instructor to give each student the type of valuable individualized instruction students need. A personal tutor can provide your child with this one on one support.

It may be surprising for parents to find that while Ann Arbor Public Schools is a relatively small district, class sizes for most area high schools remain relatively large. The student-to-teacher ratio is similar to what you would see in a much larger school district. Consult the table below for more insight.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Benjamin in Ann Arbor, MI
Today we covered quadratic functions and the various forms they may be expressed. We analyzed the usefulness of each, then went over the methods that would be used to find the principal components of the graph from each form of the equation. The exercise we finished it off with required the use of these concepts to rule out expressions as being distinct from a given abstract parabola graph. The student appreciated the strengths and differences between each form of the equation as we worked through each section.

Tutoring review by Jackson in Ann Arbor, MI
Today was our final chance to work on the current section before all of the work was due. We got through most of it, and what was left was entirely review. I was impressed by the student's performance today; she did much better than she did during our previous sessions. Radicals were initially very difficult, but she seems to have finally grasped them.

Tutoring review by Chloe in Ann Arbor, MI
The student read her book with a lot of focus. There were some words she had to sound out, but other than that she read with fluency. She worked on her spelling words. She did very well with her spelling words. She did a nice job on her math, too.

Tutoring review by Nathan in Ann Arbor, MI
We went over net force problems and how to decompose a vector into the horizontal and vertical components so that we can sum forces in those directions. The student seems to be understanding a lot.

Tutoring review by Kelsey in Ann Arbor, MI
The student and I had a good session today. He pushed through to review two full reading passages. He had forgotten some of the smaller strategies for the reading, but remembered them once we went through a few question sets together. I'm looking forward to seeing him for our last review session next week.
