How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Ellicott City?

The cost of tutoring for students in Ellicott City will depend on the kind of tutoring that you're looking for. For example, a college student who is studying for the GMAT or the MCAT might pay a different rate than a parent of an elementary school student who needs help with their basic math skills.

The price per tutoring session could also be affected by the number of sessions you'll need. A high school student at McDonogh School who requires ongoing tutoring sessions over a period of several months might pay a lower price per session than someone who only needs a few tutoring sessions to improve their writing skill. In any event, our Educational Directors can give you a better idea of how much you can expect to pay per session.

Which tutoring subjects does Varsity Tutors offer for students in Ellicott City?

A tutor for students in Ellicott City can cover practically any subject that you or your student wishes to study. Younger students can study basic math or reading comprehension, while high school students might study test prep or more advanced writing.

Tutoring for students in Ellicott City is also great for college students to help them with upper-level courses such as advanced biochemistry.

Why choose Varsity Tutors for tutoring in Ellicott City?

Not only can tutors cover practically any subject you or your student might be studying, but they allow students to study at their own pace and in a way that best suits their learning styles.

We also thoroughly vet all of the tutors we connect with students, and our proprietary algorithm allows us to match students with tutors who match their learning styles as well as their needs.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Steve in Ellicott City, MD
Discussed and worked on a web assignment for Chapter 5.1, which dealt with: - the central limit theorem; - probabilities of normal distributions v. sampling distributions using the CLT; - central tendency and the law of large numbers; - Z score calculations, their corresponding probabilities, and double-checking the work using the graphing calculator. The session went great.  The student picked up the material very easily today and forged ahead without a lot of guidance from me.  It was terrific seeing her pick up those topics so quickly and apply them without issue.  She did a fantastic job today.

Tutoring review by John in Ellicott City, MD
The student and I reviewed quickly her notes from her latest class and immediately started her homework.  Topics included:  direct and indirect variation, slope and related formulas (slope-intercept and point-slope forms), and creating single-variable linear equations from word problems.  She seemed to grasp this material quickly during the session and the majority of her homework was completed by the end of the session.  Her overall understanding of the material seems to be increasing as well.  In the last half hour of the session, I reviewed some chemistry concepts with her regarding a recent lab report.  We discussed strategies and techniques to improve her lab reports in the future.  We also worked on dimensional analysis problems using the metric system.  At the end of the session, it was decided that I will be tutoring her two times per week (Monday and Wednesday from 3:30-5:00 PM) in both algebra and chemistry.

Tutoring review by Ishita in Ellicott City, MD
Today was focused on getting to know how comfortable the student was with the test. He struggled a bit with synonyms and reading comprehension but was able to breeze through the math diagnostic section pretty easily. I'm going to bring in a little bit more difficult math for him to work on tomorrow.

Tutoring review by Brittany in Ellicott City, MD
The student got a new writing assignment from her teacher, which we spent a lot of time analyzing.  We focused mainly on picking one side of the argument, but making a thesis statement that acknowledges the opposing side.  We also spent time discussing what material to cover in her body paragraphs, specifically keeping the body paragraphs in line with the thesis of the paper.  Right now, she's focusing her ideas into a coherent argument, before she can begin to work on her style and diction.  I also brought her another prompt just so she can begin to get used to reading and analyzing a prompt and deciding where and how to start writing a paper.  We talked through how she might begin to tackle this prompt.  I will continue to bring various prompts so she can become used to this initial process of analyzation and prewriting, before moving on to the actual writing process.

Tutoring review by Annie in Ellicott City, MD
Today was our last session! The student had a couple of scenarios to review. These were a wedding, a man losing his wallet, and giving directions. For these scenarios we wrote out scripts and then translated them into Spanish. He has a much better grasp on conjugating and I was impressed with all the work he has put into the preterite and imperfect. I think he is well prepared and will do a great job!
