Hawaii Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Hawaii?

The amount you pay for working with a tutor for students in Hawaii is determined by a variety of factors. One such factor is the complexity of study required.

a parent of someone studying grade school math, for instance, may be quoted one price, while a student studying college Algebra could be quoted another. The number of sessions required also plays a significant part in calculating your expense. Those who pay for more sessions, like a parent seeking support for her student in science over the course of a semester, could see a lower overall cost per session than someone who, for instance, only wants a few study sessions before taking the GMAT. Our Educational Directors can provide additional insight on this subject.

Which tutoring subjects does Varsity Tutors offer for students in Hawaii?

The range of subjects that can be explored through tutoring for students in Hawaii is broad and deep. From an introduction to the basics of chemistry to advanced studies in musical composition, the possibilities are nearly endless.

What's more is that instruction is available at nearly all stages of comprehension in this array of fields, meaning there's an option for almost everyone. You don't need to be seeking a lesson or two to satisfy academic needs to benefit from tutoring, though. Hawaiian tutors can also provide support to professionals pursuing certifications for holding roles like that of a CPA or CFA. They can bolster hobbyists, too, providing instructions in areas of interest well outside of a career path.

Why choose Varsity Tutors for tutoring in Hawaii?

Tutoring for students in Hawaii gives you the ability to work with a teacher whose sole focus is you. Instead of competing for attention in the classroom, you get 1-on-1 time with someone who not only knows the material but knows where you stand with it.

They have the luxury of getting to know your weaknesses and strengths before crafting a lesson plan that specifically addresses your needs, like plotting out a strategy for test prep ahead of the LSAT. Because you are the only student in that equation, the learning plan can be flexible. If you're having a tougher time with poetic devices than initially expected, for instance, your tutor can shift the lesson plans around to make sure you fully understand the concepts before moving on to something like 19th-century British poetry.

If you're ready to learn more about how working with a tutor for students in Hawaii with real skill could benefit you, our Educational Directors are standing by. They will spend time speaking with you about your goals and concerns before making recommendations that fall within your budget and can work with your schedule. From there, you'll be able to engage with your tutor using a secure web platform.

There's no excuse for a delay. Reach out online to Varsity Tutors today to get connected with a tutor for students in Hawaii soon!

The Hawaii School System

The only U.S. state that outside of North America, the island state of Hawaii is home to approximately 1.5 million residents. There are almost 400,000 K-12 pupils divided among the state’s public and private schools. Public school students in Hawaii attend schools under the nation’s only statewide public school system. In total, there are seven different districts overseen by the Hawaii Department of Education.

Below you can see the student-teacher ratio of some of Hawaii's largest schools. Crowded classrooms sometimes mean that teachers can't address the learning needs of each student. If you've got a student who needs to catch up, Varsity Tutors can help by connecting you with a talented Hawaii tutor.

Hawaii Student-to-Teacher Ratios

James Campbell High School has a 17 1 student-teacher ratio.

Mililani High School has a 19 1 student-teacher ratio.

Waipahu High School has a 16 1 student-teacher ratio.

Gov. Wallace Rider Farrington High School has a 18 1 student-teacher ratio.

Kapolei High School has a 18 1 student-teacher ratio.

Hawaii State Average has a 16 1 student-teacher ratio.

Almost all of Hawaii’s top high schools have student-to-teacher averages that hover around the state average of 16:1. The very best public high school in Hawaii has class sizes that fall well below the state average, however, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 12:1. Most of the top ten public high schools offer Advanced Placement courses to their students, and altogether, Hawaii’s AP exam pass rate averages to just below 50 percent.

Whether your child is a grade schooler who needs help ensuring his or her foundational skills are strong before moving onto more advanced concepts or a high schooler who could use some guidance as he or she prepares for the ACT or SAT, private tutoring in Hawaii can resolve academic problems of all kinds. Though your first instinct might be to purchase a do-it-yourself resource like review workbooks, consider looking into tutoring. The assistance of a tutor gives your child the chance to interact one-on-one with an experienced educator during lessons that are taught in a manner custom-fit to your student’s style. This may mean incorporating your child’s interests into sessions, using special techniques that appeal to your child’s preferred instructional style, or another method that’s unique to your child’s learning needs.

Hawaii Test Scores

The chart above shows how the busiest Hawaii high schools fared on state assessments. From third through eighth grade, students take the Smarter Balanced Assessments, a range of tests that evaluate their knowledge and application of Common Core concepts in English language arts and mathematics. Students are required to take the SBAs once more, in their junior year of high school. If your child is experiencing pre-test jitters as he or she prepares for statewide assessments, college admissions exams, or just next week’s math test, he or she might find private tutoring to be the extra help necessary to conquer his or her fears. And if your student is in one of the colleges located in Hawaii, there are tutors available who specialize in college-level courses and beyond. See how Hawaii colleges rank below.

Recent Hawaii Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Lyndsey in Hawaii
In this session, we worked on the student's final review and covered questions on ambiguous triangles, evaluating trigonometric functions without a calculator, and polynomials. She learned polynomials some time ago, so she needs a little refresher on the topic. I sent an email with some notes on polynomials. Good luck on your test!

Tutoring review by Sonia in Hawaii
We went over the topics for the student's Physics and Algebra courses. We looked ahead to what she would be covering in those courses after the holiday. She has brought both class grades up and is now consistently making high B's. One thing we discussed is her tendency to get nervous about lengthy word problems, even when she understands the math or physics necessary to answer the problems. We discussed strategies to keep calm and break the problems down into the necessary smaller pieces and how to think critically.

Tutoring review by Jason in Hawaii
The student has a chemistry test tomorrow, so we went over the concepts of calculating mass percent, naming compounds, determining chemical formula, balancing chemical equation, calculating limiting and excess reagent, and so on. She did really well on the practice questions related to these concepts.

Tutoring review by Jennifer in Hawaii
The student was working on a revision packet this week. Her greatest area of need was considering the upper and lower bounds of a number. Whole numbers were not a challenge, but considering decimals was. She would evaluate the upper bound of a number such as 5.5 correctly (5.55), but she would forget to include the entire lower bound, answering 5.50 or 5.49. This was remedied by considering the smallest number that would still round to 5.5. More practice may be required to cement the knowledge. We also worked on advanced sequences that required writing the terms as multiples of n. Once she saw that the terms can be considered as the same type, she was able to apply the theme to novel problems.

Tutoring review by Dina in Hawaii
Today, we spent our session working Physics vector problems and finding resultant vectors and applying those skills to real world problems. The student was struggling with her diagrams, so I showed her the mathematical method to solve those problems. We also worked on free body diagrams.

Tutoring review by Patrick in Hawaii
We covered division properties and division. She was quick to pick up on division properties (i.e. half of hundreds using 5 as half of ten in new core algorithm). She was positive and working hard. The rest of her homework was left for practice Her test score went up to a C+ (78), with each question worth over two points up from a high D earlier. No concerns.
