Houston is located near the Gulf of Mexico and is the largest city in Texas. It is also the largest city in the southern United States. Houston features a wide variety of cultural attractions in its Museum District, and the city’s Theater District has one of the United States’ highest concentrations of performing arts venues. It is also home to NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Mission Control, and their presence gives Houston its nickname of “Space City.” It is one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the United States: over 90 different languages are spoken in Houston.
There are hundreds of elementary, junior, and senior high schools in the Houston area with tutors in close proximity available to provide private instruction across all grade levels. The Houston Independent School District has almost 300 public schools within its system, such as North Shore Senior High School and Elsik High School, and over 100 of these are magnet schools that offer discipline-specific instruction. If you are interested in seeking a postsecondary degree, Houston has four different state universities to choose from. The largest and most renowned is the University of Houston, a Tier One research university. There are many private higher learning institutions, including the elite Rice University. In-home or online test prep and tutoring may help bring these top schools within reach, and many top tutors have graduated from these universities. Additionally, a variety of community colleges are within Houston’s city limits. Even in community college, you might want to take advantage of online tutoring for test prep in your classes.
Each year, Houston throws festivals, parades, and events you can attend--many at no cost. The diversity of the city’s residents is reflected in these happenings, which include the Houston International Festival, the Bayou City Art Festival, and the Houston Greek Festival. The most popular and largest is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which lasts for almost three weeks. You can also take in a performance at one of Houston’s many cultural institutions. It is one of very few cities in the United States that is home to permanent professional performing arts companies in all four major disciplines: theater, opera, music, and ballet. In addition to the city’s performing arts offerings, Houston’s skyline boasts many remarkable structures designed by noted architects, including Cesar Pelli, Philip Johnson, and I. M. Pei.
Houston has professional teams for every sport except for hockey. The Astros, Rockets, and Texans are the city’s teams in baseball, basketball, and football, respectively. Both the Astros and the Texans play in state-of-the-art facilities with retractable roofs, which allow you to take in a game and enjoy the city’s temperate weather. The city also has a Major League Soccer team: the Houston Dynamo. If you're a cycling enthusiast, Houston offers over 150 miles of dedicated bikeways and a bikeshare system.
