Receive A High-Caliber Tutor

Every Long Island tutor must meet our high standards for qualifications, pass an interview screening, and submit a background check. From this elite group, a Varsity Tutors director helps pair you with a tutor ready to meet your individual needs – and we stand behind your satisfaction with our money-back guarantee.

Skilled tutors develop lessons to meet your individual needs. One-on-one tutoring sessions are held at a time and location of your choosing.

How much does a private tutor in Long Island cost?

The cost of working with a private tutor in Long Island depends on several different variables, including the level of material you or your student wish to review, your specific location, how often you want to meet, and more. Tutoring for a student working on a book report at a grammar school such as Willits Elementary School would carry a different price tag than mathematics tutoring for a student attending Great Neck South High School, for instance.

Likewise, you may pay a different rate if you establish a set schedule with your instructor than if you did not.

The size of your study group can also influence what you're charged. Most tutors offer both one-on-one and group sessions, allowing students to select the learning environment that works best for them. Reviewing 1:1 ensures that your instructor can concentrate exclusively on your areas of opportunity, but studying in a group can make it easier to consider multiple viewpoints on a topic. Both options are great, and Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a small group class as an affordable supplement to any tutoring plan as well. A Long Island tutor can slow things down for students who are feeling overwhelmed, or speed things up for those who get bored in class. Therefore, private instruction is a worthwhile investment for all students. Please contact us by telephone or online for more information on what the services you're looking into might cost.

How do I find a private tutor in Long Island?

A great tutor in Long Island has to have robust academic expertise, superlative communication skills, and the availability to meet each student's needs. It takes a lot of work to verify that any candidate possesses all three qualities, so why not leave the logistics to the expert Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors?

Our network of independent tutors includes over 40,000 instructors, so we will find a fantastic fit for your academic and scheduling needs in as little as 24 hours.

If you want to review Biology I concepts such as ecosystems and Mendelian genetics with someone who has professional experience, we will arrange that for you. If your child struggles with percentages, we'll refer you to a knowledgeable Long Island tutor who can find ways to make mathematics more engaging. Your needs always come first.

We will also find you an instructor you can study alongside without ever having to leave your house. Our Live Learning Platform is an exclusive virtual classroom designed with a student's needs in mind. For example, your instructor can integrate practice questions directly into its electronic interface so you can work on them together. Likewise, a shared document editor allows your instructor to provide real-time feedback on written assignments. Each session is also recorded automatically, so you can go back and revisit previous lessons whenever you wish. What could be more convenient than that?

What types of tutoring are offered in Long Island?

Varsity Tutors has matched students with experts in over 3,000 different subjects in the past, and we will find a great fit for you as well. If you're learning about world religions at an educational institution such as Stony Brook University SUNY, we'll find you a tutor who knows all about Shinto.

If you want to review marine biology, we'll find you a tutor with a deep understanding of how life has adapted to such a unique environment.

A private teacher in Long Island can also help you with standardized test prep. If you are finishing your education at a local school such as Half Hollow Hills High School East, your instructor can concentrate on the concepts most likely to appear on your last wave of Regents examinations. If you are taking a test like the MCAT, GRE, or SAT, your instructor can administer practice questions to help you understand how the exam presents important keywords such as "not" and "except." We will even find you a professional certification tutor if you're interested in adding something like CCNA Routing and Switching to your resume.

It may seem like a luxury to work with a private teacher in Long Island if you're homeschooling your children, but a professional educator can provide invaluable support. For example, your tutor can demonstrate how to grade assignments objectively so your student can benefit from making any corrections. They can also present any material you don't feel confident teaching. You'll also get access to our Learning Lab. It provides adaptive assessments to measure your student's progress toward the next grade level and informational videos that can further their understanding of academic concepts, giving you more tools in your toolbox. Why homeschool by yourself when a tutor makes it so much easier?

How qualified are tutors in Long Island?

Varsity Tutors uses a thorough screening process that very few candidates make it through, allowing you to trust that your tutor is among the best in the area. Our screening begins with an examination of each candidate's knowledge base and communication skills, as both are required of a great instructor.

We also verify each candidate's availability, ensuring that students can meet their instructor whenever would be most convenient for them.

We also look for instructors who bring great personalities to the table, as students may not feel comfortable working with an instructor they don't care for. Furthermore, we look for instructors who embrace modern teaching techniques because no two students will respond to a given instruction method in the same manner. Most importantly, we emphasize a passion for education throughout our verification process, as an instructor's love of learning can be contagious.

Tutoring provides great benefits for students at all levels of the educational ladder, and we're excited to see what it could do for you or your student. If you are ready to experience the difference that a private tutor in Long Island can make for yourself, contact Varsity Tutors online or by phone to get the convenient registration process started today. We look forward to helping you reach for academic success!

Tutoring review by Elizabeth in Long Island, NY
The student finished reading Ch. 4 and doing the Ch. 3 practice exam last week. We went over her questions at the beginning of the session. We then worked through almost all of Ch. 5 together. I asked the student to finish Ch. 5, start Ch. 6, and do the Ch. 4 practice exam for next week.

Tutoring review by Jessica in Long Island, NY
This session, the student and I worked a lot on short vowel sounds. We started with some "easier" consonant exercises (beginning "p" sound and ending "n" sound). Then we talked about beginning vowel sounds and then made the transition to middle vowel sounds. She was picking up on it really quickly -- she's especially good at identifying "a" and "o" sounds, and knows how to spell "cat" and "dog" with no trouble at all! She's really improving her reading -- she can sound out many three-letter words and is starting to identify rhyming words on her own as well!

Tutoring review by Tom in Long Island, NY
The student and I continued working on ACT prep in a variety of sections. She continues to do well in math, and the reading strategy we've been trying seems to work for her. In the future, we would probably do well to focus on English in the future.

Tutoring review by Richard in Long Island, NY
Today the student and I started covering Organic Chemistry Topics. We were able to discuss types of bonds, different types of isomers, laboratory equipment and workings, and we discussed hydrocarbons and alcohols. We are focusing on the most important aspects of each topic. We also were able to practice some organic chemistry questions.

Tutoring review by Lee in Long Island, NY
We wanted to make sure the student was comfortable with the material for her test on Monday. I wrote many worksheets and practice problems, and she was doing extremely well by the end.

Tutoring review by Rebecca in Long Island, NY
The student did a practice reading section.  We reviewed ways to skim the paragraph and to match the tenses in the rest of the sentence to figure out the answer.  The student also started a practice science section she will finish on her own.
