Louisville Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Louisville?

The cost of studying with a tutor for students in Louisville is based on a few different things. First, you may be able to bring down your cost per lesson by signing up for more study sessions at once.

So the cost of last-minute test prep for the LSAT, ACT, GMAT, or MCAT, could be different than what you'd pay to get long-term help for a student who's struggling with reading comprehension or math. Additionally, the type of content that you want to explore during tutoring for students in Louisville could influence your charges. The best way to get more personalized pricing information is to reach out to us directly.

The Louisville School System

Louisville, Kentucky, is the largest city in the state, with a population of about 616,000. Jefferson County Public Schools oversees more than 170 schools, serving approximately 100,000 students. In addition to the public schools in the area, there are nearly 30 Catholic schools. The city is also home to the Kentucky School for the Blind, which serves the state’s visually impaired and blind students.

It can be intimidating for a student to be part of such a large school district. There is steep competition for the attention of every instructor, every sports team, and for a spot in after-school activities. As a parent, it can be difficult to know how to help your child navigate such a large system. Fortunately, Varsity Tutors can help by connecting parents with highly qualified Louisville tutors. A personal tutor can offer your child the academic support they need to gain confidence in their academic skills and reach their learning potential.

Here is a chart of assessment performances from some of the biggest high schools in Louisville.

Louisville Test Scores

Across the nation, students begin preparing for nationally recognized college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT in high school. Students in Louisville gain plenty of experience in taking standardized exams long before they ever leave elementary school. Beginning in third grade, Louisville students start taking the mandatory Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress (K-PREP) in reading and mathematics. Throughout their academic careers, students will also take assessments in science, writing, and social studies.

If your child is preparing for an exam, working with a personal tutor can make the process go more smoothly. Whether your child needs a refresher on subject material or they just need access to better testing strategies, a professional tutor can help them reach their academic goals.

Even if your child attends one of the best schools in the city, they can benefit from working with a tutor. Louisville is home to some of the best high schools in the state. You can take a look at the table below to find out which area high schools are ranked the best and how they compare to other high schools in the state.

Personalized instruction is critical for most students who are having difficulty making learning gains in a traditional classroom. In larger class settings, it is difficult for instructors to customize the learning content and material to match each student's preferences. A personal tutor, on the other hand, can take the time to create learning materials designed with your child’s learning needs and learning style in mind.

It can be helpful for parents to have an idea of how large the classes their child attend will be. The largest high schools in Louisville have fairly large class sizes as demonstrated by the teacher-to-student ratios listed in the table below.

Recent Louisville Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Saloni in Louisville, KY
We focused on pre-algebra. I can see that the extra practice on showing his work has really helped him. He shows his work without being told. I did leave him to do some of the homework so I can get a better understanding of how much information he retains on a daily basis. So far he is doing really well on math. He also worked on his reading project that is due on Friday.

Tutoring review by Andrea in Louisville, KY
We went through and edited the student's speech for class representative. He read it aloud and timed it to make sure it was an appropriate length. We also read aloud from Hatchet, answering critical thinking questions along the way. Lastly, we worked from the test prep book answering comprehension and editing questions about a pre-written argument essay.

Tutoring review by Ted in Louisville, KY
The student wanted to take today's session to review her math lesson from school. She is still feeling iffy in regards to the math lessons because she forgot a number of fundamentals from her previous school years. Fortunately, today was very productive. I was very proud to see that she was more than capable of doing well in math. Today's lesson covered absolute values with inequalities. The first few questions were used to ease her into the material, but by the third question and onward, she was on a roll. We were able to get through everything without much difficulty. A key concept that was reviewed were the questions involving operations next to absolute values. The idea was to isolate the absolute value sign with nothing else conflicting with it. Once that was done, the next step was the same as the other questions. She quickly caught on. By the end of the session, she was very ecstatic in regards to comprehending the material. We will continue our next session with an in-depth look into the SAT exam.
