Tutoring circumstances along with the number of sessions a student needs can have an impact on pricing. For example, if your high schooler attending United Nations International School - Manhattan Campus wants help with a research project, you might pay a different amount than if you want to prepare with an expert for the LSAT or GMAT.

The Manhattan School System

Manhattan, New York, is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. With more than 1.65 million people, it’s also the most densely populated borough. Considered to be one of the top financial hubs in the world, Manhattan acts as the economic and administrative center of New York City. Students living in Manhattan attend the New York City Department of Education, a district that manages more than 1,800 schools and 1.1 million students—making it the largest school district in the United States.

Varsity Tutors can help your child gain a personalized learning experience that sets them up for success throughout their life. From the moment your child enters a classroom for the first time until the day they receive their college degree, a personal tutor can assist them with preparing for tests, reviewing classroom material, and gaining a deeper appreciation for learning. As a result, your child could become a balanced student with the critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in professional and academic settings.

If you’d like to see how well the schools in Manhattan are performing on state assessments, check out the chart below.

Manhattan Test Scores

Standardized testing is a common part of education for most students in the country. Those living in Manhattan, however, must prepare for the Regents Examination. This comprehensive exam evaluates students’ knowledge of English, social sciences, algebra, geometry, and both physical and life science. There’s a lot of information to take in, which is why it’s important for students to get a head start on their learning so that they can succeed on test day.

Working with a private Manhattan tutor is an excellent way to help your child get ahead. Whether they need guidance preparing for college entrance exams or need help with the Regents Examination, a private tutor can assist them every step of the way. Working with a tutor gives your child a balanced learning experience that can increase their confidence and broaden their academic understanding. Not only could this increase their chances of scoring well on any upcoming tests and assignments, but your child can also learn how to develop better problem solving and organizational skills as well.

When you live in a large city like New York City, it’s important to keep in mind that the large size of the educational system doesn’t always translate to a superior learning experience. While Manhattan is home to some of the top schools in the country, not every high school is equipped with the latest resources and technology.

Recent Manhattan Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Courtney in Manhattan, NY
The student and I spent the majority of the time working through the homework packet, but we did the chance to play a short game to review her spelling list. I asked her to find words on the list ending in certain letters, and she had to spell them out in crayon without looking after she read them aloud to me. She was very energetic.

Tutoring review by Lily in Manhattan, NY
We went over the student's chemistry quiz on element symbols and she did okay (86), except her teacher counted off because her lower case "r's" look like upper case "R's." We also looked over chemistry homework on the periodic table. We went over French vocabulary dealing with medicine and health.

Tutoring review by Ishita in Manhattan, NY
The student had a prep book today, so we started working from the beginning on the math section. Went through basic math such as PEMDAS, adding negative numbers, and multiplying and dividing polynomials. Student is having some difficulties but is starting to pick up the information a little better.

Tutoring review by Paul in Manhattan, NY
We are continuing to focus on grammar and writing. This lesson, we spent a while on basic sentence diagramming: subject, verb, objects, pronouns, verb tenses, etc. He is doing better with this, despite starting basically from scratch. Continued with a discussion of SAT-specific grammar issues: misplaces modifiers, parallel structure, faulty comparisons. This class, he really seemed to grasp parallel structure for the first time, but will need more work on the other two.

Tutoring review by Ramya in Manhattan, NY
The student and I worked on his world history paper.  We researched some information for the third body paragraph.  We were able to find some information online and we drafted a paragraph. We also drafted a conclusion together. By the end of the session, we had a substantial portion of the paper discussed and completed. The student will need to finish adding footnotes and make his works cited page.  He will also need to add more information in his third body paragraph so that it has three supporting points.
