Minneapolis Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in Minneapolis?

The expense of securing tutoring for students in Minneapolis can differ based on your needs. A Minnesota parent who would like to get her fifth-grade student some extra writing instruction before middle school hits could get quoted one price per session, while a college student seeking test prep for the GMAT could be quoted another. It's possible that you may reduce your cost by signing up for additional sessions.

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

Finding a tutor for students in Minneapolis shouldn't be a struggle. That's why Varsity Tutors investigates the backgrounds of all tutors to make sure they have the skill and knowledge to be helpful with each lesson along the way.

From statistics to basic reading, we can match you with the person prepared to help you with your challenges. You don't have to be on a standard academic track to benefit from their services, either. Whether you're trying to become a chartered financial analyst or learn some Mandarin ahead of a big trip, there are plenty of offerings to choose from. These Minnesota tutors are not only capable of teaching on a wide variety of topics, but in approaching such lessons in a way that adapts to your preferred learning style. Whether you're someone whose comprehension of math topics in repeated quizzing or guided solving of sample problems, they can cultivate an approach that can grant you clarity.

Why choose Varsity Tutors for tutoring in Minneapolis?

Tutoring for students in Minneapolis offers significant benefits for students of all ages. One of the biggest advantages is that your sessions take place on a 1-on-1 basis.

This means you'll have undivided attention where you need it most, which can sometimes be hard to come by in a crowded classroom. This also means that your learning plan can be customized to your specific pace of learning. For example, if you were scheduled to move on from coverage of parabolic functions by next week, but you're still having a hard time accurately solving practice problems in your math class, the schedule can be adjusted to make sure you have a solid foundation before moving forward.

Whether your student is young and hoping to grow their science knowledge beyond what their teacher is currently offering, a junior looking to better prepare for the ACT or you are a college senior gearing up for the MCAT, there are so many benefits to working with a tutor. Our Educational Directors are standing by to help get you matched with the right one for you. They will take into account your needs, concerns, budget, and schedule before presenting you with your options. They can answer your questions and help you pick out the choice that works best. This approach to matching you with a tutor is part of why we're the best option for finding a tutor at any age.

The Minneapolis School System

Minneapolis, Minnesota, is part of the Twin Cities along with St. Paul. It is the largest city of the pair, with a population of about 422,000. The larger Twin Cities metropolitan area has an estimated population of 3.6 million. The nearly 35,000 students within the city attend one of the approximately 100 public schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools district. In addition to the public schools available in the city, parents can also choose from more than 20 private schools, or they can send their children to one of the schools in a neighboring district due to Minnesota’s open enrollment statute.

In such a large district, it can be difficult for parents to know where to turn if they discover their child is not achieving their academic potential. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with experienced Minneapolis tutors. In addition to securing the assistance of a personal tutor, the freedom to choose which school your child attends can be an advantage for parents. Because you can select the school your child attends, it is essential to be aware of how the schools nearby compare to one another. Here are some assessment scores for the biggest Minneapolis high schools:

Minneapolis Test Scores

All Minneapolis students have the opportunity to take a career and college readiness test. These tests include the nationally recognized ACT and SAT. However, Minneapolis students must also prepare for the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) or the alternate Minnesota Test of Academic Skills (MTAS), which cover reading, mathematics, and science. These exams come in grades three through eight as well as once during the high school years.

Even for children who are generally doing well in school, standardized exams can present a challenge. For some this will be due to testing anxiety, while for others the issue may be due to a lack of mastery in a specific subject area. A personal tutor can help your child regardless of the academic challenges they face.

While sending your child to a highly ranked school can improve their odds of academic success, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a child who attends a poorly rated school must struggle. However, it is good to know where schools stand. The table below identifies some of the most highly ranked schools in Minneapolis and shows how they compare to other schools in the state:

Minneapolis High School Rankings

High School Minneapolis Ranking State Ranking AP Pass Rate

Learning for Leadership Charter School 8 N/A N/A
MTS High School 9 N/A N/A

Even though Minneapolis has a high student population, the high school student-to-teacher ratio is on the low side. You can see how the largest schools in the city stack up in the chart below:

Tutoring review by Katherine in Minneapolis, MN
-focused on essay: on creating an effective thesis statement, giving appropriate examples, and staying on-topic -worked on Reading Comprehension. She is doing well on this part of the SAT- it comes to her much more intuitively than the math.

Tutoring review by Brittany in Minneapolis, MN
This was our last session before the holidays.  I worked mainly on math with the girls again, and we talked about their practice tests.  I also had Student A write another essay & a drill to help her better organize her essays.  Also, we talked about the girls using vocabulary cards over the break and taking second full-length practice tests.

Tutoring review by Jessica in Minneapolis, MN
Today the student and I went through the math and verbal sections on her practice admissions test and reviewed the questions that she missed. We discussed plugging in answer choices to find the one that correctly fits the question. Lastly, we reviewed her essay, which she did a great job on in both the structure and content.

Tutoring review by John in Minneapolis, MN
The student has a test coming up on Wednesday so we reviewed all of chapter 3 which covers logarithmic and exponential equations and functions. Also, we started solving systems of linear equations. I try to set up fake tests and extra questions to get him to be able to problem solve on his own. I already see signs of improvement so I hope his test scores go up noticeably!
