What's the price of studying with a private tutor in Phoenix?

The price of reviewing with a private teacher in Phoenix depends on the specific services you or your student need, including the level of material you want to cover, where you live, how often you intend to study, the size of your study group, and so on. For instance, tutoring for a young learner focusing on reading comprehension at Benchmark School would be a different price than tutoring for a student finishing up at Gilbert Classical Academy High School who is interested in standardized test prep.

Likewise, you may be charged differently for as-needed meetings than you would be if you set up a set schedule with your instructor.

Most tutors offer both individualized and group sessions, allowing students to select the atmosphere they feel most comfortable with. Working in a one-on-one learning environment allows your instructor to concentrate exclusively on your unique areas of opportunity, while reviewing in a group setting allows you to benefit from multiple perspectives on challenging concepts. Both arrangements are great learning tools, and Varsity Tutors can supplement either one by enrolling you in an affordable small group class.

How a tutor in Phoenix can help students who are struggling is self-explanatory, but a private instructor can also help keep high-achievers engaged in the learning process by presenting concepts more quickly. Please contact us to find out more about the benefits of private tutoring, including what the services you're interested in could cost.

How do I locate a private tutor in Phoenix for my student?

If you tried to find a Phoenix tutor on your own, you would have to make sure that any promising candidate could provide the expertise required to answer student questions, the communication skills expected of a great instructor, and the availability to meet on your terms. Why jump through all of those hoops when the Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors will connect you with a great tutor in Phoenix in as little as 24 hours?

Our database contains more than 40,000 independent instructors, so we will be able to accommodate all of your special requests.

If your student has seldom needed to sit down and study in the past, we'll match you with a tutor who can help them refine their study skills. If you could retain more of the information in textbook readings, we'll find you a tutor who can share active reading tips. We will even connect you with a certified instructor whom you can study alongside without ever leaving the comfort of home. Our Live Learning Platform is a virtual classroom designed to make remote tutoring as accessible as possible. Powerful features like video chat and integrated practice problems can facilitate the same type of collaboration you would expect to find in a traditional classroom. Furthermore, every session is recorded automatically for future reference. Who knew that private tutoring could be so convenient?

What are the types of tutoring offered in Phoenix?

Varsity Tutors has successfully matched students with expert tutors in over 3,000 subjects in the past, and we're ready to find you a great tutor in Phoenix as well. If you are studying biochemistry at a local school such as Arizona State University, we'll refer you to a tutor who has practical experience working with the concepts you are concentrating on.

If your child gets bored in math class, we'll find you a tutor who can relate concepts in their textbook to more exciting things like sports.

A private teacher in Phoenix can also help you prepare for high-stakes examinations. If your student is preparing for their first AzM2, their instructor can administer practice assessments under realistic conditions to help them understand what to expect. If you're finishing up at Phoenix Union Bioscience High School and looking forward to your ACT, we'll set you up with an expert on the exam's Science section. We will also find you support for hundreds of different professional certification tests and graduate-level exams like the GRE.

A tutor can even help you homeschool your children. If you don't think you need a tutor to help your student reach for their potential, you should know that a tutor can take on a lot of the work you're currently doing. Your instructor can provide you with an appropriate lesson plan and even teach concepts you don't feel comfortable presenting. Working with a tutor also gets you access to our Learning Lab, a collection of resources such as adaptive assessments to help you make the most of homeschooling. We're willing to bet that you won't want to go back to homeschooling by yourself once you experience how much easier it is with a tutor.

Are the tutors in Phoenix assessed for their qualifications?

Our Educational Directors use a comprehensive screening process to rule out many candidates, so the Phoenix tutor who we refer to you will meet your needs. We begin by ensuring that every prospective instructor offers a thorough understanding of relevant academic concepts and outstanding communication skills because students expect both qualities from a tutor.

We also verify each instructor's stated availability so there are no unwelcome surprises when students try to schedule a session. After that, we look for the skills that differentiate a great tutoring experience from a merely average one. For instance, we search for passionate instructors who will do whatever it takes to see their pupil's face light up when a difficult concept finally clicks. We also value tutors who are comfortable with multiple teaching styles and techniques because they are better able to accommodate each student's preferred session structure. Most importantly, we look for great personalities that students can get excited about working with regularly. A meaningful personal rapport can really expedite the learning process.

If you are ready to find out how a tutor in Phoenix could help you or your student reach for your educational goals, reach out to Varsity Tutors online or by phone today! Our knowledgeable Educational Directors are standing by to address any lingering concerns you may have.

The Phoenix School System

Phoenix has more than 300 public schools in 30 school districts, along with nearly 200 private and charter schools. The way the schools are designated and organized is a bit more complicated in the Phoenix area than in most other school districts. It is the legacy of rapid city expansion into other incorporated areas. Many of the existing schools were already in place before they became part of Phoenix. Because of this, some school districts only serve grades K-8 while others only serve grades 9-12, and still others have schools in grades K-12. It can be challenging for parents to discern which school their child will be directed to as he or she advances through the system, and even more difficult to determine what placement would be most beneficial.

No matter which school your child is in, online or in-home tutoring could help him or her maximize academic potential. Private tutors in the Phoenix area can assist students in grades K-12 with any coursework they find challenging and can also help with preparation for exams such as the ISEE, ACT, SAT, AzMERIT, and AIMS Science.

Here's a breakdown of AzMerit proficiency rates in the city. How does your student measure up?

Phoenix Test Scores

The AzMERIT is the statewide achievement test for students in Arizona schools. It assesses reading, writing, and mathematical skills for students in the third grade and above each spring. While students are not required to pass an AzMERIT for graduation, they are required to pass a civics exam prior to graduation. The AIMS Science exam is given to students in grades 4, 8, and in high school in order to ensure students meet federal requirements for science educational gains.

Varsity Tutors can help you find a Phoenix tutor who explains course and exam content to students, while also helping them refine their test-taking skills. If you have a student who is eager to attend one of the best schools in the city, you may want to consider one of the following options:

An experienced private tutor can work with a student to get prepared for entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT. A tutor can also help students hone their writing skills so they make the best impressions with their admissions essays. Tutors work with students in a one-on-one environment, as opposed to busy classrooms where students may not get the attention they need. Look at these student-teacher ratios for Phoenix schools:

Phoenix Student-to-Teacher Ratios

Hamilton High School has a 21 1 student-teacher ratio.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Joe in Phoenix, AZ
The student was intelligent, but he tends to make simple mistakes in some areas where he should be stronger. For instance, he would often answer correctly without much effort, but then I'd look at the answer he put previously and notice that he either guessed incorrectly or settled upon an answer that was good but not good enough (typical in reading comprehension questions). I suspect this is because he has only recently begun to work on these tests. As he practices more, he'll be able to work through 120 questions without getting burned out. Also, I gave him strategies to help to make it less cumbersome.

Tutoring review by Mathew in Phoenix, AZ
During the student's last session, we went through four test sections -- two reading, one math, and one writing -- and then concluded by recapping some of the strategies we have worked on throughout our two months of lessons. The student stands well-situated on his upcoming SAT(s). His math is very close to perfect and little work remains to be done there. Reading and Writing are also very, very strong.

Tutoring review by Isabella in Phoenix, AZ
The student and I talked about food, cooking, and restaurant culture in New York. We also talked some more about his various professions of interest. During the last half hour, we translated into Spanish a poem that he wrote recently, and discussed the different choices of words we had in translating.

Tutoring review by Elizabeth in Phoenix, AZ
The student and I talked through her strengths and weaknesses on the assessment test and what work she'd already done. She is very bright and motivated, and already in very strong shape for the test. We will focus on reading comprehension and scrambled paragraphs next.

Tutoring review by Melanie in Phoenix, AZ
We began our session by reviewing the science portion of the test about data representation. The student practiced on two items (a botany example and mortality rates) graphs and tables. He did quite well on both. He then took the mathematics (timed) portion of the test. We finished with a brief online practice of grammar. Great session and great student!!

Tutoring review by Damian in Phoenix, AZ
Covered a math section from the review book, including three different advanced geometry problems, one involving trig (but allowing for shortcut special right triangles) on a map. The special right triangles is not something we've gone over, so this was very productive. We moved on to an English section, only one rhetorical skills question wrong, the rest were miscellaneous grammar questions, mostly commas. Very impressed with student's progress on English. Finished up with an essay, which went very well.
