Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

All Portland tutors possess the highest qualifications. In addition to completing a rigorous interview process, tutors in Portland, OR must pass a background check and have academic credentials verified. An expert director will help you find the best tutor from this elite group; we stand behind these matches and even offer a money-back guarantee.

Exceptional tutors individualize all lessons to address students' specific academic needs. Tutors provide personalized, one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your home, online, or wherever is convenient for you.

How much will I pay to meet with a private tutor in Providence?

Since Varsity Tutors finds you a private teacher in Providence who's got the right combination of skills and knowledge for your or your student's specific needs, the cost of tutoring will vary. There are a variety of factors that affect your final price, such as your academic goals and the level of the subject you're studying.

For example, scheduling biweekly tutoring for your kindergartner who's attending a school like the Hope Academy may cost less than meeting your own tutor twice weekly for intense review of upper-level computer science concepts you're learning at a college such as Brown University. While tutoring is most often thought of as a one-on-one experience, many private instructors also offer group sessions. These are especially beneficial for classmates wishing to review together or to enhance instruction in homeschooling learning pods. Small group sessions with a Providence tutor provide you with the opportunity to share the cost with other families too, and our live online courses are another great way to supplement tutoring in a cost-effective way.

No matter what style of tutoring you decide is right for you, private instruction can make a real difference in your academic performance. Studies indicate that students at all levels can benefit from the additional attention provided by an expert instructor. For a detailed quote, sign up online or reach out by phone. Our Educational Directors will be happy to help you decide which options are right for you.

Is there assistance available to find a private tutor in Providence?

Yes! Varsity Tutors is one of the country's top resources when it comes to finding talented Providence tutors for students of all ages. Because finding your own tutor is such an involved task, it's a smart move to entrust your search to the experts.

In fact, we can find you a tutor to meet with without even having to leave the house. We verify every tutor's qualifications and put them through a rigorous interview process before we consider matching them with students. We've got a network of thousands of tutors who are ready to help Providence students develop a deeper understanding of their schoolwork. With tutors specializing in more than 3,000 subjects, we will find you a tutor with the right skills to guide your unique academic journey.

You can trust that we will find you a tutor who's a great match for you in both academics and personality too. Our Educational Directors consider many different aspects when searching for a tutor, including your goals, your learning style, the level of the subject you're studying, and more. Tutoring isn't just for students who are finding their schoolwork challenging, either. High-achieving students can also benefit from studying with an instructor who can give them more in-depth information on topics they find particularly interesting or help to guide them as they move ahead of their class.

What kinds of tutoring can help my child in Providence?

The tutoring that will best serve your child's needs is completely dependent upon the way they prefer to learn, and each option provides different benefits. One-on-one sessions give your student focused, personalized attention from an expert.

Private tutoring allows for complete customization of a learning plan that leverages a student's strengths and learning style to build a more complete understanding of the subject at hand, whether your student is enrolled in an algebra class at a school like AF Providence Mayoral Middle School or you're majoring in Product Design at RISD. If your student is preparing for college entrance exams such as the LSAT, ACT, SAT, or MCAT, we will connect you with a test prep tutor who specializes in that exam. If you're preparing for a professional certification exam like the NCLEX or Praxis, we've got you covered there too. In addition to private test prep tutoring, we also offer live online group test prep courses.

Providence tutors can also serve as a valuable resource for homeschooled students. Whether your child is fully or partially homeschooled, working with an expert teacher can enhance your own lessons and provide additional help with higher-level subjects. We are committed to making sessions with a tutor in Providence accessible for all students, so our Live Learning Platform makes it convenient to attend sessions from wherever you are. The platform's video chat, the ability to share documents, and archived recordings of previous sessions enhance your student's experience, and the Learning Lab allows you to keep track of their progress. Using subject assessments and tests, the Learning Lab provides you with a comprehensive view of your student's progress so you can see the difference that working with a tutor in Providence can make.

How are the qualifications of tutors in Providence assessed?

At Varsity Tutors, we use an exceptionally thorough vetting process for potential tutors, and our standards are very high. This means that very few candidates are selected, so you can trust that you're working with the best tutors available.

One of the most unique and important aspects of tutoring is receiving customized lessons from an expert. Through multiple interviews and tutoring simulations, we assess each tutor's ability to create lesson plans that address a student's individual needs - and their capacity to keep the plan flexible in order to let students learn at their own pace. We choose instructors who have exceptional teaching and communication skills who can not only pinpoint the source of a challenge but also help you understand the reasoning behind the concept.

Private instruction is an effective way to support your or your student's schooling, and Varsity Tutors couldn't make it any easier for you to connect with a qualified private teacher in Providence. Whether you're looking for a spelling tutor for your 3rd grader attending a school like Chester W.

The student and I worked on reviewing her vocabulary words for her test in school tomorrow. We also worked on reading short paragraphs and pulling out the main idea. I gave the sta sheet to practice this weekend on long/short vowel sounds and providing an example of each.

Tutoring review by Brittany in Portland, OR
The student and I worked on polynomial functions in mathematics today. Next week she will complete all homework problems (they are very long and we could only get through a few this week) and ask me questions on any she doesn't understand. We will then continue on in the material.

Tutoring review by Amy in Portland, OR
The student and I worked on Chapter 7, sections 1-7.  This covered a wide variety of material, including number sets, interval notation, mathematic properties, radicals, exponents, graphing linear equations, and function notation.  We'll be meeting again on Thursday to prepare for her test on Friday.

Tutoring review by Brian in Portland, OR
The student worked on spelling. He has to write the list of words three times. I looked through the list to correct the misspelled words. Also we worked on a worksheet for reading that focused on idioms.

Tutoring review by Melinda in Portland, OR
The student and I continued working through SAT questions. We've focused on long reading comprehension passages, identifying sentence error questions, and easy to medium mathematics sections. I found that her progress had dropped the past few sessions, and we determined that her progress was the result of completing her SAT work during school. I'm hoping that she'll be able to spend time outside of school to complete her SAT work.  Again, she is a pleasure to work with!

Tutoring review by Wesley in Portland, OR
The student and I went over PSAT material since the PSAT was the next day. We worked through three math sections where he had some trouble with seeing geometry stuff, but generally he did very well. We will continue with precal, most likely tangent graphs.
