One of the most common complaints from students is the pace at which teachers present new information. When a student is struggling with a new concept, a classroom teacher doesn’t necessarily have the time to slow down to review as intensively as the child may need. A personal tutor, however, does have the time to discuss concepts thoroughly and present the information in new and interesting ways that are more aligned with your child’s learning style.

Many of the largest high schools in Raleigh have class sizes near twenty students. It’s important to be aware of just how many students may be in your child’s classes. Below you will find the average number of students in a classroom for the ten largest high schools in the city.

Tutoring review by Tanvi in Raleigh-Durham, NC
The student and I went over about 10 math problems from her practice PSAT book. We went over the answers for all of them but only did the ones she got wrong or didn't understand together. Then we took a stab at a practice PSAT from the test prep website, focusing mainly on the math problems. We worked more on complex algebraic word problems and geometry, which she had the most trouble with. For next week, I asked her to complete the verbal sections so we could go over that.

Tutoring review by Belinda in Raleigh-Durham, NC
This was my last day with the student, and we focused mainly on spelling and math. For spelling, this week's test was all about "ph" and "f" words. She did very well with spelling words such as "graph," but she had a harder time with "nephew" and she often switched around "f" and "ph" for the words that she didn't know. For these words we, wrote them down and I had her say them out loud as she read them to me. Because the "f" and "ph" sound similar and she does a good job listening to the sounds in a word when writing them down, she just needs to memorize the ones that have an "f" or a "ph." We also worked on math, specifically time adding numbers. She feels very confident with adding numbers.
