Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

Every Richmond tutor must meet our high standards for qualifications, pass an interview screening, and submit a background check. From this elite group, a Varsity Tutors director helps pair you with a tutor ready to meet your individual needs – and we stand behind your satisfaction with our 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.

What's the cost of a private tutor in Rochester?

Meeting with a private tutor in Rochester carries a variable cost depending on your or your student's specific needs. For instance, tutoring for a young learner concentrating on basic grammatical rules at Ethel K.

Fyle Elementary School would be a different price than tutoring for an undergraduate majoring in Engineering at a local school such as the Rochester Institute of Technology. Similarly, you may be charged a different rate for a regular meeting schedule than if you only contact your tutor for emergencies. Other factors that can influence the price you pay include your physical location and the size of your study group.

Many tutors offer both 1-on-1 and group sessions, allowing students like you to select the environment that best suits your needs. Reviewing one-on-one enables you to receive personalized attention, as you are always your tutor's top priority during your sessions. However, studying in a group can encourage you to consider multiple perspectives on how to frame an essay or approach a math problem. Both are great educational tools, and Varsity Tutors provides live small group classes as an affordable supplement to either one.

A private teacher in Rochester can help students of all ability levels, whether that means ensuring that a struggling student has the academic foundation necessary to understand more advanced concepts or providing greater detail to keep sessions engaging. Please contact Varsity Tutors directly for a price quote on the specific services you're considering.

What's involved in finding a private tutor in Rochester?

A great Rochester tutor needs to possess three key attributes:

  1. Expertise in all of the material to be reviewed
  2. Scheduling flexibility
  3. Outstanding communication skills
Locating such an instructor on your own can be challenging, especially if you are considering more than one candidate. Luckily, the Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors have a network of more than 40,000 instructors that allows them to connect students like you with a great instructor in as little as 24 hours.

If your student is a kinesthetic learner, we'll find you a tutor who can guide them through home experiments to illustrate concepts such as the water cycle or chemical reaction rates. If you find concepts such as regression difficult to focus on, we'll connect you with a tutor who can use hobbies such as baseball to further your understanding of the material.

We will even find you a tutor in Rochester whom you can work alongside without ever having to leave your house. Our powerful Live Learning Platform is designed to facilitate face-to-face tutoring sessions anywhere with a reliable internet connection, including your home or the Gates-Chili High School library. As such, you have the freedom to choose the learning environment that works best for you. If you have never worked remotely before, our platform includes great features like video chat and a virtual whiteboard to ease your transition. Each session is also recorded automatically, so you can always go back for a refresher on Realist literature or another topic. Who knew that private instruction could be so convenient?

Are there different types of tutoring available in Rochester?

Our database includes certified experts in over 3,000 different subjects, so we will be able to find you a great tutor in Rochester for any topic you're studying. If you're learning Spanish at Rochester Academy Charter School, we'll find you a fluent speaker who can help you navigate all of the accent marks that are seldom-used in English.

If your child is struggling with probability, we'll refer you to a tutor who can use games of chance to make mathematics fun.

A private tutor can also help you prepare for any high-stakes examinations you plan to take soon. If you need help preparing for a Regents on world history or English Language Arts, your tutor can provide sample questions so you know exactly what concepts your test prep should emphasize. Likewise, your instructor can share time-saving tips to help you finish each section of the SAT on time. We will also find you support for exams like the MCAT, LSAT, DAT, UBE, and various professional certifications, so you can trust us with all of your educational needs.

That even includes homeschooling help. You might not think you need a Rochester tutor to help you homeschool your student, but a professional educator can provide invaluable aid. They can review your lesson plans and offer helpful tweaks where necessary and cover any material that you'd like to pass off to an expert. Signing up also entitles you to access our Learning Lab: a collection of resources designed to complement homeschooling. Informational videos can deepen your student's understanding of difficult concepts, while adaptive assessments measure their progress. Why try to go it alone when a tutor can help you maximize the educational opportunities available to your student?

What types of qualifications do tutors in Rochester have?

Varsity Tutors uses an extensive screening process to rule out candidates, allowing you to trust that your tutor in Rochester is a truly exceptional instructor. We start by ensuring that each candidate is a verifiable expert on their subject so student questions can be met with a prompt, accurate response.

We also verify every candidate's availability because nobody likes last-minute cancellations.

We also look for some more subtle traits that distinguish between great and mediocre student experiences. For example, we look for instructors who are knowledgeable of multiple teaching methodologies because they are better equipped to adapt to each pupil's preferred learning style. We also look for tutors who bring great personalities to the table. Many students feel more comfortable admitting when they need help if they trust their instructor, and a meaningful personal rapport is often the first step in that process. Most importantly, we prioritize enthusiastic instructors who are willing to do whatever it takes to help their students reach for their full academic potential.

The student and I have gotten ahead of the class now as we went over the use of the Mean Value Theorem and Average Value formula for Integrals. We finished the practice problem set over the concepts; The student occasionally needed extra explanation of the logic driving the problems, but his use of the actual integration was nearly flawless.

Tutoring review by Carolyn in Richmond, VA
We went over his 4th English test, focusing on ways to save time so he wouldn't feel rushed. Then he did the first passage of the 5th test while I timed him, and went over it. He's doing the rest of the English test that way for homework so he can get used to the timing.

Tutoring review by Meredith in Richmond, VA
We met today to finalize an outline for the student's literature paper.  She has a meeting with the professor to clarify the assignment, and wishes to show him this outline before she begins writing the paper.  She decided on a structure for her paper and I helped her choose which elements and themes she will discuss from each book.
