The San Marcos School System

San Marcos, Texas, is a thriving suburb of Austin and home to nearly 58,000 residents. The Austin metro area has a population of over 2 million. The majority of students in San Marcos attend one of the 11 public schools in the San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District, which educates nearly 8,000 students annually.

If you find your child struggling to learn a subject or perform at their level on tests, Varsity Tutors can help you find a tutor in San Marcos who enjoys sharing what they know with others. Qualified tutors are ready to help students at all levels and ages with nearly any subject imaginable.

All students face testing at some point. In public schools, standardized testing is often a yearly experience. The following shows how students at San Marcos area high schools score on their state assessments.

San Marcos Test Scores

There are test preparation tutors in San Marcos who can help your child study for standardized exams. The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) program provides testing to students in grades 3-8 to show schools how well they are doing in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. High school students are given end-of-course tests in subjects like English, algebra, US history, and biology, among others. Many students also take tests like the SAT, ACT, SSAT, GMAT, or others to gain admissions to private schools, colleges, or graduate programs. Tutors focus on the tests they know best, providing specific insight into those exams and how to maximize one's score. In addition to helping your student brush up on the content of these tests, a tutor can cover test formats and timing while also giving helpful strategies that work well on these exams.

Besides test prep, San Marcos tutoring also benefits children who are looking to understand school subjects better. Perhaps the most significant benefit of having your child work with a private tutor in San Marcos is the opportunity to receive individual attention and customized lessons that focus on the specific areas causing them trouble. Tutors can cater their approach to the interests and learning style of a student to make lessons compelling and effective. All of this is possible by letting Varsity Tutors help you find your San Marcos tutor.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Amy in San Marcos, TX
Today was primarily an organizational and planning day for the student and I.  We came up with specific strategies to study for each of his subjects and drew up a schedule as well.  We also started putting together a study guide for Geometry.

Tutoring review by Jessica in San Marcos, TX
Today we began our session with the difference between "ar" and "are" sounds.  The student  did a great job identifying these sounds and the differences between them. We then moved on to calendar work -- we practiced identifying days in December and naming the dates. We finished with some mixed math;  she had a little trouble at first identifying whether a problem was addition or subtraction, but by the end of our practice, she was very aware of the plus and minus signs and did a really great job!

The student and I went over a few types of problems on her Pre-Calc Probability worksheet (reviewing for a test). We did probabilities involving combinations, and ones with P(s)/P(f) set-up. Generally she feels more confident about the material.
