San Mateo Tutoring FAQ

How much does Varsity Tutors cost for students in San Mateo?

The amount you will pay to study with a tutor for students in San Mateo will depend on your specific learning needs. For instance, sessions for a high school student preparing for the ACT or SAT at The Nueva School may cost a different amount than sessions for your elementary school student struggling with basic science concepts.

The number of sessions you or your student need can affect the price per session. If your student needs continuous sessions throughout their entire math course, it may cost less per session than it would for you to take a handful of sessions to review before you take the LSAT.

Recent San Mateo Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Joseph in San Mateo, CA
The student began by asking for help completing the questions for his Article of the Week assignment. After going over the article together and coaching him towards the answers, we finished defining the new vocabulary list which we began last week. As usual, he was familiar with some of the words already, which helped keep us going at a strong pace. Finally, I questioned him on the new words from last week; he remembered many of them, but forgot a few. This will improve with time, of course.

Tutoring review by Jasmine in San Mateo, CA
I corrected the English practice test the student had completed, and his score was much improved from the ACT he took! He is better with the rhetoric questions than the ones on grammar and usage, so I will bring some exercises for us to do on the latter next time. We spent the rest of the time doing math problems. I asked the student to complete a math practice test before our next session.
