Work With The Perfect Tutor For You

We require the most rigorous qualifications of Stamford tutors, in addition to a background check. Only a tiny fraction of those candidates who apply ultimately make it through our demanding interview process. From this elite group, an expert director will help you find the best tutor 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.

How much does it cost to study with a private tutor in Sunnyvale?

The cost of working with a private teacher in Sunnyvale depends on your or your student's unique circumstances, including the level of material to be reviewed, how often you'd like to meet your instructor, where you live, and who you study alongside. For instance, tutoring for a student learning about characterization at Montclaire Elementary School would be a different price than tutoring for a student studying Spanish at Mountain View High School.

Similarly, you may be charged a different rate if you follow a regular meeting schedule than you would be for as-needed sessions.

Some students think that tutoring can only take place in a 1-on-1 learning environment, but many instructors also offer group options to better accommodate a student's needs. Working 1-on-1 allows you to receive individualized attention, allowing your instructor to provide prompt feedback on all completed assignments. In contrast, reviewing in a group offers the unique opportunity to explain concepts to your peers, reinforcing your own command of the material in the process. Both are proven methodologies, and Varsity Tutors provides live classes as an affordable supplement to any tutoring plan.

A tutor in Sunnyvale can help students of all ages and ability levels, so private instruction isn't just for students who are struggling. If you're interested in learning more about private instruction, including what your final cost might be, please contact Varsity Tutors online or by phone for more info.

What are the steps to find a private tutor in Sunnyvale?

If you tried to find a private teacher in Sunnyvale on your own, you would need to make sure that any promising candidate could provide the academic expertise, superlative communication skills, and scheduling flexibility you're searching for. That might sound easy enough, but it can actually be a lot of work.

Why go through the hassle when the knowledgeable Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors will find you a great tutor in Sunnyvale in as little as 24 hours? Our network includes 40,000+ instructors, so we will be able to accommodate any special requests you have. If you are studying Keynesian economics at a local educational institution such as Santa Clara University, we will find you a tutor who has professional experience in the field. If your student is reluctant to ask for help, we'll refer you to a tutor who can create a learning environment where questions are encouraged.

We will even find you a tutor who you can review alongside without ever having to leave your home. Our Live Learning Platform is a virtual study space accessible on most internet-enabled devices, allowing you to meet your instructor from your living room, the Homestead High School library, or anyplace else with reliable Wi-Fi. It includes numerous features to improve your tutoring experience, including video chat functionality and a shared document editor. It also records sessions automatically, so you can monitor your student's progress or go back and review at your convenience.

Is there a variety of tutoring options available in Sunnyvale?

Varsity Tutors has successfully matched students like you with experts in over 3,000 disciplines in the past, and we're eager to find you a suitable tutor in Sunnyvale as well. If you don't understand the differences between plant and animal cells, your instructor can make you a Venn diagram highlighting the organelles that only plant cells have.

If you're struggling with combinatorics, your instructor can provide practice problems beyond those available in your textbook to help increase your self-confidence.

Likewise, a tutor can help you prepare for standardized exams. We will find you expert assistance with popular exams such as the ISEE, SSAT, NCLEX, SAT, and GMAT, whether you're looking for help with the whole test or just a specific section. We will also find you test prep help for professional exams like the DAT, Praxis, and other professional certification tests. The choice is up to you.

A private Sunnyvale tutor can even help you homeschool the student in your life. For instance, an instructor can demonstrate how to grade assignments objectively so your student has an opportunity to correct any mistakes. They can also take a look at your lesson plans and step in to teach more complex topics. Furthermore, registration entitles you to access our Learning Lab, a collection of resources developed by professionals to help you and your student make the most of homeschooling. You can take advantage of informational videos that can further your student's understanding of difficult concepts, assessments to identify their unique areas of opportunity, and more. You could homeschool alone, but wouldn't you prefer to have expert guidance to rely on?

What are the criteria for selecting tutors in Sunnyvale?

Our screening process is among the most comprehensive in the industry, so you can trust that the Sunnyvale tutor we find for you is a truly exceptional instructor. We start by verifying each candidate's academic knowledge and communication abilities since every instructor needs these core skills.

We also verify each candidate's availability so scheduling is never a concern.

We also look for several intangible qualities that our competitors often neglect. For instance, we look for instructors who embrace a modern approach to education because no two students have the same needs. Likewise, we search for tutors who always put their students first, whether that means looking for fresh explanations and examples to help you grasp a concept or providing positive feedback to boost a young learner's self-confidence. We even take a prospective instructor's personality into account because a vibrant personal rapport often expedites the learning process.

The Educational Directors at Varsity Tutors are ready to find you or your student a certified tutor in Sunnyvale today, but the first move is yours. Contact us online or by phone to experience the difference that a private tutor can make for yourself! We look forward to working with you.

Tutoring review by Ade in Stamford, CT
The student and I reviewed both Mathematics and Science sections of the ACT. I had her take two short Mathematics and Science skills tests as a diagnostic of her performance level. Despite certain question types in both sections that she had some issues with, these are definitely her strongest sections. Thus, for the week's assignments, I recommended that she take 1 diagnostic test and practice her critical reading with multiple drills from her preparation materials. I will also send her some critical reading practice so that she can work with it. Our next meeting is scheduled for 4PM on Friday.

Tutoring review by Brett in Stamford, CT
I met with the student on Sunday for approximately 1.25 hours. We practiced diagramming for the games section. She is going to buy some books with a bunch of practice tests in them and I told her to do as many as she could before we meet again. She needs as much repetition as she can get between now and the test.

Tutoring review by Yvonne in Stamford, CT
We began by going over the reading portion of the exam.  The student practiced identifying the six types of questions that encompass the reading section.  We also went over strategies for each type of question.  We then went over some mathematics. The student has a very strong foundation in math with minimal problems.  We ended the session by talking about the essay portion and how to write a strong essay that stands out.  The student did some exercises that will expand her use of imagery.

Tutoring review by Nathan in Stamford, CT
The student and I went over the material on the quiz today. He was very comfortable with the probability, but we had to do the complex set theory stuff more intensely. I feel as if he understood all the material in the end though, and will do great on his quiz.

Tutoring review by Chirag in Stamford, CT
The student had homework due on Monday, which he had completed. I checked through his work and gave him pointers on the problems that he struggled with. This homework dealt with solving equation for an unknown variable.  For Sunday, he is redoing his previous test clearly on a separate sheet of paper without any help. I will be receiving an email with a scanned copy of both the original test as well as the redone one.
