The Syracuse School System
The Syracuse City School District serves about 22,000 students in 34 different public schools, and the nearby universities are an excellent source of inspiration to local students. No matter the size of the school district, or the resources it has to offer, some students will need a little extra help. For some, this means extra time with a tutor to catch up with their lessons when they begin struggling with new concepts. For others, it means finding a private tutor who can offer more challenging and customized curriculum to help keep a gifted student engaged in the learning process. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor to help meet your child’s academic needs.

In grades four and eight, students take an exam in science, and in grades five and eight, they take social studies exams.

One of the most significant problems facing public education is the number of students in each class. Even class sizes that are deemed to be small still have a dozen or more students. Class sizes make it difficult for individualized instruction to occur. One of the primary benefits of private tutoring is the opportunity for your child to work with someone who has the time to truly get to know them, their learning style, and their academic strengths and weaknesses.
