University City Tutoring FAQ

University City in Missouri, or U. City as it's known to locals, is an inner-ring suburb of St. Louis. The city is relatively quaint with a population of just around 35,000 citizens. University City is one of the older suburbs in the St. Louis area, and much of the old historical architecture from the city's founding still remains in tact. Additionally, the city is known for having a lot of public space available to its citizens. The biggest of these public areas is Heman Park, which is a full 85-acres of land, all available for the public to explore.

Despite its small size, University City has its own school district, which is simply called University City School District. The city offers four elementary schools, and it currently has just one middle and high school for parents to send their children to. For those of you with students in the University City School District, who are looking to get your children some extra help, finding excellent University City, MO, tutoring online can help them a great deal with their test prep. However, given its small size, University City does not currently have its own college. As such, those of you who wish to pursue your degree, can look into schools in the St. Louis area, which is just a few minutes by car from University City. St. Louis offers many advanced education opportunities, both in the traditional college sense and in the form of many trade schools. Perhaps the shining star of the St. Louis advanced education system is Washington University in St. Louis, which U.S. News ranks as tied for the 15th best school in the country.

You can work with University City, MO, tutors to potentially improve the chances of getting into your dream college.

Besides lush green spaces and historic architecture, University City also offers many of the amenities people have come to expect from a modern city. In the city's northern section, most of which was built after WW2, there is a more suburban feel to University City, and you can find many shopping centers and other newer developments to explore. Of course, given the city's proximity to St. Louis, many of the best things to do in the area will involve making the short drive to the big city. Once in St. Louis, you can explore educational attractions like the City Museum and Saint Louis Science Center. Additionally, Major League Baseball's Cardinals call St. Louis their home, and you can go catch a game at Busch Stadium while you're in town. St. Louis is also known for the iconic Gateway Arch, which is also a great piece of the city for you to see.

With many open spaces and historical features, as well as a great location close to St. Louis, University City is truly one of America's treasures.

Recent University City Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Dennis in University City, MO
European student has completed high school math and wants to improve algebra skills.  Covered much material in 1 session: Set Theory, Prime, Rational, Irrational, Fractional, and Real Number. Started to solve basic high school Algebra problems. However student has not had enough experience solving algebraic equations to be able to assign homework.  She needs to have more tutoring sessions focusing on: what are independant vs depend. variables, constants, distributive and assoc. princ. of mult. and how to solve algebraic equations.

Tutoring review by John in University City, MO
Worked with the student over reflections, mirrors, magnification, etc. Much of what the homework was completely new to her. We talked a little bit about ray diagrams, etc. She seemed to get a pretty good grasp by the time we ended and I think she would be able to successfully complete these same homework problems if she had to do them on her own.

Tutoring review by Rebekah in University City, MO
The student had not completed a practice test, so we worked on  various study and review activities. She started with a vocabulary lessons. She did well overall, though there were several words that she struggled with using in context. Next, she completed a drill/practice set in Arithmetic/Fractions/Decimals/Percentages. She scored 8/11, or 73%. Areas to work on include factor trees and logical reasoning in word problems. We finished by using the learning software to review vocabulary. She completed Levels E7 & E8 today. I will review these and previous words with her at our next session or the session after. The student should complete a practice test before our next session.

Tutoring review by Stephanie in University City, MO
The student and I went over some short answer math questions, as well as critical reading/long reading passage questions. I told her to summarize verbally to me the passages contents paragraph by paragraph. For the reading it is just practice, and more practice. I gave her a take-home essay to do by herself timed (25 mins) and I will grade it and include it in the total score of her practice/mock test. Next time we will begin the practice test, section by section timed.

Tutoring review by Jessica in University City, MO
This tutoring session with the student was prep for her AP Biology exam on Friday. We covered the essay prompts that she could encounter on the exam. For each type of organelle, we found cell types associated with it and talked about how the structure (and placement in the cell) affected the function.  Also, we went over the fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane and how the phospholipid bilayer structure serves a purpose and function. Also touched a bit on integral proteins. As a review, we went over some multiple choice questions in the textbook together towards the end and also did some review on mitochondria and chloroplasts and how the evolution and engulfing of these protists resulted in a double membrane in these organelles.
