The Vermont School System

Vermont is one of the smallest states in the country. Just over 625,000 people call this New England region home. Known for its world-famous maple syrup, ski resorts, and celebrated autumn splendor, Vermont is a wonderful place to raise a family. Most students in the state attend one of the 51 public school districts, which serve more than 55,000 students annually.

Parents can easily get extra study help for their students by contacting Varsity Tutors. You can connect with tutors in Vermont who can work with your child at any grade level in any academic subject.

To find out how well high school students in Vermont do on state assessments, review the following chart.

Vermont Test Scores

Vermont public schools keep an eye on how their students are performing through exams administered by the Vermont Comprehensive Assessment System, or VCAS. These include using Smarter Balanced exams in English and math, and the VTSA science exam, for students through grade 8. High school students take end-of-course tests in a variety of core subjects. Many students also take tests like the ACT, SAT, SSAT, MCAT, or others to determine admission or placement in private schools, colleges, or graduate programs. Preparing effectively for any of these standardized exams can be difficult to do alone. Test preparation tutors in Vermont focus on the tests they know best, helping students cover both course material and strategies to maximize a student's score on a particular exam. Tutors also help students alleviate test anxiety so they can perform at their best on the day of the exam.

Beyond test preparation, outstanding Vermont tutors can help your student in specific academic subjects as well. The one-on-one approach of tutoring ensures your child gets the time and attention they deserve to understand subject material accurately. Creating study sessions that cater to your child’s specific needs is one way that tutors can provide a valuable supplement to classroom learning. As students begin to make progress, they may even embrace a subject they thought was too hard for them to understand.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Maxwell in Vermont
During our session, the student and I went over the concept of work, potential energy, and kinetic energy by completing problems from his textbook. As mentioned before, he is a very quick learner. After demonstrating how to obtain a solution, he is able to not only grasp the concept but apply it to the following problems. He also asks very intelligent questions that show he understands the fundamentals. We have been focusing on solving problems using variables only and to always check our units. These two advanced concepts will be used throughout his educational career. Overall, it was a great session.

Tutoring review by Daniel in Vermont
The student had a great session today working on math for his test. We covered a lot of material that would be on his test, including common mistakes he may encounter. He was hit or miss with this material, but understands that he needs to work harder on his homework and his studies in order to not make the same mistakes. In addition, he will finish his homework, which is due on Sunday.

Tutoring review by Darlene in Vermont
Today, the student and I went over natural base e functions and their graphs as well as applying exponential properties such as simplifying exponent, product of powers, quotient of powers, and power of a product. He needed a refresher on the exponential properties section, but he was able to complete his quiz on this concept successfully. He was ready to learn how to graph natural base e functions and asked questions that assisted him in his learning to complete the tasks. We went over homework problems in the book and extra examples to solidify his understanding of natural base e functions and their graphs. His test grades are improving as well as his overall grade in the class!

Tutoring review by Jason in Vermont
Today, the student and I worked on mortgages and amortization tables. She was quick to understand the concept, especially since it is an extension of the material that we covered last week. The biggest struggle for her was in solving for the variable she needed. She would often write her work very scattered, making it difficult to know what operations needed to be done to solve for a particular variable. To alleviate this, I suggested that she take her time with her work, showing every step, even if it seemed monotonous. When she did that, she was much more confident in her answers. We will need to work on developing that as an innate characteristic for her now.

Tutoring review by Donnetta in Vermont
Today, the student worked on a practice exam for her final. This included all of the material she learned over the semester, since it is a cumulative exam. We worked on mortgage payments and finding the cost of items based off of the markup price and percentage. The student had gained more confidence in working with mortgage problems by the end of the session. The student has taken two exams in between our sessions and received an B and an A. I believe she will do well on her final exam. I will be working with her again next semester.

Tutoring review by Darci in Vermont
We worked on how to determine if an interior angle is possible for a regular polygon. We also took a look at determining if polygons are convex or concave. I reminded the student of the definitions. Than convex polynomials have all interior angles of less than 180 degrees; otherwise, the polynomial is concave. Lastly, we looked at regular polygons and how we could solve for the variable if we were given an algebraic expression for two of the sides of the polygon. We would set the equations equal, as the regular polygon has all equal sides, and then solve the equation of the given variable.
