Can you believe it’s almost September!?! First day of school outfits, packed lunches, backpacks full of crisp new folders and freshly sharpened pencils, and a clean slate of academic opportunity! Varsity Tutors is here to help ease your student back into the school year and to help them put their smartest foot forward.
Is your child in a large class size at school? Would s/he benefit from some added personal one-on-one attention to help them through some of their more challenging subjects?
Serving all of the Los Angeles Metro area (which includes Orange County), Varsity Tutors works closely with students and their families to provide elite, one-on-one tutoring instruction that helps students reach their academic goals. To start, they assess the specific student’s needs, select the best fitting tutor, and then monitor the student’s progress over time.
Varsity Tutors emphasize a positive learning atmosphere through engaging, personalized lessons, presented in the most easy to understand way to keep the students motivated on their road to success.
They are serious about the screening and qualification process when selecting their tutors, looking for:
Exceptional teaching skills demonstrated during thorough, in-person interview
Demonstration of expert-level knowledge of subjects during interview
Excellent communication skills
Ability to develop and teach individualized learning plans
High test scores (they verify them)
High grades (they verify them, too!)
Prior teaching and mentoring skills or credential
Friendly and personable demeanor
They have turned down potential tutors with perfect test scores because they weren’t effective enough at communicating difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner!
What I love is you can scroll through the available tutors on their site and see their picture, read a personal message from them and learn about their educational background to get a feel for your tutor before you meet them.
Then your Tutor will come to you in the comfort of your own home, or your can choose to meet at a library or anywhere else you find convenient.
