Tutoring solutions for academic growth

Practical Prep Tutors

Practical Prep Tutors

We are a team of experienced tutors striving to guide students of all ages towards reaching their specific academic goals. Our tutors foster nurturing relationships based on mutual trust with each of their students.

Two keystones of our approach:

• Personalized instruction designed to develop confidence in the given subject areas

• A tutor-student matching process based on personality compatibility and logistical needs

We love seeing our students feel proud of their accomplishments, both in and out of the classroom!


Our tutoring rates vary based on the subject area as well as location and logistical needs of both the tutor & student. The average rate for an hourly session is $50/hr. The frequency and duration of sessions is determined based on the academic and logistical needs of each student.

It depends! Every student is different. Most students meet with their tutor for one hour each week. However, we recommend that these options be discussed with the tutor during an initial trial session. 

Local tutoring can be conducted in the student’s home, the tutor’s home (if preferred by the tutor), or an agreed-upon public space such as the library or a quiet coffee shop. The logistical options will be discussed during an initial conversation with your tutor. Virtual tutoring is offered across grade levels and subject areas. Many people appreciate the flexibility that virtual tutoring provides from the comfort of your own home!

We are always looking for qualified tutors to join our team! We may not currently have a need for your subject area of expertise, but applicants are welcome to fill out an application to keep on file. Contact us through our form or email hello@practicalpreptutors.com for more info.

Maybe! We currently have tutors offering local tutoring in the following metro areas:

Not all subject areas and grade levels can be accommodated for in-person tutoring. We recommend you contact us to ask about the local availability for your student’s specific needs.

Practical Prep Tutors is the BEST!!  Our tutor was terrific.  She worked with my daughter to help her understand and had high expectations for her…but was super supportive!  She did a great job explaining the concepts, figuring out the misconceptions, and addressing them.  She is friendly and just an excellent mentor as well as a wonderful teacher!!
