FAQs

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 the student and tutor meet for an initial session before making the final decision on the frequency and duration of sessions.

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!

My son has been seeing tutors at Practical Prep Tutors for several years now. With the tutors teaching and supporting him with his math, he has also gained confidence in math. He has learned to ask more questions and ask for help in class. He has also learned that sometimes it takes a little more work to complete something, but in the end, the effort is worth it. I love that the tutors communicate with my son’s teachers and me and truly care how he is doing in class. Anytime he has needed an extra session before a big test, they have always been accommodating. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic tutoring group.
