We offer monthly membership packages starting at $139 per month. You choose the number of monthly hours that works best for your budget, and your tutor will work with you to ensure your monthly allotment is met. The hourly rate for students opting out of a membership is $75. 

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!

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 for more info.

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.
