Private Tutoring In-Home or at Houston’s Rice Village2023-04-14T16:00:05-05:00

Private Tutoring In-Home or Office

We are Houston’s most brilliant, experienced, and professional tutors. Our private tutors can help with almost any academic need from homework help to AP Calculus and standardized tests like the ISEE, ACT, and SAT. We also offer foreign language tutoring in most major languages including Spanish, Mandarin, French, and Latin.

Tutors can meet with students in-office, in-home, and even remotely using advanced online meeting software. Sessions can be 1-to-1 or held in small groups.

Parents usually have one of three goals in mind with subject tutoring:

  1. Maintain existing grades and goals
  2. Remediate poorer grades and skills
  3. Enrich skills and get ahead

To gauge student progress and provide sufficient practice, our tutors leverage both school-provided resources and our custom curricula.

For the utmost convenience, let our tutors come to your home. We drive to most homes within a 10-mile radius of our Rice Village office including West University, Bellaire, River Oaks, Galleria, Memorial, Heights, and Montrose.

Types of Private Tutoring

For the precocious student who wants to get ahead or is not sufficiently challenged in school, we can custom tailor a curriculum.

We typically meet with students once a week for one-hour per subject.

Sometimes generally referred to as “homework help,” maintenance tutoring is focused on ensuring students keep abreast with their classmates and don’t slip behind.

  • We typically meet for one to two times a week for 1 to 1.5 hours to properly cover one or two subjects.
  • Our tutors will help students get organized plus ensure they’re understanding the concepts.

If your student’s grades are below where they should be, then let our tutors help.

Depending on the current disparity between reality and expectations, we typically meet with students once or twice a week for 1 to 1.5 hours per subject.

Our personal courses are designed with specific content goals for your student’s needs, which can be for enrichment or remediation. Depending on the subject, we use Piqosity and other resources to:

  • review and teach content, such as preparing students for Geometry, Chemistry, or Physics
  • strengthen your student’s reading and writing skills
  • improve your student’s note-taking skills and their organization, planning, and study habits
  • prepare your student for a standardized test, such as the ACT, SAT, or ISEE

These personal courses are structured in 10 or 20-hour packages, and pricing is dependent on the tutor’s hourly rate and a:

  • 10% discount on the hourly rate for a 10-hour personal course
  • 15% discount on the hourly rate for a 20-hour personal course

We can arrange tutoring for small groups when the students are studying the same material. The most productive kind of group is when students are in the same class and generally at the same academic level. Group hourly rates depend on the number of students.

Houston Private Tutoring FAQs

Can you improve my child’s executive function skills?2022-04-22T15:10:08-05:00

Yes, when parents ask this question they’re usually referring to study skills including:

  • Organization
  • Time Management
  • Planning
  • Note-taking
  • Communication

Because every child is unique, our tutors generally find success by helping the student develop and refine the systems that work best for them.

For example, we do not simply hand students a planner and say, “use this,” rather we review different options like Google Calendar, Apple Reminders, and help the student refine the right mix of tools that works for them.

For more learned skills like note-taking and communication, tutors generally leverage the student’s existing coursework to identify current weaknesses and propose corrective measures. Even during summer when there is limited coursework, our tutors can develop personalized assignments to improve note-taking skills.

What are the tutor’s qualifications?2022-04-22T15:00:15-05:00

What resources are needed for the tutorials?2022-04-22T14:47:34-05:00

When helping students improve their grades in school, out tutors and managers like to have access to the student’s online school portal to see grades and assignments.

For enrichment or test prep, tutors use a combination of official materials (i.e. College Board’s Official SAT Practice Tests) plus our original content published at
