The Best Tutors in Houston

All of our tutors are experienced and have demonstrated success in helping students achieve their academic goals. In addition to our Specialized Tutors, we also offer Comprehensive Tutors. We are able to boast that Rice Tutors is the only tutoring service in Houston that offers Comprehensive Tutors.

Our Tutors:

  • Are college graduates; most possess or are currently pursuing graduate degrees
  • Are results-oriented
  • Come to us with two or more years of teaching/tutoring experience; some are certified classroom teachers
  • Are academically successful themselves
  • Must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0; the average GPA of our tutors is much higher than the minimum requirement
  • Are native English-speakers or speak English with the fluency of a native speaker

Two Types of Tutors

Specialized Tutors have strengths in specific subject areas, such as mathematics or English. These tutors are best suited for students needing help in only one subject.

Comprehensive Tutors are capable of tutoring all core subjects: math, science, English, history, and a foreign language. This type of tutor is best suited for students who need help in multiple subjects. When the tutor arrives at your house, s/he will be able to help you with whatever subject you need to study for that day.

Tutor Training
Before meeting with students, our tutors undergo training. Topics covered include how to make a student feel comfortable, how to approach assignments, and how to present the same piece of information in a variety of ways, depending upon students' learning styles. The training also addresses how to work with students who have learning differences and those who have given up. In addition to the principal training, tutors attend two mandatory continuing education seminars per semester. Experts in our offices are available to counsel tutors through any challenges that may arise.
