With schools returning to in-person teaching, now is an important transition for students who may be taking midterms , trying to pass tests , writing papers , or struggling with homework assignments. Middle school and high school students have the added pressure of in-class quizzes, tests and the upcoming AP exams. Throughout the pandemic, there has been a large increase for in-person tutors due to the schools previously being placed on Zoom. Tutors assist with executive function skills, time management skills, organizational skills, test preparation and all K-12 academic subjects.

Many students benefit from math and science support, as often the more advanced concepts are difficult to learn from only teacher or one set of eyes. Visual aids and hands-on learning through tutoring help kids grasp and understand new topics and boost confidence.

Marin Tutors provides tutoring, not only for academic subjects , but also for extracurricular and college level subjects such as computer science, creative writing, economics, business finance, and foreign languages. During the summer it is beneficial to have a tutor assist with online or in-person courses needed to fulfill high school graduation requirements. The summer is also the optimum time for middle and high school students to study for the SAT, ACT , SAT 2 Math, SSAT, ISEE and HSPT for high school and college entrance. Marin Tutors helps provide that dazzling role model who kids look forward to seeing again and again. An experienced tutor will bring back the joy of learning , build rapport with students and provide the added bonus of increased grades and test scores . As this semester is quickly coming to a close and final exams are approaching , now is the pivotal time for effective tutoring for all elementary, middle school and high school students. We also help many college students with deadlines, tests and assignments too.


Hybrid learning is an environment that allows for maximum flexibility between online and in-person instruction; consequently tutoring may benefit this system . There may be some days when a school’s physical campus must be closed and others where campus is open. Some students may primarily receive in-person instruction, while others receive most of their instruction online. There will likely always be a need for in-person or online tutoring for elementary, middle school and high school students as students navigate this process . 

A good tutor is responsive to the learning needs, capacities, and aspirations of each student. 

A hybrid learning program serves the actual students in each class, regardless of modality and tutors can help them with organizing short and long term assignments as well as study for tests in math, science and English .  In these changing times, tutors should be familiar with online technology such as Zoom , Google classroom and Google docs to help students seamlessly understand and organize their schoolwork. Some kids and tutors are now having fun using Google Meets. Each student may have individual learning styles, differences or challenges. Experienced and adept tutors can build confidence and help students increase their skills. Marin Tutors is one example of a small business that provides in person tutoring, pod teachers and distance-learning facilitators to help students of every age from K through 12 and college levels succeed during academic challenges for the fall school year. Some of the subjects tutors specialize in are math, algebra, geometry, chemistry, biology, science, statistics, writing skills, foreign languages, history and test preparation including ACT, SAT and SSAT tutoring. In person tutoring can help bridge the gap so that students are more successful academically and in executive functioning.


No matter how old the student, a tutor can make a pivotal difference , especially now when classroom teachers are not available in person.

Some tutors also teach musical instruments, such as guitar and piano, while others can be sports coaches and take students out for recess and PE. A good tutor can not only provide facilitation with distance learning, but also teach core skills such as fourth grade lattice multiplication or 12th grade AP Calculus lessons on limits.

Some tutors are foreign language experts in languages such as Mandarin or Hebrew. When talking with tutors, be sure to ask them about all of their multifaceted talents and how they can incorporate those in their elementary, middle school or high school lessons.

There are solutions to today’s educational crisis. An experienced tutor is one of the best gifts a child can receive this fall.
