Individual tutors are an excellent option for many students. Unlike teachers and professors that need to focus their time on the entire classroom and teach in a way that benefits the majority, private tutoring focuses on the individual. This can be especially helpful if a student’s learning style and an instructor’s teaching style clash. That’s why the first step at Gold Star Tutoring is learning about the student that is seeking our help.
Tutors in a private setting have the opportunity to learn about how an individual student best learns and processes information. They can then present coursework in a way that is easier for the student to understand, and then challenge them to use this new knowledge in new ways. From Washington State History to AP Calculus, we have proficient tutors waiting to help in any subject.
Our math tutors work on everything from basic to advanced topics
Math can quickly become overwhelming for students if they get stuck on a topic. Our math tutors have several ways to explain mathematical concepts, and not only know how formulas work, but why they work, something that is crucial to understand for some students. Tutors are prepared to teach math concepts at all levels, including:
Decimals and Fractions
Graphing and graph making
Probability and Statistics

Our reading tutor works with Dyslexia
While it may seem obvious if someone has Dyslexia, it can actually go undetected for years in children without their parents or guardians noticing. Because it is a complex that doesn’t present itself in a way that’s visible to others, people unfamiliar with the symptoms may not know what to look for. As many as one in five young students experience a persistent difficulty reading despite good intelligence, motivation, and schooling. Students who struggle with reading, writing, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary growth at their grade level could have degrees of dyslexia. Working extensively with Dyslexic students, our reading tutor is trained in the Orton-Gillingham method and can spot common signs of Dyslexia. Knowing about this problem has transformed students that some people thought were slow learners into bright pupils when they have the chance to realize their full potential.
Tutoring alternative schooling students
Not every student attends public schools. Some go to private schools with a personalized focus area or are home schooled. And others come as foreign exchange students or are degree-seeking international ESL students. These students may face additional challenges because they are not familiar with the traditional public school system like many of their peers are. Whether they’re excelling or need a little extra help, our tutors are standing by to offer assistance. We welcome students of all backgrounds at Gold Star Tutoring and work alongside parents, guardians, and schools to provide the best possible learning experience for each and every one of our students.
Standardized test preparation assistance
The SAT, ACT, AP tests, and college placement exams are important and can greatly influence a student’s career path. Whether a student is struggling in a particular area or excels and wants to do the best they possibly can, our one-on-one tutoring can help. Tutors are familiar with SAT/ACT prep as well as the ALEKS Placement Exam that many colleges and universities around the country have adopted. Our goal is to assist students in any way that we can, so they don’t just get by; they thrive!
