TUTORING: Frequently Asked Questions
What are the staff qualifications?
Staff qualifications are located here.
Do you work with students from a variety of high schools?
Yes! We work with students from all over Northern Virginia from public and private schools as well as home-schooled students. Currently we are working with students from over thirty-five local private schools and sixty-four different public high schools in five districts: Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, Prince William, and Loudoun counties.
Do you offer PSAT courses?
Yes, within the SAT/ACT programs, and also within the tutoring environment.
Do you offer GRE/GMAT/LSAT preparation courses?
Yes, within the tutoring environment.
Should parents attend any of these sessions with their students?
Julia Ross works collaboratively with both parents and students to make sure that we are surrounding each student with the support that he or she needs. We will keep you fully informed of your child’s progress and welcome your feedback at any time. However, students should attend tutoring sessions without a parent.
What if there is a difficult student in the class that is distracting to the other learners?
Professional Tutoring LLC is committed to an effective and enriching learning environment for all students. Most students respond very positively and excel in this environment. In rare cases, a student’s behavior might be considered “difficult” and if it is a distraction to the other students, we will work closely with the student and parents to determine the cause of the behavior, and implement a solution. If the distracting behavior continues we will recommend alternative solutions outside of Professional Tutoring LLC.
Are students ever asked to leave the programs?
This is rare, but if a student has to leave one of our programs, we work with the student and parents to find a suitable alternative solution outside of Professional Tutoring LLC.
