Varsity Tutors is an American-based tutoring service that serves only students in the U.S. It was founded in 2007 and is one of the older, more established tutoring services. Originally only an in-home tutoring service, it still maintains offices in many major cities in the U.S. Now that it is also on the web, it has expanded its services. This review is the result of our thorough study of the company’s website, Varsitytutor customer reviews that we found on the web, on-site Varsity Tutors testimonials, and our own contact with the company.

The following is a summary of what we found.

Services and Features Available

Varsity Tutors offers two types of services – academic tutoring, elementary school through college, and test prep for both college-bound and graduate school admissions candidates.

The company offers in-home or “meet-up” face-to-face, online, mobile, and instant tutoring (24/7). Students can set up this tutoring by calling the toll-free number. Or, if they reside in one of the cities where the company has a center, they can call a local number.

The process is simple. Once a student contacts the company, a suitable tutor is assigned, and the student works directly with that tutor for a designated number of sessions or hours. Payment is made to the company which takes a commission and then pays the tutor.

Pricing System and Discounts

Varsitytutors prices are not published on the site. Instead, a student or parent must request the type of tutoring needed, and prices will then be emailed to them. When we placed a request, at the high school level, we were quoted $30 per hour. Obviously, there are no discounts or Varsity Tutors promo codes offered.

Security Level

There do not appear to be issued with security. From all of the Varsitytutors reviews we have read, no one raised the issue of either personal or financial information being compromised.

Writer Expertise and Delivery

These are rather moot points, given that tutors do not actually provide written products to their students, and given that there are no deliveries made, this factor is not important.

As far as the quality of tutors is concerned, the company does publicize profiles of their tutors, and they range from college students to individuals with graduate degrees. One disappointing item here: the company advertises that its tutors come from such schools as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. When we reviewed tutor profiles, we could not find one from those institutions. This exaggeration reduces credibility and is not necessary.

Additional Benefits

We did not find any additional benefits to speak of.


We have mixed feelings about this company. VarsityTutors reviews on the web are mixed. We do not like the fact that they exaggerate the credentials of their tutors. As we completed our Varsity Tutors review, our feelings were mixed too. Overall, our rating is “Fair.”
