The Good

  • Student-Centered Approach
  • In-Person and Online Tutoring

Student-Centered Approach

Before creating each student's tailored learning plan, Plato Tutoring analyzes their learning strengths and weaknesses. 
First, a tutor will determine the student's skill level, to understand their strong and weak points concerning the subject matter. Then, they make a plan to achieve the student's goals. 

In addition to helping academically, tutoring services offer helpful techniques to help students gain confidence in their academic skills and reduce stress levels both during exams and in everyday life. 

In-Person and Online Tutoring

With Plato Tutoring, in-person sessions are available to local customers, but this is limited to the local radius, which you can see on Plato's website. The following major towns are within the service area:

New Jersey Areas New York Areas
  • Edison
  • Morristown
  • Newark
  • Parsippany
  • Piscataway
  • Brooklyn
  • Manhattan
  • Queens
  • Staten Island
  • The Bronx

In addition to traditional in-person tutoring sessions, Plato Tutoring Services offers online tutoring services for people located around the country and the world. For those who are wary of whether online tutoring is going to be helpful, each new customer's first hour of tutoring is covered by a 100 percent money-back guarantee.


The Bad

  • Limited Subject Areas

Limited Subject Areas

Unfortunately, if you or your child need tutoring in multiple non-STEM subjects as well as math, you won't be able to get all of your tutoring needs met with just this one tutoring agency. While this may be a minor inconvenience, especially if you are working with online tutoring, it may depend on whether you want to employ specialists or just one general-knowledge tutor.


The Bottom Line

Plato Tutoring Services is run by an experienced tutor, with a tested teaching format. With Plato, online tutoring is available to students and learners from first grade through college, including the standardized test prep for those SATs or MCATs. In addition to that, local students can decide to get in-person tutoring, if they desire. 

Customers can schedule sessions lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours. Sessions range in price from $35 to $85 an hour, though you will have to contact Plato for an exact quote.
