Home-based tutoring

Our sessions are personalised to ensure your child receives the best instruction

Providing your child with a home-based or online tutor is a positive experience for both parents and students, in a safe learning environment. Students receive one-on-one personalised tutoring, enabling them to ask questions and to get the help they need. 

Some students prefer to work with others so small group sessions can also be arranged.

The Tutoring Company believes in a holistic approach to your child’s learning, working with your school, specialists, and yourselves to individualise the best tuition to suit your child’s needs.

The subjects that we specialise in are:

Primary Years Literacy:

At primary age levels, we love to encourage all our students to read. We then focus on comprehension and spelling to ensure the student grasps the concepts of literacy and we will engage them to learn specific strategies and techniques, such as organisational skills, to take to school. Any area of concern becomes a focus for each session.

Primary Years Numeracy:

Primary school numeracy builds the foundation for understanding higher level mathematics. The main focus is on understanding numbers and how they interact, as well as incorporating all Australian Curriculum Primary Years Numeracy including:

  • Number and Algebra
  • Measurement and Geometry
  • Statistics and Probability

Secondary Years English:

The major focus in the secondary years is on complex essay writing skills,  grammar, spelling and punctuation. We also focus on the student's understanding of the texts being studied and this may involve further development of comprehension skills. Our tutors also encourage the students to think critically and creatively as this helps to broaden their understanding of the text and to answer complex essay questions.

Secondary Years Math:

Our tutors understand the difference between each Math course: 

VCE- General Math

VCE- Further Math

VCE- Math Methods

VCE- Specialist Math

Years 7 - 10 Math

Our Math tutors work with each student at their own pace, so they can grow in confidence to be challenged in the subject and understand not only the processes but more importantly, the concepts. We work with the students in Years 7 - 10 to build a better understanding of foundation maths and to prepare them for future studies in math.

Our VCE Maths tutors work with students to teach them strategies and concepts that are highlighted throughout the VCE curriculum in addition to focusing on exam technique to maximise marks. We prepare them for VCE Math Exams so they have the tools to enter these exams with confidence.

Assessment:

The Tutoring Company offer specialised assessments for Primary and Secondary aged students in Year 5-10. The assessments offer insight to  any potential underlying learning difficulties that have not yet been understood or diagnosed. The results will allow the tutor to tailor sessions specifically for the student. If assessment results raise particular concerns, the support of other specialists may be recommended.
