What to expect from The Tutoring Company
Our private tutoring sessions are designed to teach your child studying strategies that will help develop their confidence
Jenny (owner and founder) will take your initial phone call. During your in-depth conversation with Jenny, she will ask a series of questions regarding your child’s learning, giving her an insight on how to help your child. The aim is to discover if your child is struggling with learning across a wide range of subjects or just one specific subject. This can then indicate the need for any assessments or whether a subject-specific tutor can be immediately engaged.
Understanding why tutoring is being sought is the foundation for developing individualised tutoring and matching the child with the right tutor. Simply determining the grade level at which a child is performing, and beginning tuition from that point, will not necessarily lead to any long-term change in understanding and performance if the underlying reasons are never determined or acknowledged. Grade level assessments will only provide basic performance achievement. Many children will benefit from some form of diagnostic assessment, which is what is exclusively offered by The Tutoring Company.
Once we have completed any required assessments of your child, we then match your child with the best-suited tutor, with a recommendation of four lessons be booked to begin the tuition.
All our tutors have access to a wide variety of resources that match the Australian/ Victorian Curriculum.
Jenny, our director, is always available for extra advice on:
- Further reading strategies
- Homework strategies
- Any further concerns you have regarding your child’s education
We understand how busy peaple are, especially families, and we strive to be flexible. This means that we don't ask you to sign a contract and you can pay-as-you-go. In general, most tutoring sessions are 1 hour, but this can be altered according to your child's needs. Younger students may often perform better in 45 minute sessions and senior students may want 1.5 hr sessions. It is whatever works best for you and your child.
