Where does tuition take place?

Tuition normally takes place within the comfort of your own home or if preferred, at the tutors' home. Usually tutors will travel to the students home. However, if there is a considerable distance between each location alternative arrangements can be made.

How often will you provide tuition?

You can book single sessions as when required, or alternatively you can block book to receive a discount. Tuition is flexible to meet your needs so please take time to discuss this with your tutor.

How should I prepare for my session?

The tutor will be in touch with you prior to each session to discuss any preparation that might benefit you. This is also to ensure that if the student has any queries, the tutor is made aware in advance so that the student receives the benefit of a full tuition session. The tutor may take additional material along to the session to support the student's learning.

Can I contact my tutor in between sessions?

Yes. Tutors can be contacted via email/telephone if the student has any queries with the coursework they are working on. 

How do I pay for my tutoring sessions?

At present the only method of payment is by either cash or cheque. We are currently in the process of developing a online payment system for the website.
