Top Tutoring related questions

Hiring a private tutor counters all the pressure and issues in a large classroom setup. Foremost, it allows students to master challenging topics at their own pace so that they won’t fall behind their classmates during the academic year. This one-on-one approach also lets them go back and ask about areas that they find difficult. Private tutoring prepares them to perform better on tests, exams, and other class activities.

The traditional in-person tutoring approach provides face-to-face private lessons at home, at a local library, or any comfortable location. This enables interactive and hands-on activities to take place but in a smaller group setting. Meanwhile, those who offer online teaching use virtual methods and an online classroom setup, eliminating the need to meet up physically. It’s the most flexible option that can be scheduled at your most convenient time.

How often you should hire a tutor depends on the goals and the amount of extra work you’re willing to take for a day or a week. If you only need a quick guide to help you pass a test or submit a homework, it may be practical to book intensive sessions with them for a few days only. But if you’re looking for long-term results, you can set up regular meetings at least once or twice a week.

It depends on the exact services needed and the complexity of the concepts that you need to learn. Usually, a session of 45-90 minutes a day is already enough, but you can always extend it if you are preparing for a big test or performance. If you’re getting a language or math tutor for your child, it is recommended that they only attend shorter sessions as they often lose focus after a long period.

Most home tutors can perform pre-assessment tests to know your current abilities, then take another evaluation after a few meetings with them. Or if you like, you can also identify yourself if the sessions are the right fit for you! A good indicator of excellent tutoring is if they can make complicated concepts seem effortless and enjoyable. It’s also a good sign if you find their learning style fun and exciting.

Tutors must have at least a high school diploma or certificates in the field when providing services for preschool to middle-school students. A higher degree of diploma or specialisation might be needed for uni students. Before you book your potential Tasker, make sure that they are experts in the field and comfortable teaching your age group or skill level. If it helps, you can check their profiles and work history in real-time using our system.

While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, early intervention can be beneficial. If you notice signs of academic struggle or a lack of enthusiasm for learning, you should explore tutoring options sooner rather than later.

In the US, tutor rates vary widely depending on the subject and tutor experience. On average, expect to pay between $40 to $100 per hour for tutoring services, with some specialized tutors charging more. It's best to inquire directly with tutors for accurate pricing.

What do tutoring services include?

Home school tutors discuss tricky or complicated subjects, provide easy learning techniques and strategies, and review and assist with class assignments to improve your academic performance. If needed, you can also hire a private coach to learn a new skill or get better in a particular field. Say, for example, playing musical instruments or speaking in public. The sessions are done either in-person or via virtual meeting space. Here’s a better overview of some services that you can book from us:

Kid's tutor

Kids tutoring sessions include personalized guidance in challenging subjects, interactive learning activities to enhance understanding, and focused attention on individual strengths and weaknesses. Tutors employ creative teaching methods to engage sessions, fostering a positive and practical learning experience for children ages 4-12.

Math & Science tutoring

Like it or not, math and science are part of the learning curriculum. But if you’re falling behind your classmates and having a hard time following their pace, it’s always a good idea to hire someone with the right knowledge and expertise. When you book a tutoring job via Airtasker, a local Tasker can build more effective learning methods based on your current abilities and go over various mathematical and scientific concepts. They can also assist with homework, and provide techniques on note-taking and test-taking. This way, you can be more confident engaging in class or taking your exams. And who knows? It may lead you to better universities or your ideal job! You can hire a Tasker to teach algebra, biology, physics, chemistry, geometry, accounting, and so much more. 

Perhaps you’re running a business on the side? You can also get a consultant to help you manage your inventory, analyse financial gains, or perform other computation tasks.

Language and reading tutoring

Whether you want to become proficient in English or learn a foreign language as an additional skill, you can find tutors or hire expert translators to help you out. Language is a tricky subject, and it’s not something that you can master quickly using self-learning materials. If you want to build your vocabulary, get the hang of accents and pronunciations, or learn complex grammar structures, it’s best to have guidance from a private tutor near you. They can tailor learning practices for you, prepare writing materials, and even conduct fun and engaging conversation exercises without the need to overspend for an expensive online tuition fee. You can book a language tutor for Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian lessons, and more. 

Music & instruments tutoring

Ease your mind from dreading school classes by booking engaging music and instrument tutoring jobs near you! Or if you’re planning to join a choir or band, or learn new skills, there are also highly experienced Taskers who can prepare comprehensive plans fitted to your goals and skill level. Typically, they provide nurturing and interactive music lessons backed with exciting exercises. They can also arrange a small performance with other students to boost your self-esteem so that you can sing or play instruments with confidence in public. A music tutor near you can provide drum, bass guitar, cello, clarinet, piano, guitar, and voice lessons.
