Top Kids Tutor related questions
Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my kids’ tutoring service?
Some tutors may require textbooks or other reading materials - they can lend or buy the books and other materials then send them via courier. Your kids should have their notebooks, pencils, pens and paper for their lessons ready. A quiet room where they can learn without distractions is ideal. Provide your kids with a computer equipped with a webcam and fast internet connection for remote lessons.
Can a Tasker also help me with my kids’ tutoring business?
Yes! You can book a Tasker to fill in if you’re short on tutors. Make sure to include all the crucial details on your post to match with the most qualified Taskers. You can even hire Taskers that specialise in tutoring for kids with special needs if you mention this. They’ll reply with a free quote; then, you can negotiate from there. Note that apart from this service, you can also hire Taskers for other tutoring jobs.
What should I look for in a kids’ tutor?
Find a tutor with the proper credentials and years of experience. They should have a degree and have proof that they know all about the subjects your kids need to learn or improve on. It’s also crucial that your tutor has the right attitude. You find a tutor with positive traits on Airtasker by viewing their reviews and ratings of former students.
How long does it take to do my kids’ tutoring service?
This can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The time it takes to complete the service depends on how fast they master the lessons, which depends on the number of sessions and how often they study, with or without the tutor. Once your kids have a few sessions, the tutor can give you a better estimate of how much more time they need to master their lessons and complete the service.
When should I hire a kids’ tutor for my child?
Early signs include a lack of interest in learning or studying. Apart from this, your child will need a tutor if they turn in sloppy homework or don’t do it at all and show changes in their personality, such as lower self-esteem. If your child shows these signs, don’t wait for them to get lower grades. Have an honest discussion about what’s troubling them, then offer to hire a tutor.
How often should my child have sessions with a tutor?
Regular and consistent sessions with a tutor can improve your child’s performance. The ideal number of sessions your child should have to reap any benefits is at least twice a week. Having tutoring sessions in two days spaced apart are less overwhelming for most kids, especially during a school semester. You can ask your tutor’s opinion as to how many sessions will work best for your child.

What do kids’ tutoring services include?
Kids’ tutoring services include all the necessary tasks to ensure your kids develop or improve their skills in the 3 R’s of education - reading, writing, and arithmetic. This can include sitting down with you, the kids’ parents, and drafting their learning objectives. Whether you prefer having lessons face to face or getting online lessons for your kid, here’s what you can expect:
Setting learning objectives
Before tutoring your kids, your tutor will ask you which subjects they need help in mastering. Once they know which topics they need to develop or improve, your hired tutor can make a personalised syllabus that contains all the essential lessons they must learn and master. Your kids’ tutor can also use the syllabus to track their progress.
Teaching the 3 R’s
Your private tutor for kids can teach your children the 3 Rs of education - reading, writing and arithmetic. They can teach them these basic foundations of knowledge, equipping them with the skills necessary to expand their knowledge as they advance in school.
Your tutor can use a mix of different techniques like using flashcards for maths, giving out worksheets, showing instructional videos, and using other learning aids. They can also read along with your child if necessary and appropriate for their maths and English lessons.
Help with homework
As your kid will likely have homework assigned to them, your private kids’ tutor can help them complete their assignments. Note that the tutor won’t give your kids the answers but rather teach them the skills necessary to arrive at the correct answers themselves. Your tutor can help your kids practice these skills until they can do their homework alone.
Learning through play
The tutors who use this method understand that younger learners have a lot of energy to burn, have individual learning styles, and shorter attention spans. When appropriate, your kids’ tutor can introduce new lessons to younger students by combining them with games.
They can use songs, rhyming, role-playing, toys and other materials and techniques to make learning sessions more fun and encouraging for kids to learn and absorb their lessons outside the classroom.
Tests and pop quizzes
Your tutor can give a short quiz after each lesson and check if your kid has absorbed the lessons. They can also provide a final exam that covers all the lessons towards the end of the service. If your child scores low on the tests, your tutor can use them to pinpoint which areas they need improvement. Your hired tutor can redo the appropriate lessons, give a new test and again check your kid’s performance.
The tutor can repeat this process until they improve and reach their learning objectives. So after your kids have had their tutoring, why not hire a tutor for yourself? With our platform, not only can your kids do better at school, but you can also find tutors to help you advance your career.
