Mummy says…’ Well, we are really settled into our new routine of school and college – it has been all change again with Pickle moving to morning sessions at nursery school, Lea starting college and MeeMee going into her last year of Uni.
Luke is now in Year 10 and starting two years of GCSE exams. He is a very bright boy, and has always done well in all subjects, but there is so much pressure on children these days to do better, try harder.
Sometimes, a little extra help is needed, and one brilliant way to do this is to find a personal tutor for home t. I did hire a tutor to get MeeMee through her Maths GCSE a few years ago, but it was quite tricky to find one who was recommended and who met my requirements and availability. It can be difficult to find one who suits perfectly though, and that is where a website such as Tutora is great.
Tutora was founded by two guys, Scott who is a teacher and Mark who is a Technology Analyst.
The website has over 3000 tutors teaching dozens of subjects from Primary school age right up to A levels.
Each tutor has their hourly fee clearly displayed so I can see straight away how much each one charges. Their listing shows at what level they teach, and the subjects they teach.
What is great about Tutora is the simple but informative website. I can search for a tutor by subject and area, or view all the areas where there are tutors registered. Click on a tutor’s profile to see a detailed description of them and their experience, their qualifications and which subjects they teach. Their hourly charge is clearly shown as well as how far they will travel. I can message the tutor via the website, and the profile shows how quickly the tutor usually responds.
I can also read any reviews for the the tutor
Another great feature which gives me confidence is that Tutora offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If I am not happy with the first lesson, they will pay for the next lesson with a tutor.
As well as searching by city or subject, I can also fill in a form to request a tutor if I can’t find what I am looking for.
