Private tutoring is a growing business. However, it is also an area where parents can be vulnerable to bogus offers and misleading advertising. Tutors should be effective communicators. They should instil conﬁdence in the student and work in partnership with schools.
If you are considering using a tutor, ensure you ﬁnd out how to get the best service for you and your child.
Questions you should be asking:
- How long has the tutoring service been in business?
- Do they belong to a relevant industry association with an enforceable code of conduct?
- What qualifications and experience do the tutors have?
- Are the tutoring programmes applicable to the New Zealand Curriculum?
