Choosing a tutor for your child can be hard. Let this honest comparison of the top tutoring companies in Australia help you find the right option for you, and your child.
Looking for a high-quality tutor for your child can be a challenging experience. Do you go with a company, or an independent tutor? Does your child need a qualified teacher, or will a university student be sufficient? Online tutoring seems convenient, but will it be engaging enough for your little one? Group sessions, or one-on-one? The list of questions seems to go on and on!
You should always consider those aspects of tutoring, as well as the style of teaching that works best for your child, when choosing a tutor, or tutoring company.
To make this easy for all of you parents who are feeling lost in the quest to find a great tutor, I have broken down the top tutoring options available, with their unique propositions:
1. Cluey Learning

Looking for a tutoring center that provides group sessions and a rote teaching method? Kumon tutoring centers can be found all over Australia, and provide group tutoring sessions using the ‘Kumon Method’. This method is said to provide students with worksheets that are set at their level, being not too easy and not too hard. They repeat questions until they get it right and display confidence, then advancing to the next level.
Kumon provides tutoring for both Math and English, and has the goal that students become independent learners. The ‘Kumon Method’ is great for a student who is able to comprehend problem solving or multi-step questions, but needs support in completing the given algorithm or equation with ease.
Although it is not in the comfort of your home, it is a great option for parents who do not mind dropping their kids off for a group session.

My advice to you? Go with what feels right and follow your gut feeling. Each of the options above offer something different. Every child has a story, and that story needs to be shared with the company that you decide to trust in. Ask yourself what would work best for your child. At-home tutoring or centre-based?
