Hi, I am looking to get some advice and recommendation on getting a private tutor for my kids who are in primary school at the moment. I am looking for a tutor who is able to come home and provide private tutoring for English and maths. Does anyone have any recommendations. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What’s Your opinion?

Hello,

Our two were attending a group tutor each week and when we moved I did some research (well googled) looking for a tutor who could come to the house and who could help with both maths and English.
I came across a site called Tutor Finder and through that Shane. Shane has been tutoring both daughter 13 and son 12 since the start of the year. He is great with them both and keeps them interested and focused and we have seen a marked improvement in both with their understanding and grades in both subjects. Our daughter has trouble focusing and is easily distracted but Shane has, through his experiences and views on learning taken an individual approach to both and it has certainly worked! His details and background can be found at – http://www.tutorfinder.com.au/tutor/shanemartin.php
Shane is $80 an hour which seems to be one of the higher amounts to pay per hour, however when I look at the fact that we were paying nearly the same amount for group tutoring (five to six kids in each group) and Shane comes to our house (always punctual too btw) I am glad we found him!
p.s. I am not a tutor and thus the reason the children have one, so by all mean RiotACTers correct my spelling and grammar mistakes in this, as I am sure there will be some 😉

Hi Hkc1980

I would be glad to offer my services to your family. I have previously been appointed as the house tutor of my high school, a residential academic tutor during university, and worked in the university library as an IT skills tutor and in the School of Medical Sciences as a casual academic tutor. My UAI was 99.7, graduating in third place at my school and achieving a top 5 result in my Yr 11/12 Advanced Mathematics course.

However, I do not have any experience in tutoring at primary school level. I attended the Kumon teaching centres during primary school however, and have an excellent mathematics and grammatical/analytical English framework to work from.

If you are interested in contacting me, please email: blackandsazerac at gmail dot com.
