Tutoring Especially For Home-Schoolers

Avg response < 7 hrs
I have been tutoring children since 1980. I love doing it and have had a lot of success teaching children. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy our lessons too. I have a great deal of respect for homeschooling and prefer tutoring those who are home-schooled. I am very good with shy or nervous children. I'm also good with children who have become discouraged and dislike doing schoolwork. I have 11 students I'm tutoring now, from my youngest student who is 4 years old, up to one who is 15 years old (I've been helping the 15-year-old since he was 10), and one adult guitar students. My after-school hours and weekends are quite full now, so I'd like to get homeschooling students or children I can work with during the day some other way.

Mr. Rick has been our children tutor for almost 1 year and I can't say enough how amazed we are by his patience, teaching style and empathy. Our 7 year old became a first grader that loves to read and write stories for fun. He was also a tremendous help with math and phonics. After a few months, our 4 years old was so excited by all the work her big brother was doing with Mr. Rick, that she he started to teach her a few minutes here and there and now she is a pre-K able to read K-1st grade books! It's not just about the academics, but the motivation and work ethics that Mr. Rick helped to instill in our children. I would strongly recommend him to any family looking for a private teacher. Kudos to Mr. Rick!

Private English Tutor

Avg response < 11 hrs
I began my official tutoring job at Sierra College as an English/ writing tutor. I helped my peers review and organize their essays and made sure it was written in the correct format; MLA and APA. After a year of tutoring at Sierra College Tutor Center, I began tutoring kids privately in their homes. I have tutored 1st grade- 8th grade Language Arts levels. I still tutor children privately and I am now hired as an online English teacher for kids. I teach international students how to speak English. I have received a TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). I have an Associate's Degree in General Business.

Victoria is amazing!! We could not be happier with the help she's brought into our home for both Tutoring and child care . Victoria is great about scheduling / communicating dates and times , which I feel is always so hard when having multiple kids who are active . Academically and socially she has been a great asset to our three kids weekly after-school regimen . I love that she is also CPR certified as that was a very important element with leaving our kids ages 8,6 and 5 alone with her. Third grade comes with lots of new academic milestones and since having Victoria as a tutor we have seen great improvements in our child's attitude and work. She is thorough in what she does and loves to work with kids. I would definitely recommend her .

FAQs for finding tutors

How much should you pay a tutor?
If you’re looking to hire a tutor, the cost will depend on what tutoring option you choose. If you go with a private tutor, expect to pay $30 to $40 per hour for a high school student and up to $85 per hour for an experienced, certified teacher. An online tutor or tutoring agency or center can run a bit higher, but there are also reduced-cost or free tutoring options available.
How do you find a tutor?
If you’re in the market for a tutor, there are several places to start your search. You can find a tutor that fits your needs on Care.com, ask for private tutor recommendations at your child’s school or within your community, or search on online tutor boards. Pick the one that best fits your needs and your budget.
How do you prepare for your first session with a tutor?
Before your first session with a new tutor, sit down and do a little preparation so you can get the most out of your tutoring experience. Whether you’re studying for the SAT or trying to bump up that math grade, it’s important to not only communicate your learning goals and expectations to the tutor but also to bring the specific work you need help with.
