Calgary Home Tutoring Frequently Asked Questions

Achieve the success you desire with Calgary Home Personalized Tutoring. From start to finish, we are there for you!

Do I have to commit to a certain amount of hours or time?

Our minimum amount of tutoring time per session is 1 hour and we don’t believe in long term contracts or the required purchase of large packages of hours that you may not need.

If the tutor isn’t working out for my child can we request a new tutor?

Yes. We do our best to match your child with a tutor who will be a great fit for them but sometimes people just don’t connect. It’s not anyone’s fault, it’s just the way it is. Any concerns with the tutor should be brought to my attention and I will assign another tutor who is a better match for your child as soon as possible.

Sometimes when I have a problem it takes me several tries to finally reach someone who can help me and it’s always a different person. Is your tutoring company operated like that?

Calgary Home tutoring is all about personalization so besides your tutor, I will always be the only one you will contact if there are any problems or concerns.

My child has tried other organizations for school help in the past and they did use Alberta curriculum but also had their own program that they used quite a bit. He found that to be quite overwhelming and confusing. Do you stick completely to our curriculum and what he is learning at school?

Yes, the tutors will follow the Alberta curriculum only. We also encourage conferencing with your child’s teacher if you request that. It is all part of the team work. I am happy to conference with teacher’s as well as the tutors.

Does your program offer flexibility with test prep?

Everybody’s needs are different when it comes to test prep. Some of the questions I will ask you are:

How much time do we have before the exam will be written? 
Has the exam been previously written and if so, what was the score? 
What sections of the test does the student require help with? 
Has the student been doing lots of independent prep or has he/she not started with any prep yet?

Once I have all of the information needed we will figure out together what would work best to achieve your goals.

Is tutoring right for my child?

Tutoring can be beneficial for any student. Working with a personal tutor allows your child to get the tailored assistance they need to succeed. Tutoring is an excellent choice for students:

  • With hectic or overlapping schedules
  • Who require special attention on a one-on-one basis
  • Have bold score-advancement ambitions
  • Learn in a particular manner
  • Are worried or nervous about tests
  • Are distracted easily
  • Have little preparation time before the next test

Is tutoring worth it?

Yes, it’s worth it! The tutoring cost corresponds with the teaching quality and the degree of valuable customer service you’ll obtain. In addition, tutoring is customized according to your child’s strengths, difficulties and style of learning. Our tutors will meet with you and your child based on your schedule.

Is your teaching program tailored to individual students?

Yes. At Calgary Home Tutoring, we understand children learn and process information at their own pace. That’s why we adjust our tutoring programs to them rather than the other way around. This process allows for a better learning environment for your child and enables progress to occur more quickly.

What subjects do your tutoring services cover?

At Calgary Home Tutoring, we cover the multiple levels of the four primary subjects taught from elementary to high school:

  1. Math
  2. Science
  3. Language arts
  4. Social studies

If I have any other questions or concerns not answered here, who can I contact?

Our commitment to high-quality customer service is a priority. If you have a question or concern your tutor cannot answer, or that isn’t answered here, contact us directly by:
