Achieve the success you desire with Calgary Home Personalized Tutoring. From start to finish, we are there for you!
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
All of Calgary Home Tutoring specialized testing tutors are experienced with the test material they are teaching. We will not just assign a tutor who has experience tutoring Alberta math curriculum for SAT or ACT math tutoring. They must have experience teaching SAT or ACT math test material.
With over 10 years of experience, we have worked with a large number of students and their families, tutors, teachers, schools, social workers, and police officers. We know our curriculum very well, as well as requirements for acceptance into post secondary institutions.
Tutoring is all 1-1. We work personally with the students and get to know their families. In some cases quite well. We are providing this service for a reason, and if those needs are not being met it is our job to make sure we fix that.
