If you need some extra help with your subjects, seeing a tutor can drastically improve your confidence, skills and marks.
How do I find a tutor?
There are many tutoring agencies to pick from! Just do a quick google search for your area. For example, if you live in Wollongong, type in ‘tutors wollongong’ and you’ll see a number of options. Make sure you check them all out to find a tutor best suited to you (check the price, qualifications and location).
You can also ask your teachers at school for any tutors they recommend.
Tutoring sites to check out that are nation wide:
- Tutor Finder – select the area you live in and the subject you need help with and the site will give you a list of tutors, with their qualifications and pricing.
- Your Tutor – an online tutoring service supported by universities with learning resources. It offers a free trial, followed by monthly payments.
- Tutoring For Excellence – one-on-one tutoring service. It’s price range is more expensive (starting at $45/hr), but ask your school and/or social worker if you are able to receive funding for tutoring, which you can access through this agency.
What if I can’t afford to pay for a tutor?
Not a problem! There are ways to access a tutor for FREE!
Ask someone at your school and go to your local public library to find out about any free tutoring services they may know about.
