Frequently Asked Questions
What sets the TLG Tutoring Centre apart from others?
You’ll be choosing the only tutoring provider in Perth that donates 100% of all profit towards funding Teach Learn Grow's programs that bridge the education gap in Australia. TLG’s eMentor and Rural Program provide free one-on-one tutoring and mentoring to students living in remote and rural areas, and experiencing disadvantage, across WA and NSW.
How is tutoring different from teaching?
Tutoring is different to teaching, because it supports the education and outcomes a teacher is providing in the classroom. All students learn differently and a teacher does not always have time to personalise their teaching style to meet the needs of each student. It is common for students to fall behind in class if they aren’t responding to their teacher's methods.
A TLG tutor fills in these gaps and giving your child a well-rounded, individual understanding of content. In addition, tutors aim to improve not only academic achievement, but also social and soft skills. Our tutors can tailor their teaching methods to the learning style of their specific person they tutor. We tutor students in not only the content required for school, but arm students with study skills and techniques that can revolutionise their performance with future studies.
How is tutoring beneficial?
Tutoring can help your child academically, socially and personally. Tutoring offers personalised attention and learning at your own pace. Tutors work closely with their student in order to improve on their weaknesses, improve their self-confidence and improve attitudes and motivation towards schooling and study.
How long are tutoring sessions?
Tutoring sessions can be any length agreed to with the tutor, but the most effective sessions are between 1 and 2 hours. Having lessons at least an hour long gives the tutor more flexibility to target a broader range of priorities in the student’s learning. Keeping lessons under 2 hours can also be important, as students may burn out or lose focus after paying attention for so long.
If either party is travelling far, longer lessons are always easier to schedule, and our tutors are trained to give students minimal but impactful breaks to maintain focus.
The TLG Tutoring Centre recommends sessions with our tutors of at least 1.5 hours.
What if I don’t have a group of friends to be tutored with?
We can place you in a group of like-minded students at a similar level that is close to your location.
Where do I go for group tutoring?
Group tutoring can take place at your home or a at a nearby public place of choice.
