"the two tutors we had were great and both of our children felt they had benefitted a lot from having the one to one sessions. Each of the tutors were friendly, helpful and were good at explaining the subject clearly. Thanks for your help!"

When do I pay? - You will be invoiced directly by Edinburgh Tutors on a monthly basis, at the end of each calendar month. There are no other charges or extras.
How much will I need? - First of all, we will listen to you and find out what help is needed, then tailor tuition based on the following possibilities:
- 1 hour per week per subject: Hourly sessions are mainly used at Primary level or if a tutee feels the 1.5 hour session is too much.
- 1.5 hours / week per subject : We've found this to be the optimum formula for successful tuition, and it suits most students. The timing is long enough to cover a lot of new ground each session, and weekly sessions mean that the course is intensive while leaving time for the student's other commitments.
- 2 hours / week per subject : If starting tuition from January onwards, or if your child is really lacking confidence, we'd recommend this more intensive programme.
The length of each session depends on your child's needs and of course your budget. You determine the optimum with the Tutor. There is never any pressure to sell you it's not the way we work (the only extra we would request is your honest feedback).
Is it flexible? - We fully appreciate that sometimes you may need to miss a session, and here of course we are flexible: your tutor will try to re-arrange a time to suit you. We set no rules about this but rather we trust that our clients will let us know in good time any changes they wish to make.
Are there any other charges for materials, travel, homework setting/marking, past papers etc? - No
Tuition with Edinburgh Tutors is therefore built around weekly sessions to maximise learning and commitment from the student. Around an hour's homework will be set per subject per week. Homework can be varied to suit the student's workload. The length and frequency of sessions can be arranged with the Tutor directly, as he or she will be best to give you suggestions after meeting your child and assessing their ability.
We're sure that like our parents and students (read what parents and students say), you will find tuition with us to be an invaluable boost to your child's confidence and education.
