Before you employ tutors, do you interview them?

All our tutors have been screened, not only for their knowledge in their respective subjects, but also for their ability to impart that knowledge and form the relationships necessary for successful tuition.

Our students are tutored by professional tutors who are familiar with the Department of Education / IEB / Cambridge curriculum and textbooks for the class.

Tutor Screening Process:

  • Resume / CV
  • Academic transcripts
  • Identity Document
  • Interview
  • We are able to provide client references.
  • Performance feedback provided by clients.

Our screening process is continuous and once tutors are registered we carry out tutor performance reviews completed by parents to give us further tutor feedback

Do you only offer home tutoring?

Tutoring can take place either in the convenience of your home or at the Goodie Tutors venue.

Where tutoring is conducted in your home, a suitable place must be available. Normally a dining room table is a suitable location. Tutoring should never be undertaken in a student’s bedroom or at any other location not in the vicinity of other adults.

Can tutoring continue over the school holidays?

Yes! Subject to negotiation with the tutor, tutoring sessions can normally be scheduled at any time, including during school holidays.
