FAQs

Is feedback given on my child’s progress?

Yes, after every lesson I will talk to you about the progress your child has made, listen to any concerns that you may have and discuss how we can develop your child’s learning in the coming weeks.

 

Research shows that outcomes are better if parents are involved in their children’s development and regular feedback is invaluable for you, your child and I.

 

Is homework given?

I always provide homework to reinforce the topic taught during the lesson

 

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes. As long as you give me at least 24 hours notice (except in an emergency situation) I will not charge for any missed lessons. Catchup lessons are available if you need to cancel with me.

 

What areas do you teach in?

Basildon, Benfleet, Hadleigh, Rayleigh, Leigh-on-Sea, Westcliff, Southend-on-Sea, Thorpe Bay, Shoebury. If your area is not listed please still contact me as it may still be within range for me to travel to you.

 

Do you accept Childcare Vouchers/Working Tax Credit?

Currently we do not but we are going to be accepting them hopefully very soon!

 

Are references available?

I can provide references from other teachers, parents and I am DBS checked (previously CRB).

 

When are your teaching hours?

Monday to Friday from 3.45pm to 8pm and Saturday from 9am to 5pm. During these hours it will be very hard to get hold of me so please leave a voicemail, text or email for me to get back to you later.

 

How long do lessons last for?

Lessons last for exactly one hour. If your child needs more than one hour a week I can offer a second lesson later in the week (more than an hour of teaching is not recommended).

 

Where do you do your tutoring?

Mostly in the privacy of your own home (I do not teach children without an adult present in your home) or at a public neutral venue like a library.

 

How much do you charge?

£30 per hour or ten lessons for £250 (that’s a £50 saving). Siblings receive a 40% discount on all my rates. All lessons are charged in advance. We will also be accepting very soon childcare vouchers and if you receive working tax credits you can use the childcare element of your working tax credit to get up to 70% of the childcare costs you’re claiming, for up to a maximum of £175 per week for 1 child and £300 a week for 2 or more children.
