FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an introductory session ?
How can the connection be strengthened ?
Rather than relying on Wi-Fi alone, we encourage students to link their computer to the hub / router via an Ethernet cable. This makes the connection more reliable.
How do I get started with tutorials?
After the introductory session, confirm that your child is happy to proceed and pay for the first block of 6 tutorials. You can liaise with the tutor directly to schedule your sessions when suits.
Will there be an assessment?
An informal assessment of each student is integrated into part of the first session and is included in the hourly rate. Following this, the tutor will organise a programme of study to fit the needs of the student, always with the end goal in sight.
How quickly can I start?
This depends slightly on the tutor availability in your chosen subject but, all things being equal, you should be able to start within a week.
Who are the tutors?
Prep School Tutors are all qualified teachers, expert in their chosen subjects and with relevant experience. We recruit using the Times Educational Supplement (TES), which is the go-to job search paper for teachers and has an excellent reach. All candidates are interviewed, undergo a lesson observation and 2 references are required. We are open to applications at any time but the vetting process is the same.
What happens if I run out of credit?
Tutorials are purchased in blocks of 6 tutorials in any one subject. When this credit is coming to the end, Prep School Tutor will notify you. If happy to continue, an invoice will be sent so that you can top up the credit before the next tutorial.
Should I use a headset or headphones?
What happens if tutorials do not go as expected?
We believe that you should only pay for products and services you have received. We consider it fair that, if tutors have done their utmost to teach a student, they should receive payment. We also understand that sometimes tutorials do not go as expected, hence the Prep School Tutor Money-Back Pledge.
How do I keep my child safe online?
For all students, we have child safety policies and procedures in place that fully reflect industry best practice on safeguarding. As the website develops, we continue to consult with independent child safety specialists. Students, be safe: If a conversation doesn’t feel right, don’t keep it to yourself, tell someone straight away.
