Online Tutors During COVID-19

22 June 2020 Quick Guides

A 3 Step Guide on how your Child can break away and advance in learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

If you’re like me and have children to see through their exams, this has your complete attention.

We’re worried, rightfully so. We don’t have a clue on where to start, what subjects to look at or what work to do even if we did. 

So what can we do?

Step 1 –Analysing your Child’s Needs

It’s alright to admit that some children struggle with certain subjects. Maybe your child is more of a creative thinker who is challenged by subjects like Physics and Maths.

Or maybe your child is a more analytical thinker, and they might have a hard time with story writing, music and art subjects. 

So now you have a good idea of what subjects your child has excelled at and which ones they are challenged by. Maybe they’re not a Maths whiz or fluent in French. Whatever they are, create a list of subjects and start there.

Got your list? 


(Hint: if you can’t think of what subjects to focus on, look at their most recent report card.)

Scroll down for Step 2.

Step 2 –Picking a Tutor

Picking a Tutor who can resonate with your Child and motivate them to learn will make a huge difference.

So how can we pick a tutor who is going to get the best results out of your child?

What if your child is naturally intelligent but has a hard time focusing?

Then a more upbeat, entertaining tutor will help them stay enthusiastic about their learning. 

But what if your child has a more curious and visual mind? 


Then a more in-depth and experienced tutor to talk things through and have discussions would benefit them greatly.  

Whatever your child needs, pairing them up to a tutor who will take time to get to know them is a key step to your child’s success.

Step 3 – Paying for Tutoring

Paying for anything during this pandemic and economic storm is difficult so we’ve put together a quick guide on how to find discounts to get the most out of your money. 

So you have identified which subject your child needs help with and have even picked a tutor who you would use.

What now?

Tutoring is an expensive service so not everybody can afford it and those who can, might only be able to afford one tutor for one subject.

But if we revisit Step 1 where we talked about what type of thinker your child might be. E.g. they’re more creative, maybe they’re more analytical. 

So hopefully you’ve have picked a tutor around that. 

If you’ve found a great Physics and Maths Tutor, but can only afford one subject and can’t pay for 2 hours of tutoring… You can always ask for their 2 hour rate.

Do they offer a discount for going with them for more one subject?

You can always ask….
