HOW OUR TUTORING SERVICE WORKS
WHY OUR HOLISTIC TUTORING IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN OLD SCHOOL TUTORING
How Does Booking The Tutoring Service Work?
You can contact Stress Less Tutoring by either calling our company number or by using a contact form. We have a usual response time of up to 24 hours. If you send in a message using the contact form, we will send a message to book a time to speak to you about your child’s story.
We see many similar problems, but it’s the stories that we’re interested in. By getting to know you and your child, we have a much greater chance of making a tailored plan that deals with the cause of the problem. So spare us no details! By doing so, you’ll find that the tutor you receive is more likely to be a better fit longterm.
A Tailored Plan
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. To deal with this, we create a new solution for every student we work with. By using the collective thousands of hours of experience at our disposal, we create a solution tailored specifically for your child.
From here, you’ll also receive a client account that gives you access to any lesson notes the tutor has left from a session.
The first session is almost always focused on establishing a rapport between the student and the tutor. It often helps for the parent to be present for the first 15 minutes of these sessions to get a chance to also speak with the tutor. From here, the tutor will look at the student’s previous work to see any foundational content issues. Simultaneously, they will be analysing whether there are any underlying issues that aren’t related to content.
After finishing, the tutor will speak with management to inform them on how the session went. Management will also call the parent later in the week to talk about the session from their perspective. From there, we can make any changes we feel are necessary for the student’s plan.
WE ONLY WORK WITH THE BEST
We screen, train and give support to each and every one of our tutors to ensure you receive only the highest quality tutors available.
There are 3 requirements for every tutor on our team:
PROVEN UNDERSTANDING OF CURRICULUM
Highly knowledgeable in the content they tutor
While not the only important aspect of tutoring, a detailed understanding of subject knowledge is paramount to the beginnings of a great tutor.
We only hire local tutors who have completed their Queensland Certificate, so you can expect a tutor who is very familiar with the requirements and expectations of the Queensland Curriculum.
All potential tutors are tested on their content knowledge during the hiring period to ensure they know the content well enough to teach it. Each staff member is also given an array of resources they can use to ensure they can be prepared before every session.
CONFIDENT COMMUNICATION ABILITY
Able to take complex ideas and make them seem simple
Simply knowing content is worthless to a tutor if they can’t also communicate those ideas to a student in a way that makes sense to them.
All our tutors are taught a methodology of working backward from the initial issues a student has. After discovering the root cause of the issue, they can then attempt to convey the correct knowledge in a personalised manner for the student’s unique learning style.
The beauty of one on one tutoring is that the student has the tutor’s undivided attention and care, and therefore, can tailor lessons specifically to what your child needs.
Warm personalities that help students’ find their love for learning
The Stress Less difference is that we don’t just focus on marks, but the variables that surround them. Our goal is to help every student see learning as the challenge of success, rather than the fear of failure.
To do this, we ensure our tutors are armed with the ability to foster genuine student-tutor relationships that leave students looking forward to every session.
Above all else, this is how each tutor is selected. The core idea of does this person care, and can they show they care for the wellbeing of each student they work with.
