If you’re a busy mum and your child needs a hand at school – what do you do? Online tutoring provides a solution for your children and Need a Tutor provides one-to-one tutoring sessions via live video chat with the Tutor of your choice.

So, what are the benefits of Tutoring? Evidence has shown:

  • 98% of learners’ report making significant progress when engaged in regular tutoring sessions.
  • 94% of Learners said they preferred the convenience of online tutoring
  • 91% believed interaction and collaboration between Tutors and learners was essential to learning effectively

Over 70% of our recurring business comes from professional mothers who see the benefit of convenient, safe and affordable option for their children in a time poor household, scheduling these sessions around work, school and extra-curricular activities.

What makes Need a Tutor so successful with mums is the ability to hold these sessions at home without the logistics of hauling your children across town. Everything is performed through the platform which ensures highest security and safety possible.

Simply choose the subject expertise you need, select the most appropriate Tutor and schedule a session. Once the session is booked and paid (all via our secure platform) you can message the tutor as often as possible to discuss your needs. When the session is ready to be held, you simply log-in and ‘enter’ the classroom. The Tutor is not paid until the session is held to your satisfaction.

Most of our Tutors are current, ex-teachers or high distinction university students and we currently have over 50 Tutors available for a range of subjects and skills with more signing up every week.

Feedback from mums has been extremely positive most especially the ability to monitor the session while completing your own work (or cooking dinner!) They also love the flexibility, accessibility and affordability of the site.

Harnessing the latest technology enabling a safe, secure platform, available 24/7, Need a Tutor allows anyone to learn any subject or skill, anytime from anywhere and our agile learning model infused with intuitive technology revolutionising on-demand education and offering micro credentials when you need them.
