Feedback

"Celeste het ons GR7 seun ondersteun in Afrikaans, Engels en Wiskunde. Hy het veral met Wiskunde gesukkel en in twee maande het sy Wiskunde punt geklim van 56% na 74%. Wow, ek het sommer trane in my oë gekry die dag toe sy meneer my email en ons gelukwens met sy toetspunt. Dit was altyd lekker om haar in ons huis te hê, so vriendelik en sommer opgewonde vir my seun se leerles. Sy het altyd die ekstra myl gegaan, en hier was ekstra kleur plakkate en wiskundige 2D en 3D vorms gebou uit papier. Die dag toe sy Upington toe trek, toe sak my moed in my skoene, want waar en hoe nou kry ek weer so n tutor in die hande? Ons wens haar alle voorspoed toe vir hul nuwe lewenspaadjie wat hul stap in Upington en weet sy gaan n groot aanwins wees v Upington se leerders wat n goeie tutor soek. Amelia, Durbanville."

"We were looking for a tutor for my daughter(grade 8). We wanted someone special that would treat my daughter like family yet still be a teacher. Oh my word were we blessed with finding Celeste. Our daughter absolutely adores her. She took her maths from 37% to 75% in three months.Not only did she take a personal interest in her grades she took time to get to know her at a deeper level. Any child lucky enough to be tutored by Celeste will benefit in many ways. Thank you Celeste. Spies family Durbanville."

"Tannie Celeste het my so baie gehelp met wiskunde, afrikaans en engels. My wiskunde punte het van 52 persent na 76 persent gestyg en al my hoofvakke het ook gestyg. Juffrou Celeste het huiswerk en leerwerk lekker gemaak. Ons het 'n klomp maniere gekry om alles te beantwoord vir al die hoofvakke. Sy was die beste juffrou ooit."

Why do parents hire a tutor?

In times like these, more and more parents see the value and importance in hiring a tutor for their kids. We as tutors can introduce personalized methods of training by explaining difficult instructions in a way a child can understand better than they can in a classroom. An increasing number of parents come to realize that the value of one-on-one tutoring that a child will get form their personal tutor is often priceless.

What to look for when choosing a tutor?

Do they have an encouraging attitude?
A tutor should always be able to keep a child motivated, explain difficult subject matter in an uncomplicated and understandable way and also build a good relationship with your child. This is one of the reasons why I personally prefer a meet-and-greet before tutoring sessions start. Tutors should know when to praise and make sure your child never feels like a failure. The parents and tutor should connect after a few sessions to give parent a clear picture. This also brings us to the next point.

Do they offer feedback?
A tutor should always offer feedback. Whether your tutor leaves a small note at the end of the lesson, an informal chat, a quick call or a report, feedback is important so that you know how well your child is doing and whether your tutor is getting the results you want.

Are they within reach?
Make sure they are a reasonable distance from your home.. With today's technology you also have the option of online lesson via Zoom but just bear in mind what suits your child best and make sure the tutor can fulfill your needs.

Are they flexible?
Can your chosen tutor work around your and your child's schedule? Are they going to keep to the diary plans you have made with them? Only time will tell, but it's a great idea to clear this up before you hand over your first payment.

Are they affordable?
You should consider how much you can afford or how much you are willing to pay before you begin your search. Tutors can generally charge anything from R150 per hour to R250 per hour.

Are they punctual?
You will be paying for a certain amount of time each lesson whether it be 30 minutes, 45 minutes or an hour. Your tutor should arrive on time to start the lesson and finish at the discussed time. You don't want a tutor that shows up 10 minutes late but still finishes at the time they were meant to; you won't be getting your money's worth. My personal rule is, "If you're on time, you're late."

Are they approachable?
It is fundamental that the tutor you choose for your child is approachable in the way that they are open to discussing the needs of your child and will set aside the time to do so. You need to know that you can ask any questions you may have, ask for feedback you may want and deliberate any problems you may foresee.

Waarom huur ouers 'n tutor?

In tye soos hierdie sien al hoe meer ouers die waarde en belangrikheid daarvan om 'n tutor vir hul kinders te huur. Ons as tutors kan verskillende metodes van leiding aanbied deur moeilike instruksies te verduidelik op 'n manier wat 'n kind beter kan verstaan as in 'n klaskamer. Al hoe meer ouers besef dat die waarde van 'n individuele tutorskap wat 'n kind in hul persoonlike tutor kry, dikwels onskatbaar is.

Waarna om te kyk wanneer u 'n tutor kies?

Is hulle 'n bemoedigend?
'n Tutor moet altyd in staat wees om u kind gemotiveerd te hou, moeilike onderwerpe op 'n ongekompliseerde en verstaanbare manier te verduidelik en ook 'n goeie verhouding met u kind te bou. Dit is een van die redes waarom ek persoonlik 'n ontmoeting verkies voor die tutoriaalsessies begin. Tutors moet weet wanneer om te loof en sorg dat u kind nooit soos 'n mislukking voel nie. Die ouers en tutor moet na 'n paar sessies kontak maak om 'n duidelike beeld vir die ouer te gee hieroor. Dit bring ons ook na die volgende punt.

Bied hulle terugvoering?
'n Tutor moet altyd terugvoering gee. Of hulle nou aan die einde van die les 'n nota los, 'n informele geselsie, 'n vinnige oproep of 'n verslag, terugvoering is belangrik sodat u weet hoe dit gaan met u kind en of u tutor die resultate kry wat u na soek.

Is hulle binne bereik?
Sorg dat hulle 'n redelike afstand van u huis is. Met die hedendaagse tegnologie het u kind ook die opsie om aanlyn via Zoom les te ontvang, maar hou in gedagte wat u kind die beste pas en sorg dat die tutor aan u behoeftes kan voldoen.

Is hulle buigsaam?
Kan u gekose tutor om u kind se skedule werk? Gaan hulle hou by die dagboekplanne wat saamgestel is? Net die tyd sal leer, maar dit is 'n goeie idee om dit op te ruim voordat die eerste betaling oorhandig word.

Is hulle bekostigbaar?
U moet oorweeg hoeveel u kan bekostig of hoeveel u bereid is om te betaal voordat u met u soektog begin. Tutors kan gemiddeld enigiets van R150 per uur tot R250 per uur hef.

Is hulle stiptelik?
U betaal elke les vir 'n sekere tyd, of dit 30 minute, 45 minute of 'n uur is. U tutor moet betyds arriveer om die les te begin en op die besprekingstyd klaar wees. U wil nie 'n tutor hê wat tien minute laat opdaag nie, maar nogtans klaar is op die tydstip waarop hulle bedoel was; jy sal nie jou geld werd kry nie. My persoonlike reël is, "As jy op tyd is, is jy laat."

Is dit bereikbaar?
Dit is uiters belangrik dat die tutor wat u kies vir u kind oop vir die bespreking van die behoeftes van u kind en die tyd daaraan sal afstaan. U moet weet dat u enige vrae mag vra, om terugvoering te, en enige probleme wat u mag voorsien, kan bespreek.
