What makes YYC Tutoring different from other tutoring services in Calgary?
At YYC Tutoring, we hire instructors who are not only very knowledgeable in their area of expertise but also ones who are motivated teachers who understand that learners come with various learning styles: some are visual; some are kinaesthetic, some are audio and some learn through reading.
How long is tutoring session?
Most tutoring session
lasts for one hour for younger students (Elementary and Junior high school) and one and half hour for older students (High school and Secondary students).
Can I speak to the tutor before I commit to your service?
Yes, we can ask the tutor to contact you and you can discuss your needs and expectations with him/her over the phone.
What if I am not happy with the tutor?
If you are not satisfied and you feel there is no chemistry between the tutor and student, you can contact us immediately and we will assign you another tutor assuming one is available.
What is the background of your tutors?
We are keen on hiring tutors
that have high emotional intelligence skills who understand our students’ varying academic needs and learning styles. In addition, we make sure that they:
- Have solid knowledge of the subject material
- Are patient and flexible
- Have excellent communication skills, listen to their students and coach them based on students’ needs.
Many of our tutors
are senior university students who have strong experience in tutoring other students. Some are graduate students or teachers with experience teaching in their professional’s field.
Can I pay my tutor directly and what is the process?
YYC Tutoring handles all billing and payment. The director will meet with you and discuss all the option and complete a tutoring contract application. The tutor will contact you shortly and set up the first session with you. Remember that we provide 1-on-1 at home tutoring
to the students, if you wish to have the session in an alternate location, it can be arranged
Do you provide the tutoring materials and supplies?
We always follow the Alberta Board of Education curriculum and thus we do not provide or distribute any extra non-curriculum material to the students that does not pertain to their successes directly. We do provide materials that help the students with their curriculum. i.e. practice sheet, old Diploma exam practice sheets
