English Tutoring

Regardless of how hard working or capable children are, all will at some point in their education feel challenged. English, a demanding language for native and non-native speakers alike to learn, often causes problems. Yet all need proficiency in this vital subject.

Our team of experienced educators understand how best to find gaps in learning and understanding. Once these gaps are identified, our tutors create a customised plan to get students up to speed and to maintain high levels of achievement.


Why Do I Need An English Tutor For My Child?

Without a solid grasp of English grammar, vocabulary, and expression, doing well in school, work, or life itself grows much more difficult. Additionally, English language and literature are fundamental foundations of our culture.

Advancing in any field requires a basic understanding of how the English language works. Maturing into a well-functioning citizen requires even more than this. Private English tutors can help your child develop linguistic capabilities that boost his or her potential to succeed in any field of endeavour.

Mastering a language, even one's own, requires a step by step approach. Every new concept builds upon the last. Gaps in understanding at any point could undermine precise performance in writing or speaking.

  • Parents turn to our English tutoring services for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to:
  • Students falling behind in class overall
  • Students struggling with a specific set of concepts
  • Students aiming to build on current levels of success
  • The student is not a native speaker of English, and needs more proficiency
  • Assisting students who may have one of several learning disabilities, such as dyslexia

We welcome questions from parents who need to know more about how our proven successful program can help their child.

English tutoring from 1300 HOMETUTOR provides a personalised and effective way for your child to overcome gaps in their learning. With a one-on-one English tutor, your child will receive motivation that inspires them to learn more and improve performance.

What Education Levels Do Your English Tutor Cover?

Our English tutoring covers all of Australia's school age levels, and we can also provide special assistance, for example, to students with learning disabilities and those studying ESL. Each of our tutors are trained to teach English and are adept at motivating students experiencing difficulties.
We gear our lessons towards improving NAPLAN results, and can tutor your child directly, either in the home or via an online tutoring setting.

All lessons are customised to the needs of the individual student and the difficulties they are experiencing. Our tutoring lessons also conform to the guidelines set out in the national curriculum.

Primary School English Tutoring

Our primary school English tutoring lessons provide the support that your child needs to not just keep up with peers, but to actively excel in English. If you notice that your child has fallen behind, our experienced tutors can help. They will work to build both skills and confidence.

High School English Tutoring

If you need a high school English tutor, our selection of tutors can help here as well. Many of our students need help to build a proper skill set in important subject areas. Others need to build on their success to earn better grades or get into the university they desire.

Our tutors bring years of experience when delivering one-on-one teaching sessions. Whether carried in the home or online, these sessions have a proven record of student success in developing subject skills.

English Tutoring for Children with Learning Disabilities

Learning difficulties pose serious challenges for many students. In these situations, our tutors know that building confidence is at least as important as developing the skills themselves. Confidence breeds motivation, which is always an essential part of success.

ESL - English as a Second Language Tutoring

Coming to a new country presents enough of a challenge, but learning the language at the same time can be intimidating.

Our tutors have helped countless children from other countries not only master the English language, but also learn about Australian culture as well.

Regardless of which country your family proudly calls its mother country, we have tutors who can help your child master the English language.

Online English Tutoring

With so many students living outside of major cities, we consider it vital to offer an online english tutoring option. Other students in urban and suburban areas prefer to take our lessons in private without a tutor present as well.

We wish to offer access to our programs to as many students who need help as is possible.  Therefore, 1300 HOMETUTOR aims to provide the same quality instruction online as we do when providing in-home tutoring. Just like our one-on-one services, these lessons are customised whilst also abiding by national curriculum standards.

Students also have access to after hours support via Skype or other video conferencing services.

How Much Does Your English Tutoring Cost?

Our English tutoring provides lessons as individual as your child. For that reason, we must assess your child's specific needs, and how we can address them, before finalising a cost for services.

Factors involved in how much tuition will cost include, but are not limited to:

  • Scope of student needs
  • Time required to provide instruction and support
  • Number of children in your family

We stand dedicated to providing support to as many students as possible. Those needing financial assistance, can apply for scholarships to defer at least part of the cost of tuition. All potential students will receive a free learning assessment in both English and maths. We rely on the assessment to determine the scope of services needed.

English Tutoring Testimonial

"Hi again, after calling you about Kirsty and how she is going I thought I would email you about just what happened with her and her school report. As I said to your local assessor when he came to our house Kirsty has been really struggling for a year or so. Anyway when I got her end of year report from last year it said she was getting d's for maths and english. Well it said developing actually which I was told means a D. So I went up to the school and spoke to her class teacher from last year and she said not to worry about getting tuition or anything because Kirsty would probably always just struggle along getting low marks. I was in tears when I got home because I know she is a bright kid and she should be doing a lot better.When Brian came around from hometutor I told him all that and he said just to focus on getting the right help for Kirsty at home for now and see what we can do. Well that's the reason I rang yesterday because I just got her Report and she got a C plus now for maths and english and her reading score is a lot better now too.

I am really so happy because I knew she had the ability to be doing better than she was. Kirsty has better confidence now when she is trying to do things and she is starting to enjoy school again so that makes me pretty happy I can tell you. 

Thanks very much again and I am looking forward to her next term at school and seeing her results improve again."

Gillian and Marty B.
