Frequently Asked Questions
What qualifications do you need to be a tutor?
We partner with tutors who are certified teachers. They have their Bachelor of Education degree which certifies them to teach specific grades and subjects in the province. They have also met certain criteria, including a number of pre-service teaching hours and background check and references, to hold professional certification to teach in their province. To tutor with Teachers to Go, they must provide additional reference checks and participate in a pre-screening interview process.
What is the process of finding a tutor?
You have two options. You can book online here to see the available tutors in your province and schedule a free meet 'n greet, one-time session or ongoing weekly sessions. Or you can call 1-800-428-8164 or send us an email. We can learn more about your child, their learning needs and explain how we can help along with our suggestion about a tutor that would be a good fit.
Where do you offer tutoring?
We offer online tutoring all across Canada. All you need is a strong Wi-Fi connection and a device equipped with a webcam and microphone. We use an interactive online learning platform that allows your child to see and chat with their tutor in real time. They can share their screen, word documents, and even (where available) upload and/or take pictures of their work during the sessions.
Is online right for my child?
Please contact us to learn more about online tutoring to see if it could be a good fit for you/your child. Still not sure? Try a free meet 'n greet session online with us!
Is your tutoring one-on-one or group?
We typically offer one-on-one tutoring because we find that everyone learns in their own way and at their own pace. Our one-on-one sessions enable the tutor to tailor every session to your child's needs and interests to keep them engaged and learning. That way your child gets the most out of the sessions.
Please note that groups can be arranged if requested.
Where is the location of the tutoring?
Since the sessions are online, they can take place from anywhere. However, we do suggest a quiet space so you can focus and eliminate the background noise.
How much do tutoring sessions cost?
We charge by the hour. The rates with our teachers vary depending on the type of support you're looking for along with the grades and subjects. Call us or check out the online booking system here to get a quote.
