FREQUENT QUESTIONS

How is A+ In Home Tutors different from a learning center?
With A+ In Home Tutors, our tutors come directly to you. You don't need to drive anywhere! Our dedicated and qualified tutors will design a program for your child that is based on their school's curriculum, not a pre-determined program that may not relate at all to what your child is working on in school. We will also interface with your child's teacher, if necessary; to be sure your child is on the right track.

Are there any assessment tests my child must take before being tutored by A+ In Home Tutors ?
No, assessment tests (which can cost up to $200.00 in a learning center environment) are not a prerequisite in order for your child to be tutored.

Do your tutors know the Everyday Math and Open Court programs?
Yes, many of our tutors are familiar with the Everyday Math program, a teaching approach that provides “home links” for the student to work on as homework. Many of our tutors can also tutor the Open Court program - reading and math.

Does A+ In Home Tutors supply any learning materials for the tutoring sessions?
We highly recommend that your child bring home their school books or any other materials they are working on in their class that relates to the subject(s) we are tutoring. In some cases our tutors will provide materials to enhance what your child is learning. We will help you attain materials from your child's school, if necessary, or direct you to several resources where you can purchase the appropriate books, etc. Many of our talented tutors can design a curriculum for your student.

Does tutoring always take place in my home?
Yes, we come to you at your convenience. We require that a parent or guardian over the age of 21 be at home for the entire tutoring session. For student's over the age of 16, we offer tutoring at your local library. We are extremely accomodating, so let us know what works best for you.

What are your tutors' qualifications?
Our tutors are full-time credentialed teachers, substitute teachers, retired teachers or honors college students with at least two years of teaching and/or one-on-one tutoring experience. We check all references, obtain background checks and personally interview every tutor.

What if my child doesn't like the tutor?
If, after the first session is complete, you do not think the tutor is a good match with your child, please contact our office immediately and we will assign another tutor.

Are there a minimum number of sessions for which I have to commit and how long is each session?
No, we do not have any long-term contracts, however, we strongly suggest a minimum of four sessions in order to really see progress. The minimum amount of time for each session is one hour.

Do your tutors work with learning disabled or special needs children?
Yes, many of our tutors are Special Needs experienced and/or certified and will be able to work in conjunction with your child’s I.E.P. or 504 Plan.

I home school my child. Can you help me?
Yes. If the student is being home schooled, we will provide a credentialed teacher or a certified tutor, depending on which type of home school program he/she is receiving.

I have more than one child. Can you tutor all of them at the same time?
All of our tutoring is facilitated through one-on-one sessions. In order for our tutors to be effective, and for the students to benefit, we do not provide group tutoring. During the in-home consultation, we can discuss the most cost-effective way for all of the students to be tutored individually.

How long do I have to wait to get a tutor assigned to my child?
After our initial consultation, and forms have been signed, we contact one of our outstanding tutors within 24 hours. We will call you to tell you about the tutor. The tutor will then call you for an introduction, and establish a schedule that works for you. The total process usually takes about 48 hours or less.

Do you tutor students in college?
Yes, we have many highly qualified college level tutors available. College students can be tutored on campus or in the library.

What geographical areas do you service?
Our main focus is to provide tutoring throughout Southern California, however, by referral, we can provide outstanding tutors in any of the 50 states.

Do you provide test preparation for the SAT and ACT tests?
Yes, we will help your student prepare for both exams. We highly recommend that you contact us at least six weeks before the test so our tutors have enough time to help the student prepare. Although we only require one hour a week of tutoring, our experience has been that two hours a week for test prep is the most effective. The rate is the same as our hourly rates for tutoring.

Do you accept major credit cards?
Yes. We accept Visa and Mastercard. We keep your credit card number securely on file and set up automatic monthlhy or bi-monthly payments. If you prefer to pay by check, no problem. You always have the option to change your preferred method of payment... or just call or e-mail us and we’ll make the appropriate switch.
