Private lessons allow tutors to personalize learning plans for students. Tutors will work at a pace comfortable for the student. With one-to-one lessons, tutors can work thoroughly with students on areas where they struggle with the most.
How Does it Work?
All of our tutors are mobile tutors who are able to provide in-home tutoring services for our students. Tutors can also meet students at a public library at the convenience of the student. Students will meet with the same tutor each lesson unless they request for a change. Because there are many tutors in our network, we are able to arrange a tutor that fits students' busy schedule.
Is Private Tutoring Suitable for Me?
Private tutoring lessons offer the greatest flexibility. If the student has other extra-curricular activities and needed tutors to work along with his/her schedule, Science Tutor Network strongly recommend private lessons. Private lessons are also suitable for students who require thorough explanations and examples to learn science concepts.
Our Student to Tutor Matching Process
Establishing good rapport between the student and the tutor is essential to an efficient learning environment. Therefore, Science Tutor Network puts a lot of effort into matching a suitable tutor for students.
Our network is equipped with tutors who has different teaching styles so that we can cater to the student's specific learning needs. Science Tutor Network also takes into account of client's preferences for tutors, such as the following:

- Tutor's proximity to the student's home
- Common interests between student and tutor
