WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Do you have any questions?
Read our Tutoring FAQ below:
Where does Tutors SA operate?
We offer both online and in person tutoring all across South Africa. We have clients and tutors in every City and town in every province.
How many hours do I have to commit to tutor per week?
The number of hours you tutor per week is up to you!
What qualifications do I need to tutor for Tutors SA?
Our minimum acceptable qualification is a matric certificate, but we prefer to use Tutors who either have or are in the process of getting their tertiary education.
You will also need strong oral and written communication skills, a fluency with the English language and a good grasp of the subjects you want to tutor.
Are lessons online or in person?
You will get to state upfront if you are able to only do online or in person tutoring, however, it is ultimately up to the clients to decide how they would like to have their lessons. Therefore, being able to do both will allow more clients to become available to you.
What do I need in order to do online tutoring?
You will need a computer or laptop with a good quality webcam, a head set with a working microphone and access to reliable internet is a must. If you are not familiar with the following platforms it is advisable that you do so: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet.
What is expected of me for in person tutoring?
Most in person tutoring will happen either at the client’s home or a prearranged public place, libraries, community centers etc., therefore having your own transport will be necessary. You will be provided with the address where the lesson will take place after you have accepted the “Job” or lesson. Please familiarize yourself with what routs you need to take and what your departure time needs to be in order to be on time before the day arranged. Rather be early by 5min than late and keep the client informed if you are going to be even a minute late.
Arrive well prepared for every lesson and ensure all of your appliances (phone, laptop, etc.) is fully charged and ready.
Please also observe all current Covid-19 regulations with regards to sanitization, social distancing and wearing a mask during in person tutoring sessions.
Do I get paid for travel or data?
You will be expected to cover your own petrol costs for travels up to 10 to 15 kilometers, as well as internet costs. However, if you need to travel further, a petrol subsidy can be negotiated with your Tutorzone manager ahead of time. You will therefore need to negotiate this with them before lessons commence.
Can I continue tutoring privately?
Absolutely! We do not ask for exclusivity at all. Besides you will soon see how the majority of your client base will always end up being Tutors SA clients ;). However, all clients that you meet through Tutors SA need to remain Tutors SA clients; we have a strict policy on circumvention in this regard.
Is tutoring safe?
We are fully committed to keeping our clients and tutors safe. Infract, we encourage you to please read our Safety Guide for more information on what you as tutor can also do to keep yourself safe.
How will prospective students contact me?
After the client has given the go ahead for lessons to commence we will then send you their details and share yours with them.
(Do not share client details with anyone unless you have the client in question’s express permission)
How much do I get paid, and how often?
Tutor’s rates are determined what level of tuition is required and what subjects you are tutoring. You can expect to earn a lower hourly rate for most school level subjects and then a higher hourly rate for university level subjects. Also, all Tutor payments are made once a month for the lessons given in the period before.
How do I go about rescheduling or cancelling a session?
If you need to reschedule a tutoring session, contact the client an absolute minimum of 24 hours in advance in order to discuss what other time would suit them. If a lesson needs to be cancelled altogether a minimum of 48 hours in advance is required and Tutor Zone needs to receive a carbon copy of all correspondence. Please note that a complete cancellation could count against your being assigned new clients.
Who can I contact if I have any more questions?
If you have any further questions or concerns you are welcome to contact us at: Tutorzone@tutorssa.co.za
