FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

A: You should consider tutoring if:

  • The teacher has advised you are struggling with course content
  • You feel you are struggling and falling behind
  • You are failing their classes
  • You don’t understand the lessons being taught in your class

A: Our website does not list ALL of the subjects we teach. Reingold Tutoring offers help in most subjects. If a subject is not listed, it is probably because our subject listing only shows subject areas, not specific courses. Please contact us to find a tutor for your course.

A: We are usually able to set up a tutor with a student in under 24-48 hours. The timing is dependent upon how open your schedule is, and which tutors are available in your area.

A: The number of lessons each student has every week is specific to the needs of the student. Generally speaking, if the student is requiring help in only one subject area, they most commonly have a one hour lesson, once each week. However, if the student is struggling with the course material, is learning disabled, or very behind, then they may require two one hour lessons per week, or simply one longer lesson. Students who are having help with two classes, may be able to cover all of the material in one hour each week, but may require more. We always try to minimize the amount of lessons each week, so as not to waste your money.

A: No. You only pay for the lessons you have. There are no upfront costs to Reingold Tutoring, no hidden costs, and no contracts to sign.

A: We have excellent knowledge of our tutors characteristics, personalities, experience and qualifications. We will select the tutor that we feel is most suitable for you, based on your needs, personality and request. We always give you the first lesson at a reduced rate, so that the student and tutor can feel it out, see how things go, and get to know each other. If the tutor isn’t “right” for the student, then we are always happy to give you a replacement who will fit better.

A: Yes, you are more than welcome to speak with your tutor before you begin your lessons.

A: Anyone can benefit from tutoring. It’s for those who are failing and for those looking for enrichment. We are happy to work with all students. 

In truth, if your children are good students and if they work hard, and if they are getting good marks, they likely do not require regular tutoring. They could have tutoring just as needed when they are struggling with a concept, when they have a tough test coming up, or when they have missed some classes.

A: All of our tutors are excellent. We employ them knowing they can teach and we train them in our methods. Every tutor comes with their own style and one tutor might be amazing for one student and might not be a good match for another student. We do our best to match the right tutor with the right student; but if we don’t get it right, we will happily allow for you to try a different tutor. With that said, if our tutors were not good then students would be complaining all the time and we wouldn’t have a business. So we are sure our tutors are really good.

A: You will know almost immediately if the tutoring is working. Your child will come out of their lessons feeling really good. You will see the lightbulb go on. Some students show gradual improvement, others are immediate. But the biggest indicator of successful tutoring sessions is the response from the student.

A: It really depends on their age and course content. If we are speaking about a student in grade 9 math who is receiving tutoring. The tutor is there to teach the student the content. It is the responsibility of the student to follow up with the required practice. We ask that parents follow up with their children to see that the practice is completed, while allowing for the tutor to follow up on the homework. For younger students it’s most helpful when parents continue to practice the work learned in the lessons so that they continue to progress.

A: We recognize that a good chemistry between the tutor and student is extremely important for the success and effectiveness of one-on-one tutoring. Our tutors are very personable, highly motivating, and relate well to the students. We realize that the marks a student receives in school are very closely linked with self-esteem and happiness, so we make it a priority to work on not only the academics, but also on how the student feels and approaches the subject material.

A: We offer lessons in Thornhill, North York, Richmond Hill, Markham, and we are forever expanding. Please contact us to find out if we are now tutoring in your area.
