If you would like to know more, keep reading as we answer some commonly asked questions below.


How Does the Process of Hiring a Candidate Work?


Though a complicated process on one’s own, we take the hassle out of finding the best candidate for you. All you need to do is get in touch with us and have a chat about the kind of tutoring services you are seeking. Here you will tell us about your requirements as a family, what kind of hours you would require from a tutor, and any special educational needs your child has. One of our expert recruiters will then match you with a tutor who is most suited and qualified to meet your criteria. Thereafter, you will have a free meet-and-greet trial to get to know the candidate before the placement is finalised.


How Much Do Tutoring Services Cost Per Month?


Whether a salary or an hourly rate, what you pay your child’s tutor comes down to factors such as their age, experience, qualifications, the number of children they tutor, and the hours they work. These hours can be flexible and adjusted according to the child’s schedule and learning needs. Usually, the salary starting point is around R6 000 per month.


What Does the Screening Process Involve?


Introducing anyone to your home is a big step – especially in the case of someone who is going to work closely with your child. We take care of a bespoke candidate-selection process for you so that you can trust the individual you choose to hire. Only about 5% of applicants ever make the cut with us, while ±85% of our client families will hire someone from our first recommended match. During the screening process, we filter through hundreds of CVs daily, perform thorough background checks and psychometric testing, and conduct in-depth interviews. Our screening is so intensive that only the cream of the crop is considered for placement.
