Frequently Asked Questions
Who can volunteer to be a tutor?
Anyone can be a volunteer! As long as you are in Year 9 or older, you are welcome to join our team.
If you have experience working with (or is a parent of) children who speak a second language, we would particularly appreciate your help!
Is my child eligible?
To be eligible, a child needs to be in Kindergarten to Year 9 (inclusive). They should be experiencing difficulties with school work and need extra assistance, but their families are not able to afford tutoring otherwise.
What subjects can my child get help with?
Our tutors are able to assist students with Kindergarten to Year 9 level English, Mathematics and Science, in addition to reading help for K-2 students.
Is my child safe?
There are many measures put in place to ensure that your child is safe. All tutors undergo interviews prior to becoming a tutor, and tutors over the age of 18 are required to have a valid Working With Children Check (WWCC).
What if I need to cancel a lesson?
Both tutors and parents need to be notified of lesson cancellations at least 24 hours before the lesson time, as per the Terms and Conditions.
I want to get involved, how can I support eTutors Project?
For individuals, volunteering as a tutor is the best support we could ask from you. If for any reason you are unable to volunteer, we would sincerely appreciate any donations.
For companies or other organisations, we would love any sponsorships from you or partner with you so please use our contact form to get in touch!
As I tutor, would I be required to prepare my own materials?
Each student is different so tutors should discuss the student's learning needs with the parent and the student before sessions begin. Some may need help with a particular topic, which would require the tutor to prepare materials beforehand while others may need help with work from school instead.
Where are your tutors and students from?
eTutors Project accepts tutors and students from any state and/or territory in Australia.
