Client

You are more than welcome to reschedule any booked tutorial. You can do this by emailing your client manager, DesRay. We will then confirm this change before the start time of the original booking, or your booking will revert to the original time and you may be charged if you have not given 24 hours notice. Reschedule requests can only be made by a parent or a student, and not a tutor.

Please call or email us and we will get back to you. You are welcome to contact us with any questions you might have or ask for advice on a totally ‘no obligation’ basis.

Category: Client

No. There is no minimal obligation or time period you have to arrange lessons. Have as many or few lessons as you require.

Category: Client

Your first lesson is also known as the consultation and is a free session which is an opportunity for you to sit down with the client manager and  discuss your requirements and develop a plan in conjunction with them.

Category: Client

Yes, we do request that payments for sessions are made in advance of the tuition.

Category: Client

A session can be for as long as you wish. Upon receiving your enquiry, we will discuss your requirements and then suggest an appropriate lesson duration and frequency. The average lesson is 1 hour, but it is advisable to discuss timings directly with your client manager (DesRay).

Category: Client

This can sometimes happen.  It is no problem at all and we will endeavour to find you another tutor at no extra cost.

Category: Client

Certainly. Clients might insist on a non-smoker, or a male tutor, for example. We endeavour to get the best possible match we can between client and tutor.

Category: Client

We actively encourage feedback to improve our services to you, so just find our contact details here and get in touch. We will also maintain regular contact throughout the tuition process, to make sure you continue to be satisfied with your tutor.

Category: Client

We keep in regular contact with all our tutors and their clients in order to monitor the standard of tuition being received.

Category: Client

As a minimum, all our tutors have received matric distinctions in the subject and level they tutor in. Tutors are required to send in a detailed CV, including contact details for two references. A thorough interview process then follows.

Category: Client

No. Unlike most tutoring companies Academic Success Achievers does not require a registration fee.

Tuition offers a completely different learning approach from school. It is  becoming increasingly popular as students and parents begin to realise the enormous progress that can be made in these sessions. The personal attention tutors and knowledge our tutors offer, can help inspire students and bring confidence to their learning.

Category: Client

We require work and personal references from all our tutors which we then follow up on intently.

Category: Client

We only accept EFT payments or bank deposits that must be made into our bank account before we can commence with the agreed tutoring package.

Category: Client

If at any point you are unhappy with the tutor we have provided, you can contact us on O82 089 0994 or email des@academicsuccess.co.za and we will happily assess the situation and if needed we will provide you with a new tutor. For more information, please read our Terms of Service.

Tutoring sessions are held in any place that is convenient for you- as long as it’s in the city of Pretoria or Polokwane. This session can preferably be held in your home.

Category: Client

Tutors will not do the work for you or tell you what to write. They cannot provide feedback about grades, guarantee success in a class, or assist with take-home exams, unless the instructor provides explicit written approval.

Category: Client

Your tutor will work with you to help you understand where you are having difficulty and how to find strategies to overcome obstacles to learning. A tutor can help you gain new perspectives on your learning by asking questions, explaining concepts in different ways, sharing examples and resources, helping connect prior knowledge to current classes, suggesting study strategies, providing encouragement, and more.

Category: Client

Anyone can benefit from tutoring! Tutoring is a habit of engaged, successful students who care about their learning. It can help students ease anxiety about difficult courses, deepen understanding and retention of course content, and help develop more effective study skills.

Tutors

No, you do not. However, your profile may appear incomplete or otherwise negative to clients if it is missing a photo or any information.

Category: Tutors

You can sign up to be a tutor here.

Category: Tutors

Of course, we don’t restrict what tutors do outside of their lessons. All that we ask is that you’re aware that you represent Academic Success Achievers when tutoring our students, so you should always follow our teaching guidelines and adhere to your Tutoring Agreement.

Category: Tutors

Due to the nature of what we do, we feel that an interview is necessary before we can accept anyone as a tutor. We as ASA conduct telephonic interviews regularly. Once you’ve completed your profile and it has been reviewed, you will have to complete an assessment which will determine your skill set. Lastly, you will receive an email regarding a time for the telephonic interview; make sure that you are available during that time. We realise that you may be very keen to begin tutoring, but we never intend our relationship with tutors to be short-term, and as such do not rush to recruit anyone. If, at any point, your application is unsuccessful, you will receive an email immediately.

Once you have had your interview, you will be contacted within two working days. If successful, you may then view a list of potential students and start accepting tutoring opportunities.

Category: Tutors

We regularly ask students for feedback in order to check that their lessons are going well. It is also a good idea for tutors to periodically check with students and parents whether they have any concerns. Tutors are also welcome to discuss any concerns they have with us, and we will do our best to offer advice. If at any time the student or tutor feel that they are not deriving the maximum benefit, we will discuss it further, and can change the tutor for that student if either wish to do so.

You can obtain syllabuses from the examining boards’ websites and usually you can also find specimen or sample papers. Our tutors know the material which they are teaching inside out, but we ask them to constantly keep up to date with the current syllabus.

Category: Tutors

As a tutor you should have at least a few past papers and books in the subjects that you wish to teach. If you intend to teach many students in one subject, the more materials you have, the better.

Category: Tutors

We are always here to help with any queries that you may have. We regularly ask for feedback from our tutors and our students to ensure that the tuition is progressing as well as possible.

Category: Tutors

The most common time commitment for a student is 1 hour each week until their exams. There are often students who only want lessons a few weeks before their exam, just over the holidays, or intensively for a week. Of course every student is different and we will let you know what the student expects from you along with any other information.

Category: Tutors

This depends mainly on which subjects you’re able to teach. All the available jobs for your chosen subject/s will be emailed to you and you can apply to whichever job you want. You get the jobs that your application is successful in.

Category: Tutors

You will receive a payment order on the last day of the month that details how much you will be paid. We then pay all tutors on the first day of the next month (the next day). All payments are made via EFT transfers to the bank account details you’ve provided on your profile. Due to varying interbank transfer periods, the money may take 3 – 5 days to reflect in your account.

When accepting the offer to tutor a student, you will see the tuition location displayed. This allows tutors to decide if they are able to travel to the student, and to plan their journey.

Category: Tutors

Our tutors are required to go to student’s homes for each tutoring session. For students under 16 years of age we strongly recommend that tuition take place in the student’s home, where a parent or guardian is present. However, for all other students, tuition may be arranged wherever agreed.

Category: Tutors

As a general guideline, a tutor must have received a Grade 12 distinction (over 80%) in the subject which they intend to tutor.

Category: Tutors

We look at a number of factors to decide which tutor would best suit the needs of the student. The key criteria are the qualifications tutors have in the subject to be tutored, and whether they can travel to the location required by the student. We also look at whether tutors are able to meet any individual requirements a student may have, and take into account a tutor’s feedback from previous students and their assessment performance.

Category: Tutors

Once you become a tutor, you will be able to log into the website on your desktop or even your phone where you can view a list of potential students that you are eligible to tutor. If you want to apply to tutor a student, we will usually let you know within 7 days whether you have been selected as that student’s tutor. If so, you will receive a calendar with the set amount of lessons and the dates & times of all of them.

Category: Tutors

Since English is a commonly-used and most easily understood language in South Africa, we expect all of our tutors to have excellent spoken English. During your telephonic interview, one of our criteria will be to check that you can communicate ideas clearly and fluently in English. We will also check that your sentences are grammatically correct on your application.

Category: Tutors

No. The minimum requirement to become an ASA Tutor is that you should have received a matric distinction in the specific High School subject that you would like to tutor. Significant teaching/tutoring experience is not a requirement but it is very advantageous. Also, each of our tutors must be 18 or over.
