Frequently Asked Questions


How long is each lesson?

1 hour.  Most students have 1 lesson a week, unless extra time is needed for example, for extra help with NCEA exams.

Does the student need to bring resources? 

We supply all the resources.  Primary level take home their work books which allows parents/ caregivers the opportunity to share what they are studying.  Secondary level students work with what the are doing in their classwork and NCEA and can also bring homework if they need help with this.

There is no homework.

Mondays to Thursday 3:30, 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30.

Years 9, 10 and 11 (NCEA level 1) is $50.

We work with the Xero accounting system.  Accounts will be sent out at the beginning of each term, to be paid weekly.


What is the Tutor / Student ratio? 

For years 1 - 11, one tutor to two students, unless arrangements have been made for one on one tutoring. Years 12 and 13 have one tutor to one student.

Each student is working with the NZ Curriculum. Does Action Tutoring support this?

Absolutely.  We would not consider including material that would confuse our students.
