We receive desperate e-mails at findAtutor.ca with pleas to help them find a tutor. That's part of the reason findAtutor.ca was created! We do not actively search for tutors on your behalf, but here are a few suggestions to help in your search.
Looking for a Tutor
Response: How much can you afford?
There are no rules or guidelines on what a tutor should, or can, charge. Each individual tutor has taken into account their expenses, actual time devoted to tutoring, and personal worth to determine an appropriate rate for their services.
Generally the more education and experience a tutor has, the more they will charge. That doesn't mean you have to pay top dollar to get a good tutor, but a good tutor may cost more than the "average."
You may be in a unique course, remote location, or, as many post secondary students are, flat broke. Now what? Here are some suggests, most are geared to college/university or upper level high school students, but may be helpful for others as well.
Ask the teacher for help, many will see you outside of class room time to help out. If you find your teacher unapproachable, try asking another teacher you had that you liked.
