While good academic results can open the door to meaningful and lucrative careers, for most people it is more like the iron bar holding them back from reaching their dreams. This is especially true for seniors in high school who need to achieve a certain result to enter university or a higher education training programme.
But there is hope for those who want to change their fate. Tutoring offers one-on-one time with students to help root out problem areas. Students are also more inclined to ask questions in a private setting which will speed up their learning and development.
Tutors are experts in their subject matter and are able to guide learners to the right answers and work at a pace that suits the individual.
Below is a list of organisations that offer tutoring services to students with a brief description of each.
