Quick and simple lessons are usually done over the phone or webcam. These lessons can be as short as a few minutes. Our goal is to have people teach others about anything; it doesn't just have to be school-related. For example, if someone has a quick question about how to get their R code to work, they can call a computer programmer (tutor) and they can get a quick answer in 5 minutes. If they don't know the answer, you won't be charged. Tutors agree that if they don't have the answer or provide the service the student asked for, the lesson will be free; though we always hope both the tutor and student are satisfied.
Lessons can be done in person - in the student's home, the tutor's home, a library, coffee shop, etc. - your preference. The subject can be school-related or something completely different - maybe you want to learn how to play a song on a guitar but would like some instruction. Most of the lessons that take place are school-related like algebra, english, or test preparation. In any case, we do our best to provide professional and reliable tutors.
helping you find a connection
At Home Tutor for You, we know every person is smarter at something than some other person out there. Our goal is to spread the knowledge people have to others. At Home Tutor for You, we see it like this: a tutor is someone who knows anything and a student is someone who wants to learn anything. Most of the subjects with Home Tutor for You are school-related but we want everyone to understand that anything can be taught (and learned). Not only is teaching and learning a great thing for people to do, but it also brings people together. All you have to do is tell us the subject and we will do our best to find you a tutor. And maybe you don't need a tutor right now... but you can select a subject now, select a tutor, and then when you need a quick answer or need a lesson soon, you then have someone to call.
