Q. How long are the sessions?
A. The sessions are 1 hour long and most children will attend once a week.
Q. What is the ratio of children to tutors?
A. The maximum ratio of children to tutors in our regular sessions is 5 to 1. Children work on their own programmes as independently as possible to enable them to develop study skills. This ratio enables tutors to effectively encourage and support children in what we like to call "guided independent learning". For one to one sessions at pupils' homes and at the centre the ratio is 1 to 1.
Q. How much does it cost to study with Maldon Tuition?
A. The cost is £28 per session. There is a one-off registration fee of £29. Please see our fees & forms page for details of fees for one to one tuition, 11+ and tuition at home.
Q. How will I pay my child’s fees?
A. Fees are paid by monthly direct debit on the 1st of each month.
Q Is Maldon Tuition Centre open throughout the year?
A. Yes. Our regular weekly sessions take place during term time only as we understand many parents take holidays with their children during school holidays. Summer schools and other activities are arranged during school holidays as an option for those that wish to attend.
Q. What if my child is unable to attend a tutoring session due to illness or being on holiday?
A. If a pupil is unable to attend, payment is still required; however, we will always try to offer "catch-up" sessions if you inform us at least 24 hours in advance (although these cannot be guaranteed).
Q. Will we be tied into a long-term contract?
A No. You may cancel your child’s tutoring sessions at anytime by providing at least 1 full calendar month's written notice.
