What subjects do you offer?


At PB Tutoring, our primary focus is English and essay writing tuition for high school and university students. Coaching in other HSC subjects may be available upon request. We also provide essay proofing services across a wide array of university subjects.




Why do I need English tutoring?


English is often the subject that students have to work the hardest to understand as success is not based on formulas or memorising syllabus points. Rather, success in English is founded on literacy skills and critical thinking, which need to be fine-tuned and developed over time. Whether students are encountering difficulty with understanding texts, developing arguments, structuring essays, or simply seek to push the quality of their responses above and beyond expectations, PB Tutoring is here to help.




What are your tutors like?


Currently, PB Tutoring has two tutors on staff, Renee who specialises in junior tuition and Paris who works with senior high school and tertiary students. Both of our tutors are highly skilled, professional and approachable, trained in helping students achieve success across a variety of areas. For more information about our tutors, please see the About section of the website. To find out more about Paris and her experience, click here.




How do I know if my child is improving?


PB Tutoring has a policy of transparency, and thus is always happy to communicate with parents regarding student development. Formal requests for end of term or progress reports may be made by parents or alternatively one of our staff are always happy to respond to questions or provide updates via email or telephone.




How do you run your lessons?


Unlike most tutoring businesses, our lessons are based on quality, individually-focussed work rather than generic content. We offer 1:1 or small group lessons where teaching material is tailored on a week-by-week basis, as determined by the needs and progress of the student.




Should I wait until year 12 to enrol?


While year 12 is obviously the pinnacle year where English tuition is necessary, it is recommended that students enrol from year 10 or early year 11 to allow time for necessary skill sets to be developed.




How much does tutoring cost?


For senior students (years 11-12), our lesson rate is $70 per hour for a 1:1 lesson or $45 per student per hour for a class lesson of two to three students. For junior students (years 7-10), lessons are $60 per hour for 1:1 lessons or $45 for student per hour for small group lessons. Payments may be made on a weekly, fortnightly or full term basis.




How do I access your online resources?


Once you enrol, you will be given a student login code, which gives you complete access to all of our resources. For external students, please feel free to contact us for further details about how to access online content.
