What is Jill's background?
A bit about me: My name is Jill. I was born in a small farm town in southwest Iowa. When I was very young, my family moved to Houston, TX, so I consider myself a native Texan and Houston is my home. I moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas... and that's when I knew that Austin was the city for me.
I graduated with honors from The University of Texas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Learning and Development, EC-6 and ESL.
What is the process for getting matched with a tutor?
As soon as you think your child may benefit from tutoring, feel free to reach out and give me a call.
We'll have a brief chat about your needs, and I'll send you a follow-up questionaire (super simple) to get the specifics on your and your child's needs.
After I get your questionaire, we'll personally match you with one of our pre-vetted, qualified independent contractor tutors.
We'll have a follow-up call and set up a date and time to get started. I will provide you with your tutor's contact information and you can begin reaching out to schedule.
If you prefer a quick phone call or meeting first, we can schedule that, too. Once we huddle and hurrah, tutoring can begin on your schedule. You'll work directly with your tutor to confirm times, cancellations, reschedules, etc.
Do you offer online tutoring?
Yes! Many of our tutors are prepared to take their sessions and lessons online. Simply get in touch and ask about online tutoring. We'll make sure your tutor match can meet your needs.
Where are tutoring sessions held?
Our tutors are available to work in-home with an adult present, or on-site in a public location (i.e. library, café, book store, etc.). Wherever is most convenient for you and your family.
Who are your tutors?
Jill's Tutors is a vast network of educators with a variety of backgrounds. They include former and current teachers, professors, college students, and professionals with a specific expertise. At a minimum, they have a bachelor's degree in their subject area of expertise (or are working toward one). Most are experienced educators. All tutors are independent contractors, throroughly vetted with their backgrounds checked.
How much does tutoring cost?
Tutoring tends to average around $44-55 per hour, depending on the number of hours.
If you want tutoring every other week for one hour, the 15-hour bundle should cover you.
The 10-hour bundle is great for helping kids through trouble spots. And the 20-hour bundle is available should you pick up tutoring in the middle of the year.
Do you offer payment plans?
One of the reasons our clients love us is because of our bundles and monthly invoicing. Not only do we offer significant discounts on our bundles (as much as 20%), but our "by the hour" monthly invoicing also helps our clients tackle costs in manageable bites.
How do I pay for your services?
We require a 20% deposit upfront. At the end of each month following tutoring, we'll invoice you for the total number of hours used in a given month. Payment is due by the 15th of every subsequent month, for the previous month's balance.
