Research: “Tutoring in Australia 2014”.In late 2014, we conducted a research project with 278 parents Australia-wide. Five of the findings include;
1. Who gets tutoring?
Group A. Time poor, professionally-employed parents who want their kids to improve, no matter how they are currently performing in a subject.
Group B. Hardworking, time poor migrant parents who feel they can’t help with their kids homework themselves, putting their kids at a disadvantage. Similar to professional parents, they want their kids to improve and get tutoring no matter how their kids are currently performing in a subject.
Group C. “Middle Australia” typically organise tutoring only for remedial purposes. ie their child is struggling in a subject (usually maths) and asks for a tutor. They believe parents who pay for tutors are doing something a little “unfair” and believe tutoring is costly, stressful and their child’s education is the schools responsibility.
2. How many high school kids get tutoring?Hard to estimate. At any one point in time, probably 20-25%. Over a child’s high school years, probably 50%+ will have had a tutor at one point in time.
3. How much is spent on high school tutoring in Australia?Our best estimate is Australian parents spend between $500-$800 million per year. It is a big industry.
4. Are parents happy with the tutors they are paying for?Good news - yes, 89% of parents report their experience with their tutor as “Good or Very Good”.
In comparison, only 4.8% reported their experience as “Poor of Very Poor”. In a separate survey, while most tutors offer their service for the income, they equally do it for the enjoyment of seeing their students achieve.
