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.

5. Is tutoring “stressful”?

In focus groups, the conclusion was this is a misleading question. A better question is, “What is more stressful; failing maths or having a maths tutor”? The point being that tutoring requires some work on behalf of the student, but ultimately leads to a feeling of achievement and mastery of a tough subject, which is worth the effort. There are no free rides in life. Achievement comes from work, but… that feels good!
