Taggart Tutors knows that all learners are people - not ‘students’ or ‘pupils’, but people. Different people have different needs. We provide a range of tuition services to respond to individual learning needs in both content knowledge & understanding, and in confidence & self-belief. We personalise learning.
At Taggart Tutors, our pricing reflects the high quality of our services, our desire to provide accessible support to as many learners as possible, and our commitment to transparency. All of our tuition types offer a ‘Flexible Fortnights’ or ‘Termly Value’ option.
LEARNING NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Our Learning Needs Assessment is the first step of the process. Here, Taggart Tutors determines the most effective type of tuition to both address content knowledge and to meet emotional-behavioural learning needs*.
At a Learning Needs Assessment, your learner experiences a 45 - 50 minute session with John Taggart where he will assess their Australian Curriculum-aligned understanding and their emotional responses to the learning process with warm and nurturing support. John analyses a learner's holistic needs to create a learning program precisely tailored to meet these needs from our range of tuition services. Following the assessment, parents or carers discuss the findings in-depth with John for up to an hour to ensure a thorough understanding of their learner's needs, and how a learner's success is ensured by our recommended tuition services.
The assessment of up to 2 hours carries a one-off rate of $49.95.
*A Learning Needs Assessment is not required for our Homework Help tuition.
Our computer-based learning programs provide individually customised mathematics and/or spelling content for every learner. Our tuition delivers Australian Curriculum-aligned concepts to address both learner’s prerequisite gaps by isolating and targeting their personal understanding, and to meet their current expectation. Our Education and Learning Facilitators provide constant one-to-one tutor support throughout the sessions to develop confidence and ensure thorough understanding. Feedback is provided by email and via our carer portal at the end of every session.
Flexible Fortnights - $75 per 90-minute session (paid fortnightly)
Termly Value - $700 per school term (10 sessions)

This tuition does not require a Learning Needs Assessment or address prerequisite gaps directly.
