Should my child enrol in a group or one-to-one session?
Both the group sessions and one-to-one sessions are a great option – it really depends on your child’s needs, and what you would like out of their tuition lessons.
How many sessions does my child attend per week?
Most of our students attend one session per week. We have multiple session timings available per year level, so if you would like your child to attend more than one session per week, they are welcome to do so, however extra charges per session will apply.
How long is a term?
Term weeks vary from term to term. The 2020 term dates for Holistic Learning are below.
Will my child receive homework?
My child is having trouble with their homework. Can this be part of their programme?
How long will my child need tutoring for?
We believe that learning is an ongoing process, and that best results take time. Our curriculum is based on a long-term study programme, to build your child’s fundamental skills required to excel. We encourage you to come and speak with one of our qualified teachers to further discuss your child’s needs.
Who teaches my child?
All of our teachers at Holistic Learning are tertiary qualified, and are either NZ registered teachers, or have experience in teaching in New Zealand or abroad.
Are classes aligned to the NZ curriculum?
How does Holistic Learning assess student progress?
In 2020, Holistic Learning is introducing a testing system where every student will be assessed at the end of each assessment standard to track their progress.
What age levels are available?
Holistic Learning typically caters to tuition for students from Years 1-13, though there is no specific age limit. If you are an adult, or have a child under the age of 5 that you are interested in sending to tuition, then please contact us so that we can talk through the best option for you.
How does payment work?
We have two payment options available. Upfront payments can be made for the full term, or alternatively, a direct debit can be set up so that weekly payments are automatically deducted.
Are there discounts for enrolling in multiple subjects?
If you enrol in more than one session per week (in either the same or different subjects), you will receive a 5% discount on the total term fee for your additional classes.
Are there holiday programmes available?
There are no set holiday programmes at this stage, however we do run one-off holiday programmes from time-to-time. We regularly update our 2020 calendar with any new programmes we run, which can be viewed here.
What happens if my child misses a lesson?
Are there discounts for enrolling multiple children from the same family?
If you enrol 3 or more children from the same family (in either the same or different subjects), you will receive a 5% discount on one child's total term fee.
