Private Tutors in Indonesia
There are a number of companies which can arrange private tutors to come to your home to assist your children with difficult subjects in school such as math, science, and foreign languages. Many expatriate families who are abroad for the first time will find that their children experience difficulties studying these subjects in what may be a foreign language (to them) at their international school.
The practice of having tutors come to your home is common amongst middle and upper class Indonesians. They may have several "guru les" who come to their house several times a week to assist children in completing all their homework or just with specific subjects.
Homework assistance can also be given in groups or at the private tutoring company's office/school location. Read this additional information on How to find good Private Tutors for your Children in Indonesia.
At Jakarta Tutors, we have provided private tutors for international school students since 2000. Our students range from primary to high school levels. The most common subjects that tutors are requested for are: mathematics, science (physics, biology, chemistry), and economics. Also in high demand is language tutoring for such languages as English, French, Mandarin, Bahasa Indonesia, etc.
We can come to your home for tutoring and can schedule the time according to the student's schedule and convenience.
Our tutors understand and have experience with the Cambridge Program, IGCSE, MYP, as as well as IB HL /SL requirements. Our Jakarta
tutors are young, have a pleasant personality, love to work with children and students, and speak English fluently. Tuition fees are competitive and reasonable. If you need more info, please contact our administrator, Ms. Yasmin at 0811-119405.
