If you have recently started a tutoring job, you are probably still trying to figure out a schedule that works for you and the students you are tutoring. If tutoring is your side job, you have to work around both your and your student’s schedule. So how long should a tutoring session even last?
As a math tutor who specializes in college entrance exam preparation, Catherine Sheridan is passionate about empowering students through education. Today she shares how long tutoring sessions should be.
This depends a lot on the age of the student you are tutoring. Younger children may not be able to sit for long periods of time, while older students can. Sessions should be no shorter than 45 minutes. Anything less than this won’t give you enough time to properly go over the material. On the longer end, sessions could last about three hours, but this is usually a lot for a student to handle. 1-2 hour sessions once or twice per week is a good starting point.
