Tutors help all ages and all kinds of people: preschoolers, elementary and secondary students in private or public school or home school, as well as college or other post-secondary students. Tutors also help folks of all ages who are looking to develop new skills or increase their knowledge in areas they already have some experience with. Tutors help with “formal education” of course, but there are also tutors who will help you with a hobby, practical home or job skills, and more.
