Here are some frequently asked questions by our clients:
How do I know my privacy will be protected?
At Kids Tutor Kids, we live by the golden rule: treat others the way you wish to be treated. Our first priority is providing kids the educational support they need while protecting their privacy. Security is taken very seriously, and no pictures or videos of kids will be taken. Likewise we ask the same of our students and families to protect our tutors’ privacy.

How do we select our tutors?
Kids Tutor Kids’ team of tutors began in the Mid-Atlantic region who were in honors classes together. With a desire to expand outside of the Mid-Atlantic and across the United States, we have started virtual recruiting. Prospective tutors complete a multi-step process including a form describing their interest in the program, an interview, and a parental/guardian approval form for volunteering. Tutors are as young as rising 7th graders, and as old as high school seniors.
What is tutoring like?
Tutoring sessions generally last 20-40 minutes. Prior to a tutoring session, we ask for information about a student’s challenges. During a first session, a tutor spends a few minutes getting to know your child. Typically sessions have a teaching component with interactive questions and answers being provided. Depending on the age, exercises and/or games are used to make the material more enjoyable and easier to apply. On occasion, we may use or recommend worksheets as well for reinforcement.
What subjects do you tutor in?
Kids Tutor Kids primarily tutors in Math, English/Language Arts, and History. We will try and accomodate your children’s tutoring needs as best as we can. Currently all tutoring is in English.
What if I have a middle schooler that needs tutoring? Can Kids Tutor Kids work with them?
Kids Tutor Kids only works with kids in elementary school, K-5. We have partnered with Learn it Together(learnittogether.org), a service that provides free tutoring for middle schoolers and high schoolers.
