finding a private tutor in jakarta

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.
