Our search will order home literacy tutors (from New Zealand) in your local area by their literacy tuition charges and proximity to you. Before reaching an arrangement with a literacy teacher, you can ask specific questions in our member's area, such as whether they cover your syllabus (usually set by the AQA, EdExcel or OCR exam boards) before releasing your contact details. You can search for literacy teachers tutoring at primary, secondary including NCA level 1, NCA level 3 and even private literacy tuition for adult learning, further and higher education - anywhere in New Zealand! Finding help through private literacy tuition (or using group literacy tuition) has been shown to improve your chances of attaining a top grade and remembering what is being taught.

If you are a private literacy tutor wishing to offer your literacy tuition services in New Zealand or elsewhere across New Zealand, please register with First Tutors: NZ or find out more about us here in New Zealand.
