Knowledge and Experience

It is the depth and breadth of subject knowledge and experience on offer that differentiates the Clear View Tutoring team from other private tutoring options.

By aligning the highly skilled qualifications and industry experience of each tutor, Clear View Tutoring provides a custom fit for every student, whether at primary school, secondary school, TAFE, or university level.

All Clear View tutors hold specific qualifications in excess of a Bachelor of Education in general secondary or primary teaching. Each tutor holds a three or four year degree in their subject area of specialisation.

For example, Clear View tutors delivering mathematics, will have a degree in a mathematical field in addition to a postgraduate or a Master’s qualification and education experience within that area of Queensland. Many have a masters in their field in addition to their teaching qualification, some even up to a post-doctorate qualification.
