Frequently asked questions

How long does it take until I am connected with a learning partner?

The waiting time depends on supply and demand. For helpers, placement often only takes a few days. For pupils , on the other hand, it can take up to several months. In any case, we will inform you by email as soon as we have found a suitable learning partner. You can check the current status of your search in your account at any time and contact support@lern-fair.de if you have any difficulties.

How often do the learning pairs meet per week?

Most of our learner pairs meet 1-2 times a week for a lesson of approx. 45 minutes. Our volunteers set the time frame and decide for themselves how many hours per week they can make available.

Which pupils can register for 1:1 learning support?

The 1:1 learning support is only aimed at pupils who have no or hardly any opportunities to get paid tutoring or support at school, regardless of the reasons (financial, social, personal, health or cultural reasons). Please only register for 1:1 learning support if this applies to you.

How long will I be supported?

You and your learning partner decide for yourselves how long you learn together in learning support. Most pairs work together as long as the helper can provide support or until the student no longer needs help.
If your learning partner can no longer support you, you can request additional help in your account.

How is contact established between pupils and volunteers ?

As soon as we have found a suitable learning pair, we will inform both parties by email. In our user area, both parties can then write to each other via chat, create appointments for learning support and then talk to each other via Zoom video conference.

Where can I find other tutors?

As we have criteria for admission to Lern-Fair , we are unfortunately unable to offer tutoring to all pupils students. We are therefore happy to advise you on how to find other tutoring:

There are thousands of providers of offline tutoring in presence throughout Germany. The best of these are regularly compared in comparison portals, such as the following websites:

It is also often worth looking for older pupils students at your own school or at schools in the neighborhood who offer inexpensive tutoring. Ask your teachers if they can help you find someone.

There are many providers of online tutoring , offering not only traditional tutoring, but also learning platforms or quick help. Free and fee-based offers for all age groups and subjects are listed at https://digitale-lernangebote.de/ "
