FAQ

Frequently asked questions

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

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?
Tutoring

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.

How is contact established between pupils and volunteers ?
Tutoring

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.

How much time do I need to bring with me for learning support?
Tutoring

For learning support, you should bring at least 2 months of time with you, during which you will meet with a student for approx. 1-2 hours per week - you will discuss the exact scope individually in the learning pair. Of course, it is also possible to take a break or reduce the number of meetings in phases. It is important that you communicate your current availability to your learning partner.
