Hiring a Tutor? Ask These Questions
These days, many academic tutors can provide learning assistance ranging from course subject support to standardized test preparation. As college admissions consultant in Middle TN, I have met some effective tutors…and I have met some not-so-effective tutors. Like anything else in life, you get what you pay for. I have my students work with certain tutors for areas where they need the most improvement and fine tuning. Investing in your child’s future and knowing what sets one tutor apart from another is important to consider while interviewing prospective individuals.
Are you currently exploring academic tutoring services in Brentwood, TN or Franklin, TN? Below are my recommended top questions you should be asking your tutor.
How long have you been providing tutoring services?
What is your course-subject specialty?
What are your educational qualifications?
What did you (or your tutors) personally score on the ACT, SAT, etc?
Do you have an average point-increase track record?
Where will the tutoring take place?
What is your tutoring approach/teaching style?
Do you have references?
How will you measure my child’s progress?
What is your subject matter expertise with the subject matter? (i.e., pre-calc, Spanish, etc.)
Lastly, make sure your child has a chance to meet the tutor before agreeing to a tutoring session. For the sake of all parties involved, it is important that they work well together and establish a clear understanding of approach and goal setting.
