Whether tutoring is for yourself or your child, it is important to make the most of your investment. Here are some pointers for a successful outcome.
- Pick a tutor that is not only knowledgeable in the subject area but has a flexible personality. A tutor who can adjust to the student’s learning style as well as what is going on that day in the student’s life will make the session more productive.
- Make sure that all the work that needs to be completed for school is brought to the tutoring session. A good tutor will have supplementary material, but if the goal is to understand and complete school work, bringing materials is essential.
- Ask questions! The whole point of tutoring is to gain a deeper understanding of the subject being studied. A good tutor will take the time and make the student feel comfortable so they can ask as many questions as necessary until they comprehend the issues.
