Making the Most of Tutoring

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
