Steps to Finding an Excellent Tutor for Your Child
Whether your child is lost in a haze of elementary grammar rules, sinking fast in a jumble of Newton’s laws in middle school, or lost in the details of an AP biology class, you need help quickly, before your child falls way behind the class and never recovers. So, what exactly can you do….now?
Many frustrated parents solve this problem by hiring a tutor. However, each family has unique needs, and tutors have many degrees of know-how and suitability. So it is important to know what you want, then thoroughly investigate the skill, experience, commitment and personality of the tutor.
- Know your goals
Ask yourself or any of our consultants at the Premier City tutors NG:
- What level of help do we need? Does my child need homework help, intensive remediation, or something in between?
- What areas do we want to see the tutor improve: better scores in one subject (chemistry, geometry); improved general skills (math, reading, science); study skills; motivation?
- What do I know about my child’s learning style? Does he learn best by reading, listening, moving, touching? Does he do better with men or women? Does he need lots of nurturing or a firm hand? What motivates and interests him?
- How much time and money can you devote to tutoring? Don’t skimp, but be honest with yourself before you start.
Unfortunately, price is often the determining factor in choosing a tutor. However, it’s more important to look at value. At City tutors NG, we impart value at an affordable rate.
