How To Choose A Good Tutor For Your Child?

Jun 2, 2008
If your child is not faring well in school and you need to get him a home tutor, you need to take your time to find the right person for him. Choosing the right home tutor for your child is very important if you want the tuition to be effective. There are things that you need to take into consideration when looking for a home tutor. Let me share with you some guidelines that you should follow:

A good home tutor must know how to interact effectively with your child. He is someone that your child feels comfortable with and can encourage him or her to work hard. A good home tutor need not be the one who has good educational background and highly recommended by a tuition agency. Yes, these aspects are important but they are not everything. To be able to communicate effectively and bring the best out of your child is something that a good tutor must possess.

When you hire a tutor to teach your child, your objective is to expect the tutor to impart his or her knowledge to your child so that your child can pick up the subject that he or she has problem with. Therefore, a good tutor must be able to communicate clearly to your child and make sure that your child picks up what he or she is teaching.

You should also look for a professional and reliable home tutor. Punctuality, patience, responsibility and dedication are important aspects that a good home tutor must have. If you can find a reliable tutor, you can expect good returns from your effort.

However, sometimes it is very difficult to determine whether a tutor possesses the qualifications and the characteristic aspects that you are looking for. To know a tutor's qualifications, you should ask for references and qualification papers. With these documents, you will be able to know whether he or she is qualified enough to teach.

To find out whether a tutor is reliable, there are 2 methods. One is to talk to your child and ask him to express his likes and dislikes towards the tutor. Second method is to physically keep an eye on the tuition session. Overtime, you should be able to know whether the tutor that you have appointed is a reliable and trustworthy person.

Sometimes, to get a good tutor is not easy. There will be times you need to get rid of poor tutor before you can find a quality one. Just do a bit of research and get involved with the selection process. Once you see a tutor is not performing to your expectation, do not hesitate to fire him or her. When the bad one does not leave, the good one will never arrive.
