Find a tutor 101

Some students benefit from one-on-one support. A tutor can help improve grades, and as well, increase the knowledge and understanding of subjects. Additionally, "the right tutor" can boost a student's motivation to succeed, and allow a student to learn at their own pace. In turn, this can help a student improve their grades; as well as, their self-esteem and confidence.

There are several things to consider when hiring a tutor. For example:

  • Make sure the tutor is a qualified teacher. Why? First of all, BC Certified Teachers must have a criminal record check. Secondly, they will have the proper tools and foundation to teach your child.

  • An experienced and qualified tutor will want to initially meet with the family and/or student to develop a learning plan? How can you help a student progress if you do not know where you are going?

  • Ask whether the tutor travel to your house, as there may be an extra travel fee or whether you will travel to the tutor?

  • Rates are typically dependent on experience, and like with anything else in business, you typically get what you pay for.

  • It is also very important to make sure that the student and tutor are compatible. Just like in other areas of life; sometimes people click and sometimes not. In this case, the tutor is a learning tool, so it is very important for the student to form a cooperative and understanding learning environment conducive to the student's needs.

  • A professional tutor should be super organized, in order to track the student's progress and to plan lessons.

  • As well, ensure the tutor is knowledgeable and trained in the subject- specific knowledge the student needs. For example, there is no point in hiring a math tutor to help you with English grammar.

Overall, there are many benefits to hiring a tutor, if you hire the right one and mostly, best suited for the student's needs. Make sure your tutor is educated, certified, knowledgeable, experienced and most of all, loves working with students!
