How to Hire a Private Tutor
When selecting a private tutor that will be a positive fit for your learning style be honest with yourself. Ask your self some very important questions, such as:
· How do I like to learn?
· Am I a hands on learner?
· Do I work well independently?
· What is my weakest area of study?
The best tutor for you will depend on your answers. Such as if you tend to procrastinate you need a tutor who is very structured; gives you detailed tasks and homework with clear deadlines. Set your goals to be specific, attainable, and timely. If you are a hands on learner, we would look for a tutor who will have exercises, videos, even puzzles and games to help you learn information in a creative way. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is very important. To get the most out of your tutoring experience know how yourself and set yourself up for success. You may not even know your best areas of study, or recognize your weakest, which is why it is good to take a diagnostic test. This way there is a detailed breakdown of what you need to work on and where your score is starting out.
Here at Top Test Prep we send out a personality assessment to all our new clients. This is not your run of the mill, how happy are you with… survey, but one that contains some very important questions. The answers to those questions influence your pairing match. We ask questions about how you like to learn, what your grades are, what are your favorite areas of study, and if you enjoy or find tests to be easy. If you are looking for a private tutor, be sure to think about these factors when looking. If you are unsure about what you need in a tutor give us a call at (800) 501-Prep and set up a consultation.
