Home Tuition: How To Find the Right Tutor

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

There are a lot of students who struggle with their studies. When this happens the best solution is usually to hire a tutor to give them some personal attention and help get them up to speed. If you are going to hire a tutor however you have to make sure that you know how to find the right one for your needs.

The first thing that you have to do in order to find the right tutor for your needs is to really think about how much help you need with your studies. If you are generally able to keep up with the lessons in class but would like a little bit of extra help to make sure that you get the best grade possible a classmate who is doing well in the subject may be adequate. On the other hand if you are really struggling to understand the material you will probably need the help of a professional tutor.

If you are going to choose a professional tutor it is best to find one who is certified. There are various levels of certification depending on where you live but in general your best bet is to go with a professional teacher who is moonlighting for extra cash. They will have the most training and experience. There are also people who work as fulltime tutors who have certification but who are not licensed teachers. They can be a good option but they will not have the same level of training as a teacher.

One thing to keep in mind when you are looking at certifications is to make sure that you choose a tutor who has training and experience in the subject you need help with. A licensed teacher may have the most teaching experience but if all of that experience is in teaching history they are probably not going to be much help if you are struggling with math. You have to consider both their certification and their teaching background.

There are generally two sources that you can use to find tutors, the first is to go through an agency, the other is a freelancer. A tutor from an agency will generally have more training and experience but will also cost more. With freelancers it is a bit more a gamble since you don't have an agency to do background checks. On the other hand a tutor who is freelancing will generally cost less.

If you are struggling with your studies home tuition may be the solution to your problem. Home tuition can give you the personal attention you need to get back on track.
