How To Find The Perfect Tutor For Your Child

Working with a tutor can be beneficial for children who are struggling at school. It can also be helpful for self-motivated kids who want to take their learning to the next level. Working directly with a knowledgeable tutor is a great way to help kids get a better handle on their schoolwork. Here are some tips on how to find the perfect tutor for your child:

Find Out About The Tutor's Background

Ideally, you should look for a tutor who not only has the right educational background but who also has experience working with children. Before hiring a tutor, find out how well they understand the subject that they will be teaching. Have they taught that subject before? Are they familiar with the current teaching standards in regards to that particular subject? Do they have any previous experience working with the textbook that your child uses for their class? If your child has learning disabilities or other developmental disabilities, you should look for a tutor who is trained to work with children with special needs.

Find Out When The Tutor Is Available

Ideally, the tutor should be able to work around your child's schedule according to 11plustutorsinessex. The amount of tutoring your child receives should be customized, depending on the goals and objectives that you hope to achieve. For instance, studying for one test usually will take fewer sessions than trying to gain a broader understanding of a subject. Children with special needs may find more frequent tutoring sessions beneficial. With patience, you should be able to find a tutor who has room in their schedule for your child and who is willing to accommodate their needs.

Learn More About How The Tutor Teaches

Every student responds differently to different teaching styles. No single style of teaching is better than another. However, you may find that your child responds better to one style than to another. Find out what methods the tutor uses for teaching. Ask them whether they will bring along additional teaching materials of their own. Additionally, find out if they have any experience with the textbook that your child is using. Sign up for a single lesson before committing to a longer-term contract so that you can see how your child and the tutor interact.

Talk To The Tutor About The Needs Of Your Child

To get the most out of tutoring, communication is essential. Let the tutor know exactly what you hope to accomplish through tutoring. Inform them of any areas where your child is really struggling. If your child's teacher has sent home reports, you should also share those with the tutor so that they can get a better feel for how best to help your child learn.

Find out How You Can Keep Track Of The Progress Your Child Is Making

Typically, the best way to find out how your child is doing is by talking directly to the tutor. Ask them how best to get updates. Some tutors prefer to talk to parents directly after the lesson while others prefer to inform them about the child's progress through email or by phone. You may even want to schedule an appointment with the tutor for an in-depth discussion about your child's response to tutoring. Some tutors even provide reports, outlining the materials that were covered at each lesson and the progress that was made. Keep in mind, however, that you may need to pay additional money for these reports.

  1. My wife was a private home tutor for many years even when she was lecturing in the university. I agree that one has to be smart to select a perfect tutor for good results. The downside is my wife could not pick her students and often had nightmares with their results, unpaid fees and very nasty parents. Perhaps someone should write about ways to find perfect students for a tutor too. LOLOL Wakakaka

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
