What makes an excellent tutor?
When tutors are good, they are great. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following must-have traits.
- Friendly and compassionate. There is no point forcing your child to work with a tutor that doesn’t treat them with kindness and compassion.
- Knowledge of specific topics. For high school students, you will need a more specialised tutor with expert knowledge of not just their subject area, but also the standardised curriculum.
- Real results. If you are investing in a tutor, you want to see real results. The tutor should be excellent at explaining complex concepts and set homework tasks that produce fantastic improvements.
- Well priced. If you’re looking to hire a tutor long-term, look for an individual or company that charges a fair rate.
