Top 6 Questions to ask a prospective tutor
It is not easy finding the ‘right’ tutor and you want to make sure that your money is spent wisely. Here are our top 6 questions that you should ask of any prospective tutors
What syllabus have they studied?
Has the tutor taken the time to understand the specific curriculums? A tutor might be good at teaching algebra but not so strong on multiplication. Do they know how your child will be assessed? All the tutors on Tutor Koala have their exam results available to view
Can they address your child's key challenges?
You should be open and honest about the areas that your child is struggling with. Is your prospective tutor carefully listening to your needs? Do they provide any suggestions at the end of the first meeting?
How are their communication skills?
Do they reply promptly to messages? Are they attentive and good listeners? All these are signs as to whether they will be the ‘right’ fit for your child. All tutors on Tutor Koala are interviewed prior to being allowed into the Tutor Koala community
How will you measure progress?
Its important to measure progress. How will they do this? What strategies / plans have they used before.
What can I do to help you and my child?
All Tutor Koala lessons are recorded. This is to help keep our community safe. Does the tutor make any suggestions as to how you can help facilitate learning? Suggestions alone put the tutor in a good light.
