What To Consider
Aside from ALL the benefits of hiring a tutor, there are a multitude of things for YOU to consider so you know what exactly to look for.
Here are some powerful questions to help you get started:
– What are you looking to learn more about, or master? This is going to help you niche the content demographic for your future educator.
– If you’re looking for someone else (i.e. a child you interact with or student you teach), what seems to be their biggest setback?
– What ACTUALLY needs to be broadened: the understanding of the content, or methods to better execute it? Some people have harder times understanding the functions of what they’re learning rather than the content itself.
– What are some qualities and characteristics you want to experience with your tutor?
– Are there any other learning accommodations you need to consider?
– Do you learn better in-person, virtually, or a mix?
– What kind of learner are you (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, audiovisual)?
