Good Private Tutor Quality

Good Private Tutor Quality

Private tutors or home tutors are very common nowadays, especially in Singapore where this belongs to a million dollar sector. Many teachers and parents choose to hire tutors to reinforce whatever lacks inside in the school. Thus, it gives extra knowledge to the students on specific field or subject. However, in choosing a private tutor, what good qualities do we need to look for?


Most of the tutors excelled in their field of expertise with degrees and academic qualifications to back up their claims. They have adequate knowledge to teach the students in whatever subject they are assigned to teach. Definitely they won't teach subject which they have limited or no knowledge at all. They should be in tract with every detail of each child's school lessons to reinforce them with the correct information and in line with what the school has.


Simple knowledge of a subject is generally insufficient to be a good tutor. A tutor has to have true understanding of a subject. For example, an inexperienced math tutor may know the Quadratic formula but a great tutor can also derive it. A decent Literature tutor understands the plot and themes of To Kill a Mockingbird. But a great tutor also understands the history behind the novel.
A good tutor should be an experienced tutor. The more experienced the tutor is, the more likely he will address the student's issues. Inexperienced tutors should first consider volunteering and tutoring family and friends before charging for their services.


Good communication skills are also necessary and must. A good private tutor must not only know the subject, but they should also be able to explain the subject very well so that the student can understand clearly.
They should be able to track and evaluate each student's performance. On this way, they can assess for any sign or progress or any weaknesses the student may have. It is important so they can proceed with the right action.


Another characteristic of a good tutor is the ability to understand the student's situation. Students who work with tutors generally are frustrated and a tutor should not ever make the situation worse. Also, students can often have learning disabilities so a tutor may need to explain certain aspects differently or use a slower tutoring pace. They should forgive each small things that student may do wrongly.
