It’s back to school time. Before we know it the kids we’ll be bringing home homework, potentially lots of it. Some of it will be easy enough to help them with and other assignments might have you scratching our head. That’s why as we head back to school I wanted to share my experience as a tutor, my advice on finding a tutor, and a guide with you of New Jersey tutors available to come to your home, have your student come to their learning center, and even sources for online tutoring.

 

Years ago, before I started having children I went into teaching as an alternate route candidate. I found that as I was working towards my teaching certificate and establishing myself as a teacher, tutoring was a great way to build my teaching experience. Having been a Girl Scout leader, I already knew I loved working with kids. Being able to help students learn and excel in the classroom was just as rewarding as helping young girls earn their first Girl Scout patch or graduate to the next level.

I started tutoring high school students in SAT prep. But even after I got my teaching certificate I continued to tutor. I often think that it was my years of being a math tutor that helped me grow to love math in my adult years. I hated math as a student. All of that changed when I started tutoring. I used to tutor kids from Kindergarten through High School. I’ve tutored for a company that had locations in New Jersey and I’ve tutored in student’s homes, bookstores, and libraries. I’ve had some parents book their tutoring directly through me and some using a site that matches tutors with students. My tutoring experience is broad and diverse. As we begin another school year, I’m looking to use that experience to help you.

 

5 Things to know before hiring a tutor (1)

 

Five things to know before hiring a tutor

  1. What are your goals for your student? What outcomes do you want your child and tutor to achieve together? Having specific goals in mind and communicating them with your potential tutor will go a long way in your tutor-student-parent relationship. Wanting your child to improve their SAT score by 400 points before the next test 2 weeks from now for example is an ambitious goal, but not a realistic one. Share your concerns with tutors your interviewing and ask them what are some reasonable goals that can be set for your child.
  2. Where will your child be tutored? New Jersey tutors can be hired to tutor in your home, a library, or a learning center. While your home may be the most convenient, it’s not always the best place for one-on-one lessons to take place. You want to ensure that wherever your child is being tutored it’s free from distractions like pets, siblings, and other background noises.
  3. What is your child’s schedule like? When does he/she have availability for tutoring? If they have afterschool, early evenings, and weekends available, then you have a lots of options. If their schedule is a little more erratic or they need tutoring outside of typical times, an online tutor may be a better option.
  4. What is your schedule like? Do you need to be at tutoring sessions? Will your child want you there? If tutoring is to happen in your home, an at home tutor may require that you or another adult be in the home. If you’re visiting a tutoring center located in New Jersey you’ll need to plan for the time to travel there, particularly if you are going into a highly congested area at rush hour.
  5. How do you want to pay for tutoring? There are a variety of ways tutors handle payment. Some may take cash only. Others may accept checks, credit cards, and even PayPal. A tutoring center or larger tutoring program may sell tutoring in packages or require a deposit. A home tutor might work on a week-to-week basis. If you know you are interested in tutoring beyond a few hours ask about specials and discounts for prepaying for a block of tutoring sessions.

Thinking about these things and communicating them with any tutors you hire will go a long way towards a successful student-tutor-parent relationship. It helps your tutor create a plan for your child that is both realistic and reasonable.
