10 Tips for Choosing the Best Tutor

Make sure your tutor…

  1. … Makes you complete a diagnostic test before you begin preparation
  2. … Uses the initial diagnostic to customize the preparation to you. Let’s say you get 65% of the question right. Make sure your tutor will focus on the 35% of the questions you got wrong.
  3. … Teaches strategies for test-taking
  4. … Gives customized quizzes that focus on the areas in which you need the most help
  5. … Has training specifically in the test he or she teaches.
  6. … Has their own workbooks that cover everything.
  7. … Works with comprehensive lessons that include tips, tricks and curricular material.
  8. … Provides parents with feedback on the student’s progress.
  9. … Offers flexible hours to accommodate busy students.
  10. … Will assign a good deal of homework, so a student can have fewer lessons, saving money for the parents.
