3 Things You Can Do To Help Your Tutor Excel At Their Job

SAT Training Portola Valley CAAfter you have hired a tutor you are undoubtedly excited about the progress you hope to see your student make. There are a few things you can do as a parent to ensure that your tutor feels comfortable and your student has the best possible tutoring experience.

Provide Helpful Information

Talk to your tutor ahead of time and let them know what your student’s trouble areas are. Determine whether there is a specific subject that needs focus or more focus should be given to study skills andorganization in general. Don’t withhold information you think may help your tutor connect with your student or understand why your student is struggling.

Don’t Hover

Give your tutor space to do their job. Hovering will make your student and your tutor nervous. Trust that your tutor knows what they are doing and give them space to work together. Don’t interject your own opinions. Also, don’t expect your student to change dramatically in a short amount of time. A tutor will give your student the tools they need to succeed and you will see the changes gradually as they put those tools into practice. Eventually, your student should become an independent learner.

Allow Breaks

Care.com points out that breaks are necessary for productivity. A quick break for a snack can help stretch legs, get blood flowing again and improve focus. Much like the rest of our body, brains need breaks too. Don’t get angry with your tutor for allowing your student the time they need to reset and regain focus.

Help Your Tutor Focus on Your Student

These are three simple things that will help your tutor help your child. A tutor is trained to evaluate a student’s needs and give them the tools they need excel in their studies. Help your tutor do their best by giving them the resources and space they need to focus on your student.
