When you are paying for your student’s tutoring, you want some guarantee that the tutoring will help your student excel. Before you sign up for an extensive tutoring or test prep program find out what their guarantee includes. Here are six steps for the perfect tutoring guarantee.
A tutoring program should be suited to your student’s needs. A one size fits all program is likely to result in too many or too few sessions. A tutoring program that evaluates your students needs and sets appropriate goals is more likely to be satisfactory for you and your student.
2) No Contingencies
A guarantee shouldn’t be contingent on your student doing a certain amount of homework. A guarantee should help your student reach their goals using methods that are manageable for them. One on one time addressing problem areas is more likely to boost confidence than hours of homework that are impossible to accomplish.
3) No Limits
A test prep guarantee should provide the help your student needs to reach their goals without a limited number of sessions. The guarantee should ensure that your student will get the help they need without you reaching too deep into your wallet.
4) No Minimums
If your student doesn’t need 20 sessions to reach their goals, you shouldn’t have to pay for them. A guarantee should ensure that you won’t be penalized when your student achieves their desired test score with fewer test prep sessions than expected.
5) Keep Working
If your student isn’t satisfied with their test score, they should have the opportunity to continue to work with their test prep instructor. Some circumstances arise on test day that can unexpectedly impact a score. A test prep instructor should continue to offer support when a test doesn’t go as anticipated.
6) A Ceiling
You should know up front the most you will be expected to pay. You don’t want to have to continue to pay for more and more test prep sessions. Based on the goals your tutor makes with your student you should have a guarantee of “this much and no more.” Then you will know your financial commitment before your student gets started.
A Financial Commitment
At Mr. Test Prep we understand that test prep is a financial commitment and you want it to have positive results for your student. That is why we promise that your student will meet their goals no matter what, but you will only have to pay for the number of sessions we estimated your student would need. You can quit anytime without paying for sessions you don’t need and you will never pay more than you expected. Don’t be surprised and disappointed by other tutors that offer less extensive guarantees.
