What I Would Look For If I Was Getting A Maths Tutor For My Child

Finding the right tutor for your child is important. There are a many tutoring programs and private tutors out there. If I was looking for a Maths tutor for my child, I would want a Maths tutor who:

  • Knows their stuff.
  • Can relate to my child.
  • Has a working with children check.
  • Has experience tutoring school students.
  • Has at least 10 good testimonials from students and/or parents.
  • Will let me sit in on the lesson if the tutoring takes place in their home.
  • Will help my child with specifically what they need help with.
  • Will set homework at the end of each lesson.
  • Will check the homework in the next lesson.
  • Will give me feedback at the end of each lesson.
  • Will encourage my child even if they get the wrong answers.

These are the key qualifications, qualities and personal traits that I would look for in a Maths tutor. This is only the starting place and over time I would assess how my child was liking the tutoring and how much they were improving and either continue with the tutoring or look again for another tutor.
