Things to Consider When Choosing A Chemistry Tutor for You Child

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your child is having difficulty with high school chemistry and you need to find him a tutor. Some parents have had a bad experience with home tutors previously and think choosing a home tutor is a difficult task. However, by taking into consideration the following factors, you can ensure you pick out the best tutor for your child.


Cost Often, it is the cost of the tutor and budget which determine which tutor will be hired. Tutor's fee may vary according to their qualifications, certifications, and teaching experience. It will also depend on the number of classes per week that you are hiring them for and the duration of each class. The higher the qualification of the tutor, the higher will be the fee. A university qualified tutor will charge you more as compared to a student tutor who is teaching part-time. One common mistake you might make is to offer the teacher a rate lower than the market. A good tutor might stick for a while but in the end will leave for a higher-paying job. The tutor might not vest that much interest in tutoring if the pay is very low.


Referrals Many times, good tutors can be found through referrals. Ask your child's friends, their parents and people in your neighborhood if they know of any good chemistry teacher. This way you will have a better idea about the teaching style and fee of the teacher. It is also easier for children to accept teachers who have been recommended by their friends.

Experience of tutor:

Experience of tutor People scoring the highest in academics may not necessarily be the best of tutors. To choose a tutor, you should look for their teaching experience too. A good teacher will be able to convert difficult concepts into very easy ones. They will also make use of examples and activities to ingrain a concept in a student's mind. The tutor should be one who can adapt to each child's needs.

Familiarity with chemistry syllabus:

Familiarity with chemistry syllabus Is the tutor familiar with the chemistry syllabus? If your child needs a tutor for preparation of an AP chemistry exam or SAT II chemistry exam, does the tutor know the syllabus in-and-out and will he be able to give your child valuable tips and tricks? You can also phone the tutor's previous clients and ask them about the experience they had with the tutor. If he is a good tutor, he will have no problem sharing the number of someone who hired them previously.
