  • The first thing you need to do is determine the need for a home tutor. Understand the requirement such as which type of teacher will be the best for your child? Which subject? Stuff like that.
  • Start searching for multiple tutors and start the interview process.
  • You need to be sure about the subject for which you need a tutor for your child. There might be just a few areas where your child needs help. So, target that area only.
  • Make sure to keep the time and days planned according to your child’s need. How many hours does she/he actually needs tutoring plus number of days in a week?
  • You can try finding a home tutor by either word of mouth, tutoring agencies and the best of them all, Internet.
  • Cross check the credentials of the short-listed tutors to make sure that they disclosed all their qualifications correctly.

Steps for selecting a home tutor

Qualification & Experience
As a parent, you must inquire about the relevant experience of the tutor and his/her qualifications as well. You need to be sure that the tutor is well versed for your child’s level and expertise. There are loads of primary and secondary school teachers who are up for hire. Make sure to get the right one for your child’s future.
Tutoring Skills & Practical Knowledge
Every child has a different set of abilities and skills which need to be nurtured by the home tutor. Children are versatile in nature and they need special care that can motivate them enough to achieve success in the nearing future. As their parent, it is your duty to inquire about all the teaching methodologies and skills of a home tutor.
Communication Skills
An efficient verbal communication is a must when someone is tutoring. An effective communication will help the tutor to build a positive relationship with your child. The tutor must have fluency in communicating with your child. This effect will reflect in your child as they tend to get influenced by their elders.
Tutor’s Ability To Connect With The Students
I know that sounds kind of easy to hear it first, but if a tutor is not connecting with your child, he can lose interest either in the study or in the subject. A true tutor not only just teaches and educates, she/he is responsible for motivating your child in the right direction. Pushing your child to leave her/his comfort zone is the only way of getting success and if a tutor is connected with your child, he/she can be the factor that can accelerate his pace towards success.
An Exam-Oriented Preparation
Your child belongs to a specific cultural background and requires strategies for learning. Exams are not very judgmental but still crossing these ladders are important. You need to make sure that the tutor has enough aptitude to cater the exam needs. He must guide your child with all the practical knowledge of the subject to hone his skills in the subject. He must offer some material of course and educational tools that can help your child to perform well in exams.
What Assessment Tools Does He Use
As a responsible parent, you must be aware of every academic development of your child. So, you must request for feedbacks and periodic reports to showcase your child’s improvement. You must keep a check on the developments of your child’s education as it is the only thing that is going to make future.

Should a child choose the private tutor?

Should a child choose the Private Tutor? Tutors International’s view is that it should always be family’s decision! Tutoring agency, Tutors International, today has published an article that looks at who should be involved in the recruitment process for a private tutor, and what they should look for in the ideal candidate. “You need a private tutor that has the correct educational qualifications, the best match socially and can stimulate the student in the right way for the individual to realise his or her full potential.”
Nearly all homeschool tutoring candidates might look excellent on paper, when reading their CV, having exemplary qualifications and vast experience, so sifting through the list needs to invoke other criteria. Adam Caller, IECA Member and founder of private tutoring agency, Tutors International, published an article that questions the involvement that the students should have in recruiting their homeschool tutor, by giving an advice what they should be looking for.
Involving children in the search for their private tutor may remind the parents of The Perfect Nanny letter from Mary Poppins, “…You must be kind, you must be witty Very sweet and fairly pretty Take us on outings, give us treats Sing songs bring sweets…” and lead to unreasonable demands for a rosy-cheeked, feeble-minded governess, instead of the firm hand, that parents feel are needed to coax their children to learn.
Mr Caller, who has personally overseen the successful placement of countless private tutors worldwide, upon founding Tutors International in 1999, believes that hiring a full-time private tutor is a serious investment in your child’s education. In order to be a fruitful and happy placement, the chosen candidate needs to be welcomed by everyone involved. “Children want to learn, they want to enjoy learning and they want to feel that they have a safe, supportive environment in which to learn,” says Mr Caller. “In all of our job adverts, we state, in their own words, what the children are looking for in their private tutor. It’s very important to us to hear their criteria – and it’s usually very insightful and valid criteria.”
Full-time private tutors that live close to the family, and those that live on-site or travel with a family, spend a lot of time together. With the over several years in some cases, with that family, they become more than a member of the household staff: often they become friends, they need to be a mentor, and assistant, teach new skills to the children, desirably have knowledge of a musical instrument or another language. This is why it is vital that every member of the household meets and ‘interviews’ the final candidates, even at several extended meetings. “You need a private tutor that has the correct educational qualifications, the best match socially and can stimulate the student in the right way for the individual to realize his or her full potential,” emphasizes Mr Caller. “Only by involving every member of the family in the recruitment process can you ensure you find the right candidate in each of these areas.” About Tutors International Tutors International is a worldwide organization that provides experienced private tutors to work with children of all ages and nationalities. Tutors are available for full-time tutoring positions, for major support and tutoring outside school hours, or for home-schooling.
Tutors International provide tutors in a wide variety of situations, including international relocation, after-school support, full-time home tuition, support for AD/HD and dyslexia, home schooling for frequent travellers, college prep, and coaching.

By turning this expertise to recruiting, training and placing other tutors with HNW and UHNW families around the world Tutors International is an excellent resource offering wide experience with prestigious families.
