If you are new to private tuition you might not be fully prepared or know what to expect. It can be easy to leave it to chance, to assume that the private tutor will guide you fully into the unknown, but it is always best practice to be as prepared as you can be.
Where is the Best Learning Environment?
Each person is different, and when it comes to learning some of us are fine working in a busy café whilst others prefer the ‘hear a pin drop’ quietness of a fine library. For many the comfort of home is key and the only way to truly get stuck into the books and make the memory stick. We find it best to pick a quiet place to learn so that you and your tutor can be uninterrupted during the session.
Think Clearly About Your Goals
This first lesson is all about clearly communicating to your tutor what your aims are and what brought you to hire them. Whether this is a short term goal such as an upcoming exam or a longer term tilt at improving your general capabilities whilst you study, it is important the tutor can gauge exactly where you are currently, and how best to get to where you need to be.
Build the Foundations of a Successful Relationship
Any successful relationship requires a solid foundation and for you to succeed with your academic needs you will need a good rapport with your private tutor. The first lesson will give you both a chance to get to know each other a little better, see how it all works and devise the best way to move forward effectively.
Here at The Education Centre we have a wide range of private tutors available in the Liverpool (and Merseyside) area. They are all fully qualified teachers, have bags of experience and will fully guide you through your first lesson, they’ll just be thankful if you have put in place some simple steps beforehand to help you both maximise the opportunities in front of you.
If you would like to set up your first private tutoring session give us a call today and we will be happy to talk through the specific aspects of your desires and goals. We can then put together a bespoke schedule that suits you and brings out the best results.
